Welcome to Lesson #8 of the free “Tools Of The Trade” mini-course.
In today’s lesson you will discover three of the best and easiest tools to find, share and schedule content — even if you have no blog, podcast or any content of your own.
These tools are perfect for time poor marketing consultants (and business owners) who want to practice what they preach — EVEN if they are too busy to create content themselves.
Feedly lets you follow all your favourite blogs and news sites and it lets you arrange the content into easy-to-read collections. Instead of checking each blog everyday to see if there’ anything new, simply check Feedly and all the latest articles are there.
Plus with the click you can then share the best content on Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook. It’s free to integrate these tools. Get started on Feedly (for free)
Then and add all your favourite blogs and start sharing your favourite stuff!
Buffer is free tool where you can schedule social media updates (so you don’t need to login to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn a dozen times each day!)
You can schedule your content to go out at various intervals throughout the day (and night.) You decide the frequency and even the specific time. Buffer gives you peace of mind knowing that social media content will be shared throughout the week, once you’ve scheduled it.
Edgar is a paid tool and an absolute game changer for taking your social media publishing to the next level.
You can store all the content you wish to share in “libraries”. Then you nominate how frequently you want to publish to each social media platform. The best thing about Edgar is that once it has posted all the content in your libraries, it starts from the top again and recycles it all. You always have your best content being shared, without you having to do anything else. This frees you up to create more content and interact with people directly on the social media sites.
