A while back I wrote a post on the best social media management tools for small-business owners. I researched and reviewed a handful of the least expensive, most versatile options, but the comments included some lesser-known alternatives that seemed worth investigating.

- Schedule posts.
- Connect numerous social media accounts.
- Provide analytics.
- Shorten URLs.
