1. Tagboard – an effective social media marketing tool

There’s no doubt that social media is one of the most effective ways to forge relationships online. However, as most of us have probably experienced, it can also, take up a whole lot of time. For this reason, we are always on the lookout for social media automation tools that can help make our social media activities more efficient and more effective as well as grow benefits.

Tagboard is a useful social media tool for social media monitoring. It allows customers to easily keep track of hashtags on major social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and Vine.

It can be extremely difficult to monitor and track conversations happening across multiple platforms and Tagboard saves you a ton of time by allowing you to create custom boards with content from each platform.

Tagboard is more than a simple hashtag analytics tool. It is a super convenience marketing tool, it tracks where your hashtags are used in real-time, and then measures sentiment surrounding them. You can then create tagboards—collections of popular posts with the positive sentiment that updates automatically. These tagboards can be embedded in mobile apps and websites— you can even show them on large-screen displays. It’s a great way of amplifying your best and freshest content.

No professional is complete without the tools to do their work effectively—imagine a doctor without a stethoscope or a gardener without shears! Using the right tools won’t make you a great content marketer, but it will give you the best chance of getting there. We need ways to track hashtags, send emails, make infographics, find content ideas, and so much more. By using tools, we can automate the most tedious parts of our work and focus on what matters: creating awesome content.

Another big marketing tool was recommended using is called Ahrefs, which shows us who links to all of our competitors. Ahrefs is an All-in-one SEO toolset.

In addition to be a great SEO tool, many users said that Ahrefs is a great content marketing tool—not only for helping you optimize your content but also by helping you come up with new ideas for things to write about.

The other thing we do with Ahrefs is plug in our competitors' URLs and look at the terms that a website is getting traffic from. Another Brazilian team member, Mary, makes sure those keywords are within our content and relevant posts. That way, we can get the most amount of search traffic when we’re writing content in Portuguese. We’ve had to really utilize tools well since we started expanding internationally.

Ahrefs is not that expensive and it makes a huge, visible difference.

But, which tool should you use to track time? Toggl! Toggl is an easy to use free time tracking tool for marketing. It makes keeping track of time spent on tasks, projects, and clients easy to manage.

If you need a time tracking app and but can't pay for one, you should use Toggl. The time tracking tool has a generous free tier of service that gives you access to all its apps (Android, iOS, Linux, macOS, Windows, web, and browser extension) and includes all the core functionality you'd expect in a time-tracking app. Free account members can't collaborate with other team members, however, and they get minimal reporting tools. Those limitations aside, if you need to track your time across different projects easily, simply, reliably, and for free, Toggl is the app to use.

One reason Toggl works effortlessly is it doesn't ask much of you when you start timing a task. With many time tracking apps, you have to have a client, project, and task entered into your account before the app will let you track time. If you don't, you have to set your task aside for the time being and enter them. With Toggl, you can track your time now and worry about the details later.

Toggl has a great reporting function too so you can pinpoint where to improve efficiencies.
