Automated Content Sharing System w/ Revive Network WordPress Plugin

In this video, you're going to see a detailed tutorial on how to automatically share other websites’ content using the Revive Network plugin I’ll cover the whole process, from zero to checking out your queue of scheduled social media posts, so keep watching

Hi, my name is Robert and I make WordPress Video-Tutorials and Reviews on this channel for Beginners and Advanced If you enjoy the content and find it helpful, please consider subscribing Sharing other people’s content on social media is a great way to get noticed and build a stronger social network With that being said, doing it manually is a huge time-sink, which is why it can be helpful to find a way to automatically share other websites’ content on your social media accounts While there are non-WordPress tools like Buffer, the Revive Network plugin lets you automate the whole process without having to ever leave your WordPress dashboard

So, let's see it in action! Before moving on, you’ll need to actually install and activate the Revive Network plugin Because I talk about a premium plugin here, you’ll need to upload the ZIP file that you get after purchasing the plugin Once you install and activate it, enter your license key by going to Settings/General and scrolling down to the Revive Network license area

Once you’ve got the plugin activated, you’re ready to start setting it up The first thing you need to do is creating a Twitter or Facebook app I’ll show the steps for the Twitter app but remember that you can always find instructions for Facebook by clicking this link

To create your Twitter App, go here and click Create New App On the next screen, you need to fill out Application Details For the first three fields, you can enter whatever you’d like That is, the information won’t be seen by anyone but you But for the Callback URL, make sure that you enter the following

Then, click Create your Twitter application at the bottom On the next screen, click on the Keys and Access Tokens tab From there, you’ll need to copy the API Key and API Secret into your Revive Network dashboard Paste those values into the relevant boxes and click Save Settings: Next up, head to the Accounts tab Here, you’ll need to connect your actual social profiles You’ll only see options for the network that you created an app for

For example, I only created a Twitter app, so all I see here is an option to add a Twitter account To get started, click the Add Account button Assuming that you’re logged into Twitter, all you need to do is click the Authorize app button Ok, now you’re ready to start adding feeds for the content that you want to share RSS feeds are what actually allows you to automatically share other websites’ content

Basically, you’ll need to find the RSS feed for the blog content you want to share Generally, because most blogs are based on WordPress nowadays, a neat trick is to just append /feed to the end of any WordPress site’s URL to find its RSS feed Once you have the feed you want to share content from, go to the Feeds tab of Revive Network and fill in the options Feed Name is purely internal so make it something that’s easy for you to remember, and the feed URL is where you enter the direct URL to the RSS feed you found Twitter Handle is where you enter the username of the account you want to mention including the @ sign, and if you linked more than one of your own social media accounts, you can choose specific accounts here Once you’re finished, click Save Feed One of the neat things about Revive Network is that it lets you create one or more custom templates to structure your Tweets or Facebook posts You can also use dynamic variables to automatically insert relevant information about the post title or person you’re referencing

By default, the plugin includes three templates But you can always go in and delete those templates or add your own custom templates To do that, go to the Templates tab and click Add New: Here’s what the various fields mean: Template Name is just for internal use so make it something that’s easy to remember Check this box to use this template for Facebook posts, and check this to use it for Twitter posts too If you want to use this template only for Facebook or only for Twitter, check that specific box As for Template Content, it deserves more than a bullet point Basically, you’re going to mix plain text with the “Magic Tags” below the box Let’s say the most recent post you’re going to share is a post from @Themeisle titled “How to Use Revive Network” If you put this in the Template Content box

when Revive Network uses that template, it will automatically convert the magic tags into actual data from the post So it would look like this

In reality, the real URL would contain your UTM tags, but this is just an example Speaking of… once you save your template, go to the Edit UTM Tags tab to configure them UTM tags help your traffic show up in the analytics logs of the websites that you refer traffic to It’s a small thing, but it gives you “credit” for the traffic and helps influencers notice and appreciate, that you’re sending them traffic By default, the plugin will fill in the UTM tags based on your site’s URL

Most of the time, you can just leave these as the default But if you want to edit them, you can do that here Just like with the templates, you can use magic tags to insert dynamic information The {network} tag, in this case, will change to “twitter” or “facebook” depending on the actual network that you share the post on At this point, you’re all ready to start sharing! Before you do that, though, you should tell the plugin how often you actually want to share

To do that, go to Schedule and then click on the Share Settings Usually, you can leave these as the defaults But if you want to configure them further, here’s what each option means Check interval is how often the plugin checks RSS feeds for new posts The Posts to share option sets how many posts to share when the plugin finds new posts in a feed

Twitter share interval is how often to wait between sharing on Twitter and Facebook shares interval is how long to wait between sharing on Facebook Purge posts interval is where you can choose how long to store posts from a feed before the plugin clears it from the list Now’s the point when you can hit the Start Sharing button to kick the plugin into gear! Once you start sharing, you can monitor exactly what will be shared and when by going to the Scheduled tab You can also remove individual shares by hovering over them and choosing Remove Share And if you ever want to stop sharing, just click the Stop Sharing button to put the plugin on pause

Once you configure Revive Network, it’s easy to automatically share other websites’ content as needed Whenever you want to add a new source, all you need to do is create a new feed and template to quickly add that website to your repertoire Similarly, you can quickly remove existing feeds if you no longer want to share them
