Being at the starting point of their business, the team from Hourly was incredibly grateful for a tool that could offer great social media insights into their industry.

Wanting to grow their business correctly, they knew that they needed to add some great value to the social platforms.

More than that, by analyzing the industry, they realized that being active on social was a must.

Without this information, they couldn’t have had the results they wanted, which would have meant more challenging work.

This means a lot of time spent doing research and manual work. Using a specific tool helped them save time and grow faster than other companies in the industry.

The competitive advantages with Socialinsider

  • All-in-one platform for analytics and reports
  • A powerful benchmarking feature
  • The easiest social media analytics platform to use

Hourly chose Socialinsider as they found in this tool exactly what they needed. Some nice visuals are not enough when it comes to a tool like this one. Being easy to use and learn was a key element for their choice.

“Socialinsider had the best reports and was the easiest to use. We looked at some all-in-one social media platforms but found they were only strong in one or two areas, and for the most part, research and benchmarking were not one of them.”

Moreover, Socialinsider provides the best social media reports for them, and this makes their work easier and more valuable at the same time.

They use our tool on a weekly basis to do social media competitors research and benchmarking. This way, they discover new things about their competitors while still growing their business in a very healthy way.
