“My biggest challenge is to figure out how to manage all my social media sites daily so I could spend more time on my business.“
Is this you?
If your answer is yes, today I’m going to talk about 2 tools I like and recommend you use to manage all your social media profiles in just a few minutes a day. Using these tools you’ll save tons of time in dealing with all your socia media profiles.
How do you do that ?
You schedule questions, conversation prompts and educational content ahead of time. Smart, right?
So here are the 2 tools I’m talking about:
1. Hootsuite (https://hootsuite.com)
2. Buffer (https://bufferapp.com )
Although I use both of them, I must say, my favorite is Hootsuite . Let’s talk a bit about Hootsuite:
1) 1) Hootsuite allows you to send updates to all of your social networks at the same time. ( Simply write the update, choose the networks, set the time you want for your update to be sent ( you have 3 options : “send now”, “autoschedule for optimum impact” or you can choose a precise time using the mini calendar included).
Here is a printscreen I took so you’ll get a better understanding of what I’m saying.
What I like the most when using Hootsuite is that the dashboard allows you to see all of your social media profiles, divided into various tabs, all on one screen and that’s why updating and monitoring multiple profiles at once becomes very, very easy.
I should also mention that Hootsuite is free for up to 5 social media profiles. At this time, for only $5.99 you can add up to 50 profiles, get better analytics, RSS feeds and other cool features.
2 2) Buffer : on the free plan, you can only connect one of each social profile– one Twitter, one Facebook, one LinkedIn, etc. If you want to add a second account from the same social network ( let’s say you’ve added your Facebook profile and now you want to add your FB page) for $10/month you can add up to 12 profiles. Here is the print screen I took, however Buffer only allows you to see the update you’re about to share now, schedule or buffer.
