7 Apps to Boost Your Social Media Marketing Productivity

10 Aug

Marketing your business on social is not only an effort that requires time, but mobility as well. Mobile usage in general has risen year after year – heck, at the end of 2014 526 million of the 1.39 billion users of Facebook alone were accessing the social media network solely via a mobile device. In terms of social media, this isn’t entirely surprising considering the nature of content most individuals produce on their personal platforms.

In-the-moment, on-the-go; the power of mobile paired with social networking allows “friends” to travel with users in the comfort of their own pocket. One person’s experience becomes an experience for everyone in their virtual circles. But what does this mean for a social media marketer from a business perspective?

To connect with consumers on social, think like your consumers on social. And did we mention “mobile” yet? YES. Not just for consumption, a number of apps exist to aid in the production and activation of your business’ social strategy when on-the-go. The perfect moment for a brand experience can’t always be crafted, your fans won’t stop talking after the office lights go off for the day – don’t miss a single opportunity. Load your mobile device with these 7 apps and take your brand’s social efforts to the next level.
