What Is Viral Tag?
Viraltag is a social media management tool. I feel that any blogger or website manager should use a social media tool to provide consistent content to their readers. I’ve tried a few different options and Viraltag is at the top of my list for the ease of use, low pricing and compatibility with ALL of my social media channels. Many other options do not include Pinterest and that is where a lot of my traffic comes from so it is imperative for me to be able to schedule pins.
Why Do You Need It?
If you are anything like me, trying to keep up with your blog or website social media accounts can be difficult. I personally love using Pinterest and Twitter to keep up with my followers but I am often on a different schedule. With Viraltag, I am able to schedule my social media posts out at the times that are convenient to my readers. Most of the time, my scheduling happens at 3AM. I don’t think many of you are up browsing Pinterest at that time!
Setting up my account was really quite easy. I was able to connect my Facebook pages for my blog, my Twitter account, Instagram and Pinterest. There were also options to connect a Tumbler account but I opted out of that one as I do not really understand what Tumbler even is.
Scheduling content is a breeze. I was able to set up RSS feeds of my favorite blogs and websites to be able to add content from them without having to open another page. I was also able to add Pinterest feeds from my favorites to allow scheduling of pins directly from the Viraltag interface.
You can also add an extension to Chrome to add content directly from the web.
After picking the content to schedule, I was able to add my personal touch as far as captioning goes. I was even able to pick multiple Pinterest boards to pin the same content too.
After adding the personal touch, I was faced with the choice to add the content to my queue for posting or into my drafts. If I pick my queue, the content gets sent out according to my scheduling preferences. This is a neat feature but I prefer sending the content to drafts first.
When you send the content into “drafts”, you can customize the posting schedule further. I really like the fact that not everything gets posted at the same time. Other scheduling services I’ve tried will post content to multiple social media accounts at the same time unless I manually upload the content for different times. With Viraltag, you just have a click a few buttons and BAM it’s customized to your taste.
You can sign up for a free 14 day trial of Viraltag to test it out for yourself. If you like it and want to continue with the service, it is only $9 a month. Write a review of the service on your website and enjoy a free 6 month membership!
