Do you like your work? I bet you do. Also, I believe it might be stressful as hell sometimes. It probably requires you to make quick decisions, prioritize your tasks, and simply put in the hours you need to get things done. Fortunately, the times when you had to do everything manually are long gone and will never come back (yay!). However, with the wide array of tools for marketers currently available on the market, it can be a little overwhelming to choose the right one.
Without further ado, here’s our list of 6 highly efficient and user-friendly tools for marketers.
You spend a lot of time creating awesome content. Then you publish it and wait for the big buzz, but hey – waiting is passé, as you now have GetSocial.
GetSocial is a content performance analytics platform to support, promote, and amplify your content. It also helps you make decisions according to The Four A’s:
1. Assess. Track 100% of your site’s social activity.
2. Analyze. Score each content piece for virality and detect most viral content.
3. Automate. Get automated virality alerts for immediate action when your content is picking up on social media.
4. Amplify. Promote your top performing content through paid distribution.
When it comes to communication with your clients, nothing is more effective than being close to them. LiveChat, a customer service software, lets you be there for your customers, right when they need you. They save time, you earn trust (a win-win for everyone, really).
LiveChat is a game changer for marketers because it makes customer service as fast as Formula 1, plus you can have a couple of conversations at once (try it on your phone!). Another important thing is that you can customize your chat to your needs, so you adjust the app to the way you work and not the other way around.
Attending to your customers individually will make them feel taken care of and you’ll be relieved to find how easy it is. Feel like you need metrics to support your decisions? Reports & analytics will point you in the right direction so you can make data-driven decisions (and boy, we simply love analytics at Brand24).
It doesn’t really matter what level of SEO knowledge you’re at today. Positionly caters for the needs of both beginners and SEO geeks – it is a refreshingly simple and user-friendly SEO analytical tool. The app provides you with:
1. Ranking tracker to improve your rankings and get more traffic from search engines.
2. Inbound links checker allowing you to discover your backlinks.
3. Competitor analysis feature to track your competitors ranking along with your own.
4. Website optimization grader to make your site more SEO-friendly.
In essence, Positionly gives you control over your SEO activities so you can stay on top of your game and be more visible in search results.
Do you know which pages visitors browse on your website? I bet you do (or at least you should!). But do you know what people think about your website and the products or services offered? If the answer is no, it’s high time you took action.
