7 Tools To Boost Your Social Media Performance

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:

1. Rignite

    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.

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.

      3. Twtrland

        Twtrland Pro of course offers a variety of extra options, such as enhanced profile views and connecting fanbases. A Pro subscription starts at around $20 per month.

        4. LikeAlyzer

          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!

          5. Swayy

                8 Replacements for Google Notebook

                8 Replacements for Google Notebook

                Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

                1. Zoho Notebook
                  If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
                2. Evernote
                  The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
                3. Net Notes
                  If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
                4. i-Lighter
                  You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
                5. Clipmarks
                  For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
                6. UberNote
                  If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
                7. iLeonardo
                  iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
                8. Zotero
                  Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

                I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

                Advertising

                In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
