If you are a blogger, writer, marketing agent, brand rep, or influencer, you know the importance of having an active presence on social media. Apps and online tools such as Viraltag make that job a little easier, allowing you to schedule your social media posts in advance with high quality content that your audience will enjoy and relate to.
Having a meaningful presence on social media has gotten alot harder since the explosion of business Facebook pages and sponsored posts and tweets; a huge transition from people using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to post selfies and showcase their personal lives. Now I'd say 50% of social media is about marketing a product, place, or service, and it can be hard to stand out as a small business or lifestyle website like Mommy Scene. We learn new tips all the time about how to build our presence on social media as a family-focused online lifestyle publication. It's very true that most social media platforms now require brands and businesses to pay for any kind of meaningful presence, but there are also ways to build your audience that are free, but require (1) knowing your audience, (2) posting engaging content in a (3) consistent manner.
Viraltag is an online post scheduling tool that allows you to schedule all of your social media posts at one time. This is a huge timesaver because once you fill your queue on Sunday with the following week's posts, Viraltag will automatically post for you all throughout the week, based on the schedule you set. I've primarily used Viraltag for Pinterest, although it also offers scheduling for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram too.
Viral Tag is especially powerful for scheduling Pinterest pins because it offers a diverse range of tools and options.
You can sort your Pinterest boards into lists, and pin to a whole list with one click. This is an especially nice way to optimize your pinning efforts. Easily organize your huge collection of Pinterest boards based on topic; Home, Do It Yourself, Organizing, Food, and Family.
Compose & Schedule - You can write up one post, make it perfect, and then schedule it to be posted on all of your boards. Viraltag is a great social media scheduling tool that allows you to choose an interval between posts. I like to set my posting interval at 24 hours. This way each specific post I schedule will be posted at the time I set on each of my group boards once per day. I can pick a time, write my Pinterest post, and Viraltag will pin my post on a different group board each day. If you want to post a pin on several boards (or an entire board list) in one day, you can change the interval between posts to 0 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 2 hours, etc. All your posts for that specific pin will be scheduled accordingly.
Here's the view where you can see all your scheduled posts for the week, and the Pinterest boards each post has been scheduled for. You can even tweak the description for each individual board.
Viraltag offers lots of tools and analytics for optimizing your social media posts. My favorite is the Engagement report that shows which of my posts receive engagement and which ones don't. This tells me which pins need to be reworked, and which group boards aren't as effective or active as others. It also tells me which group boards bring me the highest return on my pins, in the form of repins and likes.
It's fun to see which pins take off and bring Mommy Scene the most traffic. I've had surprising results, with posts like our Inside Out Coloring Pages and DIY Paper Wall Flowers generating lots of consistent traffic. Mommy Scene's Glittery DIY Tooth Fairy Coins is another popular post on Pinterest. Viraltag allows you to easily schedule your Pinterest posts in one sitting once a week, and then enjoy the automation of regular pins to your group boards based on your pinning schedule. Viraltag allows me to regularly schedule my Best of Mommy Scene pins to be posted on group boards with consistency in a way that consumes the least amount of time.

Overall, Viraltag is a great tool for bloggers and influencers to easily feature creative posts and pin lifestyle features. I'd rather spend my time playing with my kids, doing creative projects, and creating unique content for Mommy Scene, instead of taking up time sharing my projects on social media. Viraltag does the monotonous work for me in a way that's much more effective and consistent thanks to automation and Viraltag's convenient scheduling tools.
