Today AlternativeTo has approved a listing for AutomatePlus. It was submitted as an alternative to Buffer and HootSuite.
While AutomatePlus is still in beta and has yet to integrate the full array of social networks offered by Buffer or Hootsuite, there is a strong foundation that offers a fresh approach to how we manage our social campaigns.
The two driving features being the AutomatePlus social posting tool are:
- Lists – the ability group your social posts that follow a certain format into lists.For example, if you were an Appliance Retailer, you might tweet a quick appliance maintenance or repair tip on Tuesdays and Fridays.You also might promote a product sale every Monday.
In addition, you decided to provide industry news on Thursdays and Saturdays.
All of this is easy to manage with the power of lists.
- Random Post Times – there’s nothing more obviously robotic than a Twitter account that tweets at the exact same time every day.AutomatePlus allows you to choose a time range for your posts. From there, all posts will be scheduled at a random time within your specified time range.
Oh, did we mention that it’s all FREE?
AutomatePlus is still in beta and will be for some time. During this time, we allow our users to help us shape the future of the product. And what better way to say thanks than to remove the price tag!
