Hootsuite | A Scheduling Tool

Hootsuite quick start guide by Linda Barry Photography

I am all about trying to maintain boundaries between my personal life and my business, as well as being efficient! Hootsuite is one of the ways I can make that happen! Hootsuite is a scheduling program that will let you schedule your social media as far in advance as you want! Hootsuite quick start guide by Linda Barry Photography

With a free Hootsuite account, you can link it to three social media accounts. I have mine linked to my facebook business page and my twitter account. I did link my instagram account, but ended up using this app instead for instagram.

Below is a screenshot of what I see when I log into my hootsuite account.

To schedule your posts, you click on the top left corner, and choose which social media outlet you want to post to. Once you’ve chosen your profile, you can enter text, include links, post photos and so on! You use the calendar button to schedule WHEN you want your posts to be live! Hootsuite quick start guide by Linda Barry Photography

In this screenshot below you can see how I’ve scheduled posts to my twitter account! I heavily use hootsuite to schedule to my facebook page. Before we went on our roadtrip this past summer, I was able to schedule 7 or 8 posts to facebook in advance that linked to my blog!

I LOVE using this program because it’s free, it’s easy, and it keeps things simple for me. It also helps to keep me from being on social media any more than I want to!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!

I'm Linda!
