There are just so many different platforms for social media management, and they range from prices of $10 a month to $100s a month. What do you do when you are trying to figure out what to use?
First you need to know there is a big difference in which one you need to use depending on whether you are using it for yourself personally, your company being a one man business / micro business, have employees and want them to assist in posting or if you are using it as a manager that takes care of social media for clients.
Then you need to find one that works well with you; the way you work with and view online platforms. What I mean by that is I can view some dashboards and they are very clear to me. (A dashboard is an overview of various parts of a social media platform. Example: Twitter you might have the feed, scheduled Tweets, Mentions and searches all showing up on one page.) A partial photo of a dashboard is just above.
While other’s I look at are very chaotic in my mind and I have a hard time making sense of them quickly, which is what a dashboard is there to do — Let you see all the important things clearly, in one snapshot.
Due to the above I have tried out many different platforms. I wrote an article about some of the ones, the least expensive ones, that I have tried in hopes that it would be a help to you when deciding what you need.
