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:
Rignite streamlines the process of managing multiple social media accounts. Multiple accounts are viewable on a single dashboard, and users are given the ability to schedule individual or group posts as they choose. Rignite can link up with a previously made Feedly account in order to curate past content, as well as synchronize future posts. Rignite’s Campaign feature has been raved about; with this tool, users can schedule a series of similarly-themed posts throughout a day or week, grow a company’s email list, and increase their overall presence on social media.
Rignite is free for a 14-day trial, and offers Silver and Gold memberships for $28 and $49 a month per user, respectively.
Mention is a real-time social media monitoring app that crosses platforms, ensuring you and your business knows what’s trending throughout the entire World Wide Web at any given moment. Users can set up Mention to alert them when certain keywords trend, as well as when their own material is shared. Mention also connects members of a business team, allowing them to quickly communicate trends in order to react to a question on Twitter, post on Facebook, and generally stay connected to each other.
Basic membership to Mention is free, with subscriptions ranging from $30 to $300 a month.
Twtrland is an app that basically shows your activity and popularity on Twitter. Through the Twtrland dashboard, you can view past posts, and analyze which posts were shared most throughout the web.

LikeAlyzer analyzes Facebook Pages and rates its performance based on a variety of factors. LikeAlyzer takes more into consideration than simply how many fans a page has. The tool analyzes a page’s posts per day, how often the owner interacts with his fans, and the type of media shared on the page. The best feature of LikeAlyzer is that it offers suggestions even for top performers on how to improve their page to gain even more exposure.
Okay, I lied. The best part of LikeAlyzer is that it’s absolutely free!
