What are the Best Time-Saving Social Media Tools?

best time-saving social media tools?So, just what are the best time-saving social media tools?

I see people struggle so hard to keep up appearances on their social media sites.

Everyone wants to be everywhere all the time.

In fact, it’s critical that you strive to meet that goal in order to build trust and credibility with your target audience.

And it’s equally critical to expand that core audience, and consistently put your blogging brand in front of a new crowd.

But it can all take so much time, right?

So, again… what are the best time-saving social media tools?

I’m pretty active on a few social media sites, but I’m not a big user of social media tools.

Yet, I know they are a really important aid to your blog or online business (so I should explore this more myself, no?).

There are so many tools out there, though, that it can get really confusing.

So I asked Lilach Bullock, widely acclaimed blogger and social media expert, to share her thoughts on some of the best ways to go with this.

She’s done a wonderful job, and I’m sure you’ll learn a lot from her today.

What are the Best Time-Saving Social Media Tools?

by Lilach Bullock

Social media is effective when you’re consistent and post quality content regularly – whether it’s curated or original content.

In this blog post, I want to look at some of the top time-saving social media tools – and try to find out which one is the best.

Social media scheduling: the basics

Social media scheduling tools have grown and evolved a lot over recent years, introducing all kinds of features to help marketers, bloggers, and so on to make the most out of their social media presence – and, of course, also save time.

It’s not enough to just schedule a post for a time and day; you need to be able to:

  • Create evergreen content queues
  • Create content categories so that you can republish them on a loop, without having to do anything else yourself
  • Visualize and plan your social media calendar
  • Collaborate with team members
  • Check your social media content analytics and best posting times

The most important features to me, except of course for basic scheduling tools, are evergreen content queues and categories.

Without these, I’d have to spend hours every week tweeting incessantly.

That is, if I even had the time to do that much.

With these features, I not only get to save time, but I also generate more traffic and leads from social media.

Because the truth is, it’s not enough to post something once, or to only post a few times a day, especially on Twitter.

If you want people to see your updates and take action, then you need to post them multiple times and quite often.

Following is an in-depth look at some of the most popular social media marketing and scheduling tools on the market:

  • Agorapulse
  • Buffer
  • MeetEdgar


Supported networks: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube

Agorapulse is a social media management tool.

But they have recently been adding more pro features to their publishing and scheduling side.

This makes it more similar to some tools that are focused solely on scheduling (and therefore, usually have more features than management tools).

So, basically, you might have started out paying for social media management features, but you’re also getting some very powerful scheduling features as well.

Here’s an overview of their main features:

  • Social inbox for managing your social media accounts
  • Monitoring features
  • Publish and schedule content
  • Collaboration tools for teams
  • Analytics and reporting
  • CRM tool for social audiences

Now, let’s take a deeper look at what exactly it can do in terms of scheduling social media updates.

First off, you can use it to publish and schedule updates to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Instagram (on Instagram, you can prepare your updates on your desktop/phone and then get reminders for when you have to publish them).

Each social network has its own dashboard, where you can access the Social Inbox with your mentions, the monitoring tab, publishing, and analytics/reporting.

Once you click on the publishing tab, there are a few different options:

best time-saving social media tools

The Social Media Calendar

The social media calendar is where you can see your entire schedule for the month, to get a complete idea of your plan.

All items are color coded.

The list above the calendar shows you exactly what each color is, and can be easily filtered.

This is particularly useful if you have updates that are under review, or if you work as part of a team.

For example, if you want to only see the updates that were assigned to you, or the updates that are in the queue and those that are scheduled, you can do so by un-checking the other boxes.

To publish or schedule something, either click on the ‘publish now’ button, or click on ‘schedule’ on the day you want directly within the calendar:

best time-saving social media tools

Multiple Social Media Profiles

You can select multiple social media profiles to post to and automatically see a preview of your post on each network.

That is useful as I can now see my image would not work on Instagram:

best time-saving social media tools

Additionally, on Facebook you can add the images you post to albums.

You can also target specific audiences (by languages or countries).

