We’re very pleased to announce that Stacker hits a big milestone today after 7 months in the oven --- version 1.0 Beta
What does Stacker do?
Stacker makes it super easy for you to manage all your Social Media accounts in One place.
What can I do with Stacker?
- Publish with ease - Simply add all the content you want to share into Stacker’s Outbox Queue and we’ll post each one out at the best times throughout the day, so that your fans and followers see your updates more often.
- Reply with ease - "Social Media" like "Love", is a 2 way street. Simply posting content to your accounts won’t cut it. You need to engage with your fans regularly to build a loyal fanbase. When your fans and followers @mention, @reply, comment or post to any of your Social Media accounts, Stacker pulls their messages into a single Universal Inbox, making it quick and easy for you to Reply, Like and Favorite their messages.
- Reports that give you the Real picture - Stacker gives you detailed insights on your fanbase and the performance of your Social Media campaigns. Everything from the number of Likes/Favorites that each post receives to the Cities and Countries that visits come from is tracked and presented in easy-to-read reports.
Why did we build it?
Over the years, we’ve had to manage multiple Social Media accounts for our own brands. As a small team we couldn’t afford to have someone working full-time in this role, so as the founder, I decided to take on the task myself. I soon realized that this sounded much easier than it actually was:
- Posting out content and replying to incoming messages meant that I had to log in and out of multiple accounts, multiple times a day. Switching between accounts on my desktop was tedious, but doing the same thing on my iPhone was a nightmare!
- Since the majority of our customers are in a different timezone than we are, Every post I scheduled inside Facebook needed to be offset by a few hours. I found another tool that could do this but the UI was terrible and access on mobile was not an option
- I was posting links in my Tweets and Facebook status updates but I had no idea “if” or “how many” users were actually clicking them
These and other complexities meant that the task simply became too tedious and too time consuming and I eventually gave up on our Social Media push.
When I looked at the existing apps available, I found a few options that did bits and pieces of what I needed but not a single one that was easy-to-use, worked reliably and did everything I needed in One place.
This is how the idea for Stacker was born!
