Social media marketing is growing in importance for most businesses, but most struggle to find the time to update profiles regularly.
According to this infographic from VerticalResponse, 10% of businesses never post to Facebook, and over 30% never Tweet.
If this sounds familiar, then don’t worry, help is at hand! Here are 3 awesome tools that can automate the entire social media process for you!
Automate using Klout
Klout started life as a simple tool for measuring the effectiveness of your social media output, but now it actually helps you with that output as well.
Plug in your social media profiles and some keywords which describe the subjects that you and your audience are interested in and it will throw up a feed with results that are relevant. You can then schedule these posts to go out at regular intervals.
This is particularly useful for companies who are not producing their own content, and instead focus on curating the work of others.

Automate using IFTTT
I am a huge fan of IFTTT (If This Then That) which can automate pretty much any activity, from turning on your lights to organising your calendar.
In the case of social media, you can set it to ping out updates when selected sites add a new item to their RSS feed. You can use this to share new posts on your company blog, or choose authority sites in your sector to share updates from.
Automate using Copify
The Copify WordPress plugin, when teamed with one of our monthly blog packages helps companies to automatically update their blog with quality, unique posts.
Give us your blog URL and some keywords and for a monthly fee (from £69/$89) we’ll deliver a number of posts each week. WordPress users can even have these posts pushed live automatically with an image!
