What are the cool tools you can use to automate and outsource your WordPress blog? With all the resources available to bloggers today, let’s discuss some handy tools, so you can optimize the time you spend blogging and building the strategic partnerships and relationships that draw more traffic to your site.

Schedule Posts



The first thing you can do to help you with automating your content online is to schedule posts in advance. Batching is one of the best ways of freeing up your time for content. That way you create 2-3 posts at once, and then schedule those posts out over a few weeks.


To schedule posts you go to the Publish section in the upper right hand corner. You will see a schedule date option, where you can choose the year, month, and day along with the hour and minute you want to have the post go live.

Automate Outsourcer’s Posts

What if you could automatically place your outsourcers content in WordPress? With the new freelancer site, Content Runner , you can easily have outsourcers write content for you. Then with their new WordPress plugin, the content is automatically placed as a draft in WordPress.


All you need to do is import the article into WordPress, even all the formatting remains the same. Furthermore, the plugin can be easily white labeled, which is great for agencies using the plugin for their clients.

This is a fantastic solution for companies who rely upon outsourcers for their content.

Jing Project

You can capture quick images and videos through the Jing Project. With this tool you can take 5 minute screen capture videos on different topics.
Jing has both free and paid options to help users with a varying array of needs. If you need to create visual content for your blog definitely give it a try.
To get started, you just need to download the software. Then simply start taking images with the Jing ball at the top of your computer screen. The system is very intuitive to use.



Easel.ly


Over the past few years infographics have been one of the hottest and quickest growing segments of content on the internet. These detailed visuals are useful, factual, and most importantly shareable! Unfortunately they seem hard to create and out of reach for most entrepreneurs without either design skills or a large budget for a designer.

However, this does not have to be the case. Easel.ly provides the templates and software that enables any blogger to create infographics for their site. After you are finished, you can use the site’s HTML and embed codes to share this on your WordPress blog or share it directly to social networks.

Hootsuite


Not exactly for outsourcing, but with the great team features Hootsuite offers, you can have VA’s share your content on different social media accounts to spread your post quickly to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google Plus. Once you have the content published, you need to share it throughout social media. Using HootSuite is a great way to share that content without hassle.
