In my experience, it is best to manage your accounts in order to find your customers are and engage with them accordingly. Of course, I do all these with some handy tools. Here are my top social media management tools and how I use them in creating success online:

  1. Hootsuite – This is a social network management tool that I use to schedule posts on different social media networks I manage like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. You can try it for free with its trial version and eventually move to a plan that would suit your needs.
  2. Tweetdeck – This tool developed by Twitter is what I use to manage my personal twitter account on my desktop. It can also help you manage multiple accounts, create searches, and track topics and hashtags.
  3. Commun.it – It is a community management tool that I use to engage followers on Twitter as well as reach out to other influencers. With a free account, you can already manage one account. Meanwhile, Commun.it also offers several plans to manage multiple profiles.

  5. Post Planner – It is an application in Facebook to help me in content curation and content research. This is great so that we can avoid running out of ideas or topics to share on our social media accounts.
  6. Rebel Mouse – This is a recent favorite of mine. It also helps in the social media content curation. Among its features are creating and curating original content and social web content. It also has specific features for individuals, marketers and agencies, and publishers and media.
