SOCIAL INFLUENCERS SHARE THE TOOLS THAT HELP THEM KEEP THEIR EDGE.

Social Media Consultant I love the Linqto app, a Facebook video chat and conferencing service. We broadcast all our Expert Friday sessions at Social Media Examiner using the app. I watch the audience’s questions in the chat and pose them to the expert for that week. Google Hangouts is a way to connect with my co-authors, Amy Porterfield and Phyllis Khare, as we brainstorm on the writing (and rewriting) for Facebook Marketing All-inOne for Dummies. Hangouts let us share documents and screens. And because you can have multiple video windows open at once to see the people you’re talking to, it makes it feel more like an in-person conversation. I also use join.me for screen-sharing. I prefer it when interacting with people who aren’t on Google or Skype, or who aren’t familiar with how they work.

Tippingpoint Labs I really like LiveStream. There’s nothing like treating an online event like a television show to deliver an experience that transcends the normal. The technology is simple so you can be broadcasting live online. The company also touts that it’s become a top destination for content on the web. I’ve also become a fan of Fuze Meeting. It allows a meeting presenter to incorporate dynamic streaming content, along with video, audio and even real-time “sketches” with attendees, making the experience much more interesting, exciting and engaging. I feel like I’m directing a live show as part of an online event.

Whitegate PR I use the online event registration site, Eventbrite, for my events such as New York Dog Party Day 2012. It works for virtual or in-person events. You also can use it to collect donations from people unable to attend, but who want to patronize the cause (we’re doing that for a nonprofit raising money to rebuild Haiti.) It’s easy to create events, manage lists, sync and republish on social media. It’s free if your event is free.
