Streamline your social marketing with these apps
It’s easy to have a love/hate relationship with social media—particular as an entrepreneur. You know you need it to market and grow your business, but without planning and support, maintaining an engaging presence on social can be a time suck and cost prohibitive.
If bringing on paid staff is not an option just yet, keep it scrappy. Try some of the apps below as a creative and cost-efficient alternative.
