6 Syndication Services to Make Life Easier

Posted by Mark Thompson - March 9, 2010 - Tools - 4 Comments

Syndication services can be a real time saver.  I have used a few of them in the past and found that it can be a great way to spread content across the web.  Of course with syndication, comes duplicate content and borderline spamming, so you want to use in moderation.  Whether you are submitting a classified listing, updating a social status, marketing products and services, or spreading content, you can find a syndication tool that will aggregate popular sites for you to save you time.

Lets take a look at 5 of my favorite syndication tools and services.

vFlyer

Great list Mark. I'm a big fan of ping.fm and Tubemogul. I also work with Realtors quite a bit so I'll check out vFlyer. I've seen Postlets before ... mostly abused on Facebook Pages and Twitter.

Hi, I am the Marketing Director at HeySpread.Thanks for this good article.That is true, Tubemogul is a one service.But you should really have a look at HeySpread for Professional Video Analytics and Video Distribution - http://bit.ly/5mD1CL. Far cheaper, with exclusive features such as YouClone (copy/paste your YouTube videos to any other platform automatically and in one shot), powerful and user-friendly interface, REST API for an easy and fast white label integration.
