Sendible is a social media marketing platform that allows users to engage with their audience and track results across multiple social media channels at any time.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/En/cE/7T3TQX8HTEEW.PNGGood Social Media Management Solution for Small AgenciesI used Sendible with a small marketing team to schedule social media content for my agency and for my clients.

Even if individuals don't specifically tag you in Twitter posts, you can know they're talking about the company, allowing you to bring in new users. When responding to a post in the inbox, the visual check mark on the right hand side is a helpful reminder that you've responded to a tweet. When juggling multiple accounts as I do, it is especially useful. Because we work with businesses that provide consumer services, integrating Yelp monitoring is also important. By getting emails from Yelp in our inbox as they come in on the website, we're able to better address problems as they arise, or provide more real time positive feedback through our social media channels.,This service is probably not the best for really large or fast-paced accounts. While it seems that some posts come in through Sendible immediately, others seem to take several hours. For the non-profits and smaller businesses we work for, this is not a problem, but it could be for larger businesses. When you try to click on individual accounts to get more detailed profile information, the profile rarely loads. This information could be useful to get a sense of how many followers an individual has, and to see other content they've posted. If you're working with individuals in multiple time zones, there are some functionality problems. You only have one default time zone, so if you're generally based in PST but end up in EST, you'll have to automatically adjust the time stamp to 3 hours earlier in order for the post to go out immediately.,The benefits have been huge in terms of decreasing time spent on brand monitoring. What could have taken 20-30 hours without Sendible now takes just an hour or two per week to be able to manage all of the non-tagged social media interactions. This is a huge time savings (and cost savings) for my employer. There are also many situations where we've able to respond more quickly than we could otherwise to reviews on Yelp. For instance, we work with an auto glass company out of Vancouver, BC. Because of the emails Sendible sends, we're able to highlight these positive reviews in our Facebook and Twitter accounts, generating higher levels of customer interactions. Thanking people for RTs can be a really labor intensive task. Given that all of the RTs are located in one stream, we can easily group together multiple people for one account at the same time, saving us time per tweet.,7,8Great SolutionSendible allows us to scale up drastically so that a small social media team can support a major brand's social media strategy across various platforms.

Sendible Review: "Good Social Media Management Solution for Small Agencies"

I used Sendible with a small marketing team to schedule social media content for my agency and for my clients. We had a number of needs: reliable social media scheduling, ability to give access to multiple users, the ability to assign and approve posts, and the ability to create reports for our clients.
  • Reliable social media scheduling
  • Multiple user access
  • Approve posts before publishing
  • Like many social media management tools, it gets pricey as you add users
  • Reporting isn't quite as robust as I would like
Great for small agency teams with basic assignment and approval workflows. For small businesses, you may not need all of the features that Sendible offers and you may consider a more basic (read: less expensive) tool. Larger agencies will likely need more robust features for reporting. The sweet spot, to me, seems to be the small to mid-sized agency.

I think Sendible can be tailored easily. Also you can make really effective changes on the fly to some services, a fast change like that is valuable.

I am sceptical about the benefits of social media management platforms in general, believing they enable bad practice (scheduling posts in advance because it makes your life easier, rather than using social media as a live, responsive and engaging comms tool / blasting out identical content to platforms which have quite different purposes and audiences). That said, some are better than others. I would guess people are attracted to Sendible as it's a lower price point for some businesses than alternatives. It is clunky, slow to load and a very obvious 'me too' product, where you don't feel there's a vision or focus on driving customer benefits. The social media scanning tool was incredibly poor and brought back very unreliable results. The connection to LinkedIn didn't work for company pages or showcase pages. Really, really, if you're looking at this, go the whole hog and invest in marketing automation which does all this and much, much more.

Though the solution works well for some aspects of our business, I would be careful to recommend it to another colleague. The most important questions would be: how many different accounts are you trying to manage? how real-time and high volume is the social media response on these accounts? do you have any outside brand monitoring needs (including through Yelp?) If an individual only has 1-2 accounts or has really high volume needs, I couldn't suggest Sendible.

I recommend it daily as an option that has been around long enough to understand the space and know it can be trusted, but nimble enough to keep up with the changing trends.

Review: "Sendible, good for small businesses with small teams."

We brought in Sendible during a time that we had no other social media engagement going on. This was prior to me coming on with the company and there wasn't anyone who felt comfortable posting to the various social media forums. This helped the team feel confident that they were still keeping the online presence going without having to hire someone independently for the position. As social media has grown over the past few years, the company knew that they would have to take a much more proactive approach to online and social media branding.
  • Scheduling ads to run at specific high traffic times during the day.
  • Scheduling postings for events at particular times.
  • Categorizing all of our postings into one forum that can easily be checked and utilized as well as marking if we have responded to the inquiry/post.
  • Tracking PR hits that have come through... it often times sends me articles that are years old... or articles that have nothing to do with the Resort at all.
  • I believe the user interface could be more user friendly.
  • Posting can be confusing for new people to Sendible, but not too bad.
If you are looking to this product to gather press release hits, look somewhere else. If you want a simple one stop shop to accessing your social media over various forums, Sendible is great. Especially for a business I work for (large corporation with resort, spa, golf, restaurants); it can be crazy having to access so many different places to respond. One stop is the way to go.
