Social iQ Networks Releases First Self-Service Portal Addressing Social Account Sprawl

New Self-Service Portal Allows Companies and Agencies to Find, Inventory, and Report on Brand-Run Social Accounts

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) -  Social iQ Networks, Inc., the pioneer in social infrastructure governance for the enterprise, today announced availability of its new credit card driven portal- Social AccountFinder. The new portal allows agencies, consultants, and brands to quickly and affordably find company and brand run accounts.

As the number and type of social media accounts continues to grow, it can be hard for organizations to know where to start in understanding their social accounts and infrastructure. Simply getting visibility into the number and types of social accounts a company and brand has can be a huge enabler for tackling the opportunities, challenges, and risks to the organization.

Social iQ Networks launched its SaaS based Enterprise Suite earlier this year to provide a complete solution for discovering, auditing, tracking, trending, and protecting all the social accounts associated with a given company, brand or brands. The addition of Social AccountFinder offers a lightweight way for organizations to get a preview of the total number of accounts associated with their brand or brands. The service helps answer several common questions including: how many accounts are associated with the company/brand, what type of accounts are they, and even what does the account footprint of my competitors look like.

Social AccountFinder can be accessed and paid for online with a credit card and provides two main packages of functionality.

  • Snapshot - shows the number of accounts and account types associated with the company or brand on each social network and allows for limited reporting
  • Panorama -  adds filtering, analysis, and categorization of the actual accounts discovered along with the ability to run additional competitive and category comparison reports

Pricing:
The Snapshot service is $99 and the Panorama service is $499. AccountFinder packages can be seamlessly upgraded at any time to the Enterprise Suite to add the ability to audit, run in-depth reports, track, and protect accounts.

  • "As a social media agency, we are always working to measure the total social footprint of our brand clients," said Jason Stein, Founder & President, Laundry Service. "The Social AccountFinder service gives us a quick and cost-efficient way to assess the scope of a brand's social accounts and overall social footprint. We are able to use that snapshot to evaluate and propose taking next steps in the analysis and auditing of our client's social accounts with the Social iQ Networks Enterprise Suite. Social management is all about understanding, connecting, and protecting the accounts of a brand, and that all starts with finding what accounts they actually have."
  • "Often times our customers and partners need a fast view of the accounts for a brand in order to assess the scope of social sprawl they may be dealing with," said Devin Redmond, Co-founder and CEO, Social iQ Networks. "This often comes as a precursor to more in-depth auditing and assessment. Social AccountFinder gives an easy way to understand that scope of sprawl while paving the way to justify resource and budget for more in-depth auditing, policy creation, and policy enforcement. We are excited to be a pioneer in providing agencies, consulting firms, and customers an easily accessed and created view into the infrastructure of accounts their brands have."
