In 2018, social media marketing is even more tough because more businesses have begun to publish on social media. Your audience is less likely to notice you among excessive numbers of social media posts.

That’s why using social media marketing and blogging tools has become more important now than ever. Doing so can save you time and make your social media marketing efforts more effective.

Here’s a list of 7 brilliant chrome extensions that you can use to manage social media without leaving your browser.

1. Grammarly

As a social media marketer, you have to multitask and create content for various purposes through the day. When doing so, it’s not hard to slip-up and make a few errors. But when competition gets tougher, presentation becomes even more important. Typos could seriously affect your social media reputation.

Grammarly is a writing-enhancement tool that you can use to check your grammar and writing style. Grammarly’s Chrome extension alerts you on-the-go of mistakes occurring within your browser.

2. DrumUp

In 2018, there’s a lot of value in establishing yourself as a great source for curated content on social media. That’s because there’s way too much content out there. Your audience is likely to appreciate having only the best content served to them by one reliable social media page.

DrumUp is a social media management tool that you can use to curate and schedule social media marketing content. You can use DrumUp to schedule both sourced content and original content. DrumUp’s Chrome extension allows you to share any article on the go, so you can share something when you find it, instead of making a mental note to share and then forgetting to do it.

3. Check My Links

Broken links affect your SEO ranking. But few website owners have the habit of checking their links on a regular basis, because doing that adds one more task to a list of necessary daily tasks.

With the Check My Links Chrome extension, you can check for broken links without leaving your browser. The tool crawls through the web pages that you have open and highlights broken links in red, problematic links in yellow and safe-to-use links in green.

4. Momentum

When managing social media marketing, it’s easy to get sidetracked. One minute you’re looking for content ideas, the next minute you’re scrolling through completely unrelated social media posts, wasting a lot of your time without getting any work done at all.

Momentum is a tasks list dashboard that launches every time you open Chrome, once you have the app installed. The tool’s dashboard serves as a reminder of the tasks you have yet to accomplish, so you are compelled to stay focussed through the day.

5. Figure It Out

Social media has opened up the opportunity for small businesses to target a global audience, giving small business owners access to markets that they never could reach before. But one of the biggest issues social media marketers face when working with a global audience is that posting at different times becomes a necessity.

Figure It Out is a global clock app that lets you add up to 10 time zones to monitor. You can refer to the app to check the time in different time zones without having to figure it out manually.

6. OneTab

Many social media managers spend a good chunk of their time scouring the internet for content to share. Such managers also spend a good amount of time reading content from different sources. When working with multiple tabs and content sources, it becomes difficult to keep track of all of your thoughts. You may end up closing certain tabs and losing important sources.

OneTab is a Chrome extension that bookmarks all tabs you have open at any instance, when you click on the tool. You can use it to save tabs for your future reference and to ensure that you never lose an important tab.

7. Pinterest Pin It

The world has begun to move to more visual forms of communication and social media marketing managers shouldn’t be too slow to follow. While you can invest a ton of time in creating visual content, it’s simpler to just make the most of the visual content that you already have.

The Pinterest Pin It Chrome extension allows you to Pin images to the social media platform with one click of a button. You can begin by pinning your existing visual content. Save the blog post covers or infographics already on your blog to your Pinterest account.

2018 may be tough on social media managers who have to deal with increasing volumes of content and decreasing exposure, but with the right efficiency and effectivity tools such as the Chrome extensions on this post, you can continue to make an impact on social media.
