What is SocialBu?
SocialBu is a social media marketing and scheduling tool designed to help you increase brand awareness and traffic to your social media profiles. It is a slick competitor for Buffer, Hootsuite, Zoho and the many other social media management tools available.
In short, SocialBu saves you time. Once you have connected your various accounts, you can write one post and share it to ALL of your social accounts with one click. You can schedule posts to publish at a later date/time. You can choose which posts to share where. You can even set up a feed from your blog, to automatically share your blog posts to your social accounts.
It covers all of the major channels including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and Tumblr.
