A cut above the usual social media scheduling tools, MeetEdgar cuts out all the time-intensive parts of running a social media account by automating them for you. Working across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, all you have to do is upload posts divided into categories. MeetEdgar will then sort through and automatically start posting these out from each category, recycling older updates once it runs out of fresh content. It can also automatically generate posts for you based on articles, picking out quote-worthy text – all you have to do is click share. Let Edgar handle the boring parts of social media management, so you can focus on the bigger picture.

10. Monday’s new recurring tasks tool
Monday has been part of our digital marketing toolkit for a while now, allowing us to plan, organise and track projects in an easy-to-use collaborative space. However, in February we tried out the site’s new ‘recurring tasks’ feature. We all have regularly occurring jobs in our workflow, whether its Google Ads optimisation or checking SERPs. Making a task recurrent produces automatic duplicates for certain dates/times, meaning you don’t have to concern yourself with recreating the same task over and over again. Thanks for the automation, Monday!
