    I'm working on a new business marketing to local businesses and individuals. One thing on my radar is creating and maintaining their social media profiles.

    Is there a form that can be used for online input of all their information (on their side) that I could then use to import a profile into facebook, linkedin, twitter, etc?

    So for example, fields 1, 2, 6, 8, 9 10 are for facebook, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8 are for linkedin, etc.

    I don't believe that any of those allow importing of profiles, but just wonder if it's possible to make a script that will do what I'm thinking.

    I am not very technical so the finished product would have to be pretty "plug and play" for me to understand it.

    Any ideas?

    Hi bbullet,

    did u make any progress on this? What I usually do is to let my clients fill out a form (hint: find the necessary fields at the link below) and let my guys in the Philippines set up the profiles. I sell that as "claim your identity and secure your brand". There are as well sites like http://knowem.com/ who can do the registration for you for a large amount of sites.

    Some other thoughts: There is an Excel file around here in the forum, which registers a bunch of social media profiles. The macros in the Excelfile are outdated though and I don't know how well it works. Or maybe iMacro can do some work for you as well?

    In any case, I would be interested in what your status is and maybe we could setup something together, as this is a common problem when you do social media consulting/marketing.

    Cheers, BHR

    Thanks for the reply. No progress on this yet, but definitely see the need for this.

    Let's talk about getting this piece designed and maybe even turn it into a saleable product. I'm sure we're not the only ones trying to reinvent the wheel.

    Indeed, I am sure there would be a lot of demand - although I am too busy with some other projects, maybe later :). Take care mate!
