A blog that isn’t updated regularly is a dead blog. You might as well say goodbye to your readership if you don’t have quality posts on your blog on a regular basis. That’s why both John and I have discussed the power of the WordPress timestamp feature. By using the timestamp, you can effectively write many of your blog posts in advance, getting them to go live at whatever point in the future that you’d like. This comes in really handy when you go on vacation, for example, and you may not have consistent access to the Internet.
Expanding on this concept is Blog Warrior Elite, the online application that serves as the subject of today’s review. You get the same concept as the WordPress timestamp, but Blog Warrior Elite is quite a bit more powerful than that. Don’t just timestamp one post at a time; timestamp tens, hundreds, even thousands of articles at a time.
Designed for Regular Bloggers, PLR Article Users, Slave Sites…
This may be hard to believe, but you may not always have full acecss to the Internet. During these times, you can still draft up your blog posts in Notepad and save them on your local hard drive. Continuing with this concept, you may have multiple authors on one of your blogs and you may not want to grant them full access to your WordPress dashboard. And let’s not forget about people who purchase PLR articles for posting on their sites as well. There are literally tons of scenarios just like these where Blog Warrior Elite can come in pretty handy.
In a nutshell, you can compress your articles into a single ZIP archive and upload them into Blog Warrior Elite. From there, the individual articles can be published on your blog using whatever schedule that you would like. When you consider the alternative — copying and pasting individual articles into the WordPress Write tool — you can see how an article import tool like Blog Warrior Elite can save you quite a bit of time. Don’t set those timestamps one at a time; set them all at once through the Blog Warrior Elite online interface. You can also publish these articles on multiple blogs from a single interface.
Adding Blogs and Importing Articles
The main user interface may look pretty confusing at first, but that’s why there is a substantial help section on the site as well. The quick start guide is particularly helpful. In short, you create a user profile in your WordPress blog, add your blog to the Blog Warrior Elite application, upload your articles, select the ones that you would like to publish, and set the time intervals for the articles to go live.
Perhaps one of the coolest features of Blog Warrior Elite is the ability to create a semi-random publishing schedule for the articles that you are uploading. When you have a very distinct posting schedule, readers may think that the publishing schedule is automated. This semi-random schedule, — read more about it here — gives readers the impression that you are actually publishing these articles live. Much more organic-looking.
Lucrative Affiliate Program
The affiliate control panel is actually much more attractive than the main control panel for Blog Warrior Elite. Don’t you think it looks a little like the user interface on the Apple iPhone, only with a lot more red? The individual icons illuminate as you hover your mouse pointer over them.
The affiliate program pays 70% for every sale that you refer and these commissions are given out for every month as long as the referred membership stays active. It’s also very nice that you don’t necessarily need to use your provided affiliate link. Simply provide your own domain, verifying it by uploading a small text file, and all traffic sent from your site to their site qualifies for affiliate commissions.
Timestamp Your Way to Success
I’m not entirely sure how useful this online application would be for regular Joe bloggers who only publish a new blog post once a day or so, but it can come in very handy for people who manage multiple blogs and those who import a good number of PLR articles, for example. The interface is quite streamlined and I particularly like the option for a semi-random posting schedule. There’s even a built-in tool to check for duplicates.
Blog Warrior Elite costs $17 a month on a month-to-month basis. Alternatively, you can opt to pay $84 for six months ($14/month) or $120 for twelve months ($10 a month). Feel free to check out the free demo to get a feel for Blog Warrior Elite, but know that the free trial has limited functionality.
