Can Anyone Recommend an Alternative to Hootsuite?

If you can take a moment from your Thanksgiving preparations, I have a favor to ask of you.

Can you recommend an alternative to Hootsuite?

For those not familiar with the service, Hootsuite lets you manage multiple social media accounts on several networks, all from a single dashboard. You can schedule posts, check the effectiveness of past messages, etc.

It’s quite popular, but I have had to stop using it because I am dissatisfied with its performance and with Hootsuite’s customer service (whose job is not so much help customers as mollify them).

So I need a replacement for Hootsuite.

What do you use? Which one do you think is the best?

    Not sure if it has all the features you need, but maybe take a look at Buffer?

      I will, thanks!

    I’d recommend using Agorapulse.
    You can monitors ads, set up monitored searches and the reports are awesome (no extra charges for them).

      thanks! That is new to me!

    Buffer. I have never looked back.

      This makes five votes for Buffer and one each for everything else. I think i found my next social media manager.

    I use Buffer and haven’t had many problems. They have a sister site called evergreen that re-posts whatever you tell it to indefinitely so you don’t have to keep re-schedueling.

    1. Nate Hoffelder23 November, 2017

      Nice, but Evergreen alone costs as much as Buffer. Definitely a service i want, just not that much.

      But thanks for the tip!

    Statusbrew. Like hootsuite but can auto-recycle content. And the basic package is free.

    1. Nate Hoffelder23 November, 2017

      Thanks! I’ll take a look!

    I’m casting one more vote for Buffer. Love it. And when I’ve needed it, their customer service has been great

    Postcron. Have been using it for at least a year now and love it way more than Hootsuite.

    1. Nate Hoffelder24 November, 2017

      Thanks! I’ll add it to the list!

    I’ve been using Meet Edgar. Works for me.
