We have talked a lot about “Building Your Brand” through social media.  Today I’m recommending a tool to help you do that smartly, efficiently, and without a headache.  That tool is HootSuite.

If you have a small business and you are marketing yourself, then your browser probably looked similar to mine…about 10 tabs open for all your social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Flickr, Wanelo, Google+, etc).  Well…my browser used to look like that until a friend told me about HootSuite.  Initially I thought you had to pay for it, so I didn’t check into it.  

But then, I got desperate…so off to the website I went and I found out that you can add up to 5 social media streams for FREE.  After than you must pay for it.  Now in ONE window I can see my FaceBook personal page, Kater’s Acres on FaceBook, Kater’s Acres Twitter, and personal Twitter page…not to mention being welcomed by that CUTE little owl.

You can organize many of your social streams and write ONE post to post to all social media at one time.  What a blessing…no more copy & paste into each media outlet.  Whew!  What a relief.  

So here’s your job before next week.  Go to HootSuite and sign up for free.  Add your social networks and join us next week for an in-depth tutorial on how to use HootSuite and use it to your advantage.
