MeetEdgar is very similar to Hootsuite, with the added advantage that you can save your social media updates after you have posted them, thus allowing you to push out regular updates on the same content, having to re-create them. It also has a great calendar feature meaning you can very clearly schedule your social media for the days & week ahead.
