Ups and Downs of Hootsuite

In today’s blog, I will be reviewing one of the most used and popular social media management platforms.

HootSuite was founded by CEO Ryan Holmes, Dario Meli and David Tedman in 2008. Fast forward it to 2017 and it now has over 15 MILLION users! But what makes it so popular? Here are the pros.

Pros:

Allows scheduling for Instagram,

Not many social media management platforms allow scheduling to Instagram, not to say HootSuite are the only ones to allow this but they are one of the few which certainly attracts these business’

 

Account management,

 

Now sometimes the layout to these platforms can be difficult

to figure out for most, HootSuite allows you to see all your accounts all on the page, making it easier for you to navigate from one account to another.

Ups and Downs of Hootsuite

Cons:

Money,

 

Although the Pro plan costs just £9.99 per month, Just by adding more than one team member increases the price, And adding a second team member doubles the price, to almost £20 per month.

 

Analytics,

One big part of a business thriving is constantly checking statistics to see how well the company is doing because that way you have a very good understanding of where the company is at.

Conclusion:

In conclusion, depending on your budget and the number of accounts you are handling HootSuite can be just for you, But if you aren’t handling many accounts and your budget is really low then you may want to reconsider.
