Do you ever wonder how some people seem to post quotes at almost the same time every day? I’m sure you have friends on Facebook whose posts seem to appear on your timeline every five minutes. All you can think is “Are they really that attached to their phones?”
The power of technology allows you to be at home watching old reruns of Friends, stuffing your face with grandma’s homemade cake, and warming your body with the taste of hot chocolate while appearing as a social media queen. That’s right–during the time you are enjoying life, you can have a post scheduled in advance to interact with all of your followers.
Are you ready to maximize your daily 24 hours? Here are three productivity tools that can give you more time back into your daily schedule and enhance your online reputation.
1. Hootsuite Saves You Time
Does the thought of posting daily updates to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn cause you anxiety? Don’t have time to post to each social media account three times a day? Don’t worry about it. Let Hootsuite do it!
Hootsuite is the most widely used platform for social media management. You can manage multiple social networks, connect with customers, and grow your brand on social media. Simply schedule your posts and determine what social media platforms you would like to post on. You can respond to messages and view multiple social media accounts through a single dashboard.
At the low price of $0.00, you can schedule unlimited messages across all of your social media networks. So, if you ever have two hours of free time on a Saturday morning, this is the time to develop your social media content for the month. Schedule all of your unique quotes, share past blog posts you’ve written, and upload articles from others that align with your brand. This is your secret weapon to remaining relevant on social media even when you are trying to avoid pulling your hair out while working 80 hours a week.
2. Grum Increases Your Instagram Productivity
As of June 2016, Instagram reached 500 million active users. Just think about the power of having millions of individuals view your social media page. This is a social media network that you may want to investigate for your business or personal branding, especially if you are trying to target a younger generation.
Instagram is a photo-sharing social network, so make sure you have quality photos to share if you want to win on this social media platform. If you don’t have time to post daily, check out grum.co. This tool will allow you to schedule your Instagram posts in advance. With this tool, you can post on Instagram from the convenience of your computer.

3. Boomerang Decreases Your Email To-Do List
You finally get home after a long day of work and realize that you will need to get up early in order to send out a few important emails. You know that the snooze button will be your best friend in the morning, so you need another solution to accomplish your email goals.
That’s where Boomerang comes in. You don’t want people to think you are a vampire by sending out emails at 1:00 a.m.; you can schedule your emails to be sent later and set up easy email reminders. This is all done using your Gmail account. When you wake up in the morning, you will receive an email notification that your email has been sent. You will look like you are productive even when you are still dreaming about your perfect vacation to the Antigua Islands.
