I wanted to share the” must have” tools that I use every day in my coaching practice. Of course this is not an exhaustive list of all of the possibilites- this is a list of what I use, and find to be effective for the coaches that I coach. Organization is important to me and I like to be as effective as possible with my tools that I use. Plus, many of these resources are free or have free initial trial periods.
Social Media Management (assuming you already have a linkedin, twitter and a facebook account).

Http://www.hootsuite.com (I import all of my atoms and push to twitter and facebook, I also use for scheduling posts)
