As Twitter continues to become a most popular source of networking, communication, and aggregation, the list of tools available to help fully manage one or more Twitter accounts continues to grow. Although there are several options available online that are very similar, Timely seems to have refined all of the best available options in social media management, and added them to this one smooth aggregation tool. Never fear, Facebook personal and Fan page integration is also available on Timely.
Timely is another tool on the growing list of tweet schedulers that assist users in setting their tweets to launch based on the time of day when the probability of a click or re-tweet is highest. Timely uses an algorithm that helps to determine the best time of the day or night where most of your followers will see the tweet. This not only increased the chance of clicks, but also helps encourage re-tweets.
- Timely provides an easy user-interface that is minimalistic. Since many Twitter scheduler tools tend to be a bit chaotic, Timely’s smooth uncluttered face is a refreshing change.
- Timely has a browser plug in that makes it even easier to grab content from the net and schedule it for Twitter.
- Timely has a tab for Performance. Under this tab users can view their statistics on re-tweets, clicks, replies, and reach.
- Timely’s scheduling algorithm automatically spaces your tweets apart to prevent your account being flooded too quickly.
- Users can set up email alerts for Timely updates and Timely also sends friendly reminders to let you know you are running out, or are out of, scheduled tweets.
- Automatic Bit.ly URL shortening tool.
- Timely offers an unlimited amount of Twitter accounts, with unlimited tweet scheduling, to unlimited team members, for absolutely free.
- Timely offers paid accounts for users who want 24/7 email support.
How Does Timely Stack Up?
Although Timely appears minimalistic, it is still a full-bodied and highly capable tool for scheduling post to Twitter, Facebook personal accounts,and Facebook Fan Pages. Account setup and additions are a matter of one click integration in all cases, and this tool requires zero getting used to since it is entirely self-explanatory for even the least savvy user.
Alexa does show a significant upswing in users in the past three months and demographics remain with a strongly Hispanic, educated, female user-base. Their US traffic ranking is currently at #5009 and their user’s onsite time shows that many are taking advantage of the zero-cost options that Timely freely provides.