Posting Queue

Back to posting though, you have 3 options:

  • Publish your post immediately
  • Schedule your post for a specific time and date
  • Add your post to a queue to be published numerous times automatically

This is probably my favorite feature – the queue:

best time-saving social media tools


If you have any evergreen content to promote, or maybe an event coming up, this comes in very handy.

First, add your content to a category… promotional, general, blog posts, etc.

You can also tag your content, if you want to be even more organized.

Then, decide how many times you want it to be published.

Re-queque Content Multiple Times

You could make the update go out unlimited times, until you manually stop it.

Or, you could have it go out anywhere from 2 to 50 times.

And finally, you can have it go out multiple times, and stop completely on a date you set.

This is particularly useful for promotional events, new products, and so on.

This is the feature I was talking about earlier on, and praising its importance.

Queue Time Slots

As for when the posts in your queue go out, it’s up to you.

You can create specific time slots and select which content category will go out in each one:

best time-saving social media tools

This way, you can just set your updates and forget about them – for a while, at least.

Scheduling via CSV File

Another way of uploading and scheduling updates is with a .csv file.

The updates can be scheduled or added to a queue:

best time-saving social media tools

They explain exactly what your spreadsheet should look like, and you can even download a sample to make sure.

With many other similar tools, you still need to schedule the updates you upload in bulk.

But with Agorapulse, you can set up all of that within your spreadsheet, which is pretty cool.

Team Collaboration

Another useful and time-saving feature is the fact that you can collaborate with others on your social media.

Content can be assigned to any team member you want.

All updates can then be approved before they are scheduled or published, to avoid any blunders.

For ease, you’ll be able to quickly access assigned updates by your ‘assigned to me’ tab.

Or if you’re the editor, you can approve updates by going to the “to approve” tab.

Final Thoughts

What I love about Agorapulse is that you not only get all the main features that usually come with a pro scheduling tool, but you can also use it to manage your entire social media, including monitoring and analytics.

It has a very easy-to-use interface.

It’s quick, intuitive, and it’s all-in-one.

But most of all, it has those evergreen content categories that you can use to publish and republish as many updates as you want, as many times as you want.

Basically, you can create a whole years’ worth of updates and completely forget about them as they keep going out.

MeetEdgar is a very simple tool.

It doesn’t have many features, but it’s a really good option for people who need to post a lot of updates on their social profiles.

MeetEdgar’s focus is to help you automate as much of your social media updating as possible, with minimal effort on your part.

Evergreen Content

Unlike most other social media scheduling tools on the market, MeetEdgar is all about the evergreen content.

It shares a few similarities with Agorapulse, in the sense that you:

  • Create content categories where you add your updates (you can also upload in bulk with a .csv file)
  • Add each category to the time slot you want in your social media calendar

When you add content to your queue, I like the fact that you can upload it for multiple social accounts.

best time-saving social media tools

However, you can’t edit for each one to optimize the update.

The content you add to your content categories will be automatically added to the queue, so that it gets republished unlimited times.

However, if you don’t want that, you can change your setting:

best time-saving social media tools

As you can see above, you can also send the update at a specific time and date.

But then it will be added back to the queue to be reused, unless you add it to the ‘use once’ category.

Or, you can set an expiration date for the update (time and date).

Curated Content

Another big feature is that you can curate content from your preferred sources automatically.

Just like with scheduling and queuing updates, this feature is all about involving your manual action as little as possible.

You just copy and paste the link to the publication you want and pick the channels you want to post on:

best time-saving social media tools

Once done, you can choose to import any new items from your feed to the pending content queue, or directly to your library.

Final Thoughts

Although it’s a great option for creating large evergreen content queues, MeetEdgar does lack quite a few features.

Additionally, it only works with 3 social networks.

It would be good to see

  • collaboration tools for planning,
  • some analytics (at least best times to post so you can add them to your time slots), and
  • more supported social networks.

Buffer is a social media marketing tool for publishing and scheduling updates, as well as tracking your content’s performance.

Like Agorapulse earlier, Buffer allows you to collaborate with your team.

There are 2 ways to view your dashboard/queue of scheduled posts: either as a list or as a calendar:

best time-saving social media tools


To get started, you can begin by setting your posting times – i.e., the times when you want your updates to go out:


best time-saving social media tools


You can

  • remove time slots,
  • turn days completely off (no updates going out), and
  • easily add time slots for every day, or only specific days.

