A few months ago I discovered that I didn’t need to be on Twitter to tweet. I had no clue that there were sites and programs that I could use to tweet instead of logging into my Twitter account and doing everything from there. Crazy I know that it took me so long! For the past few months, I’ve been experimenting with different Twitter/Social Media management software (both paid and free) to find one that was a good fit for me. I found the perfect Social Media Dashboard for me- MarketMeSuite.
MarketMeSuite has been a dream to use! I was always struggling with the free Social Media management sites that would never send my scheduled tweets or be constantly freezing up. The worst was one software that deleted a week’s worth of scheduled tweets! I am happy with MarketMeSuite and am sticking with it. I’ve been using it for about a month now on a daily basis and am loving it.
Some of the unique features of MarketMeSuite are as follows:

Wow! See what I mean how much MarketMeSuite can do? When I first downloaded MarketMeSuite, I was a bit nervous because I wasn’t sure if I would be able to figure it out. On the Welcome page that popped up, I watched a 20 minute video tutorial on getting my account set up. It was actually really simple to do. I added both my Twitter and my Facebook fan page to my account. However, I mainly use MarketMeSuite just for Twitter. Facebook is now frowning on people using third party apps so I do all my Facebook updates manually now.
I use MarketMeSuite multiple times a day, seven days a week. My dashboard has panes set up so I can easily see what is going on my account with one quick glance. I have a pane for my @mentions, Direct Messages, My Tweets, Search (for keyword of choice and I’m always changing mine) and my Home Timeline.
My favourite feature is definitely the Tweet Scheduling. I just click the Calendar button and type in my tweet, pick the date and time and hit schedule. It will also show me all my scheduled tweets for that day, week, month and even year! I like being able to see what I have in there already so that I don’t send out my tweets to close together.
I also like all the options available when I want to reply to someone’s tweet. I can reply, DM, Twitter Retweet, Follow, Add to Favourites, and more. I get a daily email with all my @mentions just in case I missed one while checking my dashboard.
I have the branded tweets feature set up so that all my tweets show that I’m tweeting from simplystacie.net. The only thing I wish that I could do is have my scheduled tweets be branded as well. Those still show up as me tweeting from MarketMeSuite. The live tweets are the only ones that I can brand.
Dotted Tweets are pretty cool! You can colour code the tweets you want to reply to and it will show up separately in your Dotted Tweets section. It kind of reminds me of separating your email into different folders depending on what action needs to be taken.
The Reply Campaigns look interesting, but I wasn’t sure how to really use it for my site. I can see how it would be good for a business owner though.
You can purchase MarketMeSuite for $34.99/year or $5.99/month. I prefer the yearly option and it’s well worth it in my opinion. I would happily pay to use it for the convenience and how much easier it has made my daily tasks.
I don’t have any complaints about MarketMeSuite and so far all my scheduled tweets have gone out and everything is running really smoothly. It’s a fantastic Social Media Dashboard that I will continue to use and recommend to others!
