Use HootSuite to Manage Your Social Media

Do you use social media a lot – but find yourself posting to different social media sites on a regular basis? You may add an event announcement on your organization’s Facebook and LinkedIn pages and then send a Tweet about it.

Logging into multiple social media platforms daily takes time… and organization!

Hootsuitewww.HootSuite.com is the leading social media dashboard to not only manage, but to measure the results of your online marketing campaigns.

Simply put, it is a system for any size of organization to establish and manage multiple social networks with a single web-based tool. It integrates with key social network sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  It even works with the new Google+ Pages.

When you log into your HootSuite platform, you can post to multiple social media sites at one time! If you want to add a post to Facebook and Twitter — it can be done in one step.

You can try HootSuite before subscribing to see if it is right for you. Go to www.hootsuite.com and set up your account for free. The Pro level offers more functionality, but the free version has all you need to get started.

Once you spend less than five minutes setting up your account, you can start posting live, or pre-schedule posts to one or more of your social media sites.

HootSuite not only lets you add posts easily, but generates reports and provides analytics so that you can see how your promotional efforts are paying off. For example, for Facebook, you can:

  • Monitor and measure your fans, likes, comments and page activity.
  • Drill down into your fans based on demographic, region and post source.
  • Optimize your messaging with per post insights, including reach, and engaged users “talking about this”.
