Pros

Great options, overall even with the manual process for instagram the experience is good. It would be excellent with the addition of being able to auto pilot instagram adds.
Having tools for content marketing is awesome. Auto-posting and having a design app integrated is awesome.
The editor is a FANTASTIC feature. Being able to set custom dimensions and the ability to edit the pre-made templates are huge pros.

Pros

But styling is so important to make a good impression and engage your viewer, so it's great that CANVA does the work for you and you can focus on content.
I absolutely love everything about Canva. It is so easy to use and there are thousands of templates for creating great advertising and marketing material.
I love this program and how easy it is to make professional looking graphics. I love all the options you can use, the functionality and ease of putting together flyers, booklets, etc.

Cons

As someone who works on dozens of clients as part of an agency, this product is frustrating, as it limits the number of accounts you can work on for each pricing tier.
Go look for other options if you want to find fresh content for your social media accounts. Given its lack of updates I suspect this tool has been abandoned.
Not being able to post from my phone and having to post from the laptop or iPad can be a bit annoying at times.

Cons

Sometimes it will crash or slow down without warning while I am working on a more graphically-intense project, such as an animated image.
There is nothing that I can say bad about this product. I have yet to have a problem with anything as of yet.
There is a problem with Arabic text when exporting the photo. It makes the design has a bad look and there is a problem with the pixels.

Excellent features, support could be better

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's easy-peasy to create awesome looking social media posts. If you like Canva, you'll like PromoRepublic. I bought a lifetime deal from AppSumo.

Cons

The support leaves a lot to be desired; we couldn't get the second user integrated into the system. It is largely unusable.

PromoRepublic

One of the best platforms for scheduling social

Reviewed 5 months ago

Has been great, I schedule instagram, facebook, linkedin and now even videos in the platform.

Pros

I love that you can shcedule most of the social platforms in here with just one click and has a canva functionalityt embedded to it which makes it even easier to use.

Cons

The price tag is kinda expensive but I got it on a sale on Apssumo which made the purchase a complete gift for me.

Decently priced for decently curated content.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

There are a lot of pros to PromoRepublic, even if my headline doesn't sound like it! I really like their Canva-like image editing and creation tool and the fact that you can change the images they recommend for your specific branding. The calendar tool is handy to have and I like that PromoRepublic integrates with so many 3rd party tools, especially Buffer.

Cons

Most of the content I curate is about social media marketing and it's really frustrating that their search function returns outdated and low-quality articles. When I search for specific topics unrelated articles are recommended.

Truly a One Fits All Solution for Social Media Management

Reviewed 9 months ago

Our overall experience with PromoRepublic has been superb. Their customer service sets the bar for all other companies. Shout out to Vita—she's fantastic!

Pros

The interface is very user friendly. Connecting social media pages is ridiculously easy! PromoRepublic has a library of pre-made templates/post ideas that are absolutely inspiring. The editor is a FANTASTIC feature. Being able to set custom dimensions and the ability to edit the pre-made templates are huge pros!

Cons

It would be awesome to have the ability to create a folder structure in the Saved section of the editor to help keep everything in organized and easily found. A larger selection of fonts and elements in the editor, and the ability to upload custom fonts would be nice. If the editor turns into something like Canva offers, then PromoRepublic will have it all.

PromoRepublic is My GO-To for Social Media

Reviewed a month ago

PromoRepublic is an easy to use social media platform. I use it for all of my clients. I like that they are still working on adding features. I also like that there are a lot of templates to choose from when building my posts. I can also save ideas for future posts.

Pros

I like that I can make my design my images within the software - I don't need Canva or any other option to make my images. I also like that I can save my scheduled posts in an Excel report to give to my client and for future reference. I also like that the software gives me analytics for ALL of my posts not just the ones I posted through PromoRepublic.

Cons

If I have to be picky I would say what I wish I could do is download a copy of my posts in an Excel file AFTER they have been posted. Occasionally I have added posts and I would like my clients to share that I have added this information.

PromoRepublic

The most complete social media software on the market

Reviewed 2 years ago

I can plan a whole month of updates on all my social media profiles within a 1/2 day of work, so I love that PromoRepublic helps me be very efficient with the time I spend on social media. That's why I keep using it since 2016, and why I recommend it to my clients too.

Pros

- Many social media platforms are included, which allows to post simultaneously on Facebook (pages + groups), Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest. - You can create your images within the software, as it includes a picture creation tool that looks very similar to Canva; and allows you to resize your pictures too. - You have updates that are pre-created for you, should you wish to use them, which saves you time thinking about what to post and when. - You have calendar features that help you strategise relevant seasonal content to share with your audience. - You can re-post some of the updates you created in the past. - You can upload photos, gif, videos.

Cons

- The pricing might be a bit stiff when you're starting out, but when you consider how much time you're saving through using the tool, it's well worth it.
