I am always looking for better and more effective ways to run my business. I’m asked about what tools I use all the time and I realized it’s been two years since I last wrote a post about my preferred methods for social media scheduling. There are lots of new companies in the market and I actually use a whole new set of tools since I shared last, so I thought I’d save you some of the trial and error and give you the run down on the best-of-the-best in my opinion.
Here are the tools I use to run my social media like a pro:
for Twitter and Facebook
This tool is a game changer for so many reasons. It can be very frustrating to spend time scheduling out tweets over and over again, especially with the risk of them never being seen. SmarterQueues recycling post feature totally sold me on this service. You never run out of posts – schedule them once and they loop forever! SmarterQueue also has categorized content calendars to keep you organized and analytics so you can learn what’s working and what’s not. I think I’m going to write a whole post dedicated to SmarterQueue because it just has SO much to offer!
Pricing starts at $16.99 a month (on the annual plan) – get an extended free trial by clicking here.
Tailwind has many of the same features as SmarterQueue, but for Pinterest. It does not automatically loop your content for you, but their browser plugins make pinning incredibly easy.
The smart-scheduling option takes the guess work out of choosing the best times to pin plus you get access to great analytical insights, can connect your Google analytics, batch pin and interval pin.
Pricing starts at $9.99 a month – get a free trial or $30 off of the Tailwind PLUS plan by clicking here.
I’ve been using Later (Formerly Latergramme) for two years and it just keeps getting better. A few of my favorites features are the drag and drop calendar interface, grid preview, saved captions (great for hashtags that you use over and over again), hashtag suggestions and the search and repost feature.
There is a free forever plan which is limited to 30 posts, get 10 extra posts by clicking here.
Do you have any favorite tools that we missed here?
