Increase Your Social Shares Today with Viral Content Bee
Have you tried to increase your social shares lately? There are so many ways out there to accomplish this. I’ve had people ask me this all the time. Of course, many of the ways to do this cost money and others cost a lot of time.
Who has a lot of money or time today? Hence, Viral Content Bee does make it easier for you.
What is Content Viral Bee?
Viral Content Bee is a web-based platform that utilizes a crowd-sourcing model to facilitate the generation of REAL “social buzz” on quality content.
In addition, you can schedule tweets with your Buffer in this model. Love that! 🙂 The other social networks must be shared at the time you share from Viral Content Bee.
You are assigned points via your social networks reach. Each time you share you collect points, when you hit 30 points, you can add your content to be shared by others. Furthermore, it’s easy to do once you get it all set up!In addition, you can schedule tweets with your Buffer in this model. Love that! #viralcontentbee #buffer Click To Tweet
How Does Content Viral Bee Help You with Social Media?
Viral Content Bee allows you to get Facebook Likes, Pinterest Pins, LinkedIn shares and Tweets from established social media accounts that are primarily outside of your normal social media channels.
This keeps the sharing organic and gives your content REAL social signals! Not only does Google love these types of signals, but it also means more eyeballs on your content. This type of organic sharing gives your content its best chance to go viral!
I once asked the question on Twitter of where people loved to share content from:

Free or Pro Version of Viral Content Bee?
Years ago I wanted to test the Pro version of Viral Content Bee to see how it would impact my reach. The Pro version starts at $19.95 per month. (They do offer 2 more plans now as well). I had been using the Pro version for over a month.
The free version I had used for years on and off. Both the FREE and PRO did generate some traffic throughout the years. Naturally, the PRO did generate more!
Either way, one piece of advice if you use either version – do check out the links before you share! I personally don’t like those that use just YouTube videos on it to share but I’ve come across a lot of great content to offset that.Either way, one piece of advice if you use either version - do check out the links before you share! #ViralContentBee Click To Tweet
Pro Viral Content Bee
To my surprise, the Pro version did really increase my reach on various networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. I found more people to connect with and found more readers through it.
Likewise, the nice thing about using the Pro version is that you can cancel at any time and pick it up again at any time. No long term commitments. And, they don’t bother you to come back with constant emails or texts.To my surprise, the Pro version did really increase my reach on various networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. #viralcontentbee #socialmediatools Click To Tweet
Other Tidbits to Remember
A lot of traffic came from Stumble Upon when it was around – which as some old readers here know is not my favorite source of traffic as it tends to have a high bounce rate. (That is from my Google analytics results). Did you know Stumble Upon is now Mix? I am happy that is an easier interface to use and can be used with Viral Content Bee.
Next, one thing I did notice was with Facebook you have to have your personal account set to public shares. Remember, Facebook public shares can be seen by anyone searching your name on Google.
Furthermore, it is something to keep in mind about Facebook. I do use it for the Inspire to Thrive Facebook page though and you can too for your own Facebook page. I’ve noticed more engagement with the more shares lately over on Facebook.
Anyone else noticing the more you post on Facebook the more engagement and shares you get? According to a report in INC recently, (Aug 2018) posting 5 times per day to a Facebook page for some businesses is now optimal.
(Again this changed at the end of 2018 with 1-2 times per day for optimal results on Facebook pages and only a few times weekly in most cases! )
Why Reach Out More On The Social Networks?
Many bloggers lately have left the blogging world. I was sad to see recently that Adrienne Smith has left us. I wish her in the best in her new endeavors. It happens in patches – several bloggers quit. Then you lose readers and social engagers. They take on new jobs or have life-changing events that may take them offline.
Those departures can leave you with fewer readers, comments, and engagements on social media. It is always good to get new readers and followers on the social networks so you are prepared at all times. I’ve met some new bloggers via Viral Content Bee Another benefit to using this platform!
Wonderful folks I’ve met from Viral Content Bee included Dexter from InfoBunny who became a contributor here, Justin of Words by Justin, Michael Dinach of MichaelDinich.net, Manoj of Blogging Triggers, Nicky of BloggingTek to name a few of the folks that are using this platform.Wonderful folks I've met from Viral Content Bee included Dexter from InfoBunny who became a contributor here, Justin of Words by Justin, Manoj of Blogging Triggers, to name a few of the folks that are using this platform.… Click To Tweet
How Does Viral Content Bee Compare To Other Sharing Sites?
I do use a few others that are similar to Viral Content Bee but none are really like since the recent Twitter updates. Now I use the following sites:
Triberr – I must say Triberr is the best but it takes time to get there. You have to spend time using it, knowing how to use it right and use it often. Once you do it can be a great driver of traffic, readers, and engagers.
Buffer App – Buffer is another favorite tool of mine. It’s a great way to share from social media. I have been using the paid version of late. The Chrome extension makes it easier. The mobile version is great too. You can add your favorite RSS feeds – set it and go. With the paid you also get some analytics to see who is sharing your stuff too.
Many of you may remember Co-Promote. It was a similar site that shut down without a word to its users or paid subscribers. So beware of Collaborative Marketing, the same folks with a new name.
I’d love to know about other sharing platforms you may be using today – please drop me a comment on them below.
How to Use Viral Content Bee
Viral Content Bee is fairly easy to use but this video will guide you from start to finish. You must connect your social network accounts and check off your interests to get started. If you use the Buffer it works great with this my favorite tool!
Viral Content Bee assigns points for your social media accounts based on your following and score on each of the social networks. Then, each time you share something you gain points – when you have 30 points you are ready to share your blog posts. 🙂
Bonus Tip: Be sure to have your Pinterest pins ready before you add your blog post link! You will need the pin URL from your website to be shared on this network. Finally, you also need an image for Twitter sharing. Be sure to have the proper size. (1024×512 pixels for Twitter)
