You will hear and see these guys getting mentioned all over the web and for good reasons too. After reading all the hype about buffer, I decided to check it out for myself. I have been using it for about two months now and so far really happy with it. What I like most of all is the ability to queue post to publish and the ability to set each post to share and different times throughout the week. Current I am using their basic plan purely because it gets the job done and I have yet to have a reason to upgrade. One thing I must say is that they only support up to 10 social account and 4 social network which are Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn accounts.
Another great option to consider is Dlvr.it which unlike Buffer offers a lot more social networks for you to post too. The networks supported here are Twitter, Facebook, Google+, StockTwits, Tumblr, StatusNet, App.net and LinkedIn. I have had personal experience with this site being a member for around 2 years. The only fault I had with this site is they didn’t have the ability schedule which they have recently added. Highlights for me is their stats page which gives you an in-depth breakdown of thing like your reach, clicks, where you are getting shares and so on.
I have recently discovered this amazing piece of web application which I believe you should all use it’s free and can work in conjunction with Hootsuite, Buffer and many others. The concept which is “if this then that” this being the trigger of over 170+ channels to choose from such as facebook, twitter etc… After selecting your trigger, then you can select what event you want to happen. Here is an example of how I use it: If This (new feed item from https://85ideas.com/feed/) Then That(create a link post on facebook). Hopefully, you are able to see the sort of thing you can use with this web app. Let me know how I did explain this site in the comments below.
Onlywire would seem like the clear winner on the page as they share to over 50 social networks but after using it for a few months I deactivated my account. The reason I did this is because the post share seemed very spammy, as they would share half the article in social networks that allows it like Google+. Maybe it was me not playing around the setting more but this really put me off as compared to the others I am used to.
This is an interesting solution if you not only want to promote your new content but your old post then defiantly check this one out. Here at 85ideas we try to create articles that will not just be relevant today but in years to comes. The reason I mentioned this is to help show the value of promoting your old articles also. Like the others mentioned above you can also schedule your post weeks ahead to save time. Another cool feature is that you can easily add team members at no added cost.
Other you might what to check out which I have not personally tried yet are:
