Comments: I run a newsletter that links out to others' blogs. I send this out every Monday. Start a Fire is an elegant re-engagement app that helps my articles get more reads while I'm linking to others blogs. Also, being free is hard to complain about.

Pros: Once it is integrated (and it's easy set up) there really isn't much to worry about or think about.

Cons: So far, nothing. It is nice software.

Overall: This is very interesting software--especially if you are sharing links and want traffic through recommended links/stories/posts etc. The most helpful part is that it is fully integrated with our social media posting platform (we use software called HubSpot for posting to social sites). Start A Fire is integrated with them so once it is set up it brands it for us. This has helped us reach new audiences beyond social media targeting.

Pros: It's great for influencer marketing, it plays nicely with socialmedia management tools and content curation tools.

Cons: It's a bit exhausting having to add custom recommended contents to each links that way it doesnt choose two random recommended contents from the links i've added. However, I dont think there is a way aroud it.

Overall: I came across Start a Fire while searching for free alternatives to Sniply, On a comment either on Reddit or Quora. I decided to try it on my book blog with little to no expectations, the sign in was smooth (I signed in with Twitter), and I followed the mini tutorial on signup to create short links from posts on other book blogs.

I then ¿recommended¿ some of my own blog posts which were added as a badge to the short links. I shared the short links on Facebook and Twitter using Buffer. I loved the results so I kept creating links from other book blogs and recommending mine, eventually the process seemed exhausting so I quit for a few days.

I¿m not sure what made me come back to try the integrations feature but I did, I connected Start a Fire to Buffer and automatically links on my Buffer posts were turned to SaF links with my posts as ¿recommendations¿

I made full use of this by connecting my Buffer to Crate and other content generation tools, and the links were automatically shortened to the SaF links with my posts as recommendations.
I began using it not just for my blog but for the brands I manage. It was a great way for them to be seen as influencers.

SaF integrates with Buffer, Hootsuite, CoSchedule, Meet Edgar, WordPress and many other software¿s.
