Well, one day my marketing manager was on leave and I had to urgently start a marketing campaign but thanks to POSTOPLAN they provided us the facility to group my posts before we post them on social media so I re-use them made some changes in it, and post them on all platforms by a single click.

Hootsuite

I like how simple it is to navigate the platform. It allows me to easily arrange my material and share my posts across several platforms in a sensible and orderly manner. Furthermore, whenever I have a problem with scheduling, I can obtain help quickly from the service team. I've been using Hootsuite since 2021 and haven't missed a single post.

Pros

CONTENIVE

  • I can do Post planning in which I can create posts for that specific date or we can say schedule posting. It will be posted on that said date depending on the social network accounts you set on that post.
  • It has a multi-language feature so it can supports variety of users.
  • Aside from accessing it through web browsers, it has also a mobile app making it more accessible to its users and just one click away from using it.

Hootsuite

  • Hootsuite is excellent for viewing all your posts on every social media platform in one place
  • Hootsuite is great for showing you what that post will look like with the graphic attached.
  • Hootsuite is great for moving posts that need to be edited to a different day or month.
  • Hootsuite is great for offering you times to post if you aren't sure at which time to post

Cons

CONTENIVE

  • A broader trial period for newbies to make a more detailed decision.
  • Registration through the app should be enabled as some persons complete a lot of tasks from their mobile devices and may not be able to access a laptop the moment they become interested in being a customer.
Read full review

Hootsuite

  • I wish I could have Hootsuite automatically delete hashtags from my Facebook posts, which would save me having to delete them manually before hitting post to multiple accounts.
  • Hootsuite doesn't work great when trying to add multiple photos to an Instagram post.
  • I wish there was an ability to have notifications from accounts pop up or somehow notify me elsewhere on my computer. You might need an app rather than a browser window to accomplish this however.

Likelihood to Renew

CONTENIVE

Personally, after using POSTOPLAN it has helped us immensely in increasing my business revenue. Hence, will not hesitate in renewing my account on POSTOPLAN.

Hootsuite

At this time we are satisfied that Hootsuite offers the most of what we are looking for at the most reasonable price point. As the social media landscape and monitoring/scheduling software changes, so do our needs. We re-evaluate our tools semi-annually or as new tools emerge onto the market. If we find at any point that we aren't gaining an advantage, then we are open to switching products.

Usability

CONTENIVE

Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with POSTOPLAN as it serves all my needs. The experience is very pleasant. It is an evolving product and I wish it a great success. I hope they keep the price policy contained. I recommend it 100%.

Hootsuite

The layout of horizontal columns for each stream or search is a very cumbersome way to display information. There isn't an easy way to sort, filter, or otherwise re-organize the streams to limit the current view to relevancy. This is one of the primary reasons why we plan to move to another platform.

Reliability and Availability

It help to save my time,it is always available. So far i dont have any problems with this automated service.

Hootsuite

Any outages are communicated in advance and have not been a problem. We let our clients know based on communications from HootSuite. Since we operate 24/7 with multiple shifts, planned outages can interfere with our operations, but we can always work around it.

Hootsuite

Hootsuite makes passing on articles from the web very easy- when it works! I have had a number of gliches with Chrome where it does not open properly and the solution (after some toing and froing with support) was to uninstall and reinstall. The support staff are always very helpful (which is great!) but the gliches..... well, they suck when you are already busy!

Support Rating

CONTENIVE

The support was everything. There was prompt communication from the expert assigned to me. He was always there to talk me through the process and they were able to integrate my ideas and visualize it to my targeted audience. I have not really experienced any issue whatsoever since using CONTENIVE.

Hootsuite

I haven't had to use support for Hootsuite at all, but from what I hear, their functionality is incredible! I hope I never have to use support, but it's good to know that they're efficient at their job, and it is one of the reasons why I love Hootsuite so much.

Hootsuite

Would rate it a 10. We received two hours of online training and it was of very high-quality. HootSuite also offers HootSuite University which is an extremely comprehensive training portal with self-paced quizzes, training webinars and videos, best-practice papers, product certification, and access to a network of external experts. This is a fantastic resource.

Hootsuite

One person of the organization must take the time to understand the product throughly. Next that person should work with the Hootsuite team to maximize the architecture of your platform and mitigate any problems that may crop up. Also, if a team members voices a concern or is having a problem roll your sleeves up and help them if not it can kill support for the product and end any chances of a renewal. Lastly, set aside enough time to allow for training and refresher training. Solve all problems ambiguity can not be permitted

Alternatives Considered

CONTENIVE

POSTOPLAN is better than the social media scheduling app I previously used. I am satisfied with what POSTOPLAN is bringing to us. Besides, we have tried to look up other options and the pricing is quite high as compared to POSTOPLAN, which you can use for a huge number of accounts without additional fees.

Hootsuite

A colleague recommended that I look at Hootsuite as an invaluable extension of our social media engagement strategy. When I began this role and sparked a renewed focus on marketing and communication, I encouraged the use of Hootsuite. My colleagues have enjoyed using the platform, and we are very satisfied with the way Hootsuite enables our work to go forward.

Return on Investment

CONTENIVE

  • The most relevant impact on our business is the generation of engagements on our every post, which converts to sales of our products.
  • We were able to increase our sales by 10% and we are looking at ROI by month three on one of our products.
  • Not a negative impact but rather a positive impact on the reduction of effort in manual posts due to scheduled automated posts.
Read full review

Hootsuite

  • I have been able to evaluate which posts, in general, do well and figure out what types of posts to make (content)
  • It's been harder however to compare on social medial platform compared to another because it's hard to duplicate a post with a new owly (I think you used to be able to) but more so, you also can't assign it a custom owly link so I can see at a glance which owly link was associated with what platform.
