- Definitely Tweetdeck. If you're running an early or medium-stage startup, you should be monitor all mentions of your brand or site. I have a column for any Product Hunt mention, which helps me monitor sentiment, see what people are sharing, and discover new PH community members to chat with. 😊
- IFTTT - Automates your entire app/internet-connected things catalogue. You can easily set UI friendly IF statements to automate an action on twitter if a separate action occurs on instagram for example. It's also great for personal life automated triggers.
I've been using IFTTT since it came out ages ago, and it's one of the first things I install on any new phone. I use it as the connective tissue for all my smart home products and apps. You can do amazing things with it.
Support is non existent along with technical user information.
- I'd say a dedicated social media monitoring tool would be a nice addition to every marketer's toolkit. Despite some minor drawbacks like limited historical data, I think there's still plenty of data you could benefit from thanks to our tool. While it's impossible to reply to mentions directly within the dashboard, you can be easily redirected to the source of the mention by clicking the "Engage" button. One of my personal favourite features is the Slack integration that streamlines all the mentions the tool picks up into a selected channel.
Brand24 is a great app, especially if you're a business prone to any type of social media critics (like every type of business, nowadays?). It's just a much better way to know what people are saying about your brand then searching it through Google.
A great tool that helps me understand where and how people discuss certain topics like "Alternative to [MyCompetitorName]", "How to [Solve the problem I sell a solution to]" so I can engage personally and try to convert.
- Buffer - the one that saves us a lot of time. Social media posts scheduling on autopilot across multiple social media accounts. We queue up the ready social media posts in advance so that we can focus on other things. I use Followerwonk evaluate the best times when our followers are most active and set the Buffer schedule accordingly.
I've used so many CRMs in the past, and have also looked at lots of others too. I was first attracted to Salesflare by the clean design and ease of use, but then was very impressed with just how powerful it is. It integrates so well with Gmail, that it just became a natural extension of how I work. Also the developers have been offering great support too. I highly recommend Salesflare.
Love the way Salesflare automates your daily work with the CRM, it's really comfortable and saves a lot of time, at the same time providing all the most important CRM functionalities.
- Vlad Calus made this productDefinitely one of the best choice for marketing teams that are heavily focused on social. Planable is the most visual platform to create social media campaigns, collaborate on posts, exchange and give feedback, get posts approved and schedule to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
I've used this for some time and love the platform. It's simple to use and has been expanded to cover all the main social channels we manage for clients.
I like two features: inviting teammates to approve posts and suggest edits, saving posts to public Facebook and Twitter pages that I do not own, so that these can be chosen to be published or not by the page's owner on their Planable account.
- For every marketer and non-developer to build new 'apps' by connecting existing ones. You can connect everything what has open API. ex. Client send an e-mail -> Save a pdf attached on google docs -> Send e-mail/name to mailchimp -> Send an e-mail sequence directly from google sheet etc.
Their design is excellent. Behind the scenes its very technical, but the user experience is smooth and easy on the eyes. It does such a great job of taking actions and information in one app and bringing it to your app of choice.
We use this mostly to automate our email marketing campaigns by pulling data from our HubSpot CRM into Active Campaign for our email drips. Among a million other things.. amazing product!
- It's my to-do list, collaborative project management tool, database, P&L, reporting system, dashboard, SEO tracker, content management tool and more. You can do everything with it.
- Attila Gajdics made this productMarketers are active users of the app, but I'm biased, I'm one of its makers, so let me rather quote others about it: "You can use it for content marketing, build up case-studies, make overviews of third-party reviews or collect other relevant information to send to prospects. Or to just keep up with inspiring stuff you find around the internet." See it among other great tools here: https://blog.salesflare.com/the-...
- There's a category of email apps for sending newsletters. Vocus.io is different. It's for Gmail. It could be for mass mailings (mail merge, etc), but it's more of an everyday tool for me. We engage with leads and prospects via email. This tool helps me understand if they're opening and clicking the emails
