My experience with the program so far
Using social media to share your blog posts is a great way to promote your website or business opportunities, and it sets you up as an authority in your niche, allowing your content to get viewed by thousands of social media visitors and even search engines to certain extent.
Blog2Social is a WordPress plugin used for social media posting that you can use to cross-promote any of your new content, post, or business opportunities to all your social media pages. It is a convenient social media posting plugin that offers all-in-one solution for many websites, blogs owners and even internet marketers.
Ever since I discovered Blog2Social Plugin, it helps me to automate my social media activities and have saved me a great deal of time in managing my social media post. What this plugin will do is, it will automatically convert your post into a proper format that allows you to post content directly from your WordPress dashboard to your social media pages. Hence, saved you time to post to your social media accounts one by one manually, plus you can automate your posts by using the auto-scheduling, auto-posting and cross-promotion.
Blog2Social supports 15 social networks [as of the date of this review], including the giants like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. It also supports other platforms like Flickr, Reddit, Medium, Google My Business, VKontakte, Bloglovin, Tumblr, Torial, Flickr, Diigo, Reddit and many more.
To have this plugin auto post your content, all you have to is, connect your WordPress blog to all your social media accounts and each time you create a new blog post, it will automatically share your post to all your social media networks profiles, pages, and even groups.
Blog2Social comes in two flavours, it offers a free version as well as Pro version with a 30-day trial. But it really comes down to you if it is going to be worth the upgrade. For me personally, although I'm a Pro member, you probably don't need to upgrade to the premium version if you are not an active blogger or internet marketers and running only few social media account. But if you are, then maybe try it for free first and later consider upgrading. What I Like
What I Dislike
- Saved time, where it will automatically post to all your registered social media accounts every time you publish a new blog post.
- Option that allows you to create your own time schedule to share your post
- The One-Stop Workflow feature allows you to customize the messages and preview them before they are published
- The easy-to-use drop and drag user interface allows you to move posts in the calendar view.
- Add hastags, links and tags
- Ability to curate content from other trusted third-party sources.
- Support over 15 Social Media networks
- Great way to draw more traffic to your social media pages and your blog
- You can revisit and review all of your published and scheduled social media posts in the calendar
Although the plugin allows you to make changes by editing each of the messages. Unfortunately, you don't have the option to choose the placement of the URL in the message. Final Verdict
There are many ways on how you can promote your blog post to social media, and I do admit that prior to knowing about this plugin, I had spent a great amount of time just to post my new blog post one by one manually. This plugin has made my life easier, at least as far as posting to social media is concerned. Not only it is easy to use plugin for your WordPress, but it also allows you to simplify, automate and speed-up the process in promoting your blog.
I would highly recommend that you give Blog2Social a try, you probably don't need to upgrade to the premium version. Maybe just try the free version first. If you like the results you get, then maybe consider upgrading.
