Social Media campaign tools give you flexible campaign and advertising tools for running campaigns on all the major social media platforms. They provide a quick and easy method for setting up customer engagement campaigns, from templates for quizzes, surveys, and sweepstakes to white label options with full CSS editing and iFrame functionality. These tools can focus on a number of campaigns goals (e.g. driving engagement or collecting leads) and have powerful social sharing features out the box but with custom options ensuring each campaign can be tailored accordingly.
So without further ado, here are five useful social media campaign tools, which we've placed in order of what we think most useful.
ShortStack is a self-service platform to build engaging campaigns for social, web and mobile such as sweepstakes or voting contests. Boost engagement and also use to capture leads. This tool helps businesses of all sizes build campaigns from the ground up, through templates and drag-and-drop functions, but can also build campaigns in-house for businesses. It presents a great tool for quickly and easily launching social media campaigns.
The platform features more than 30+ widgets, 30+ themes, and 90+ templates to build contests and sweepstakes, special offers, landing pages, custom forms and host them. The tool integrates with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Spreadfast is a social media management system that enables companies to monitor, manage and measure cross-platform social media initiatives. This is a great tool for businesses that need to harness their social content and to use social media to both better understand an audience but also manage better their customer service via listening tools. It offers scheduling tools that can be used with reports that are very useful.
Through an easy-to-use interface, this tool breaks tasks up into easily accessible tools; to start and store connections made, curate the best social content to republish, target audiences, create promotions and schedule content.
WooBox lets you easily create powerful contests, sweepstakes, coupons, and more to grow fanbase and amplify marketing. Like Shortstack, this tool is available for free and offers businesses the ability to create and launch social campaigns. For paid for plans, bigger businesses can remove the restrictions and also take advantage the inclusive Facebook advertising tools.
This tool offers businesses the ability to create and launch social marketing campaigns, but also have functionality to streamline Facebook advertising with ad tools.
Pagemodo is a social marketing platform for small businesses to create a consistent and engaging visual social media presence. Modify Facebook pages by improving cover photos, adding custom tabs, creating contests and scheduling posts. This tool is best aimed at smaller businesses to help them to manage Facebook pages, but users can also easily share branded and coordinated content across Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, print collateral, and other platforms.
This tool offers businesses the ability to create and launch social marketing campaigns as other tools do, customise Facebook pages and schedule content, and also set up Facebook advertising.
Tab Foundry lets you easily build quizzes, sweepstakes, games, photo contests or custom tabs for Facebook pages. Like other social marketing campaign tools, Tab Foundry is available for free and offers businesses the ability to create and launch social campaigns. This tool offers greater flexibility in terms of design, however, and therefore may be the most suited to use at agencies on behalf of clients.
Businesses don’t have to use pre-determined layouts to launch Facebook campaigns – users are given full control over look and feel, and widget design
