#1.Hootesuite –  A super way of managing your social activity sites. Schedule tweets and Facebook posts. Measure the impact your tweets are having.

#2. Involver – Make your Business Facebook page stand out with some impressive applications.

#3. SuperGenPass – This tip came courtesy of Christian at CK Solutions. Manage your passwords and safeguard yourself from having multiple sites hacked with this easy to use application.

#4. Fresh Books –  Send out professional looking invoices fast and effortlessly.

So what about you? What tools would you recommend?

  • Hi Greg,

    cheers for sharing some more free tools. I’m still loving annimoto from the last blog like this you posted

    Best Regards

  • Hi Greg. I’m still working my way through your last lot – fair play to you for doing alot of hardwork for us! Animoto for the videos – it really is excellent and very reasonably priced.
    CoTweet for twitter – some like it, some hate it – more of an app than an interface.
    Will check out your recommendations. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comments Brian and Barney. Barney thanks for mentioning Co Tweet. What do you like about it?

  • Hi Greg,
    Loving the hair!
    Had a look at SuperGenPass – can you briefly explain how it works – does it overwrite my existing passwords and does it save me having to remember passwords?
    What if it doesn’t work – can one revert back to the old ones?
    I am skeptical but would love something that would deal with multiple password issues. Thanks 🙂

  • Hi Greg, thanks for sharing. I’m a big fan of Hootsuite too. SuperGenPass sounds like a great idea, looking forward to trying it out 🙂 Cheers, Niall

    Okay, I will do my best. It saves you having to remember passwords and generates a unique password for each account you have, so there are no duplicates. Should you want to revert back to your old passwords you can deactivate SuperGenPass by logging onto your SuperGenPass account. Does that make sense. Maybe try it out with one or two accounts first and see what you think, before committing 100%?

  • Thanks Greg – had a look at the FAQs – it’s an algorithm that generates each new password, so seems safe enough. But it still requires me to change every password I use in each site, to the new “master” password. Otherwise it looks good!
    Thanks for the tip to try a few 🙂

  • Thank you for sharing Greg, I haven’t tried Hootesuite yet but might just give it a shot…. 🙂

    Go for it. Maybe not as nice to look at as Tweetdeck, but has some great features. I use both.

  • Greg,

    Good suggestions and compliments on the post.

    Fresh from the Google Apps marketplace, I would put forward for contact/action management, projects and invoices – free for upto 2 users.
