Sometimes it’s hard to know what to post to keep your Facebook followers entertained on a regular basis so, with this in mind, here are my top five tools for sourcing content that has the Wow Factor.
This tool isn’t free, although the basic version starts at just $7 a month, so if you want a helping hand in cherry picking-content that is pretty much guaranteed to grab your followers’ attention, then this is a great place to start. Post Planner covers everything from self-proclaimed ‘scientifically proven to go viral’ images through to random status ideas and a wide range of articles curated from your key words. If you’re new to Facebook or if want to quickly create a buzz around your profile, I highly recommend you give Post Planner a try.
Another great tool that’s free to download and start using is DrumUp, which uses clever algorithms to curate content based upon your personal preferences. It’s quick and easy to use and claims to save you up to 90% of the time you would normally spend on searching for and scheduling your social media content across platforms. Social media pros can upgrade to add multiple accounts and there’s also an option that allows you to instantly cross-platform promote your blog content.
Incredibly easy and equally addictive to use, Pinterest is a great tool for finding and sharing images that make an impact and, what’s more, it allows you to discover some amazing websites in the process. Just login and use the search tool to find thousands of images that match your mood. It’s completely free and lots of fun!
A free to use search tool that quickly shows you the viral posts related to your topics of interest. More of a business tool than a personal search option, you can still use Buzzsumo to generate some great ideas for content of your own – great for those caffeine-deficient mornings when you have a copy deadline to meet.
An absolute favourite of mine and a veritable smorgasbord of content from a vast collection of both mainstream and personalised magazines. Content can be easily re-flipped or shared onto your social media platforms with just a click. It’s incredibly fun to use and might even inspire you to start up a magazine of your own.
