What does that mean? It’s a tool that will help you post your social media ahead of time, so you can schedule it post on several several different platforms and then forget about it and then till the next time. So that’s what a social media management tool is now this one. I’r going to show to you today I’ve been reviewing different ones, so, if you want to see all of them, you’re searching go to my playlist, I have a link below.
I also have a link down there for sprout social. The one I’m showing you today in case this is something you want to dig in deeper too, but I’m just going to do a basic review to tell you what it offers, and maybe this is something that you’re looking for. It’ll, save you a little bit of time, so, let’s dig in my name is Vanessa de boules and I have a blog called affiliate marketing mastery where I teach you how to earn a passive income.
However, I also teach you on my blog different things like email, marketing, social media management platforms and tools, different funnels that you can use so all the different tools you can use to build a business. So, if you’re not doing affiliate marketing, it’s okay, because there’s lots of information that will apply to your business and I post every single day – and I guarantee you most of my articles – will be roughly 10 minutes give or take.
I try not to stay here too long, because I do value your time alright. So let’s look at this real quick now do know. In a nutshell, this one seems a little bit more advanced than the others that I’ve looked at. However, if you here’s my thing, we’re going to look at it and then we’ll talk about the cost and why you would want this one or why you wouldn’t? Okay, I’m not going to lie to you. If you’re brand spanking new, you might think well shoot.
I don’t want that, but there are certain people who are new. That would want this, so the world will talk about that in a minute, but it is kind of like an all-in-one box, the one-stop shop. It not only helps you post your social media posts on different platforms, but it also helps you to analyze a lot of different things like your engaged and who’s who’s. Following you, who’s reading you and all these different analytics, which I think, if you’re really big into the social media platform, this really does a lot.
Now, if you’re just looking for something to schedule your posts and you’re not really into the social aspect or engagement part, then this one probably isn’t for you. So I’m not going to you know. I just want to point that out. So you see some of the different things that are like I said Henery to either. Here is a snapshot of some of the em of posting. What I love about this one, any one of the social media platforms that I show you will have a way for you to put your post into a calendar and it’s very visual.
I love that, but what I love about this is, it will tell you hey, you can take the same post and put it on three or four different places and we’re going to show you where that post is that’s what I love about this I have been Using I basically used a social media planner just to post, because in my marketing I’m more into the search based marketing, where I do more into keywords and things like that.
I’r not really out trying to throw ads and things in front of people as much as I want them to search for me. So there’s two different kinds of marketing, but this I love the one that I’m using is post planner and it just basically I can go into the calendar and put them in, but it doesn’t show me like hey the same post is in three different places. I really like this feature, because you can see it, you can see where you’ve posted them and you can use the same content in different places, so that is a plus in my ice now, the next one.
I wanted you to see here that you in the analytics that you can look at your audience, demographics and that’s really important if you’re on Instagram Facebook, all these different places, where you’re trying to target a certain audience and a lot of times when we’re in business. We target a certain audience and then, as you go along for several months, you might start getting these analytics and you’ll go wow.
I was targeting females 20 to 35 and iPhone that females from 35 to 50 are following me. So you know, then you can rethink your messaging and stuff because for some reason, you’ve attracted a different crowd and that’s going to happen. That’s why just a tip when you’re asked to pick your market go ahead and pick one and don’t overthink it and talk to that audience and then start looking at your analytics and sometimes you might have to tweak things.
I know I spent a lot of time with that and really I it made me really frustrated and when analytics started coming in I’m like oh okay, this is where I need to be talking or targeting all right. So that’s just an example. Here’s another snapshot of your followers, so you can see that 52 % of this one is male, 48 % is female, which is got a 50/50, but you see your Twitter stats, the different things and then your daily engagement.
Remember you want it if you’re really into the social engagement part, you can track that. Did this post really get people to engage, because that’s what I’m looking for and that’s what I want to track and it’s right here sprout social will track that for you. Let’s talk about some of the pros and cons before we do that, though, I want to bring up the pricing because I told you it was pricey, so I want you to see it and again don’t let this turn you off again.
