Social Media Management

As an organization, company, or an individual who takes pride in their social media accounts, it’s a great idea to look into new social media management tools.

This week, I have researched and learned a lot about the social media management tool, Hootsuite!

Hootsuite can help you schedule posts, monitor your social media accounts, receive analytics and much more!

They have many different plans that you can choose including: professional for $19 a month, team for $99 a month, and enterprises (contact for pricing).

The professional plan includes 10 social profiles and one user with basic features such as bulk scheduling, real-time analytics, social sweepstakes and unlimited RSS integrations.

The team plan includes 20 social profiles and three users with features such as custom analytics reports, team assignments, six contest templates, a custom branded URL and a social media certification.

Lastly, the enterprise plan gives you custom solutions. You can accelerate the results of your social media strategy by giving teams the platform, advice, personalized training and advanced analytics needed to be effective.

Hootsuite has over 16 million users in over 175 countries. You can connect and grow your online reputation from over 35 popular social media networks including Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and so many more.

The few limitations it has is for small businesses and individuals. Ian Anderson Gray stated “although Hootsuite has a free option, and the pro option isn’t exactly expensive, there are some very expensive parts to Hootsuite which you may need.”

I find that Hootsuite and other social media management tools are very important to public relation practitioners and digital media coordinators. I highly recommend Hootsuite as a tool for larger businesses that can afford the tool, but would refer to a free version to smaller businesses and individuals who cannot afford Hootsuite, or do not care to have a large social media presence (all businesses should want to have a large presence on social media, but, that’s for another blog, another time).

All information about the social media management tool came from Hootsuite.com.

    Google + and Friends Plus me just got better, now they have Instagram and auto posting is awesome on the free account side. I might actually start paying for the service.
