Postess With The Mostest: The Best Social Media Management Tools

Social Media Management Facebook Twitter

Reg­u­lar social media posts should be a part of your dai­ly con­tent plan but log­ging into each plat­form, each day, can be a time-con­sum­ing pain. Luck­i­ly, sched­ul­ing exists and we’re here to explain more. 

Social Media Management

Sched­ul­ing social media posts allows you to draft con­tent and set a future date and time for release. It enables you to work to a social media cal­en­dar and to ded­i­cate time each week/month to plan your posts and tweets; sav­ing you time. There are mul­ti­ple ways to sched­ule and man­age your social media con­tent and we’ve round­ed up the top four here:

Facebook

The Face­book sched­uler is built into the plat­form itself (both the web­site and pages man­ag­er app). Sim­ply cre­ate your post and select the arrow next to Pub­lish to set a future date and time for release. You can man­age all of your sched­uled posts under the Pub­lish­ing Tools sec­tion. 

With Face­book you can also view your posts’ ana­lyt­ics, add mul­ti­ple user admins to your page and pay to pro­mote your posts. 

Twitter

Twit­ter For Busi­ness users can also sched­ule their tweets. Cre­ate your tweet via the Cre­atives tab and sched­ule a future deliv­ery date and time, as well as man­aged all pre-sched­uled tweets here. 

Much like Face­book, Twit­ter For Busi­ness pro­vides your with ana­lyt­i­cal insights, mul­ti­ple users and to oppor­tu­ni­ty to pay for pro­mo­tion­al tweets. 

Face­book and Twit­ter’s tools are great but what if you have mul­ti­ple social media accounts and log­ging into each one indi­vid­u­al­ly to sched­ule con­tent is a bit of a drag?