I don’t use it because I’m not into the social engagement part, but you do get a 30-day free trial go in and try it out and and and and play with it now the standard one you can already look at the prices is $ 99 a month In like wow, that’s a lot, but if you are brand new and you’re already rocking it on Instagram or Facebook and you’ve got thousands of followers and you love to engage and you’re just that person then go for it you this plot.
This program would probably be good for you you’re already doing that social media part. Now you just have to find a way to schedule and then add that element. If you are looking to start a business where you might have other people coming in. Maybe your your helping other people, their social media platform, then you would want to look at the professional account or maybe you have a virtual assistant coming in to help.
You know I’ve talked about this before, but not everybody sees every article. So if you follow every single article, I apologize for being repetitive, but you can start a business where you will post for other people and they pay you to do that. And then you would absolutely want one of these bigger memberships so that you can handle everything. But here’s the biggest thing on a standard to professional.
You can only do five social profiles and over unprofessional you can post on ten at a time. So again, if you’re brand new, you probably are not on five platforms right now. You hopefully have learned that you should be focusing on one and really growing it, and once you are in them the move that you know the groove of posting on it all the time you’ve got it going. You’ve got a good following then you add another one.
I know that you see all these gurus out there and they’re all over the place, one. They probably have people helping them and two they weren’t all over the place in the beginning, so just focus on one and again I’ve got postplanner down there. It’s I think it’s like three dollars a month. It’s really cheap, that’s you know and it’ll. You know. I think you can get on three platforms. Three to five.
I can’t remember right off the top of my head, but and you go in and you can post and that helps you get it started if you get really big into the social media things. I definitely would would suggest this one again, I’m not an affiliate on this. I’r just trying to give you some information to help. You make some good decisions in your business all right. So, that’s that, in a nutshell, try out the 30 day free trial go in there and play with it you’re going to learn more from actually doing it than listening to me and that’s why I don’t typically like to do tutorials, because these programs all have tutorials And you can fly around and look in directions that you need to go and not just follow where I think you need to go if that makes sense.
Alright. So let’s look at the pros and the cons. Okay of this is it this preference, some of the pros it’s gorgeous, it’s very pretty, and some people like that, it’s much more attractive than some of the others. It’s very the layout is really nice. It’s very easy to look at easy to work with. So it’s not, maybe we could say it could be social media management for dummies right. It’s very, very easy.
They do have excellent from support tech, support and customer support. So that’s important, especially if you’re new and you’re, not real techie, and it’s headache free you can. You can go on to this platform and figure it out and it’s not real stressful and I know especially if you’re, not real techie, that can be so stressful if you’re trying to figure something out – and you just want to cry sometimes and with the support and The flow and how easy it is to use with this platform you’re getting your money’s worth if that’s important to you now, let’s look at some of the cons.
Of course, I one of the cons definitely would be that it is pricier. I didn’t list that, but it is pricier, but in my opinion you get what you pay for it like anything else. If you pay low prices, you’ll get less services, you pay higher, you get more! So that’s just the way it is, but from here I have done a review of buffer and sprout social is not as advanced as buffer with the scheduler. So you again want to go into each of them and see now you might get on this one and say you know what this is advanced enough.
I don’t need anything more advanced, so don’t need to be on buffer. At that point, you might want to start comparing prices. Facebook, as of this article, has not allowed people to like your content could be fixed by the time this gets out. So Facebook is always changing their rules. So again, there may be other things that they don’t allow as we go forward alright, so that is it for today and don’t forget to hit the sprout social link below again, I’m not an affiliate for that hit the link and go in and try there 30-day Free trial, they do not have a free account, so if you’re looking for free forever, then don’t even take your time to look because you already know going in that.
It’s about a hundred dollars a month. If that just scares you and you you don’t want to do it, then don’t look at it. Go look at some of the other ones that I’ve listed. So I’m going to also put down below my playlists for social media media management tools. There’s other articles in there that you can look at and I also am offering you a guide to earning income online if you’re looking at this and you’re like you know, I want to make money online, I don’t know where to begin.
I have a free guide. You can click that and look at that as well, and that’s all I got for you today. So of course, don’t forget to subscribe, give me a thumbs up and all that crap, but um I put articles out every day and, like I said, keep them. You know in that window of 10 minutes so that and value your time. So you know if you have any questions asked and I can create articles based on your needs.
