10 Google Apps for Social Media Management and Marketing | @scoopit via @rhodanmc http://sco.lt/...

Ahmed Alkandari's curator insight, November 24, 2014 9:03 PM

Google Apps are a cloud-based, hosted service that allows you to integrate a variety of Google products (Gmail, Drive, Calendar, and others). Applications work very well with accounting and finance, productivity, project management, and sales and marketing. All of these comes under Google Apps Marketplace. 

Here is a list of tools that the writer have reviewed and recommend.

1- Wishpond Social Media Marketing Campaigns: 

It offers eight types of social media campaigns in one suite including sweepstakes, photo contests, and group offers. In order to interact with an app that is included, you need to like the page. It's 14 day free trial. Premium plans start at $19 per month. 

2- Blog Upp:

3-Fyrebox:

4- OnFast Social Marketing:

5- Zoho campaigns:

6- Tweasy:

7- e5: Google Apps + WordPress:

8- Web2Express.Social Media Monitoring:

9- Rapportive: 

It's a social CRM application that enables you to view publicly available data about email contacts directly from Gmail including a contact’s photo, list of occupations, location, recent tweets, and social media profiles.

10- Desk.com:

It's a social help desk that features real-time customer support via email, Facebook, Twitter, live chat, web, and phone from a single administrative console. It costs $3 per month for up to 3 people.

 

It was really exciting reading the scoop. It added to my knowledge about Google Apps a lot. All of thees apps and tools are useful to use and access. It helps protect your information and data. It also allows you to monitor your data and your social networks. After reading this scoop, I really advice people to use these apps and to benefit from them. It's also amazing how Google made them all in one as a cloud, were you don't have to worry about loosing informations or data. 

Moreover, most of these apps and tools are free to use. Even for the ones that you have to pay for them, it's actually not expensive and really worth what are you paying for. 

Technology is really developing more and more and it's really important to keep up with thees developments and changes because they are helping us managing our life and makes our life easier.

Guillaume, I got more benefit from your comments on this SlideShare presentation than from the presentation itself. Marketo has done a nice job of pulling together content that is eminently shareable, but without a voice over or detailed presentation notes, it's kind of like driving through a beautiful city in the back of a car, and never being able to get out and experience its true personality. IMHO. I'm sure the Virtual Event was far more enlightening.
Guillaume Decugis's comment, October 18, 2013 11:18 AM
Thanks @jaynalocke ! This is a good testimonial on the value add of human curation and the value of insights. Content without context doesn't work as well.

Being unique at what you do is a privilege; a combination of a creative impulse and an industrious mind ready to bring it to surface. 

An interesting article pointing out again that creativity, any form of a creative expression, has always been and will continue to be THE driving force behind any achievement.

Karen's comments are equally interesting and insightful.
