Social media has become the first priority of a business owner for publishing, sharing and engaging his brand. But it is a challenge for an entrepreneur to manage multiple social media websites simultaneously. Moreover, after wasting a large time here marketer are not able to get a sharp report of the impact of social media has on the business. For monitoring social media accounts, scheduling posts and getting reports a single window interface is essential and it is known as social media tools, e.g. hootsuite, sproutsocial, buffer etc.

It works similar to Hoot Suite or Sprout Social, it has similar dashboard interface which syncs with social media website.

Buffer makes it super easy to share great contents from any where on the web with just one click.

Instagram:

It is an easy and free way to share your life activities. Any customised picture, video posted on instagram can be shared instantly on facebook, twitter, tumbler and more. Instagram monitoring services (like, instadesk and curalate) are also available but any 3rd apps is not allowed to post to the services.  Monitoring and uploading to instagram directly on the app from your mobile device is recommended.

These services has been adopted by many business schools and we are helping them to do so. Although these services are easily available but to use them efficiently is a greater challenge without any help of professionals. We recommend to contact some professional or someone who has spent some quality on these tools.

Our best wishes for you.
