It’s impossible to be on social media at all hours of the day. Luckily, you don’t have to be. By utilizing scheduling tools, you can preschedule your tweets and posts, allowing you to get your stuff seen by much more people. Here are 4 of the best social media management tools.
This tool is used by many big companies and bloggers across the web. It is a great management tool that can help you schedule posts for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media platforms. From one dashboard, you can manage multiple accounts, see all your posts and even measure your performance. If you plan to manage 5 or less platforms, you can sign up for a free account.
Another one of the top social media management tools, Buffer allows you to manage accounts like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and even Pinterest. It’s similar to HootSuite, Buffer allows you to schedule posts across all of your accounts at one time, saving you even more time.
If you just want to preschedule and track your Twitter account (or accounts), then a free SocialOomph account will work great for you. A free account will allow you to schedule tweets, track your keywords, track your clicks, view your mentions and retweets and manage your DM box for up to 5 Twitter accounts. If you sign up for a Professional account, you get access to much more services, including features for Facebook and LinkedIn, and the cool ability to tweet via your email.
This management tool is a little different, but still very useful. This service allows users to create recipes so that if “this” happens, then “that” will happen. The conditions are triggered when changes are made to one part of the equation. For example, you can set up a recipe to tweet every time your site publishes a new blog post. Or you can send out a tweet every time your Facebook photo is updated. There are many preset recipes you can use, or you can make up your own.
It pays to be on social media often, but that doesn’t mean you have to be physically on at all hours. By using social media management tools, you can preschedule your posts way ahead of time, manage multiple accounts and look like you’re available 24/7.
