Automation can make your life easier when you build your own online business. When you are a person like I am, who loves to do other things than only working, then you have to find ways to outsource things or using tools that do the work for you.
For example, over the last weekend, my wife and I were hiking in the Swiss Alps. Although I only took my iPhone with me, my business was working. How can this be? Well, when you use the right tools, some parts of your work are running while you are doing other things.
Some Automation Tools I Use
Here I want to share some automation tools I use that help me in my business. Especially tools for link building are great to use for automation.
As you may hear about the latest Google Penguin update. With this update, they penalize web spam again. And this update influences the way how you plan your link building campaign. In principle, Google want’s that you create your backlinks manually, so that it looks natural.
To prevent from getting penalized by Google, you have to create your links in a slow way. And also you have to create better links with better quality content. You can also read my article about the article marketing strategy.
Social Adr is an amazing automation service to share your blog post on hundreds of different social media accounts. You enter the link and some text in it, check if everything is ok and puts the save button.
Your links will be shared over time to these different accounts. In this way, it looks more natural. The good thing is that you do the work once, and it’s done for you.
As you may know, Google loves when your posts are shared on different social sites and accounts. It shows them that your content is popular. And with this tool you get more link juice from social sites.
Magic Submitter is a cool tool to share your content to different kinds of sites. You can share it to bookmarking sites, video portals, wiki sites and many more. You can submit it up to 2000 sites.
All your campaigns you can manage yourself. This is very powerful because you decide to which site you submit your content. In this way, you can choose the quality of the links you get back. Especially after the updates from Google you can choose the quality of the sites you submit the content. Another great benefit is that you choose how long your campaign should run. Here I also recommend that you submit in on a low pace. For example over 60 days or more. So that Google thinks you do it all manually.
Social Monkee is my favorite tool. Especially when you upgrade to Ambassador Member. Besides that you can submit your content to more sites, your backlinks get also pinged to the search engines, so that they can find your backlinks. Another great thing as an Ambassador Member is that you can share your video and other people will watch your videos and give you more social proof. The same is with sharing each other content to the social sites through Only Wire.
Besides all these great feature in Social Monkee, there is more to it. As an Ambassador Member, you can join a private Facebook group. There you can ask questions and the owners of Social Monkee reply to your questions. This will help you a lot to do your campaigns the right way.
With Only Wire, you can share your content the easy way to 50 social networks without doing anything. Of Course, you have to set up these 50 social network profile. But you can do it very easily with Fiverr. Search for someone who sets up your profiles and your work is done.
The good thing with Only Wire is that you can save there your feed from your blog. Every time you publish a new blog post, Only Wire shares it on autopilot to all these social networks. And that’s time saving.
Conclusion About Automation
The tools I shared with you are all a great help when it comes to building backlinks and automation. But as I already mentioned, you have to be slow with it when you want to be on the safe side. Otherwise, you can trigger a red flag from Google. Another thing you should do is to spin your content when you submit it to different sites. I use Spin Rewriter for this.
It’s better to create fewer links but from better sources. Another way to build quality backlinks is to use private blog networks. From these, you can get real good backlinks. The disadvantage is that it takes time to build it and when you want access to an existing one; it cost a lot of money.
What you also have to keep in mind is that you need a variety of different backlinks. When you have them only from one source, it also raises a red flag.
Now you know how you can start your backlink campaigns and how to use automation to do it.
When you want to create the laptop lifestyle, like I do, than you need such tools I recommend in this post for automation.
