How to automatically re-share evergreen content with Blog2Social
Click on “Re-Share Your Posts” in the Blog2Social menu on the right side to open your “Re-Share” Settings.
Step 1- Define how many posts you want to add to your sharing queue
Select from the upper left drop-down menu how many posts should be added to your queue. You can choose to add 5-100 posts. Depending on your Blog2Social license, your re-sharing queue can be filled with 25 (Smart), 50 (Pro) or 100 (Business) posts in total. If you try to add more posts than your quota allows, Blog2Social will fit as many posts as possible from your selection. This also applies if there are already posts in your queue. You can see your queue below the settings.
Step 2- Define which posts should be shared
You can now select which type of content you would like to add to your re-sharing queue.
You can either select to share your oldest posts first or you can customize your selection by choosing to add content by:
- Post Types
- Content with images or without images
You can combine multiple options to exactly define the posts you want.
For example, if you want to re-post only selected posts (marked as favorite post) and only the most recent posts from a specific category and from a specific author, you can combine your settings as follows:
1. Post Types [Post]
2. Date [01.12.2019] - [01.03.2020]
3. Categories [Social Media]
4. Authors [Britta]
5. Only include favorite posts
6. Only include content with images or without images
With these settings, only 5 of your favorite posts, created between 01.12.2019 and 01.03.2020 in the category Social Media, published by a specific author will be added to your queue.
Step 3 - Define when your content should be shared
Select from the upper right menu the intervals for re-sharing your content.
You can choose to post every X days at a certain time and select on which days your posts should be posted. For example: Post every  days at [12:15] on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
You can select to post on every X specified weekday at a certain time. For example: Post every rd [Saturday] at [12:15]
Instead of adding a time, you can also use the best times for both planning options.
Step 4 - Select on which social media channels your content should be re-posted
Select the network collection with the social media accounts you want to re-share your posts to.
If you have more than one Twitter account in this network collection, please select a primary Twitter account.
Step 5 - Add your content to your sharing queue
If you are happy with your selection and time settings, click on “Add to queue”. The selected configuration of your settings can be saved permanently. (optional)
Step 6 - Organize your sharing queue
Your sharing queue shows all the posts you have added to be re-shared automatically. For every post, you can see how many social media posts are scheduled and when the next post will be shared.
Click on “Details” next to your post to see on which social media accounts your post will be shared and when.
You can also delete content from your sharing queue if you don’t feel like sharing it any longer or if content was accidentally added to your queue.
To do this, click on the small checkbox to select a post. Then click on “delete selected posts” at the top. To delete all your queued posts, click on “select all” and then click on “delete selected posts”.
Congratulations, you are done! All the posts in your sharing queue will be re-shared automatically to keep your social media feeds interesting for your followers.
How to change the date and time for individual posts
You can change the time and date of your queued posts by using the social media calendar. To do this, click on “Calendar” in the Blog2Social menu. Posts from your sharing queue will be labeled with “(Re-Share)” so you can distinguish them from regular posts.
To change the date, just drag the post to a different day with your mouse. You can also change the time or edit your post by clicking on it. You will be able to see the changed time in your sharing queue as well.
See here for a detailed guide to the social media calendar.
