Christmas Social Media Tools to Help Keep You Sane Until New Year
Just because Christmas is a great opportunity for marketing doesn't make it an easy time for social media managers. On the contrary, it’s all too easy to get so wrapped-up (if you’ll pardon the pun) in the preparation that you overlook vital parts of your strategy. These Christmas social media tools could help give you some much needed assistance.
A lot of the time mistakes in social media marketing strategies don’t come as a result of poor planning, they occur within the execution of the strategy itself. Whether they manifest as formatting errors or come in the shape of missed deadlines or overlooked posts, avoidable strategy issues can spell the difference between success and failure. And the most frustrating thing? They are almost always totally avoidable.
Things always get a lot busier around Christmas. Having a meticulously organised plan is integral to getting the results you desire. But they can only take effect if you stick to them. When things get busy success is all about adaptability and proper time management.
These Christmas social media tools will help you keep on track and ensure you don’t totally lose it before the new year comes around.

Later is a simple app that allows you to schedule and manage your Instagram marketing. Instagram is fast becoming an integral part of social media marketing strategies - so as far as Christmas social media tools go, Later is a really useful tool. It is has been made to allow you to organise and schedule your visual content, so it could be great for ecommerce and product-focused users, and businesses who engage with visual content.
Worthy mention for the two staples of social media scheduling. Hootsuite is one of the best known pieces of social media marketing software around allowing you to link, manage, post, schedule and analyse. In reality, it requires you invest in a paid plan to get the most out of it. Tweetdeck is the staple post scheduler for Twitter. As Christmas social media tools that allow you to save time and streamline your posting strategy, they are both no-brainers.
