social media toolsAre you looking for powerful tools to manage your social media efforts?

How do you keep up with blog post comments, responses to LinkedIn status updates and Twitter interactions?

Social relationship management is about managing these relationships. And you need the right tools to help.

In this article, I’ll show you 3 new social media tools to help manage your online relationships and grow your presence on social media platforms.

#1: Engagio—Manage All of Your Online Conversations in One Place

Engagio is an inbox for conversations on the web. It tracks your conversations, your friends’ conversations and you can even track any conversations you’re interested in through the search feature!

With Engagio, you have the functionality to manage, support and encourage conversations.

Features

It’s very easy to set up and free to use. Here are some of the top features:

  • You can track and respond to conversations that you initiated.
  • You can follow people to track conversations. Engagio allows you to follow conversations from other Engagio users or from friends you communicate with online. For example, you may identify influential people and track where they engage online and what they say.
  • The Engagio dashboard shows a summary of the interactions you have with your connections. This highlights whom you are talking to and whom you may not be talking to enough.

    engagio contacts interactions

    The Engagio dashboard shows a summary of interactions with your contacts.

  • You can send an internal message to other Engagio users. This helps continue the conversation privately.
  • You can initiate conversations in your social networks and send status updates to your social networks.
  • You can respond to conversations that start in one of the supported platforms. For example, if you comment on a blog, you can be notified of responses through Engagio and respond directly within Engagio. This response on Engagio will be updated on the blog.
  • You can search for conversations on topics using keywords and keep track of them via email alerts so you can decide when to start engaging in the conversations.

    engagio search conversations

    Search for conversations that you may want to engage in.

  • The Engagio mobile app (currently in beta) allows you to continue these conversations while on the move.

Setup

It’s very straightforward to set up your Engagio account. Register an account by connecting to your social network of choice and then select the networks/commenting systems you want to connect with.

engagio connecting accounts

Select your platforms. You can then follow some people. By following them, you can keep track of conversations they are having.

When you log into Engagio, it displays an inbox that contains the responses you receive from conversations initiated across the networks that you configured in your Engagio account.

Here’s a summary of some conversations. It displays the people involved in these conversations and the original topic of the conversation.

engagio inbox

Your Engagio inbox shows a summary of the conversations you are involved in.

All you have to do is click on an item in this list to view the full conversation it refers to.

engagio reply within engagio

You can view conversations and reply to them within Engagio.

In this example, the original conversation was initiated through a comment on a blog. The subsequent response from the blog then showed up in Engagio. Even though the final comment was made from within Engagio, the response also appeared in the conversation thread on the blog.

It’s very easy to lose track of conversations. While some blogs and websites provide email notifications when someone responds to your comment, a lot of them don’t.

Engagio simplifies the management of these conversations by enabling you to monitor, track and respond to all of your conversations within the same interface. Why monitor numerous websites when you can just monitor one?

Benefits

There are several reasons to use Engagio.

  • You’re able to track your comments/interactions in one central place. This makes it easier to manage your social conversations and encourages more interaction.
  • The dashboard shows your engagements in a leaderboard style, which helps you assess if your level of engagement with key people needs to be improved. This is great for building relationships online.
  • You’re able to track conversations from key people you follow. This enables you to see what others are interested in and also gives you the opportunity to join conversations.

Summary

Social media is great for building relationships, but with so many interactions it’s hard to keep track.

Engagio provides functionality to monitor, track and respond to conversations from a variety of platforms in one central place.

It is free to use, so try it out!

#2: AgoraPulse—Better Market Your Business on Facebook

To get the maximum benefit from Facebook, it’s important to use a management tool that provides functionality to improve engagement, grow fans and help develop business for your company.

By using a management tool such as AgoraPulse, you have the tools required to manage your Page effectively and get maximum performance from it.

#3: Pingraphy—Manage Your Pins on Pinterest

Pinterest is an increasingly popular site where people identify images on the web and share them on Pinterest. When they select an image, they “pin” it and this image then gets pinned onto a virtual board that displays the pinned images.

There are some useful tools available to help grow your presence on Pinterest.

Pingraphy is a tool that allows you to schedule pins on Pinterest.

When you browse the web, you may come across various images that you want to pin and you may find several images you like on one page.

Pingraphy identifies all images on a page and allows you to select which images you want to share and when you want to share them.

