Major Updates to VenueSeen Give Businesses Ability to Manage Instagram From Dashboard

VenueSeen Launches Instagram Authentication, Reach Analytics and More

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2012) -  VenueSeen -- a social media management/monitoring dashboard that pulls in location-specific photos, comments, tips and reviews from Instagram, Foursquare, and Foodspotting -- is making it even easier for businesses and brands to connect and engage with their online fans and followers. Today, VenueSeen is adding new features, including the ability to manage Instagram accounts -- likes, comments and follows -- directly from the VenueSeen dashboard.

"Since launching in April, we've listened to how our customers wanted to use VenueSeen. From multi-location, national franchises to single-store establishments, we heard that people needed the ability to manage and interact on Instagram from the main dashboard," explained VenueSeen's Brian Zuercher. "Now, we've made it even easier for businesses, brands and their agencies to connect with their customers by simply syncing their location's Instagram account with VenueSeen. Manage, like, comment and follow Instagram followers without ever leaving your dashboard."

VenueSeen's New Features:

  •  Instagram Account Syncing - VenueSeen now has Instagram Authentication built into its platform. Brands and businesses can sync their Instagram account with VenueSeen giving them the ability to like, comment and follow directly from the web dashboard. It's now simple to build a following and engage with customers on Instagram. 
  • Leaderboard - Businesses can know who their most passionate customers are with VenueSeen's leaderboard. Whether it's a single location business or a business with hundreds of locations, VenueSeen lets businesses see who has taken the most photos, reached the most people with their photos or posted the most recent photos.
  • Reach Analytics - For businesses with multiple locations (or agencies managing multiple locations), they can now sort and see which location has the most reach (i.e. the # of followers each customer had when they took the photo). Additionally, VenueSeen's reach analytics pulls information to let businesses see the total number of photos posted to their location, the most recent photos and their growth in reach.
  • Hashtag Tracking - VenueSeen's powerful platform can now identify and pull out the most commonly used hashtags from photos tagged at a businesses' location. This lets the business see how people are talking about them, and what people are saying. Also, for brands running contests using hashtags, VenueSeen's tracking capability makes it easy for them to track the hashtag on photos that have been geo-tagged in their location.

"In addition to Instagram Authentication, we've also added a leaderboard, reach analytics and hashtag tracking," explained Zuercher. "Our goal is to give businesses the tools they need to monitor, connect and engage with their loyal online fans."
