For Jess Nelson at WAY Social finding a platform that could handle everything from collating UGC to streamlining client approvals and offering in-depth reporting proved a challenge, until she discovered Sked.

To grow her agency, Tiff Ng from The Social Story was on the hunt for a scheduling platform that could guarantee posts go out on time, every time. She was also looking to improve the workflow and interconnectivity of her remote team, while also providing the latest functionality to keep her on top of all things social. And that’s exactly what she found with Sked Social.
“Sked has provided everything we need to run our client’s social media channels, from the insights to the reporting to the inbox,” Tiff says.
Tiff highlighted two of her favorite features; the centralized dashboard that makes analytics a breeze, and the post scheduler for multi-platform posting.
The dashboard visually relays reporting data in an easy-to-digest format. This allows The Social Story to share analytics directly with their client via a link, or collate it in a client-facing presentation.
The post scheduler tool streamlines workflow by enabling multi-platform posting with customized captions, aligning with Tiff’s “strategies of segmenting audiences and tailoring copy for different platforms.”
To make it easier for the team to work together on producing quality content, and reduce the friction around client content approvals, Tiff put Sked’s Teamwork and Approvals feature into good use.
Teamwork helped to keep the whole team on the same page and in the loop on content changes. While Sked’s friction-free approvals makes it simple and convenient for clients to review content, request changes or approve posts in just a few clicks.
With Sked streamlining The Social Story’s client approval workflows, the team now has added capacity and more time to review and refine their client’s social media strategies.
Tiff also credits Sked’s Inbox with streamlining her team’s community management processes. With a centralized inbox for managing cross-platform conversations, The Social Story has been able to eliminate the pain of handling responses manually from multiple phones, whilst keeping the conversation alive and building engaged communities for clients on social media.
