This versatile app lets you upload any type of content, including infographics and videos, and easily distribute it to numerous social media networks. The system solves the problem of not having enough time to sit there posting ongoing social media messages. With a Pixxfly account, you can create messages in the morning or evening, and then schedule them to automatically go out at different times of the day.

Choose from several templates that make your messages look polished and professional. You can actually test templates to find the ones that readers respond to best. Once you have that information, you can save your best performing templates. This is a great system to use for distributing press releases to newspapers, online news databases, journalists and various influencers. There is also an RSS feed component for fast syndication of articles and blog posts.

The analytics feature is excellent. A screen display shows you all sorts of data using simple to understand charts and graphs. All of this data can be quickly converted into a professional style PDF report for downloading.

Everybody’s got at least one great story to tell and that includes people who visit your online sites and social media pages. User generated content is one of the best things in the world for businesses, and some people can’t resist sharing bits and pieces of their life with anyone paying attention. Until recently, most user generated content was just a lucky happenstance, sitting stagnant on a blog or social media page.

Tint is changing all of that. Anyone who attends one of your events can now experience their 15 minutes of social media fame. This app integrates with websites and creates a “living images” board that is constantly updating with user generated images. For instance, event attendees can instantly share a quick selfie by snapping photos and sharing them via a designated hashtag. These images can be displayed on small and large video screens, which gives you lots of sharing versatility.

What makes Tint great is that it’s a lot of fun for event participants and those watching all of the action unfold. The app interface is easy to use, but there is support available when needed.
