Eliminate Wasted Time Scrolling with this Free Launchpad
I have wasted hours sharing world edu posts on social media. No, it is not a waste of time to share your writing, but there is a tool to increase efficiency.
If you are going to dedicate time to writing, create a system to share your words with the world. My system has been a work in progress but with refinement, I am learning to quickly share articles on social media.
I began by identifying the main topics of my essay: writing, parenting, education, pets, and health. Since receptive audiences can be found on Facebook, I searched for groups on each topic and joined several.
After writing and publishing on Medium, the articles’ links are shared across appropriate sites. I found myself scrolling through MANY groups and wasting time because there exists no easy system on Facebook to assemble groups by common topics. Enter pinpoint.
At https://pinpoint.wiki a launchpad can be created by category — for free. The site promotes itself as a means to “connect followers to your entire online world.”
“Use it anywhere. Take your pinpoint wherever your audience is, to help them to discover all your important content.”
“Link to everywhere. pinpoint is the launchpad to your latest video, article, recipe, tour, store, website, social post — everywhere you are online.”
“Easily managed. Creating a pinpoint takes seconds. Use our simple drag-and-drop editor to effortlessly manage your content.”
For my purpose, I created a header for each category . Then I entered all the sites where I post associated with that topic. I started with Facebook groups and then added LinkedIn, Twitter, Reddit, Vocal Media, Manystories and Quora. Now in just a few minutes I can post to multiple sites, simply by clicking on the title . This is a snapshot of what I see. Each blue box provides a link.
The process is effortless and focused. A plus is that with each click a new page opens keeping pinpoint available and bookmarking where I left off.
If you are looking for shortcuts, want to share posts with on multiple sites, and are tired of scrolling up and down looking for the appropriate place to add your story, try pinpoint.
I love it!
