Hootsuite/ Buffer App. These apps let you schedule your tweets, Facebook posts, Google +1s and even Instagram posts. I personally like Hootsuite more because it’s free for up to 3 social media profiles whereas Buffer is free for one. Both of these are apps you can use on both desktop and mobile so they make it easy to get those tweets scheduled while you’re not at your computer.
Choose a Call-to-Action (CTA) Button: The CTA button is where your prospect takes action and enters their email address so you can market to them. If you want someone’s email address, make sure your button says something like Subscribe or Join and that it clearly explains what they will receive. People are more likely to take action if they see a big benefit.
Set your Google Calendar up to tweet whenever you want it. First, click edit in your Twitter profile, then click on Bookmarks and finally on Google Calendars. If you don’t already have a calendar called Twitter, create one, then set that as your default calendar. Now you can schedule tweets directly from your profile page.
Find Places to Post Your Content (Your Editorial Calendar) : Start creating an editorial calendar. This is just a spreadsheet that maps out when you’re going to post. You can do it manually or with any other kind of calendar tool.
