Happy new week everyone. Here are 3 quick tips about scheduling social media posts or tidying up your Twitter feeds. Marketing can eat into your day, so I am sharing some great tools to help you schedule in some of the posts to save time. I don’t agree with all posts being scheduled, as the idea of social media, is to be social! Interaction is the main way to keep and grow your Twitter/ Facebook accounts etc.
- SocialOomph: This a is a scheduling app. It has free and paid options. You can run a free trial to see if it is the app for you. You can schedule tweets, Facebook posts and blog posts, add images and links.
- Hootsuite: Hootsuite is a bit clunky for me, but it is a great place to start when you are looking for content to retweet on Twitter or you have your own information to schedule. Because this app updates so often with new news items, it can be slow. The upside is that there is a wealth of information to choose from and it is very easy to use.
- Manageflitter: This is a good app for unfollowing anyone who doesn’t follow you back. There have been recent changes, so unless you pay for the basic service, you can only have about 30 unfollows a day. For their basic package, you can unfollow as many as you like.

I agree, hootsuite is a little clunky! Have you tried Sprout social?
I learned about scheduling my twitter posts ahead and that sure has helped me. It is important to be personal, too. Another great post.
Scheduling can save so much time, but keeping the social media feeds fresh is just as important. It means updating the scheduled posts fairly often, but is worth the time and effort involved. Thanks for joining Gus today!
Thanks, Lizzie! 🙂
You’re welcome Natalie!
I prefer Buffer, my brain can cope with this one!
Lol! I haven’t tried Buffer, but if it works for you that’s great. I’ll take a look at that too. Thanks for the top tip.
Thanks for the tips, Lizzie. They look very useful. Off to check them out.
Hi paula. You’re so welcome. Someone just posted about Buffer too, so it might be worth looking into that app as well to see which one suits you the best.
