If you’re going to write all those posts, tweets, and statuses, then you might as well share them with all your social media platforms. Don’t worry, you won’t have to spend all day posting. Hootsuite allows you to not only post to multiple platforms like Facebook and Twitter at the same time; it also allows you to schedule them months in advance.
We “batch” almost all of work and especially our marketing. My team writes weeks’ worth of tweets in one sit-down, I approve them, and then they are posted to Hootsuite. This makes us look consistent while saving a ton of time.
