Scheduling social media posts just got a whole lot easier thanks to Symphony. About a month ago, someone in one of my Facebook groups shared a link to Symphony and said they were trying it out.
I consider myself an early adopter and thought what the heck I’ll sign up for it too.
They had a free trial for one month and no credit card was required so I figured what have I got to really lose? Well, I gained so much by joining Symphony.
Mostly time and less frustration! I was using Hootsuite to schedule tweets and the link shortener would freeze up almost every time I tried to use it.
I’d have to close the program and go back in again. Anyways! Symphony rocks…I wanted to share with you a bit more about it and why I like it so much!
What is Symphony?
Symphony is an all-in-one social media management dashboard that allows you to manage your posts to almost all of your social media profiles. You can connect your:
- Personal Facebook profiles
- Facebook business and fan pages
- Facebook groups
- Twitter feed
- LinkedIn profile
- LinkedIn groups
- Instagram feed
- Blogs you manage
I’ve connected my Facebook pages and Twitter accounts as well as Instagram. I mainly use it for Facebook and Twitter though.
What Can You Do with Symphony
The question really is what can’t you do with Symphony? It does a lot! Here are a few of the features:
- Syndicate your latest blog posts to Facebook & Twitter
- Showcase Your Latest Posts on a Facebook Tab on your Page
- Automatic Shortening with Bit.ly: Plus you can also use your own bit.ly so you can see how many clicks your links had when you login into bit.ly. You copy and paste the link and it automatically shortens. You can skip a step which is a huge timesaver!
- Queue Your Posts: If you have a tweet or post that you want to advertise a few times, you can use your queue and set when it will go out. This saves you from having to copy and paste the same tweet over and over and schedule it for different days. You pick the dates and times in your queue and symphony does the rest.
- See How Many Fans/Followers You Gained/Lost: In your dashboard, it will show you how many new followers you gained and lost the previous day.
- Group Collaboration: If you are an admin on a group page, you can see what the other team members have scheduled. I have a group Facebook page and it’s been working really well for us. We all use Symphony to schedule and I can always see what they’ve got scheduled so I don’t overlap content.
There’s a lot more to Symphony and I’m still having fun exploring and learning as I go.
Symphony is free for the first month and then after that, if you end up liking it, you can purchase one of their paid plans. The one I’m looking at is $14/month.
However, if you invite your friends to try Symphony, you’ll receive 1 month free for each friend who decides to try it out. Your friend doesn’t have to buy a plan, they only need to try the free trial.
They’ll give you up to a year free. I’ve already got my free year, but I’ll definitely be purchasing a plan when it runs out.
If you’re looking for a user-friendly way to manage your social media, give Symphony a try. I’m adding to my best of 2013 list!
