I'm looking for a simple tool to manage the posting schedule of different social media accounts. I know there are lots of options (Hootsuite, Buffer, etc.), but wanted to get feedback from the PH community on what they're using and why.
- Davis Baer made this productI might be a little biased, but OneUp is a great Meet Edgar alternative that works with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google Plus - at a fraction of the price. With OneUp, you can easily schedule evergreen posts to be recycled for a specific number of times, at set intervals. For example, if you want to share your latest blog post once a month for the next 3 months, you can do that in about 10 seconds. Like OneUp, MeetEdgar allows you to recycle your evergreen posts, but it requires that you upload posts to a queue. The more content you add to your queue, the less frequently your posts will resurface. Depending on what you're looking for, MeetEdgar could be a great solution. However, many people just want their posts to be recycled at a set interval, like "once a month for the next 3 months", without having to do the mental calendar math: "If I have 56 posts in my queue and I add my blog post, how often will it be republished if I am sharing 3 posts a day, but adding 2-5 more each week?"The tool allows you to schedule and automatically repeat your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. You can schedule images with its Chrome extension.

- I use Buffer because it is extremely simple! It's also a great tool for users getting into social media side of things.After using other free/paid services extensively (Hootsuite [HS] etc) for years, Buffer adds the most value and flexibility. Once posts are scheduled, it's easy (and visual) to rearrange and reschedule them and the scheduling parameters are easily customizable and user-friendly. I was one of the Hootsuite users from around the time it launched, but it felt much more like a tool than a user-cantered solution like Buffer is as HS's sheer amount of features made it hard to concentrate and focus on the main task you wanted to accomplish. If you are looking for a solution for just scheduling, Buffer is the best. If you also are looking for one that will help with monitoring as well, that's a different question. Mention + Buffer are a good pairing that takes care of a both monitoring and scheduling. Hope this helps.I think Hootsuite and Buffer are both solid products, but I opt for Buffer just because it's super simple and you can get a lot of value out of the free plan. It depends on what features you need - but I would check out Buffer first to see if it suits your needs.
- Hootsuite is a social media management tool for automated post scheduling and monitoring the key performance metrics. Hootsuite enables us to schedule contents from unlimited RSS into major social media such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. The one thing I love about Hootsuite is it has a free plan which gives us power to manage up to 3 profiles, limited post scheduling of up to 30 posts per month and 1 admin user. But the paid plans offer more which might be suitable for bigger team or organization. The analytics it provides also a nice thing to start with data analysis, and some other app integrations are powerful. This tools is the very first tool I use to manage my social media profiles automatically, both for personal and business use. Now I'm still using Hootsuite at a company where I work as a Content Manager.While their pricing for enterprise is outrageous, it's a pretty robust, easy to use scheduler. But it may be even better at monitoring. If you're looking to track mentions and react to online comments, this is a good option. I'd recommend this to small teams who want to monitor and schedule a few things. If social media is a super important channel vs. a branding tool--meaning you need tons of automated scheduling--Buffer or Hey Edgar or something may be better to explore.
- SocialBu offers simple social media scheduling for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (at the moment). It has features like the ability to reply to the posts and messagees of the followers/fans. You also can monitor twitter keywords. One powerful feature is SocialBu's automations. You can simply create 'rules' to automate your social media (for example: create posts from rss, auto reply, webhooks, email and so on). The pricing is also simple and starts at $4.99. (My recommendation is probably biased because I built SocialBu)
- Hootsuite is the best but buffer is simpler, especially for scheduling social media posts.One great thing about the buffer that it keeps a track record of your traffic for the particular content which you have scheduled it on the buffer. In AeroLeads.com we do promote our blog with buffer and I found it as a great and simple tool for social media scheduler.
- Sendible makes it easy to engage with your audience, monitor your brand and track results from one dashboard.
- SocialPilot is a simple (in terms of ease-of-use) social media management tool that can help you manage the posting schedule of up to 200 social accounts. It helps you schedule posts across 10 social networks - including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Google My Business. A dynamic content calendar enables you to visualize your scheduled posts for multiple accounts (you can group accounts and filter the calendar to focus on certain schedules). In case you wish to re-schedule a post just drag and drop within the calendar. Finding relevant content to post daily becomes easier with 'content curation'. You can also see which influencers shared that content (and how they shared it). If you have the content plan ready, SocialPilot helps you schedule all those posts (image & text posts) in bulk - by uploading a single file. With these (and more features) SocialPilot helps you save time and effort while also ensuring you are well within your budget.
- It has all the essential features a social media management tool should have plus unique ones – auto posting with smart queues, and social inbox. Also provides RSS feeds integration and auto posting, suggested content plus curation, influencer discovery, and custom analytics reports.
- I'm super lazy and love their suggestions and templates. I mean...uh....I like to save time on my social media scheduling and this helps. Yea, that makes me sound more professional.... But seriously, it's pretty darn good.
