Hootsuite Aggregated Reviews
I’ve never gotten a lot out of hootsuite at any level.
Used to use Hootsuite, but switched to eclincher based off of good reviews. Functionality, and ease of use i’m super happy with
I’m a fan of hootsuite. What exactly are you looking to upgrade to? As in what features are you looking for that Hootsuite doesn’t have. Depending on your budget Sysomos might be another option to you.
Hootsuite is by far one of the best I’ve used. The platform is easy to use and makes scheduling posts/managing a breeze.
Now if only it cam with a built-in hashtag generator for SMM purposes….
I’ve tried a number of apps/websites to help streamline my social media and none of them have been ideal. I’ve come up with my own scheduling system which takes an Instagram post and automatically shares it with Twitter and Pinterest. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and, so far, I’ve found it easier and more convenient than Hootsuite.
Hootsuite is my go-to free option. The interface isn’t as clean as I’d like, but if I’m using it for small/personal projects then think the free price tag is a fair trade-off.
Hootsuite will be the cheaper option if price is a concern and also integrates with a lot more apps than Agorapulse. Sign up for a free trial of them both to see which one best suits your needs.
I am a bit late to the party but thought I’d add my two cents as well. Hootsuite is more of a social media management platform rather than a monitoring tool, similarly to Sprout Social and Buffer . Sure, you can use them for monitoring, but these are not monitoring tools at their core.
You could also try some free tools, someone mentioned TweetDeck which I am personally a big fan of, however, it will only help you with Twitter automation.
I’ve had the same issues with Hootsuite, but pricing compared to Sprout Social and Hubspot is drastically different. I use Hubspot , but it’s not cheap like Hootsuite.
We currently are using Hootsuite at work. We’ve had issues with scheduling posts that have included images (as in, posts with images will not post at all), and needed to re-connect Hootsuite with our networks more than once (because scheduled posts kept rejecting, even if no image was added).
if you’re using a different SMM tool that’s not outrageously priced (I’m talking to you Hootsuite) let me know too!
Follow up question, do any of these apps support carousel posts? I’m using hootsuite rn and carousel posts still aren’t able to be scheduled (only 1 image is posted)
I’m using Hootsuite and loving it.
Yes, Hootsuite finally updated to post on your behalf the way it does for other platforms. Or more likely Instagram allowed it.
Knowledge of a specific product is rarely more important than knowledge of a subject matter. Products are far easier to learn and master, especially if you understand concepts. For instance, knowing how to use HootSuite takes far less time to master than knowing how to run and optimize a successful paid social program.
The magic of HootSuite is in the add-ons. Location-based targeting for Instagram for example. But good luck with whatever you find.
We recently moved to Sprout Social , its cheaper then HootSuite and supports all platforms.
If you’re interested in learning more about social media, Facebook Blueprint and Twitter Flight School both offer far far more for free. Please don’t waste your money with HootSuite. They’re trash.
No, there are so many free resources that are constantly being updated. Facebook Blueprint is a great place to start. (After all, they are the social media giant!) I agree with another user that Salesforce is more worth the price tag and Hootsuite is by no means a top software. I’ve worked in two top NYC social media agencies and neither of them use
You can try either HootSuite or Buffer . HootSuite lets you manage social media channels and you can use it to delegate tasks to other users. Buffer is a content publishing platform, which lets you publish and schedule content to social networks and it supports fewer platforms than Hootsuite. We are not a big fan of both, we use Facebook scheduler and analytics to post and monitor performance, same goes to other platforms.
I was using Hootsuite for a while, but it just seemed clunky for what I needed. I wanted something basic since I wasn’t really interested in social media reporting, so I switched to buffer and I love it.
I tested all the above for my company. We thought Loomly was the best by far because of its ease of use and pricing. It’s been 6 months since we switched from Hootsuite and it’s been amazing!
Hootsuite Pro has come a long way. I use it daily and as of the last month or so they finally have direct Instagram publishing. (Before you had to get a reminder to go manually post)
I am using SocialPilot. I used Hootsuite previously. I like SocialPilot better. I find it a little less tedious to use when posting a lot of content in advance. I don’t have anything against Hootsuite though. I should add that SP has everything you were asking about.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
GRIN launcher is born.
It is an outreach platform that we use to establish connections with editorial teams.
They say samples of published articles look good but pricing looks even better
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
