People often ask me what are the 3rd party tools that I like to use when it comes to Social Media. While I have tried and will continue to try many, there is really only one that I use on a consistent basis: hootsuite.
While I really do prefer to use Social Networks on their site (especially Facebook), hootsuite is a great tool for many reasons. While there are many uses for hootsuite, here is how I use the tool:
- Scheduling future posts on multiple platforms at the same time
- Social Analytics reporting
- Monitoring multiple network simultaneously
One of the things that I like most about hootsuite is that it really is easy to use for beginners while also providing high level features for pro users as well. I also highly recommend paying the extra $6/month for the Pro Account if you're an active social media user.
I would love to hear about your experience with hootsuite or other 3rd Party Social Media tools that work well for you.
