Social algorithms are tough, they are becoming harder to get great traffic from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social websites that are there. Here’s a list of very useful free social media tools that you can use.
It allows you to schedule your social content. With Hootsuite not only can you share content on all social sites with ease and a few clicks, but you can also schedule your content many months in advance. Why this is important, is because many people share their content only once on social sites like Twitter. But if you share your content on Twitter six times in a year, that same piece of content will roughly get 2 to 3 times more traffic. When you share your content most people won’t see it. There is nothing wrong if you sharing the content multiple times throughout the year.
If you are someone struggling to get more traffic from Facebook, ManyChat will solve your issue. It is a chatbot tool that leverages Facebook Messenger and what you will find is the click-through and the open rates are ridiculous. It beats out the email. If you want easy traffic, leverage ManyChat. When people visit your website they can do things such as subscribe to you through Facebook Messenger and when you have a message or a blog post, you can push it out through ManyChat. You will get open rates of about 60% and you will get click-through rates above 30, 40, and 50%. Even when it drops down you will still see your click-through rate above 30%. It is that effective.
When you write blogs or some kind of content, even after you share it on the social web a lot of times, sometimes no one wants to like it or comment on it. But with Buzzsumo, it will show you all the other popular articles within your space, and all the ones that aren’t popular. Look at the topics that are popular, write more of that on your blog, promote those on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, and again you will get more traffic, because you are only writing things that people want to read about and see, than just writing whatever you want to write about.
SocialBlade is a platform where you can go on and check statistics from any account from YouTube to twitch Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It will show you, your subscriber growth over time, as well as how much content you are pushing out. It will help in optimizing how much content you should be creating to get the maximum amount of subscribers, fans, and followers.
