Oktopost Features In Depth

Social Publishing

As a marketing professional, providing your audience with relevant content via your organization’s social media accounts is just one of the many duties the job entails. And if you’re managing several of these accounts, say 50 including LinkedIn and Facebook groups, manually posting custom messages to each one is going to take time. Oktopost supports the major social media sites – LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. It allows you to add company pages and personal profiles, and invite colleagues to join advocacy boards so employees can share company-approved messages, extending your brand’s overall social media reach.

Oktopost’s autoposter feature lets you schedule posts for long-term campaigns and publish saved messages across your different social networks. Posts can be scheduled to publish just once or multiple times.

Social Listening

Oktopost’s social listening feature lets you “listen” in real time to what your target audiences are saying about your brand, what makes them tick, and which calls to action resonate with them the most. It also allows you to connect with influencers, thought leaders, and potential prospects. The live monitoring stream keeps track of mentions, keywords, company pages, and even competitor activities, enabling you to engage in relevant social conversations and make your brand stand out, and reply to feedback and customer queries straight from the app.

The app also comes with a built-in content discovery and curation platform that displays well-performing content from across the web. The content curation engine allows you to share timely and relevant articles and blog posts in just a few clicks. The type of content that shows up is based on the interests and keywords you specify.

Social ROI

Oktopost’s social analytics feature shows you the direct impact of your social media activities to the company’s sales pipeline. Conversions are tracked, including which message types and social media channels are generating the most results. Leads are monitored from the first time they engage with your message until they become actual, paying customers.

Unlimited graphical reports on conversions, likes, comments, clicks, and other forms of social engagement are provided, and collected data can be segmented according to message, campaign, social network, users, and groups. Data can be exported as PDF, Excel, and CSV files.

Social Advocacy

Oktopost recognizes the power of employees as brand ambassadors and allows you to invite as many of them to join social advocacy boards. Pinned messages show up on their dashboards, and they can then choose those they’d like to push to their own networks.

To identify your organization’s top brand ambassadors and encourage a healthy dose of competition, leaderboards are available to keep track of the performance of each post on each profile. They can also help you plan incentive programs and measure how each employee contributes to your social media marketing objectives.

Agency Program

If you’re running a social media marketing agency, Oktopost lets you manage several different accounts, segment your campaigns, and organize your team’s workflows in one centralized location. The platform also allows clients to visualize how your social media efforts are impacting their revenue numbers by granting them access to a dashboard exclusively theirs so they can track KPIs, benchmarks, and actual performance alongside your team.

User roles can be defined to divide social media tasks among teams, create user groups, and specify access permissions. Users can be assigned to teams, and user groups can be assigned to campaigns. Oktopost’s single sign-on feature enables you to manage all of your customers’ accounts using the same login credentials.

One of the best social marketing platforms

2016-04-05

Social marketing is difficult for our team because we don't often have huge amounts of time to spend getting campaigns up and running.

Pros

• Outstanding customer support • Unique product - the campaign focus is excellent for marketing teams • Campaign tagging for report filtering • Reports are best-in-class with important metrics (conversion funnel)

Cons

• Basic in-app curation engine (although browser extension improves this functionality) • Limited social account overview feature in reporting

Helping our startup ramp our social brand

2017-05-08

Increased visibility Gaining brand awareness Lead gen has been a happy surprise

Pros

Good value for the money Advocacy is helping our social media newbies ease into building their profiles

Cons

Advocates wish they could schedule their personal tweets beyond just what's been posted to the board. Streams could use some refinement -- it's the one area I struggle to figure out.

Reporting, conversion tracking, advocacy - complete social reporting!

2015-10-07

Strategic Internet Consulting have been using Oktopost for around six months to support social media activity in our Inbound campaigns.

Pros

- HubSpot integration and detailed conversion tracking to better assess social effectiveness - Autoposting features and bulk upload options for faster social message creation and scheduling (across all social platforms, not just twitter) - Feedly integration to make sharing industry content easy - Monitoring sections to view engagement and interaction - Campaign segmentation for easy use, scheduling and tracking

Cons

In the future we'd like to see more segmentation on the leaderboard - by social campaign if possible, as not everyone in the business needs to post on all topics.