Features

Pingraphy is a relatively simple but effective tool with a core set of features. Here are the main ones:

  • You can select all images on a page and make them available for pinning.
  • You have the ability to pin a group of images at the same time or at later scheduled date.
  • There’s photo editing software so you can modify pictures before uploading them.
  • Pingraphy provides analytics to track repins, likes, clicks and reach for every item shared.

Setup

To use Pingraphy, you’ll need to have a Pinterest account. When you have a Pinterest account, go to Pingraphy.

You now need to connect your Pinterest account with Pingraphy by entering your Pinterest login details.

pingraphy registration

Use your Pinterest login details to create a Pingraphy account.

Once registered, the next step is to add the Pingraphy bookmarklet to your browser’s toolbar so that you can pin things instantly.

pingraphy bookmarklet

Drag the Pingraphy bookmarklet to your browser's toolbar.

Simply click on the Pingraphy button and drag it to your browser’s toolbar.

In Pinterest, you create boards that are like virtual pinboards. When you find images that are relevant to a board, you pin them to the board.

For example, if you are a wedding organizer and you have a “Stunning Dresses” board, you could go to a wedding designer’s website. And when you see something you like, all you need to do is click on the Pingraphy button in your browser.

Pingraphy recognizes the images on the page and lets you create pins with the ones you like.

pingraphy select images to pin

Pick the images you want to pin to your board.

By default, all images are selected. Simply deselect any images you do not want to pin by clicking on the check mark in the top left of the image.

Next you need to enter a brief description of each image. The URL field allows you to enter the web address for the image you want to share on Pinterest. This generally goes back to the source where the image was found.

Finally, you can decide whether you want to schedule pins for later or upload them now.

pingraphy schedule pins screen

Enter descriptions for each image and schedule when you want them pinned.

At the time of writing this article, you can delete a scheduled pin from the dashboard, but you cannot change the scheduled date and time. So when pinning multiple images, make sure you want them all uploaded at the same time. The ability to choose a different date and time for each image is due to be implemented soon.

You also have the option to edit the images to enhance or improve how they look. Click the bottom left-hand part of the picture. You can then modify the image by applying an effect, cropping it, rotating it and much more.

pingraphy edit image

Edit the picture before pinning it to enhance how it looks.

When you upload images, you can track statistics on the items pinned such as the amount of repins (other people pinning items already pinned), likes and comments.

pingraphy stats

Pingraphy lets you track the images you pin.

Benefits

  • You can schedule pins to deliver them at the most appropriate times for your audience.
  • You can save time when you upload more than one pin at a time.
  • You can easily pin items on a page that may not already have the functionality to pin.
  • Pingraphy analytics is useful to track which pins work or don’t work.

Summary

Pinterest is growing in importance. Tools such as Pingraphy help you manage content sharing on Pinterest. This also saves you valuable time and provides you with useful analytics.

Final Thoughts

Management tools are becoming increasingly important as social media continues to grow.

By implementing the right tools, you can become more efficient and effective with your social media efforts.

    Ian,

    A lot of meaty information here — Thanks for such an inclusive set of insights!

    I’m curious to know more about AgoraPulse applications, and their pricing programs.  Seems like a really nifty tool, and I plan to check it out.

    Have you taken a look at PageLever’s Competitive Streams at all to compare & contrast it with AgoraPulse at all?

    Pingraphy — I’ve been hopping more and more over to Pinterest, so scheduling a pin will be helpful.  Also like the editing feature.  

    It’s like an early stocking full of social tools…  :)

    Before reading the above post I had never heard about
    Engagio – wonderful tool for all social media expert  and Pingraphy – best tool to manage pins on
    pinterest.

    Special thanks to Ian.

    Again SME Team you rocks..:)

  • http://arnoldwaldstein.com/ awaldstein

    I’m a big fan of Engagio. 

    It does everything you say…and a lot more.

    Certainly the social web is fragmented and messy by nature. It’s social afterall. To me, Engagio is like a social ringtone keeping me connected to a multiplicity of ongoing interactions.

    It rocks at that.

    But the gem under the covers is discovery. I love to be organized and directed. I embrace discovery even more so and to me, Engagio extends my networks and supercharges discovery more efficiently, implicitly and explicitly to new conversations and connections.

    In full disclosure, I’m an Advisor to the company. And a true believer.

    Hi Keri,  I haven’t spent much time looking at PageLever’s competitive streams but I will do now!!  Glad to fill up your social media stocking!!!  Thanks for the feedback.  Ian

    Hi Arnold, thank you so much for the feedback.

