HootSuite offers all the necessary online materials, including guidelines on how to use and also optimize usage of the tool. There are numerous video trainings and lots of webinars, so there is no lack of basic training information. Users that want to use HootSuite for professional purposes, like market segment analysis or competitor analysis might need to request private training options.

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.

I would prefer a PDF to video, but it’s good. I would have expected more documentation to be available, but this is a good resource. We also got one session with our account rep. It was fine, 90%. She knows the tool well from a functionality perspective, but you could tell that she was not really a practitioner or user of the tool.

Their videos are fine. I wouldn't say they are worse or better than their competition.
