APPS ALL WEB PRODUCERS NEED
Are you a social media manager? Web producer? Aspiring meme-creator? These are the must-have apps for those of us paid to be on Facebook.
- •Bread and butterTwitter. Facebook. Instagram.
- •Level up with some jamIf you're ready to dive into other social apps try Periscope, SnapChat, WhatsApp, Pinterest, YouTube, Wordpress, Tumblr and Swarm.
- •Managing toolsFacebook Pages is great to help you easily post and monitor the pages you manage. Stats for Twitter and Instagram is a good way to track competitors and growth. Google Analytics or Dashboard for Google Analytics are musts for tracking website numbers. The Hootsuite app is great, but I prefer using it on desktop. Repost for easy Instagram reposting.
- •Creative toolsYou'll want to create some fun content for whatever brand you're working for. Skitch is good for marking up or highlighting an image. Piclab is my go-to for memes and has a lot of options for collages and text. Flipagram makes quick slideshows, which are good for time lapse or how-tos. Photoblend is a pain to use, but the best app I've found to Frankenstein two photos. iMovie for videos.
