How to Link Facebook, LinkedIn, Blogger, Etc to Your OnFast Account

Once you've signed up for an OnFast account, in order to fully utilize the services OnFast has to offer, you will need to link your social network and blog accounts to OnFast. This enables our software to automatically schedule and post your coupons via social network and blog posts, saving you both time and money. 

To either link new accounts or view your already linked accounts, click the "Social Networks and Blogs" link on the "Home" screen. There will either be a manage or add button next to each social network and blog, depending on whether you've already linked the account. To add a new account, click on the "Add Link" button. This will take you to the social network/blog's setup screen . Once on that screen, click on the "Add Link" button (see below).

The Rationale for a Small Business to Blog and Blog Often

In these challenging economic times small businesses with limited advertising budgets need all the help they can muster.  Traditional legacy forms of advertising that utilize cumbersome ad agencies and media gatekeepers are not a cost effective answer.

Today, tech savvy businesses are turning to Internet based campaigns that seek to build trusted relationships by interacting with potential customers directly.

Surprisingly, one of the most effective ways to get noticed on the Internet is often overlooked.  Enter the Blog (a blend of the term "web" and log).  Basically, a Blog is a business or personal journal published on the Internet

A typical Blog combines text, images, links to Web pages and most importantly, social media sites.
