Quick Sprout’s Lars Lofgren has published a list of 16 best social media management tools that can help you enhance your social media marketing performance.
Lofgren says, “There are hundreds of social media tools specifically designed to make the lives of social media marketers easier.
Hootsuite is great because it has versatile plan options that can match the size of your business and its needs. If you’re the only one using it and you’ve got no more than 10 social media profiles, it’s only $20 per month to use this tool.
But for larger teams and businesses, it has plans for up to 20 and up to 50 social media profiles that can be managed by multiple team members. Those plans go for $99 and $499 per month, respectively.
Hootsuite helps you schedule all your social media posts across all your accounts”.
Quick Sprout contributor Lars Lofgren has shared list of best document management software.
Lofgren says, “If you’ve started looking, you’ve probably noticed there are hundreds, if not thousands, of document management solutions on the market today. Cloud storage tools like Google Drive or Dropbox technically fall into this category as well. But for this guide, I’ve focused on more robust solutions. There are really only seven solutions I would recommend to a business.
The 7 Best Document Management Software
The reviews below include the features, benefits, prices, and any potential drawbacks you should know about each tool.
eFileCabinet is one of the best document management solutions on the market. Since 2001, this company has helped individuals, small business owners, and enterprise-level companies organize data and files online”.
Quick Sprout‘s Lars Lofgren has published an article highlighting the best content management systems.
Lofgren says, “There are plenty of content management systems on the market that are geared towards people of varying technical skill levels. These solutions are not all created equally. If you’re not very tech-savvy and choose the wrong CMS, you’ll struggle to create and manage content on your website. On the flip side, experienced developers may want a CMS with more flexibility.
Regardless of your technical skill level or web-building experience, you can use this guide to find the best CMS software for you.
I’ve been managing web content for more than a decade. After extensive research and first-hand experience using every CMS under the sun, I’ve narrowed down the top ten content management systems for various use cases.
#1 – WordPress— Best Overall Content Management System
More than one-third of the entire Internet is powered by WordPress. This platform is the most popular content management system in the world. It’s trusted by 60+ million people across the globe”.
Creating a new website is a challenging task as you have to come out with new ideas for making your site stand out. With proper planning, you can build a website that attracts large number of visitors.
Quick Sprout contributor Corry Cummings has published an article titled ‘Website Planning in 4 Steps and 20 Minutes’.
Cummings says, “Save yourself a lot of time and headache: before you dive into building your new website, think through a high-level website plan.
This planning process doesn’t need to be complicated or time intensive. It’s more or less about taking the time to answer some important questions that will help ensure you build your website with the right foundation to accomplish your goals.
For example, creating a website to sell products is very different than creating a website for your personal brand. Thinking through what you’ll need to accomplish one or the other is essential to building a successful website. (If you don’t make the right choices now, you may have to tear down everything you’ve built and start over from square one.)
In fact, this planning process is as much about deciding what you do not need for your website, as it is to figure out what you do need. Less is definitely more here. Don’t fall into the trap of adding a bunch of stuff to your website just because it seems like something you should or because it’s what other websites do. I recommend using MindMeister or some other mind-mapping tool to drive this process”.

Quick Sprout’s Lars Lofgren has published a list of best SEO courses and guides on the Internet. Read his article to discover the one that fits into your SEO learning requirements.
Lofgren says, “By now, marketers are business owners all over the world have recognized the importance of SEO. It’s no secret that your website needs to improve its search engine ranking.
What is SEO?
The acronym stands for “search engine optimization.” Essentially, it’s the practice of driving organic search traffic to a website. The keyword here is organic, meaning you’re not paying for a top position through PPC campaigns.
More traffic, more conversions, more dollars. That’s why SEO is a crucial component of every website on the planet.
In my experience, so many marketers and entrepreneurs out there have this false sense of belief that they understand the ins and outs of SEO and how it works. In reality, this is usually not the case.
SEO is like anything else. Unless you’ve gone through practice, training, or some type of education, it’s going to be difficult to master.
Fortunately, the digital era has made it possible for you to learn SEO on your own with the help of online courses and guides. But which ones are the best? I’ve narrowed it down for you”.

Benefits. “We got access to a whole new audience (podcast listeners) and were able to pitch our toolset to them,” explained Rebekah Bek, the marketing manager at Ahrefs who ran the company’s podcast ad trial. “Even if they didn’t instantly convert, we got our name out to thousands of listeners and it did stick.”
Podcasts reach 62 million Americans weekly, and 78% of listeners say they don’t mind ads because they get that it supports the content, making it a receptive channel for advertising campaigns.
Host-read ads have been the primary delivery vehicle for podcast ads, though increasingly, programmatic options have become more widely available”.
