5 Tools You Can Use to Increase Your Social Media Productivity


Facebook has its own built-in scheduling tool for Facebook Business Pages. Type your post in the status update area, then click the little clock icon and pick the month and the day you want your post to appear.

HootSuite is a social media monitoring platform that you can use to follow updates and share content with your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ accounts. To schedule a post, type it in the composition area, select the accounts you want to post to, and then set your time and date in the calendar.

Buffer is another media platform that you can use to schedule posts across multiple networks, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+. Type in your post, choose the accounts you want to use, and pick your day and time.

Social Campaigns

If you are using Social Campaigns to create and share an offer with your Facebook fans, you can schedule posts about that offer to be published throughout the duration of your campaign with the Social Posts tool. It generates suggested content for you with text and graphics or stock art. You can use what’s suggested or edit the content and upload your own images. You can also change the dates and times for each post, and use the calendar tool to add or remove posts.

With MarketMeSuite, you can also post and follow activity from your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts, similar to the tools you’ll find in HootSuite and Buffer.

MarketMeSuite also offers another timesaver for you — the Smart Inbox. Select the type of activity notifications you want from each network and access them all in one place. For example, if you want to make sure you respond to people who engage with your Twitter posts or talk to or about you, set up a search for that activity. Then access all of those notifications in your Smart Inbox so you can keep track of customer interaction and respond quickly.
