Digital marketing tools are a huge asset that save time and ultimately money. Last month, we provided you the best tools for content marketing. This time around, we here to give you the best social media marketing tools.
As we all know, we’re living in a digital first world. What we mean by this is that most of the content and information we learn on a daily basis, comes from online.
How often do you check your phone for the sports score or get a little notification, of a major event happening? Chances are, that news probably hit social media first. The point is, everyone is online, more specifically, social media.
By now, it’s obvious why your business needs to be on social media. However, it does require a lot of time and attention. (But not if you have tools!)
Let’s dig into some of our favorite social media tools.
If you’re using Facebook ads, AdEspresso is a very powerful tool. This tool lets you create campaigns, but simplifies the process (as we know how complicated Facebook Ads can get.)
The tool quickly lets you create campaigns, just enter a name and targeting details. From there, it’s really easy to set up different variations (A/B testing). AdEspresso takes care of the rest, as it automatically tests the different headlines, images, and marketing copy.
Once you select the right ad, publish onto Facebook and start seeing results! It’s that easy!
Benefit: test different Facebook ad variations to see which give you the strongest ROI.
The average half-life for a Tweet is just minutes, if not seconds. So creating multiple social media posts is no easy task. You have to create the image, a catchy message, and make sure it's optimized; and who has all day to just create social media posts?
With Planable, you can now streamline your marketing efforts. Create and preview posts in any format, whether it’s text, video, gif, link, photo, album, carousel. Customize your posts and view them as though they’re live, while also having one space to collaborate on all your social content

- “You can publish your FavePage Stories with your personalized titles & editorial. You can even re-order tweets and hide specific tweets within your FavePage Story. Any hashtag on any day can become a FavePage Story that you tell.”
TubeBuddy is a simple tool you can add as a browser extension. The tool is aimed to help you optimize your YouTube channel and ideally gain views and subscribers. The best part of the tool is that you can use it straight from YouTube!
