In PromoRepublic, you can boost your Facebook posts with PromoRepublic. Here, you will find a detailed guide on how to adjust boosting for a particular post:


But in this article, we'd like to explain what boosted posts icons and statuses mean.

🟠 To start, choose the boosting type: Manage My Boosting or Propose Others To Boost. Depending on it, further requirements and settings will differ. 

📍 Under Manage My Boosting, a boosted post is marked with the blue rocket icon in the Calendar, as shown below.

📍 Under Propose Others To Boost, a boosted post will be proposed for approval, so it will be highlighted in orange color and it will be marked with the red rocket icon as pictured below. 

Hitting on Approve, you will be informed that the post is suggested for boosting, so a payment method must be added.

🔸 If you want to decline the boosting, click the Approve post without boosting button. Thus, the boosting settings will be discarded, but the post will be approved and, as a result, published. 

🔸 Upon clicking Add Payment Method, you will be redirected to the billing form. 

If you approve the suggested settings for boosting, feel free to proceed with the payment. If you want to change any of the settings offered, you can do it.

Once the boosting setup is completed, both the post and its promotion will be considered approved on the PromoRepublic end. ☝🏽 Once the post is moderated by Facebook, which may take a maximum of up to 2 days, it will be live. 

IMPORTANT: If, for any reason you want to delete the boosted post, its promotion will stop automatically. 

If you suggested a boosted post for several pages and you want to edit the post settings, you'll have to make the edits on each page separately. As a workaround, delete the post with the Bulk Delete option and repeat the flow, making the necessary changes.

📙 Here is a list of statuses which boosted posts can be assigned. Please be familiar with them to understand whether all is well with your posts.

  • Waiting for setup - the post's set-up is to be completed;

  • Waiting for payment method - the post hasn't been approved yet (under the Propose Others To Boost mode);

  • Waiting for publishing - the boost setup is complete, but the post hasn't been saved yet, or it may be scheduled but not actually published yet.

  • Post wasn’t boosted due to an error - there was an error caused by many reasons, so you need to reach out to our Customer Support Service for investigation;

  • Active - the post promotion is up and running smoothly;

  • Paused, Adset paused, Campaign paused - the post promotion has been paused. Note that it can be done in the Facebook Ads Manager, but not yet in PromoRepublic interface;

  • Adset paused - this status means the same as the one above;

  • Deleted - either the boosting settings or the post itself were deleted;

  • Archived - the ad has been archived;

  • Pending Review - the post is being moderated by Facebook;

  • Disapproved - the post has been declined by Facebook. Head over to your Ads Manager in Meta Business Suite to know the reason;

  • Preapproved - the post will be approved by Facebook;

  • Pending billing info - the payment is being processed;

  • In process - the boosting settings are being saved in Facebook;

  • With issue - there's something wrong with the post. Head over to the Ads Manager in the Meta Business Suite to know the reason.

In order to see the boosting settings of the post, click on it, and it will expand to a larger view, as pictured below. 

We hope it was helpful.
