Discover our TOP 3 Google Chrome extensions; perfect for social media marketers and gurus…
Knowing which tools to use for social media can often be a minefield – there seems to be a new one emerging every day.
It is safe to say we thought we had seen them all before…we were surprised to find we hadn’t!
In the minefield there are often some extremely useful tools which can be used as extensions on Google Chrome. We have found five that we love and think will help improve your performance at work.
Here are nine Google Chrome extensions that social media managers will drool over:
First up is Evernote. It is the perfect tool for social media managers who wear a lot of hats. If you are a social media professional who starts researching for one topic but during that research finds ten other useful articles…Evernote will be a dream come true for you.
Say goodbye to untidy, unorganised bookmarks and say hello to an organised bookmark heaven. Clip different articles to different notebooks.
What we love the most about this extension is that you can sync your Evernote account to all devices. This means that those late-night articles you find won’t be lost or forgotten – because let’s face it we all have an inner social geek inside of us!
Are you forgetful? Well, we all would be if we had a number of client passwords and usernames to keep track of on a variety of different platforms. LastPass is definitely the answer!
For storing all client’s website and social media logins, this extension is one not to be ignored. Using one log in it allows you to feasibly and securely share access to accounts that you would normally not be able to even connect with.
Remembering one key username and password is surely better than remembering one hundred.
Sick of pulling hashtags from thin air in hope that they will gain interest to your followers and generate new followers? This optimiser provides analytics on the hashtags you use as you write your social media messaging. RightTag provides a real-time insight into the hashtags within the Tweets you produce.
If you have OCD like us, you will be pleased to know that each of your hashtags will be colour-coded based on their value using a traffic light coloured system.
The extension also gives you an insight as to who is using your hashtags – giving you better scope to build a strong, engaging audience.
Check My Links
We all know how tiring proof reading can be and as we aren’t robots we can sometimes miss the odd link that is broken within our web content.
Check My Links does all the hard work for you. Although it can’t proof read your work exactly it can ensure that any link placed within your blog is working and will not cause any unwanted negative feedback on social media.
Once downloaded, the extension will read your article on your webpage and highlight any broken links in red – giving you an extra eye for the detail that matters.
We will finish with this last extension to help create some mindfulness across the social media marketing community.
There is a lot on social media and in the news about being mindful at work and we want to back this because we know how important it is to everyone’s general wellbeing.
Coming in to work after a long weekend and going straight to your overflowing inbox to be hounded by numerous clients and colleagues is never a pleasant experience. However, Momentum can change all that for you.
Replacing your ‘new tab’ home page with a beautiful picture every day along with a personalised greeting is a much nicer way to start the day. From motivational quotes popping up occasionally, to helping you plan your day Momentum has it all – so, keep calm and build your own Momentum.
So there we have it – our top 5 Google Chrome extensions for social media marketers. If you are a social media guru and think you have a better Google Chrome extension, let us know yours in the comments below.
