As a digital marketer, you know that new tools are coming out all the time. The only way to find out if they work for you is to actually try them. Lists like this one can help narrow them down and give you a better idea if they will help you do your job better, more efficiently, and help you gain a high ROI. Here are 10 of the newest social media marketing tools that will help you get the job done expertly and efficiently.
Social media marketers and digital marketers, in general have to read a great deal to stay updated on the latest and greatest. Like tools similar to these, for instance. Narro comes in a bookmarklet, Chrome browser extension, or an app for iOS and Android. It converts text articles into audio files so you can take your reading with you and listen while on the go. This is a great way to save time and get all of your reading done when you are stuck in traffic or driving to different client appointments.
2. Newsfeed Burner
I know this is likely a problem for most social media marketers: you log into Facebook to handle a client’s page and before you know it, 30 minutes or even an hour has passed while you’re scrolling through your feed. Well, Newsfeed Burner is a great Chrome browser extension that hides your Facebook newsfeed. Your feed disappears, but you can still go to pages or groups.
Todobook is another great Chrome browser extension that helps prevent you from wasting time on Facebook. Instead of completely blocking your Facebook feed, instead it replaces it with a “to do” list. It won’t disappear until you check all the items off of your list. It is a great way to stay focused and on task.
This is an iOS app that is perfect if you handle a lot of Twitter direct messages. It basically works like Facebook Messenger. It gives you more control that the Twitter app and has other advanced functions in the app such as a search bar for people, emojis, text, photo, and map capabilities, URL links, and the ability to block or unblock users.
5. Just Good Copy
Whether you struggle with coming up with copy or are just having a little writer’s block, this free website offers inspiration. You can search for certain keywords or choose them the tags they have. Email copy help is just a click away!
6. TouchRetouch App

Having too many browsers open is a common problem for social media marketers. TabCloud solves that problem in the best way possible because it allows you to manage browser tabs by opening groups of bookmarked websites all at once. Even better is that TabCloud is a free resource.
8. Write Behind
