Why I use tools
As an online marketer and new blogger, it is always a challenge filtering through numerous sources of content every day. Whether I’m curating content for my blog’s social media pages, doing research for my blog or an assignment or just browsing and posting on my personal social media pages, managing clutter is an added task.
4 of the social media managing tools I love using to keep organized daily.
1. I use Pocket to store articles and any notable information I come across from the internet that I will like to revisit at a later time. Pocket has browser web extensions and a mobile application that allows for syncing across devices making it very quick and convenient to ‘pocket’ desired content from anywhere. Pocket has an impressive free version as well as a premium subscription for persons who desire more.
2. I use Feedly to store and categorize sources that I use mainly for content curation. Feedly collects and stores RSS feeds typically from news sites or other sites that make regular posts. These posts can then be easily accessed based on given topics and categories and curated with ease. Feedly is available on both the web and on mobile. You can browse in Feedly itself and store any sources you consider valuable to have access to their current and future posts. Feedly has an impressive basic free version as well as a pro version for persons who desire more.
3. I use Buffer to organize content posts for all of my social media pages. Buffer is a comprehensive social media tool used not only for scheduling posts but also to monitor and analyze the success of each post. It allows you to queue up content and posts them at the best times to encourage high engagement between posts and its audience. You can select multiple pages from multiple platforms to post on at once so you save time. Buffer also has cool and convenient web extensions as well as a mobile app that is great for curating content. Buffer has a basic free option as well as paid subscriptions for persons with varying needs.
4. I use Pablo to create micro-content images to promote my blog on social media as well as for creating high-quality visuals for my personal social media pages. Pablo is a photo editor owned by Buffer used to create images primarily for posting on social media. It has a wide array of templates and fonts with background images from many different categories suitable for the different needs of users. Its interface is very simple and easy to use. Pablo is completely free for use by anyone.
These tools are easy to use and will save you a lot of time throughout your daily online activities, especially your social media activities. They also help you to manage past current and future content and sources.
