So far I’ve shared why you need to incorporate images in your social media efforts (The Power of Vibrant Images – Part 1) and the tips and tools you need to create great shareable images (Part 2). Now let’s talk about tools and options to get your images disbursed to social media in a timely fashion.
Pingraphy: Pingraphy is an on-line option that allows scheduling of Pins on Pinterest over the course of days/weeks to help users abide by the unwritten rule of “dribble-don’t dump” when it comes to sharing their images. Pingraphy also has an option that can track Repins, Likes, Clicks and Reach for every Pin as well. This site is not free, but still pretty affordable.
Hootsuite provides you with the option (as you are scheduling your Tweets, LinkedIn posts, and Facebook updates) to attach an image. Look for the paper clip icon next to the scheduling option and attach your images to your outgoing social media updates.
Facebook Schedule Feature: When it comes to adding images to Facebook, Hootsuite will work, but your images will be larger and more prominent if you schedule them organically right within Facebook. Look for the clock image in the lower left corner of your update area to be able to schedule date and time for your vibrant images along with your updates.