    Great review Ian. I should add that Engagio (www.engag.io) also released a new homepage that features top articles, comments and commenters for the past 24hrs. The home page is rich in information but is not overwhelming and it uses responsive web design so it automatically will adjust to the different screen sizes. Thanks again for the very useful review!

  • http://www.windycityparrot.com WindyCityParrot

    Pingraphy is very cool BUT when you try to assign boards, they are not alphabetized. We have 144 boards currently so until they resolve this issue it’a too cumbersome to sort through 8 pt fonts trying to find the right board.

    As it is we use ctrl F to sort through boards when pinning which is a problem that needs to be tackled by Pinterest

  • http://about.me/kirsten.lambertsen Kirsten Lambertsen

    I second Arnold’s comment.

    Engagio makes it much faster and easier to find conversations on topics I want to monitor be involved in. I’m using it right now, in fact. I’m another true believer :)

  • http://twitter.com/MysPalmer Mys Palmer

    Ian i’m really liking engagio. Thanks for the tip. Social media is nothing if not ever changing. Overload is a natural side effect. Your suggestions just may curb it. Grazi!

  • http://FromOverwhelmedToOrganized.blogspot.ca/ Hilda

    Love the idea of scheduling pins with pinography!  Also plan to check out Engagio.  Looks like it could be a real time saver and I pretty much always forget to check back on posts that I’ve commented on so this will help my conversations go more in depth.  

    A few questions before I jump in though:1.  If you’re using Engagio for comment threads on various blog posts, how do you set it up for those specific posts?  2.  When you reply in Engagio and it automatically replies on the website you were originally using, does it show up differently than if you’d commented directly on that website (i.e. does it say “via Engagio” or anything like that)?

    3.  Similarly, when you schedule a pin with pinography, does it show up differently than if you’d just pinned it directly?

    Thank you so much for these fantastic links!

  • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

    He Mys,  thanks for your feedback.  Yes I think it will help you organize your comments!  All the best, Ian

  • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

    Hi Hilda, In Engagio when you connect your various accounts (e.g twitter, disqus etc) then when you comment it will automatically appear in engag.io.  When you comment it does not show that this is a comment coming from engagio.  Similarly with pingraphy, there is nothing that indicates it’s coming from pingraphy.  Thanks for you feedback.  Ian

  • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

    Thanks for the feedback. It’s a pity that feature is not available.  Hopefully it will be implemented soon as there are new features coming out soon.  All the best, Ian

    I actually like the Pingraphy it seem easy to use and effective. I will set up an account and let you know how I feel about it. In another hand the Engagio is a must for me at the moment do you know if you can use other social media platforms like CafeMom? I know some of these tools have the main social media to connect with.  Thank you for the post. 

  • http://www.windycityparrot.com WindyCityParrot

    Thank you for listening – how will we know when this issue is addressed?

  • http://influitive.com/ Abdallah Al-Hakim

    The advantage of following an engagio user is that you track them on all of their connected social networks. For example, you can track their conversations on twitter, google+, disqus, etc… But as @iancleary:disqus you are not limited to following only engagio users!

  • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

    Thank you for your comments.  I am delighted that you found the post useful.  Ian

  • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

    Thanks Abdallah

  • http://www.SquirrelSocial.com/ Jared Lamorte

    I agree Buffer is a very powerful tool. However, with all the new social media management tools available, they each have their own way to schedule and organize tweets. So much so, that there’s no reason to use a separate app like Buffer, if the scheduling function is built right into an app you’re already using.

  • http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian Cleary

    Hi Jared,  you make a very valid point. Ian

  • Gary Moore

    Pingraphy has changed their name, but can’t remember what to.

    Gary Moore

    that is good for small business

    Hi Gary,  their name is still pingraphy.  I don’t think there are any plans to change it!  Ian

    I absolutely love Pingraphy. I have a marketing job in the crafting industry, and Pinterest is where it’s at! Pingraphy has saved me so much time and energy, and by being able to schedule my pins, I am able to hit the times when our fanbase is active (evenings and weekends) and I’m not in the office! LOVE IT! The other day, my craft design team made a project that had 16 different photos… 16 different pins. I was able to stagger them over the whole evening by clicking 3 buttons. The design team later told me they thought it was awesome I had pinned every single one. They had NO idea. I <3 you, Pingraphy!
