Many of us spend many hours working on repetitive social media tasks, using valuable time doing the same task every time we want to post something.
Here are 10 of the best tools we found to make your job, easier…
#1 Notifier – Lead Building
Notifier is one of the easiest and quickest ways to grow traffic by tagging those relevant in your most recent blog share. It doesn’t matter if you wrote the blog or if it is someone else’s, you can tag all those relevant to your post.
How does it work?
Go to Notifier and enter in your blog post link, let it generate your link, then select how many of the users you want to mention, and click “tweet now.” It is just that simple to tag people in your next tweet to help grow traffic and gain engagements!
#2 Leadfeeder – Lead Building
Leadfeeder is a tool for any B2B company that wants to know who is viewing their website and what part they are viewing. As long as you have a Google Analytics account, you can start building quality leads to increase sales.
How does it work?
Go to Leadfeeder and sign up either for a 30-day free trial or one for one of their multiple packages, then connect your Google analytics account. From there they allow you to start seeing which companies have visited your website, and what services they are interested in or have viewed.
#3 Socedo – Lead Building
Socedo, similar to Leadfeeder, is intended to connect you with users based on their interests. Socedo differs by allowing you to use it both on Twitter and LinkedIn, and doesn’t require an article to find these users. They also offer automatic engagements via direct message, scoring leads, and continuing your contact with users via email.
How does it work?
Go to Socedo, and sign up for a free trial. They also have the option to get a price quote, because they customize their pricing based off of your size and needs. From there, you enter in the hashtags you want to use to connect with users of that interest. After this, you will be able to follow and interact with these users to generate more leads and send them towards your specific landing page.
#4 Yotpo – ecommerce
Customer recommendations are one of the most popular ways to increase sales and generate more traffic. Yotpo helps collect reviews from existing customers by incentives such as bonuses or coupons. It collects them in a database that allows you easy access to show them on your website and social networks.
Besides sharing the reviews on social platforms, they use Inline SEO to load your reviews when someone is searching keywords of your content. It then directs them to your store and allows you to grow more organic sales traffic.
#5 rFactr – ecommerce
rFactr is one of the only tools designed for social ecommerce allowing you to scale your social media operations. Their program SocialPort, allows sales teams to easily find content to share that will impact their buyers experience.
It allows one place for both sales and marketing teams to track and analyze their social networks and customer experiences. You are able to monitor the interactions you have with users and confirm your brand consistency. One of the big pluses with SocialPort is the ability to have human interaction. Rather than using a template interaction, it connects leads directly with people within your business. Allowing the users to get a personal connection with you.
#6 Shopify – ecommerce
Shopify is possibly one of the largest and most recognizable platforms in ecommerce. There is a reason they work with companies such as, Tesla, Google, and Wikipedia.
Shopify allows you to sell on the majority of social platforms, and do it conveniently. Other than having an online store, Shopify offers diverse services to sell more; they have Facebook, Twitter, and even Pinterest buy buttons or stores. They also offer a Facebook Messenger add-on, which allows customers to browse and buy directly through messenger. It is also one great place to stay in touch with customers whether it is questions or concerns; you have easy access to communicate with them.
The Social Habit says 32% of customers who reach out expect a response within 30 minutes, and 42% expect one within 60 minutes. With the Facebook add-on, you can now respond with much easier access and have products ready to assist if needed.
#7 Quuu – Content Curating
Quuu is an automated posting tool, but differs from most of them. It creates human-crafted and approved posts, allowing a more personal feel for your viewers. It is pretty simple too, all you do is connect your Buffer account, choose which topics are most relevant to your audience, and then Quuu sends the human-curated content to your Buffer account. From there, you can edit the posts if they aren’t exactly what you want
#8 Crate – Content Curating
Crate is pretty similar to Quuu, but offers users something different. Contrary to Quuu, Crate allows you to be highly specific about the content you want.
You will start with making your “crate” filled with the topics you want your posts to be based around. From there, you are able to add hashtags and positive keywords to specify minor subjects of that “crate.” You can also add negative keywords, so the posts generated will avoid certain subjects.
Crate then will create a stream of posts for you to share. You can drop these posts easily into your Buffer account.
#9 ClearVoice – Content Curating
Sometimes all we want is a simple way to search a content library filled with posts we like to share. Well, ClearVoice is that, or it is more; that is up to you.
On the free side of things, ClearVoice uses algorithmic recommendations based on keywords and human contributors. Through this, you can search this entirely free content library filled with content that is worth sharing on your social platforms.
If you are looking for more, ClearVoice also offers packages for a full workflow and management platform, including content creation and distribution tools.
#10 Slack – Team Communication
There are many messaging apps out there, including the old-school email based communication. However, in an industry where things are constantly changing and you need to be able to stay in contact with your team, Slack allows easy team communication.
Slack offers organized team conversations called “channels,” which you can customize for a project, team, or just a topic; you are also able to make a channel private for information that needs to stay within a small group. If you are just talking with one person, you can send an absolutely private and secure direct message to anyone on your team. Finally, you can drop and share files, including PDF’s, documents, or spreadsheets. Even Google Drives, Dropbox, and Box links can be synced to Slack messages.
Slack has helped reduce internal emails by 48.6%, allowing for you to stay ahead of the to-dos instead of waiting for an email to be received. It also has reduced meetings by 25.1%, ultimately allowing more time to work, rather than talk about work.
