Social Media Network Publishing content to social media sites can consume a lot of your valuable time. By the time you’ve updated Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and then posted on your website, hours of productive time can be lost. Multiply that across multiple posts and Social Media becomes more of a liability than an asset!
Fortunately, there are ways to streamline your efforts… What if you could post once on your website, and have the resulting content appear like magic on your Facebook business page, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts? If you’re a heavy-duty social media user, with multiple accounts across a dozen or so popular sites, you could save some SERIOUS time with the Auto Publisher plugin for WordPress!
The network publishing process is free for 1 website with 2 social media networks, so if you’re an FB & LinkedIn user, it’s not going to cost you anything. Publishing up to 10 websites across 200 Social Media links is a very modest $4.99 per month. Given the potential to save innumerable hours of work, that’s a very good deal indeed. Payment can be done via the PayPal subscription process so it’s also “set and forget.” If you have no idea what shape your social media profile is in, ask for a content audit.
How Social Media Network Publishing Works
Like all complex setup processes that solve awkward problems, it’s not a 5-minute job. However, given the future time-saving potential, think of it as an investment…
1.) Download and install the Social Media Auto Publish plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-media-auto-publish/
Once you’ve installed and configured the plugin as per the instructions and FAQ:
- Add your website
- Add your Networks (Social Media accounts)
- Use the Publish option to connect your website to each of your Social Media networks
At that point, you are done with the set-up part of the process. From that point onwards, publishing a new post on your website automatically publishes to the Social Media accounts you’ve created.
There are of course other plugins that are more or less designed to do a similar job.
If you are technically challenged and can’t be bothered with the complexities of getting it all setup, this is one of my search engine optimization services options and I’d be happy to do it all for you, for a modest fee.
