Become a prolific social poster in only a few clicks!
You’ve invested time and energy in creating killer piece of content. Make sure it gets discovered again and again by automatically reposting it to your Twitter account and other social media platforms with RecurPost.
Once its RecurPost is set-up, it will keep your best content alive for longer and save time crafting and posting individual updates. You have total control over the where, what and frequency of each post, or can assign this responsibility to RecurPost which will optimise it all for you. It will even pull stories from your favourite blogs’ RSS Feeds or Google Alerts, keeping your content calendar full and varied. In other words, it can deliver your Twitter marketing strategy for you!
RecurPost was founded by Dinesh Agarwal, a scientist turned entrepreneur from Surat in India.
His lightbulb moment for the tool came when trading marketing support for equity in startups, responsible for raising awareness and growing their order books. “What if I could give new life to their great content and blog posts that have been forgotten?” he asked himself.
One of the internal tools he built solved they very issue, resurfacing golden content and social media marketing time and again, with very little effort. Turns out, many others shared his desire to automate Twitter and make their life easier.
We spoke to Dinesh about his experiences as a Maker and how he intends for RecurPost users to see a return on their subscription within three months.
RecurPost’s free version allows you to add up to three social accounts and recycle 100 evergreen posts. That’s plenty for a review.
I used RecurPost myself for a couple of months to automate my Twitter account. It fixes a very real problem for me in that I have a love/hate relationship with social media – one month it saps far too much of my time, followed by much-needed periods of digital detox. Auto-schedulers such as RecurPost allow me to post my reviews once and forget it, keeping my Twitter feed fresh and freeing up time to check out more marketing tools.
I haven’t used all the features, such as team management and white label reporting, but consider these to be a sideshow to the main act of recurring posts. This was all about Twitter growth and engagement on autopilot.
This is your control centre and the first screen your hit with after creating an account.
First step is start connecting your social accounts – there’s 9 to choose from, across all the major platforms bar Pinterest. A couple of clicks and your set.
Now it’s all about building up your content library and content calendar.
You’ve a few options here: paste a link you want to share, import from a CSV, grab your existing posts from your social account or compose an update from scratch. All that’s left is to work out your reposting schedule (e.g. every week or month) and RecurPost does the rest.
This setup is about as easy as it comes. I can’t even comprehend the hours saved already!
Easily add content to your libraries, either in bulk or by crafting posts one-by-one. Import options include: web app; Chrome plugin; directly via other tools; mobile app; Google Alerts or RSS feed (Premium).
From there, you can schedule directly onto all the major platforms, including Facebook (Profile, Page, Group), LinkedIn (Post, Company Page), Twitter accounts (Profile), Instagram (Personal or Business Profile) or Google My Business. Sadly, there’s no integration with Instagram Stories yet.
Preview and customise a shared link across multiple social accounts. You can change the date and time as well as the title, image and description, adding hashtags or emojis with ease. Posts can be edited any time before sending and can be stopped anytime.
Send more tweets, more often. The frequency of your posts can be easily set to daily, weekly, or monthly. Choosing ‘monthly’ also allows you to select specific dates for the posts.
Alternatively, you can ask RecurPost’s AI to automatically determine the best time of day to share automated tweets based on when your audience is most likely to respond. It’s worth noting that info is limited on exactly how they determine the optimum time to post but it’s a another decent twitter automation feature.
Behold your now busy content calendar. RecurPost gives you a neat at-a-glance view of your scheduled posts across all platforms up to two months ahead. You can also edit posts from here before they go out, add images and set end dates.
Keep your finger on the pulse by getting all your DMs, messages, comments and requests in one place. RecurPost’s inbox dashboard also lets you assign replies, reply directly without having to visit the platform, apply custom labels and favourite important messages.
If you’re anything like me, a direct message can easily be forgotten about when using Twitter’s app, so this is a very welcome addition.
Have you grown your Twitter followers? What type of content works best?
