Social Media and Marketing Tools I Recommend
There are wide range of social media marketing and general marketing tools and apps that I recommend as additional social media resources. Below are just some of them. If there is a particular tool that you are looking for that you do not find here, please feel free to contact me and ask – I probably know the answer!
These are the apps, tools, and services that I use regularly that I highly recommend you consider:
Agorapulse (Social Media Dashboard) – A complete social media dashboard that I currently use as my main engagement and publishing dashboard.
ConvertKit (Email Marketing) – My email marketing and marketing automation software that I highly recommend to small businesses and bloggers.
CoSchedule (WordPress Content Management) – If your blog has multiple contributors, CoSchedule is a must-have!
Fiverr (Virtual Services) – I once laughed about Fiverr, but now I laugh at the companies who DON’T use it. Especially if you are in social media marketing, there are a lot of high quality providers that can help you when you most need it. If you haven’t checked out Fiverr recently, you owe it to yourself to do so!
GenM (Marketing Interns) – Looking to hire a marketing intern? If so, GenM is for you!
Kicksta (Instagram Marketing) – An Instagram automation tool based on the concept that likes will help you yield engagement and build community.
Leadpages (Landing Page) – The standard for building landing pages that convert. Period.
OptinMonster (WordPress Lead Generation) – If you’re looking for a way to best promote your lead magnets on your website, look no further!
Promo (Video Marketing) – Need to create videos for your marketing? Then you need Promo ;-)
SEMrush (Search Engine Optimization Tool) – Free 7 day trial! SEMrush is truly the definitive tool for search engine optimization that I recommend to and use for all of my clients.
Siteground (Website Hosting) – I have gone through a number of web hosting services, and the quality of hosting and care of customer service is by far the best I have experienced.
SocialBee (Social Media Automation) – A great tool for scheduling of social media posts with optional assistants (“bees”) that can help give you a helping hand in your social media marketing work should you need one.
Tailwind (Instagram and Pinterest Management) – The definitive social media scheduling tool for both Pinterest and more recently Instagram. Their Pinterest functionality is second to none, including unique features such as SmartLoops and Tribes.
TrafficWonker (Pinterest Management) – TrafficWonker is part Buffer-like, part AI, and all Pinterest!
These are other social media resources tools that I might use on a project basis or do not regularly use but can still recommend their functionality from using them in the past. I also realize that not every tool meets every company’s needs, so if for whatever reason you don’t like what you see above, check these out:
Brand24 (Social Listening)
GroupHigh (Influencer Marketing)
Nimble (Social CRM)
Open Influence (Influencer Marketing)

Note: Some of the above companies have been kind to allow me free or discounted usage of their tool. Also, note that some of the links for these social media resources, when clicked and product purchased, help in providing funds to keep this website operating (in other words, some of the links are affiliate links). I would never list a company here if I did not both use and recommend them. Contact me if you have questions about this policy or want to know more about a specific tool!
