From coordinating design teams to managing social media accounts, most marketers have their hands full. And when you’re constantly juggling projects in so many different areas it can be hard to focus on excelling in just one.
Here at Brandfolder, we know a thing or two about software tools and how they can make marketers lives much more efficient. To help you sort through the chaos of your daily marketing life, here are our favorite tools for ultimate productivity in the areas of design, social media, analytics, email and content optimization.
1) Design: Visage
Visage is an excellent user-friendly platform that makes it easy to create branded, data-driven content. This data visualization tool helps brands create compelling graphs, charts and imagery that’s relevant to their audience. With Visage, non-design savvy marketers can create stunning designs that are perfect for social sharing.
2) Scheduling: Calendar
Time is one of your most precious assets, and Calendar is dedicated to helping you use it well. With this tool, you can let anyone choose and book a meeting time directly on your Calendar. Plus, it will protect you from any pre-existing or conflicting meetings being scheduled at the same time. With features like one-click scheduling, time-zone recognition, and AI designed to develop a customized experience, you have one cool tool. Check out their Productivity Habits Guide for Business Owners to learn how Calendar can boost your productivity.
3) Analytics: Mixpanel
Mixpanel is great for any marketer who is serious about tracking and improving customer engagement. By providing extensive insight into how users are behaving on websites and mobile apps, marketers can understand patterns such as how long users spend inside an app, or which website buttons are clicked most often.
4) Email: MailChimp
While there are dozens of great email marketing tools floating around the web, we love MailChimp for its straightforward user experience and all around slick design. This savvy email brand offers extensive analytics such as link click statistics, industry averages and reason for bounce, all compiled into easily digestible graphics.
5) Content Optimization: Scribe
Scribe makes the content marketing process more efficient by suggesting keywords and phrases based on your audience’s preferences. Once you’ve completed a draft, Scribe helps you optimize it even further by offering tips and tweaks that’ll make your content do well in search engine rankings.
