Echobox is great when multiple parties need to sign off on a sponsored social post. I'm able to build the post, save it as a draft and send a screenshot as a preview to clients. Once I've pushed out the post, I can access analytics to report back to the client on the performance of the post.

If you have content that can be read through an RSS feed, you need Echobox! If your content can be reposted later, their evergreen function is the best to always have something to post.

It is a good option to optimize your social media team and its work. It allows you to improve your content, even more if you are a media company and you work on news.

Echobox saves time and helps increase efficiency. However, there is still some features that needs to be adapted to make Echobox better

The tool is perfect for programming a post in a time slot at the best moment. It is also good for 'breaking news" posts. However, it lacks an overview mode when scheduling loads of posts.There might be a feature to add, like "super scheduler" where the user could focus on programming (time-line view maybe?) and where the AI shows best moments to post.

Echobox is great at helping our team coordinate and optimize all social posting to Facebook, whether it is completely new stories or re-sharing existing evergreen content. At the same time, the A/B testing feature provides a quick and easy way to find the most appealing content to our audience and boost our performance.

Echobox is excellent for social media managers who need to post cross-platform. It allows you to set up posts on multiple platforms simultaneously, but without the restriction of having to post at the exact same time. One can choose to let Echobox optimize the timing of your posts, or you can select a window or an exact time, which is very helpful either way, depending on if you know your peak audience hours or not. I personally like optimizing on weekends or during the night when I'm not online. I also love that you can A/B test posts on Facebook to drill into what makes your audience click. Finally, it's very intuitive to use so even people not familiar with social media can swiftly learn how to post.

Echobox is helpful for small companies or companies with minimal manpower. Echobox is easy to use, convenient, reliable. Echobox can actually replace a team of 4 people. You just need one person to monitor it and Echobox will do the job for you. Just log-in and schedule post based on your liking and it will deliver. Very easy.

If you have a lot of production (large number of daily articles) and you want to know what and when it's best to post on social media this is going to be a very useful tool. It has a scoring system that enlists the content according to predicted traffic and interaction. It constantly measures the historical performance of your posts during periods of time you can select and monitor.

  • Gives scores/ratings for how well posts will do (even though it’s not entirely clear how it gets to this score, or how accurate it is).
  • Gives statistics for how well things have done, which is useful for resharing. I.e. you can look at click-through and engagement rates.

Perfect for large teams with many hands in the pot, takes the guesswork out of what to post and when to post it. Not great if personal opinions are meant to guide content decisions.

Echobox is ideal for an online publication that has lots of content — shifting through all that and deciding which one will perform best on social media can be a time-consuming and rather subjective process. Echobox goes through the website content and chooses posts with higher virality scores and helps improve your social media presence. At the same time, it reposts older content so they are able to get more views.

Because of its rather high price, Echobox may not be optimal for small organizations that have lower post volumes or where content is basically static.

Echobox is best suited when you have regular content you want to share on your social media. Finding the best time to publish a post isn't always easy and EB is able to do it with great results. It also allows you to focus on your work (writing articles, study a certain subject, etc), without having to worry about creating a post afterward. If you do need to personalize said post, you don't need to visit all the platforms to do so - do everything in Echobox's website.

Echobox is well-suited to us because we are a news publication and therefore produce a lot of content, daily and weekly. Because we are weekly paper (most of our content is published in sync with the paper on a Friday) the automatic feed is perfect for sorting and scheduling from the moment the website is updated at midnight. It is more intelligent with SEO etc. than we could ever be. Before, we had to manually schedule everything, which was not only time-consuming, but based on human instinct and outdated evidence rather than algorithms.

I think that is perfect for all the media companies that have to manage many profiles and always need to be on time. It's less appropriate if you have to manage a less active profile because in this case, you could just use the Facebook planning tool.

Echobox is an ideal tool for publishing and scheduling content at all times; however, it should be considered that the Echobox AI launches the content with the first paragraph of the note as is and is not necessarily the appropriate copy for social networks.

It's appropriate if you run social media sites for a number of pages/companies and need to find a way to optimize your time. If you are only using a few accounts, it might not be worthwhile.

Echobox's automation frees up a lot of time for digital editors/audience managers to perform other relevant tasks. It's most beneficial for evergreen or normal posts in selecting the timing for the best audience reach. The automation did require some adjustment in terms of keywords to filter out as some content from our international news feeds was hours behind our local reporting, but these adjustments were easy and user-friendly. The user experience is easy to grasp, as staff had little difficulty understanding the concepts behind Echobox's sharing and automation. Breaking news is somewhat trickier to handle with automation—the AI does not always clearly designate which stories are breaking when staff is not there to oversee the auto-feed, so manual sharing is occasionally warranted. That being said, the automation learns more each time we share breaking content, so this should improve significantly as we continue to use the program.

It's perfect to post content at an ideal hour, to maximise the post effect. It is less appropriate if we need to post something immediately.

Echobox is easy to read and will also load every article specific to the category into the news feed; this means sometimes we see good stories which we’ve missed and still have a sporting relevance. It’s easy to reorder stories and reshare stories from previous weeks, keeping the same caption. It would be great if somehow when a story has gone out, the option to reshare it comes with the exact original wording and photo comp of the post, instead of reverting to the default setup. Echobox can be slow to switch to other pages, sometimes not even doing this at all and is stuck on the same page, so you have to again click on the relevant page you want to switch to. Echobox is extremely useful for looking at link clicks, for A/B testing which gives us the best possible chance to sell a story, and displays the information in a very clear manner.
