Likelihood to Recommend

Later

Later is great for not only small and large businesses, but also for influencers who want a curated feed that they can easily auto-publish. If you need to tag your Instagram photos on a consistent basis, that might be a struggle, but in general, for the minimal cost and features, Later is well worth the cost. Additionally, their technical support takes 24-28 hours to respond to via chat, but it's within the software so it's very simple.

[Tint should] Improve response times in between initial quotes and questions to same-day support as promised. Overall, for our limited needs for a social media at hosted conference, it suited our needs, but would not have paid extra for customer support - you will be on your own for this one. Customer support was factored into cost, which is why it is difficult to recommend TINT.

Pros

Later

  • Later is great at Instagram marketing thought leadership. I love their newsletters they send out on Instagram marketing tips and new features to take advantage of.
  • I love the ability to manage my visual content in once place in later. I can connect to Drive or Dropbox to bulk upload my images and categorize them with tags.
  • I also love the ability to store captions so that I can have a repository of captions and just connect them to an image.
  • It's really easy to tag others in my posts.

  • The social media wall became an instant hit at our conference.
  • The social media wall customization was excellent in terms of branding and customizations.

Cons

Later

  • Later doesn't allow you to tweet just a link (no photo attached), which can be a challenge at times when planning content.
  • It would be nice if Later could pull in posts that are shared natively. Sprout Social does this and it is very convenient.
  • As of right now, you can only sort by account (IG, TW, FB) to see your content. I would be nice if you could select multiple and see the content calendar as a whole across platforms.

  • Customer service: it took 10 business days to get initial questions answered from our sales contact, Matt. After we purchased the mid-grade package that came with prioritized email responses, it took 4 hours to respond to an emergency issue. We were never informed that our LinkedIn accounts would not be compatible with the Tint platform, which is significant is this is one of your main sources for content generation. After being able to jump on to a call with Alex and Customer Success in the middle of a crazy busy conference, we were promised a follow-up call to see what could be done about billing. 2 emails later and no response. I just received responses to some tickets 30+ days after event ended. Do not pay for the mid-grade package. Your emails will not be prioritized. Be sure to double check that all social media platforms you intend to use are functioning with platform before purchasing.
  • The auto scroll feature is a bit abrupt in transitions and would advise smoother visual when sliding between social media posts.
  • Better improvement on duplicate posts and pictures - many still made it through filter and generated repetitive content.

Later is extremely easy to use. I love the visual planner portion of the tool so I can see ahead of time what my images will look like next to and stacked amongst each other! The posts are so easy to set up, tag, and schedule. UX and UI are great!

Later are not just a software tool, they also provide marketing advice, tips, and tutorials via their blog. I’ve only had to reach out to them for help a few times and have found them to respond much faster than other tools in their category. I receive weekly emails with updates, marketing tips and invites to online events. I look forward to their emails as I’ve learned a lot of things that I’ve been able to actually implement.

Alternatives Considered

Later

We evaluated multiple social media scheduling programs and ultimately selected a service apart from Later, but with the addition of their new tools, we are looking to potentially go back. Later was always one of our frontrunners, and with its new improvements, we will likely be switching as we move into the new year. Later by far offers the most options and tools, including the ability to schedule Instagram stories in advance.

Tint

I chose Tint because of the ability to customize and better brand for social media wall engagement. And for promised customer support, which ultimately Tint lacks. I'm a nice guy and I also believe in holding companies accountable to the high standards that are promised.

Return on Investment

Later

  • It's hard to tell an overall ROI, but I feel it has been positive for the most part.
  • There are times that I have to reauthorize Facebook - sometimes I don't see or don't receive this alert in a timely manner so some posts go unposted that are scheduled.
  • Using the link in the bio feature better - so far I haven't had any results as I did with other products.
  • I wish there was auto-fill for website links used more than once.
  • I wish Instagram would allow users to be found when tagging.
  • The tagging function isn't intuitive, I wish I had gotten a tutorial on using it.
