I’ve been recently covering the various technologies digital media salespeople need to be familiar with. So far I’ve covered marketing techad tech,  real time bidding tech, presentation tech, file hosting & sharing tech, news gathering tech and social media tech.

Today I’m covering social sharing tech.

Social Sharing Tech

auto-postingThis particular type of tool, also called auto posting tools,  is for the more advanced users out there who, as with everything else I’ve shared so far, need to save time wherever possible.

Social sharing tech are linkers and connectors that allow for easy sharing to your multiple accounts of contents and posts you feel have value for your audiences. These allow for simple sharing across networks as well as post automation across networks. For example, if you constantly cut and paste your LinkedIn posts to Facebook or Twitter, or your blog articles to any one or multiple social accounts, these tools allow you to connect one with another through RSS feeds and set rules. The rules you can set include a maximum to publish each day which is important to limit to a low number on Facebook and LinkedIn while it’s perfectly fine (recommended even) to put it really high on Twitter. They also allow for a time delay if you want thing to appear at different time versus simultaneously.

If you regularly share news, thoughts or links to your network of contacts to demonstrate your know-how and the kind of value you can bring your clients, I highly recommend you look into this type of solution to save you precious time while extending your reach and frequency.

Some of the social sharing automation solutions include: Stream Send,, IFTTT, Buffer App, Hootsuite, TweetDeck, Sprout Social, RSS Graffiti and OnlyWire.

You probably noticed that some of the social media aggregators and social listening tools offer this automation service as well.

If you host a blog with WordPress, you might consider these plugins: Jetpack Publicize, WP-AutoSharePost, 1-Click Retweet/Share/Like, SocialPublish, NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster, MailChimp Social. Many of these also exist for the Joomla platform.
