SMhack overview

What is SMhack?

SMhack is a social media marketing solution for small businesses and digital marketing agencies which offers tools for cross-channel posting, task management, activity and engagement monitoring, and performance analysis. Multiple Facebook profiles, fan pages, and Twitter handles can be integrated into the ‘Social Inbox’, allowing users to manage multiple social streams in a single view.

Users can compose posts in SMhack, including attaching images and shortening URLs, and them across multiple accounts at the same time. Posts can be published immediately, or scheduled for a later time and date. Scheduled posts appear on the built-in publishing calendar to give users an overview of content dispersion. Comments and replies to posts are displayed in SMhack as conversation threads, rather than appearing as separate notifications. Replies and comments can also be posted directly from the dashboard. SMhack also comes with a Slack integration, where social media conversations are delivered directly into a Slack channel, and users can respond directly to messages from within Slack

SMhack includes social metric, insights, and reports, allowing users to analyze their marketing efforts, through Facebook pageviews, reach, page likes, post likes, comments, and shares, and Twitter mentions, retweets, replies, and likes. Team reports can also be generated, including details of the number of posts published, tickets created, tickets closed, and individual member contributions.

Easy and Affordable Social Media Manager with Powerful Analytic Features

Review Source: Capterra

I found SMHack while going through social media marketing apps here, the website seems interesting so I signed up for a trial. I connected a facebook page, Twitter profile, Instagram account, and Google analytics account. However, SM hack also supports Linkedin allows up to 25 profiles. The Dashboard is simple with self-explanatory tabs such as Tasks, Publish, Engage, Analyze, Competition, and Monitor. One of the features I love about SM Hack is the competition tab, SM Hack lets you Benchmark your Facebook page and twitter account against your competition. Which is great because I no longer have to go to my facebook page to input competitors, I can do that right from SM Hack. Another feature I love is the Engage tab which shows twitter DM and mentions I can reply to, and get a conversation going. My favorite tab is the Analyze tab which presents several data from my profiles such as: Post engagement, Video performance, Fans demographics (gender, city locale, age groups etc.) Post impressions, Post reports, page fan, fan geo-distribution and fan growth on Facebook. On Twitter, data presented are: Follower growth, Twitter engagement reports, tweet trend report, tweet report by media, most engaged hashtags, and top engaged tweets. On Instagram, I get: Top posts by engagement rate, hashtag engagement, hashtag engagement by media, media interactions, comment engagement, like engagement, Media summary, and interaction summary Google analytics gives the following data on my connected social media profiles: Page views, sessions, bounce rate, Average session duration, page views/session and users. Compared to most SM Managers I've tried SMHack gives the most comprehensive reports. Swift Social can be used in place of SMHack for most features but No other SM manager gives comprehensive analytics reports like SMHack.

Pros
The analytics feature is the best in the market, in terms of social media management

Cons
I couldn't add a task in the task tab. there was no option of adding one, I think it was because I didn't add a client, but I would like it to be clearer next time.

Poor - useless

Pros
Nothing - doesn't connect to Facebook - therefore, useless.

Cons
Would love to properly review this. However - it refuses to connect to Facebook profiles or pages - rendering it a non starter. No response from 'support.'

Pricing model is perfect for any growing agency, simple and scalable

Pros
The pricing model works perfectly for us; we are a small but rapidly growing agency. SMHack has scalable payment options based on profiles added and not the number of users. What this actually means is we can give our clients (restricted) access to their own social media profiles, and they get a good picture of what is going on, highlight any posts that they are not happy / suggest new posts or quickly view engagement across all social media profiles, this is good for client relations, keeping them onside at all times. The Library feature; this is a great time saver in conjunction with The queue. You can quickly re-market regular posts at the click of a button or schedule in for weeks/months into the future. The simplicity of the website, very clean and intuitive to use. The tasks feature allows you to set up roles to users, so you can have a junior member of the team creating a schedule and sending it over to a more experienced member of the team to check over and publish.

Cons
No cons, I have been using SMHack for five months now and relatively smooth. The only issue I would say is when setting up a new profile we initially had a few problems with the LinkedIn integration. However the technical support and customer services was excellent, the highlighted issue was rectified very quickly, and CS followed up a few days later to make sure everything was still working as it should have been.

Everything we need in an easy to use platform.

Review Source: Capterra

We are able to manage social media campaigns for multiple clients. Because of our narrow niche, there are really only two things we care about: scheduling posts and monitoring for any messages. There are plenty of social media management tools available that do this but often times costs thousands of dollars for the number of clients that we need to manager. SM Hack provides everything that we need at a price we can afford. And their software works, which is more than we can say for other social management tools we have tried.

Pros
The single most important feature to our agency is the ability to monitor all communication. SM Hack consolidates messages from across different social profiles and platforms. This ensures we don't miss any vital communication.

Cons
There are a few minor usability features that are missing. But what they do have works, which is most important to us.
