lknSuite is a free online service to manage your social media accounts. This service helps you to schedule posts on all your social media simultaneously. The feature of ‘Streams’ lets you track your brand mention and prominence in all the social networks you have added. Further, the service also integrates a URL shortener so sharing links becomes more manageable. Todo Lists keep you out of the hassle of forgetting things. You can simply add important future events to the to-do list and lkSuite will email you when the event approaches.
lknSuite differs from other social media managers as it has a URL shortener and the means to track the social media presence of you or your brand. These feature help a lot if you want to make a good image of yourself or your brand on the social networks. The free plan of lknSuite lets you add 4 social accounts (enough for personal use), 2 scheduled posts and 2 RSS feeds at a time.
Let me show you what lknSuite can do with a better perspective. Make sure you try DrumUp, if lknSuite doesn’t attract you.
How to Schedule a Post on lknSuite
You can Schedule a post on lknSuite by clicking List Scheduled Posts on the side panel. But before that, make sure you have added social media profiles in My Social Networks. There you have to authorize all your social media to allow access of lknSuite.
In List Schedule Post, click on Compose Message. You can now write the post and add a scheduling date on the bottom. Additionally, attachments and link sharing options are also provided. The Twitter Country Targeting option tailors your twitter post with respect to the country you choose. Pretty neat, right?
Compounded to all the above, features to make drafts in advance and RSS feeds are also available under Publisher. Todo lists can be scheduled under Tools to email a reminder when an event approaches. Click on Add New Tasks to make one. The Twitter TT List shows you the trending Twitter Hashtags so you can increase your presence on Twitter by using them.
How to Track your Social Media using lknSuite
lknSuite has Streams where one can track the news feed and timeline of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social accounts they have added. Different elements can be added from different platforms to make a custom stream panel. In my case, I chose to track my Facebook timeline and my twitter home. You can directly interact with the streams using lknSuite. If you use Twitter, a very important stream to add is ‘Mentions’ which can track the mentions of you or your brand on tweets all around the world.
How to Shorten URL using lknSuite
This free social media manager service also helps to shorten lengthy URL. To do this, click on URL Shortener>Shorten New URL and enter the URL you want to shorten. Shortening the URL makes it easier to share long complex links. But the main reason you should use shortened links is because it allows you to track how much the link has been accessed. You can view the statistics of the shortened link in Your Links under URL Shortener.
lknSuite is a very simple and easy to use free social media manager. The features of customizable streams and an inbuilt URL Shortener make lknSuite outshine other such services. The only drawback with the free plan of lknSuite is the exclusion of making teams. Adding a few friends to make a team on lknSuite would have it easier for a user to manage his 4 accounts 24X7. Despite its small drawback, this lknSuite definitely deserves 5 stars.
