Backatyoumedia... does my business page. So I do use some of their material, but I "handle" the scheduling. The rest are my own posts that I can manually upload to backatyoumedia and then they send it on over to twitter, linked in.

I love hootsuite.  I use them more to get my Instagram posts sent using files from my computer.  I also use buffer for posting to G+.  When I was doing scheduled posts, I used hootsuite.  I'd setup 4 windows for postings and have a queue of articles automatically populated.

There are many platforms to use and Hoot-suite is probably the best for my business.  I am not a fan of anything automated as I think it looses the message and it doesn't appear genuine or personal about you which is what social media should be about. 

I see a lot of agents using auto posting companies and it looks just like a canned message.  I think it's a good way to loose followers and not accomplish anything at all.  

Create your own voice and message.

I use Hootsuite with Blogger and set the time to share at peak hours, then reshare in a mix. In general I post my information 10% of the time and share information that I find is quality 75%  and 10% share partners and 5 is random Hootsuite and Backatyou are not much good- they fail to post images or gifs or short video which is want drives traffic today Title of my post plus shortenedURLxy doesn't get much interest

My main blog is on WordPress. The free Jetpack plugin includes a module named Publicize. Publicize can announce new blog posts on social media including Facebook, Twitter, G+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr.

I use Hootsuite to check my incoming social media channels from a central dashboard. It also shows that my outgoing blog post announcements are working on all channels.

Not sure what you mean by 'make your own' other than say I share other posts I think are good or useful. 

I use Hootsuite & Friends+Me which is the only site that works with G profile pages.

So back in Sept 2016, someone asked this same question about Back at you Media. G picked it up & when I went to look at Back at You's site, there was the AR question. Everything we type is getting picked up .....

I think you may have things a bit confused.

Hootsuite is a scheduling platform (which I use).  You still need to create your own updates.  It saves you a lot of time.

You may find this article I wrote on hootsuite helpful.
