is a new upstart that’s trying to end the dominance of these well-funded goliaths. It has your regular suite of features such as scheduling posts, link shortening, analytics, and RSS integration but it operates on an ethos that social posts need to be repeated for maximum reach.

 
Sameer Khan, co-founder of SocialChamp, says the tool is inspired by former Apple employee Guy Kawasaki’s book, The Art of Social Media.
 
Brands can, for example, use the app to schedule the same tweet with a pre-determined time difference. will either delete the previous tweet or retweet it, and save all previous tweet analytics such as clicks, reach, and engagement.
 
But what about Facebook? Won’t its algorithm penalize pages that share the same piece of content repeatedly? Sameer claims that they’ve come up with a workaround, whereby the previous share is hidden from the timeline.
 
This tactic could come under fire if Facebook tweaks its algorithm further to prevent post repeats.

But Sameer’s very confident. He explains the team took the best features of existing apps such as Buffer and Hootsuite and added a few of their own to firm up the product. Other than simply repeating posts, the tool also provides content suggestions, automates RSS feed posts, and allows bulk content uploads.
 
The startup, which is currently bootstrapped, has a freemium model with paid plans starting at $10 per month. It claims over 1,500 active users with an average of almost 200% month-on-month growth since launch.
