If you have followed my blog for awhile now, you may remember a post I wrote back in October 2016 about Viraltag. Well, now that I have been using their amazing service to schedule my social media, I wanted to provide you with a six month update. Feel free to read the original post here.
I’m a huge advocate of marketing on social media; it’s one of the best ways to connect with your readers and reach a wider audience, however I am the first to admit that it can be incredibly time consuming. Luckily, I came across Viraltag last year and was instantly intrigued by the ability to quickly schedule all my social media posts within one easy to use platform, so I had to give it a try. This post may contain affiliate links; however I only promote products I love, from companies I trust.
With Viraltag, you can schedule your posts on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Linkedin. With their bulk upload feature, you can upload one photo at a time or multiple, and easily edit it for the specifics of each platform such as the size of the photo and the caption. For example, you can revise the text caption to include hashtags for your Instagram posts, and not include them for your Facebook posts, crop the photo into a square for Instagram and leave it long and vertical for Pinterest. This alone is a huge time saver!
I have been using Viraltag for the past 6 months mainly for Pinterest. I am part of several group boards, so scheduling my pins to all of my group boards is a breeze. I can schedule an entire month’s worth of pins in under an hour! It’s been a huge time-saver and my Pinterest account has seen a rapid growth since I started using Viraltag six months ago! Just by utilizing this service, I have gained tons of new followers and my engagement has continually increased! Yay!
In an effort to be totally transparent with you, I am happy to show you my actual statistics from Viraltag from the past six months (notice the date in the upper right hand corner of these photos). I started using Viraltag around the middle of October 2016, so I wanted to show you that my engagement and growth was nearly non-existent before that (the charts below show the sad month of September 2016, before I started using Viraltag.)

Check out the consistent growth of new followers over the past six months! Isn’t that wonderful? While new followers are great, I have to admit that I am more concerned with actual interaction, so I am so happy to see my pins being saved, repined, and liked. Most of all, since I am able to schedule all of these pins in advance, I have seen a huge increase of visitors to my blog coming from Pinterest. Amazing!
If you’re looking for an easy to use platform to schedule your social media, I highly recommend checking out Viraltag. They offer a 14 day free trail that’s totally free – no credit card required! PLUS, if you use this link you will receive a $15 Viraltag credit. How awesome is that? Oh, and if you’re a blogger make sure to check out their special blogger pricing that’s just $9 per month for unlimited posts.
I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting such an increase in such a short amount of time, but I am really pleased with how Viraltag has helped me tremendously increase my reach on Pinterest in just six months. If you’re using Viraltag to schedule any of your social media posts, tell me about it in the comments below. I would love to hear about your experience. Oh, and feel free to follow me on Pinterest.
