  • My all-time favourite is Buzzsumo, because it makes it easy to find influencers and connect with fellow bloggers. I have never tried ContentMarketer.io, I think I should have a look. 🙂

    As a content marketer it is quite tricky and takes time to decide which content to promote on social media. Most of us (marketers) use 3-4 different tools to figure out which story to promote and how to adjust our content strategy.

    Currently, we are working on a product (Chrome extension) which uses predictive analytics to recommend content for promotion. It basically tells marketers what (content), when and where to share on social media. It could increase social sharing by 80%.
