A really wide stratum of society is now using social media software for everyday needs. SEO, Internet marketing, webmasters, bloggers, and many other people are using it every day. Being among these users I decided to make out what are the most efficient tools in this sphere, and make a small list of the five most commonly used ones.
I will tell you at once that these tools are the ones I personally preferred, and I am not claiming them to be the best ones for your own need or advertise them. I will show what I am using them for, go through their most bright and profitable features, and help you decide whether you need them or not.
1) Hootsuite. I suppose you have already heard about it, if you are interested in the topic. It is one of the most effective and well-considered tools for social networking management, and includes managing multiple profiles, with a very easy-to-use and comprehensive interface. You can schedule messages, tweets and other things in order to make the most of it. Tracking brand mentions is also available, which gives you the most exact stats ever, and you have an ability to analyze social media traffic.
A very nice tool, in fact it does two thirds of all tasks I need from a program like that in general.
2) UberVU – also a great tool for almost the same purposes as the previous one. I have been using it for a long time, but now I am not – only because I have found how to manage with my tasks not using it. Is even more comprehensible than Hootsuite is, but the last one has some additional functions, which are absent in UberVU. Yet, UberVU is a perfect software for its tasks.
3) PageLever. My specialized tool for analyzing, scheduling and managing profiles in Facebook. We all know that Facebook is important and is one of the main social media sites in the Web. PageLever gives a great analytics level – its creators promise it and it is really so. A lot of respectable customers like Intel and YouTube rely on PageLever, and personally I use it in order to collect and analyze the data on Facebook. It costs its money – trust me.
4) TweetSpinner – one more specialized tool of mine for managing Twitter accounts. In fact, it gives you the rights of Twitter God – you can automatically de-spam and archive your DM box, there is an option of archiving all direct messages. The rotation (oh yeah!) of Twitter profiles, changes of their design and all outgoing perspectives are available. What it can bring – you can understand yourself.
Follower management and analytics is available as well. The best tool for Twitter among those I have tried.
5) SproutSocial – not really something striking, but yet a very useful tool because of some extraordinary features I’m using in it. A very nice thing for those who want to start without serious effort and want to understand what they are doing – Sprout is brilliantly comprehensive and performs its tasks fairly well.
This is the list I have. Yet it may vary according to your particular needs and requirements – don’t forget to consider it when you will make up your mind. We’ll be coming up with our own specialized web service for facebook pages. So stay tuned!
