Management of multiple social media accounts can be a huge drain on your time and resources. Never believe anyone who says social media is free! It ain’t! In this post I will review a Twitter Analytics and scheduling tool called Crowdbooster – no affiliate relationship is involved here so you get nothing but the facts without a pitch. And seeing as this is social – please share with the Tweet, Like, Share type buttons at the top.
Like most people you are probably feeling a little overwhelmed with the sheer number of social media accounts you need to be active on if you are in business.
You are also more than likely finding that tweeting, updating, sharing, liking, +1ing, In-ing (Ha!), pinning, stumbling, tumbling, checking in, digging and every other possible permutation is WEARING you out!
I have written previously about Twitter techniques to engage – this post is about how to cut down on the amount of time spent managing your social media accounts.
Say hello to the wonderful world of social automation – and before you get up on to your high horse – yes, I can hear the chorus already:
Social is all about the conversation, it is about being in the “now”, it is in real-time…
I agree, 100%!
And you should never automate conversations in social media, or thank yous, or any other more personalised interactions. Ideally you should check into social media frequently to reply to people… in real time.
However, there are certain aspects of social media which should be automated.
Some of the more mechanical tasks associated with managing your social media can take hours every day if you do these manually.
So, tools to assist with reducing the amount of time you have to spend on social media are a necessity.
