Social Media Management Apps

Working from your phone is unavoidable at times, especially when it comes to social media. Instagram doesn't even have a web portal that allows you to post images/video from a computer! So, I wanted to share some of the apps I use to make social media management a little bit easier. (Having the apps for each social media platform is a given so don't worry, I'm not going to tell you how awesome the Twitter App is!) I have a Droid so some of the apps might not be available on IOS, sorry Apple people!.

1. Instasize 

Instasize allows you to resize any photo (vertical or not) to fit into the square dimensions needed to post to Instagram. You can (and should) also add text on top of your image. There are various fonts and colors to choose from. You can add arrows, stamps, stickers, etc. to really make your photo stand out on Instagram.

2. Repost

Repost is another app to help increase engagement on Instagram. It allows you to repost someone else's Instagram posts. It adds their Instagram handle to the photo to give them credit and copies their caption over as well if you want to use it. 

3. Hootsuite

Hootsuite is a social media management tool that has a desktop and mobile application. I use both, but I like to have the app on my phone if I ever need to work while I'm on the go. Hootsuite now lets you schedule posts for Instagram which is great!

4. Facebook Pages Manager

The Facebook Pages Manager app is different than the regular Facebook App and give you much more control over your Page management if you're trying to do it from you phone. 

5 Viva Video

Viva Video is a video editing app. You can add subtitles, clip your video, add music, transitions, you name it. So if you record videos from your phone and don't have any editing software on your computer, give this a try to spruce up your videos. 

6. Wetransfer

Wetransfer is an app that lets you transfer large files without depleting the size of the file. So if you are filming a lot of videos for your marketing on your phone and you don't want them to shrink down when you're sending them, then use Wetransfer! They have a desktop version as well. 

What apps have you found helpful for your marketing efforts? Let me know in the comments.
