Building your social media presence has certain taxes on your time and energy. Communicating with followers on Twitter, for example, can be either productive or destructive, as Twitter can easily switch from being a promotional tool to a time-consuming distraction.
While you want to maintain a certain receptivity and connectivity to your Facebook and Twitter followers, you also want to be able to limit your time on these social media platforms. Because simply reposting your content onto your Facebook page and groups can take a small but vital chunk of your time.
Luckily there are certain WordPress plugins that can easily and efficiently perform these functions for you. One such plugin is NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster. This plugin automatically publishes the latest posts from your blog to a diverse array of social networking accounts such as: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Blogger, Tumblr, Stumbleupon, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Plurk, YouTube, WordPress, and others. The plugin also works with profiles, business pages, community pages, groups, etc.
Reach Out to Your Whole Audience with the Click of a Button
In essence, NextScripts’s complete in its features and functions, as it allows you to reach the whole of your audience by reposting your content on every social media platform that you are active in.
After all, it is these social media platforms that ultimately allow your content to spread through word-of-mouth. Getting them onto each platform, then, is crucial. Doing it manually, however, is a tremendous waste of precious time that you could otherwise use for writing more content and marketing the site itself.
The great thing about NextScripts is that it also comes with certain features that perform other useful functions for you.
1. Post Scheduling
This simple feature allows you to do just that, publish your posts immediately, or schedule them at a later date.
2. URL Shortener
A URL shortener built into the plugin is a great time-saving function, as shortening URLs is important, especially on Twitter where there’s a limit to the number of characters that you can include in a single tweet. It saves you the time of having to shorten the URL yourself.
3. Auto Import Comments From Social Networks
If you can consolidate all your comments into a single space, what better way to create more value and community within your website. Why is this important? Picture this for a moment:
Imagine if one of your Facebook comments adds certain value and information to your post, information that you wish the rest of your viewers would seeâ€”but that comment doesn’t appear on your website. Importing those comments onto your site, then, create a richer experience for anyone and everyone that visits your site.
4. Inclusion/Exclusion of Certain Pages, Posts, and Categories
This feature simply gives you more control over which posts, pages, or categories that you want to show on each of your social media accounts. It’s useful, for example, if you want to promote certain types of posts on your social networks more than others.
NextScripts is easily and simple to use, and it gets the job done. That’s all you really need for such a WordPress plugin. With it, you gain quick and easy access to your social media accounts and can therefore focus instead on marketing, promotions, or increasing traffic.
