Description

Being active on social media takes time, wouldn't it be nice to automate some of our social media activities? You can.

In this course I show you how to automatically share content from your site and other authority sites the right way on your social accounts. Instead of annoying your followers, you'll grow your audience and look like an expert in your niche, while you sit back and relax because everything is on autopilot. 

These techniques will help you grow your followers quickly, drive more traffic to your website, and help you establish yourself as an expert in your market.

WordPress is not necessary for every automation method in this course and some methods do not require your own website. 

Also included is a bonus premium WordPress syndication plugin worth $27.

Overview of other 3rd party auto-posting services. The advantages of using several services at once are

  • Posting diversity - content is syndicated through multiple channels
  • Backup - free services sometimes have problems, not relying on only one service provides consistency
