Have you ever heard of Hoot Suite? No, unfortunately it has nothing to do with owls but, positively, it everything to do with social media. In fact it is such an easy FREE tool I use that saves me hours of time sitting in front of social network sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. It is one of the most valuable and time saving, not to mention FREE tools out there on the internet to keep you in link with all things social media.
I use Hootsuite.com once a week to upload all the free content that I want people to read whether it be blog posts, twitter messages, Facebook posts or LinkedIn feeds. It even has a cool function where you can schedule out these posts for different days and different times of the week- All In Advance!
Think about how many new followers or ads you get on Facebook or twitter per day.
Those people may be new and have not seen your post of your latest show reel or acting class you just put up 3 weeks ago.
You might think that all your contacts have seen it already from the 1 post, but people glance over content all the time and perhaps miss the real nuggets of GOLD content in the mine.
It really is quite simple and effective to keep your followers and fans up with the latest content from your business or performing life that you have.
AND it can be all done in less than 10 minutes.
Firstly you need to create a sign in address and password-Standard.
Then you need to sync your social media accounts with the Hootsuite.com dashboard- Easy.
Then you can get busy-FUN!
Select which social network you want to bulletin on.
Chose One Message for one OR One message for ALL.
Next, schedule when you wish it to go out- perhaps you have a class at 6pm Thursday so you know you won’t be at your computer to send a message. Simply schedule one for that day and time, and “Wamo” hit the send button and you have all your media scheduled and ready to go out, even when you’re busy doing something else.
Hootsuite.com also allows you to send immediate posts.
BONUS: Always put a link back to your website in your message so people will come to your main ‘hub’ of information about you and your biz.
Follow up and comment on people’s messages and engage with your audience and followers.
This is the most crucial step to using Hootsuite.com and ANY social media. Connect, reply and engage.
There you have it. As easy as 1,2, 3.
Of course there’s a lot more you can do with Hootsuite.com as they offer premium packages for your needs.
I suppose they called it Hootsuite so you can still get your work done, even while you’re sleeping.
For your quick look go to Hootsuite.Com.
