Prevent social media overload

by racheliliadis

Send Tweets, update WordPress, upload photos on Flickr, change the Facebook status and check into Foursquare. Repeat. Maintaining Social Media can be exhausting. Before long, you end up spending the entire day glued to your iPhone, clicking the refresh button every 5 minutes waiting for new Tweets and updates. There must be an easier way to enhance your online presence.

Fear no more. I’d look to introduce you to Sprout Social. From communication tools and contact management to competitive insight and analytics, Sprout offers a way to organize all your social media in one place.

Sprout is a new tool for businesses to manage and analyze their presence on social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Yelp, Twitter and Foursquare. Ultimately, Sprout effectively allows businesses to track their presence among multiple social media channels. Pretty dreamy if you ask me.

Mashable, a leading online social media guide, is a fan as well.

“Sprout Social is a solid offering for the smaller brand or agency; it offers robust management tools, and it’s still affordable.” – Mashable

For $9 per month, your small business will get the basics. This includes 5 indentities that allow you to attach multiple networks (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn) to each identity. Features include web monitoring, contact messaging, and performance metrics to name a few.

For businesses who want to upgrade, Sprout offers Sprout Social Business for $49 per month. That package includes 10 identities and expanded social networks, such as Foursquare and Yelp. This also includes enhanced features such as geotargeting and the ability to create daily specials.

Social media and networking is only going to become more intertwined and essential to manage. Thank goodness for management tools like Sprout or we’re all going to go crazy from Social Media overload.