Great B2B Social Automation Tool

2018-02-12

Pros

Gives you a calendar view of all your posts, allows you to create 'campaigns' and tag them for easy filtering in the analytics section, UTM parameters & link shortening via the campaign, track unknown visitors until they convert, social advocacy component built in, curated content, Marketo/SFDC integrations.

Cons

Not much really. The new UI has a lot of great updates.

As the only person managing my employer's social media presence, this has made my job more efficient

2017-05-04

Pros

The Advocacy Board feature has been instrumental in helping us grow our social media reach.

Cons

I think making the Calendar view contents be drag-and-dropable would be amazing. The social board expiration date resets when I go back to a piece of content I saved.

Good tool for Community Management

2014-12-03

Everything is one place where you can see what you've scheduled on which channels for which days.

Pros

- it suggests optimal post timing for your key channels - easy to work with user interface - great for scheduling posts - downloading reports in PDF is easy

Cons

- you can't publish one post to multiple channels at the same time - I couldnt't tag people on Google+ - doesn't allow you to post images on LinkedIn

Good option for social syndication

2019-10-22

Although we really didn't have much other choice for platforms, this one works for us pretty well.

Pros

This is actually the only social platform that is out of box integrated with our marketing automation system, but we still find it effective.

Cons

You have to do it for all channels. I also don't really rely on the reporting data, so we just use Google Analytics.

Best B2B Social Media Platform

2018-10-26

I've been using Oktopost for over a year and I'm happy with the tool. Customer support is quick and helpful. They communicate new features regularly. I don't have any compliants.

Pros

- Ability to schedule posts across multiple profiles - Create 'campaigns' and tag campaigns for reporting - Advocacy built in - Content calendar - Content suggestions - Social Listening - All the integrations

Cons

It would be nice to have a content calendar for advocacy posts like the regular posts.

Social media management tools that B2B marketers are looking for

2014-02-24

Oktopost is superior to its competitors, in part because the social media tools it provides align so closely with what B2B marketers are looking for.

Pros

Ability to autopost on LinkedIn groups is useful for B2B marketers.

Cons

It's not possible to track Twitter mentions, only retweets

Okto-perfect lol

2016-09-28

I still think there are some things it can improve on but honestly this is the best B2B social tool on the market without a doubt.

Pros

Campaigns, Streams, Advocacy Board User Management

Cons

Hardly anything tbh - i think the streams area could have top level tabs. For example I want to have 5 streams in the UK and then have the same streams in French etc. So the tool might need to be considered from a GLOBAL company perspective but other then that it is a perfect tool.

Social Management Platform for B2B

2018-12-10

We've tied our social media to our actual return on investment in campaigns and gained a ton of insight into the efficacy of our social in general.

Pros

Tons of analytics insight for social that you don't normally see in these kinds of platforms.

Cons

Using the platform to its fullest takes 2-3 hours of training with an Oktopost rep. That's more than any other scheduler I've used previously.

Overall good social media management, but can use some polish

2020-09-28

Overall good - once the two liked items in my review get addressed it'll be great.

Pros

Integrations - Oktopost can be connected to the most popular social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram), Bitly, and Google Analytics.

Cons

Editing recurring posts - our previous software would let us edit a whole series of recurring posts if we needed to do any updates to that series. With Oktopost, once you schedule recurring posts, you have to then edit them one by one if you need to. Scheduling - when scheduling, I want to see which days already have posts in them so we avoid overlap.

Our company has solved the problem of not having social connectors.

Pros

Great, affordable social media tool for any size organization

2019-05-03

Pros

Ability to create campaigns and tag them with campaign attributes is a plus.

Cons

Reporting could be a bit more robust, along with the platforms ability to recommend the "best" time to post based on past performance. No Live Chat option can be frustrating, although email support is generally pretty quick (one business day).
