Fully Automated Social Media Content with Promo Republic

Fully Automated Social Media Content

Stop me if you’ve said this before:

“I don’t have the time”

“I don’t know what to post”

Those are the two most common responses I get when I ask a potential social media client about their current social media business habits.

In the past, I’ve preached to many of my clients to use social scheduling tools like Hootsuite or Buffer, or even just the built in scheduling tool from Facebook. These are indeed great options.

Basically what should be doing is dedicating some time each week to plan out a content schedule and create several posts to go out through the week, so you don’t have to post it one by one.

However, that still doesn’t solve the “what do I post” dilemma.

I’d like to think that if most people didn’t have a creative block, they would find the time to schedule out these posts.

So, the real ‘time’ issue, is actually the time it takes to think of content to post.

Enter Promo Republic

Amongst other great features, Promo Republic will suggest content to you based on topics that are most relevant to your business.

There are 20 different types of posts Promo Republic can suggest for you. Think of it like the Netflix for social media management. You can also search by keyword and it will pull from the 20 different content buckets.

Depending on which plan you choose, you can connect your Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, and also Snapchat.

Promo Republic’s starter plan will give you the first four social networks, which are the most common anyway and with the highest active users.

Once you find a certain post you like, you can click on it to optionally customize it.

Promo Republic has a built in photo-editor that will allow you to edit the suggested text, colors used, background images and more – if you want to. It’s completely optional.

Some of the post types will already have a suggested caption included, others will not and you can place one yourself. You can use the text from the image itself to use as the caption if you really don’t want to do much work!Once you get it the way you want, which is just a few clicks, you can schedule it to post on any of the networks you have connected. You can also immediately publish it if you’re ready for it to go out.

Promo Republic currently does not have Instagram direct publishing, but I’m told they are working on that.

Instead, you can download their iOS or Android app, will push a notification to your phone when the post is scheduled. From there, you it will copy the image and caption to the clipboard and you just have to open instagram to post it.

Additionally, you have a great content calendar included. Promo Republic will suggest time slots for you based on your industry category and the social network itself. You can quickly see upcoming posts for each network through the week. If you see that there are some suggested time slots with no posts scheduled, you can quickly add a post and it will search through the suggested buckets.

Analytics are included too. Tab over to the statistics tab and get a bird’s eye view of each networks performance. You can see the engagement for each post and each network.

If you notice that a particular post did really well, you can click on repost, and schedule it for another time.

If you want to eliminate the time and lack of creativity excuse, Promo Republic is a perfect fit for you.
