In today’s internet, the channels by which you can connect to your customers are very diverse and one of the largest social media platform in the world with more than a billion users, is Facebook. A good promotion for your business would be to share your posts on this platform. You can do this manually or automatically (about what we will talk today in this article.).
Sharing manually is nice because you can add a personal touch to each post, as opposed to sending out the same thing to all of your social networks. However, it’s also a time-consuming process. Some days, you just may not have the time to share your new content manually. This is why many bloggers opt for automatic sharing, which is not only easier, but more convenient.
There are many ways that you can automatically share your content on the Web, and we’ll analyze three of those methods in today’s article.
IFTTT is most preferred method for automatically sharing blog posts. It is a great tool for connecting many services together. IFTTT stands for “If this then that”. It’s very easy to use and consumer focused. IFTTT lists 131 different connections you can create between WordPress and Facebook. One advantage with this method is that it does not require any additional plugins, so that’s one less plugin to remember to update
Not only can you automatically post your WordPress blog to your Facebook page, you can reverse it and post Facebook updates to your website. It is definitely worth taking a look at this method.
Nextscripts is great, it will automatically publish to all of your social media accounts. You can also use it to repost previously published content at certain intervals, thus covering periods of inactivity. Other than Facebook it supports 18 social networks.
The plugin makes 100% white labeled posts, meaning the posts will look as if you posted them directly – no “shared via NextScripts.com or posted by SNAP for WordPress. Another awesome feature is that you can create a custom social media message, such as a tweet for each post you publish on your blog.
Moreover it’s FREE !
Zapier is a tool that allows you to connect apps you use every day to automate tasks and save time. In fact, is very similar to IFTTT, but is more focused on the business end than IFTTT. The principle is the same however: set up a trigger and an action. You can connect any of our 800+ integrated apps together to make your own automations. What’s more it’s quick and easy to set up – you don’t need to be a developer, anyone can make a Zap.
Currently on the free plan you can have 5 Zaps and they sync every 15 minutes. This is certainly more than enough to sync your WordPress to Facebook.
