Pros
Inboundli is great for social media managers. The ability to curate specific content and post to social channels all in one platform makes managing social channels easy.

Cons
Pretty solid platform, just makes sure you set up your streams properly so that you only curate content that is relevant.

Priceless time saving and influence-building social media management tool

Review Source: Capterra

As an inbound marketer, I have worked for large to medium size companies, B2B and B2C, all of whom need to take social media into account. Social media can be incredibly effective yet horribly time and resource-consuming without software like Inbound.li Large companies have the budget for reputation management tools that come with digital media news monitoring but the price tag is in the tens of thousands of dollars per year. Having used these dashboards I really wanted the same efficiency and effectiveness for the small to medium businesses. Along comes inbound.li ! After using it since 2015 (almost two years now) I can say my experience has been all-around excellent . It is smart tool that makes influence-building a piece of cake at a fraction of the price. It succeeds on all the important levels, here are some of them: - awesome content-surfacing intelligence to keep a brand ahead of its competitor - incredibly easy optimizing of messages for each social network (Inbound.li does it for you) - scheduling or saving items for later - content researcher's best friend -you can save related articles to make content writing a snap - great user-centric developers - responsive post-sales personal service for your entire customer lifecycle Using inbound.li reduced my social media time from over an hour to under 10 minutes a day, and the articles it finds are better, more varied, and hyper-current. When taking on a client, if social media is involved, I wouldn't proceed without the budget to have Inbound.li in my toolkit. Kudos to Gene and the team at Inbound.li, you make it easy for marketers to look great and produce results.

Pros
-saves time, which is a challenge of social media projects -intuitive interface -presents freshest articles, indicates authority -powerful unlimited search filters that can be saved -the articles with strategic tips and recent social network updates on the blog

Cons
would like more of the old-style documentation available from the dashboard, but the support is always there to answer your questions in a timely fashion

Pros
- The people who run inboundli are extremely helpful. They make themselves available whenever we need help and are very knowledgeable about content marketing. - This is the only product we could find that schedules recurring social media posts while also integrating with Hubspot. This was important for us for tracking and analytics. - The content recommendations are really spot on and comprehensive.

Cons
- The blog feature is not exactly what we needed, as it's not very easy to customize the look and feel.

Great tool for streamlining curated content

Review Source: Capterra

We wanted to reach and engage more construction stakeholders on social media and position ourselves as an authority in the industry. Within just the first 3 months of using inboundli, we had a 132% increase in link clicks, 101% increase in other engagements (e.g. likes, retweets, comments and replies), 111% increase in new targeted followers and 215% increase in visits from social media.

Pros
- The relevance of content is really good, at least in our case (we're focused on a unique industry). You just need to provide some influencer blogs and media in your industry, some competitors, and you will see relevant curated content flowing in quite quickly. - The software is very easy to use, making curated content scheduling a breeze. The publishing tool will automatically push relevant hashtags in your posts and will guide you to optimize your posts from both a content and timing perspective. - The integration with HubSpot is also very useful to keep track of all your social posts, whether you post them from HubSpot or from Inboundli.

Cons
There are only a couple improvements that could be made, which are the reason why I put 4 stars out of 5 on the functionality assessment: - English is the only language managed for curated content. Since we have audience in multiple countries, I wish we could have more languages. - You still have to manually request access for new users, this could be self-service. So I guess if you're only using English and don't have to add new users every other morning, this is a no-brainer.

Inboundli Is the Best Choice Xcellimark Made for Social Media & Content Management

I cut 98% of my time and labor towards social media publishing, curation, blog promotion, content creation, optimization, scheduling and increasing brand awareness, just by using Inboundli. Yes, the software is truly that incredible and powerful.

