As a busy businessman, you might not find time to dedicate to your social media accounts. Sometimes, all you want to do is create a post or share a picture. If you are traveling, you will have access to social media accounts only on your smartphone. Or iPad, at best.
That’s where social media apps for your mobile device come to your rescue.
Among social media apps, you have your regular Facebook and Twitter apps. But there are also tons of other apps that help you manage your social media accounts on the go, using your iPhone or other smartphone.
Here are some such apps, for your reference:
HomeBase – Post messages and pics to all your social media accounts. Send a message carrying a link to Facebook as well as Twitter and any other social media sites, simultaneously.
TweetDeck – Stay organized with the content you’d like to share on Facebook and Twitter. It supports only Twitter and Facebook, but also allows scheduling messages to go live at different times to those accounts.
Instagram – This is a great app for capturing pictures on the go. Create visual content in the form of pics, then upload it to, say, your blog. Very handy, indeed.
Path – This is a social networking site where you’ll have only a few, real ‘friends’! Privacy is also its forte. All in all, this is a great place to share your story, complete with pictures and messages. For businesses, especially startups, this is an ideal place to start to build a genuine and loyal following.
LinkedIn – Already famous for its professional bent, LinkedIn is a great site to ensure that your business has up-to-date info on the best professionals working in your industry. Using LinkedIn for researching human resources available can be a major benefit. With the iPhone or Android app, you could be conducting such research on your way to a business conference. Imagine!
Having such apps right there on your smartphone is a good way to ‘keep in the loop’ 24×7. You can manage your blog as well as your business without having to dedicate precious time. Since apps are constantly getting updated and evolving, it is a good idea to visit the app store now and then. And there’s an app for that as well!
