Getting Started with FPTraffic
First off, thank you for signing up for FPTraffic! We would not be able to do our job without you :)
Here is a step-by-step guide for getting started with FPTraffic.
1. Create Your Post Schedule
The first step for getting started is creating a Schedule for FPTraffic to use to post to your Profiles. Each Profile has its own schedule.
Our posting schedules work a little different than other social media schedulers. You simply select the hours you would like us to post to your Profile and we'll automatically post for you during that hour. For example, if you set your schedule to post at 4:00pm, FPTraffic will automatically post to that Profile every day between 4:00-4:59pm (typically posts go out before the :50 of each hour). We post randomly during the hour to make your posts look more organic.
To create your post Schedule, follow these simple instructions:
- Go to: https://my.fptraffic.com/schedules
- Select your Profile
- Select the hours you would like to post and click Save Schedule.
You can post up to 24 times a day (every hour), but we recommend you start with 2-3 times a day.
Once you have your post Schedule created, it's time to find some content to post!

2. Fill Your Content Library
We have several content tools available on FPTraffic that you can use to add posts for us to publish to your Profiles. We store these posts in your Content Library.
You can use our Content Finder to find content from 8 different sources based on keyword. We can search billions of photos and you can schedule them to post to your Profile with a click of your mouse!

- Drag and drop your posts so they are published to your Profile in the order you want.
- Click on any post to add a description and first comment to help drive more engagement.
