At the beginning of my blogging adventures, I rarely blogged consecutively and just posted blogs up whenever I felt inspired. Nowadays, I post a blog more or less every day (with the occasional few days break here and there). This has become such a great passion of mine but I soon started struggling when daily life got in the way of me writing and scheduling blogs.
I've been using an app called Buffer for quite a while now, but I decided to try a new app called Social Champ, a scheduling system that allows you to pre-set blog posts to go up whenever you need them to. Buffer does the same but Social Champ is one I actually pay for. The service costs $10 per month which when converted to GBP is around £7.50! This is perfect because it allows me to schedule up to 1,000 posts in advance (which is definitely more than I need), rather than the limited 10 posts you'd get normally. I had a trial test which meant I could take full advantage of the service and this ultimately swayed me into paying for it.
I think at the stage I am now, with a full-time job, I need to utilise my time carefully. This means that by scheduling a week's worth of blog posts in advance, it'll save me a lot of time, effort and potentially missing blog posts.
For those who blog or are in charge of multiple social media accounts, here's a break down of what you get for your $10/£7.50 a month. You can also find all the pricing options by clicking here.
- 25 Social Media Profiles
- 1000 Pending Posts PER Profile
- Analytics for your posts
- Chrome Extension
- Link to Image Extraction
- Bulk Uploading
- Link Shortening and Tracking
- Export Analytics
- Setup Custom Schedule
I've definitely benefited from using two of my social media outlets so far, being Facebook and Twitter. I've also found that I've done a few bulk uploads recently, meaning I've scheduled the same post every day at the same time. You can do this in groups of ten and it's been great when I've been promoting my family member's GoFundMe page.
The whole process is pretty simple and is very informative on starting up/FAQs. I would certainly recommend this to those who blog daily and for those who run social media accounts for various companies. If you're interested in this service you can use my coupon code 'UPYOURVLOG2016' to get 30% off the monthly cost or 40% if you opt for yearly.
