Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.

 

However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.

Martin Gysler's insight:

I don't know you, I prefer a solution that would allow posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

I wonder why this is not the case in all social media tools.

How To Get More Out of Triberr

How To Get More Out of Triberr | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Triberr’s Mantra


Triberr’s mantra (or mission statement, if you went to business school :-p ) is to help bloggers be succesful.


And to bloggers, “successful” means three things:

  • Content distribution
  • Content generation
  • Engagement

1. Content Distribution

This is where Triberr began.


Triberr enables bloggers to form tribes and effectively establish a long-term Tear 1 supporter networks.


Since everyone on Triberr is a blogger -and therefore audience builder- each share is worth much more than a share by your average Joe Facebook user. Gross generalization of course, but accurate for our purposes.

Information graphics, visual representations of data known as infographics, keep the web going these days. Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.


Who can resist a colourful, thoughtful venn diagram anyway? In terms of blogging success, infographics are far more likely to be shared than your average blog post. This means more eyeballs on your important information, more people rallying for your cause, more backlinks and more visits to your blog. In short, a quality infographic done well could be what your blog needs right now.
