  1. That still feels a bit over my head but guess if I was doing it it would make sense. Thank you for taking the time to write this. Something I may have to invest in.

  2. Right I’ve just bookmarked this GEM of a post! I’ve been toying with the idea of going over to Social Oomph but got a bit scared! You’ve just convinced me to give it a whirl! Thank you 🙂 #AnythingGoes

  3. I’m a hootsuite user but have been looking at SocialOomph and a few others lately. Bulk uploading is a must since we handle many client accounts. I’d love to read more about what you think of their bulk upload features.

  4. I tried to sign up to social oomph a while ago but it didn’t work. Will have to try again because I really need to start scheduling tweets. Really useful post xx #bloggerclubuk

  5. This is really helpful, thank you. I’ve only just started out with my blog and I’m enjoying working out what kind of tweets work the interaction I get with them. Do you find you have less of this when using scheduled tweets? #bloggerclubuk

  6. I used the paid version of buffer and love that. I then use hootsuite to monitor social media, mainly twitter and then recur post to set up recurring posts that I want sent out ALL the time. do want to take a look at social oomph tho as ive heard great things! #bloggerclubuk

  7. thanks for this, it’s really useful. I did take a look at Social oomph but I was completely overwhelmed, you’ve encouraged me to go back for another look now.

  8. What a fab tool. I love posts like this where you get the tried and tested version and it’s relevant to bloggers. I’ll definitely have to check this out – it sounds fab.

  9. I really need to start using this, as scheduling is such a lengthy process at the moment. I write out each individual tweet and don’t schedule on any other platforms. I need to get organised 🙂 #BloggerClubUK

  10. One day, I’m going to sit down and sort out what programs have been working the best for me and streamline. Thanks for the recommendation as I’ll put this in the pot to figure my best plan. #bloggerclubuk

  11. What a fantastic set of instructions – this one is getting saved!!! I use Social Oomph, but the free version, and I often go days without tweets as I don’t have time to do the scheduling making sure all tweets have different wording! It’s a pain! But £10ish a month still seems quite a bit to me, when I don’t have money coming in… need to mull over this one a bit! Thanks for a very very useful post! #BloggerClubUK

    • I look at it as it saves me at least eight hours a week if I manually scheduled the same tweets. So that £10 buys me 32 more hours to use to earn money. Of course if you aren’t yet earning money from your online stuff then it might be a false economy!

  12. I currently use Social Oomph for all my Twitter posts but I use the free version. You have to schedule posts manually but you can save them and resue them. As long as you are organized it takes no time at all to schedule posts from the drafts. #BloggerClubUK

  13. Scheduling is so time consuming – at the moment I just use hootsuite but scheduling everything individually rather than in bulk just takes so much time. I might have to start thinking about using something different. Thanks for the tips. #bloggerclubuk

  14. I’ve bookmarked this post, it’s so useful thank you! I’ve recently started using social oomph, but the free version. As such, I’m still finding it very time consuming. I definitely need to think about getting the paid version, it isn’t as much as I expected. #BloggerClubUK

  15. I’ve heard great things about this – I need to look into the paid version. You lost me at the bit about the Word document but I’m sure it’d make sense when I start looking around Social Oomph. I started using a plugin that randomly sends tweets every hour which I’m happy with. It doesn’t have hashtags & things though. I’ll pin this for future reference! Thanks. #BloggerClubUK

  16. I use it and it’s great but I didn’t know about the bulk upload so thank you! One thing I don’t know is, when you’ve set a tweet say 10 times every 15 hrs, how do you remember to then go back and make it evergreen and space out your hours? I always forget. Wish there was an email reminder! I then go back and put it in again for 0 so its evergreen but at longer intervals. Do you know why I mean? #BloggerClubUK

    • When you first write your tweet, set it up for the 10 times every 15 hours. Copy the tweet and paste it back into the box then set it as evergreen straight away but put the start date as the date when your original set run out. You can then change the frequency too 🙂

  17. Automation is the only way to go in my book. I use a bulk upload but with another provider and readjust my spreadsheets each month. With does take a couple of hours but it lets me be the control freak I need to be lol! I wish I had discovered this before I had set up my spreadsheets. I can not face re doing it all lol! #BloggerClubUK

  18. I’ve just started using social oomph, but the free version as I can’t justify spending money on it right now. I was a bit disappointed I can’t schedule in bulk, so I try to do a week at a time. It is time consuming and I haven’t had time to do it properly with all the posts I want to promote, so I need to organise myself better. I’m rubbish at keeping up with twitter, but this definitely helps. Im not sure about how often to promote my posts, though. I dont want to be too agressive/ repetitive. #BloggerClubUK

    • I think the rule of thumb with Twitter is do the amount you think then treble it! It’s such a fast network, it would be hard to annoy anyone. I think the current stats are around 7% of your followers see each tweet so I say the more tweets the better!

  19. This is a really useful post thank you for writing. I’m a new blogger and have heard social oomph being mentioned a few times but didn’t know much more that than until now! 🙂

  20. Brilliant post, thanks a lot for sharing. That’s exactly what I needed right now. Until now I’ve only ever used Tweetdeck, but it was getting tedious! I signed up to Social Oomph and am currently doing a free trial. Love it so far, although I’m a bit scared people will find me madly spammy. Oh well…

    • I found Tweetdeck too time consuming after a while. Social Oomph is so much better. I don’t think people worry about what others are tweeting that much. Unless they are only following a tiny handful of people, I don’t even think people notice!
