Another Thumbs Up for HootSuite
I have often written about and recommended the use of social media for Internet Marketing efforts, and with the vast amount of networks in which we need to be active, managing all of them can prove to be overwhelming. I personally promote my Dart Shirts business on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, YouTube, Pinterest, FourSquare and Tumblr. How do I stay on top of all of them? A simple tool called Hootsuite.
Hootsuite is a social relationship platform for businesses and organizations to collaboratively execute social media strategies across the major social networks from one secure, web-based dashboard. Advanced functionality includes tools for audience engagement, team collaboration, account security and comprehensive analytics for end-to-end measurement and reporting.
One of my preferred and most used features from Hootsuite is the ability to schedule posts in advance, as well as post to one account and have that one action take place across multiple social networks. The ability to post once across all of my networks saves an immeasurable amount of time, and the scheduling feature allows me to leave the office when necessary and have my marketing tasks set on auto pilot.
- Schedule and automatically publish 100’s of messages
- Manage and post to multiple Social Profiles
- Add up to 9 Team Members to your account
