Here are 9 Social Media Tools for Smart Marketers

1. Tailwind

I am constantly raving about Tailwind because it’s a big part of why my blog and social accounts have grown the way they have. I started out using Tailwind to schedule and grow my Pinterest account but it has also quickly developed into my little Instagram secret. 

It’s now also possible to schedule your Instagram posts and videos directly from Tailwind. Tailwind helps you with scheduling your posts, Hashtags suggestions, growth analysis, weekly tips and tricks, and so much more.

2. Canva 

Canva is my design program of choice. Since I am a full-time blogger and online social media coach there are all kinds of designs I need to create on a regular basis. May it be Pinterest pins, Freebies, Instagram quotes, FB Ads or any other design Canva is providing me with everything I need. 

I am personally using Canva Pro which allows me to access over 4m photos, upload my own fonts, create a brand kit for my blog and social accounts, use folders to organize my designs, create animations and gifs and so much more. 

Canva Pro is 100% optional but you can check it out here. Canva also comes with a totally free version which I have been using for years you can check out here.

3. Interact

With Interact you can create fun Quizzes and Surveys. Interact has been a game-changer for my business. When it comes to knowing what your audience really wants while growing your new subscribers at the same time then Interact is what your business and social accounts need. 

You can, for example, use Quizzes to grow your audience. People love taking short quizzes and in order for them to receive their results they can opt into your email list. Interact is a great tool to grow your subscribers without having to invest in creating a lot of freebies. 

Interact’s survey function also allows you to create complex or simple questionnaires to identify exactly what your audience is looking for and are struggling with the most. 

Here are some examples of how I am using to interact on my blog.

4. MiloTree

I love MiloTree. MiloTree literally helps me grow my social and blog subscribers on auto-pilot without having to lift a finger. Maybe you have seen it on whatsktieupto.com before and you know that I am using this tool myself here on the blog. 

MiloTree is a small pop up that appears somewhere on your website when someone visits your site. You can choose which social media (Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook) or email list the pop up should promote. Then your visitor simply has to press one button to subscribe to the respective media. 

Due to the simple but effective design of MiloTree, each social media is showcased in the best way showing either your awesome Pinterest pins, Instagram posts or Freebie you want to send out.

5. Leadpages

LeadPages is the tool I use to grow my email list on my blog. Whether this is for creating beautiful landing pages to effective pop-ups within each of my blog posts. But, Leadpages can also be great for leading the way from social media to your awesome content. 

Rather than leading your new visitor from Pinterest or Instagram to your Blog, you could lead them to a LeadPages Landing page where they could receive a freebie, opt in to your free email course, sign up for your free webinar or directly purchase your amazing product. 

Because LeadPages are great to take away distracting Blog content such as the menu or the sidebar, landing pages actually work really well-converting social media followers to blog subscribers.

If you are a food blogger then I highly recommend you to check out the WPTasty Plugins. Developed by the one and only “Pinch of Yum” team WPTasty is the best plugin for you. 

With WPTasty you will be able to create beautifully, SEO optimized recipes for your blog post or create separate pin descriptions for your Pinterest account.

7. Fomo

Fomo helps entrepreneurs to show off their successes in small little pop-ups down below on your site. This could be a pop up saying that someone just purchased your product, opted-in to your email list, viewed your page or joined your social account. 

It’s a super simple but effective way to show social proof to your new blog visitor or potential new client/customer. Fomo helps you increase conversions in a very simple way which is in no way annoying your customer. 

Check out Fomo here.

8. Iconosquare

IconoSquare is the Instagram analytics tool you need to have to explode your account. If you are frustrated with Instagram’s own analytics or you are managing other people’s Instagram accounts and show off your amazing progress then IconoSquare is the social media tool for you. 

IconoSquare includes advanced analytics which is easy to understand, use their built-in scheduler, keep a close eye on your competitors, manage and analyze your best performing content.

9. ContactInBio

ContactInBio is a great way to add additional links for your business or blog to your Instagram account. Sadly, Instagram makes it really hard for people to go off their platform by allowing one single link within your Instagram Bio. 

ContactInBio allows you to add a link to your Instagram Bio which leads to a landing page with an overview and additional links to your best content, helpful information and even products. ContactInBIo even allows you to design this landing page so it matches your style and branding.
