New on Hootsuite’s App Directory: Visual Сontent Discovery and Сreation App IS Live
Hootsuite becomes a visual marketing tool with PromoRepublic integration! The biggest social media marketing platform now has access to a native graphics editor and template library with 100,000 post templates and images to discover your posts.
Hootsuite has always been the most powerful social media management tool:
- A wide range of networks to share your posts
- Scheduling and publishing
- Sourcing engaging curated content
- Responding to your followers
- Monitoring your progress with analytics
But there was a feature that Hootsuite was always missing – a graphics editor with an integrated post templates library. From now on their 15m+ users can discover and customize professional premade visual templates or create their own from scratch.
Why Does Visual Matter?
Pictures matter when you need to get your post noticed. It applies to all types of your posts:
- Engaging posts: quotes, polls, memes, GIFs (likes, comments, shares)
- Promotional posts: special offers, discounts, company news (clicks)
- Educational blog posts (clicks)
Your followers do not read captions, they perceive the message in your visual. They scroll through their feed and stop when their eyes find catchy image. It doesn’t matter how unique and great your content is, when it is lost among thousands of other posts.
“85% of marketers use visuals; 41% of marketers claim visuals are the most important form of content, more than blogging, videos or podcasts.”, Michael Stelzner, SMMW17.
What Was on Visual Market Yesterday
Indeed, you felt like a designer with Canva and it’s design templates, but you couldn’t manage your social media marketing like you can do with Buffer and Hootsuite.
You could create your own images with Pablo by Buffer and schedule them to all your social networks, but there are no pre-made posts as in Canva and PromoRepublic.
Hootsuite had its enhance free stock photo editor app, but unfortunately it is for mobile only.
Today the new visual app has officially launched. It means that you can work within one tool to manage all your work for social media: from discovering and customizing your visuals to scheduling and posting.
