Time doesn’t wait, nor does what happens 24x7x365 on social media. If you’re not ‘always’ online, you could be losing out on a lot of your target audience’s engagement. The sad part? It does not spare anyone – not the one who is down with a viral or the one who is on a vacation after almost an year. You miss a day of interacting with your community, and you’ll see your sales graph screaming alert!
Here are 7 tools that I use to keep myself online all the time, even when I’m actually just sleeping through the day (ok, kidding!)
Tools To Help You Stay 24x7x365 on Social Media Without Losing Sleep
Buffer is by far the smartest and easiest way to schedule and publish post across all social platforms. It lets you queue all the content according to the best time of engagement analyzed from your social accounts. It also lets you set a custom time for posting. You can easily schedule all your social activity for 2-3 days on the platform and not worry about having an internet condition and a device around you all the time! Buffer also offers analytics about the engagement and reach of each of your social posts.
A popular tool for social media management for individuals and businesses to execute marketing campaigns across multiple social networks is Hootsuite. It has become a must-have tool for managing social media, tracking conversations and measuring results via web or mobile devices. It allows easy integration of social accounts, Google Analytics, Facebook insights and scheduling of posts.
