43 replies
Hey Guys,

What is a good free/cheap social media management suite I can use for:
-Twitter
-FaceBook Page
-Google Plus
-LinkedIn
-Maybe Pintrest

I don't know if this has been asked before, I did a quick search for it and lots fo people recommended HootSuite - so I checked that out and it only allows G+ pages, not profiles =/

    I have only used Hootsuite so can't compare to any others. I recommend hootsuite though, makes it very easy to manage Facebook, twitter and linkedin. Like you mentioned you can only add G+ pages but they may adjust this as well as add other networks in the future.

    As previously noted Hootsuite is the standard, but you should also have a look at Tweetdeck. It's a pretty good FREE alternative.

    Onlywire - expensive but has most networks
    Hootsuite - less expensive has most networks
    Sendible - very affordable has 14 networks
    Weontech - affordable I believe has most networks

    They each have different rates of submissions allowed per month and different networks integrated so make sure to contact them all.

    For sourcing great content to post to these accounts, HootSuite falls flat. The best I've found out there is ZootRock Curated Tweets To Build Content & Engagement

    All the platform are good for gaining traffic to your website. If you have the sale/purchase business then i think pinterst is good. You can show your product image. This looks nice. Mostly girls are more liking pinterst.

You can get a one time purchase for unlimited use or the Elite monthly for only $8 to manage unlimited numbers of profiles if you are a social media manager and need to manage multiple clients. Google Plus is being added as we speak and will be updated shortly.

          Pretty broad and reckless statement, don't you think? If Hootsuite wasn't doing the job folks wouldn't stick with 'em just because they are big and spend a lot of money. From my experience they pretty much do what they advertise. Not saying others aren't just as good or better, just saying people stick with Hootsuite for a reason.

    Does HootSuite allow you to manage let's say 3 different social media profiles for 5 different companies all separately under one dashboard?

    For example, company 1's FB, Twitter and Google+. Company 2's FB, Twitter and Google+. Company 3's FB, Twitter and Google+, etc. All under my main account dashboard? Or would I need 3 different HootSuite accounts?

    If you’re thinking about adopting a social media management tool, there are several questions you should be asking yourself and your team.Using a social media management platform is a commitment and an investment in terms of both your time and your bank account, so picking the right one the first time is ideal. So i would like to suggest you to try:
    Crowdbooster is a social analytics platform that looks at your tweets and Facebook posts and offers suggestions for when to post, who to interact with, and what your audience cares about. The main thing that is free for one twitter account and one facebook account.

    Hootsuite or Buffer. I would be wary though as there's a temptation to post the same content across various networks when in reality, you probably need to treat each network as a separate channel.

    Hootsuite and Buffer app is something which are widely used.

    My Personal feeling is you cannot use the same content or communication in all social media platforms, simple reason being each platform is different in its own way, for example in FB an informal language works well where as in Linkedin is need to be very formal, and when it comes to twitter, it need to be very short and precise.

    Social media is in itself a good option for driving traffic and promoting your brand or product.
    Hootsuite is a multitasking platform for it.

    Facebook page is good and cheap source for promoting your resources through social media management. As, Facebook is the good traffic driving site in which many folks are active in it.

    It depends upon the user that which social media sites they are using for their brands or resources, some are using Hootsuite and some are using Facebook, these all media has it's own unique features.
