    Tweetdeck is another great tool to manage your twitter feed. Create streams with specific keywords/hashtags/handles to stay on top of whatever you need while you're on twitter.

    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. It's a great choice for social media managers that: - collaborate on their posts - brainstorm ideas - ask for approval - manage multiple pages/clients in the same time You can easily sign up at - planable.io

    Mention is great if you're looking for a social media tool that helps you stay on top of all mentions for your brand on social media. Think of it like Google alerts for social media.

    This is a slightly biased recommendation but I reckon a social media monitoring tool is a must-have in a social media manager's toolkit. There's more to this tool than just monitoring keyword mentions and you can make use of analytical features measuring the performance of your brand on social media with metrics such as a number of mentions, social media reach, engagement such as likes, shares, and comments, etc. You won't be able to schedule and publish content with it but it can be used in terms of social media management nevertheless.

    I might be a little biased, but OneUp is a Meet Edgar alternative that works with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google Plus - at a fraction of the price. With OneUp, you can easily schedule evergreen posts to be recycled for a specific number of times, at set intervals. For example, if you want to share your latest blog post once a month for the next 3 months, you can do that in about 10 seconds. Like OneUp, MeetEdgar allows you to recycle your evergreen posts, but it requires that you upload posts to a queue. The more content you add to your queue, the less frequently your posts will resurface. Depending on what you're looking for, MeetEdgar could be a great solution. However, many people just want their posts to be recycled at a set interval, like "once a month for the next 3 months", without having to do the mental calendar math: "If I have 56 posts in my queue and I add my blog post, how often will it be republished if I am sharing 3 posts a day, but adding 2-5 more each week?"

    It's a bit pricey but it;s worth the splurge. I manage 5 clients and charge them a "systems fee" to help me cover the cost. This is the easiest calendar tool for social media managers on the market.

    Mobile security is more and more important nowadays, that’s why I think no matter who you are, what you do. You will need an app to protect your phone! I am using this app called ‘AppLock’, which is amazing because it can lock all of my apps, images even videos. This app is always on my list when it comes to app recommendation. The one thing that I like the most about this app is that it can take photos of the person who’s trying to unlock your phone! This feature is really funny because I always got the intruder selfie notification from my kids. They are trying really hard to unlock my phone for video games. If you are a cautious people, you really do need one of this app.
