The ability to share your updates on Facebook instantly in real time globally with your fans without busting the budget for email addresses is unprecedented. Who reads those emails anyway?
Here's how it works:
Let's assume you have a Facebook page and 100 people that have "liked" your page.
When you post a blog article link, short relevant note, or promotional offer to your business Facebook page it then appears instantly on the news feed of all 100 Facebook people who have liked your page. With little effort or cost, you have the power sitting at your desk to create 100 impressions in real time.

Businesses can now find new channels of distribution, collect data, post questions and receive suggestions directly with the people who count the most in ways that are faster than ever before.

To quickly create a social post, click on the "Social Post" tab on the menu. Enter your social post, select when to post, and select your post channels (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc). Click the submit button and you're done!
If you want to create a new social or blog post from a template, simply click on the type of post on the "Campaign" screen. You will then see several different categories, including OnFast's pre-made templates and a blank document. Choose one of the two; if you elect to use one of OnFast's pre-made templates, choose a category, such as "Promote a product" or "Launch company." Then choose a specific document you 'd like to work from (you can see a preview of each template by clicking the "See sample" button).
You will then be asked to enter information about your company (see below). Generally, you will only have to enter this information once, although each template is written with a different purpose in mind so some questions will be unique. Once you have filled out the short form, click the "Preview" button to see your draft post.
