If you’re trying to juggle multiple social networks I am sure you already know how tedious this can be. Still, using several networks at once has become essential since this is the only way to get the word out efficiently. Some are using this combination for their personal reasons, but in most occasions this is used to create a community around small and large businesses. You might’ve even heard that there are people who do this professionally, which can tell you how complex this can be. But not every small business can afford a person who takes care of social networks.
If you take a look at the iOS App Store you’ll find numerous applications which are promising to unite numerous networks into one interface, helping you stay on top of your posts and other outgoing information. Still, many of these apps are only somewhat successful since it’s very complex to create an app that can successfully combine different APIs and support features that are unique to a particular network. On the other hand, there are some apps which managed to do this properly, and in this article we’ll tell you more about such solution.
Postcard is a newly released iOS app, designed to standardize the way you use social media. This is not just one of those apps that let you post statuses on more than one network, but you can also create a host and spread information right from that particular website. Continue reading to learn more about this system.
The first time you open Postcard you’ll be greeted with a helpful tutorial which will explain some main features and how you can use them. The first thing you’ll want to do is to add a host, which can be a WordPress blog. You can download WordPress plug-in from Postcard’s official website, so you can successfully establish this connection. Installation is very simple and intuitive, so even if you don’t have any WordPress knowledge I am sure you’ll be able to deal with this. Once you’ve created the host, you can add accounts from social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and many more. Postcard is free to download and use, but you’ll be restricted to 3 accounts. If you like to expand this option you can purchase additional packs priced at $1, $3, and $5.
The biggest selling point of Postcard is its ease of use. Once you decide to publish something, you can write text, add links, and even add pictures. You can also add tags and hashtags, and completely prepare everything for posting. Now simply choose all the accounts you’d like to post from, and send it. The whole text you’re written isn’t going to be posted to Facebook or Twitter in its full form, but it will be linked to your host. This means that this app is perfect for those who care about the leads to their website, and I am sure that many people are struggling with this.
Postcard is a smart solution for creating and maintaining community around your website. It will certainly save you a lot of time and effort.
