Social Media Management Tools

Share Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedin

Posting to social media can be sooooo time consuming. Twitter only allows so many characters, images might not display the same in different accounts, links show up differently, it’s not easy to cross-post quickly and make messages effective.

Often my clients end up ignoring one channel in favor of another, so they miss people. I have several clients who are now using social media management tools, so when I saw this article reviewing some of the top tools, I thought it was worth sharing.

Print and Online Ads

More work for my favorite non-profit!

They wanted to advertise their Kitten Stress Reliever program, where volunteers would bring an assortment of adoptable kittens to your workplace for a Kitten Break. I came up with this series of ads:


























Video Tools

I’m always learning about new (or at least new to me!) tools for creating video.

Here I am playing with the Corel FastFlick tool that came with the purchase of a different Corel product. This shows the fun we have trying to take “family photos” each Christmas.

Video from PowerPoint

I regularly make videos from PowerPoint presentations for myself and for clients. This process includes creating the PowerPoint, writing the script, using Camtasia to capture the video and voiceover, editing the video and publishing.

Check out our YouTube channel for a few examples.

Program Promotion

A local non-profit wanted to promote their Humane Education program to local schools, but they needed to update their advertising materials.

I created a trifold flyer as they requested. It was very popular as a printed, hard copy flyer to insert in mailers and hand out in person to prospects. But as an attachment in an email it was not as attractive – most people don’t print an attachment and then fold it appropriately, so it didn’t represent very well.

I suggested we reformat the trifold into a one page flyer for use as an email attachment.

E-Commerce Management project

A client had an existing e-commerce solution that needed updating, including adding new products.

I entered products from printed catalogs, scanned artwork from provided images or collected them from sites provided by the vendor, and edited the images to fit the parameters allowed by the e-commerce tool.

Online Presence & Branding project

A client was subscribing to a communications package that offered a simple website tool. She wanted to use it to create a basic, brochure site for her company listing her “vitals” – location, contact information, what they do, etc.

We set up the site using the available tool. It wasn’t terribly flexible but we were able to incorporate all of her branding and colors. In addition, I cleaned and matched other online listings (social media, Google, Manta, etc.) and added a link to the new website in all locations.

Website Redesign project

A client had several websites created using several different tools and wanted them all merged into one. The website required a secure portal and unique URL’s for easy access to separate sections of the site.

It was a very complicated process, but I was able to migrate all of their websites into one Joomla site with a secure portal with several levels of access.

Prior to migration I cleaned all of the site content to remove old and redundant information, updated graphics and created a relationship with Happy Dog Web Productions for ongoing Joomla hosting, support and service.
