Social Media Management Tools
How many social media management tools are out there - goodness me it must be thousands! We've included some we use, and others because they are free to get started so you can get some traction without having to spend too much money.
However, nothing is really free, so as soon as you need to add in more functions and click on the enticing little button only to find out that you've entered the paid zone then do have a look around and do some price comparisons.
Our advice is to be very clear about what features you are looking for and what you want to achieve.
Remember The Native Social Media Platforms
The main platforms themselves (which is what we mean by native) often have content scheduling - Twitter and Facebook Pages for instance. They also have excellent metrics - Twitter has analytics and Facebook has Insights.
If you're starting out you don't want to be on every single social media platform going and it's best to start out on the one that is right for you and get comfortable with it before you start on anywhere else.
If you are hiring a social media strategist or manager, they will advise you and do the posting, metrics and possibly even the engagement for you as well.
