Save Money and Time With a Content Submission Tool

by Guest Blogger: Shane Barker

Save Money and Time With a Content Submission Tool
In these frugal times, we are often asked to do more with less.  How do you expand your social media presence while meeting your other marketing obligations, all with the same resources as before?  Red Bull and Starbucks can only get you so far!  Okay, here’s a hint: you can’t buy it or hire it.  The answer is simple: by saving time!  Time is the most important resource you have, but since you don’t have to report it to the IRS, you probably aren’t paying attention to how you’re spending it.  How much time do you spend posting on multiple social media sites to maintain your social presence?  Let’s see how your small business or startup can save time using a content submission tool.

What is a Content Submission Tool?
A content submission tool is used to automate posting to multiple websites or social communities.  After you sign up for an account, you enter profile information for your social media accounts and authorize the tool to post your content for you.  Some tools allow you to coordinate seamlessly across multiple team members.  For example, one person can draft a blog post or press release, another can make tweaks, and yet another can approve and publish the content.   With the click of a button, the final content is automatically posted to your social communities for you.  Various reporting features help you easily track what you have published and where it has been posted.

Free Yourself From Manual Posting
If you’re the manager, you decide which tasks are performed in-house and which jobs are outsourced.  If you’re the only one running the show, chances are you get to do it all!  Using a content submission tool frees you from manually posting your blogs, articles and press releases to social media sites.  You can focus your limited time and capital on quality content development, customer acquisition and customer retention.

Take Advantage of Automation Tools
When selecting a content submission tool, you’ll want to choose one that has automation tools such as Plugins and a developer API.  For example, a WordPress Plugin allows you to automatically submit your blog posts to multiple sites.  A developer API, or application program interface, is a way for different websites to communicate openly with each other for sharing content.  Rather than hiring a programming guru to accomplish the sharing by exchanging and embedding HTML or other code among websites, a developer API can do the sharing for you.

Track Your Content Submission Performance
So you’ve scheduled a bunch of content submissions to be automatically posted to social communities.  Now what?  Well, any useful content submission tool should come with a method of tracking results and monitoring performance.  You can optimize your efforts because you can see the actual web traffic and backlinks generated from social content sharing.  If you’re a consultant managing social content portfolios for multiple clients, you especially can benefit from using a content submission tool.

Get OnlyWire
A content submission tool like OnlyWire is a great way to automate your posts to multiple websites or social communities.  With over 50 social networks to choose from, you can post your content to unique communities that are not supported by competing solutions.  Here’s how it works‒ Sign up for an account, enter your social media profiles, and authorize OnlyWire to post your content to those sites.  Then all you do is upload your content, choose the sites to post to, and OnlyWire does the rest.  They have plugins to automatically push your WordPress posts and RSS feeds to the sites you set up with OnlyWire.  And if you have some coding experience, they also offer a developer API.  With plans starting at $12.99 per month and a free trial of 100 submissions, you have very little to risk and everything to gain.

What’s your experience with sharing content on social media?  Have you ever tried a content submission tool like OnlyWire?

The Importance of Keywords in Social Bookmarking

The Importance of Keywords in Social Bookmarking

What is your Keyword strategy?
You’ve relaunched your site with new branding and focused content.  You’ve set up profiles on the top social networks.  You’ve spent the last two weeks stockpiling fresh new posts.  You’re ready for launch!  Or are you…  Unless you’ve put careful thought into your keyword strategy, your social media plan is destined to fall short of expectations.

Here are some keyword strategy tips:
1) Use a keyword suggestion tool (Google AdWords) to get a start.
2) Once you’ve compiled a list of top keywords, integrate them into all your forms of communication (site pages, emails, social posts, print collateral).
3) Cycle your keywords in social posts to test their effectiveness.  For example, you might use “gentle math tutor” in all posts one week and the next week use “SAT math tutor”.
4) Change the nuance of your keywords to fit the social network you are using.  For example, on YouTube you might use “gentle math lessons” for your video post.  On LinkedIn you might use “gentle SAT math tutor”.  On WordPress you might use “the gentle math guy”.
5) For each social post, include your keywords in the title, url/filename, description/content and tags.

Keyword management with a Social Bookmarking Tool
The good news is‒ managing your keywords is easy with a social bookmarking tool!  Put your social bookmarking on autopilot with OnlyWire.  Schedule your posts for the week, choose from your favorite tags list, use Advanced Post to auto-fill content for all social networks, and then customize individually with slight changes.  Start using OnlyWire today.  Your first 100 submissions are free!  Sign me up now.

Save $2,100 a Month Using a Content Submission Tool

Save $2,100 a Month Using a Content Submission Tool

What would you do with $2,100 a month?
If you’re manually submitting an average of 5 posts per week to 50 social media sites, you’re throwing away $2,100 a month in lost productivity.  What would you rather do with that money?  You could rent a 1-bedroom co-op in NYC.  Or buy Pippa Middleton’s Gucci bag.  Or 1,050 Grande coffees at Starbucks.  You get the idea.

The time it takes to manually submit content
Let’s say it takes 3-5 minutes to manually submit content to one social media site (open your browser, log in to the social media site, try not to read other posts, insert your content, complete Captcha finalization, re-load to make sure the post submitted properly).  Now let’s say you need to submit that post to 50 social networks.  And let’s assume you are consistently producing an average of 5 original posts per week.

How much is 80 hours of your time worth?
According to leading salary websites (payscale.com, salary.com), the average hourly wage for a marketing assistant in the United States is $25 per hour.  5 min. x 50 networks x 5 posts per week = 1250 minutes = 20.8 hours x $25/hr = $520 per week in manual posting x 4 weeks = $2,080 and if we round up…. $2,100!  You’re wasting $2,100 a month in lost productivity!

OnlyWire users save time
The average OnlyWire user submits 2 posts to 40 social networks per day, or 80 submissions per day.  OnlyWire users get 7 more hours per day to focus on content creation and relationship building.  What could you do with an extra 7 hours per day?

Start now
Using OnlyWire’s content submission tools (Advanced Post, WordPress Plugin, RSS Feed or API), you can automatically post content to 50+ top social networks starting at $12.99 per month.  Start using OnlyWire’s content submission tools now.  Your first 100 submissions are free!  Sign me up now.
