Sprout Social now has an answer to Buffer. Introducing Sprout Queue… the easy way to queue your social media content for future delivery and automatically publish at the perfect time.
It's no secret that I'm a fan of Sprout Social. But for a while I've found myself flirting with Buffer App – as an easy, one click way to add posts to my social media channels and automatically queue them to post at an optimum time. It's kind of like having a social media assistant who spreads out your posts, instead of sending 14 one day and none for the rest of the week.
I'm a fan of plans with simple roll-out methods.
Imagine how many kick-ass business plans there are out there – gathering dust on bottom shelves and clogging hard drives with their goodness. You may even know one yourself… six-figure sales projections, hundreds of new leads, epic volumes of life changing content, all within the next 90 days.
When it comes to Social Media Strategy, I advise my clients to consider easy-to-use roll-out methods. Typically, they should:
- require less than an hour a day,
- be planned in advance; and
- deliver good quality advice and content in line with your core business promise.
Get Social by Going Mobile and Planning Ahead
In order to stick to your Social Media strategy, I have three simple rules.
- Use a Social Media management platform (I <3 SproutSocial),
- Get clear on your Code (see my article ‘A Code to Live & Blog by’); and
- Get smart with your time.
The fastest way to plan your content in advance, is by using a scheduler service. (Available in the SproutSocial Pro plan)
Sprout have also recently launched Sprout Queue, a service which automatically releases your posts at optimal times. Go with a Pro plan and Sprout will actually analyse your connections and choose the best time for broadcast depending on your followers!
It's yet another tool designed at making your life even easier – all you have to do is come up with the content and hit Queue.
