Post Your Etsy Listings To Twitter Automatically!
I've been talking about social networking and how to automate it to make best use of your time. I recently started using HootSuite to help automate and schedule posting to my social networks. They offer a free version that is plenty robust enough for most of us Etsy users.
The free version allows you to link up to five different social profiles including Twitter and Facebook! It also provides some basic analytics so you can keep track of your progress. It also allows you to auto-schedule your posts via an online dashboard. The different paid versions of HootSuit expand what you can do but for most of us the free version is plenty good.
I have been using it for a few months now and it sure makes my life much easier. It also helps me to make a much better effort of being engaging. The rule of thumb on engaging is 10 to 15 nonbusiness posts for every one business or marketing post. Being able to actually see the number of posts listed helps to make this easier. One of the really great auto-scheduling perks is that it sets your posts up to go live at peak times for the network you are using. No more guesswork on when to post!
Alright, that's all for today. Go and check out HootSuite and see if it can help you.
