In any given online campaign, automation is very important, especially automation on social media. Companies and individuals having their businesses, be it a simple revenue earning blog, or a large web hosting or product selling corporation, need social media interaction. It is estimated that around 75% of the consumers use social media to learn about products or services. Which is why most businesses have social media pages. Now, whenever these businesses update content on their blogs or websites, they also need to notify their social media followers about the latest updates. To do this, you would ordinarily have to share links to your new content on a social network, say Facebook. This is where automation comes in.
Wouldn’t it be great if all your updates are published on Facebook automatically? Automation can make life a lot easier. Not only will it ensure that none of your updates are left out, it will also save you time and effort. Additionally, it will keep the traffic flowing to your blog. How to automate your posts?
