When learning how to position social media as a marketing tool, it is easy to become overwhelmed. This is why everybody needs a Toolbox filled with Social Media Management Tools. Wonderful applications, websites, and services that make it possible to manage social media 24/7.
Of course there are hundreds more than what I have listed, so if you have a favorite that you don’t see here, share it in the comments below!
1. HootSuite – A wonderfully sophisticated, dynamic, and useful social media dashboard that is easy to use!
Some of my favorite features: post scheduling, Hootlet (Chrome Extension), and keyword search streams.
2. HyperAlerts – If you are managing a Facebook fan page, this is a necessity—HyperAlerts sends you email notifications when there are new postings/comments on a page!
Favorite feature: Daily digest email function.
1. Crowdbooster – A measurement and optimization tool that tracks and measures engagement levels on your social media channels.
Favorite Feature: Optimum posting time suggestions.
2. Tweriod – A brilliant application that tells you when your Twitter followers are online and active. Using their recommended windows, you can schedule content for times that you’re most likely to get engagement.
Of course there are many, many more than what I have listed here, but these are some of my personal must-haves.
