Hootsuite
[AdEspresso is] great if you have a smaller budget or are just getting started with Facebook advertising. You can easily create ads and publish them in minutes after everything is set up for your account. I would recommended trying it if you don't have a lot of experience, but not to manage a large account with multiple clients (10+)

Insightpool
I recommend Insightpool for anyone looking to build and maintain a relevant follower pool on Twitter as well as anyone that wishes to use Twitter for event recruitment, white paper downloads, etc. With a small team, I strongly recommend the full-service model, especially when you first get started. It's like having an in-house social team when you opt for full-service and has enabled us to do much more on Twitter than was previously possible with our small team.

Cons
Hootsuite
  • It is a bit limited in features, for example can't do everything that you can do in Facebook's Business Manager
  • There are certain levels, depending on budget, so you'll have to pay more to use it the higher your budget is
  • Could use an update for Lead Ad creation, found it very tough and couldn't get things to synch correctly.

Insightpool
  • Initial iterations of the tool were buggy and not all that intuitive, which is why we moved to a full-service model. More recent releases are much more intuitive and less buggy.
  • The tool was limited before its ability to search Twitter steams, but now with stream search, we do not feel hindered in anyway.
  • Personally, I'm not a fan of public message targeting. Use with caution. The DM feature works great and is very well received by our audience however.

Just renewed for the rest of the year. Pricing is very reasonable especially when you compare it to the cost of paid Twitter campaigns. And, Insightpool campaigns have consistently outperformed direct Twitter campaigns.

Alternatives Considered
Hootsuite
I find it a lot more detailed in creation and ad reporting, but not very user friendly or helpful if you encounter an error or something happens that needs to be fixed. AdEspresso [by Hootsuite] is better if you want an easier experience and less to look at while you're creating your ads.

Insightpool
We've used sponsored Tweets via Twitter directly with limited success. We don't see the same level of engagement or types of followers with paid Twitter promos as we do with Insightpool campaigns. Additionally, we receive a fair amount of negative feedback when we use sponsored tweets as they tend not to be as targeted as running Insightpool campaigns
