You’ve been working hard on that new piece of content. It’s 2500 words of pure evergreen education and thought leadership and now you have to get people to your site in order to read it.
Before emailing your list, submitting it to content aggregators, or reaching out to industry newsletters, you need to share it on your social networks. It’s a small but necessary step in properly promoting your content, generating traffic, and capturing leads for your business.
So, what if you could automatically share it as soon as you clicked that beautiful blue publish button? Luckily there’s a plugin for that!

How to Automatically Share Old Content on Social Media Networks with WordPress
Now that you’re automatically sharing newly published posts, it’s time to start automatically sharing your old posts.
Automating the sharing of old posts is tricky.
Were they time sensitive or evergreen? A mix of both? Maybe you want exclude some content all together?
You can’t just share links either, they need titles, maybe an excerpt, custom messages, and even hashtags. The link may be too long as well, so you’ll want to shorten that to leave room for more text.
And above all else, you don’t want the social networks to block you for spamming the same thing again and again.
In short you need a plugin that will:
- share posts automatically
- choose content to share
- rotate between custom messages
- generate messages from title and excerpt
- generate hashtags
- shorten links
