You can schedule in posts for multiple platforms so there isn’t a risk of forgetting to post. You can also use it to easily view analytics data from your social media channels and their performance. This includes engagement rate, follower growth and profile visits among many other tools. Another great thing about Hootsuite is that it has a “best time to publish” tool.
