Today I want to share with you how to schedule tweets for Twitter and posts for Facebook automatically. Automatic scheduling has allowed me to spend less time on Facebook and Twitter, while still allowing me to promote my content.
This means I get to spend more time focusing on my business and blog, which is a huge plus for me, and I'm sure it will be for you too.
I can do this thanks to a plugin called Revive Old Post, formerly known as Tweet Old Post.
One of the biggest mistakes bloggers make in terms of their content, is not sharing it enough.
Typically, you create a new post, share it a few times, and move on to the next one. These posts eventually end up in your archives, never to be seen again.
Yes, there's a chance that people will stumble across this content organically, but why not make sure it's seen long after it's been posted, by continuing to promote your old blog posts?
Revive Old Post allows you to do that without any work on your part (except for the initial set up of the plugin).
Revive Old Post allows you to automatically share all of the posts on your blog to Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Xing, and Tumblr during your desired time interval.
This plugin does include a pro version, however, you can get along just fine with the free version. Here are some of the features available with the free version of Revive Old Post:
- Choose which accounts you want to share to (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Xing, and Tumblr)
- Choose the minimum time interval between shares (for example, you could choose to share content every 3 hours)
- Choose the minimum post age for sharing
- Choose the maximum post age for sharing
- Choose how many posts to share each time
- Enable Google Analytics Tracking
- Exclude specific posts and post categories
To install the plugin, in your wp-admin, go to Plugins > Add New and search for, install, and activate the Revive Old Post (Former Tweet Old Post) plugin.
Once you've installed the plugin, in your wp-admin navigate to the Revive Old Post tab. The plugin is easy to use, and will walk you through the set up options.