Once you’ve set your time slots, you’ll be able to see the list/calendar with all of your available time slots, so you know when you need to add some content:


best time-saving social media tools

To add an update, just click on the available time slot:


best time-saving social media tools

Upload images and videos, write your update, and schedule it.

You can also use your dashboard to plan your future updates and perfect them.

Go to the drafts section and add all of your update ideas, images, videos, and so on.

RSS Feed Integration

One of the standout features (at least, to me) is that you can add RSS feeds to your ‘content inbox.’

That way you can easily curate and share top content to your fans and followers.

You just have to add publications, websites, and blogs you like to your content inbox.

What are the best time-saving social media tools?

Buffer will automatically pull their latest content.

If you want to add a post to your queue, you just click on “add” and you’re good to go.

Buffer Drawbacks

As I mentioned earlier, Buffer also works with Instagram.

However, Buffer for Instagram only works on your phone.

To access it, you need to get the Buffer app for iOS or Android.

But while this does slow down the process a bit, it’s understandable considering you have to post via your phone anyway.

In terms of drawbacks though, Buffer does not offer content categories for setting up queues this way.

So you’ll need to stay on top of it constantly to keep posting updates.

Another drawback is that you can’t upload in bulk.

However, there is a 3rd party app that you can use for this.

Link Shortening and Tracking

When posting, you should also set up link shortening and tracking.

You can choose to post your links as they are and not have them tracked.

Or you can shorten your links by using

  • Buffer’s buff.ly,
  • bit.ly or
  • j.mp.

When you shorten your links with one of these 3, your link results will be tracked.

Additionally, you can also connect with Google Analytics to further track your social media traffic.

Final thoughts

Buffer has a very clean and easy to use interface.

It’s quick to learn and great for those who have to manage multiple profiles.

However, as I mentioned earlier, it does lack some very important features.

Most notably, the fact that you cannot set up content categories and queue them up unlimited times.

What are the best time-saving social media tools?
The Verdict

These are all very good tools – which is why I’ve chosen them – with plenty of features and benefits in common.

Personally, I do believe that your specific needs should determine which one is the best option.

f you want something to help you completely manage your social media and also get pro scheduling, then Agorapulse is the best option.

If you want to keep your scheduling separate from managing mentions, monitoring, and so on, Buffer is the better option.

And, if you only want to schedule unlimited amounts of updates and have them go out automatically with no input from you, MeetEdgar might be the best option for you.

Have you tried any of these 3 tools?

Which do you prefer… and why?

    Hi Lilach & Donna,

    What an insightful article. Honestly, you cannot do it all alone – by yourself manually. That’s where automation come to play. Social media scheduling tools will help to facilitate the process and make life easy for you.

    I can’t imagine myself sitting behind my desk whole day posting content on various social media sites. It’s stressful and unhealthy. My best tool for scheduling is HootSuite, even though I use buffer as well. But HootSuite is my best shot.

    Thanks for posting Lilach, and thank you too Donna for hosting her!

    Hi Lilach,

    It is so great to see you here. I was seriously unaware about the agorapulse. I have used many social media tools and buffer is definitely a great tool that every person should use.

    One should also learn about the best time to publish on social media and use the social media tools accordingly.

    Amazing list of social media tools you have mentioned.
    Heard a lot about MeetEdgar & Buffer, but Agorapulse is something new for me.
    I am using Buffer as it has an easy user interface.
    Now the only struggle as you have mentioned is it’s Instagram posting.

    Thanks for sharing these amazing list Lilach.
    Will try Arorapulse soon..

