Social media is an excellent way of generating traffic to your website.
Not only will this article help out webmasters using social media platforms, but hopefully it will inspire webmasters not using social media to actually pick it up and give it a go.
For many webmasters, social media is just one more thing to do, and for that reason many do not even bother with it, and some only posts every now and again which isn’t going to do you much good. Posting on social media can be timely, and sometimes not everyone has the time to dedicate networking as they are busy doing the actual work to their website.
Well, there’s a handy tool that you can use to make using social media a whole lot easier, and a whole lot quicker. It’s called HootSuite, and it’s a social media management tool. Essentially, it lets you manage your social media networks from one location, and comes with a host of handy features.

In short, HootSuite offers the ability to manage your Facebook page, Twitter account and other networks you may have from one central hub. You can schedule posts to go out at a certain time to have maximum effect, as well as respond to messages, post photos, videos and links. Being able to schedule posts is incredible handy for the time conscious – put back an hour or so in a week and schedule a few tweets/posts each day for the week, and sit back and relax!
