Social Media influencers work hard – very hard. They need any edge they can get, and they need tools that can save them time, and can help them with faster, smarter and yet super sophisticated, customized deliveries. Here are a list of the 11 best Google Chrome extensions that I use for my Mishu.Underdog :

1. Socialpeeks Influencer Analyzer, offered by: socialpeeks.com

I use this tool many times a day to see where I am!

The No. 1 KPI for SMI* is engagement rate, which is usually calculated as the quantity of your followers, divided by the quantity of Likes and Comments per post.

As a SMI you want to keep the engagement rate UP up up so the social platform algorithm will make sure you show up in their users’ feeds. Socialpeeks is tool that I choose to display my account engagement rate, in real-time. All you need is to login once to their server, and from then on, clicking on their icon on the Chrome toolbar will display this:

2. Crowdfire, offered by: crowdfireapp.com

Mishu uses Crowdfire for scheduling and publishing content on social media channels. With Crowdfire there is no platform that you cannot post to – whether it is Twitter, Facebook, Tiktok, Blog – anything, and in a simple, fast way (you can re-publish too). You can fully customize each post if you’d like – the number of words, the wording, media attached, etc.

Admittedly there are many tools and chrome extensions to schedule content. I believe I got my hands on this tool through a special holiday promotion, and have liked what I’ve seen since then. Yes the price was right, but the functionality is awesome too.

Price: 0-$75 – the more accounts, the higher the price is (yet they often have special pricing for the holidays).

3. vidIQ Vision for YouTube offered by: vidiq.com

At the beginning of the year Instagram made an incomprehensible move – they deactivated what used to be the @DearMishu main account (see Mishu’s video about that here). As a result, I decided to open an alternative to Facebook’s empire of products – and to swim in YouTube

vidIQ – a service via Chrome extension – helped so much, mainly with finding the right tags, keywords, trends, competition, subscriber analyses, what not. It’s a very high value tool for YouTubers.

Price: Free for awesome basic

4. RiteTag, offered by: https://ritetag.com

I don’t use RiteTag too often, as I love to find interesting hashtags manually (it’s like finding a treasure – one can be very creative with those hashtags). But sometimes, when I have no clue which hashtag to attach to Mishu’s posts, I will take RiteTag’s advice. RiteTag has hashtag suggestions for text and images, which is cool:

5. Emoji Keyboard – Emojis For Chrome, offered by: coolfont.org

SMI use emojis allllll the time. Emoji Keyboard is the Chrome extension I use to insert emojis into anything through Chrome – Instagram comments, emails, docs, blog posts, etc. It’s so simple to use – click on the tool icon on the browser toolbar and either reuse an emoji you previously used, or enter a search and find a new one, like 🧤 !

6. Asana, offered by: https://asana.com

Asana is my main database, as well as my go-to detailed productive tool. I enter everything there – potential partners, amazing Cortado coffeeshops, videos to create, content ideas, licenses, ideas for the future, potential conferences to speak at – all is possible!

My Cortado Coffeeshops DB on Asana – it’s so convenient as you can search it by city, level of coffee making, etc – the sky is the limit!

Asana’s Chrome extension is wonderful, because you can bookmark the webpage you are on, and associate with to a project that you are working on about to work on, and – if interested – associate it with a date to do, without leaving the page. Very productive!

7. Workflowy Web Clipper, offered by: workflowy.com

If Asana is my productive project management tool for details and databases, WorkFlowy is like an orchestra conductor for it all. It shows me the light, for both private and business purposes…

I believe most of you haven’t heard of WorkFlowy, and what a pity that is. WorkFlowy – available on all possible platforms – is a web-based or app tool. It helps me organize my thoughts, ideas, directions, priorities, almost anything, in a minimalist, and very pragmatic way:

  • You can draw your plan for the week.
  • You can add a calendar
  • Once you write a certain goal, you can associate tasks to someone from your team (or to yourself, don’t be a snob…) right from it.
  • You can add a web clip to ANYTHING that you’ve written so far (for example a blog post about Chrome extensions on a Chrome extensions initiative).
  • Want to associate a date to an item? A file embedded in it? That’s possible too.
  • Tagging? Of course, tagging and searching something fast is one of the best parts of WorkFlowy. As you can see I love it a lot…!

Price: Free for awesome basic.

8. Pinterest Save Button, offered by: pinterest.com

Unfortunately Pinterest is not a social media platform. However, I do use it often to catalog images and videos- it’s so helpful! Examples: pin pix you want to publish, or success stories from your content or visuals to explain a concept:

9. Bitwarden – Free Password Manager offered by: https://bitwarden.com

Bitwarden is available on all platforms, all OSs, and so it’s really nice to have it doing the task for me of remembering Mishu’s user names and passwords on all those millions of influencer-brand matching services and websites (most of them useless – read here) :-), I highly appreciate the work Bitwarden did for us all.

Price: Free for individuals. $3.33/Mo otherwise.

10. Zoom Scheduler, offered by: zoom.us

You’re an influencer, famous even. People want to know you, they want to talk to you, and make an appointment with you… You may like to use Skype, Meet from Microsoft, or Instagram rooms to speak with people, but those are not as common as Zoom. Everyone is on Zoom now, and that’s the main way to communicate via video online noways.

RELATED  "I just wanted to share this blog about the lack of transparency in the influencer marketing industry"

The Zoom scheduler Chrome extension lets you schedule fast and conveniently Zoom meeting sessions for your week and year, as well as start a meeting. This is done by clicking on its extension icon on the tool bar, in just few clicks, without leaving the browser. How convenient is that!?

Price: Free for awesome basic

Pro note:

Meeting the brand team (or the exact person...) offline is often the best way to start a brand deal negotiation.

11. Save to Pocket, offered by: getpocket.com

Save by Pocket chrome extension for influencers
Save by Pocket chrome extension is very useful for influencers and all…

It’s just as hard for SMI to do multi tasking as it is for anyone else. We explore so many Instagram posts, important industry articles, webpages, images, etc., and we have to bookmark them somewhere, so we can get back to them. Pocket – a forever tool to save anything (almost) is here to help. You save those items to the app, so you can read it (offline is possible) later.

I also like the read for me feature on Pocket – where it can read you articles, while you are closing your eyes, or walking with your dog.

Using it is very simple – anything you want to save you just click on the Pocket icon and boom, that’s it, it is saved. Then, opening the Pocket app on your phone (or browser) will let you read the articles anytime, anywhere.

Price: Free

Good luck my influencer heroes!

Disclaimer – Use with caution – I like and use those apps and services for my Mishu. However, Chrome is made by Google and please don’t consider this my endorsement or recommendation of Google and its platforms. Its products still have severe privacy, tracking and censorship issues to work so… so use with caution.
