No one has ever said: “I really like @JoeBloggs, he tweets a whole week’s worth of messages on Monday morning”. To keep your audience engaged you’re going to want to have an even and consistent presence, rather than bottle necking all of your content into a two hour window. But you can’t be online all day, so how can you manage this feat?

If you’re not already using Buffer, you should start. It’s honestly brilliant. The Freemium version will probably take care of your initial needs and it saves you loads of time by sharing you content for you. But best of all it does this when your audience is most receptive so more people see your posts. So rather than hitting the tweet button you hit the Buffer button instead, type your message and link and let Buffer take care of the rest.
Hootsuite can help you fill the gaps Buffer may leave. Again it’s a Freemium, application so will cost you nothing if you don’t want it to. Hootsuite will allow you to queue up your content, rather than sending it all out at the same time on a Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. Spend a little time once a week filling your queues on Hootsuite and your content distribution will be handled for you while you get on with running your business.
If there is a blog out there that your hold in high regard, one that you regularly read and quite often share with your social audience, you may want to consider using IFTTT. It’s a very simple piece of software that allows you to automatically tweet and share blog content by monitoring the blogs RSS feed. Takes moments to set up and once it’s there you have a spare slot on your to-do list.
Similar to using IFTTT for monitoring an RSS feed, RoundTeam will monitor Twitter #hashtags for you and retweet whichever ones you ask it to. Be warned, for popular #hashtags this can get quickly out of hand. But done correctly, and with suitable rules in place, you can add a steady stream of retweets to your Twitter account and get kudos from you audience for doing so.
