Add These To Your Arsenal To Stay Ahead
Social media marketing is probably one of the best ways to market your business. With millions and millions of people logging in to different social sites out there, any entrepreneur would be remiss not to use it to further their efforts.
The platform can be an extension of your website in the sense that you can talk to your customers more readily and they are able to express their opinions and concerns with the products that you’re offering.
But, given that the competition is fierce and you can easily sink a lot of time when using it, how can you beat your rivals?
In this article, I will go over some services that you can use today to help you beat your competition.
- Agora Pulse
The first service is Agora Pulse. What I love about this is that it provides you with a lot of free tools that you can use to show you different metrics. One such tool would be the “Twitter Cards” wherein you can see you and your competitor’s standings when it comes to a certain niche. You can see how many followers you’ve amassed over a certain period of time, among many other things.
But, the biggest thing I like about Agora Pulse is that you can pretty much schedule your content automatically. Once you’ve signed up for an account, you will be given a calendar interface and you can simply click on whatever date you want your content to be posted and at what time and the service will do it all for you.
That being said, another great thing about Agora Pulse is that you can access all of its features thanks to its trial account. If you’re satisfied with the service, their prices are quite affordable and competitive at the same time.
Part of social marketing is that you have to use certain tools to help you get useful statistics. If you want to track your links (i.e. know how many people who have clicked on a link that you’ve shared), then you definitely need to try Bitly.
Bitly allows you to copy any link and then paste it on their service bar. Once you do, you will be given a shortened link that you can easily post on your social media marketing website.
The good thing about this is that link will have some things tracked, this, including how many people have clicked on the link. You just have to sign up for a free account, try it for a couple of days, then go for the premium if you want to.
If you want a more robust analytics tool, then Quintly is for you. Sure, you can use Google Analytics to help you track some important data, but the tool is not specialized for social media use; something that Quintly definitely takes the cake for.
The tool is simple to use and you can get a lot of useful information just by doing a few clicks.
If your intent is lead generation, then look no further than Socedo. This easy to use tool allows you to create amazing leads from a plethora of templates you can choose from. And, as you can probably tell from the theme of this article, this amazing tool can be used for free for a couple of days.
