How It Works
If you want to really automate your marketing campaigns, you can add an RSS feed to an Identity, and any new content will get auto-posted to whichever Channels you want.
If you want, you can "curate" a Feed, meaning you will review and edit/comment on each post before it gets published.
We really let you fine-tune how you want the Feed to be handled. You can control how often it's queried, how many items to post at once, the time interval between posts. You can go into even more detail by switching to advanced scheduling, where you can select the time zone and up to six time slots a day, each day of the week, when your posts will be published.
You can even write custom posts and attach your own photos to them. DoSocial will send them out to your selected Channels.
If you want to schedule a post to be published at a specific date, time, and time zone, we give you that capability. There's likely an optimal time that your posts can reach the highest number of followers possible.
It takes a lot of work to keep on top of all your social media accounts. You have to search the web, finding niche-specific content to post in order to keep your followers engaged. You can't be too self-promotional or you'll lose fans. So you need to be constantly looking for captivating content to keep your community interested in your brand. Talk about a full-time job!
We knew there had to be an easier way...
So, we developed the Trending Content tool. It allows you to choose the hottest content specific to your business, and have it posted to your social channels. Our resident "Content Experts" spend hours every day, scouring the internet for the most popular content, and enter it into the Trending Content system so it's available for you to share with your followers.
Here's how you set it up:
Choose your Categories and Tags
These are the topics that you're interested in and want to share with your followers.
Select your Channels
These represent your social media accounts, like your Facebook Page or Twitter account.
Either we can email you with recommended Trending Content, and then you just select which items to publish, or you can give us permission to publish the content on your behalf.
Choose your schedule
Select your time zone, then choose up to six different times each day of the week that you want the Trending Content to be published. That's a lot of scheduling flexibility.
And then once your setup is complete, you will either:
- Receive an email with your trending content suggestions, that you can either approve or decline.
- Have your trending content automatically posted to your social channels.
And hopefully, you'll start to see increased engagement of your social media posts, like this Facebook post:
And this Tweet:
Sharesly is a tool used to share either your own content, or anyone else's (like an industry expert), with a beautiful Call-To-Action popover button that helps drive traffic to your blog posts, sales pages, squeeze pages...wherever you want. The shortened links can then be shared on social media sites, through email, instant messaging, text messages, etc.
We use our own URL shortener (http://shares.ly) to create the shortened links. This allows us to track analytics, such as opens, button clicks, as well as data about the visitors such as their country or whether they were using a desktop or mobile device.
This is how you set it up:
And this is how it looks (live example):

Rather than something obscure like:

Wouldn't you rather have:
Don't you think you'd get more clicks? :)
Sharesly Social Buttons
You can add a floating social media button bar to your Sharesly Pages. This makes it super easy for viewers to promote them to their social channels and can really help your Sharesly content go viral... which will result in more traffic to your site.
Sharesly Tracking Tags (new!)
This is powerful when combined with Sharesly, because when your Sharesly page goes viral, you can easily track its visitors, and use this information to know how effective your marketing campaign was, as well as use this information for future campaigns.
Here's the services we allow you to add tracking tags for:
- Google AdWords Remarketing
- Google Tag Manager
- Google Analytics
- Facebook Custom Audiences
- Twitter Remarketing
We love talking to our members. That's how we keep our finger on the pulse of what you want, what would make your life easier...and we can continue to make DoSocial better and better.
