Buffer is a great tool! They have an amazing support team. My experience using Buffer has allowed me to schedule and share great content across multiple platforms. Pablo by Buffer, is what I call a "Canva Express," allows you to create an image to pair with your posted in a matter of seconds. Buffer once allowed for suggested content. This content helped beef up my pipeline of posts and even led me to having more followers and engagement. The metrics portion of Buffer is also great, and the weekly performance report card gives you a quick view of how you did for the week.

Pros :

  • Superb customer service.
  • Very easy to use.
  • Saves time.
  • Chrome widget that makes scheduling even easier!

Cons :

  • Free version only allows for 3 connected accounts. Limit to how many posts can be scheduled in advance.

HootSuite was a great fit for our needs. It is affordable, and able to be expanded as you grow. We liked HootSuite because of the abilities to assign teams to certain social media accounts or certain clients we are managing their social media for. You can see what other team members are posting, where and when which helps you plan when to post your content to avoid stacking content and not allowing it sometimes to reach your customers feeds.andnbsp;

Pros :

  • HootSuit allows direct uploading of YouTube videos.
  • It allows Facebook video uploading as well.
  • You are able to create teams and assign those teams to certain groups of social media accounts.
  • It has a built-in link shortener. This is really handy to post longer links and make them shorter to give your messages a cleaner appearance. Longer links to me sometimes look "spammy" in tweets and Facebook posts.
  • You can schedule posts far into the future. We currently have some posts scheduled 6-8 months out as they are reoccurring promotions or events.
  • You can view all the scheduled posts on your dashboard.
  • The dashboard is very clean and easy to navigate.
  • You can select what social media feeds, and what type of content from those feeds you want to see on your dashboard. For example, you want to view the clients Twitter account but also want to see tweets where they are mentioned. You can set up two different feeds on your dashboard to accomplish that.
  • It allows you to attach image to the messages.
  • It tells you how many characters you have left to use on each social media you have selected to post your content to.
  • You can select as many or only one platform to post your message to.
  • You can create draughts and go back to use them later.
  • It would alert you if a message did not post to a platform so you can go back and correct or repost.
  • It has a good reporting system to track what you are doing.
  • It will auto schedule for you if you do not want to schedule posts yourself.
  • It also has an auto content finder if you need extra content for your feeds.

Cons :

  • It allows you to select an Instagram account to schedule posts to, but to actually post you also have to have HootSuite on your mobile device and it will alert you there that an Instagram post is ready to send. So it isn't really automatic on Instagram.

    HootSuite is a fine tool for people that simply want to find a better way to spend their social media time. Unfortunately, it doesn’t allow you to do much else, so for me, it raises the question as to why? There are a very few brands out there that can afford to simply stay active on social media and engage with their community and have success without doing much else marketing work. Typically, people that want to grow their businesses have to take a more multifaceted approach. Sure, have social media is great, but to what end do you make that effort? What is the best case scenario? Someone falls in love with your Facebook posts so much that they decide to buy your goods or pay for your services? Most likely, that isn’t how it will go. It is much more likely that they will Like your post and move on, leaving all your hard work to waste. By taking a more strategic approach and linking all of your marketing efforts to ensure that they all drive towards the same goal, you will see an increase in overall production. Sure, getting people to Like your posts is good, but that doesn’t make a sell. What you need to be really focused on is driving value for your business, and the way you can do that is by leveraging and creating valuable content. Use your social networks to share this content, but have the content live on your website itself, that way people have to come to your website to view it. This enables them to be exposed to more of your material while also giving you the opportunity to gate some of the more valuable things. For instance, you can talk lightly about a topic in a blog article. This can be freely accessible to anyone. Then you can elaborate on that topic for a downloadable offer like a white paper or an eBook. That way you will gain their contact information and be able to market to them moving forward.

    Pros :

    • Easy to use.
    • Can schedule out posts for the future.
    • Makes it easy to post to a lot of networks at once.

    Cons :

    • This doesn't actually help you solve your problem of growing your business.
    • I might prefer an all in one tool like HubSpot.

    Buffer is a tool that, honestly, I couldn’t live without! It helps me share all the great content that I consume each morning over the course of the day, and by doing so, it helps me keep my online presence going even when I’m neck-deep in client work (and even on the weekends when I attempt to take some “down” time).So whether you have a small budget or no budget at all, Buffer is at your disposal!

    LoginRadius is perhaps the only software company that first tries to steal money from its customers, provides a defective software and then threatens its customers. Our company hired their service to develop a custom software. We waiting over 2 months and paid them thousands of dollars. At the end, what we got was a buggy software that refused to register our users to LoginRadius RaaS and caused our WordPress site to crash several times. We tried to work with their support team which was completely out of sync with our requirements. When we finally gave up after 4 months of patience, their support team sends a letter threatening us! Stay away from this company! They will charge exorbitantly for a buggy software and you keep struggling for months trying to integrate it with your website.
