Try as much as you can, but avoiding social media isn’t something you can do and it isn’t smart to try. It’s smarter to try and manage social media more efficiently because that’s how you actually get anything out of it. There is a myriad of tools available to help you manage multiple social media accounts; some simple, some complex, some that support an army of these networks, while others that cater only to the more popular ones. Postify is one such service that lets you schedule posts to Twitter and Facebook for free. You can schedule up to ten posts and it supports multiple Twitter accounts in addition to letting you manage Facebook pages.
What you will appreciate about Postify right off the bat is its clean interface. Post scheduling is of course, just one of the basic features this service offers. If you upgrade it will suggest ideas for posts and give you more scheduling and sharing options. Start off by connecting your Facebook account. If you don’t want to manage Facebook pages, you can skip giving the service access to it.
Once you’ve connected account, start composing an update. Postify will let you compose an update and share it to all connected accounts. It has however, made it exceptionally simple to turn off an account so you can compose and schedule posts for Facebook and Twitter separately. You can attach images to your post as well as add links.
Once you’ve composed the post, click the Schedule button to select a date and time for posting. Other posting options available include an option to add a post to the queue which publishes posts five minutes apart. All scheduled posts can be ‘multiplied’. This allows you to publish the same update to your accounts at regular intervals and is useful if you’re promoting something for an extended period such as a giveaway that users can participate in over the course of two weeks.
Last but not least, the service gives you the following overview of your scheduled posts. It has filters in case you decide to connect more than one Twitter account connected to the service.
As far as scheduling social media scheduling services go, Postify is a good tool to use for anyone with basic small-scale needs. The Multiply feature is definitely something that could benefit small scale pages and businesses alike. The ten post limit is something that might be a problem but it’s not a per-day limit but rather a queue limit so it’s workable. Give it a try and let us know how you liked it.
