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.

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.

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.

Gain is my best friend!

I love it! Gain is pretty much the most used platform. I've been using for years and it's an easy and efficent way to het things done. Also, it makes my client's approval process easier.

Pros

Gain has been a crucial part of running my small business. As a social media manager, it's great to have a tool that makes the approval part with the client so easy.

Cons

I wish that Stories had it's own option, since I need to plan them for both IG and Facebook. Also, wish the uploading of said content wasn't manual.

Reasons for switching to Gain

It was complicated and since some of my clients are not tech savvy, the approval process for content was slow and frustrasting.

Response from Big Propeller

Hey Emily, thanks for your review! That Gain is pretty much your most used platform and that it makes your client's approval process easier is music to our ears :-) We understand how it's not ideal to have to use a workaround to manage your Facebook stories. We'd love to hear more about your workflow please feel free to contact support to schedule a meeting with our product team so we can improve your experience!

The best social post-scheduling tool I've used

I worked with Gain for a few years and loved it, but then my company switched to another social scheduling platform, and it was a nightmare for both myself and my clients. I had no idea how effective and easy-to-use Gain was, compared with competitors. We're now back with Gain and it's been smooth sailing ever since!

Pros

I love everything about Gain. From a user perspective, it's easy to navigate, and the calendar view is helpful when looking at your month at a glance. It's easy to connect social channels (as long as you have the correct permissions.) When I sent content for approval to clients, I've never had an issue with anyone being confused. it's very user friendly, even for those who aren't tech-savvy.

Cons

Right now GIFS and carousel posts for Instagram have to be manually published, and would love for them to have the ability to be automatically published in the future!

Reasons for switching to Gain

Gain is more user-friendly, for both employees and clients.

Response from Big Propeller

Hi Jackie, we are thrilled to hear that you find Gain easy to use and that you've never had an issue with your clients approving content. We're so glad you're back to Gain and we really appreciate you leaving a review! At this point, the Instagram API only allows auto-publishing for single-image and single-video posts but rest assured that the moment their API allows auto-publishing for GIFs and Carousel posts we'll jump on it. We can't wait!