Pros
I love everything! But if I had to pick one, it's the enormous amount of time saved (est. 98%) from having to curate, repurpose, promote, schedule, optimize and manage our's and all of our client's social media accounts. Time is money, and the amount of money you gain from using Inboundli far surpasses the amount of money you pay monthly. When it comes to cost, Inboundli keeps your original flat rate no matter how many fantastic upgrades or new features they add. The onboarding experience was seamless and impressive. The Inboundli team got our digital agency, and our clients up and running in less than a week. I barely had to lift a finger. They give you as much time of their time as you need for questions, concerns or more. Their customer service is one of the best I've ever experienced. You genuinely feel unique to the Inboundli employees when you're their customer. I also love how Inboundli seamlessly integrates into HubSpot. It even creates the shortened tracking links in HubSpot for you, which was a massive toll on my time spent scheduling social media posts and content for a week's or month's worth of publishing. I also love that the software will automatically pick out, optimize and schedule your social media posts for you! It will let you know what it picked out and planned for the next couple of days, and if you don't like a specific post, you just delete that one. Otherwise, it's hands-free social media and content publishing for you!

I have had a wonderful experience with Inboundli. The software is easy to use. It has powerful functionality that quickly and easily will allow me to take care of my company's social media & content marketing needs. The chrome extension feature makes it easy for me to pull in content as I find it and re-post it. Inboundli's software has made this process easy and effective. But the strength of the company is the personal support and direction I have received. Being new to content marketing Gene and his time have spent hours with me teaching best practices and training me how to improve my marketing for maximum effectiveness. I highly recommend Inboundli to anyone from the beginner to experienced marketer.

Pros
Simple straightforward functionality that works as advertised.

Cons
I wish the text editor in the blog was more robust.

In just a few minutes every day, inboundli helps me to share the best design-related content and engage my target audience. Within the very first month I saw my interactions on social media triple.

Pros
I like that inboundli is intuitive and has a clear design. I think they have the best and fastest support I ever got.

Cons
I'm using inboundli for almost a year and still discovering useful workflows. It could use more tutorials or documentation so that potential use cases are clearer to people without a marketing background.

We have been using Inbound.li for more than a year. The ability of the tool to find high quality content even for niche markets is phenomenal. Their algorithms, once trained, find the best content. Additionally, the tool enables users to capture a set of articles to be shared later in a blog. These sharable blogs expand the value of the content curation function.

Pros
Strong support - very useful scheduling tool for social media origination. Interesting search function - we would want to exploit that more.

Pros
We've used inboundli for about year and I couldn't be happier. With inboundli we're consistently delivering content to our followers that's of interest, current and of good quality. We've also been able to reduce the amount of time it takes to manage our social media presence and increase our follower count and interactions significantly.

Cons
The user interface is a bit 'engineer-ish' but functional, easy to understand and intuititive.

inboundli provides the right content for our customers every time

Review Source: Capterra

I have been using inboundli software since their early days and I am still a very happy user. In time they have implemented many more features, but the fact that they are somehow able to find the right content for our customers amazes me every time. Especially as I am not speaking of the usual suspects like forbes or huffingtonpost but also articles from small magazines I never heard of before. Somehow it seems they are able to scrape the whole internet. It is very easy to use, just select the article you want and share it. I really like the option of suggested hashtags and the fact I can use a predefined schedule list makes our live much easier. Is there anything negative to say ? Actually not much. When we started our social media strategy we tried several tools like buzzsumo, feedly and topsy. They offered more and/or different options. In the end inboundli is only one we still use every day.

This software is a huge time saver. You can keep your Social Media accounts topped up with highly relevant content that people will love. Sharing great links get's you noticed and gets you followed. It's as simple as that. The Inboundli software nudges you when you've run out of updates, it learns your interests and finds great stuff for you to share. But when it gets it wrong you can choose to ignore the publisher so refining the selection further. The team are continually improving the software, adding features and are always approachable . I can't fault them. The interface is easy to use and it's difficult to find fault anywhere. The only thing I'd change is the ability to save a link AND also publish it. Currently you can only do one or the other. I bet they make that change if they read this!

Pros
For a business standpoint, I love the idea that a business has the ability to source content from resources that are skilled in the writing world. This eliminates the possibility of throwing an employee into a position they may not be comfortable in, just because the social media content is needed and there's no one to fill the role.

Cons
I have not seen anything negative with this so far.

I have been using this for my own website, www.sapbwconsulting.com for about 6 months now, and have had excellent results. I had evaluated various content curation solutions for the past 3 years and this one has proven to be amazing at finding just the right kind of content I want to share. The deep machine learning shows up each time I use it as it gets even better at finding content that fits my criteria. Best of all, it has reduced my workload as I am now generating more leads than ever with it as it seems to supercharge my own content.
