It's Tool Time!
So we’ve pretty much consolidated round the following platforms:
(Pinterest will be more for retailers & Yelp and Foursquare will be more relevant for local businesses.)
Hopefully you’re all writing content for your website and having that automatically seeded out to the different platforms where you engage with people to develop your client base. Awesome!
For the time-starved
I know the thought of having to go to each network and check what’s going on horrifies most of you – yes in the ideal world you should be spending time out there interacting with other people, but if you can’t manage that – you should at least be interacting with people who interact with you!
All of you can handle email, so why not have a daily summary of what’s been going on across your digital footprint? Constant Contact’s NutshellMail allows you to hook up all your social media accounts and receive a daily email containing all activity that has happened – allowing you to react in a timely manner should someone interact with you.
Here's a short video that explains it beautifully:http://youtu.be/Bq7a_o0Tcto
