I am currently trialling a new social media tool that enables you to schedule posts across the various different platforms. There are of course several tools such as Hootsuite which already do that, but what I like about this one is it’s attractive and user-friendly visual appeal. You can also schedule posts ready for approval if somebody else needs to see them before they go live.
- It has visually appealing calendar format so you can clearly see what’s been posted for when, and on what platforms
- You can move a post simply by dragging it to another day, so it’s easy to organise
- You can preview a post as it will appear on the platform
- It’s easy to ‘re-use’ a post – handy for those evergreen ones
I have yet to find a tool that does everything I want, all in one place (that would be a miracle!) but this is close, and they are continually developing it. For instance, when it started out you could only schedule a week at a time. You can now do it months ahead!
If you want to give it a go, it’s called ContentCal – you can create a free trial account here http://www.contentcal.io/
