We use Gremln companywide to manage our business' social media postings and updates. Everyone from interns to contractors are trained to use Gremln for social media management. We are able to schedule in advance (up to six months) messaging that meets our strategic marketing and branding plans and better manage our time.
  • We are able to use multiple social media platforms to post messaging on all platforms
  • It is very user friendly.
  • You can schedule up to year in advance.
  • The dashboard could be resigned to be visually appealing by creating a better use of white space.
  • Make the scheduling post tab more prominent.
  • Rather than have the columns vertical, my preference it would be to horizontal stacked.
I think that Grmln works best for small businesses that are not in position to hire a brand management company or specialist. They can still feel in touch with the purpose because they are still personally involved in the messaging. It best suited for businesses that have less than 7 social media platforms for their company.

I have used Gremln for multiple companies' social media plans. For some organizations, such as conventions or smaller companies, it has been used by one person to manage multiple media sources. I personally have recommended it for company-wide use (though I'm not sure my suggestion was implemented). Because Gremln allows one or more persons to easily access, view, and manage many social media sites, it's convenient. It's also pretty easy to use, and I think the layout and tools are much more eye-pleasing and simpler to learn to use than other programs.
  • Easy to learn to use.
  • Excellent at managing multiple media sources/sites.
  • Inexpensive for what it provides.
  • Some of the tools/applications don't work, as it's still a relatively new service.
  • Sometimes contacting support can be frustrating (IE support won't actually explain what is wrong, but just tell you it's not their problem).
I feel that Gremln is a perfect tool for someone looking to manage several (many) social media sites in one application. It's easy to set up and learn to use, and for what Gremln provides it's inexpensive. Can easily be managed by one person.

  • Recurring tweets.

  • Posting to multiple accounts.
  • Editing tweets.

  • Recurring tweets every hour instead of every day.
Are you looking for basic social media management? Do you have several social media accounts that you manage? Are you looking to save time while managing your social media? Gremln helps to make managing social media easier and more efficient. The pro version has great value and I would recommend it for someone on a tight social media marketing budget.

Gremln is a good system for a publishing oriented small business. The listening and analytics are not enterprise ready yet and the UI leaves something to be desired.
