Social Media Automation Tools For The Network Marketer
Automation is going to be the way forward for online businesses of the 21st century. Those that automate are going to be the most successful. There is an automation tool for all possible tasks, from email marketing to paid advertising models. The trick is to find the automation tools that fit into your lifestyle and business model. Here are some of the better automation tools out there.
#1 – MailChimp
MailChimp is an email management service that can assist in streamlining email campaigns. MailChimp is a favorite email automation tool for startups and digital nomads. It is known for its ease of use and is the biggest email automation tool out there. Email marketing is still a very lucrative business model. This is because while people may change their social medial platforms, they tend to stick with the same email address. So building up an email list is a great way to keep in touch with potential customers over the long term. Even aside from pure email marketing, it is always a good idea to maintain an email list to keep customers regularly engaged. For example, those who are creating a blog will also need to maintain an email list and MailChimp can assist with this activity.
#2 – HootSuite
HootSuite is the perfect platform to automate social media strategies. It can be used to monitor how your business is doing across different social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. You can see how your brand is performing through the simplified HootSuite dashboard. It is also possible to schedule and update posts as well as to create social analytic reports. The ability to schedule posts is a powerful feature that many freelancers and business owners are starting to take advantage of. It can significantly free up time. HootSuite is free for a basic personal subscription, though there are upgraded premium options.
#3 – Hubspot
Hubspot is an inbound marketing and sales automation tool that is extremely popular within the online business community. Marketing and sales is a difficult part of any business enterprise, and Hubspot can help to ease the burden. It comes with a free customer relationship management (CRM) system and is free to use. It allows for email marketing and automation, lead generation, analytics, meeting scheduling, customer feedback, and ticketing. Hubspot has a massive online community who are very active and this is a very well-regarded automation tool that can streamline marketing campaigns.
#4 – Clickfunnels
Clickfunnels is a platform that automates lead generation, sales and checkout processes, up selling. education or info based products, and email campaigns. Basically, it's software that does everything that #1,2, and 3 listed above do separately. It is, in my opinion, the worlds most extensive piece of software in direct response marketing. Many bloggers and affiliates have used Clickfunnels to generate leads and traffic to their website by narrowing the focus to specific audiences and speaking ONLY to those people… Clickfunnels' job is to capture that audience and lead them through a custom sales experience that fits their exclusive needs. To take a test drive behind the platform- I suggest enrolling in their One Funnel Away Challenege. Not only will you get advance training in marketing and sales but you'll also get some master training on how to effectively build and launch your first funnel- it's such a fun challenge and their Facebook community is SO helpful.
Anyway, now that you have some amazing time saver tools under your belt- Go live your life and spend your saved time doing other awesome things.