See what works, or not, to increase your future engagement. You can compare against previous periods too and white label reports for clients. You’ll need a separate social tool for more advanced twitter analytics (e.g. demographic breakdowns) but RecurPost can work with link shorteners for some extra insights.
Growing your social media accounts can be a team sport. Upgrade to Medium plans and above and RecurPost allows you to invite your team members and virtual assistants to collaborate with you on your account.
This includes approving and rejecting content. If something is going out again and again you’ll want it to be on brand and adding value.
Social automation tools often fall foul of terms of service updates. RecurPost keeps on top of these and tweaks its features accordingly, such as rewriting your post to get round Twitter’s rule on not sending the same Tweet multiple times on the same account or on multiple accounts.
Vanishing stories are exploding so it’s a big hole in RecurPost’s offering. Tools such as Buffer allow you to prepare multiple Stories at a time with simple drag-and-drop functionality. Given the different orientation – portrait vs landscape – RecurPost will have to weigh up whether adding more formats slows down their streamlined reposting flow.
Whilst the daily/weekly/monthly options keep things simple, some people may wish for more flexibility when it comes to how often their posts resurface. One workaround we discovered is by choosing ‘monthly’ you can manually specify the day of the month. Not perfect but it’ll do.
Ever received a speedy welcome message from a new follow in your Twitter DMs? RecurPost doesn’t yet offer automated direct messages and automated replies. Many consider use of these Twitter bots spammy behavior and question their effectiveness so it’s probably no big loss.
from $0 per month
RecurPost’s free account gets your 10 updates per day, per account and should be plenty for sporadic social updaters. However, if you want to be prolific, upgrading unlocks video updates, team features, tweet variations and content imports from RSS feeds and other social media management tools. Not bad for $15 per month!
Deal hunters will want to pay annually to get two months free.

There’s tons of social media aggregators and schedulers, but relatively few that offer automatic reposting.
Of the Twitter automation tools, MeetEdgar and Publer are the most popular. I use MeetEdgar myself. Both offer native video and image posting, libraries to store and organise your content and reports. The big bonus with MeetEdgar vs RecurPost is auto-variations and A/B testing, so you can post once and continuously improve – a slight upgrade on post and forget. MeetEdgar probably just has the nod on its interface too. RecurPost counters with higher usage rates.
Oh, and don’t forget to setup your Linktree to share all your top content on social media via a single link.
RecurPost is intuitive enough to automatically tweet solo but should you get stuck there’s a wealth of help articles on hand. Or you can schedule a free live demo direct from the console.
If you run your own business, it’s easy to forget to post to social media on a regular basis. Luckily, RecurPost automates the chore of doing so, reposting your greatest hits across all the main platforms.
Like all user-friendly tools, it doesn’t try to do too much. Its features stick to this sole purpose and your first batch of content can be scheduled in only a few minutes after sign-up. What’s more, if you don’t wish to keep more than three social accounts updated, you can do so on the free plan. Businesses or agencies overseeing multiple brands or clients will however get a lot of value from paid versions of RecurPost and, starting at $15 per month, it’s more than affordable.
One might argue that recycling old posts isn’t in the spirit of social sharing or an effective engagement strategy for businesses to adopt, however RecurPost solves a much greater crime of not promoting your top content enough. My Twitter account and LinkedIn profile used to be guilty of that. But, no more! It also counters with unlimited variations of your posts on Twitter, the end result feeling perfectly natural to anybody exposed to the same content multiple times in their timeline.
It’s encouraging to see RecurPost improving all the time. Its new Social Inbox is the biggest update, allowing you to see and reply to all DMs, messages, comments and requests in one place. More recent updates include: the ability to post to Facebook Groups as a FB Page; a more responsive site; and longform posting on LinkedIn (up to 3,000 characters).
All in all, RecurPost is an extremely cost-effective solution for a very real problem. Once you’ve set it up, it takes care of a very repetitive task and you needed worry about it ever again. For that reason it’s one of my favourite Twitter automation tools.
