    Social Media Marketing Strategies 2016Would you like to improve your social media marketing?

    Are you up to date with the best social media tips, tools and strategies?

    I have recently learnt a lot with Mr. Kaven Lee who is a Content Crafter at Buffer. He’s shared many tips, tools and strategies for those who’re using social media for their businesses to get followers, keeping them engaged and convert them into customers.

    I mainly use the following social media tools to automate my social media, save time, grow my followers and to keep them engaged:

    1. Buffer App – it is a smart way to share and schedule great content on social media. It’s very effective and easy-to-use app (that works on Desktop/Mobile). You need to associate all your social media profiles and pages here and then keep scheduling and sharing on all social media platforms within a few clicks. It saves my 90 minutes a day; what I used to do in 120 minutes, now I can do the same in less than 30 minutes a day and credit goes to Buffer.
    2. Snip.ly – it helps you bring traffic back to your website, even if you’re not sharing your own content. You can add a call-to-action to every link (content, articles, news, images, posts etc.) you share!
    3. PostPlanner – not sure what to share on social media? Stop guessing what works, PostPlanner discovers amazing content (that’s already been liked/shared by thousands) for your audience.
    4. Canva & PlaceIt – these tools help you create stunning images – without even knowing anything about graphic design/Photoshop etc. Say goodbye to your graphic designer who takes a week to design a small social media photo for your update.

    I’m sharing some of Kaven’s tips (in videos) that show how he’s getting results with social media marketing today. I recommend that you read Kaven’s another article How to Create a Social Media Marketing Plan From Scratch first, before watching these videos:
