To Good to be True – PUBLER

“To good to be true” was proven wrong by Publer. I used to dread posting to social media because there were 5+ accounts and they all needed updating while maintaining consistent messaging. Publer took care of this issue for me, and I now look forward to it creating and scheduling social media posts. Not only can I do it in a fraction of the time, but I can also create and schedule posts as the inspirations hit me. Publer allows me to get ahead of the posting game instead of always playing catch up.

As head of marketing in a fast growing business, I just did not have time anymore to stay on top of each social media account. Besides, I am a bit biased on which social media accounts I like to work with, so at the end of the day I was doing what I wanted not what I should. Now with Publer’s interface, I can access all accounts, customize them to each account’s parameters, and then schedule them to exactly when I want them to be published. You can do this to all your accounts at once or individually, either way it is easier than posting from the actual social media’s account page. To top it all off, Publer’s latest browser extension allows me to create a post the moment an inspiration hits. Like right now when I want to create a post about what it is like to post about this blog on Publer. That’s right, you can create a post while creating a post, that gives a teaser of the actual post.

Another aspect that is too good be true is that Publer takes user’s feedback seriously. Every interaction I’ve had with Publer has had a human response and not just artificial intelligence. Not only do they let me in on how they are going use my ideas they show me the road map of when to expect it.

You know what else is too good to be true? Its FREE! Yep. You can sign up and start using it at no cost.

Last but not least, since using Publer I have discovered that there were more hiccups to separately posting to all our social media accounts than I realized. The whole reason this software is too good to be true is because they have features that are beyond what I had asked for and it is easier to use than I could have imagined.

Linking your Social media accounts to Publer is easy with only a few clicks. Posting is even easier with less clicks. Seeing your posts a few days later or even weeks later is fun because you can schedule it and move on to the next thing. This is not just about updating your social media accounts, its about being more efficient in the workplace, allowing you to get more done in less time, all while staying ahead of the game.

Do yourself a favor by checking it out for yourself and not just taking my word for it.

What if you did not read this?

How do you decide whether an opportunity is worth your time, energy, and possibly investing your life to it?

When I had the opportunity to travel to North Korea, I knew that not accepting would forever beg the question “what if?”. When I dated my beautiful wife, and the question “What if she wasn’t in my life?” caused me to panic, I knew I wanted to marry her. No need to explain further when I had the opportunity to run Coppes Napanee, the oldest continuously operating woodworking company in America.

And now for the big question. What if you would not have taken the time to read this small little blog post? You would have had two minutes of your life to do something else. You would never have discovered that this post was first of all a test to see what a blog would look like on our soon to be revamped website. You would not have known that it really is possible to go to North Korea and live out the gospel. Now you know that I actually do think a little bit before I do or not do something.

What if I wrote a blog that gave you insight into a company that was started by two brothers in 1876 and is being reimagined by two brothers today?
