Integration

Make, curate, and schedule posts and videos to your channels

What does the YouTube integration do?

The one-click YouTube integration allows you to make and schedule posts and video uploads on your YouTube channels. It also allows you to collect analytics data from YouTube and track leads coming from posts and ads you run on YouTube. You can specify which of your users have which level of access to which YouTube channels, and whether or not their posts require approvals.

How do I setup the YouTube integration?

In Social Hero, go to Profiles > YouTube and click Add. You'll be asked to verify your YouTube credentials once in order to connect our third-party posting API to your account, then you'll be asked to select all of the channels that you want to manage with Social Hero. And that's it! You can then assign access to each page and group to whichever users you please.

Support for the YouTube integration

YouTube occasionally disconnects API connections if they are not used for a period of time. In this case, you'll be notified in the Profiles section and asked to repeat the one-click connection. YouTube also occasionally rejects some posts sent by API if they violate any of YouTube's Terms of Use, include an attachment that exceeds the size limit for YouTube posts, or are sent at times of high traffic and Internet latency. In this case, you'll be immediately notified on your dashboard and email of the failed post and the reason it was rejected, with suggestions on how to fix the post or when to retry.
