Highly recommend, best valued tool on the market.

Overall I have tried a half dozen alternatives to find the right one. when it came to price vs functionality and overall user experience this ticked my boxes. It's very clean and user friendly, I had some questions more than issues to start with and I was very impressed by the rapid and professional support from the chat team. Price plan customisation was great, a feature I'd not seen really on any other options unless you were looking to really get into the high corporate use areas.

Pros

It ticks all the boxes for a clean UI, with every feature I need and a very customisable pricing plan.

Cons

I think there are some features, and I love that they are taking and allowing users to vote on those suggestions but they are all additional at this stage like TikTok integration. Nice to have but not deal breakers for the majority.

Reasons for Choosing Publer

Each of the alternatives had it's pros and cons. SocialQ was a one time purchase but had an unwieldy UI especially in calendar view. OneUp was a close contender but had a higher cost to features ratio. Buffer was far too expensive for my needs and didn't offer anything more than the others for a dramatically higher price while later looked excellent but didn't support LinkedIn which is my primary use for this type of tool.

Reasons for Switching to Publer

Very simply Hoosuite increased prices and reduced the functionality of free account sot not be worth my time.

Love Publer!! Couldn’t live without it!

They are a great company who have continually invested in their product for the sake of their users. They listen to feedback, they CARE and they’re not greedy like the more established schedulers.

Pros

User experience is great, dashboards and analytics are excellent. Flexibility to add all the social channels you need, with auto recycle and shuffle. Just excellent features.

Cons

Creating / uploading content en masse could be slightly easier but it’s not a huge undertaking once you get the hang of it.

Reasons for Choosing Publer

They were already established at the clients stack

Still missing key features, but good scheduling tool

I like it, it's still a growing platform and I'll continue to use it to supplement my main social media management tool. I'd recommend it to small business owners, but for agencies it misses the mark.

Pros

I was able to get a lifetime subscription of Publer which made the transition to the platform almost a no-brainer. The dashboard is simple and easy to navigate, it's simply a scheduling tool with no unneeded bells or whistles which is great.

Cons

You can group your social media accounts by company or by whatever you wish, but when scheduling posts, it automatically will select all accounts within the Group. This isn't ideal for those wanting to only publish a message to a specific platform as you then have to go down the list and uncheck the accounts you don't want to post to. The entire account list is still visible so if you have a lot of accounts connected, you have to scroll through all of your accounts to uncheck the ones that were selected within the Group.

Hi Beverley and thank you for your review. Grouping the accounts is designed specifically for this reason: to allow you to select them all, in click of a button, when scheduling your posts. Grouping the accounts is optional and you can always decided to select the accounts you want to post to one by one. We will try to make it more user friendly when you have plenty of accounts. For now, you can always double check where you're posting to by placing the mouse over the social network icons inside the composer. Thank you again,

A powerfull challenger to Hootsuite and Agorapulse

I use Publer every day to schedule social medias content posting on 8 different channels For one specific project i scheduled one year of Instagram !

Pros

Almost no learning curve. Price is fair (i got it as a lifetime on AppSumo in 2020 but even the regular plan is offered at a fair price) They add new features every month ! The most recent ones : smart automatic schedules for each channel, post recycling (ever green), auto share, auto comment, bulk import from CSV+Dropbox UI is clear and simple with good performances and no latency Support team is good, and skilled, always answering in one hour. Publer is whitelisted by Instagram and have access to Instagram API

Cons

Publers lacks some channels compared to competitors such as Tiktok, Instagram Stories, Whatsapp groups, Telegram groups, Slack , Google My Business ... But I'm sure these are on their roadmap.

Reasons for Switching to Publer

too expensive, UI too heavy , too many features which are useless to me. I needed something more simple

Publer to the rescue

Publer has brought me back into social media and to enjoy the process. Scheduling has been a breeze, managing multiple accounts is easier and I don't have to worry about consistency since everything has been seemlessly synced.

Pros

Aside from the sleek and modern dashboard, the interface is extremely easy to navigate, and intuitive. I'm clear on what accounts to post to, what accounts are in specific groups, and where to find them. However, THE MOST impressive feature on Publer is its innovative "Link In Bio" page. It's certainly ground breaking, a genius concept, and functions the way it needs to. Very impressed.

Cons

In the beginning, I wasn't sure how the "Link In Bio" worked and I wasn't convinced I needed it. But it wasn't until I watched the demo video, read the tutorials, and tested it that I was sold :)

Reasons for Switching to Publer

Hootsuite is too clunky and big, Publer is a much more cleaner and sleek dashboard
