If you’re an executive or business manager charged with managing your social media, you’re more than likely doing it on the run or while multi-tasking. First, slooowwww down, mistakes most often happen when we’re distracted (make sure you’re actually posting that photo of you and your pals at the bar to your personal account). Second, consider that better management of social media may happen through your mobile phone. Scroll down for a few of our faves!
Dropbox – make file sharing a breeze on the go, you can save photos from your uploaded Dropbox files to post to social media, and you can even upload photos and videos from your phone into folders so employees or colleagues can get to them quickly
Hootsuite – if you schedule your social media posts in advance, you can have those posts at your fingertips with the Hoosuite app. This especially comes in handy when you need to make quick changes to posts about events or announcements on the fly
Pages app for Facebook – manage multiple Facebook profiles? If you don’t already use the Pages app, get it now and thank us later. The app, which has undergone major improvements in the past year, allows you to do most things you can do from the full desktop version, but with a simple, paired back visual design (you can even adjust roles if an admin quits while you’re away from your computer for example)
WordSwag – we are seriously addicted to this app. For just a few dollars, get this app that allows you to turn your original images into cool memes by overlaying several different fonts (with tons of pretty colors and attractive layouts) over your photos
Repost for Instagram – if you already use Instagram you know you can’t “share” Instagram posts to Instagram. Use Repost for Instagram to share curated content with your fans, or when someone mentions you or shares an image of you, your products or services
MailChimp and Constant Contact – both companies offer mobile apps to manage subscribers and send emails while on the run
