The basic ‘How’ of HootSuite – Social Media made Easier?

A while ago I signed up for a HootSuite account.

The scary thing is that I had never heard of it before & used it for some backlinking ‘Sparkly Tool’ that I had bought. I have only just realised what it is for.

If you follow the above link it will take you to the FREE account where you get to play with 5 social media accounts. Most links you find on Google try to get you into a free 30 day trial of the Pro Version.

The 1st thing to realise is that it is 5 individual accounts i.e. 1 of your pages on Facebook counts as one rather than your entire Facebook portfolio.

The free one is what I have got at present, just to play around with & see if it is something that is worthy of the investment of £7.99 per month for the PRO version. This gives you up to 50 ‘accounts’.

Rather than ramble on, I thought I would take this opportunity to record a video showing you what I have discovered about it & the few things I have learnt in this very short time of ‘playing’.

Bare with me!, this will be no polished performance! I am new to this bit of software but thought this would be good practice on a whole host of levels!

Brace yourself!!

So did this help? Does anybody else use this bit of software? if so, are there any hints & tips you would like to share.

Thanks for reading/watching!
