There many different aspects that go in to running a small business or blog and a major player is social media. Luckily in this age of technology there are some great apps that are able to help tame the craziness. When we think of management with social media usually all that comes to mind is scheduling posts and being active. But what about followers and engaging. Here is a list of my favorite apps that go beyond scheduling the post.
This is an app for managing Twitter followers. This app is great becuase I check to see who my new followers are, who recently unfollowed me. It also provides a quick breakdown of followers dividing them into three sections: non-followers, mutual friends and fans. I can also quickly follow new followers and unfollow those that have unfollowed me.
Google Play Store: Followers+
InstaFollow is very similar to Followers+ but for Instagram. It has the same breakdown of feautres as noted above for Followers+ but it also has an add on package focused on Engagement. This is a paid add on (very inexpensive) that allows you to see top likers and commenters, best and worst followers, and secret admirers.

Plume allows you customize your twitter feed so that you are better able to follow and keep up with the fast paced twitter world. You can add mutiple lists, accounts, color code certain tweets or users. The list features is rather extensive. This app really lets you utilize twitter so that it works for you.

EasilyDo is great for social media management because it will highlight top information that it acquired from your Facebook feed allowing you to engage more without even going to Facebook, such as important posts, birthdays, top photos. It is able to see trigger words and know where the information falls. Then you can click through commment , like or just delete. This apps does go beyond social media and even offers weather, your calendar and so much more.

EveryPost is social sharing app but it allows more channels than some of the major bulk scheduling apps (and it’s free). I am able to share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, Flickr, LinkedIn, Dropbox, and Email. The only one missing that I would love to see is Instagram. But I will live with the rather extensive list. You just type out your post, check the platforms you wish to share, insert a photo or video and click post. It currently is not a scheduling tool but great for organic posts that you want to share across all of your social platforms.
