eClincher is a powerful tool used by social media professionals and agencies to efficiently manage multiple social media profiles and Google My Business pages. With its support for a wide range of platforms including Instagram, Google My Business, and Pinterest, users can create posting groups for different clients, making it easy to stay organized. The platform's ability to consolidate engagement across various platforms, such as Facebook, Google My Business, and LinkedIn, into one place is highly valued by users.

One key use case of eClincher is its effectiveness in implementing hyper-local strategies through the management of Google My Business profiles. This feature enables users to optimize their presence in specific locations and effectively engage with local audiences. Additionally, eClincher streamlines content planning by allowing users to fill content calendars in advance and leverage automation features. The software also provides insightful social stats reports that help users track performance and make data-driven decisions.

For agencies and professionals providing social media services to clients, eClincher proves essential. It facilitates collaborative management by enhancing productivity and saving significant time in executing tasks such as scheduling social media posts. Additionally, eClincher empowers users to efficiently gather and respond to messages, comments, and reviews across multiple platforms.

While the majority of users appreciate the value eClincher brings to their social media management tasks, it's worth mentioning that some have expressed dissatisfaction with the company's decision to rescind their lifetime deal plan for AppSumo users, considering it unethical. Nevertheless, this does not diminish the overall usefulness of eClincher for scheduling social media posts, tracking performance metrics, monitoring sentiment, and identifying potential influencers.

Overall, eClincher is a reliable platform that enables efficient management of social media profiles and Google My Business pages. Its comprehensive features enhance productivity and provide valuable insights for professionals and agencies engaged in effective social media marketing strategies.

Support for a diverse range of social networks: Users have commended eClincher for its extensive support of various social networks and seamless integration with sources like blogs, bit.ly, Google Analytics, and Google My Business. This feature greatly enhances workflow efficiency.

Efficient management of posting groups: Many reviewers appreciate the functionality of posting groups in eClincher. They can effortlessly create 1-click groups to ensure consistent messaging across all client profiles, even without access to individual brand accounts. This streamlines the process and saves valuable time.

Valuable workflow management tools: Users find eClincher's workflow management tools highly beneficial. The platform offers additional features such as connections to free stock photo services, Google Analytics, and bit.ly for tracking statistics and measuring success. The convenient Inbox feature enables users to efficiently manage comments, messages, and reviews from multiple client accounts on a single screen.

Appearance: Not visually appealing, but not a dealbreaker. Several users have mentioned that they find eClincher's appearance to be unappealing. While this is not a dealbreaker for them, it is worth noting that some reviewers have expressed dissatisfaction with the visual design of the app.

Bugs and glitches: Occasional lock-ups and form breaks require full refresh. A common concern among users is the presence of bugs and glitches in eClincher. Some reviewers have reported experiencing occasional lock-ups or form breaks that can only be resolved by performing a full refresh. This leads to a less than seamless experience while using the app.

Usability and functionality: Lacking, additional development needed. Some users feel that eClincher's usability and functionality are lacking, attributing it to being still relatively new. They suggest that additional development and UX/UI testing would improve the app's functions. It appears that there is room for improvement in terms of user-friendliness and overall effectiveness of the platform.

Users recommend trying the trial version and attending a demo call to explore all the features of the software. They highly recommend it for managing content on social networks and believe it is the best tool for managing social media. Users also suggest adding hashtag analytics to the software and praise the active and quick support provided. They recommend the software for improved productivity, planning, and organizing social media content. Users also recommend it for managing multiple brands and platforms, as well as for monitoring multiple social profiles. They believe that the software offers great value compared to other platforms and is the most complete among them. Users advise comparing its cost and features to other platforms and suggest making improvements based on provided feedback. Overall, users highly recommend giving the software a trial, appreciating its functionality, and finding it worth the time to learn how to use it.

eClincher was a good product until they decided to rescind their lifetime deal plan for AppSumo users. This is not only a bad practice but super unethical. [I believe that] they launched on AS, grabbed early adopter reviews to help boost their company, then they took away the lifetime deal blaming AppSumo instead of taking responsibility.
  • [In my experience] they know how to bait and switch users
  • [It's my belief that] the team is super unethical.
  • [In my opinion] their business model can't be trusted as they don't take responsibility.
  • Honesty with customers.
  • Do not blame AppSumo.
eClincher was a great tool until recently when they decided to rescind their lifetime deal plant their early adopters. Usually, LTD community platforms tend to add plans with more features in order to compensate for their early creations and thus leaving it open for the LTD community to opt-in to the newer plans or keep what they originally got. Unfortunately, eClincher completely stripped the lifetime deal and [in my opinion] blamed AppSumo, claiming the lifetime of the platform has ended since it's no longer supported in the AppSumo store... yet they continue to operate. So instead of taking responsibility, they blame AppSumo.

