Google’s Campaign URL Builder
If you regularly collaborate with other brands on co-marketing projects or work with influencers on social media, you might want to consider setting up UTM tracking links with Google.
UTM is short for “Urchin Tracking Module” — to put it in easier terms, a UTM is the piece of unique code you’ll add on to the end of your URL.
By adding UTM parameters to your campaign URLs, you can find out where your traffic came from and the route it took to reach you, as well as information about exactly where on a screen your visitors clicked and which keywords were effective.
And the best way to do this is with Google’s Campaign URL Builder — there are 5 parameters you can add to your URLs — source, medium, campaign, term, and content – and each parameter must be paired with a value that you assign.
When your UTM link is created, you can share that custom URL with any of your marketing partners or influencers and easily keep track of how much traffic they generate for your site.
It’s a great way to see what percentage of traffic comes from each of your social platforms too, so you can tailor your content for each.
Google Analytics & Google’s Campaign URL Builder are both free to use!
Facebook & Instagram Creator Studio
Instagram is part of the Facebook family, so a lot of your settings and features, like ads, are managed via Facebook. That’s why Facebook launched Creator Studio — a central place to manage your Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Think of it as a mission control page for your Instagram and Facebook profiles.
With Creator Studio, you can also schedule posts, track engagement rates, monitor comments, place in-stream ads, and manage multiple pages in one place.
And Facebook is always making improvements to the dashboard. For example, Creator Studio was only available for Facebook Pages — but that’s all changed now.
With the new Instagram Creator Studio, creators get access to a ton of new Instagram tools and features, including the ability to schedule IGTV videos. So it’s worth checking it out!

Lightroom is another Adobe favorite of ours and one of the best ways to make your Instagram pics look seriously professional.
With Adobe Lightroom, there are countless ways to manipulate your photos, whether you’re editing from scratch or using presets on the desktop or mobile app.
Once you start editing with Lightroom, even just by using Lightroom presets (which are like “filters”), you’ll start to see your image quality drastically improve, and you’ll start to develop a style that is unique to you and your brand.
And while most people associate Lightroom presets with their Instagram aesthetic, don’t forget that you can carry that branding and style into your Pinterest feed, newsletters or even your website’s images!
