Key Negotiation Points

Hootsuite took the time to learn about our specific needs related to the channels we utilize and the industry in which we work. They provided several potential solutions and variations from which we could choose. We were able to then provide feedback on what we needed and didn't need when it came to the various features like training, crisis management simulations, scanning for any channels related to our company and price.

Key Negotiation Points

Clients considering Pro and Enterprise plans can negotiate on different topics, including how many users are going to work with the tools; what kind of support is necessary; and the amount of credits required to track the data via analytics reports. For this reason, it is advisable to decide exactly how the tool will be used before engaging into a firm business relationship. Bear in mind that you have an option to try things out with a trial account, so use this trial wisely!.

Key Negotiation Points

We were on older pricing scale. That account had 30 seats. Recently we added additional seats and in order to do that, we migrated to new pricing scheme. This is more expensive, but HootSuite justifies the higher price by including unfettered access to analytics for all users at no extra cost. However, as we use Radian 6 for analytics, this doesn’t really affect us. Under the new pricing model we can add additional seats for an additional price.
