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 rundown on the best-of-the-best in my opinion.
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 guesswork 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 month 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.

Thanks for the article. I have a favorite tool I wanted to share!
Riotly Social Media is a great tool that offers a free trial. The team helps Instagram users find and engage with their brand’s target audience, grow their followers and increase sales ORGANICALLY. It’s super useful for the little things that take forever to do – and there are no fake followers, no bots, nothing but real growth. I’d love it if you would add our service to your list!

WhatHappening i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I have found It absolutely helpful and it has helped me out loads. I hope to contribute & aid other users like its helped me. Good job.
Very informative I must say. I am an online entrepreneur and this type of information comprises a strong potential for development of my work. I use Combin to share my social media involvement which aimed at an organic audience and already started using Linktree for a constructive planning for my Instagram traffic.
I just love Pinterest because you can do so much @ once. It allows you to build your business presence with an array of free tools to help you build Pinterest traffic. Would you happen to know of any free tool that does a mass unfollow on Pinterest?
Hello, I’m not familiar of a tool like that, I’ve never had the need to unfollow.
