Quick Fix Social Networking Tools

I write mainly for coaches and motivational speakers, and in this context, I write a lot of SEO related articles. In fact, I specialize in writing on Social Media, so it seems a bit strange that I did not make the time to get my business- Write Choice For You- onto Facebook.

The reason for this is simple: my day is divided into a)Finding suitable writing jobs, b) Working on the projects I elect to undertake, and c) Marketing my skills and the company via various online and offline plans. If the former two occupy a lot of my time, than the latter must suffer, as it has been for the last two months. Can I complain? Of course not. if money comes in, that's good! And since I work a short work-day, something has to give. In another 6-12 months, I hope to be able to extend my working hours and that's when a stronger marketing plan will need to kick in.

In the meantime, I'm always looking for shortcuts to help me build up my marketing on a tight time-frame. And so when I came across the following links, I was thrilled. The former show you easy ways to upload/update your business on Facebook:

These are sites which will allow you to write out your posts and set a time and date for when you want them sent out. They also have other nifty features like letting you automatically unfollow those who have unfollowed you, and tallying statistics as to the number of posts versus your followers.
