Overall Satisfaction with Hootsuite
I used Hootsuite to help schedule social content on several social media channels for multiple brands. I would use the calendar for scheduling, and I would use the listening tool to keep up with comments and at-mentions for our brands across social channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, and Instagram.
- Really helps with content management
- Helps show a visual representation of the number of posts per month/quarter as well as results on those posts
- Helped manage inbound messages from consumers on our social channels, and was especially helpful on Twitter and Facebook where we got a lot of customer service messages
- Khoros Marketing (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
We originally used Hootsuite and we really loved it, however, we switched to Khoros (then Spredfast) because our parent company had a global contract with them, and we had to switch. We were able to get more robust reporting from Spredfast, but Hootsuite was more user-friendly and they had great customer service.
We had a dedicated account manager who was always there to answer our questions and was really responsive. Even though they were based in Canada they flew to our offices a couple of times to help with the implementation of Hootsuite in our organization. They had really phenomenal customer service.
Do you think Hootsuite delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Hootsuite again?
I think Hootsuite is a great starting platform for anyone who is looking for a tool to help schedule content on multiple social channels. I think it's a great tool to help with distribution and keeping on top of comments on those social channels. It's also a really great platform for anyone on a budget because their free version is really robust for what it provides. However, Hootsuite does not have the best reporting platform (when I used it anyway), and if you're managing multiple brands, it's tricky to add several accounts that you manage in one account.
