No one cares about your blog.
Well they may, but when you post, unless you already have a captive audience of fans that wait on baited breath for you new posts, you need to go out in the world and find people where they are and let them know you have a new post up!
The best way to do this is to share your post or links to your post in social media and other platforms.
Now we all know that it would take forever to manually share all the content we produce (or produce or share for others we work with or clients).
Fortunately, a bunch of tools and apps have been developed and released in recent years to help content creators manage their content marketing:
Hootsuite, Coschedule, Buffer, Edgar, Tailwind, Boardbooster, Crowdfire and Klout are awesome, wonderful and fantastic such tools that I have used in the past and currently use to widely distribute content automatically, and to drip it out periodically across various social channels.
However, recently, I discovered a new tool called ViralTag that combines the functionalities of all of those other platforms in one and lets me access multiple different social accounts on different platforms from within.
It has all the functionalities of the other platforms in one!
What I think is one of the best parts of ViralTag is the ability to quickly create a Pinterest poster or graphic for the post from within in ViralTag using Canva.
I do not need to log out and log into Canva, create the graphic and log back into ViralTag. I can access it from the tool, and then save the images I’ve designed in there in case I need to go back in to tweak it, update it or alter it slightly for A/B Testing purposes.
Viral Tag is FREE to start but then cost from $29 per month up.
If you’re on a tight budget, you may think that’s one more monetary output for you but if your blog or website generates income, that nominal fee is a still quite a steal. If you were to sign up to use some or all of the other tools I mention above, you’d end up spending way more anyway
It’s hard to explain how it works by just sharing in text so I did a YouTube Tutorial to show you how ViralTag works and how it compares to these other tools.
