Social Media can be very time consuming if you do not plan ahead. Planning captions and media on the spot can lead to poor engagement, and posts that do not connect to your business. Here are a couple of apps that will help you plan your social media.
1. Hootsuite is a boutique agency’s dream since they offer a pretty extensive free version.
If you are a blogger, the free version might fit all of your needs. It does not handle Pinterest. There is a desktop version, which makes it easier if you are planning for multiple social media platforms.
2. Facebook Scheduler
It comes with Facebook and is really great. There are so much free analytics. It’s almost like Facebook wants you to only use their scheduler. Too bad it doesn’t integrate with Instagram.
Step up your Pinterest game with Tailwind. You can also use it for Instagram. There is a desktop version.
It can get very pricey for agencies.
This one comes with hashtag suggestions for Instagram, which is cool, but you still need to check to see if the hashtags are strong. The free version allows you to plan and organize your ig, but you still have to manually post.
It can get pricey if you have more than 1 handle.
This one is very organized, and is cheaper than Preview, if you have more than 1 account to manage. It organizes the hashtags pretty well.
Here’s a tip:
If you are on a budget, you can download several free apps and use them for your different accounts.
