Social Media is now an important part of every Virtual Assistant’s life. We use it to network with clients, to promote products/services, to gain knowledge and for other work purposes. As a VA, we have to maximize the use of Social Media even if we are away from our laptops or desktop PCs. Thanks to different social media apps for iPhone and other devices, we can still do our social media marketing task while on the go.
Here are the top on my list:
HomeBase – This is dubbed as social media megaphone. Through this, you can instantly broadcast announcements with links and pictures to all your social media channels (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Tumbler, Flickr, Foursquare, MySpace).
This is compatible for iPhone and iPad for only $1.99
