Hootsuite – Social media for musicians made easy

Online band management of social networks for musician doesn’t need to be messy – Try Hootsuite!

So many social media platforms, so little time.. You want your band to have presence on as many sites as possible, but if you do then you must be available to interact on them. Did you know there are free social media management tools out there that allow you view multiple social accounts all in one place?

 

What is Hootsuite

A social media management platform that helps you juggle multiple social media accounts across a variety of networks, streamlining your pages and allowing to see all of your posts/comments/messages on one screen. You can post on more than one network at a time, specifically Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and more, and even schedule everything in advance.

 

Interesting Features

You can combine both your personal accounts and multiple band accounts all in one place.

Mobile App.

Send private messages directly from Hootsuite.

 

Pros/Highlights

Schedule your posts in advance, meaning you can set up all your posts on all your networks on a Monday, and they will run themselves for the rest of the week.

Some analytics available in free, or upgrade to pro for more advanced analytics

 

Cons/Limitations

Potentially limits the exposure to your facebook posts as they reward you for posting directly from their interface rather than third parties.

Difficult to tag bands on facebook, and some bands have different handles on Twitter vs Instagram, and if you post at the same time you need to think carefully about your hashtags too.

Be careful with scheduling, make sure you’re available to respond to any comments or interaction on every network.

Can be a bit confusing to look at, be very careful to submit your posts carefully.
