Best Social Media Management Platforms

We live in a world where social media helps build immediate relationships with prospects and clients and can often be incredibly overwhelming.  The best social media management platforms seem to change overnight, and many times the strategies companies are using to amplify brand power can be ineffective at best.

What Are The Best Social Media Management Platforms

Before I go over the list, I want to remind my new readers of Klyn’s Motivational Sales Blog how we got here.  You see, I’m insanely passionate about two things:

1) Reminding you that all champions were built, not born
2) Teaching ambitious salespeople how to improve their closing percentages and rock their sales careers.  Part of this, can be done by being creative and learning how to grow & monetize your personal social media accounts.

There’s never been a better time in history to be accountable for your own social media accounts, especially if you’re in a competitive industry and looking to stand out among your colleagues or competition.

When I set out to build my motivational keynote speaking brand, I got tired of going to conferences only to hear the same content over and over.  None of the insights were particularly profound, and definitely not many were highly tactical.  I think we live in a world where we are starved for insight and actionable content.

The experts time and time again made fluff statements such as:
Schedule your content” 

What’s that even mean?
Content means nothing if nobody finds it. You can write the best book in the world (shameless plug) but if you can’t market it, there isn’t a point.

I made Shark School to teach the hardcore tactics that I discovered that everyone else was afraid to share.

Our first 5 Sharks were able to quit their day job and make money in their own biz.
Then I tried it with corporate salespeople who were tired of getting ghosted from clients, and it worked!

These people didn’t have many followers. They didn’t have much money to put into fancy systems or tech. They weren’t tech-savvy, most of them struggled to figure out Salesforce when their manager rolled it out.

BUT  the Sharks had the work ethic and discipline to do what I told them to do.

They knew they wanted to make more money and wanted the “silver bullet”.
Yet they also knew there’s no such thing as a “silver bullet” but if given the steps, they’d work a$$ off to achieve their dreams.

Strategically planning your posts is crucial to making it.

Now we’re going to teach you HOW.

I’ve reviewed five of the most-talked-about tools to help you (some are FREE)
