Alongside blogging, I have been working on a freelance basis as a social media manager for a few select clients. Social media management is a a lot more time consuming than people often think. Being constantly available as a brand, whether that brand is your own or you are working on behalf of somebody else, can be exhausting. Using a social media management tool such as ContentCal can be the difference between merely coping and succeeding in your field.
If you haven’t used a social media management tool beforehand, it is a platform which helps you to keep everything in one place, enabling you to not only schedule content in advance but, using the social media calendar, you can view the content you are working on, and share this with others. This is invaluable for those working in social media management, who often need to liaise with a brand prior to publishing content.
As well as having the functions that social media managers come to expect from a platform, ContentCal also goes above and beyond, providing not only the bare necessities when it comes to producing and scheduling content, but extras which really make the process seamless.
You can fill up your calendar quickly by using the web clipper tool, save your commonly used hashtags and phrases using ‘Snippet’ and use the filter and search function to quickly and easily find what you are looking for. Grammarly allows you to rest easy knowing that your content is mistake free, whilst the ability to post to a variety of popular social media channels at the touch of a button makes life so much easier.
For those who are juggling several social media accounts at once, you can opt for a plan that works best for you. The respond function also assists with social media conversations on Twitter and Facebook, included with the Premium plan as standard, or you can bolt it on to any other plan for an additional fee per month.
If you aren’t sure whether the platform is for you, they offer a free, no obligation trial of their services without the need to provide your credit or debit card details, and if you are still not 100% sure about which package you require, you can opt for their Hobbyist package, which gives you a slightly more limited service (four social profiles, 1 calendar, 10 posts per month and email support) for free.
