     Hi Michael

    Thanks for putting this blog post
    together, I am often wary of setting up social media accounts for
    businesses because of the time scales involved in updating numerous
    accounts. I have heard of the benefits of using tools like Google
    alerts but until now have never really given it much taught. The list
    you have put together here has inspired me to start using these tools
    to see which would work best for me.

    Nice collection of tools! We’ve been using most if not all of these tools in our social media campaigns. Before, we used to have a sole focus on SEO but now we team it up with social media marketing to maximize the traffic.
