This post will be especially useful for fellow bloggers who read this blog. The blogging world is a large and ever evolving landscape of social media management in addition to writing and marketing your work. It is hard to keep up with all one needs to do in an effort to be successful. Not only do you have to write good content, which let’s face it, is the foundation of your online presence , you also have to make sure that your work actually gets seen by the right audience. One of the ways to accomplish that is through social media management.
Dlvr.it is an awesome tool for this. I have been using the free plan for a while now as part of my strategy. I love it because it keeps my evergreen content evergreen. The free plan allows you to set up 3 social media platforms and have your blog posts posted across them as you wish. Basically, once you’ve set up your account, you can add your desired blog posts to your queue. Once it’s been posted, it goes right back into the queue, which is fantastic. For information that is “evergreen”, such as travel guides etc. (obviously wouldn’t work for things such as timely news), it offers a way for your content to get seen forever if you desire.
When you consider statistics like the average lifespan of a tweet being just minutes, you understand how beneficial it is to have tweets and posts automated. This means you can reach a wider audience by recycling the posts. You literally set it and forget it! It’s like having a virtual assistant for free. There are of course higher tier plans for dlvr.it.
The free dlvr.it plan gives you:
- 3 social media platforms
- 10 posts per social platform
- 15 items in your queue
As my audience grows, I will consider moving up to a paid plan which gives your 50 items in the queue for $9.99 month plus a couple of other things. If you are a new blogger with little money to spare, I think dlvr.it is a very good platform to use, along with other other blogging tools l have written about previously. If you are thinking of starting a blog, be sure to read my easy to follow post.
