Many companies and webmasters are using social media to reach out to and engage their audience. Some outsource their efforts, and some make in-house dedicated teams for managing all social media accounts. There are some companies and webmasters that opt to update their status in real time, and then there are those who like to automate.

 

Automating social media is a great way to ensure that you’re remaining active without needing to have a constant physical presence on all of your sites. If you are interested in automation tools then you should check out these 5 best social media automation tools out there:

 

Hootsuite

Hootsuite has an easy-to-use dashboard that allows you to maintain and manage multiple social media accounts in one place. You can schedule your social media postings for any of the accounts, and you can choose the exact day and time that they’re sent.

Hootsuite will also show you the feed and activity for all of your social media accounts. This means that you actually don’t have to ever visit your social media pages to see what’s happening - which is quite handy when you have to maintain dozens of social media profiles .

 

Sprout Social

Sprout Social is another great social media automation tool to use. Like Hootsuite, you can add multiple social media accounts and manage and automate messaging for each one.

The Sprout Social dashboard is very easy to use and provides you with a great deal of analytics. You can see information on the demographics of those who follow you on social media and learn about the reach of your postings.

 

Seesmic

Seesmic is an upgrade to Ping. Many companies also use Seesmic to automate their social media activity. This easy-to-use platform allows users to schedule their posts among multiple social media accounts.

You can add thumbnails for links that you’re posting, and you even have the cool ability to post directly from your iPhone, iPad or any Android device.

 

TwitterFeed

Although the name includes only Twitter, TwitterFeed can help you generate content to other social networks too. With TwitterFeed, your blog posts are directly sent out to your audience so there’s no need for you to do it on your own.

This enables you to focus on creating the blog content, but not having to worry about marketing it out to your followers.

 

SocialOomph

SocialOomph is a social media management tool that allows users to automate messages. The interface is very plain, but it’s easy to use. Plus, it has both a free and paid-for version, so you can automate your social networks without having to spend some of your marketing budget.

Automation of your social media accounts can make your workload much easier. If you want to automate your social media, it’s a good idea to use one of these five automation tools to help you get the most out of your automation efforts. Each one provides their own unique offering, but they all will help you maintain your social presence with ease.
