The 15 best Google Chrome extensions for social marketers
Your day is going to be busy. Like always, right?
Posts to write, images to create, hashtags to monitor, followers to reply to. All that and (much) more for your busy social marketing day.
Open a new tab in your browser. Momentum will show you something beautiful. It’s a soothing way to start your day. And to plan just the right amount.
- See a land that’s gorgeous
- Read a quote that inspires
- Write your one big goal for the day
- Then a few tasks to achieve that goal
- Check out the local weather, too
Now… go do your busy work. With a focus. And see this each time you open a new, blank Chrome tab.
Muzli is another way to be inspired every time you open a new Chrome tab. It’s centered around design.
I bet you’re always looking for new, visual inspiration for your social media posts.
Muzli presents you with a visual feed of the latest, hippest, most excellent designs of the day.
- See and scroll the images on your new tab
- Click one you love
- See more about it in a new browser window
- Start over, choosing something from one of the 20 or 30 feeds. Or create more of your own.
And don’t keep what you see to yourself. I use Muzli to show and share great designs with others, too.
But, you can only use one ‘new tab’ extension at a time. Which one will you choose?
Work can become a blur when you’re doing your social media thing, right? From left-to-right brain tasks all day long. While viewing inspiring, interesting and useful things in between.
Then being baffled by… where to put this?
And so does Evernote. With their web clipper to save web pages, links, comments, screen shots, ideas, and anything else you see in your digital view.
- Hit a button
- Select your clip format—For the entire or partial portion of a page
- Give it a title (optional)
- Same for a tag
- Click Save
…Then find it later.
Out of site, out of mind, but not out of reach. No need to change your brain gears every time you see something worth capturing or sharing.
Spelling and grammar errors happen (just ask my Hootsuite editor).
But stop this you must, because your social fans and followers will frown. And so will your boss, as your personal and brand credibility suffers.
But don’t cry. It’s an easy fix with Grammarly.
This extension catches spelling and grammar errors galore.
- Hit a key to open the Grammarly editor
- Type away
- See what Grammarly has to say about it
- Review, accept or reject the suggested changes
- Paste everything into your new post, page, comment, or share
Polish before you publish.
A handy tool if you work with people around the globe. Because it’s not easy keeping track of different time zones.
In your brain, it goes something like this…
“It’s 3:30 here, minus (or is it plus) 8 hours there (I think)… equals… Wait, is it daylight savings here? And over there?”
Figure It Out to rescue.
Use this extension to make scheduling posts or meetings around the globe super (duper) easy.
- Add a timezone, up to 10
- See the current and correct times for each location
- Post and schedule away, quickly and confidently
I told you it was easy.
Like Momentum and Muzli, this extension shows up as your new tab screen. Now what?
Do you ever want to share access to an account? Say for a social network, SEO tool, or Google Analytics? But without having to share the password for that account?

Use LastPass to remember only one…
