Social media planning tools

Social media is one of the foundations of internet marketing today. They allow you to present your brand and products to a wide audience, easily reach new customers and direct contact with existing ones. Being present on the largest social media platforms is therefore an absolute necessity in most industries at a certain stage of the company’s development.

However, conducting extensive marketing in social media is very demanding. Each platform in social media has its own rules – it has a slightly different user profile, puts emphasis on different elements and uses a different technology, so that the marketer has to adapt to the communication code prevailing there. Usually, we will not post the same content on a TikTok or Twitter profile (or at least not in the same form) as on Instagram or LinkedIn. For this reason, when running company profiles on various websites, we have to generate a lot of different content, tailored to a given website.

In addition, it is necessary to use separate applications for each medium, and sometimes, in addition, to switch between several profiles within one platform – all this in real time in order to answer customer questions as quickly as possible and react to current events. It cannot be denied that in terms of logistics, this is a huge challenge.
