Social media can be such a time suck! But you can beat it and build a thriving online presence by using a social media management tool.
If you are like me, you probably detest manually uploading photos to Instagram from your mobile and trying to think up captions off the top of your head. With Later it’s a million times better. You can upload and schedule your Instagram posts from your computer (or mobile phone) then Later sends you an alert on your mobile to remind you to publish it, which you can do easily from your mobile.
This social media sharing tool helps schedule tweets and Facebook messages and graphical posts with just a few clicks. It builds up a database of blog content, recommended articles, quotes and graphics you want to share on your social media profiles, and publishes for you on a regular schedule. Just start adding content, like your past blog posts, some of your favorite quotes, a few questions to engage your fans, etc. Then select how often you want to post to each of your accounts…it’s that easy! The downside is that it is pricey. But if it’s important to you that your evergreen content is reshared then it might be worth the investment.
Buffer is used to schedule tweets via the rss feeds of blogs. The free version is good for most and it is so simple to use. There is also a browser plugin, so you can right-click on any image (or highlight text) and immediately send it to your Buffer. You can customise when you want posts going out for each platform and it even allows you to “buffer” to Pinterest. Amazing!
