User friendly , easy to navigate and visually appealing

Time saving, more professional.

Pros

Visual previews of all content, ease of sharing content for approval with clients, ability to export content as a PDF after approvals, automatic scheduling to Facebook or Instagram

Cons

Inability to tag Facebook accounts (although this is due to a Facebook privacy change), customer service can take a while (due to us being located in Australia), posting more than one image to a post automatically shares it as an album (which we don't always want).

Response from Big Propeller

Hi Lena, thanks for your review. We are glad to hear that GAIN is helping your team to save time. We wanted to address the issue you faced when including multiple images in one post being shared as an album on Facebook. A couple of months ago we implemented changes to the Facebook posting to make this work in the way that you actually expect. GAIN now uses native Facebook multi-photo posts. This means multi-photo posts now use Facebook's scheduling engine (useful for boosting posts before they're published) and there's no need to create an album just for the photos in the post. If you have not tried posting multiple images since then please do, and let us know how it works for you! Thanks!

Use Gain app to effortlessly schedule social content across multiple channels

Pros

The Gain app is so easy to set up social media channel marketing across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn (plus other channels). We use the calendar view to easily know which posts will appear on specific channels. Posts can be scheduled and we trust they will deliver on time. One of the best features of the app is the review and approval process. We can send posts out for review and monitor changes and approvals. We work within a compliance-controlled industry and this review process is critical to our workflow.

Cons

The Gain app is really solid but one aspect of the app that can be improved is the ability to sort and prioritize content tags. We can search the content tags to find specific posts but it would be nice to be able to order the tags by our preference to aid in search.

Reasons for choosing Gain

We chose Gain over Hootsuite based on a lower price for Gain but also because of a high recommendation by our agency partner.

Response from Big Propeller

Hi Curt, thanks so much for your review! We're so glad that the approval workflow and the activity tracker are working well for your work in such a highly regulated industry as banking. That's exactly what we set out to do when we designed Gain! Thanks for your suggestion to improve the content tags, our team has been discussing how to improve them so your feedback is timely. Also, we just made our roadmap public so our users can see which projects we're working on, upvote their favorites, and even suggest new features. We invite you to take a peek! You can access it from your Account menu in Gain.

Approval System for multiple companies

Amazing system

Pros

We use the system for the cost effectiveness to manage 5 social media platforms and to obtain the approvals from the [SENSITIVE CONTENT] so the process is streamlined

Cons

All seems good our social media manager uses it all. Some larger files he finds are too big to obtain the approvals so he uses emails

Reasons for choosing Gain

We had Hootsuite but now cancelled it.

Great product but struggles to address key issues

Pros

It's easy to use, lots of good tools for agencies, far better than other similar products

Cons

Every now and then bits of the tool break. The most recent has caused major problems for us and the clients but seem to be a low priority for the GAIN team. For example, in this case, posts are not displaying properly on LinkedIn. We get these issues aren't always in GAIN's control but would appreciate more urgency and communication around the problem.

Each day better

Really good. It solves almos all my needs in Social Media Managing.

Pros

What I love the most is that the Gain team is always looking to improve this software. I used it a year a go and importante changes have been done.

Cons

I think it could be better automating the stories publishing and adding stickers in the app.

Reasons for choosing Gain

Because gain allows me to review the calendar easily, a think almost any other similar product don´t alllow.
