I’ve used Hootsuite for posting updates to social networks and reviewing what others are saying for nearly five years now after using Tweetdeck back in the day – Twitter killed that one off for general use. Hootsuite seems to be comfortably the most popular free tool for posting and reviewing social media updates, but many still don’t know it, it can be used as a personal social media management tool too. It enables you to quickly post to all the main social networks including Google+ company pages and review conversations and messages. I’ve trialled many paid tools, but none come close. The paid version is worthwhile IMO for adding campaign tracking and extra reports.

Woah. This is a great list! Must have take ages to make. I think you should add DrumUp (http://drumup.io/content-discovery-social-media-management-tool) to your list of Content Curation Tools. It’s a free tool that is great for finding content related to your keywords. It also lets you schedule curated content or your own posts on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

I find it easier to use, finding new content and scheduling it easily, with the app mixing the types of content for me in post order (by my rules) even if I don’t add them that way. I’m a big fan of Wistia, Salesforce, Canva, Unbounce, Mixpanel… so many good recs here. I’m going to check out Medium.

The new digital era has enabled brands to selectively target their customers that may potentially be interested in their brand or based on previous browsing interests. Businesses can now use social media to select the age range, location, gender and interests of whom they would like their targeted post to be seen by. Furthermore, based on a customer’s recent search they can be ‘followed’ on the internet so they see advertisements from similar brands, products and services, This allows businesses to target the specific customers that they know and feel will most benefit from their product or service, something that had limited capabilities up until the digital era.
As your online marketing strategies begin, also consider affiliate marketing. With this type of marketing, other people advertise your products. All products that are sold leading from their site will give them a portion of the profit. This is a good way to increase your online ads without paying for them in advance.
Raising the visibility of the most important and relevant content to the top level of your website pages. This helps search-engine crawlers easily find your best content, rather than having to search for it deep in your site.
