Hootsuite

Hootsuite is well suited for those managing a single social media account or dozens. It can be used by small businesses all the way up to large scale marketing agencies. The ability to post to multiple channels at once is so incredibly helpful and a huge time saver. Give it a try, you will be glad you did.

Pros

Hootsuite

  • The great thing about it is that it allows us in making schedules for social media posts belonging to different pages.
  • I strongly appreciate its analytics and tracking the most which help us a lot in facilitating our business in many ways. It let us organize our whole social media. It has made our marketing staff contented.
  • This is the most helpful tool in tracking matrices, followers, posts, and weekly activities as well.
  • This superb tool helps us in keeping the whole social media at a single location.

POSTOPLAN

  • Scheduling posts is very easy and quick. Whatever the time zone is it displays it when we schedule the post and some of scheduling apps doesn't have this feature at all. It is very helpful for Virtual employees like us.
  • Can add many accounts to publish. I already added 10 accounts.
  • Can view scheduled posts (content plan) in one screen. If schedule 2 or more for one day every one displays easy to read thumbnails.
  • User friendly layout and design. The menu is very straightforward and contains vital shortcuts and details on where we want to go.

Cons

Hootsuite

  • I personally don't like the way Hootsuite displays multiple social channels on the interface. It's very utilitarian and it does have a modern look, but there's just something about the multiple column look that really bugs me. It feels a bit dated and cluttered.
  • I've used both the free and the pro versions before. Pro is somewhat overpriced for the value that it provides and the free version limits you to too few social profiles which puts you in a position to either overpay or go to another option like Buffer which is cheaper but isn't as reliable. I'd say somewhere around $12-15/mo. would make the single-user Pro tier more palatable.

POSTOPLAN

  • Adding dialogue boxes is very useful however if i wanted to increase the size of the boxes I had to zoom in on the page itself post which I was able to increase the size of the boxes.
  • Clicking on the history icon in the graphics editor, the language in it is different then what is seen on the website. In my case I was reading the website in English but the data in the history tab was in Russian language which was bit inconvenient when I wanted to review my changes.
  • Would have been nice if there was a feature to move the unsaved work in the graphics editor to draft if the tab got closed or got refreshed for some reason.
  • Tried using postoplan native application. But the overall experience was very poor as I was not even able to login to the app using my google account as no google login or any other social media login options were provided as it were on its website.
  • Would have been nice if POSTOPLAN had their own desktop application as well. Would have helped me resolve many issues which I face when using the platform on browser. Since at times I have faced issues wherein the browser got closed mistakenly due to which my unsaved work on graphics editor got wasted.

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.

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.

POSTOPLAN is a simple tool that can be used for promotional activities and communication even by people who are not experts in marketing or social media. For small businesses who don't have resources to spend on complex and expensive campaigns, POSTOPLAN is an excellent tool. Large organizations may have some specific needs that are currently not supported by this app.

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 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!

Their customer support has been very helpful during the few times I have contacted them. They seem to be knowledgeable and friendly. As users, you can reach them via email, live chat, tickets, and tweeter. They have a help center within the app that provides users with step-by-step guides and a resource library.

There are so many convenience benefits that I get from this platform and this platform is extraordinary. One of the features I like most is its automatic posting. I love the calendar post idea--this is the best feature, in my opinion. Besides, it is very easy to use; this platform is perfect for beginners.

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.

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

Hootsuite

Sprout Social has a better UI than Hootsuite. It uses a single feed approach compared to the multi-column layout that allows you to check and uncheck filters based on what you'd like to see at a given moment. Overall, Hootsuite was a better choice for our team given the stronger analytics reporting that it provided. Being in a data-driven business, this was particularly important to us to be able to provide performance metrics to leadership. Both tools are fairly similar, so it really is a toss-up in terms of which you should choose.

We honestly have not used any social media manager like POSTOPLAN. We might try other options but so far we are 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.

Return on Investment

Hootsuite

  • Honestly, Hootsuite has been pretty close to a wash for us. The frequency with which we've had to wrestle with our Facebook Business connection has caused us to repeatedly put Hootsuite on the shelf and opt for manual posting to both FB and Instagram.
  • During the times it functioned properly, Hootsuite probably saved us around an hour of work per day, if you factor in both time required to post to various platforms and potential time spent ensuring/editing consistency between posts.
Brock Ross | TrustRadius Reviewer

POSTOPLAN

  • The most relevant impact on our business is the generation of engagements on our every post, which converts to sales 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.
