The life of a marketing manager is usually chaotic with the one thousand and one things that never seem to end. Smart marketing people know that to retain sanity, they need to automate with love. What do I mean? Automating the things that remove the clutter and cut down to genuine face-time with your potential or existing clients.

It can be hectic deciding the best tools that save time and money (and we really want to save as much as we can, don’t we? :).

Below are three lifesaving tools you need to become awesome at your job:


  1. Hootsuite for social media management:

Tired of jumping from one social platform to another? Try Hootsuite.

Hootsuite helps you manage and track what your customer is saying online about you or your brand all in one place. You can easily pull all your social platforms on your single Hootsuite account for tracking questions and sending instant replies. It works across all platforms – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you can connect them all together and get reports instantly. No more hopping about.

Hootsuite also sends you a weekly analysis of your activities including number of clicks per day, geographical information on the people clicking through your site, and most popular links. The application keeps you in touch with what is going on online, especially as it relates to you.

  1. Google Alerts for Media Monitoring
