Social Media Hammer

In 2017, I came up with the idea for a Hootsuite bulk upload csv automation tool. The concept of Social Media Hammer is, “Some of your best social media content is on your website. Use Social Media Hammer to automatically create a 300 post bulk upload CSV file for Hootsuite, Social Champ, Social Pilot, Buffer / bulk.ly, Agora Pulse, Social Oomph, Sprout Social, Crowdfire, Meet Edgar, or CoSchedule – in 5 minutes or less! User defined post times or randomly generated. Automatically add hashtags and website link.”

This is my third app development. The first was Link Spin Build and the second was Watchtower. Feel free to visit the site by clicking the image below. Let me know what you think.
