What is Social Jukebox? Can It Boost Your Social Media Marketing?
In a previous post, I talked about the basics on how to use Twitter in marketing.
An online marketer has tonnes of things to manage. Yet we are familiar with how much time it takes to curate content, plan and schedule posts.
Managing one social media account can be really time-consuming, let alone juggling two or more in various platforms.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could lessen the time spent on social media but reap optimal results in terms of getting followers and sales?
The great thing is that there are various tools out there to help you with your social media management : Hootsuite, MeetEdgar, Crowdfire, JustRetweet, ViralContentBuzz, just to name a few.
If you can relief yourself of the time-consuming task of planning/scheduling your posts, you would be giving yourself more time in managing other areas of your business such as planning your blog content, writing your posts and generating more traffic.
Honestly, I don’t use any of the tools stated above after I came across Social Jukebox.
What is Social Jukebox?
Social Jukebox started as TweetJukebox to help with the management of users’ tweets in Twitter.
Then in October 2016, it’s name was changed to Social Jukebox to reflect the addition of two more social media platforms.
So now users can schedule their posts not only for Twitter, but also for Facebook and LinkedIn.
Jukeboxes are something like folders that you create within your account, which contain the posts/tweets you want to schedule.
You can set your jukebox ‘on’ or ‘off’ so that the content will be posted according to the schedule you choose.
A good thing about Social Jukebox is that it provides a free subscription with no obligation, meaning that you can remain a free member as long as you wish.
With any free memberships, it comes with limitations of course, as you are only able to use Social Jukebox for one social media account with two jukeboxes.
If you have accounts in Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, the ‘Advanced’ subscription might be the right fit for you.
How Social Jukebox Has Worked For Me?
I started using Social Jukebox ‘actively’ for my Twitter account towards the end of 2016 when my followers stood at slightly less than 2,000.
It’s February 2017 as I am writing this post and my Twitter followers have grown to about 2,900. That’s almost 1,000 increase in followers in just three months. The best part is these are targeted audience for my niche!
Now, I’d be lying if I said there’s no work involved in getting those increase in followers.
What I do each week is to plan for content from various sources that I can use in my tweets. I understand some people plan way ahead but planning for a week is just my personal preference.
Once you create a jukebox, you fill it with some posts.
You don’t have to set your jukebox to be ‘on’ everyday, as you are able to select the days and time period for which your content will be posted.
As an example, I have found more of my targeted audience to hang out in Twitter towards the end of the week so I schedule my posts from Thursday to Monday.
One of the coolest features in Social Jukebox is its Chrome extension. A Chrome user, this is great for me because downloading the extension allows me to scour for content on the Internet and save some articles/news into my Jukebox as future tweets.
What’s even better is that you are able to monitor the clicks on these tweets derived from Google in your Social Jukebox members area. So the analytics would give you an idea of what kind of content bodes well with your audience.
I’ve been using Social Jukebox for some months and have seen increase in my followers, without much effort on my part.
I have seen the number of my followers increase even when I was using the free subscription. However, the increase was more significant as I signed up for the Advanced subscription option.
The posts that I schedule were not entirely from my blog. To provide more value to my audience, I also put up articles by other bloggers that I find would be beneficial to my fellow online marketers.
I also recommend products or services which I have used and find useful to my audience.
All being said, the key to increasing followers, I believe, is to first and foremost, provide value to your audience.
