Let’s face it, when it comes to updating our social media accounts it can become very cumbersome and time consuming. Most times when I attempt to make social media posts I get sidetracked and start browsing timelines and such and before I know it, an hour of the day is gone! And that’s before I ever make the first post. I needed a solution that helped save time on social media so I went on the search and I found something called FlexSocial.
FlexSocial is a software program that is designed to help save time in your social media accounts by automating much of the process. The basic version of the software works with 6 different social media networks including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, Tumblr, and Pinterest. FlexSocial can automate posting to some or all of these different platforms.
Setting Up the Program
To set up the program initially all you’ll need to do is login to their interface which is based online. Then adding your social accounts is easy. You’ll need to verify the OAuth to your social accounts and grant permission for each. All of which can be removed if you think something is not right about it. I haven’t had any type of problem to date however.
Once all your social accounts are added you simply start making status updates and scheduling them. You can reuse posts or change them up a bit to make them more unique. The best part of this is that you can do everything from right inside the interface of the FlexSocial program. You don’t need to visit each and every site to post manually like I once was doing.
One of the automation features of Flexsocial is that it can auto respond to comments that are left. So if you’re out of the office for a bit set up an auto response when someone messages your page. There is no limit on the things that you can do to make this more functional for your social media campaigns.
You can even use the copyright free images that are included in FlexSocial for your social media posts. There is also a built in editor that allows you to add text or your company logo to help increase brand exposure.
