Effective software management with SproutSocial

2018-07-02

Overall, with all the unique features available, SproutSocial is stronly recommended for any business requiring social media management tool.

Pros

This is a comprehensive platform for managing various social media channels such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram. Additionally, the dashboard is super user-friendly where you can manage social engagement and pre-set time for the posting of content. SproutSocial has some CRM features and very impressive analytical capabilities.

Cons

Other software such as Zoho Social and Hootsuite may be considerably better for combined social publishing and analytics platforms.

Best Features for the Cost

2018-09-07

The ability to centralize our social media in one place and be able to not jump page to page to page to do everything.

Pros

Zoho Social has everything you need in a social media marketing software plus more and it's reasonable. The monitoring feature beats out many of the more expensive software on the market and it can directly post on Instagram which many others are unable to do.

Cons

My only critique would be the ability to preview posts before sending them out as others do such as Sprout Social

A Valid Alternative to Sprout Social and Hoote Suite

2018-10-19

I have been actively searching for an alternative to Sprout Social for over a year, and Zoho has easily landed in the top three among the more than 20 Social Media Management programs on the market.

Pros

The ability to schedule posts in advance across multiple platforms

Cons

The inability to post across multiple brands simultaneously.

By far our favourite!

2018-09-14

We have team members all over the globe, we love that no matter where we are or what specific need we are targeting, Zoho Social pulls through for us every time

Pros

Some of them being Hootsuite, Sprout Social, and Social Pilot.

Cons

The only drawback that we found is that the mobile app is not as user friendly as we would hope, but all in all it does not deter from Zoho Social for us.

Cheaper and Better than Other Options

2016-10-04

For the same functionality (albeit with a prettier interface), Sprout Social--for example--charges $100 a month.

One of the Most Intuitive Social Media Tools Out There

2018-08-08

It's great. This is the tool I keep falling back on. It's definitely well-worth a look, and worth a try and buy. While the price could've been just a little friendlier, I still love how cost-effective it actually is in comparison with other social media management tools out there.

Pros

It covers the functionalities of some of the more expensive tools out there - Hootsuite, SocialPilot, Sprout Social, you name it.

Cons

1. It's cheaper by comparison, but could've been more price friendly for younger organizations. 2. Automated scheduling doesn't exist 3. Recommended time for maximum engagement is a feature I would love on any social media management tool, but doesn't effectively work on Zoho Social. 4. Twitter tagging from the app works, and it's great. But some of the other tools also allow for LinkedIn tagging, which doesn't happen on Zoho Social - as far as I can tell.
