Interesting Social Media Stats

You can share your WordPress content to social media in two ways-

  • Manually
  • Automatically

However, there are downsides of sharing posts manually.

Downsides of Sharing Posts Manually

If you are posting only in 1 or 2 or even 3 social media platforms, then you can post manually. But if you want to get more visibility and use as many social media platforms as possible, then going manually will not do the job. Because –

  • It takes a lot of time as you have to post one at a time
  • You may forget to post on one of the social platforms by mistake
  • You can also forget to share the post after making it live
  • To do it manually, you may need to hire a social media expert which will increase your budget
  • Posting manually will harm your productivity and efficiency

Imagine you are publishing 10-20 or even 100 posts a day. Is it possible to share them one by one to every social media platform?

Hell no!
