  1. I took 2 months off – studied the top 500 social media marketing tools, became an expert on all of them but when I started to use them today – they we’re all obsolete. I’ve found the more technology you sandwich between you and the end user on social media, the less social you become.

    • That’s a good experience, @WindyCityParrot! But I don’t think it’s a matter of tools and technology. We need tools to create conversations. I think it’s more a matter of choosing the right ones for your business -not many. Having a wide choice like the ones in this post, however, helps me have a quick look to some of them I may not have thought before to create relationships. But I wouldn’t go to try all of them, just select the interesting ones wisely.

      • “We need tools to create conversations” yikes, always thought my brain was the best & only tool for that. what is that you use to create conversations @benet?

        I’m just saying the more tools we use in social media the more we insulate ourselves, however few then we remove ourselves incrementally from the end users

        If you’re going to automate a post to Twitter do you plan on going to Twitter to look at at it? if so not why not post directly to Twitter while you;re there and see what’s going on? why not have some real conversations instead of just pushing sewage you’re never planning to look at again?

        btw – there are no relationships on social media. A Tweet has a half life of 6 minutes a Facebook post, 4 hours – that’s like calling 30 minutes with a prostitute – a relationship

  4. What a huge amount of resources you’ve given us here. With all of these websites and blogging sites available I feel I have lots of tools at my fingertips. Social media has incredible opportunities, although sometimes it can be overwhelming to research it all. Your article gives me lots of ways to browse and explore ways to improve productivity. Isn’t that what we all want. I mean, that and a vacation, too.

  5. I think you really have to pick and chose the best tools for you. As a small business, it is hard to keep up! To really use a tool you have to try it for awhile and see if it really
    Suits your objectives
