I recommend using Hootsuite for all social media posting. It’s a simple tool that allows you to create, organize, and schedule posts to all social media platforms, all in one place. It’s easy to use and making edits and changes is a breeze! Accounts can have multiple users, allowing content creators to create drafts and managers to easily edit, approve, and schedule posts. It’s especially helpful for agencies with multiple clients’ social media accounts to keep track of!

The best tool that we use to manage the social media of our business and our client’s business is Hootsuite.

The social media scheduling feature frees us up (we can set posts and forget it), edit posts, reschedule them (which we have had to do a lot in light of the virus) and the posting is super reliable. We have multiple clients set up in ONE dashboard so instead of logging into multiple accounts, we can see and manage ALL the social media (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Instagram) scheduled and we can even see mentions.

In order to manage multiple clients, it’s important to stay organized. I love using Hootsuite. The platform is free up to three channels and after that, they have very reasonable annual fees based on how many accounts you have. You can publish directly to Instagram, which many platforms CANNOT do. This was a big win for us.

With Hootsuite, you can schedule content, create analytics reports to track your account’s progress (engagement, likes, followers, etc.) and create streams that are basically a homepage for all published posts, scheduled posts, and any posts that contain hashtags that are relevant to your brand or business. Super helpful!

Hootsuite is among the most popular social media management platforms, offering an overview of all your social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+, LinkedIn and Instagram along with the option to create and schedule content, analyze performance, and monitor your favorite topics and hashtags. There’s a good reason for the social media platform’s success. It’s an all-in-one platform that allows you to curate and schedule content, measure your social return of investment and run social media ads.

This is a very helpful tool I use to preschedule my posts all on one platform. Scheduling posts 30 days in advanced can be a huge time saver for posting my content so that I can focus more on creating content.

Hootsuite is a great tool for those that want to increase their social media engagement. It can be managed by several members of your team and allow you to delegate tasks to each one. You can also manage multiple social media platforms at once and schedule posts in advance. When you come up with new strategies, you’re able to view your analytics and utilize the reporting features if you want a professional document on your social media progress.

As a social media manager/marketer, I personally use Hootsuite as my go-to social media management tool.

I am a huge fan of Hootsuite and I recommend this tool to others because it is convenient and efficient as you are able to see all your social media platforms under one tab/page. This is a huge advantage for many people especially social media managers as they are very time-sensitive.

Also, it allows them to schedule their posts for later dates which is also a bonus point. Hootsuite also makes social listening much easier for social media marketers and managers.

As Marketing Lead I’m in charge of Social Media and am happily using the free version of Hootsuite. I especially like the handy “Publisher” Feature which allows me to write one post for different Social Media channels. I love, that I can still adapt the tracking link for every Social Media channel individually. It is a huge time saver.

Also, I love the calendar view with the scheduled posts. You get everything at a glance and the whole team is up to date.

Additionally, it helps us to monitor the social media as we track keywords with the monitoring service.

To sum it up, I think the free version of Hootsuite is a good tool for small businesses with limited Marketing budget.
