Have you ever thought about how you could leverage all that content you’ve saved up in Pocket?

In this post, I will cover how to setup the integration between Pocket and Publicate, why these two tools are so awesome together, and give a few extremely easy ways to turn links saved in Pocket into valuable content assets on Publicate.
First, here is a brief intro to both of these tools…
Possibly the most famous bookmarking platform online, with over 17 million users and 1500 apps integrated. It started out as Read it Later, which describes what Pocket is perfect for, you find a great piece of content, but want to save it so you can read it later when you have more time, with multiple ways to save content and fantastic mobile apps Pocket is perfect for it.
A tool for content marketers that makes it easier than ever to create lead generating content assets like newsletters, roundup blog posts and resource hubs from the content they are already sharing and producing.
They form the ultimate way to use all of the content that you have already saved in Pocket to easily create engaging content assets in Publicate so that you can share with your customers and generate more leads, with no extra effort!
First things first, let’s get the integration setup. Then, I’ll cover some really cool ways you can put the Pocket and Publicate integration into action.
First things first you need to have a Pocket account, if you don’t yet, you can get one here.
Then all you need to do is open the workspace settings for the workspace that you want to add Pocket to, which you can find in the left menu, then scroll down to see the ‘Connect a integration’ section, simply click on “Connect Pocket”;
Once Pocket loads its permission widow follow the steps and authorise Publicate’s access, then sit back and watch the content start arriving in Publicate.
And that’s it. Now everything you have or will add to Pocket will always be in Publicate.
Now you have the Publicate Pocket integration setup, it’s time to start curating content that you know you can want to add to the content assets you want to share with everyone…
Here are just a few ways you can get the most out of integrating Pocket and Publicate.
If you use Pocket then you are already saving fantastic content as you browse the web, and chances are you have now built up a really valuable resource.
