Managing social media—whether on a freelance basis, for an agency, or for a enterprise employer—can be a daunting and time-consuming task. But with the help of an awesome social media management platform, you'll find that running multiple social accounts can truthfully be done both efficiently and effectively.
That in mind, we built Social Report with a fairly simple vision: offer a dashboard with every single feature a social media manager needs, at a great price, with exceptional 24/7 customer support. Of course, over the last eight years, what we do has evolved into something much more...let's say much more complex and proportionally more lovable. But don't take our word for it—just listen to our users.
Below you'll find seven of the key reasons social media managers love Social Report. These are the "WOW" moments that come from running through prospective customers our demos, the feedback from current users across multiple software review sites, and other little bits that seem to make their way back to us as time goes on. So, without further ado...
1) "Wait, I can talk to a live human if I pick up the phone?"
People are always excited to hear that no matter what plan they sign up for, they’ll always get friendly & quick help whether through the phone, email, Skype or social DMs. We're proud to offer 24/7 live support—especially in an industry where the majority of tools look to cut corners by outsourcing their customer support to foreign third parties or only offering support for a select few hours throughout each work day.
2) Competitive pricing
Freelancers, small businesses and agencies are always astonished at our pricing. Averaging at just $10/month per brand managed, we are very competitively priced, while not sacrificing on any of the features. Interested in seeing how we stack up against other tools?

3) Direct to Instagram scheduling
Having to send mobile notifications for posts when managing multiple brands can be a huge hassle. Through our marketing partnership with both Facebook and Instagram, we are able to provide users with direct post scheduling to Instagram (meaning you can plan and schedule all of your Insta posts from our dashboard—no workaround or mobile action required).
4) Access all your photos & videos in one place
Our users love the ability to connect their external folders like Google Drive, Dropbox, and One Drive and have access to any photos or videos without having to manually upload to SR each time.
5) Edit your photos like a pro
Saving time by being able to edit photos within SR is another jaw dropping feature we get a lot of love for. Whether it’s cropping the image for more suitable Instagram aspect ratio, watermarking the photo or creating Memes, our photos editor is very powerful—and also help those social media managers and teams that don't have the cash to pay for Adobe Photoshop or other expensive image editing software.
6) White-labeling options
Agencies love to be able to brand our platform to have a more seamless integration with their website, which ultimately provides a better and more custom experience for their clients that want to login to review content/approve publications.
7) Historical analytics
Users love our ability to go back in time to retrieve historical data to provide them analytics for reporting (on the networks that support it, of course). Having access to historical analytics is great for building a report on comparing performance before an agency takes on the management of the brand’s profiles.
No one said managing social media is easy—and that's certainly not the case when managing multiple business profiles or accounts across multiple networks. But with the assistance of a social media management platform like Social Report, you might just find that it can be done effectively, efficiently, and without costing you an arm and a leg.
