Let’s discuss some apps that could be of great help to you.

𝟮.𝗕𝘂𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿-Buffer is your social media management tool on a budget. It is the most intuitive, affordable, and authentic way to reach more people on social media.
It allows you to schedule your posts in advance, saving a lot of time and freeing you for other tasks. Even if you might be busy on that day and time, this feature helps you ensure that your content is posted during the peak reach hours.
Another great feature of Buffer is that it provides precise market testing helping you identify whether your content is a hit or miss. Each brand’s audience and USP differs greatly from one another. With Buffer, you can find concrete answers as to what metrics are most important to boost your brand’s social media presence.
There should be a connection and balance between your different accounts. Buffer allows you to cross post, i.e., posting the same image with different captions on different platforms. This strategy helps you make sure you’re as visible as possible to your customer base. The more they see you, the better they’ll convert later on.
𝟯.𝗛𝗼𝗼𝘁𝘀𝘂𝗶𝘁𝗲 –Hootsuite is the best available option for social media analytics and is an incredibly useful application for managing social media network channels. It allows you to view multiple streams at once and monitor what customers are saying. You can post updates, read responses, schedule messages, view statistics, and much more with this single app.
No more remembering pesky passwords or having to go to each website individually.
Just like Buffer, Hootsuite also allows you to schedule posts in advance and monitor your brand’s reach at different times and among different audiences. It’s unique analytics feature gives you an in-depth view of how well your social media strategy is working. Furthermore, Hootsuite provides other extensive monitoring and reporting features that allow you to create professional-looking, printable reports on your business’ social media progress.
It also has an amazing plugin called Hootlet that allows you to share content with your followers at any time. When you find something worth sharing, all you have to do is click the hootlet button and the app will shorten the link, include a prominent snippet of the content and share it with your followers.
With Hootsuite, you can ‘listen’ to your customer base. It keeps a track of all key phrases and terms that users use in their post and may involve your area of expertise. Also, you can effectively manage your team and monitor their involvement in your brand’s social presence.
𝟰. 𝗦𝗽𝗿𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗦𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 –It is the right choice for businesses with small teams. It has a very well organised dashboard that separates subject matter into six distinct areas: Messages, Tasks, Feeds, Publishing, Discovery, and Reports and helps avoid confusion.
Another one of its features is that it provides a unified social stream which can be filtered on the basis of profiles. It also identifies keywords which might prove to be beneficial upon incorporation into your content. Similar to the other tools mentioned above, Sprout Social also allows scheduling of posts.
It provides real time analytics of all your social media accounts and helps you aggregate trends that may prove beneficial in understanding your audience.
