Post Planner is one of the social media tools to use without breaking the bank.
As for Josh Parkinson and Slav Ivanov, it turned out to be a match made in heaven, er, Facebook. The two soon launched Post Planner, a scheduling and content curation app for businesses on Facebook. Since 2011, the app has published over 20 million posts.
Stay active. As long as your posts are good, you can share more than that. Automation tools, such as Post Planner can help you schedule and distribute, allowing you to plan a day’s worth of posts in 30 minutes.
Post Planner lets you find and use images and updates that have already been proven to go viral on Facebook.This means you don’t have to guess at which posts might get engagement, but instead choose posts that are relevant to your audience and that have been proven popular in the past.
Post Planner helps provide consistent and targeted posts that increase the number of fans who see each post and its reach.The Facebook content engine generates material on trending topics with organized search and library tools, status update ideas, and an option to queue updates for Facebook Pages.
The trending content feature is the newest addition to Post Planner’s already popular “Content Engine”, which allows users to add content feeds from blogs, Twitter profiles and Facebook Pages and organize them into custom folders, a la Google Reader. Post Planner is the only content curation app to pull from social feeds as well as blogs.
Mixergy's been using it and it finally got action on our FB page and our Twitter followers grew.

"No questions. Just want to say I love this tool! Makes me look like a social media beast!" Lyman
"You guys are just great! A year ago when I said goodbye to our media agency I was quite scared. Your blog taught me all I know about social media, and your paid app enabled me to run it better than the agency did. We're soon introducing our website and blog as well. Through your blog and app, I've got the inspiration and confidence to try shortstack, mailchimp. I don't read so many blogs to learn social media, just follow post planner.I wish all the best to Post Planner, may your company becomes the #1 in social media management." Atiqul Bari Chowdhury, MEENA HERBAL

"You have no idea how much I appreciate the fast turnaround when I ask a question. You guys are awesome! I followed the instructions below and now I can see the Settings and Insights. By the way, your Insights page is so much easier to read than Facebook's. I can easily see which types of posts are the most popular and the time of day that's popular, too.You have a very satisfied customer! :)" Delaney Diamond
"I love Post Planner. One of my favorite tools for sure!" Angela Paige

“I am a very creative person. I write books, I love writing articles and blogs, I am a Pisces (creative by nature lol). But, when it comes to Facebook Status posts I sometimes draw a blank. It's even more difficult when I’ve tried over and over again to ENGAGE my people and no one says anything. So I wanted to say thank you for your Status Ideas Engine. It's helping me out a lot! My brain doesn't hurt as much now and engagement on my posts is up dramatically since I started using them.I hope these questions GET my people involved because its starting to feel really lonely over here." Kristi Ambrose
"The main reason I chose Post Planner was so I could easily find content to share that will do well, and schedule it quickly." Katie
"Before using Post Planner, scheduling content, and most importantly finding content, was a long winded process. However, after using the tool for a short time I noticed how efficient it was at helping me to identify the most popular social media content and allowing me to schedule this out to my Facebook page in just a few clicks.
I now use Post Planner on a daily basis which has helped increase engagement on my page and has doubled my email list with the use of their new “sharebar” with email optin.
I started writing content for Post Planner and enjoyed interacting with them so much that I decided to join the team!"Ravi

"I'm just emailing to say a huge THANK YOU! Post Planner is actually the most significant thing to happen to my business in a very long time. I really can't believe how much it has changed how I am working.
Post Planner means I am now posting three times per day every day of the week. And what's more amazing is that I've scheduled all this content in a day and a half, how fast is that :)Fantastic prize!!" Jane Rapin
"Being able to get my posts out everyday while only writing it once has been a huge time saver! Even my copy/paste was taking 2 or more hours every day. Now, 5 minutes (tops) then my posts go out and I don't have to think about it.
This gives me the extra time to visit my groups and actually interact with people...much better overall than random ad and link posting!
Keep up the good work!Fan for life," Kary
"I tried HootSuite but found more support with Post Planner regarding questions for setup and any problems experienced. HootSuite is a great program in that it spans several social sites.

The tool indirectly allows me to reach more people and do it much more efficiently." Bonnie McDonough

In fact, I'm spending my time now responding and replying instead of posting. I let your wonderful software do that! Oh and my FB ad budget has been scaled back because of the engagement levels I'm actually afraid of growing too fast. That's right....you read correctly. I'm afraid of growing too fast sir.
