Tools

These are our favourite tools for social media pros. All are tools we either use these now, or have done in the past for our own business or our clients. There are some special offers below and some of these may include affiliate links, which won't affect your purchase.

We use Agorapulse for social media scheduling, reporting and social listening. The reporting feature alone makes this stand out above other tools we've tried in the past. You can get 2 months free (as well as a free trial) using the link above.

We use GroupFunnels on all our Facebook groups and with clients to collect email addresses. Think of Facebook groups as an opt-in and this is the tool that makes life easy for you as a social media manager.

This isn't a cheap investment but is worth every penny in our opinion, and if your clients are using Facebook groups and trying to grow their email list this tool is essential.

When we go live we use Ecamm and people ALWAYS ask about it. Ecamm allows you to bring on multiple guests, add logos and slides and all sorts of other fancy things. If you or your clients use live video a lot this is definitely worth the investment (only available on Mac though)

If you are using Facebook ads then Connect Explore is a great tool for finding interests to add to your targeting. This tool is a one time purchase which saves so much time. 

If your clients are using video then you absolutely must add captions. Rev is our transcriber of choice, they rarely make a mistake in our experience. You can download an SRT file to add to Facebook, LinkedIn etc or use a tool like Kapwing to ‘burn' the captions on permanently. Get $10 credit by clicking the image above.

Ready to create a course? Thinkific is a great place to host it. Before we built our own membership site, we used Thinkific. They have a free plan to get you started and offer great support to help you level up too.
