The 8 Essential Tools That Keep a Social Media Agency Humming | Social media in higher education | Scoop.it
You compete with millions of other blogs on creating and sharing craveable content.

You manage multiple social accounts, seeking that sweet spot of targeted, valuable, engaging updates.

You do this all day, day after day.

Imagine having some tools on hand that make these daily activities even easier.

Tony Restell understands these challenges of social media sharing like few others. As founder of Social-Hire.com, Tony works with multiple recruiting clients at a time on their social media strategy, and his Social-Hire content competes with the likes of LinkedIn, ERE, and other heavyweights for views and shares.
