There are plenty of social media tools that you can use that will bring both success and popularity with your blog readers and social media followers. These are all of the social media tools that I recommend for both your blog and social media accounts to help you maximize your results faster. I don’t promote anything that I don’t use myself so that I can give you the best recommendation and be able to tell you how these tools have worked for me on a personal level. These are all the tools that have helped me in both the past and the present and I know that they will be of help to you, your blog, and your social media account.
TweetAdder has been a great product for me in the past year that I’ve used it. This is primarily for your Twitter account. It doesn’t do multiple networks, however, the price is right for what it does. TweetAdder will automatically post tweets on your behalf around the clock and you don’t have to be there or anything. Once you purchase the product, it will allow you to download it. Simply fill in the dashboard with your tweets and let it fly! TweetAdder is affordable with it’s one time payment and it’s a great tool to get you started! Watch this tutorial I did on TweetAdder below:
Social Oomph is more dynamic than TweetAdder and, if you’re a social media junkie like I am, then you will find this tool very helpful. Social Oomph, in a sense, does the exact same thing as TweetAdder. Whereas TweetAdder only schedules to Twitter, with Social Oomph, you can set and schedule to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Plurk, and a lot more social media sites as well. Social Oomph where it has a lot more features like showing follower stats, when the best times are to post, and things like that, it’s a monthly fee to use this program. I was skeptical at first to try something like this when I first started blogging because I didn’t want to commit myself to a monthly payment. For 4 months I put it off, until one day I tried it and by the time the month was over I had made my money back plus some! This is having the power of social media in your hand. When you’re able to schedule your social media posts like this, it frees you up to interact and engage with others. A very strong tool to have in your arsenal indeed.
PinRanker is a new product that I have been using for about 4 months now. I really have been trying to get more into Pinterest lately for the traffic and I was doing pretty well, or so I thought, until a colleague introduced this product to me. Believe it or not, just by using this tool, it has single-handedly brought my Pinterest traffic from around 50 visits per day to over 500! There is really nothing more that I can say for this tool except that every blogger needs to have a presence on Pinterest and this will give you one, build your following, expand your reach, and much more!
CircloScope is a Google Plus circle management tool that you can use for free. If you’re using Google Plus for your online business, then I would definitely recommend purchasing the premium version because there are so many things that you can use this that will help you drive traffic and make money. One of the ways I use this tool is to clean up my circle notifications on Google Plus. I also use it to drive more live viewers into my weekly hangout as well which pushed more traffic to the site too.

Blogging Resources I Use
In the world of blogging there are tons of things that you can buy to “help your blog succeed” or so they say. You can literally go broke trying to buy every one of these things, when you really don’t have to. I am successful at blogging simply because I have learned which tools are worthwhile and which one’s actually do no good at all. Here are some of my picks.
CommentLuv is a tool that I first heard about when I started blogging. CommentLuv, even though it’s not operational on this blog, I do have it on some others and it really builds a presence in the blogging community. For self promotion, there is nothing like this product. If you’re not familiar with CommentLuv, it is simply a commenting system that links your blog to other blogs when you comment on them. If they also have CommentLuv enabled (and these days almost every blog does) you can have the opportunity to promote your latest blog post, your Twitter account, and even put keywords beside of your name if the administrator of the blog allows it. Good news! CommentLuv is available for free! However, to get the full experience of this tool I recommend you buy it because there are so many more features that the free version doesn’t allow you to do that the paid one does. CommentLuv is my oldest blogging tool and I recommend it highly.
WPSubscribers is a strong email marketing tool for WordPress. As you know, email marketing is a bloggers best friend. Getting people to subscribe to your email list is just another form of monetization and it is necessary because not only does it promote things that you think are important to people, but it connects them with your blog. With WPSubscribers you can promote your email list in a plethora of different ways. In the sidebar giving away a free gift, as a pop up when people land on your site, as a stationary image underneath your blog posts, and many other features to this tool that allows you to build your email list fast! When I first purchased WPSubscribers, my email subscribers jumped 300%, and that’s the guarantee. The people that opt in to your list will go up by 300% or you don’t pay for the tool. Now that’s strong!