    Hi Donna and Lilach, I LOVE the Buffer, I have been using that tool for over 6 years now. I’ve tried many others over the years but the Buffer always come out the easier one to use. It works well on mobile too as I’m mobile often. I don’t share too often on Instagram, 1 or 2 daily unless I’m travelling and having to use it from my mobile is A okay with me.
    I agree with Janice that some of the tools out there are quite costly. I do use the premium version of Buffer but it’s only $10 per month and less if you do it via the year plan. (That’s affordable).
    I think it’s either time or money that you have to spend to get ahead though.
    I will check out your calendar via Agorpulse though Lilach, that looks awesome. I tend to get off my schedule from time to time 🙂
    Thanks for sharing how these all work!
    I hope you both have a great week ahead Donna and Lilach 🙂

    Finding great social media tools to help speed up the process of finding and curating great content is one of the things I’ve been researching lately. I’ve heard of most of these tools and as such I do use Buffer and it’s a pretty good platform. I haven’t looked into Agorapulse yet but will do soon. I’ve also found some other tools that I’m currently using with great success as well. Great article as I’d maybe decided against the first 2 tools so I’ll likely check them out again.

I’ve been working with Buffer and Hootsuite and while they do help with scheduling, I’ve been getting quite a few messages that my posts are not going out because of duplication. I alter them when I schedule them but I guess I’m not altering enough and I need to upgrade. I didn’t want to upgrade until I was sure which one worked the best for me.

    Agorapulse and MeetEdgar, are new to me. I’ll have to check them out.

    We use Hootsuite for our own blogs and Buffer for clients. Both are fantastic tools and help us queue up evergreen content, collaborate with our team, and manage our social media somewhat. Despite all these tools, I still log in and work directly on social networks sometimes since I just feel compelled to (whenever I get the time).

    Buffer, I have to agree, has got the cleanest and the most beginner friendly Interface so far. HootSuite, comparatively, looks a little busy. Either way, both are indispensable for us.

    Hi Lilach,

    This is a great list of social media tools. When I first started my blog, I was using Buffer, which was really good for me at the time, until I started understanding the whole social media marketing aspect.

    Now I use Smarter Queue and I love it. There are so many tools that help us bloggers out. I personally think that it would be impossible to grow a blog without the help of some type of social tool.

    While I don’t like to rely 100% on automation, I do believe that you need it if you want your business to grow. It’s impossible to do everything manually.

    The cool thing is that you can take time off from your business and still have a social presence because you’re using a tool to help you out.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with these tools. You’re right, you have to find the right one that works for you and just test it out. I’ve tested out a few different tools since starting my blog.

    Have a great day 🙂

    I don’t use social media scheduling tools. I prefer to post things when I am inspired to do so… which is often! It also shows that I am ready and willing to authentically engage with others.

    But that’s just me. 😉

    I know there are benefits of using such apps. I just prefer to post things myself.

    I’m digging these tools Lilach. One needs some tools as they scale; otherwise you run out of time as your business grows. I use a few tools on social; especially for scheduling. I need to publish updates in reader time zones. Example; I’m in Thailand now. 12 hours ahead of EST in the USA. To vibe with my reader base I tend to share stuff in their time zone.

    Next month is a bigger leap. I’m traveling to New Zealand. 18 hours ahead of the US EST meaning more scheduling, automating and catering to my reader’s needs. No way around it whether you are an island hopping, traveling blogger or homebody who wants to schedule out for a few hours, days or weeks. Use tools.

      Hi Ryan,

      Wow…New Zealand next month! Gosh you are really covering a lot of ground these days lol.

      Scheduling is important and for you in different time zones it is imperative! I had insomnia the other night and was able to connect with so many people on the other side of the world at 4 a.m. EST. It was a blast.

    Hi Donna and Lilach ,

    It is true that we want to be everywhere all of the time which can get pretty hectic and can prevent us from doing the more important things. Social media tools are a necessity now.

    Having a lot of scheduling and queuing to do, we need tools that are user friendly and have useful features. It takes time to search and try different tools to decide which one is the best for us. This article is very useful as we have a short list of good tools to try and choose from.

    Thanks for this informative article about such useful tools. Have a great day!

    Hey Lilach!

    I’m a fan of your blog. You have a lot of experience blogging so I know you know what you are talking about here. These social media tools are a time saver, really. I like using the buffer tool. I have not heard much about the Agorapulse, but now I can tell is a great tool with way more features.

    You have to stay productive when you are building a profitable business online through blogging, and such automation tools help a lot. We gotta become a smart blogger, right! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this list of social media tools, I’d highly recommend to use them!

    Best regards!
