WordPress is a service for launching a personal website or a blog. To promote it, you'll need extra tools. One of them is Zapier.

WordPress & Short.io Zap helps to create short links for new blog articles. When a new article is published, a new short branded link appears in short URL list automatically.

This tool is helpful for saving time. Instead of copy-pasting, you immediately have a link shortened. After that, share links on social networks straight from Short.io dashboard.
