HootSuite Review

Social media management programs like Hootsuite and others can save you a huge amount of time if you plan on posting regular messages on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

Automating some tasks will save you a lot of time and can be done well with automation tools include scheduling recurrent posts, sharing blog posts, sharing events and spreading out your posts.

However, there are some tasks you don’t want to automate like automatically sending a reply to posts, commenting on posts, replying to Tweets and more. I highly recommend that you posts replies and comments manually.

Hootsuite

Hootsuite is a popular social media management tool. It is one of the safest programs to use today.

I’ve been using Hootsuite for about two year now to post messages to Twitter and Facebook. Hootsuite is great for scheduling my messages. You can schedule updates to specific social media accounts at specific times. This can come in really handy to spread out your posts and to schedule posts at specific times when you are away from your computer.

Here’s some ideas on how you can benefit from HootSuite’s scheduling:

  • Spread out your posts. When selecting blog posts or articles you want to send to your followers, space them out over hours or days instead of sending all your content at once.
  • Schedule time-sensitive tweets in advance so you don’t forget to send important messages.
  • Remind people of any kind of deadline.
  • Remind people of an upcoming event or seminar or webinar.
  • Remind people of discounts or specials that will expire soon (great for promoting affiliate programs).

Here are some of the features of HootSuite:

  • You can manage multiple social networks from one dashboard, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn,  Google+ and more.
  • It’s great for scheduling messages. I set up my messages for a complete month and don’t have to think about it until the next month.
  • HootSuite App Directory (Instagram, SlideShare, YouTube, MailChimp and many more).
  • Engagement, Team Collaboration, Analytics.
  • Remind people of an upcoming event or seminar or webinar.
