As a blogger, you already understand the importance of Social Media. Social Media is an opportunity to share your content with the world. Through Social Media, you can show who you are as a brand and interact with the people that are interested in what you know best. Creating interesting, timely, thought-provoking content is a small part of being a blogger. Once you create the amazing content you have to be sure you get it out into the world. You want your blogs to be shared regularly and through a variety of mediums. With all of the things you have going on in a single day, how cool would it be to have a resource that can flawlessly execute your entire social media calendar?
Having a tool that schedules, implements and reports on your Social Media are priceless. There are several great options out there. Not only are these tools cutting edge, easy to use and comprehensive; they are all under $10 a month! I have compiled my list of the top five Social Media Management Tools.
