Viraltag Review: Automate Your Social Media Activity with Viraltag

I’m a web designer, so I know how important social media is for promoting a website.

I also try to be as productive as possible and not waste time with activities that don’t bring me an immediate benefit, so you can guess how ‘happy’ I am, when I have to spend time promoting on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and the likes.

This is the reason why I’ve been mostly inactive there, since my time is limited (2 hours/day to do online work, time that I spend for my web design clients and my freelancing course).

And yet social media is important.

So I became interested in a tool that would allow me to pre-schedule my social media posts when I have 30 minutes for this and then not have to worry about it for at least one week.

After looking at few possible options, I stopped at Viraltag.

Reason? Looked simple, clean and affordable.

I joined for a free 14 days test and it took about 30 minutes to really understand how much I missed such a tool until now.

Here is what I love the most:

You can add more accounts

I am not yet that active on other social media outlets, but I love being able to work on them as well, as soon as they become more important to me.

Right now I’m using Pinterest, but I have added my LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook (pages). As soon as I free up some more minutes every week, I’ll work on my LinkedIn account and Twitter.

The scheduler

The reason I’m using it, right?

Very easy to set up and use. I installed their Chrome extension, which allows me to directly schedule from Pinterest, which saves me a TON of time.

Let’s be honest here: I’m not trying to be the best pinner in the world, I just want to get more following and do the least amount of work possible.

I can then schedule the pins for the next days and at the exact times.

Right now I just choose the hours randomly, but there’s a nifty stats tool that allows you to see the times your submissions perform better and choose those exact times in the future, for maximum exposure.

The reports

Clearly a huge advantage: I don’t have to try scour my social media accounts for details or write down my numbers every week, Viraltag keeps track of my posts, how they performed, how many followers I got, how many new likes etc.

After just a week of use, I’ve seen a serious improvement on my Pinterest account, without having to spend a lot of time for it.

What I don’t like:

Right now I have only one thing that I dislike: not having an extension for Firefox. I mainly use it for browsing (I dislike Chrome), so in this case I had to use Chrome with my Viraltag account.

Other than that .. I am impressed with how well it all runs and confident that I’ll soon discover more of is great features and make the most of it.

  1. I’ve never heard of ViralTag, but then again I didn’t actually look for a solution to automate my social medial activity. I do use it, but I can’t say I spend a lot of time promoting myself on it, it takes me a few seconds to write a short post or share something relevant. How many social media websites do you post on? I only use facebook, Twitter and (rarely) Pinterest. And LinkedIn.

  2. I’ve recently started using Viraltag myself, have a few days left trying it for free. I was looking for reviews and it looks like it’s a good tool, worth the money. Of course, I’ll opt for the individual plan since I’m only just starting out with freelancing.

  3. Well I can certainly see how this would help, and having those reports would be nice too. I know that all of the data and the numbers can be a little intimidating at first glance, but if you have a program that can collect them and organize them for you, then you are certainly avoiding a pretty big headache. Overall I think it reminds of all that I am not doing, but I would rather know that than not. For that, I say thank you for sharing.

  4. That’s a really great review of the tool. I’ve only ever used the free version of Buffer myself, and just reading your post, I realize just how much I need something like viraltag. I used to think it was a waste of money to by such social media post automation tools, but this one could make my life so much easier. I think it’s worth a try.
