Using social media can be time consuming – you pop on to share a post and get sucked in to spending time surfing, chatting, or browsing so it’s always good to know that you can share your content easily within one of your networks without having to put in time.
For sharing to Twitter we have already said about setting up your facebook page to update to twitter automatically which is a good move, but how about sharing content? With Rainy Day Mum I use DLVR.it – this is straight to Twitter and it’s working as a way to share my content, I’m seeing DLVR.it as one of the top 10 referrers in my stats each month.
How to Set up DLVR.it
In DLVR.it register with an email and password
It will ask for your blog URL or Feed – at Blogging with kids we use Feedburner for our RSS feed so I added that into the URL.
Then you are good to go.
A note about scheduling to Facebook
We advice against this – everything that we have read and seen from our own facebook pages is that scheduled posts via a system such as DLVR.it, Hootsuite etc… has a smaller reach than when you post yourself. Take these 2 posts from my Rainy Day Mum Facebook Page – they were posted within 30 minutes of each other and the reach for my test DVLR.it post is 200 people less than the post that I wrote myself.
