Organization is important for Internet marketers.  After all, marketers have a lot on their plates at any given time, so the more organized they are, the more successful they can be.  With that in mind, I’m going to talk about HootSuite – Organize Your Social Network Accounts with HootSuite.  HootSuite is an easy way to stay organized.

HootSuite is a social media dashboard.  It allows users to:

  • Manage several social media profiles
  • Schedule messages and tweets
  • Track mentions
  • Analyze traffic

Basically, you’ll upload your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Ping.fm information into HootSuite.  Then you’ll schedule your updates and track statistics right from the dashboard.  This will save you a large amount of time, since you won’t have to log into Facebook, Twitter or one of the other networks every time you want to make an update or track statistics.

Additionally, you’ll be able to manage multiple accounts.  For example, if you have several niche sites, you might have several Twitter accounts.  You’ll use each account to post updates for a specific niche.  You can add each account into HootSuite and then switch between them easily. 

Again, this will save you some time, which is essential.  After all, the more free time you have, the more time you can spend on one of your other Internet marketing projects.  That means it will be easier for you to achieve success with Internet marketing.

Getting HootSuite

HootSuite has a free and a paid plan.  If you get the free plan, you‘ll receive:

  • Free Quick Reports
  • 5 Social Profiles
  • 2 RSS/Atom Feeds

The free version is ad supported, so you’ll also have to view ads when you use this version.  The ads aren’t too obtrusive, though, so this won’t actually be a problem at all.

Organize Your Social Network Accounts with HootSuite pictureIf you upgrade to the pro version, you’ll be charged $5.99 a month.  While you will have to pay, you’ll get lots of features that will make Internet marketing even easier.  The pro version comes with:

  • Unlimited social profiles, so you can load all of your accounts into HootSuite
  • A free team member who can help you
  • A free enhanced analytics report
  • Google Analytics integration
  • Facebook Insights integration

Additionally, you won’t have to view ads with the paid service.

Whether you go with the free or the paid versions, I highly recommend that you install HootSuite.  Just go to hootsuite.com/plans and select your plan. 

Once you do that, upload your social network account information and get started.  Then, post your updates and manage your accounts right from the dashboard.  This will be a huge time saver, and will also streamline the social networking process for you.

Let me know what you think of HootSuite.  Also, tell me what other time saving tricks and tips you use.  Do you use special programs, or do you have techniques you use?  Let me (and the other readers) know in the comment section below.  Also, read through the comment section so you can find out what tips and tricks other readers use.
