If you haven’t discovered Posterous.com by now then you may be wasting precious hours posting content to all your social sites. Most of us aren’t writers, including me, so I know how long it can take to write one article. Often I’ll write different ones in order to add content to all the social sites I have. It took a while but I eventually worked out that I don’t need to. In fact I can publish my one article across multiple platforms, all at the same time, simply by sending one email from my computer. If I am away from my desk I can easily do it from my smart phone. I call this speed marketing at is best and it’s perfect for any small business promotion.

Posterous posts to all the popular socials sites plus many, many more. The most commonly used LinkedIn, twitter, facebook, blogs, flickr, tumblr, YouTube, Vimeo, etc are all included in the program. Others are: Picassa, Blogger, WordPress, Xanga, Drupal, Plurk, Friendfeed and Delicious with many more to come.

All you need to do is set up a free account, in fact you can do that right now by emailing post@posterous.com with what you want to post. That’s it, seriously, how quick and easy is that? Once you have an account go to the Autopost page and start selecting the different social sites and platforms you want your information to go to automatically.

If you have a number of sites it could take about 30 minutes to get them all activated in Posterous but once you have done this the rest is so unbelievably easy a five year old can do it.

Here is why I like this. Once you have written the article and you want to post it in your blog, send a message to your LinkedIn network, your tweeps or friends and followers in facebook then you simply email it to post@poesterous.com. If you have an image that you want to share or post as well them attach it to your email. You can also include links to videos or audio files; yes they’ll get posted as well.

Now all you have to do is click and abracadabra your article is automatically posted to all your sites in an instant.

It took me ten minutes to write this blog and 3 minutes to email to Posterous and only seconds to end up in a number of my social sites. What more needs to be said. If that is not speed marketing for my small business promotion I don’t know what is.
