Top 5 Blogging Tools for Scheduling Social Media Updates

BoardBooster – This is a great tool for those who are keen on using pinterest for their social media campaign.  You are able to choose the boards from which you want BoardBooster to pull out of and also where you would like them pinned.  This tool does all the work of loading the board and then you simply go in to set your schedule and pinning limits.  Once you have published your blog you can then use BoardBooster to pin it for you to an appropriate board.  With this tool you have the initial 500 pins at absolutely no cost to you and after that you pay $0.01 for each subsequent pin.

Buffer.com – This tool is absolutely free and with it you can schedule as many as 10 updates daily to  multiple social media sites in one visit.  If you need to schedule in bulk then you can use their paid version since it gives you unlimited scheduling.  If sometimes you find yourself with nothing to post, the tool will pull up updates related to what you generally post that you can use.  You are able to post on to other accounts at the same time as well.

Facebook – Facebook used to be quite a pain to use because you had to choose the time, day, month and year for each post which was very time consuming.  However, things have become much easier since they have revamped their scheduler.  Now you just have to put in your time and date and it’s done. This scheduling tool is absolutely FREE!

Viral Tag – This is another pinterest tool that allows you to schedule your pins.  It comes at a cost of $4.99 every month.  It was previously known as Pinnerly which was a free tool at the time. From my personal experience, Viral Tag is more for smaller blogs if you only have a few pins to schedule. If you are a massive pinner, I recommend Boarbooster for better results.

Hootsuite – This is one of the best known tools for the management of social media posts. There is a free edition and a paid option.  With the free one, only one member of your team can use the package but that is all you need to get your social media efforts going.

    Also, I would like to add SocialPilot.co for scheduling post on multiple social media like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Pinterest and many more. It’s a pretty useful and cost-effective tool as well as it offers high queue limit so you can easily schedule multiple post in advanced with less than 30 minutes. You can easily share your post on Facebook with your own brand name.