We use eClincher to manage our social media channels. For me, it is huge that they work with Google My Business (GMB), as that is the main focal point of my hyper-local strategy. We manage our Facebook, GMB, and LinkedIn pages with eClincher in the firm's marketing department. It allows me to view our engagement all in one place. We also fill our content calendar well in advance with it, use automation features, and view reports regarding social stats with it.
  • Scheduling and duplication
  • UTM codes
  • Reporting
  • Auto-posting with queues
  • Monitoring
  • Intuitiveness is somewhat lacking with some workflows.
Best suited for a marketer that cares about reports, needs a social media management platform and doesn't want to pay more for a more aesthetically pleasing version of a platform with the same or less functionality, such as Hootsuite or Sprout Social. For a social media marketer that wants to automate some of their postings, the queues feature is great for this functionality.

Not best suited for beginners to social media, as their platform is best utilized with someone familiar with the industry that knows what they are doing. Their chat support team is very good though, but this type of individual might find themselves spending a lot of time on the platform.

eClincher is currently being used to schedule social media posts and track performance. It's also being used to monitor incoming sentiment and discover potential influencers talking about our games.
  • The "Articles" feed (nestled in the Influencer tab) is an unexpected delight. It can track articles by keywords and even tell you how many influencers are discussing them.
  • The scheduling feature is basic but reliable. No real issues with it yet!
  • eClincher's customer support team is fantastic. They reply quickly and if they can't solve my problem, they take it to the engineers who can often fix situations by implementing new features to the dashboard. I'm continually amazed at how well they react to user feedback.
  • It's not very visually appealing, but this is not a dealbreaker.
  • The reporting features could definitely use some work. I still get more value from the native SNS pages, but this is quickly changing. They removed the "export to CSV" functionality, but they plan to reintroduce it soon. As mentioned previously, they really respond to criticism well and update the tool constantly.
  • The inbox could use some work. I don't like being directed offsite to view certain comments deemed "requests for further info" when they could just easily display them there.
If you are on a tight budget and sick of comparable options, this is the ideal solution. For an incredibly reasonable price, this can do everything I need to manage social media for a handful of mobile apps simultaneously. If you have infinite money, handle massive brands, and harbor huge expectations for powerful social media tools, you should go with one of the pricier options. But keep in mind, this will end up being the difference between $99 USD a month, and $3,000 USD a month. You need to really decide what you need before making that leap because, in the mobile world, it's often the case that money like that is best allocated elsewhere.

