Well, are you failing at managing your social content and that of other brands you manage? If you’re like many of us who manage several profiles, you probably spend hours curating, organizing, hashtagging, and scheduling content for each profile almost daily. And that doesn’t even include thanking and recognizing all your best engagers with Follow Friday greetings.
Let me introduce you to a solution that I use and that will take all of the burden away. You’ll have the ability to focus on the core aspects of your business, while still having plenty of time to engage and deepen relationships formed through your various social media activities.
Back in late 2011, I wrote about the social content management system developed by Social Resolve. Company founder and friend, Robert Caruso, sat down with me to answer my questions about why all businesses, but especially small businesses, should get involved in social media. At the time, I had just begun to use the Bundle Post tool and loved it so much, I felt compelled to write about it. It literally transformed my business and revolutionized workflow at All Media Freelance, LLC. Now, the best social media content management tool ever moves on to the next stage of amazing with Bundle Post 2.0.
Why Use Bundle Post for Social Media Management?
Bundle Post allows you to automate social media content management tasks, eliminating the time sucking process involved in finding appropriate content, then organizing, scheduling, and hashtagging it. It can take hours upon hours searching out content that fits your brand, or that of your clients. Then you’ve got to schedule each tweet or post that you craft from those hours of discovery one by one. What about hashtags? You need to take the time to research the best hashtags for the content and add them in. Next, you’ve got to organize each post so that there’s not too much in one topic area, or from one source, going out at once.
Wow! I’m exhausted just listing all those tasks! Bundle Post does all of that for you. That way you have more time to engage face-to-face with followers and fans. And it frees you up to tend to other key aspects of business, or get a mani-pedi and a facial. Gotta keep up your sparkle.
Bundle Post 2.0 – I’ve Got a Crush on You
Introducing Bundle Post 2.0 – Bundle Post, will you marry me? Here’s why I love it so much. As always, you can schedule at least 5 days of meaningful content posts for your various social media channels and profiles in less than 30 minutes. The beautiful new interface makes it easier to use and more intuitive for even the most tech-challenged user. The customer service and other teams are readily accessible and incredibly helpful. Folks, these people just don’t quit.
Here’s how it works…the Bundle Post (BP) solution includes six key areas that don’t require you to connect directly to any social networks or readers:
Feed Channels – Keep all your curated content in one place. You set up the RSS feeds and Google Alerts you want and BP authomatically ingests new content four times a day, saving each bit of content as a social media post that you can view, edit, or delete on the spot.
Schedules – Create schedules for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Fan pages for every profile you manage.
My Content – Create content folders for each profile that contain posts from your blog, promotional content for the profiles you manage, inspiring quotes. Really, these hold just about anything meant to directly promote you or the brands you manage.
Hashtags – Create and store hashtags for each profile or brand you manage. Using the hashtags in these folders, you can automatically apply hashtags to an entire content export file in one second flat.
Export – Export the content for a particular client or brand in a CSV file for uploading into Hootsuite scheduler.
Follow Friday – Create and store pre-made Follow Friday recommendation tweets for each client or brand in folders. You can then export and schedule them on Thursday to go out steadily on Friday. What once took me (literally) hours, now takes me 5 minutes.
Using the Bundle Post solution has saved me incredible amounts of time searching, editing, hashtagging, and scheduling content. So much so, that I estimate a savings of over $9,000 annually. And that’s probably a conservative estimate because it doesn’t include the monetary gains received because I had time to put focused effort into new client acquisition and other critical business areas.
I encourage you to try it and see what I mean. You can register for the 30-day free trial without giving a credit card number or any financial information at all. When you do, come back here and let me know what you think.
Please understand that I received no compensation of any form for this post. I’ve written it because I truly believe in Bundle Post and wanted to share my enthusiasm again, since they’ve rolled out 2.0 and it rocks my world #likeaboss.
