3 simple and quick ways of delivering social media content

Anyone engaged on LinkedIn, Tumblr, Twitter, WordPress, Facebook, etc. at one point or another starts wondering how to consistently delivering great content and yet still save time. I get this set of questions all the time: “How do you find the time doing this and you still post all the time? Where and how do I start?” I have got 3 really easy and quick ways to do just that.
First of all relax if you have already started using most or all of the above mentioned social media platforms. You have already started to deliver content. What you will need now is a way how to deliver content to all of them.
- BufferApp: You can get this for your smart phone or simply sign up via their web site. I use this site the most for collecting and sending out contents. Once installed you can put any site, photos, etc into the buffer storage (or simply post it right away) by simply clicking on the Buffer icon of your browser or smart phone share option. Connect the networks you want to distribute the content to and set a schedule when to do that. It is really simple and saves an incredible amount of time. Cool add on benefit is that the analytics tab shows you how many folks you have reached and how many clicks were recorded. You get a buffer storage of 10 at any given time.

- Hootsuite: Another social media service that works much like Buffer is Hootsuite. It also lets you connect multiple platforms that you now can collect and deliver content with at a schedule set by you. Benefit is that you can also view your social media timelines.

- Mailchimp: If you want to build a more meaningful reach to “your” tribe you may want to distribute your value added content by ways of using Mailchimp.com. This mail service lets you generate and then distribute your own electronic magazine. It is a great tool to keep in touch with folks who totally dig what you provide and it is just another great way for you to build up your followership.
Now the only thing left to do is to find suitable content. Set aside 15 to 20 minutes every other day to scour your favorite social media sites for your favorite topics. That is really all you need. Posting more than twice a day defeats the purpose of you trying to deliver content that people will actually pay attention to. Have fun trying one or all services out.
