Every digital marketing professional knows how essential social media profile management tools are for the time they can save you and, above all, for the information they can provide you.

Social networks account for a third of the time we are connected to the Internet, so they have become an ideal showcase for our brands and products.

The first step to follow is to define correctly what your social media strategy will be, a significant step that you will develop in future articles.

Once the strategy is defined, it is essential to have the right tools to manage your profiles and strategies. We look for efficiency and effectiveness, let’s not forget the difference between these two concepts.
