Schedule Social Media Posts with Hootsuite

Schedule Social Media Posts with Hootsuite

Hootsuite has been out for some time now but for those of you who don’t know much about this application the basic idea is that you can schedule social media posts. I wanted to talk about how you can use this and share this with my readers.

I originally setup Hootsuite to connect with Facebook and easily post between a few groups I was in and schedule posts on Facebook throughout my week to keep my friends engaged with me and build discussion among the people that I know.

Let’s give an example of how Hootsuite can be used to Schedule Social Media Posts, let’s say I have a LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook account. I can link all of these accounts to Hootsuite, let’s say it’s 1pm as of the current day. I can schedule a post that says “Check out my Hootsuite overview here” with a link to this post and schedule this post to be submitted to all three of these social media accounts at 2pm. I could then setup various posts on specific days or times throughout the next week. This is an awesome way to keep your friends actively commenting and seeing what you decide to share while you are off doing other things during the day.
