Use Animated Gifs for Your Social Media Marketing

GIFs are trending on social media and it doesn't look like this trend is going to fade away soon. People use animated GIFs to share their feelings, reactions or incredibly cute animals with their followers. However, GIFs are not only for personal use anymore. Marketers and companies have discovered GIFs and use them to strengthen their brands and to make their social media communication more engaging. GIFs can also be used for storytelling, to educate or provide support, to introduce new products or show them in action. As long as product-focused GIFs are entertaining or helpful, people tend to share and like them much more often than other types of advertisements.

With Blog2Social 6.0 you can use any GIF you use in your blog post or upload into your media library in your WordPress blog for your social media posts.
