Top 5 Tools for Social Media Productivity

Although we hate to admit it, we live in a world amongst procrastinators. Even some of the most successful people have an “I’ll get to it later” mindset, which can make it extremely difficult to properly manage a business, project, or task at hand. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite tools and apps to help you stay on track the next time you’re handed an assignment.

 

Here they are, along with reasons why we believe they’re so useful;

1) Asana

Asana is a web and mobile application designed to help teams track their work. It allows teammates to work in perfect flow and collaboration; and frankly, helps keep everyone on task and motivated.

This convenient tool also allows for assigning different jobs and tasks to various users, making sure everyone knows exactly what they should be doing and within what time frame. Asana is free to start, then you’ll pay $21/month for 5 team members, with the cost increasing as you add more team members.

2) Capzool Recommendation Calendar

We’d hate to blow our own whistle, but our Recommendation Calendar is one of the many tools we utilize to make sure uploads get posted at the right time and to the right social platform. In case you’re unfamiliar, the Capzool Recommendation Calendar allows users to schedule their posts (days, weeks, or even months in advance) to the social platform of their choice.

This tool was created for those who don’t have a flexible-enough schedule to sit around their computer and upload posts to their social media accounts; one-by-one. Our mass uploader gives you ready-made posts, images and captions included, for every day of the week and lets you knock out an entire month’s campaign in minutes. It’s the perfect tool for anyone who wants to maintain social presence, but simply doesn’t have the time. Capzool offers the first month free, and $29 thereafter.

3) Slack

Slack is a tool that brings all your communication together in one place.  It’s real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams.

Slack allows for users to create channels, differentiating the conversations between projects, topics, or teams. The convenience of this tool permits teammates to interact using one site, versus switching between texting and emailing. Users describe Slack as Gmail, iMessage, and DropBox all in one.

4) Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts markets itself as bringing conversations to life with photos, emoji, and even group video calls for free. They also make it possible for you to connect with friends across computers, Android, and Apple devices.

This tool by Google allows for users to have meetings or “hangouts” with their colleagues, no matter where they are in the world. You can also keep the hangout running in the background while you answer emails or work on a task.

5) Pingdom

Perfect for those who run websites, Pingdom is a service that tracks the uptime, downtime, and performance of websites. Pingdom monitors websites from multiple locations globally so that it can distinguish genuine downtime from routing and access problems.
