Use Hootsuite, Stress Less
With so many social networks online and only 24 hours in a day, managing your social media presence can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, there is one social media management solution that is great for helping you get your message out to the rest of the world.
Hootsuite allows you to use their basic features free of charge.However, their premium offerings are well worth the price. For less than $10 USD per month, you can take advantage of Hootsuite Pro to begin maximizing your social media presence and free yourself from updating your social profiles individually.

Schedule Social Media Updates
One of Hootsuite’s most powerful features is its ability to schedule outgoing messages. Their scheduling feature allows users to prepare messages in advance and send them out at specific times. By signing up for Hootsuite Pro, users gain access to the bulk scheduler which allows 50 tweets to be scheduled at one time using a CSV file. This allows you to take full control of the efficiency and effectiveness of your social media marketing.
Formatting your CSV file can be challenging at first. You need to have it formatted exactly the way Hootsuite specifies. I spent a few hours getting this set up properly with Microsoft Excel, but once you get it right you will have armed yourself with a valuable marketing tool.
Hootsuite Pro also offers Google Analytics integration which is perfect for tracking your social media to web conversions.
