Integrate HootSuite feed

  • Updated

To share content to your Hootsuite account, Content Marketing Platform (CMP) uses the Feed API to pass a curated feed of your content across into an RSS Reader on the Hootsuite side. The article goes on social channels in your Hootsuite account. Each system does not share account credentials. To share on social media, content must already be published on your website because CMP must await the pixel in your content to pass back the link to that article.

HootSuite setup on CMP

  1. Select your avatar > Social Accounts
  2. Scroll to HootSuite Feed Accounts and click Add a HootSuite Account.


  3. Enter a name and click Create. The account displays in the list.


  4. Click Export to obtain the Feed URL.


HootSuite setup on the Syndicator app

Install the Hootsuite Syndicator app to your account before proceeding. You can also access the App Directory from your Hootsuite account.

  1. Go to the app in your Streams view.
  2. Click Subscribe to Feeds. The Feed Manager view displays.


  3. Click Add Feeds.
  4. Paste the Feed URL that you exported into this box and click Done.


  5. Although your feed is added to the Subscriptions view, it is not visible until you click Play.


  6. To share across social platforms, click Share.


    • You can customize your Syndicator account to show content from multiple feeds.
    • You can star or favorite individual articles, add notes to each, and share them with Amplify.
    • You can access the Quick Start Guide for Syndicator here. (Sign-in required)
  7. Clicking Share opens the Legacy Composer view, which lets you schedule, customize, and post content to any social channels you may have set up in your Hootsuite account. 


    You can also schedule the post for a time or date in the future and edit this scheduled post in the New Composer if you require that functionality.
