Overall Satisfaction with Hootsuite

I use it to help automatise the process of posting on linked in and to make sure that I am able to get the post up and live at the peak times to ensure that it can gain as much traction as possible. I also appreciate being able to sort out all of my posts for the week in one day and don't have to keep reminding myself to do it.
  • Scheduling Posts
  • Showing what the post will look like before posting
  • Simple to use
  • Be able to attach PDFs to posts
  • Suggest good trending hashtags
  • Have better free options
  • Advertising
  • Content Engagement
  • Marketing efficiency
I used to use TweetDeck way back. Since finding Hootsuite I have not used any other products as I have found one that I like and that makes it easy and straightforward to schedule everything in one place which I could not do on TweetDeck, so they didn't really stack up that well.
Very good and well-thought-out tool. The main issue I have is around posting PDFs to LinkedIn. That would be very useful as PDFs read very well on Linkedin and are growing in popularity, so it could be something worth looking into when it comes to improving Hootsuite. apart from that everything works well.

Do you think Hootsuite delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Hootsuite again?


When doing marketing, advertising, and business development it comes in helpful. Where it may struggle is with small businesses that need to post a lot but, don't necessarily have the financial viability to pay for the service. I personally only use it for LinkedIn as that is where all of my business work is located and the audience that I am trying to reach.
