Three Reasons Why I Love HootSuite Pro

HootSuite Pro – The 3 Reasons I Love It

I’d like to thank Lisa for thinking about me for this post. I’ve been going on about HootSuite Pro for some time now and you’ll soon find out why. Enjoy the read!

Throughout my first year of blogging I was introduced to tons of online tools I “just had to have.” But out of all the tools I’ve seen and been using the one that has helped me keep it together has been HootSuite Pro. Allow me to explain.

Being a work-from-home mom is a split shift between running a home and running a business. It’s a 24-hour 7-day a week job so there has to be a balance. And while I’m reading the latest on a new tool I always ask myself, can I use this while I’m on the go?

I think Lisa summed it up best in her post called The Race To Post, Comment and Share To Success in which see talks about making time to accomplish all of our “things to do” as a blogger.

We all know we have to be consistent posting new and informative content. But in order to maintain traffic and make connections we have to take time to read other blogs, comment, and share.

And how to do I that when I’m sitting in the parking lot waiting for my kids to get out of school or practice?

Enter HootSuite      

I had been seeing HootSuite all over the place it was THE platform to access your social media accounts in one place. You would think that should have been good enough for me to sign up but I was okay with having multiple windows open and accessing each social media account separately. That is until it started getting busy.

I Love Me Some HootSuite!

I signed up for the free version of HootSuite. Imagine my surprise when I learn there’s much more to it than just accessing social media accounts. The free version includes adding up to 5 social media accounts, access to an analytics report, message scheduling, and up to 2 RSS feeds.

I finally found a tool that can help me save time and for a work-from-home mom on the go that is just about the best gift I can get. I didn’t hesitate to go Pro and here are the three reasons why I love it.

  1. You can add as many social media accounts as you’d like.  This allows me to see my Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and G+ accounts without opening multiple windows. I can reply quicker to friends and colleagues.
  2. Unlimited RSS Feeds. This feature is awesome! Now I won’t miss any new posts from my favorite bloggers and I can share the posts at the same time.
  3. Message Scheduling is an awesome feature for those who are always on the go. Let’s say you have an appointment in the morning but you want to share your post. You can schedule a day and time for your messages to post to your social media accounts. It keeps traffic going to your blog even while you’re away.

But Wait, There’s More

There are some other cool features as well. I’ve recently learned, wait for it…that there’s an app for HootSuite for those of us who use a mobile phone to conduct business and they launched a new feature called HootSuite Conversations that lets us talk to team members or end users in real time.

Awesome tool, huh?

To HootSuite or HootSuite Pro

If you’re still using the free version and haven’t decided on upgrading, like my friend Adrienne says in one of her posts, what the heck are you waiting for? If you’re looking for something to help you save time, this is it.

There’s even a free 30-day trial. I know you’ll love it as much as I do. By the way, I am an affiliate, so if you do decide to purchase using one of these links, I will get commission for it. But trust me folks, I wouldn’t promote something I wasn’t using myself or I thought was a questionable product. HootSuite Pro is the real deal.

Looks like I’ve gone on and one about HootSuite Pro haven’t I. So what’s holding you back from going with Hootsuite Pro? Maybe we can talk about any questions you might have. Not that I’m an expert, but I do love solving problems. Fill in the comments section below and let’s talk.

    I love the part about the RSS feed. I love to have all the people that I follow in one place instead of missing emails or missing a comment on twitter. i like to see down and read different articles in the morning and I sometime miss things because they are coming for a lot of different sources. I am going to try it and see how it works for me.

    Hi Corina! Great seeing you here! I’m a Hootsuitr user who hasn’t gone Pro…. Yet. Can you add your G+ profile to it or just a G+ page? With being able to add unlimited RSS feeds and the fact my beloved Google Reader is soon to be gone, this just may make me go Pro!

    Fab choice in guests Lisa! :wink:

      Hi Brenda,

      I had a great time writing this post…the words came easily because it’s just that great of a product.

      It currently links our Google+ page and it’s does that with Facebook as well.

      I know you’ll love the RSS feature, its the main reason why I went Pro :) Take advantage of the 30 day free trial. If I remember correctly (been about 3 months) you don’t need to give credit card information only after you decide to keep it. I know folks who are particular about that so I’d thought I’d share that :).

      Thanks for stopping by! Happy Friday!

        I use Hootsuite on my phone as well. Do you know if the Pro phone app allows that RSS feed too? So far I keep both twitters, both facebook pages, and my personal facebook page in Hootsuite, that’s why I was asking about the personal G+ because I don’t have a “page”.

          When I tried configuring my G+ page it wouldn’t let me because it’s Corina Ramos and not WFHConcepts. I created WFHConcepts G+ page and it took. I have to using Corina Ramos and use that page instead.

          I’ve only had the App for a couple weeks but I can’t find the RSS feed. I looked under settings tab and didn’t find anything. I do plan on contacting them for help, I might be missing it.. I’ll let you know what I find :)

      The Feeds seem to be the selling point, I know it was for me :)

      It’s funny because I feel I was the last one to jump on the Hoot Suite bandwagon and now here I am hooping and hollering about ‘em :)

      I hope you give it a try. I love that we have 30 days to try it. A week, even two weeks isn’t enough time to get a feel for all it can do.

