Social Media Intern Diaries: The Best Social Media Tools
We are all busy, and finding time to post content on your social media platforms consistently can be challenging. But, keeping up with your social media marketing plan is the best way to build engagement over time.
For the past several months I have been using various apps that have assisted me in keeping consistent in posting on my social media platforms.

Here are the Best Resources & Social Media Tools:


Post Planner makes it easy for you to find and share amazing, top performing content consistently for Facebook. You can schedule and share the best content available, which in turn gives you the best engagement.


With Later you can upload, schedule, and manage your Instagram posts from your computer or mobile devices. What I enjoy most about Latergramme is it sends alerts when my posts are ready for posting on Instagram on the day and time I’ve scheduled (you can also share your Instagram posts to Twitter and Facebook via your Instagram app).


There are many apps out there, but for Pinterest scheduling you have to search a little harder. I have found the following tools you can use to get started as soon as possible.
Another free option, Viraltag is a social dashboard tool that lets you schedule and post images to up to three social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest. The Pinterest scheduling tool is especially great, because you can select the specific board you want, add a description and a source, and then set the time and interval for posting.
Everypost (iPhone & Android App)
I found that Everypost is one of the few choices out there that offers free Pinterest scheduling for as many pins as really want. It comes only in the form of a mobile app. It’s a complete, all-in-one social media managing app. It also works with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and Tumblr. You can download Everypost for free for iPhone and Android.


Google+ is not a very popular social media platform, however, if you do use it, the best app for scheduling Google+ posts is Buffer. There are many great apps out there for scheduling Google+ content, however, Buffer is FREE. No need to pay for other apps, especially if Google+ is not a Social Media platform you regularly use.


Postfity lets you set post directly on multiple social accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn at the same time using the “post now” option.
Remember, these social media tools may not work for everyone. You have to find what works best for you and your business. Additionally, like anything else, it is trial and error. If one doesn’t work well for you then try something else. It is all about what works best to help YOU gain the most engagement.
Finally, you should always have a schedule. Scheduling your posts allows you to have to be flexible and allows you the opportunity to create real-time content. By scheduling your posts you will be posting frequently, consistency, and you’ll be able to maximize engagement at all times.
