7 Tools To Boost Your Social Media Performance

Raise your hand if you have a Facebook page. Twitter? Instagram? Pinterest? Chances are, if you’re reading this, you have at least one of them. But if you’re anything like I used to be, you most likely use them to post pictures of your dinner, or share a crazy cat video. You could be using these incredible tools to make your presence of social media felt, and possibly monetize your blog or website while you’re at it.

These 8 tools will help you boost your social media performance:
