I wouldn’t have the time to write this review before as I had been pushing my effort as hard as I was before ViralTag. Now ViralTag leads me to have a more balanced lifestyle, away from the computer, back in my creative charging zones.
In this post, I am going to share my experience about ViralTag!
I will demonstrate you how useful ViralTag can be for scheduling & Posting your visual social media content especially for Pinterest.
When I first heard about this social media tool I thought to myself, hmm…it might seem like something I could just do manually myself.
But ViralTag is really astonishing….. Yeah….ViralTag is one of the best tools for posting and sharing visual contents to both Instagram and Pinterest.
What is ViralTag?
ViralTag is a popular social media visual marketing tool that can be used for scheduling of visual posts to be shared across major social networking sites such as Pinterest and Facebook. Within only a few years of its launch, ViralTag has gained big popularity because of its easy scheduling and a wide range of social media marketing options.
You may have come across or even used many social posts scheduling programs, but this one allows you to schedule image-focused posts for visual social media websites like Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook. So, if your business or marketing involves sharing a lot of images on social media, this is just the tool you need to save time and energy.
I started using ViralTag a few months ago and was really impressed by the results I achieved so far! What we have experienced is a steady flow of traffic to our blog 24/7. The best part is, that I can be able to manage my major social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Tumblr) and create social media editorial calendar using the platform all at once.
And one thing I was greatly enthralled is “Ease of Use”. I have tried many different options to ease my task of scheduling and posting social media contents but ViralTag is at the top of my list for the ease of use.
ViralTag comes with a free Chrome extension that you can install in a second. I personally love using Pinterest to follow up with my followers but sometimes it seems a little bit difficult due to my hectic schedule. But now with the use of ViralTag, I am able to schedule my pins out at the times that are convenient to my readers.
Complete Review of ViralTag
Once you signed up into ViralTag using the login credentials, you’ll be invited to add your social media accounts where all the social media accounts are enlisted. Here I have added my Pinterest account and then clicked on the “Connect” button.
Once you click on the connect button, you’ll be asked for the permission for ViralTag to access your social media site accounts. Now you can start scheduling and posting your social media content.
You can upload the images from Facebook, Dropbox or search for new images from Google, Flickr, and Instagram and so on…. When you schedule a post, it will appear in the dashboard as below.

Post/Upload Images from Anywhere (Image Sourcing)
From the above description and steps, you can think of ViralTag as any other social media scheduling platform. But the thing that makes it unique and different is its virtual marketing feature.
ViralTag allows you to post or upload images from a number of sources so that you can easily attach viral images to your posts. There are basically five ways to add images for scheduling in ViralTag.

Design Your Visual Content With ViralTag
You can create your own visual content design inside ViralTag dashboard. Under your ViralTag account Settings » Content » Design.
Recently ViralTag has integrated with Canva one of the most easy to use and best social media visual content designer tool which can create almost all types of social media visuals without any professional designing knowledge.
It has very easy user interface that you can create any social media visual content within 5-10 mins. I am myself a big fan of Canva Tool.
ViralTag Third-Party Integrations
You can even improve the functionality of ViralTag by enabling the useful integrations from the “Integrations” tab. Some popular options include Bitly, Google Analytics, and UTM tracking. By connecting these integration tools, you can leverage the benefits of these third-party tools within your ViralTag account for better visual social media marketing.
For example, you can keep track of the actual real-time performances of your schedule posts by integrating with Google Analytics. If you’re already using Google Analytics, you must know that it is the best tool to analyze the performance of any marketing campaigns.
Traffic Insight & Engagement
ViralTag also has inbuilt reporting option where you can keep track of your social media traffic. It shows the overview of the traffic generated by your scheduled posts. It also recommends the best time to post, based on the performance of your existing campaigns.
Here I am using my 4 different Social network accounts! As you may have noticed in the below screenshot. Apart from ease of scheduling and posting, ViralTag also helps to monitor the performance of the content you posted. Integrated with Google Analytics, ViralTag also has an inbuilt Analytics that lets you monitor the posts you made on various social networks.
One more thing I like about ViralTag reporting section. They have also advanced their Pinterest report section in past years.
Now you can view all required analytics about your particular Pinterest account. There will be a detailed summary about your Pinterest account for which you can select your prefer date range.
Other then this you can check your Pinterest account engagement report, followers growth, most engaging Pins and most engaging boards.
If Pinterest report is not enough for you, try their Analytic option just next to Pinterest report. You can find reports of all your connected social media accounts such as; Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest. The report format will be divided into three section report which includes Engagement, Followers and Best times.
Pricing & Plans
Also, ViralTag never disappoints me when it comes to pricing and plans. First of all, I just signed up for a free ?14 day trial of ViralTag to test it out whether it works out or not.
Compare to other tools available for the same purpose, ViralTag offers quite impressive plans which comes under budget for an Individual.
After 14 days trail period expired I asked them to extend my trail period and without any questions they extended it for 1 more week and just to get to know more about ViralTag I asked them to extended this tool for more than twice I think.

About ViralTag Support
In past few years they have improved their support performance. They are now providing live chat support for everyone (registered member or just visitor) I can simply chat with them from inside my dashboard and the maximum waiting duration I have encountered till now is around 10-20 mins. Visitors can talk to their support just by visiting their official site and a sidebar chat support pop-up will welcome you.
Even, I like ViralTag, there are always few pros and cons to everything. I wish to mention it here, as those are worth mentioning.
