Scheduling Social Media with Apps

As part of an online marketing series, the SWCODA in Durango, Colorado put on a series of several marketing breakout sessions. I was invited to speak about how to get started using a third-party social media scheduling app to improve your social media strategy.

What is a social media scheduling app?

A third party application where you can plan your social media content and schedule it to be posted (for you) at a pre-determined time. This is a platform that is separate from the native platforms such as Facebook or Instagram.

Why use a social media scheduling app?

  • Schedule at peak times or when you are unavailable
  • Improve your schedule consistency so you stay in the feeds
  • Better quality control of your content calendar so you reach the right people

What can you do with a social media scheduling app?

  • Plan ahead for holidays and events
  • Schedule in bulk across multiple platforms
  • Collaborate with others
  • Analyze more metrics
