Buffer vs Hootsuite | Who Is The Best Social Media Manager?

http://selfmadesuccess.com – Buffer vs Hootsuite… Who is the best social media manager overall when it comes to posting, scheduling, organizing, sharing, and analyzing your social media activity? Watch the video to find out.

While Buffer and Hootsuite both offer a lot of social media accounts for management, Hootsuite has the edge with additions like Linkedin Groups, Foursquare, WordPress, Soundcloud, Youtube, Instagram and much more.

For most businesses, the next level up from the free account will be perfect for the daily social media management you need. For this level, Buffer and Hootsuite are tied at $10/month pricing. After that, for bigger companies, Buffer has more options and Hootsuite doesn’t list the price for its big plan. For big business, Buffer probably wins, but for small, it’s a tie.

Usability tends to be an opinion as to what works best for you, but as far as I’m concerned they’re both great. Both dashboards are very simple to use, but if I had to pick one that is better, it would be Hootsuite. Hootsuite looks better, flows better, and has more options. I love the setup of the Hootsuite back office… Watch to see the entire breakdown.

You were 100% ON POINT with your opinion about “Hootsuite” using their logo on all your posts… Great presentation!

Wow this was great! Thank you

Debra Kahn says:

Very informative. I’d already come to the conclusion that I probably want to use both Hootsuite and Buffer for my social media management business. Your video confirmed this, and also clarified how these services can complement each other. Right now I log into a separate Hootsuite account for each client. That’s tedious, and will become more tedious as I grow my business. I’m wondering…do you know if I could use a free Hootsuite for several clients — each with several social media sites? Then I could upgrade to an awesome plan on Buffer and keep Hootsuite free…would that work with several clients?

What are your thoughts on eClincher? That’s what I’m using right now. I’ve recently decided to subscribe, but I’m still looking for opinions. Right now I feel it’s a great tool with an awesome pricing. However I don’t seem to get many reviews on it. Hope to hear back from you!

Allison george says:

Hey @Justin Bryant, very informative video but I’m disagree on your both suggested tools. I prefer third one tool social champ not Buffer or Hootsuite. Social champ has very impressive feature more interesting is recycling post which helps me in gaining more generic traffic , also it has team feature so i can share my account with other team member so that they can easily manage my social accounts I recommend you to try it must you can feel difference on your self !
