Hi everyone, hope you are doing well this week! I’m really
excited to share some of the tools I use to keep me going on all
the social platforms.
Ok, let’s face it. Apps make it easier. I use an app for about
everything, and getting my social media in gear is definitely one
of them. Whether I use them or my VA’s do, I love apps as they can
be easy to work with and also keep your branding on
Here are a few apps and systems to share to keep your team
running smoothly and more productive.
By the way, did you know you can now work with me
ONE on ONE? I’m not sure how long I will be offering this service
but I only work with ONE client each Monday. That means only
generally FOUR spaces a month. So if you want to work with me,
click the link in the
podcast notes or go to lindseyholder.com and book a small business
coaching session with me and I cannot WAIT to help you with your
APPS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA
- Jilly Harris presets: Enjoy this Secret code
JUST for you listeners!!
It is valid now
for 10% off the presets and can be used one time per customer.
I am SO thankful for these presets! I have admired Jillian
Harris’s Instagram feed for years and always tried to perfect her
bright,crisp white lighting in all my pictures but could never
QUITE get it! Then her presets came! I probably was the first one
to buy them as I jumped all over them when they came out! This
makes it SOO much easier to pop in a pic, click on the filter that
looks good and be done with it. I am NOT a professional
photographer, so I NEED a preset. Period.
- After my preset looks good, I download the edited image to my
phone and then use AFTERLIGHT to crop my images to fit that Square
frame for Instagram. After that I put a white frame around them, I
like a 25 border measurement around my image.
- Spacie : This little app makes it so much easier to edit those
annoying line breaks in Instagram. There are other apps out there
that help with the content breaking up into easy to read, simple
lines but so far this one has been working great. I like to type
out my content since it’s faster. I will type out the content in
Evernote on my computer, then copy the Evernote info.fFrom my
phone, pop it into Spacie, hit Convert then paste it into
Instagram. Whew! No wonder I only post 1-2 times a week. It can be
so much work! Well, at least this app is helpful.
- Planoly : I
have used planoly for over two years now to plan out my content
grid. I like to be able to preview what the feed is going to look
like and have been satisfied with it. Also, you can toggle between
accounts which is a plus. They have both paid and non paid options
to use in Planoly.
- Kira Kira: If you need to SPARKLE up your stories, try Kira
Kira. I particularly like using it when showing my skincare to give
it that dreamy, glowy, sparkly effect. They have different types of
sparkle effects and you can control how much or little you would
like. You can do both a still image or a video. I use these for my
Instagram stories, but you could also use them for your posts as
- Her Creative
Studio for Styled stock images. Using original images is great
and I often do that, but having stocked images is essential for
businesses pumping out a lot of content. So the graphic used for
this podcast episode was a styled stock image. They also have
different subscription options to choose from.
- Styled Stock
Society-this is another great resource for styled photography.
New Images are downloaded constantly and you have a different vibe
from the other. I used their image on my
back acne podcast, which fit the topic perfectly.
- Unfold . It’s hard to beat
the simplicity and ease of the Unfold app. Pop a picture in one of
their templates and it gives it a clean, modern vibe in seconds.
You can also use it for videos as well. They have both free and
paid versions and the possibilities are endless. I like to have a
lot of white in my stories, so if there are other colors that are
not in line with my aesthetic, I will select a white frame to put
around the image and it brightens up the story.
- Now for videos, Inshot is
my go to . I use this all the time. It’s great for both stories and
posts. I even use it for facebook ads. An insider tip is using it
to brighten up your videos. They have a great filter option inside
the app and it is easy to brighten up a dull, dark video that
otherwise isn't’ very flattering or brand friendly. If you need to
add music, they have some options you can use or you can easily
download a song as well after you purchase it. There are really so
many things you can do to the video, including speeding up the
video, slowing it down when you need it, cutting pieces out and
duplicating the video if desired.
- Music, check out AudioJungle. I found the music for this
Podcast on AudioJungle and they have a ton to choose from. Any
music you can think of, they have it. You can also decide how much
you want to spend on the music as well so whatever your budget is
it can work for you.
- Headliner app for
making easy audiograms for podcasts to share on social
fonts for my blog, etc and also upload these purchased fonts into
Canva. Sooo many things here: Photos, Product Mockups, vector
graphics, shopify themes, instagram templates, web themes, you name
