Amidst all efforts to create a strong social media presence, whether you operate business applications, websites or automation programmes, there is no room for even minor glitches while marketing brands online. Here are some extensions on Google Chrome that may prove to be useful for those in the marketing sphere.
Why put in extra time and energy on little things while posting on social media or drafting an important e-mail in the age of technology-based tools that can make your life easier and businesses better. Here are five of the most useful and time saving Google Chrome extensions and their uses for social media marketers.
A spelling or grammatical mistake in a social media post, along with other persistent blunders can prove to be damaging for a brand’s credibility and can also be dreadful for social media professionals. Grammarly, the English language writing-enhancement platform, helps marketers by pointing out mistakes that manage to evade the usual red line: an incorrect verb tense, a missing article before a plural noun, or the misuse of a comma.
The purpose of Discoverly is to find out more about the person you are connecting with. The platform reveals every social media information about the person and you can instantly access more social profiles and connections for the concerned. Likewise, while mailing an individual, Discoverly pops up on the right-hand side of the screen with more details about the person you are emailing.
Figure it Out
The popularity of a social media post relies majorly on the number of views and shares it gets. Keeping in mind the time of posting a post is crucial to this, however, the biggest challenge when working internationally is figuring out what time it is in a different region without doing those time consuming calculations on your fingers or asking Google for it. ‘Figure it Out’ allows you to add up to ten time zones to your ‘new tab’ screen, to make scheduling posts or setting up meetings with different regions easier, while also displaying regional national holidays for you to figure out best days to post.
Pinterest’s ‘Pin It’
‘Pin It’ is a great help to remain active on Pinterest. It makes it easy to ‘pin’ any image to your Pinterest page quickly and easily as you search and read, but more importantly, makes it incredibly easy to pin your own images and blogs straight to Pinterest.
One way of getting more integrated with Google+ is by using its CircleCount extension. By tapping the CircleCount, a new Google+ page opens data on the blog post you’re reading, including information on public Google+ pages that have shared the piece, how it’s spread through the network and influencers who’ve interacted with the content. This is a great way to monitor the reach of your own content and engage with users who’ve read your stuff.
