The tip about posting a video in all programs is definitely something that I would not have thought about because everything seems to go through YouTube these days that it seems unnecessary to use anything else; but I can see how it would help spread a page. I also appreciate the tip about bringing back up relevant articles/posts from the past. Even if some readers have already received the information, new readers will not have and it’s valuable still.

    Edgar lets you make your own content categories which means you could keep tabs on the precise forms of posts you’re releasing; this ensures you don’t overwhelm your followers with similar kinds of posts again and again.

    Manage content categories and prevent repeat posts with social networking scheduling tool Edgar.

    You may schedule repeat posts indefinitely, which means that your content schedule never runs dry. Plus Edgar enables you to upload custom images for the Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn posts.

    While you create your content library, improve your schedule aided by the categories you need to release so when. Then let Edgar care for the remainder.

    Build a content library, update categories and schedule posts in Edgar.

    Leveraging a social media marketing scheduler like Edgar has saved me time, helped me grasp the picture as a whole in terms of my social media strategy and allowed us to remain on top of my game in terms of delivering valuable content to Fire Nation.
