Sprout Social

Sprout Social works to measure reports and provide analytics, monitor and engage with others in social conversations, and to plan or schedule posts on various social platforms.  What sets the stage for this tool is that it harnesses the belief that customers and businesses should engage freely with options to enhance the levels of engagement.  For example, according to Kenneth Waldman’s perspective on Social Media Examiner, “you can see the profiles attached to your account and the team members who are helping you manage these networks. Looking left allows you to get insight into audience demographics and trends on your account, detailing interactions and impressions you’ve made during the past day or week.

One thought on “Social Media Tools for Success

  1. Great post! These are two social media tools that I have never heard of and they seem like great tools to use. Both seem to be great for businesses especially everypost, with a business having a variety of social media accounts on multiple platforms, they are able to easily post on all at the same time. As a business or blogger you are able to easily eliminate the task of having to post to each individual social media account. Other than the blog for our social media class, I have a personal travel blog and these seems like great tools that I could personally use to take our blog to the next level and get our information out there. I think I could for sure use Everypost, right now once I post a blog post it is automatically posted to our Facebook page but I have to manually post it to Instagram and I am not using other platforms right now, but with this tool I might expand our social media presence! Your post was very informative, thanks for the information!
