I love stuff that saves me time, don’t you? One of my favorite tools just keeps getting easier to use. This plugin ROCKS.
If you are a newsletter subscriber, you’ve probably read about my favorite plugins for bloggers (it’s also available as a blog post). That was more than six months ago. This particular plugin really saves me time and has changed since I last wrote about it.
Scheduling Social Media Right from Your Blog Post
Many people love Hootsuite or Sprout Social. They are both great social sharing management apps, but they don’t quite fit me when it comes to my blog. For one thing, both require you to login and jump through several hoops when I just want to write and quickly promote a post.
This is why Post Promoter Pro is a time saving rock star. You can take care of your promotional Tweets, Facebook, and LinkedIn posts from the comfort of your WordPress dashboard. It is really user friendly!
Promote Your Blog Post While It Has Your Attention
The reason it is simpler to work on promotional tweets, etc. while you are in the blog post dashboard? It is easier to get quotes from your post, you can quickly look up the pictures to go with your promotions and decide on your exact schedule for them. You don’t have to login to a social media app, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.; you simply schedule it to your social networks in one step! That saves time!
Take a look at this no-nonsense dashboard that appears below the "Edit Post" dashboard.
There is a tab for Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook (not shown, I use FB directly). For scheduled tweets, the dash tracks how many characters you can use and turns red if you go over. You can schedule several tweets (love that part). LinkedIn tab doesn’t offer multiple schedule posts, but you can have it go out to LinkedIn at the time of publication.
Not Sure Where to Get the URL for Your Image?
Just to go the Media Library in your WordPress dashboard, click on the image, and the URL will be to the right. Or just save time, click on the upload icon for the image URL in Post Promoter Pro, and it will take you straight to the Media Library! Easy peasy!
