Nurph. A Home for Your #Hashtag.

Nurph- a home for your #hashtag- twitter tool.


Pagemodo is a bit of a hybrid multi purpose social tool that is combination of scheduling and photo images and pages. It is geared towards everything you need to create and run your facebook pages- from scheduling to photos, cover photos, post designer, custom tabs, contests and Facebook Ads. It also works with twitter at a somewhat lesser focus including twitter headers. It's not as hefty as a hootsuite or buffer, but it does have a schedule system for facebook, twitter and LinkedIn. What's really great is that if you use a lot of visual (and the number of people who interact with photo posting versus not is very high) PageModo include photos in any of the posts that you do easily.

While not publicized as a key feature, pagemodo may be the solution for you if you are looking for a lot of beautifully designed short posts for your website. With pagemodo you can:
Choose from hundreds of professionally designed post themes, created with marketers’ needs in mind. Perfectly sized for social. Promote your business, design an ad, or just make your followers smile.
Make your social posts reflect your brand with high-quality imagery from our free stock image library. Then get your message across with our beautiful fonts, shapes and more.
Share your post right away or schedule updates to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn with just one click. One tool to help you stay connected through multiple social networks.

If you have the right coding or widgets, you can post what you post on social media onto your wordpress or other website- so this can give an easy way to fill your site with beautifully composed short posts (that you can probably easily add to as you choose.)

With the current promotion at time of writing, Page Modo is $79.50 a year or $9.90 a month. This shows about a 50% savings over what they say are their regular rates- although compared with the competition, these rates would be more in-line with the going market in these areas.