      Have a great Friday Lisa, thanks again!

    Hi Corina, and welcome to Lisa’s blog – what a pleasant surprise to see you here today :)

    Well, honestly speaking, I am very new to Hootsuite as yet as I was earlier using MarketMeSuite, which is quite similar to it. But because they changed a few things that didn’t suit me, I switched over to Hootsuite and love it. So far, it’s not given me any kind of problem at all.

    I still need to explore all the other possibilities you just mentioned and they all sound great. I guess I need to sit over the weekend and give it a real look. :)

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice weekend, both of you :)

    Hi Harleena and thanks for the welcome :)

    It only took me a month before deciding to upgrade to Pro. It’s very user friendly, which I love and then there are the other features that I mentioned.

    The good thing is Hoot Suite offers thirty days to use try their product so it gives us time to become familiar with the tool.

    Thanks for taking time to post a comment, have a wonderful day :)

  • I love HootSuite Pro, too, Corina. :-) I tried it for the 30-days free trial, and fell in techy love with it. The pro version isn’t in the budget right now, but when it is, I will sign up. It’s one of those tools that pays for itself with efficiency. Have a great weekend. :-)

    I just got on Hootsuite a few weeks ago and so far I love it. It has taken so much off of me. Normally I would be pulling my hair out handling 2 twitter accounts but now its a breeze and I can breathe just a tad bit. I am thinking about going pro my hand keeps hovering but I will stick with the free for now.

    Having the ability to add unlimited RSS feeds is what I like about Hootsuite pro the most. I have a bunch of blogs on different niches and this feature comes in quite handy. Not just that, I can also give my followers a mixture of great content by adding the feeds of the good quality blogs I regularly read.

    Thanks for the great review!

    says:

    Hey there Cori! Great to see you here at Lisa’s place and going on about a program you’re in love with. I love that!

    Okay, so I don’t use Hootsuite and I’ll tell you why.

    I’ve tried them both out and I’m still in love with TweetDeck. Although they don’t have as many features as Hootsuite, I don’t use a lot of those features.

    What I don’t like about Hootsuite or the updated version of TweetDeck for that matter is that they don’t show you the people RTing your RTs. Like for instance let’s say I tweet something and then you see it and want to RT that as well. In your stream it won’t show up so I can’t thank you for doing that. Not unless the Pro has that feature and they’ve left that out of the free version.

    I do like the RSS feature though and I have a feeling I’m going to have to pay for that service down the road since I can’t find one to replace Feedburner yet.

    I also only have one account and I don’t want to view all my other programs from that service because when you reply it’s showing that it came from a third party app. I know, I’m weird like that but those are the things I don’t like about these services but I do love my TweetDeck and I use both versions. The old and the new. I know, I told you I’m weird but I know a lot of people love Hootsuite and it’s a good program. It’s just not for me.

    Now thank you for that quote girl! I do tell it like it is don’t I! So for those who are needing what Hootsuite Pro has to offer I say what the heck are you waiting for! Go for it. lol…

    Great post Cori and Lisa did a good job inviting you over. You ladies together are a powerful pair!

    You girls have a good weekend now okay!

      I completely understand where you’re coming from about Tweet Deck Adrienne. Like the saying goes, why fix what’s not broken, right? I’m sure I’m gonna hold on tight to Hoot Suite when the next thing comes along :)

      I can’t remember if I had this feature when I had the free version but we can see our Twitter mentions tab and let’s us see who’s RT’d , shared tweets or any mentions.

      I love the RSS feed feature that’s the one thing that got my attention and pushed me to upgrade :)

      I’m so glad you stopped by and shared your thoughts and just being mentioned in the same sentence with Lisa is awesome for me, I was over the moon when she approached me about this post :)

      Have a great weekend Adrienne! :)

    Great review Corina!! I’ve been using Hootsuite for a number of years but have never gone Pro :-)

    I knew that you could add other people’s RSS Feeds and that hoot suite would tweet those other people’s posts out whenever they published a new post, but I didn’t know that you could follow other blogger’s RSS Feeds on there as well.

    While I do use Hootsuite to postdate posts every now and then, I do find BUFFER to be quicker and easier for both tweeting my posts as well as other people’s posts.

    Have a great weekend my friend!!

    Hi Corina,

    I have been using the Hootsuite free version for a while now. The nice thing about it in my opinion is that it provides really decent features that are enough to get most people started. More than I originally thought it had. Then, when you grow and need a little more you can go pro. I wish I would have started using it a little sooner than what I did.

    Great article Corina. I was using HootSuite for a while, and I really liked it. But, I wanted some whitelabled reports for my clients, and HootSuited offered the reports, but it was really expensive. I had to pay for each client, and then, I started testing SproutSocial, and that was the tool I needed. I am not saying that it was better than HootSuite, but the reports were better and the pricing for the reports was cheaper :)

    OH Finally…. I’ve been to your place and your puppy said you were out for a lunch with Lisa :roll: Now I see. It’s about guest posting :D lol…

    HootSuite is one of my favs ;) I’ve been using HootSuite more than ever lately and all my blog related Social Media accounts managed by it now Corina.

