Yatter

The only way to manage social media collaborations

Yatter is an app that takes a community based approach to scheduling social media. Users can schedule interaction, share media and chat with one other.

This helps you save time managing social media.

Yatter is free for charities and good causes. To tie in with our launch on Product Hunt we're offering lifetime access to the platform for $79.99.

Hey PH, Richard from Yatter. I'm really proud to bring Yatter to the Product Hunt community. We have been building a friendly group of Beta users here in Scotland and this is the first time we have really welcomed the wider tech community onto the platform. It’s still early days for us and we hope to be able to provide more features as we grow. We expect to extend to other platforms and also improve our integrations with Facebook and LinkedIn. We are fully functional on Twitter. If you have any feedback the makers would love to hear it. Thanks for all the support and we hope you enjoy the collaborative scheduling experience.

@richard_norman Product seems promising.Tried it today Few thoughts if you do B2B : Target companies that are actively hiring for social media managers since these are the ones who will be spending money on this function and are more likely to buy a software to aid their process. Similarly you could also focus on startups that have recently raised funds (they would be willing to spend money on it to increase their digital presence )

I'm an early adopter, a vociferous social media user and someone who needs to keep organised. I also have a lot of friends/partners I like to support.

Yatter helps me do all of these things, and more.

Pros:

Excellent tool. Scheduling posts, scheduling activity, curating content and supporting partners - it's got all you need.

Cons:

The UI is OK, but sometimes I find myself getting lost. That said, I'm an early adopter - and I have upmost confidence in the Yatter team!

Thanks for taking the time to come and try the product Alan. It's early days for us and any feedback is highly valued.

I have been using Yatter since July 2017 - I was one of the early adopters. I have found the training given by Richard and Colin to be excellent and the platform itself meets my needs. I have forged relationships with others that I would otherwise not have met and we comment and retweet each other's work. I also run a twitter hour. The backbone of this hour is shoutouts to certain accounts, thanks and highlighting accounts. Yatter allows me to schedule this in advance so that during the hour I can concentrate on retweeting the messages from the users, I can facilitate conversation and I can be seen. I used to be a Hootsuite fan, but since I have found Yatter, I have dumped HS. Try it out for yourself!

Pros:

Collaborative scheduling. Know what others are saying socially before it is published. Never miss content

Cons:

Unable to batch load, but the reason for this is explained as keeping the social in Social Media

Well done guys! I'm wondering, what's the problem that the scheduled likes/retweets/etc is solving? I don't see those actions as being as time sensitive as publishing content - but interested on your take!

@grantmac_ we find that small businesses especially struggle to maintain an active feed. For them it's just the activity of reminding their regular customers that they still exist. That doesn't have to be something about them. Curation is often a good solution. It's different from a content creator's perspective. Scheduling only really works for something that requires a build up and is in the future. Social media should be spontaneous. Yatter can be there to help fill in the gaps when you can't be.

@grantmac_ 1. It can be very time sensitive if you want your Retweet to be seen when the Tweet has just been posted. That means more eyes are likely to see your Retweet. On Twitter you grow largely through people discovering you via your engagements with Tweets, so the earlier the better. Also, there are a number of ways people can be notified that someone has Retweeted something, so Retweeting at a specific time can maximize your opportunities for people to discover such a notification. 2. It's super handy to not have to stop what you are doing to see what people have just Tweeted and engage with it promptly. It's much more efficient to do a lot of your Retweets in one visit (to Yatter), rather than having to manually do it periodically. 3. It could also be super helpful if you develop partnerships with other Yatter users, like if you are cross-promoting content. You can ensure that you've engaged with each other's content pronto. This could be super handy if you're promoting something of mutual benefit.
Hey makers! What has been the most difficult part of building this app?

@jacqvon without question building for a community. Designing software for a single user is one thing but designing something that has to browse and offer users a choice is another level. Its one of the hidden lessons of software development. I am absolutely sure we still don't have it right. I don't think we will ever have it perfect.

@jacqvon @richard_norman I have to say, as an early adopter of this platform, that when I have gone back to ask for a change here and there, the developers have been very responsive and either enacted that change, or explained to me (in non-technical terms) why that change could not be put in place. I am delighted with the platform and the service I receive.
