Overall Satisfaction with dlvr.it

I came across Dlvr.it last year through a web recommendation. I use it to schedule social media posts across a number of different networks. I also use it to curate content to post on social media from trusted RSS sources. Having used Buffer and Hootsuite in the past I was interested to see how this relatively new kid on the block fared. Initially, I was very impressed. The automated RSS feeds were very good and kept some of my less active accounts stocked up with content. I also used the bulk import facility to create multiple tweets both for my social media accounts an a couple of client accounts. At this stage, I even purchased the top level package to enable me to do this.

Have now reverted to the free version to manage a subset of my accounts as using Zoho Social for the bulk uploads.
  • Ability to post to social networks from RSS Feeds
  • Fairly easy interface to use
  • Has a Chrome browser extension to facilitate easy posting from web
  • Power Scheduler was a useful tool to enable scheduling the bulk uploads at certain times
  • Recycling posts was a useful tool
  • Support of the product was a bit hit and miss. Some of the functionality I enjoyed that made me sign up in the first place like the ability to repost a tweet by clicking on it was taken away suddenly with no explanation. Although it was sort of replaced with EverQueue.
  • The interface was glitchy at times especially around creating categories and timings for bulk post scheduling. Eventually worked around it to make it work for me.
  • No phone app was a major disappointment as I find lots of stuff to post from my mobile.
  • When using it I did save time every week especially when posting for clients
  • Still saving time using the free version to keep a couple of accounts updated
  • It did however take me a bit of time to get the system to work for me
As a product dlvr.it stacks up quite well against the various social media management tools. However, it depends on what you want out of a system. I use Dlvr.it alongside the other tools to manage my social media activity. The RSS feed option for it makes it stand out. I now use Zoho Social to bulk post and Hootsuite to listen and engage on the networks. Not the best on its own but great as part of a wider toolset. The same can be said for all of the SM posting tools.
Dlvrit is useful for people wanting to populate their social media feeds with regular content both from other feeds and via bulk uploading. I still use the RSS feed tool to post to one of my Twitter accounts and the corresponding LinkedIn page. Only reason I stopped paying for it was because some of the functions such as the bulk scheduling came with another social media tool I had a subscription for: (ZohoSocial). The bulk uploading using Zoho is more useful for how I want to use it I want to post at a specific time every week with the same/similar tweet. It took me a while messing around with Dlvr.it to achieve this where it was a simple CSV upload with the dates and times in it for Zoho.
Not really suited to people who use smartphones a lot to post social content
