Are you using a social media automation system to send out your posts? If so, you’d be happy to hear that Google+ can now be automated through various third-party apps. Google has recently launched a pilot program that will enable Google+ Page owners to manage their accounts through six companies that have access to the Google+ API including Hootsuite, Buddy Media, Context Optional, Hearsay Social, Involver, and Vitrue.
Through these social media automation systems, not only will you be able to automate your posts, but you’ll also be able to manage your circles and monitor usage.
As an Internet marketing company, we can tell you that the benefits of using a social media automation system are substantial. Instead on sending separate posts to each of your social networks, you’re able to schedule your posts into the system in a single day so that you are using your time efficiently.
To take it a step further, if you have a weekly meeting with your social media team, you can plan out your posts for the upcoming week, sign off on the posts, and have them loaded into the social media automation system.
Many of the systems listed above offer a free version as well as paid versions, and they are very cost-effective. If you have any questions regarding the functionality of the various systems, feel free to contact us.
