Most people think in order to have a presence on Social Media that they need to be on these platforms, every minute or hour of the day. That is not true, don’t get me wrong if you want to be on social media every minute or hour of the day, be my guest – but it is not needed.
When I first started out on Social Media in 2009 – I needed to figure out what can help me get out my content out without me being on line all the time. Finally I ran across 2 scheduling platforms that would allow me to schedule a date and time for my content to be posted on my social platforms, and to stay consistent as well. Here are some schedulers I found to be helpful – some are free platforms:
- Hootesuite – A scheduling system to share your content on social profiles, this scheduling system also allows you to view your analytics. – It allows you to share your content on 3 social profiles for free. For more social profiles paid pricing starts at $9.99 a month.
- Buffer – A scheduling system to share you content on social media. It allows you to share your content on 5 social profiles, lets you add 10 scheduled post per platform for free. For more social profiles – paid pricing begins at $10.00 a month.
I’ve used those 2 scheduling systems for years, but recently I started using Post Planner. This is a paid scheduling system, but much different than the two above. This platform hosts webinars, and helps you to help build followers and increase your engagement. Out of all 3 platforms, and Post Planner has been the most effective for me.
If you want to get more time to do other things, I would advise you to pick a scheduling platform and start sharing your content.
Do you use one of these scheduling systems? If not share what you use.
