Having used HootSuite‘s free version since 2009, I found the features to be extremely helpful in managing 5 social media profiles (on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn); maintaining my online presence consistent by scheduling updates; and keeping my engagement level up there with rest of my mentors, like Sal Mendoza and Elianne Ramos.
HootSuite is user friendly, adaptable, and ideal for time management. For me, moving to Hootsuite Pro was a no brainer. I am a big fan, indeed! So much that I normally introduce HootSuite during my workshops as listening platform and time management tool. Small business owners have found the free version to be more than enough as they begin to use Social Media for Business Development. At some point in time, as it happened to me, you will find the need to collaborate with a team, to measure and monitor the success of your efforts. At that point, I am certain that you will find HootSuite Pro an even better tool.
