In part one of this two part blog, we looked at Bitly, Sprout Social and Hootsuite.  In this post, we’ll look at Buffer, Simply Measured and AdStage. And, a bonus: the breakdown matrix at the end shows how the six social media tools we evaluated stack up (queue sinister music now).

As a quick reminder, these insights were gathered when we recently evaluated some of the social media tools we use for a single client (see part 1 for more details).

Don’t Forget: There are lots of other great tools worth investigating for monitoring, relationship management, content curation and reporting. For example, Mention, Tweetdeck, TweetReach, Google Alerts, Feedly, IFTTT, Netvibes, Klout, Agora Pulse, QuotaDeck, Radian6 and many, many more.
