Will save you hours
Our team uses multiple social media platforms and each member of our team has both their business and personal profile for each of the platforms. I was looking for a solution that would effectively manage all of them from one spot without having to sign in and out of each. Hootsuite has saved countless hours a week and enables me to do all of our social media postings in one easy session.
Effectively manages multiple social media platforms without requiring frequent logins. Provides great analytics on posts Cheap Great customer support if you have any issues
Integration with Facebook post boosts not perfect. Platform can still have a few glitches when posting URLs as status updates
Hootsuite is local and I was eager to support something in my city. I have not explored other options as we are satisfied with the performance of the product.
Social media updates across multiple platforms
Simply put, HootSuite has saved us a large amount of time on daily/weekly updates. Has also freed up time at busy hours by allowing scheduled social media posts.
Hard to determine precisely. For the cost of our time saved, we know that the annual HootSuite costs are worth paying. The bulk of our business, however, is referral based and Hootsuite has not changed this in any significant way.
Give it a try to determine if it will save you time. This program has saved us a lot of time and money but it won't be useful for everyone. I have no explored some of the more advanced features of the software but for simple social media management, this is a fantastic everyday tool.
