2. Image and video creation tools – make your content stand out
You need to create great imagery with your content using tools that are easy to use. The problem is that ideally you want unique imagery with your content, but that’s not always possible.
Video is also important on Facebook and it’s becoming increasingly important.
Here are some tools to use.
Canva is graphic design without any graphic design skills. It is an essential tool if you are active on social media because you can create images so quickly.
We create batches of images (groups of images using similar templates) and these can be created very quickly.
Most of the functionality with Canva is free but if you do want to use one of the paid for images it costs $1. Not bad eh?
Cinemagram allows you take a video and freeze most of a video except for a specific part. This makes that part really stand out and it looks pretty cool. Video drives engagement so definitely worth considering.
Time lapses are a technique where videos appear to be hyper-accelerated, by recording a frame every few seconds, rather than the standard 24 frames per second of traditional video. They are really effective in showing things that change very slowly (e.g.: a flower opening) or simply by giving an idea of how life changes over an extended period of time (e.g.: sunset).
LapseIt is a really useful tool for creating these.
SloPro provides you with functionality to slow down parts of your video. For example, you could have some action in the foreground but something moving in slow motion in the background. Pretty cool!
3. Management and analytics
Content that gets good engagement with your audience means your reach increases and that’s one of the ways how to get more likes on Facebook. On a regular basis (at least monthly) you need to analyze what’s working on your page and what’s not working.
There is so much talk about how Facebook engagement is dropping, but it doesn’t have to drop for everyone. If you analyze the content that works on your page you can start delivering more of that content to increase the engagement.
Here are some tools.
LeadSocial provides very detailed analytics on your Facebook page. Add in your key performance data and compare your results against this information.

SproutSocial is a full social media platform that provides very visual and useful reports for Facebook that will help you to get more likes.
You can post the content to Facebook and then track the results.
Simply Measured is more suitable for the larger business as pricing starts at $500 per month. But their reports are excellent and they also provide really good free reports that are definitely worth checking out.
Quintly provides you with a customizable dashboard with a broad range of analytics for Facebook. Easy to set up and easy to provide great reports.

4. Content discovery tools – share the best content
It’s not all about sharing your content. You need to find engaging content that will deliver results.
There are a range of tools that help find content that has already proven to drive engagement on other relevant sites.
You don’t always want to share content that everybody else is sharing but sharing some content that you know works will help build engagement and drive Facebook likes.
Buzzsumo is a really useful tool to find out content that is shared a lot on social networks.
You enter in a keyword (or a website name) and view a list of the top pieces of shared content related to this.
You can sort the column by social network so you can see the most shared content on Facebook.
Pick out some of the most shared and relevant content and share it to your page and watch the engagement go crazy.
Post Planner is a tool for managing your Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.
One of the key features of Post Planner is the content discovery engine. You can do a search of the web and Facebook pages and find the most shared or liked content.

We have found that Post Planner is a great tool for building engagement which results in fans.
Feedly is an excellent tool for catching up on all the blogs you follow. Subscribe to the most relevant blogs and easily share this content directory to Facebook.
To build engagement you need to feed the beast (Facebook) and this is a good tool for doing this.
Scoop.it is a community of people that curate content. They create boards of content based on what they are interested in and then share out this content.
