What tools best assist with lead generation in social media?
For one of my ventures, social media is the main tool I am using to promote the company's products/services. We're currently experimenting with Hootsuite, but I'm curious about other good ones that might be out there. What tools do you use?
In Today's generation I would say Social Media is the foundation for generating leads because they are active and updated in these networks. If somebody changes their job, You can either find out through website ( Top management ) or Linkedin.
Most effective way to generate quality leads from social media is through a tool called LeadGrabber Pro.
It's the best solution I can give it to you because of reasons:
1) You can generate customized leads - Your industry, Your title and Your location
2) You can get their E-mails and Phone automagically ( Valid ones - Mind it )
3) You can easily transfer these emails to your CRM / Plain Excel to start marketing campaign.

I rely on tools including HootSuite and TweetDeck strictly for organizational purposes or as I call it the "It's Monday morning and I have no idea what to post or tweet.' The majority of my time involves focused effort on relationship building and establishing my clients' brands as trusted resources. I avoid the hard-sell and concentrate on ways to gain that trust to the point that the positive referrals from our social media network are some of the most valuable leads generators.
Hi Jen, you are right, Hootsuite is a good tool to publish on social medias.
You can easily post once on several groups on linkedin for example!
Jen, we like to use LeadFerret.com to build target lists of prospects including social media profile links.
Good morning, I believe social media today is the cheapest marketing strategy. I think as much as people tend to think that face book is flooded , it could be a good ground for your promotions. All you need to do is create a page, then invite your friends to like your page. The chain will extend as they will invite their friends, and their friends will invite more. This creates awareness. You can also upload a you tube video telling people about your products.
Radio is hugely efficient for web / social attraction. Make sure the message is clear, connects and delivered in credible style. Clark
One Technique that I use is,
http://qrcodehome.net/make-a-qr-code and link the QR Codes to my social media pages. Which I can then place the QR Codes on my business cards, flyers, coupons etc etc. The company does it all!
I use HootSuite to monitor and schedule posts on Google+, Facebook, & LinkedIn.
I like TweetDeck for Twitter. It's owned by Twitter and it's has some nicer features than HootSuite.
For content curation, Feedly.
You still need spend some time daily on each network as HootSuite is limited as to what you can do.
Blogging at least 3 times a week will drive the leads to your site and then your website plays a huge part in capturing the leads with a compelling call-to-action.
It all works together.
