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.

    GroSocial Use Cases and Deployment ScopeGroSocial was being used to manage our clients' social media accounts, primarily Facebook.  We used it to build posts, create and change timeline covers, build promotions and contests, and integrate those with our clients' Infusionsoft application.  The contests/promotions integrate into Infusionsoft Campaign Builder, to provide a cohesive lead generation mechanism across all platforms. We also used it to build Twitter backgrounds that matched the Facebook look and feel for the client. We built individual tabs as well for our clients for things such as newsletter sign ups, or other promotions, that integrated directly with Infusionsoft.
