Content Tools You’ll Want to Use
No matter who we are or what we do, content is part of our everyday lives. We watch it, we read it, we hear it – content is everywhere. Content is available 24/7/365 through every search engine and social media platform out there. Fortunately, tools are also everywhere to help people filter, organize and share content. These are three content tools you’ll want to use.
HootSuite allows its users to manage their most popular social platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and G+, all in one place. People find it’s easy and efficient to post in real-time or to schedule posts for different times of the day when they use this tool. HootSuite also offers an effective scheduling option known as AutoSchedule, which lets the user “automatically queue messages for optimal times from within the dashboard.” Many businesses of all sizes choose Hootsuite as their tool of choice to manage their content because of its effectiveness and reliability for their social media management needs.
2) Buffer App
Many people like using Buffer App to schedule and post content throughout the day. A free version exists, but a $10/month subscription seems rather affordable when taking the tool’s capabilities into consideration. The paid subscription is ideal for a business or social media manager who manages multiple accounts. Like Hootsuite, the tool posts content a subscriber sets up for Twitter, Facebook and/or LinkedIn accounts – up to 12 accounts for the $10/month subscription. Buffer App offers additional online functionality since a user can install it as an extension on Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. As well, the tool ties in with content curation platforms such as Scoop.it.
Bloggers and publishers may be interested in a content tool known as dlvr.it. This tool lets publishers automatically distribute their own content to social networks including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and G+. It works by monitoring the bloggers’ RSS feeds at certain time intervals and then re-posts anything new. There are no scheduling capabilities, however, so the user lacks control over the posting times.
Are these content tools you’ll want to use – or maybe already do? I’d love to hear your thoughts, as well as suggestions for any others you prefer.
