Top 5 Social Media Automation Plugins

Your alarm starts buzzing, and you get pissed off the moment you open your eyes, you get up, finish your bathroom routine, brew a coffee and you:

  1. start scrolling through your social media
  2. answer your texts and then start scrolling through social media

If your daily schedule starts in this manner, you are a part of the 95% squad who got hooked on this virtual cocaine that we don’t plan to get off from, at least not in the near future. Social media got embedded in our lives to the point that you can’t imagine spending a single day without scrolling your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn feeds (just to name a few).

For the average user, it serves as a beautiful way to pass your time, catch up with friends, watch the news, pretend to listen to a boring conversation while you’re posting stories… the options are endless. But one attribute brings so much value to the table that it would be a sin not to take advantage of it – checking out on your favorite blogger! Bonding with your users, gaining significant traffic, running campaigns, improving your domain authority, raising awareness about your brand…

But I have to admit that it can be a pain in the rear sometimes. Jumping through a dozen tabs to get to the desired social media website, hunting for appropriate hashtags, and when you do it daily for multiple platforms, it can really get to that watching paint dry excitement levels. However, in this automated section of humanity, of course, there is a hack to bypass the annoying procedure and deliver the posting tasks as quickly and as painless as possible, with a sprinkle of useful features to make that process extra spicy. Let’s get through the five best social media automation plugins:
