The number of tools out there to manage social media is mindblowing! Some are a little pricey, where others are downright expensive! I am breaking down the tools I think you need to successfully manage your business's social media in the most cost-effective way.

Schedule Multiple Images
This one is a bit tricky. Last year I would have said Hootsuite, hands down. But Hootsuite changed their free account last year really limiting what you can do in the free account.

I love, love, love Tailwind for Pinterest. Pinterest is an awesome way to drive traffic to your website, to your email list, to your e-commerce store...you get it! Tailwind lets you pin a week's worth of content in under 30 minutes. It is amazing! You add an extension to your browser that allows you to take any blog post, photo, or social media post and schedule it as a pin.

Pin on multiple days
All this functionality lets you whip out content so quickly and easily.
