The other month when I went on vacation, I used social media schedulers to keep things rolling while I did other things. Today, I’d like to talk about the different ones I use. I don’t make much money with my sites, just enough to pay for the domain name every year with just a smidge extra, so I try to use the free versions.
Social media sites have limits on how often you can post per day. I’m not nearly close to the upper limits even using schedulers. I average 2-3 posts per day at most.
The first scheduler I use is Postfity. I can schedule up to 10 posts in advance with the free version. That works for now. For a while, I did use the paid version because it is substantially less expensive than the other schedulers but I went back to the free version since I really don’t make any money on my blog. But, if you are interested in the paid version. Postfity is offering a coupon for 15% off its paid product with the code “summer.” Postfity is also less complicated to use than Hootsuite which is a great thing for beginners, like me.
The second scheduler I use is Buffer. Buffer is pretty similar to Postfity. The free version also lets me schedule 10 posts ahead of time. So with these two schedulers, I have 20 days, one post a day all set.
Hootsuite is the most expensive and most comprehensive scheduler I use. With the free version, I can schedule 30 posts in advance, which is perfect for one post a day for the entire month.
So using these three schedulers, I was able to keep up with my social media postings while still enjoying time with my family. Of course, I’ve fallen behind since then, but I try!
