About Quick Promote

Quick Promote allows all professionals to seamlessly run an ad campaign on X with just a few clicks. After selecting a promotable post from their timeline, professionals can further customize their Quick Promote campaign by defining targeting (via location, age, and gender) and campaign duration.


Quick Promote lets you quickly and easily promote posts to a larger audience in a few simple clicks. It’s an ideal tool for professionals who would like to promote their posts without having to use the X Ads campaign manager.

All Professional Account users with a X Ads account can access Quick Promote. 

You can convert to a Professional Account in the Quick Promote campaign flows. To learn how to make an ad account, click here.

Follow these steps to launch your Quick Promote campaign:

  1. Find the post you would like to promote from your Timeline and click the “Post Activity” button. 

  2. Click “Promote this post"

  3. From there you will be able to define your target audience, your budget, and the campaign’s duration. You will be able to see an estimate of how many impressions and engagements you’ll receive from the promotion as you configure.


    • If you do not have a credit card on file, you will be prompted to add your credit card and billing details. 


  4. After reviewing your promotion, click “Create Promotion”.

  5. Once your campaign is approved, your post will begin showing as a promoted post in user timelines. 

You can customize your Quick Promote campaign by defining your target audience, budget, and duration. 

  • Audience Targeting:

    • You can target by location (country and city level), age, and gender. 

  • Budget:

    • You can choose between nine options, ranging from $10 USD to $5,000 USD (or your local equivalent). 

  • Duration:

    • You can choose to run your campaign for up to 30 days.

Posts promoted with Quick Promote look like any other ad in your X Timeline.

You can easily review the results of your Quick Promote campaign by clicking on the “Post Activity” icon on any of your promoted posts. 

Note: You will only be able to see the Post Activity data for your own posts and you can not promote other user’s posts.

You can update your Quick Promote campaign from X Ads Manager at any time during the campaign’s duration. 

Once in X Ads Manager, you can select the post you’ve promoted with Quick Promote and click on the Edit button to make your updates.