My agency uses eClincher to manage the Social profiles and Google My Business pages for all our clients, as well as ourselves. Since we have multiple clients with different social needs, numbers of profiles, and posting frequency, we needed a solution that offered us lots of flexibility without increasing costs. One of our biggest hurdles when choosing a Social Media Management platform was finding one that supported a wide range of platforms (Instagram, Google My Business, Pinterest) but also allowed us to create posting groups for our different clients. eClincher was one of the few (if not the only) platform that offered everything we needed.
  • eClincher supports nearly every social network and connects to a large number of sources (blogs, bit.ly, Google Analytics, Google My Business). This makes workflow tremendously easy.
  • Posting Groups. At higher levels of service, eClincher allows you to set-up individual brand accounts. My agency isn't at that level, so we utilize eClincher's posting groups to make 1-click groups that post to all of the profiles for each client. This allows us to quickly post a cohesive message across all channels.
  • Workflow management: eClincher adds plenty of additional tools to make your workflow fast. Connections to free stock photo services make it easy to add generic pictures to your content. Google Analytics and bit.ly can keep track of statistics and measure success. The Inbox allows you to handle all your clients' accounts from one screen (including comments, messages, reviews, and more). The Feeds and Influencers tabs allow you to understand your market and what's being said. Altogether, eClincher makes a 1-app solution for Social Media Management.
  • Appearance: I don't mind the bare-bones look of eClincher (I like the functionality, and would rather have more functions than form). But, I think eClincher will continue to be a successful competitor to some of the bigger Social Media Managment SaaS with more attractive front-ends.
  • Bugs: There are a lot of little bugs that pop up that make for less than seamless experience. Occasional lock-ups or form breaks that need a full refresh to reset are particularly noticeable, though not unexpected.
  • The App is still new, so much of the usability and functionality is missing. Some additional development and UX/UI testing should improve the App functions.
  • When you post a message across multiple platforms, sometimes the post or image isn't in the correct format (e.g. too many characters for Twitter, too long of a video of Instagram). It would be convenient to have a quick solution to post a variant for that channel. As in, if I craft a post for 5 different networks, but it is too long for Twitter, give an option to edit the Twitter version of the post without changing the other platforms. [Right now, my solution is to copy the information, remove the channel in question, schedule the post as is, then create a new post specifically for the offending channel. Not an elegant solution, but still easier than posting directly to the channel.)
We are a small, boutique agency with a limited number of clients. Our clients, in turn, have social profiles on 2-6 different networks each. At our current portfolio, we need more profile connections than most SMM can offer, but fewer than a massive enterprise option. eClincher is perfect for smaller agencies that can't justify the cost of some massive SaaS solution, but still need an SMM to save time and craft cohesive messages.

It is bare bones and little harder to use than some of the other more established SMM programs out there. Because of that, there is a learning curve for people who aren't as familiar with computers. eClincher is better from an agency side, but may not be the best solution to resell to a client.

eClincher is a lynchpin in our ability to provide a great service to our clients. Both myself and my creative director use it on a daily basis in order to schedule content, monitor competitor content and keywords, and produce reports. As an organisation it enables us to be hugely productive and it saves us a significant amount of time against undertaking the same activities individually. I would not be without it.
  • eClincher enables me to produce white label reports showing statistics and illustrated with graphs. These are produced in seconds against the couple of hours it would take me to produce the same documents manually.
  • I love the 'queueing' feature which means I can save evergreen content to queues and have them reposted according to my desired schedule. One of the key benefits to this is that if I am unable to schedule content for whatever reason I am reassured that content will still be posted via queues.
  • The integration with tools such as Feedly and Canva is outstanding as it means I have a single dashboard from which to manage most of my day to day activities.
  • I struggle to find anything to criticise about this tool. The staff are very accessible and any problems I experience are usually resolved quickly via chat. This includes any 'cons' whereby I have made a couple of suggestions for feature requests and these have actually been developed and implemented.
For a business running multiple social platforms, or for a small to medium sized agency I find eClincher brilliant. I do sometimes find its speed a little slow so I can imagine this could be annoying if you were a very large organisation.

If you want to be able to have complete visibility to all your social activity/that of your clients including scheduling, posting, queueing evergreen content, responding to engaged fans, produce attractive reports, follow key words etc etc it's great!

My team used eClincher to post on social media platforms as well as to gather and reply to messages and comments in social media and reviews.
  • We use eClincher to schedule posts and reply to messages on various social platforms.
  • The platform compiles all of the social outlets so that we can see and reply to all outlets in the same dashboard.
  • The reporting is wonderful! Easy to generate and easy for clients to read.
  • There are so many outlets to post your message, the more on one platform the better. There are a couple of things that we've requested from eClincher and they've always been able to deliver.
  • Some of the Instagram functionality is clunky but it's because Instagram doesn't work well with third-party providers. However, the eClincher team is constantly working on improving the platform and they release upgrades often.
The team at eClincher is SO receptive to support questions and suggestions on how to improve the platform. Their customer service team is amazing! The chat function is a life-saver and anytime we've asked a question or requested information or enhanced functionality, they are prompt to reply with helpful information and functionality upgrade status.

This platform is the best we've used (and we've used a few). The fact that they listen to our requests and work to make them happen lets me know that they are committed to their customers. We couldn't be happier with the platform
