Social media scheduling tools can be a life (and time!) saver for speakers who want a presence on social media, but simply don’t have the time to consistently post to their accounts. Hootsuite (the one I use for many reasons) is a popular option that works well for scheduling updates on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ weeks or months in advance. However, there are two lesser-known tools users may want to consider adding to their arsenal in the interest of saving time.
Save time with 2 great Social Media scheduling tools!
Coschedule is a unique way to organize and schedule blog posts. This tool has a plugin for WordPress that includes perks like a drag and drop calendar, and the ability to schedule blog posts to Google+, Facebook and Twitter without leaving the site. It’s also helpful for rescheduling old blog content, and it’s a plugin that isn’t a resource hog on your WordPress site.
Another great web app by Coschedule is their headline analyzer. The headline analyzer is a stand-alone product, so it can be used whether you use Coschedule or not. The analyzer scores the types of words you use, the length of your headline and readability, and is great for honing your headline to try and get the best traction for it you can.[clickToTweet tweet=”Use Social Media scheduling tools to save time and streamline processes.” quote=”Use Social Media scheduling tools to save time and streamline processes.”]
Then there’s Tailwind. The TailwindApp is an auto scheduling tool for Pinterest. Users adore this tool because it solves the problem of having to manually load pins daily. While not a free app, the Small Business Plus Plan is $9.99 per month and includes features like Smart Pin Scheduling, Unlimited Pin Scheduling and Basic Profile & Board Metrics. There are a few other Pinterest scheduling tools out there – Viral Woot being one of them, but in looking at them, I really like Tailwind. Plus as an added bonus for those of us who use Hootsuite, Tailwind is now an add-on that integrates with the Hootsuite platform!
As you can tell, there are a ton of great social media tools out there that will allow you to schedule posts, tweets, pins and everything else under the sun. All of them geared to make life and business easier so you have more control over your time. In any case, your best bet is to check them out to see which ones will be the best fit for your business and wallet!
