Best social media scheduling tool

SocialBee is a great social media scheduling tool. It supports all leading networks like Facebook (pages and groups), LinkedIn (Profiles and pages), Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram to schedule and monitor content. Automated content recycling is another feature. It can re-publish content on connected profiles indefinite times.

Pros

SocialBee is my favorite tool for social media marketing. It helps me to automatically publish content on social sites at a scheduled time. The content can be organized across different categories so as to locate them easily at a later time. It also offers Twitter management feature to find new potential followers and detect unfollowers easily.

Cons

They don't have a built-in Pinterest integration. But we can schedule content on Pinterest through Hootsuite. I contacted SocialBee support and they told me that it will directly connect to Pinterest very soon.

Reasons for choosing SocialBee

SocialBee is affordable and offers more features like content categories, Twitter management, recycling, etc.

Saves me hours a week

It is a very great company who are working hard to stay on top of new features that are coming out. I think compared to some SMS (Social media schedulers), this one is at the top of the list!

Pros

This is one that I got a lifetime deal from AppSumo for $49. It had been offered on AppSumo once before, and the reviews said it was one of the best apps they had offered. It has lots of bells and whistles, and just like Recurpost its dashboard is content based. It is also great in that it has an extension browser, links to pocket to save and schedule articles you find in i.e. Firefox. For other schedulers like Buffer, and Hootsuite:Socialbee can post and autoschedule to all social media platforms, which was a big win for me. It also allows you to save hashtags, and use RSS feeds. And look at competition for twitter only. For the AppSumo lifetime deal, It is for the Pro version. So if I were a social media manager, I could run 5 different workspaces from this. As I do not, it is a little wasted. You can also have 25 profiles from any of the platforms, which is crazy. I do think it is important to have unlimited content categories, AND a high number of posts per category, so you can set it and forget it. Now that I’ve used it for 6 months, I give it an 8/10. Only because the analytics aren’t for all platforms, and you need integrations for Pintrest and Instagram.

Cons

What I least like about this softward is the analytics aren’t for all platforms, and you need integrations for Pintrest and Instagram. I also have struggled with the socialbee link shortners. Now that I have spent hours plugging in content, I was very disappointed to see 20% of the links do not work. When I contacted them they were very quick in getting back to me, but said there was nothing they could do on their end. So I would suggest using other link shorteners, and stay away from their own one.

Reasons for choosing SocialBee

The layout is better with SocialBee, with categories as the focus. Buffer doesn't use content categories for its layout, which is why it wasn't for me.

Reasons for switching to SocialBee

At the time, Appsumo was offering lifetime deals on both Publer and SocialBee. This was my second favorite SMS however, and I would suggest it, as it does also use Categories as its dashboard.

Could be amazing but needs some fixes

Even though it is a great program, there are major flaws they need to figure out.

Pros

What I love about socialbee is it has content categories. Many other schedulers don't categorize by content. Through the years there are more integrations and collaborations happening with it. Of course it is web-based which has its own pros and cons. I like the fact that you can start a post in bulk and then customize for each social media platform.

Cons

When I go to write a post, once I have put a photo on, the link, as well as the tags then the whole program slows down like we are back in the 90s on dial up. This means to fully complete one post it can take up to 45 minutes, even on a fast computer. This has put me off using it almost completely and demotivates me from keeping my posts new.

Great tool for Automated social media posting!

Love Social Bee for making a bunch of posts before hand and having them automatically sent out to all my platforms. It really works with all the platforms I need and gives me a good amount of accounts I can use at one time.

Pros

I love that it posts to social media automatically and I can make a lot of different posts and stagger them. I can also have it auto post from an integration with Pocket to show my audience interesting articles and other websites. I got it on an appsumo deal so I have an account and never have to pay monthly!

Cons

Setting up pinterest is kind of a pain in the butt as they don't have their own integration you have to use hootsuite free account and integrate through that. Though it works well when you get it set up. Also having to re-connect integrations can be a pain in the butt, though this is from the social media platform side not a social bee issue.

Reasons for choosing SocialBee

Like I said before I got it as a lifetime deal from Appsumo. I do have to use a free hootsuite account to integrate with pinterest, but there is no reason to use hootsuite other than that now.

Reasons for switching to SocialBee

I got Social Bee on a lifetime deal with more features than hootsuite so it was a no brainer!

Thank you so much for your review, Josh! Much appreciated.

A powerful, to-be-polished product

It's a solid, reliable tool, despite the fact they have got many things to improve yet. There are so many social media management tools, that you might feel overwhelmed. But if you need advanced configuration, take a look at SocialBee.

Pros

I appreciate all the features focused on content management and schedule organization. With SocialBee, any kind of content plan should be doable. You decide what, when, where, how often, and how many times is going to be published. With all additional tools, it's a handy tool for social media managers, marketers, and entrepreneurs. And, what should not be forgotten, it's constantly growing!

Cons

The interface sometimes is too confusing. It's easy to get lost among all tabs and features and forget where to go to find the right place. I also don't like how often the SocialBee wants me to try their Concierge program, which I don't need.

Reasons for switching to SocialBee

SocialBee was on the lifetime deal sale, so I took the opportunity. Buffer is less configurable than SocialBee and doesn't have the content library.

Response from SocialBee

Thank you for your review! We appreciate it.
