According to We Are Social “Nearly one-third of the world’s population now uses social media."
That’s why if you want to build up a relationship with your customers and prospects, you need to be on social media too.
But how do you post at lots of different times of the day from your different chosen social media platforms when you’re trying to run your small business?
You know you should be doing it, but you have 1001 other things you need to be doing too.
Use a social media scheduling tool like Hootsuite, Edgar or Buffer.
These tools allow you to schedule your social media posts well in advance, so instead of sending out a tweet 4 times a day, you can add it to the schedule and it will be sent out when you specify.
You can schedule your posts weeks in advance.
Very useful if you are busy running your small business!
Don’t worry as you can add in your images, videos and links as usual.
Social media scheduling tools like Hootsuite, Edgar and Buffer are great time savers. Instead of dropping in and out of your different social media accounts at various times of the day, which is distracting and often just not possible, you can devote a set time to scheduling your posts all in one go, when it suits you.
It’s a great feeling when you’ve scheduled a few weeks’ worth of posts and you know you can then get on with running your small business!
If you’re not using a social media scheduling tool yet, my advice would be to take a look at each one to see what works best for you.
