How to Auto-Post your Blog Posts to your Social Media!

Tonight I was wondering how to get the posts from this blog to automatically post on my social media pages. Since a pretty consistent theme for me is not remembering to do anything on Social Media that doesn’t happen on its own¬† these days ūüôā

Since this is a WordPress blog, I looked for WordPress Auto-Posting plugins and came back with a pretty obvious winner: SNAP Auto-Poster.  This thing can log into Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, etc and syndicate your content so it looks like YOU actually posted it. The plugin is free, but you have to pay $49/year to use certain sites (Google+ for one) and get additional flexibility in posting. Since Google+ is really important for search rankings, I think this is worth it.

This thing is really easy to set up! I’ll walk you through it below:

  1. Log into the admin panel of your WordPress blog.
  2. Click “Plugins” on the left-hand side menu -> Click “Add New
  3. Search for “Snap Auto-Poster” and install the plugin when you find it.
  4. Click “Plugins” on the left-hand side menu -> Click “Installed Plugins
  5. Click Activate under Snap Auto-Poster
  6. Click Settings under Snap Auto-Poster
  7. Now you’ll be using the “Add Account” button to add your various accounts
    1. Facebook:¬† there’s a number of steps that involve making a “Facebook App”. This means that your posts will look like your company legitimately posted them, rather than seeming to be syndicated by a re-posting app (this is a good thing). Follow the guide here.
