What best describes the benefit of using Hootsuite, as compared to engaging natively from specific social networks?

  • Assign the message to a social network the team or team member manages, then click ‘Save Draft’.

Let’s say you have saved 10 different messages as drafts for a holiday campaign. You now need to schedule these drafts to publish, taking into account other messages that might already be scheduled. Which tool would be most effective for this task?

  • Do not schedule them which will trigger Hootsuite to automatically assign a time

  • Use the Auto-Publisher, and set the cadence for everyone 12 hours.

  • to make it easier to generate ROI reports for key stakeholders
