  5. Free Buffer lets you manage 3 accounts and up to 10 posts at a time (in one day or multiple days) with their free account. Pretty great for a free plan IMO for all accounts except for Twitter. It’s also easy to use.

  6. My favorite posting tool is PostPlanner. The content library feed is invaluable to have right there, in the moment of setting up the posts. You can choose content by topic from articles, quotes, and graphics.

    1. For small businesses, Buffer works great and so does Hootsuite. For larger organizations, Falcon is most suited.

    I’ve used Hootsuite and Buffer in the past, but hadn’t heard of the other three. Thanks for sharing!

    Out of curiosity, what are your thoughts on publishing sites like Crowdfire that allow you to share other people’s content in order to post often and remain at the top of follower’s feeds?
