Chrome Extensions for Social Media Productivity
Keeping up with social media and managing social accounts can suck up a lot of time, but there are very simple ways to make the process more efficient. Here are some Chrome extensions that are guaranteed to help boost your productivity and make your job easier and ensure you stay on top of your channel management.
This Chrome extension allows you to bookmark, screenshot, annotate and clip parts of a webpage. It makes it easy for you to save articles, reference information later and saves you time so you can move onto the next big task and return to this without derailing your workflow.
Pro Tip: Create a “Mental Notes & Inspiration” notebook so you can come back and create content based on those inspirations.
Schedule content as you stumble across it and send it into your Buffer message queue through this Chrome extension. It’ll save you time by allowing you to queue up messages for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Pro Tip: The Chrome plug-in also allows you share up to four images in a Twitter message update and it pulls the images from the article you’re sharing. It’s a time-saver since you don’t have to save images to your computer.
3. Save to Pocket
Save articles as you go and search for them later. Saving links also means you can save Twitter updates and Facebook posts from brands or news organizations to reference and share later.
Pro Tip: You can also label your content or queue it up into Buffer.
This extension is really helpful because it catches typos or grammar issues before you hit send on that Twitter update or Facebook post.
Pro Tip: It will also come in handy with your emails.
5. One Tab
You probably have an average of nine browser tabs open at any given time. Minimize that by using One Tab to keep them all in one tab.
Pro Tip: If you have a set list of browser tabs you frequently use, you can create a tab group or “lock” in tab group to keep them lumped together.
6. Export LinkedIn Analytics
Exporting LinkedIn analytics will never be the same after you install this LinkedIn Chrome extension. Simply hover to the dates you’d like to export analytics and the tool does the rest for you. With this extension, you can say goodbye to endlessly scrolling historical information on LinkedIn for monthly analytics.
Pro Tip: The ability to download a CSV file from the Chrome extension is also very helpful.
7. Facebook Pixel Helper
Are you setting up Facebook pixels on your website for conversion tracking? This Chrome extension helps you identify when a pixel is active by alerting you that a pixel is active on a page that you’re browsing.
Pro Tip: This extension is also helpful in letting you know if a pixel you’ve installed on a site is broken or not loading correctly.
I’ll admit, this one is not so much for social media, but definitely a must-have for professionals on-the-go. This Chrome extension allows you to search for promo codes on a website right before you checkout and make your purchase.
Pro Tip: Let Honey do the work and auto-apply the best promo codes for you at checkout to help you save time and money.
