No recipe today, guys. This is a post for my fellow bloggers out there! In this post, I’ll be discussing how to schedule an Instagram post using Viraltag. To all the foodies: I’ll be back with a recipe for delicious salted caramel chocolate mousse in a few days 😉
What is Viraltag and why should you use it?
Viraltag is a tool to schedule posts to your social media in advance. That way, you can ensure that your content reaches your followers at the best possible time: the time when they are actually active on their social media accounts.
Let’s look at an example. Say you always use Facebook to let your readers know that you’ve published a new blog post, and most of your followers are online in the late evening. In a perfect world, you’d post on Facebook in the late evening, when most of your followers are online. The thing is, you’d much rather be eating/sleeping/watching movies/working out/being generally lazy at that time of day. This leaves you with three options:
- You post at a time that is convenient for YOU. Obviously no one wins here. Yes, you can catch up on some sleep or get a workout done, but your content probably won’t reach a lot of followers, as your post is pushed to the bottom of your followers’ feeds.
- You sit down behind your computer to post right at the moment the majority of your FOLLOWERS are online. Great for your readers, great for your blog. Too bad that you have to drop everything you’re doing to post, even if it is lazing around.
- Whenever it suits you best, you PREPARE a cute Facebook post and tell Viraltag to post it on your wall the moment most of your followers are online. Win, win, win: your followers won’t miss your awesome new post, you get maximum exposure for your blog, AND you get free time to do whatever it is your heart desires!
