Social media apps simplify online marketing

July 26, 2012 Maradyth Mobile Marketing

With the tremendous increase in social media popularity, social media sites now serve as  platforms where many small businesses promote their products and services online and enhance brand visibility. Businesses that are successfully using this marketing tool are spending anywhere from 6 to more than 20 hours a week on social media. Can you afford to take that amount of time away from your business? Most business owners can’t.

However, since social media give small businesses the ability to monitor what people say about them online, while also engaging customers and gathering feedback to improve products and services,  you also can’t afford to ignore the social networks.

Free apps for media tablets can help small businesses manage their social media presence in one place, saving business owners valuable time. Streamlining online marketing activities and making the process more efficient is the goal of social media management sites such as HootSuite. Several social media offer their own free app as well. Here are a few:

MyPad App
HootSuite Apps
LinkedIn Apps
Twitter Apps
WordPress iOS App
WordPress for Android App
