Having the right tools can help you build upon your talent and help you better take advantage of the opportunities presented to you. I wouldn’t be able to do as much as I currently do with my social media and influencer deals if not for these six apps that I use on an actual daily basis, so today I’d like to share them with you!
1. ToolWiz Photos
This photo editing app is a life changer. I’ve been using it for a few years now and even when I’ve played around with other photo apps, I keep returning to this one. The adjustment options are vast, including options to add text, clipart, hundreds of filters, and more. I do all my photo editing with this app because a.) I don’t have a professional camera, and b.) I don’t have Photoshop or comparable software. But, so far, ToolWiz has given me what I need to make the most of what I have.
Keeping followers interested in your content across platforms sometimes means sharing content from other sources. Crowdfire is an app that brings you content, media, and news from various sources around the internet for you to share to your social media accounts AND it reminds you of your optimal share times. This keeps followers engaged in your pages and it really works. Plus, they have followers and unfollowers built in so you can track your numbers and who is interacting with you and how.
3. Followers Insight
You need one of these apps. You just do. If you’re going to stay on top of your numbers, you should be using an app like this. I like using Followers Insight because it not only shows me who followed me and who unfollowed, but also who my most engaged followers are, who the least engaged are, who posts the most, the least, and who has an inactive account (that last one is important for me because before I downloaded this app I had been following close to 300 accounts that were no longer in use and hadn’t been in months.) I highly recommend getting an app like this.
If you’re trying to break into the reviewing game, probably the best place to start is Influenster. Sign up is free and what you receive and how often you receive is all based on your social media reach. For higher end/more expensive items you will obviously need higher numbers, BUT I received my first Influenster “VoxBox” when I only had about 200 followers. Signing up will help you learn what companies ideally want and it will help you build your review repertoire, so to speak, so other brands can see what you do.
Desygner is a very cool app that helps you build content for pretty much any network. (I used it to create my social media kit that I send out to brands I’d like to court.) I love the designs available in this app and how easy it is to use. It just helps you step your content game up a little bit more.
This GoPro owned app allows you to import media and create gorgeous, artsy videos for social media. It comes with pre-made “themes” that have their own effects, transitions, and fonts associated with them, as well as a small library of free music you can use with your videos (or you can add your own music). This super easy app will give you gorgeous results with minimal effort. I highly recommend trying it out.
And those are 6 apps I use on a daily basis and can’t live without! Using them has really helped me grow my audience as well as better the quality of content I release so I hope you’ll check them out and see how they work for you!
