Without Sked... I couldn't do my jobs!

I literally could not do my jobs without Sked. I run multiple nonprofit social media accounts and the ability to have them all under one roof is a game changer. I love the link in bio feature, as well. It helps me ensure I never forget to add a link while posting. Thank you for creating an easy to use interface! I demoed many other softwares similar to Sked before pulling the trigger. Sked is by far the superior software for scheduling.

Pros

I absolutely LOVE Sked. I was say my two favorite features of the software would be the ability to create and schedule content/post for multiple accounts on various platforms and the customer service. You won't find another company that is as helpful and communicative as Sked.

Cons

I do wish there was the ability to edit specifically to each social platform while creating a post for multiple sites. For example, when creating verbiage for IG, you would use "click the link in our bio" vs. FB which might read "click the link below". It was be nice to be able to create the post for both with the option to isolate each platform to input different needs. But by no means is this a deal breaker!

Reasons for Switching to Sked Social

I will say the cost of Sked (for my needs) was more than the other brands I was shopping at the time but has quickly become absolutely worth it. I love Sked's ability to add multiple social accounts and manage them all from one control center. The link in bio and first comment features are extremely helpful, as well!

I think sked could be so much more popular if it would be more affordable and made easier to use. I like the ability to schedule posts and the analytics are useful.
The thing about sked is that it can do a lot and do it well but on the other side feels a whole lot all over the place with all the capabilities. Also, I think you should price it according to the follower base or engagement. I have 1050 followers at the time and it is really really painful to have to pay so much to get functionality that should be part of the app. I would like to pay a bit more when I have reached 5k followers and a bit more when I have 10k, 50k and 100k. But now it is feels very very unfair.

Pros

I love the calendar, I love that I can make all sort of posts for instagram like stories and reels and then place automate the posts.
I also like that you can crop photos from within the post and that you get your hashtags with a click.

Cons

First of all, sorry for this chaotic post, I write this really from my heart so I will just pour it all over here because I want to share my frustrations

The software is still messy and and it has many things that could be more simple, like the queue is still a mystery for me.

I still don't get how to set it up and because you have sections that are only open when you upgrade your plan makes it even more confusing.

I hate when you have a section between the things I used that is blocked to show off all the things I CAN'T DO when I can't afford it. The real problem is that I might afford it but it'd be better if I could use it for free when I'm a small company and pay more when I scale.

The pricing on the upgrades are ridiculous for a small business like me.

There are things that you guys are selling that would make the user quality of life better but they have a big price tag. I'm talking about the use of the media that you could upload for example. Maybe it is possible now but you guys change so many things so fast that I constantly stop using the software because I don't understand it.

Why do you let users add more than 3 accounts to then put it the extra gmb account behind a paywall?
I understand that you have to promote the services but I feel a bit abused as a user when I'm able to use something and then it gets blocked and I have to pay for it.

I mostly work in the dutch language and it would be really nice if the hashtag suggestions would be in dutch

Those times it worked, SKED was wonderful, but the serious problems found with this app completely erase any merit. Besides, no one should ever do business with a company unethical enough to cancel a customer's account simply for complaining about the product.

Pros

The overall functions provide great flexibility other programs don't for the value. At the beginning, when one is trying to decide about SKED, the help from the staff was wonderful.

Cons

One cannot trust Sked at all to schedule your Instagram posts at the time assigned. Too many of my posts got posted 30-35 minutes late. As if this wasn't bad enough, the staff is extremely sensitive to customer complaints. They came up with all types of outrageous and implausible excuses blaming me for those delays. They would never accept responsibility for being late with the posts. The last time I complained, they asserted my image contained too much metadata. When I replied by stating that whomever came up with that analysis was simply lying because my image was scanned and contained zero metadata, they didn't hesitate to cancel my account immediately. They did not even give me enough time to copy my favorite hashtags. HOW UNETHICAL IS THAT?

PLEASE, don't be fool by their initial friendly demeanor. If you run into a problem and have to complain, the staff will simply try to place the blame on you.

Sked Social Is The Reason I'm Growing My Business

I'm a freelance copywriter and run my own copywriting business. Most of my target audience are on Instagram, so I wanted to break the mold there and become a figure of authority within the copywriting industry. Before Sked Social, I was posting from my phone without doing it in advance. It was absolutely exhausting. I would post for the sake of posting because I felt pressured to just get it published. As a result, the quality of my content suffered, and so did my business.

When I realised that you could schedule posts in advance, my whole life changed. I was able to spend a day creating content, writing captions, and adding hashtags, and the rest of the week wasn't shadowed by this gloomy social media demand.

I also learned to use the analytics. It'd be good if the SkedSocial team could provide lessons every now and again about data interpretation, but it's still a great feature.

I honestly owe my business growth to Sked Social, because now that my content is better quality, I'm gaining far more leads, more interest, and, as a result, more clients.
There's no way I could be as consistent as I am without Sked Social, so I do massively recommend it to anyone looking for a scheduler.

Pros

The analytics SkedSocial offers are fantastic. With so much data, you can filter it down to just analytics revolving around a single post. Similarly, you can do the same for 6 months of analytics.
There's so much scope for growth when you're able to truly see what's working and what isn't. The data the social platform provides is a good start, but it's hard to create a narrative out of it. With Sked Social, you can spot patterns and trends and understand why they're there.

Cons

There are 2 things about SkedSocial that I feel could be better. Don't get me wrong, I think that, as a whole, it's a great program, and I highly recommend it to my clients. But there is room for improvement.

First, you can only schedule reels for manual posting. I'm sure this is the same with most schedulers, but it'd be great if they could crack that case.

Secondly, although it's far better now, SkedSocial went through a phase of not posting my posts at all. It happened about 3-4 times where I scheduled a post and it didn't get published until 3 hours later. I'd have to reach out to the team and ask what was going on. That said, that has got a lot better and it hasn't happened for a long time.

I initially came to Sked back when it was focused on Instagram scheduling. The ability to schedule posts on Instagram was liberating and gave our team their weekends back. It's been great to see Sked grow to include a multitude of other platforms but retain their reasonable price structure.

Pros

It is so easy to schedule posts across multiple platforms in bulk format. That saves our team hours upon hours a month.

Cons

Sometimes it can be difficult to attach Instagram accounts because of the security measures that are in place on the Instagram platform. If a client has two-step authentication on, the process becomes prolonged and we have to get the client involved more than we would like.
