Hoosuite, is it worthwhile?

13 replies
Greetings to everyone!

I've done some research online and I deduce it's Hootsuite which is the most popular SMM tool, am I right? The question at hand is when exactly is this tool a must?

Is it when you've got like a whole lot of different accounts to manage? I've spent some time using the service, but my experience wasn't a good one, 'cause it works very slow. And I've only put just a few accounts there. I'm a great PC multitasker and like running a number of applications at the same time. With Hootsuite everything's just way too slow.

So can anyone enlighten me on the real value of the tool please?

And perhaps, someone could advise me on a locally installed (rather than web-based) piece of software that could perform the same functions but at a higher speed?

Thank you and happy Friday to everyone!

    Hmmm, I used Hootsuite a few years ago but quickly replaced it with MarketMeSuite, which I am still using to this day and am really happy about. It's an amazing piece of software that is getting better and better every week or so.

      I actually think they are offering it for free at the moment, so definitely do yourself a favor and check it out.

      Best of luck!

        Thanks, Alex. MarketMeSuite works much faster than Hootsuite! Starting to like it.

    Hi Zack,

    HootSuite is really fantastic. I'm a social editor and have to manage several clients social media at once. Instead of spending time in front of the computer, with HootSuite I can schedule each clients tweets etc. to go out at a set time. So I can be down the driving range whacking golf balls to Timbuktu whilst HootSuite has got my job covered at home.

    Love Hootsuite. I don't use it for business purposes, but love it for personal use.

    Plus, it shows the right timeline when I want to look at Facebook.

    Also, the scheduling feature is really cool.

    Hootsuite is an excellent listening tool.

    The scheduler and stats are nice too, but remember that facebook posts don't always show up in the feed, so you could lose a potential traffic source.

    I use hootsuite to engage on twitter and keep "tuned in" to facebook and linked in.

    If you've got multiple twitter accounts for broadcasting - this tool is a good choice (with their premium version.)

      I've tried 5-6 SMM tools and services and at this point HootSuite beats them all. The one small gripe I have with HS is that there no direct WordPress (self Hosted) compatibility, though they are said to be working on something

    Is there anyone on the forum who also utilizes MarketMeSuite?

    AlexSid, the reply campaigns won't work for some reason
