Blogging Tip from the BAR: Use Buffer/Hootsuite

Welcome back to our Blogging Tip this Monday!

Social media sharing

This week’s Tip:

Use Hootsuite or Buffer for your social sharing

So you’ve written the blog post. What next? Sharing, of course. On all your social media channels. Here’s where Hootsuite/Buffer can come in very handy.

  • Pick a post from your blog and copy the URL
  • Open your Buffer/Hootsuite account and add a few  words about the post- Title, Topic (parenting/ travel/ Writing) and paste the URL there; add hash tags.
  • Hootsuite has a manual shortening link. Buffer does it automatically.

*The key advantage I find in Buffer/Hootsuite is that it picks up images from the URL directly.  This is particularly important when you are sharing from Blogger blogs. WordPress attaches the featured image automatically when you share on Facebook and Twitter.

Here are some excellent tips on how to use Hootsuite and how to use Buffer.
