If you have a website, or even just own a business, you know how important it is to promote it using social media. But how do you manage all your different social media accounts? There are many different social media management websites – probably the most popular ones is Hootsuite, which I’ve used in the past. One of the limitations of Hootsuite though, is that you can only have a limited number of streams on a free account. I did recently discover a new social media management website called MavSocial, and I’ll discuss it in this post.
What is MavSocial?
MavSocial is a social media management website – you can connect your social networking accounts to it, including different Facebook pages you have for different websites, Facebook groups you’re an admin for, and your Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube accounts if you use those websites. The only social media site that can’t be added at this time is Google Plus. In addition, if you have a website (or multiple websites) you can load the RSS feeds for those sites into MavSocial, so you can easily share posts on your different social networking accounts without having to have multiple tabs open. In addition, you can search for stock images and add them to your cart, and buy the directly through the MavSocial website.
How do I add my websites to MavSocial?
First, make sure you have an RSS feed published for your website – then, click on “RSS Content Manager” on the left side of the screen. Enter the feed URL, feed name, and choose a category, then click “Add.”
How do I make a post on MavSocial?
Making posts using MavSocial is easy – if you want to make a one-time post, click on “Posts” on the left-hand side of the screen, type your post, and add a link in the “Link” box if necessary. If you’re posting something from your blog or website, you can go to the RSS Content Manager and find the appropriate post, click on the box in the lower right corner of the post, and choose Post Manager – this will automatically add a link to the post manager, then all you have to do is type the rest of the post.
How can I keep track of which posts I’ve posted for different sites?
If you have multiple websites, you’ll want to make sure you keep track of what posts you’re posting for each site – you can do this by creating campaigns for each website. Just go to the Campaign Planner, click on “Create Campaign,” enter a title and a description, and a start date and end date for the campaign – or if you want it to run indefinitely, click the “Perpetual” radio button. If you want to post the same post at different times during the day, you can purchase the MavRepeater add-on feature, otherwise you can use the “Schedule” feature under Post Manager to schedule the post at different times yourself. Then when you post an update for one of your sites, make sure you click the drop-down box and choose the correct campaign for the update – otherwise it will be added to the “Miscellaneous – Quick Posts” campaign by default.
How do I sign up for MavSocial?
Just go to mavsocial.com and click the sign up button.
I’ve been loving MavSocial so far – if you’ve used it I would love to hear your comments – please feel free to comment below.
