One of the most common comments we hear from small business owners is “I just don’t have TIME to do social media…but I know we need to do it!” Of course you COULD hire Cherry Pie Social to do it for you. (Had to add that in.)
Here at Cherry Pie, we have been using Hootsuite for some time but are now transitioning to Buffer. This is not a paid-endorsement for Buffer. We decided to change because of the automatic image reveal feature. WildBoy blog says “If you’re comparing HootSuite to Buffer, it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison. It’s like comparing an apple to a basket full of apples, oranges, grapes, kiwis, starfruit, bananas, mangos and that weird fruit your mom made you eat and said you couldn’t have ice cream if you didn’t eat clean your plate (aka, sadness fruit).”
Here are some time-saving tips we’ve gathered up for you from our awesome group of friends.
Marc Rollins — Facebook has where you can schedule post. So I do all of my normal posts for the week on Mondays
Kellie L. Craft — Hootsuite. You can schedule a multitude of days to many different platforms. In just a few minutes, I have a week of posts done. Love it!
Jessica Walker — Def schedule the posts! Also, pre plan content for several days, weeks, months in advance!
Jason Angus — I use Buffer to schedule updates.
Angie Doell — Hootsuite. We schedule about 10 days out.
Jodi Sensenig — Scheduling my posts through Hootsuite.
