Its easy to use, a great way to get quick bite-size pieces of information to your customer base and tweets are now being indexed in Google. However, many businesses don’t have time to tweet multiple times a day, or simply put, they make a Twitter account and forget about it. Luckily, there are Twitter tools that let you schedule tweets. Instead of remembering to tweet every day, a business owner could simply take a small amount of time out of his or her Monday to write and schedule tweets for the whole week. This makes using Twitter much less time consuming but the business is still using the social network to its advantage. Here are 5 Twitter applications that allow users to schedule tweets provided by an article on SheGeeks.net.

Using Twitter tools like these that allow you to schedule your tweets will help your business generate more of an online presence and activity on your Twitter account without using up all of your valuable time. However, don’t use tweet schedulers for spamming your followers with multiple tweets at once or the same tweets every day. Schedule your tweets throughout the day and don’t always make them advertisements. Use tweets to make announcements about new products or services, hold contests and giveaways, alert followers of new blog posts or videos and hold sales or distribute coupon codes. Ask a question and have your followers tweet you the answer or provide them with interesting and useful information. Spamming followers with advertisements 6 times a day will cause people to lose interest and un-follow you. Once you begin using one of these great Twitter tools in your social media marketing campaign, you will begin to see the positive impact regular Twitter use can make on your business.
