Acquistion Announcement

After a long hard decision, Simple Social has been acquired by The Boutell Designs Group. We will be migrating all the Simple Social assets to Freelance Workspace. Simple Social as a company will be closed, and instead will become a product under The Boutell Designs Group and Freelance Workspace. This transition should be almost completely seemless to clients and anyone that is visiting our site. As we move in this new direction it is our plan to help our clients and continue to grow there business!

This site will be closed by or before Q4 2018.

May 2018 - Update :: All links are now pointed to our new ownership company. If you have worked with us in the past, please refrain from using our old email links as everything has switched to the new company. We are also starting the migration of our portal to Freelance Workspace. There is no need to re-register for an account and the transition should be fairly seemless to all our clients. There will be a planned outage soon as we finalize the migration and bring up the new portal system under Freelance Wrokspace but more details to come!
