If you are an agency that manages multiple clients, this is an excellent tool for you. It creates ease by separating each client but keeping all of each clients' platforms together (i.e., FB, IG, LI, etc.). It also allows you to share your view with each client so they can view or approve posts before they go out if that is something they're interested in. However, if you are an individual, this tool has more in it than you'd need. Although it's a great tool, there isn't a need to have a lot of the features that it has if you are only one company using the tool.

Kapost has potential to be a great asset in small and large orgs. If you're not producing a great deal of content, or coordinating across a large team, there's still tremendous value, but it scales as your org scales because it makes it easier to coordinate and manage large teams and large content archives.

Pros

PromoRepublic

  • The scheduler is great, and it even provides recommendations for what to post when.
  • They're constantly offering educational webinars on how to get the most out of not only their product, but SMM in general.
  • The library of editable posts is a real differentiator, though it won't help all industries equally.

  • Filtering: If you make the most out of your custom details and custom fields, you can gain newfound access to materials that may have long been lost in the ether. It's really easy for us, for instance, to see all of our videos at once. Or everything targeting a certain buying stage. Or you can keyword search to see everything on one topic.
  • Workflows: It's really nice to lay out "who sees what when" in a digital way, because everyone involved on an asset can easily see what stage things are at. You can also set deadlines to tasks, which seems a bit more firm than a casual email, because you can visually see how meeting your deadline fits within the whole timeline.
  • Calendars: The calendar feature is nice for us because we have a blog, so we can see when everything is (supposed) to go live. It's easy to see when I, as a copy editor, should be expecting work, so I can align my day accordingly. Way better than the old-fashioned "mental note" system.

Cons

PromoRepublic

  • No direct posting to IG. I still have to have photos sent to my phone before I can post on Instagram.
Naomi Marie Brand | TrustRadius Reviewer

Upland Kapost

  • Social media distribution needs improvement. Specifically a calendar for planned Tweets and a better way to schedule multiple shares of the same content.
  • System performance is somewhat slow.
  • Should be an easier way to make changes, like adding custom fields or publication destinations, to all content types, rather than one at a time.

We are using some other systems that might have replaced Kapost, but none of them had the workflow functionality we were looking for. So, we're sticking with Kapost for now.

The calendar view is a great feature and so are the custom views. It is relatively easy to see a clear view of what content the user is responsible for and then the due dates associated to it. The ability to create and update workflows for the team is easy to navigate and keeps us on track.

The reputation of the product matches up to its reputation as one of the leaders in the space. I love that you can share and access content at your fingertips from anywhere. The downside is that it does not have the prettiest interface but you can get over this with its functionality.

Hootsuite is what my office primarily uses and it's good. I just prefer the way you can see all the posts in the calendar dashboard on PromoRepublic and I like that it has fresh curated content for me to peruse.

Workfront has a lot of great features, but Kapost was the right tool for what we needed at the time. With a team of our size, we had to make sure we weren't biting off more than we could chew and the project never got off the ground. We had to be thoughtful with how we rolled it out.

Return on Investment

PromoRepublic

  • Extremely positive ROI as the next best alternative to PromoRepublic, in my opinion, is a full-service solution that runs an average of $500/mo.
Brian Del Terzo Credilife® | TrustRadius Reviewer

Upland Kapost

  • It allows us all to compare other email campaigns to each other. We are also able to get almost instant results.
  • By having a working one system - we all can expect the same quality newsletters versus using an outside designer.
