Hootsuite is a social media management app that supports network integrations for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and WordPress. Content from social streams can easily be delivered through any of your configured social networks. Hootsuite has over 10 million users and displays content by topic rather than by poster. You might consider using the Hootsuite application if you are currently using Hootsuite and do not want to change your workflow or if you are looking for content that might be beneficial to your followers. Your Zift123 social streams are available directly on the Hootsuite dashboard which allows for quick and easy posting of syndicated content.

The Zift123 App Connector allows users to import their Zift123 social streams to Hootsuite and publish content to the social networks they have set-up in Hootsuite. The app connector is automatically enabled when you log into your Zift123 account through Hootsuite.

Important: The Hootsuite connector requires partners to know their Zift credentials. Partners that single sign on to Zift and do not know their Zift credentials wil not be able to use this connector.


You should be familiar with the following topics before continuing:

  • Zift123 Username
  • Zift123 Password
  • Hootsuite login

Note: A Hootsuite Pro subscription is required to use the Zift123 app. A free 30-day trial of Hootsuite Pro is available for new users.
