The Best Content Mix Through Category Based Scheduling

You should post a mix of various types of content on all your social profiles. Nobody likes it if you’re too self-promotional or only post a specific type of content. In SocialBee you assign each post to a specific content category, so then it’s easy for you to schedule based on categories, rather than individual posts. Your feed has never looked better! Read more about category based evergreen scheduling here.

Save Time With Evergreen Posting

Don’t waste time scheduling the same posts again and again. Be it for your blog posts that you spent so much time crafting, for the curated content you found, or for those nice timeless quotes, if a content category is set to be Evergreen, we’ll keep recycling that content until you want to, so you don’t have to reschedule it, and so your social profiles will never be empty again.

Expire Evergreen Posts at a Specific Date (Coming Soon)

Do you want to promote a specific event? Well, there’s no point in posting about it once it’s over. With expiring posts you can easily say you want posts to only be posted until a specific date.

Expire Evergreen Posts After a Specific Number of Posts (Coming Soon)

Don’t want to keep sharing a post forever? You think that three (or any other number of) times is enough to make a point? Just make the post expire after a specific number of times it was posted, and don’t worry about unscheduling it manually.

Have the Best Post for Each Social Network With Post Variants (Coming Soon)

Tweak each post so it best fits the best practices for each network, but still keep it linked to a common post.

Posting

Post Directly on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn

With SocialBee, you can post directly on Twitter (Profiles), Facebook (Profiles, Pages you manage, and Groups you’re an Administrator of), and LinkedIn (Profiles and Company Pages you’re an Administrator of). Your posts will look great on all the platforms!

Post on Google+ and Instagram Through our Buffer Integration

You can post on Google+ and Instagram by connecting them to your Buffer account, and then to SocialBee. Even a Free Buffer account will do.

Full Control with Separate Schedule for Each Profile

See All Future Posts in a Visual Calendar (Coming Soon)

See on a calendar-like view which are the exact posts you’ll share next so you can make sure there’s a good balance and no empty spots.

Use Share Once Categories for Ephemeral Posts

Not all posts are meant to be recycled and shared again. Set a Content Category to Share Once if it has posts that are time sensitive, news, or if you just feel it’s enough to just share them once.

Post Time Sensitive Content at Specific Time

Need to have an exact post that’s posted at a very specific time? You can easily do so – and then either add it to an Evergreen Content Category for recycling or just share it that one time and it’s done.

Post Previews (Coming Soon)

Not all surprises are good. See exactly how each post will look like on each social network.
