Relaying one message simultaneously across all social media channels is of prime importance in the journey of building brand equity of any brand. HootSuite.com is the tool that facilitates sending brand messages across facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Foursquare and Myspace in one go. It is social media communication dashboard used for online brand management.

For the last three years I have consistently maintained my reasonably high presence on facebook, twitter and linkedin and participants in my workshops often ask me a question how can I manage to update social media networking sites despite my busy training and traveling schedules. Some think that someone else maintains my social media. It’s not the case. I not only update my own facebook account, facebook fan page, fan page of my book The Craft of Selling “YOURSELF”, LinkedIn and Twitter but also update facebook pages of half a dozen brands and you will be surprised to know that I don’t spend more than 30 minutes a day to maintain social media sites for myself and for my clients. The tool that helped me is HootSuite.com.

Up till five accounts, it is free but beyond that you have to buy the package.  Here are key features of HootSuite.

  1. It has in-built URL shortener with prefix ow.ly, so need to worry about big URLs.
  2. It gives analytics report of the url that helps you to know how many people clicked your link.
  3. You can schedule your messages as much as you like. With this application, your brand can communicate with the audience even when you are sleeping or busy in the meeting or are air-borne.
  4. You can choose the theme of your dashboard as per your liking.
