Social Media help?

  • Posted by Joshua Alcorn on April 8, 2024 at 7:52 am

    Friends! Looking for your collective wisdom around platforms to help manage social media content creation and scheduling.

    Maybe you’ve noticed the Conference’s socials have been a LOT LOT LOT more active lately. I’m struggling to keep things moving and part of it is the clunkiness of Meta’s content planner.

    Any suggestions on solutions that allow sharing across platforms (Meta and LinkedIn primarily).

    Are people still using HootSuite? That’s what I used back in the late Aughts when I was in politics.

    Thank you!

    Oh, and if you have any advice for convincing Meta’s algorithm to show organic posts to more peeps, I’d appreciate them too! 🙃

      We have also been having trouble with this lately. If anyone has any helpful info to share it’d be very appreciated!

    We use Loomly and have found it to be very user-friendly and helpful in scheduling. The only downside to Loomly is that they cannot post to stories or Reels without a manual add. If you are just looking to schedule and auto post to a Facebook or LinkedIn page there would be no issue!

    It’s hard to keep up with social media! I wonder if using a native tool would get better algorithm boosts? Perhaps hire a VA to do social posts? A friend’s org LOVES Sprout Social but it’s pricey $199 a month. I’ve taken Julia Campbell’s social media storytelling course — I will take a quick look at that and see if she has a particular platform she recommends. (that would be a great session at the NPSC 🙂 )

      Sprout Social: They do offer a NP discount if you call.
