Usually, I’m not one to brag about my relationships but…
I’m in love with Postcron.
Before I get into my current relationship with Postcron though, I want to share a bit with you about my dating journey.
I got into social media marketing for businesses about a year ago (wow, has it really been that long?!) and I got tired of having to be around my computer all the time to post messages so I let the world know I was ready to date a scheduler.
Many suitors presented themselves. At first I tried out the young’uns – the small, web-based programs that were new and free and generally focused on one, specific task. I wanted something that did that job and did it well. I tried Twuffer and LaterBro, among others for both Twitter and Facebook. They did their jobs but something was missing. We broke up.
There were the mature connoisseurs types like Tweetdeck and Hootsuite. Robust applications promising to satisfy my every social media need. After several brief but torturous run-ins with Tweetdeck where I caught him putting out my schedule messages too early, I couldn’t stand it anymore. He claimed it was just a timing issue, that his clock didn’t match with mine. But I just couldn’t trust him anymore.
Hootsuite seemed like he was the answer. The one feature he offered that the others lacked was that I could add pictures to my scheduled posts. I couldn’t do that before. And even when he demanded that I pay a small fee of $5.99 per month to add more accounts, I obliged. Small price to pay for what he offered. But then came the stark reality that he too was flawed. The little embezzler wanted to charge me $15 per month per additional team member. Now as I mentioned, I am a social media marketer – this means I manage several accounts for several different organizations. I don’t need one additional team member. I need at least one per every organization I work with. Nope! We can’t work together like this.
I went on a few dates here and there, had a couple flings too but no one stuck around for very long. Until I met Postcron.
Here’s what I like about Postcron – it has managed to copy the Facebook user interface posting box so when I’m using it, it practically feels like I’m using Facebook itself. Now for junkies and control freaks like myself, that means I can see exactly what my post is gonna look like on Facebook – link descriptions, pictures and all – I can even post a tweet. Their Pro plan for $3.95 per month gives the opportunity to schedule posts on Facebook AND Twitter with UNLIMITED outstanding publications, the ability to multiply posts and you can work as a TEAM with unlimited members. And for the more robust users who want their posts to be branded AND linked to their own page, you can check out their Premium plan.
Lucky for you, we’re in an open relationship and I’m willing to share him so if you were like me thinking ‘all schedulers are dogs’, banish the thoughts and let’s go execute marketing plans together with Postcron!
(How corny was that?!)
Here’s what happened when Postcron and I realized we were perfect for each other…
