Sometimes you either don't have the time, the tools or the knowledge to create good looking and convincing reports for on-boarding clients. There might also be a situation where your Virtual Assistant has nothing to do and you would want him to spend his time in a productive matter :unsure:

Fast & Dirty reports in 4 easy steps:

1. Go to http://deep.social/ and sign-up a free account

2. Go to Audience Data (https://deep.social/data) and download the PDF example report

3. Use http://www.pdfdu.com/link-delete.aspx to remove all the links in the PDF

4. Use https://www.pdfescape.com/ to remove the branding (with white rectangles) and add your own branding if you wish.

I know this is not the most clean way, but recently people asked me whats the path of least resistance and this is pretty much it if you don't have any upfront knowledge or your own tools for those things. Over the time everyone develops their own scraping and report tools, so this is more like entry level :)

If you know a better way for entry level or an alternative way, post below so I can update the post. :cool:

Questions are also always welcome.

Been doing this but with Illustrator and Acrobat Pro to remove stuff.. not the free reports though, can't be bothered with making free accounts, I just pay, since its well cheap. Nice one though, I was not the first to be removing someones banding from their pdf ;)

I have decided to change the term 'audience credibility' though since whoever searches on that term will come straight to deep social
(yes it happened and the client called me like 'whats up with that?'), and I don't want that as I sell these puppies at starting price 100 bucks apiece muahaha

@Gernozarus you know that the Audience data is referring to engagers, not the followers, only likers and commenters, and it is a projection based on past data right? I find that explaining that these are the stats of engagers not followers (and not mentioning that its an estimation/projection), and a bit of info on how its done (generalities about AI and data mining) helps them accept it more. But yeah, I use it for a different purpose, and clients are happy to see their account looking good, I suppose its a different psychology than prospective account buyer.

I never explained anything. They just accept it. Note they are not for account management but rather when I sell an account

@Gernozarus I now realize I probably misunderstood your post I was replying to, I thought you meant they where skeptical of the report, now I realize you probably mean you used the reports when the account buyers where skeptical of the accounts, and so with the reports they where not skeptical anymore. In which case what I wrote has not so much point lol

https://medium.com/@deepsocial

They have some pretty interesting data to read over on Medium.

Another great one i've been using for reports is https://hypeauditor.com/.

We have been looking for a replacement of deepsocial for a while now and recently stumbled across affable.ai .. These guys look very promising and tbh they have more features than just analysing an influencer on instagram.. super responsive on the website chat too

If you are looking for a replacement to deepsocial, I'd totally give www.affable.ai a shot

Sneaking in on-topic before @delagarde can share his wisdom :D

Sometimes its clientele related - hopefully not in this case - and switching to customers that either understand the value or have a stupid amount of money to spend does the job. @delagarde probably also does upsell to already happy clients, so trust is already established. If people see their money well spent and trust you, they are more likely to spend more on you, because they got their money "back" in the past (ROI).

Hi Ashish, if you're still curious about how I sold these for $100 a pop, the biggest thing that helped me up the price was the increased value I put upon my own time. Once you send a client a report, they will likely have questions,what does this and that mean... also the initial communication with them, the effort to sell it, my site that exists for that purpose, I see those as costs. The price I pay hypeauditor is just the smallest part of it. So basically I refuse to sell them for any less, that would be a loss for me.

Aside from that psychological aspect, I have a lot of personal contact with local clients. That makes a difference. I know lot of them are successful businessmen or professionals, they have mad cash and are happy with my services or have heard good things about me via word of mouth. If they give any resistance to prices I can make a joke about their rolex on their wrist or their late model luxury car that they post about and they laugh and shut up about that. So pretty much what Henry Cooper said:
