Social media has become an absolutely essential communication platform for businesses and consumers. However, just because they need it doesn’t mean that businesses know how to use it effectively. That’s when they call in social media consultants who can enlist various tools and apps that enhance any social media presence. AdWeek selected seven apps that a social media consultant can use to help them with social media.

Due was named as one of these apps because all social media consultants need to get paid for their great advice, so this is a tool that allows  them to send online invoices and accept all types of payment methods. Other apps that made the list include GetResponse for email marketing automation; Oktopost for social media management; Cyfe for business data monitoring; CoSchedule for marketing activity calendar development; GroupHigh to locate bloggers and social media influencers; and Mention to track social media mentions.
