I recently decided to give Viraltag a go after reading a post from Victoria of She’s Candid. I’ve been meaning to set up a service to schedule Pinterest for a while now but kept getting lazy about it. I finally signed up for a free trial of Viraltag and got to work setting it up. I decided that it’s definitely worth the price so let me break it down for you.
What Is Viraltag
Viraltag is an image focused a social media scheduling tool that allows you to share images from your blog/brand and all over the internet on your social media channels. Viraltag supports Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram (kind of), LinkedIn, and Tumblr.
I say kind of for Instagram because it’s not seamless. Like most scheduling tools, Viraltag will set up your Instagram for you and give you a notification when it’s time to post. I don’t use Viraltag for Instagram because I already do something similar for that. I set up a post in my Instagram drafts and set an alarm to post it but if you like having everything in one place this would be great for you.
I downloaded the Chrome extension for Viraltag so it adds buttons to all the images and videos that I see kind of like those pin it Pinterest buttons. The button allows me to quickly share images that link back to videos or blog posts.
You can also bulk upload on Viraltag which is amazing if you have a ton of images that you want to upload. When using the bulk upload you can choose to set different captions and times for each image.
I use Viraltag for Twitter and Pinterest. I’ve been scheduling out evergreen content for the rest of the year so that I can always keep new eyes on my older content. I like that I can set it up and forget about it.
I know that theres a feature to edit your images in Viraltag but I haven’t used it as I edit my photos in Lightroom.
The first thing you see when you log into Viraltag is your dashboard. This is where you check posts that you’ve scheduled and schedule new posts. It’s a great overview that I find really easy to navigate and understand. I had no learning curve at all. I was able to log in and immediately get to business.
I haven’t run into any problems using Viraltag yet. It’s a very basic scheduling tool which is all I was looking for. I like that it’s pretty inexpensive and that they have a cheaper blogger plan or their regular individual plan. You also get emails and support as well. They have webinars and all that if that’s your thing. Check it out here.
I say give it a try and see if you like it. They have a free trial after all.