    Actually I’m a very satisfied user with HootSuite free version. If I need to manage my personal accounts from one place and enable scheduling for Google+ profile (I hope eventually it will be added to FREE version :D), I’ll go for PRO. Yet I’m happy with FREE version though :) But I’m thinking… Let’s see…

    Did you try third party apps on HootSuite Corina? :) WordPress users has some cool stuff there. Even available in FREE version :)

    Anyway I’d like if HootSuite mobile app get more features as I’ve got same kind of queries about it like Brenda mentioned here.

    Hey Lisa, Are you using PRO too? :)

    Thanks for the informative post about HootSuite and nice to see you on Lisa’s place dear :)

        Hi Lisa,

        The thing about third-party apps like HootSuite is that, unlike the official apps, they take time to embrace new changes dear :) Usually they have to wait until the official app rolls out new feature.

        For example if Facebook app rolls out a new feature, Facebook will offer developer access to third party developers later on :) So they have to wait for it.Do you want to comment as page on the pages you mentioned in Lisa? Unfortunately HootSuite doesn’t let you explore through other pages as I remember. It only shows the Facebook feed in mobile app, no? :) Not sure in PRO though. Hopefully they will come with that feature.

        Right now, I think the best for pages is Facebook Page Manager Lisa. Did you try that one? :)

    I’ve tried the free version of Hootsuite but never really got on with it. I don’t really like the look of it or the interface.

    I know lots of people who love it though so you’ve given them food for though to upgrade to the Pro version.

    For now, I’m using Tweetdeck for Twitter and looking for an alternative to cover all of my social media accounts.

  • Saanvi says:

    Well written for the most part, but with a few errors I feel are due to not using HootSuite. I am an avid user and consider both of these products to be leaders. I’d tend to give HootSuite the edge. I am just looking at the options/pricing and all you did was mention 1 of the 3 HootSuite products. There is a free, pro, and Enterprise. It appears you just analyzed Pro. Does Sprout Social have a free product? Also, HootSuite does have an RSS reader option. Just wanted to give a users perspective.

    And while you were reading and noticing my mistakes, which I thank you for pointing out by the way, I wish you would have seen where I did mention the RSS feeds, it’s was got me to upgrade to Pro in the first place. :)

    I’ve never heard about Sprout Social so I can’t tell you if they have a free product or not :)

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    Hi Corina – great review! I just use the free version of Hootsuite, but don’t really make full use of that – I mainly use the hootlet for sharing posts. I’ve never totally got to grips with how to use the Hootsuite dashboard properly, so I still tend to check and respond to notifications on the main social media sites.

    Thanks for reminding me that I should spend a bit of time figuring out how to make better use of this great tool. I don’t think I want to invest in the Pro version for now, but might reconsider that in future.

      I completely understand about making investments Sue. I don’t have a big budget…okay I don’t have a budget :) so I have to be careful with my expenses too.

      I started out using the free version too and I was good with it but when I found out about the unlimited RSS feeds I had to get it. I had to do away with some stuff but it’s been worth it so far :)

      Sorry for the late reply Sue but I’m so glad you stopped by and shared your thoughts with us. Hope all has been great :)!

    Corina – Nice to see you here with this awesome post.

    I have been using hootsuite free version for quite some time, and I should say that I am quite happy with the way it is. Though from what you have explained, the Pro version might make life a little bit more easier :-)

    Maybe one day :-)

      It’s so nice to meet you too Praveen and what a first impression I make replying late to your comment, huh?

      I started out with the free version too and I was liking it a lot. I was sold on the unlimited RSS feeds :)

      The Pro version has made my work life a lot easier and it’s helping me keep an active online presence even on those crazy days :)

      I’m so glad you liked the post Praveen. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I hope you have had a great week!

    Great post, Corina!! I am not using hoot suite and I actually just started using tweet deck. Maybe I need to take a closer look at hoot suite before I get too familiar with tweet deck! :) There are so many helpful tools that it’s hard to know where to start, but a recommendation from a friend always carries a lot of weight!

      Hi Shannon,

      First let me apologize for the late reply :oops:

      Ah yes, I have heard great things about Tweet Deck since sharing this post. I’ll have to take a peek at it because it is grabbing my interest. Not that I’d leave my Pro, I’m just curious to see what all the hub-bub is about LOL :)

      You’re certainly right about all the options we have. I’m hesitant to try a product too without looking around for review or like you said if a friend of anyone I associate with online is using it. We can never be too careful, right?

      Thanks so much for stopping by and taking time to drop me a line :). I hope you’ve had a great week!

    I really like Hootsuite but haven’t had the need to go pro yet as I am not on that many social media sites – I couldn’t handle it all!

    Just a tip for those who are looking for an easy place to read rss feeds and being able to share them easily on social media – try out feedly. It’s great and has a much nicer interface for reading than Hootsuite.
