  1. I’ve been looking for the perfect tool to manage my social media and I think I’ve finally found it. Does buzzbundle really work with all social media platforms?

  2. I’ve just discovered a social network called friends+.me that can post to Google+ communities! I found that Google+ communities can be a gold mine for targeted traffic and I’m testing Friend+.me right now. I will let you know how it goes! Happy to see that you have Pinterest images in your posts now! They look awesome. Sharing 🙂

    1. Hi Claire, thanks for dropping by, I have tried Google+ communities but I think they need a lot of engagement with the fellow users to gain from the traffic. I find Facebook Groups to more easier to use than G+ communities with regard to self promotion.

  3. I actually read this yesterday. There is a lot of value here. i for one get distracted very easily and then wonder why page views are down at the end of the month, haha. Thanks for all the tips!

    1. Yes, the good thing about these tools, is automation. You don’t need to be present all the times on social media to post. You can have your posts or messages automatically set to be posted at a given future time.

  4. Great list! I’ve been using the Later plugin and cannot stand it, so I will have to try some of these. I really feel that Hootsuite is the next best bet, since it seems you have to continually post (a lot) on a daily basis with Pinterest.

  5. Hey John,

    That’s an awesome list. I invite you to try SMhack. In addition to the publishing, engagement and analytics, SMhack also offers competition benchmarking where you can spy on competitor’s social strategy. It also has approval workflow which makes ensures that the brand is in full control of their social media marketing. I would love to see your thoughts on SMhack. Give it a shot!!
