    I went past the free trial to the paid version. It allows you to link multiple social media accounts. Really great tool to have for a little money

    Pros

    Very user-friendly, great pricing, must have for sharing on multiple social media pages.

    Cons

    The free version only allows you to have three social media accounts. Kind of difficult posting on Instagram

    Pros

    The platform works very well and it's definitely tailored for all team sizes. The data featured in the app is extremely useful and easy to follow and comprehend. Social pilot is an essential tool for managing the reach of your company and how well you are connecting with your target audience. From here you can work to improve where needed. It's very easy to digest.

    Cons

    Although they offer different plans, the pricing can be a bit challenging to put up with for smaller teams. Also the apps can be a bit slow and the user interface could use some improvement, as it's not as intuitive as it should be.

    I can manage the social media accounts of 25 real estate agents, and with bulk scheduling, get months of posts lined up in a day. Great value, and they offer an intro training session for free, which was mostly helpful.

    Pros

    The groups feature is huge, allowing me to post to a specific group of 20 or so accounts, but leaving a different set of 10 accounts off the post. The bulk upload works. They could make a sample template that is a bit more explanatory. The pricing, should it remain unchanged, rocks. I don't understand the greed at a few of their competitors. Pretty good analytics too.

    Cons

    Instagram HAS opened their API to 3rd party companies such as later.com for automated scheduling and POSTING of Instagram posts. It is unfortunate that SP has not gotten this functionality yet. Perhaps my biggest gripe, is a missing feature: I should be able to post an article to 10 different accounts on the spot, using SHARE NOW, and have those posts get sent 2-3 minutes apart to avoid FB bots seeing a bulk posting occurring. One of their competitors offers this feature, so it can be done. They don't see the need for it at SP. This forces me to move posts around on the calendar, and with 30 accounts on a calendar that you can't zoom in on, it is a headache! I'd also like to see video posting enabled as a bulk post feature...

    Pros

    Even though it's a separate software, by focusing exclusively on social media you get all of the benefits out of that. I love it and never have to worry about glitches/feel like I have to check if something posted or not.

    Cons

    Analytics feature could be better and I wish I could integrate schedule and analytics into an outside CRM system

    A multi-client multi-account social media dashboard with great analytics and a few quirks

    Value for Money

    The multiple client dashboard feature is affordable compared with other solutions, and this one has LinkedIn analytics. That almost makes it a unicorn in the forest.

    Pros

    I looked forever for a social media management tool that would give me a wider range of accounts than other dashboards, with great analytics, and the ability to handle each client's accounts as part of a "group" of accounts. Social Pilot meets all these criteria.

    Cons

    The need to create the client account groupings has to happen for every person who uses the software. The administrator can't just create the groups and go. Also, it's almost a default to log endlessly repeating posts on all platforms. I'd like a better preview function that shows how to optimize each post for each platform. You really have to play with it for a while to figure out all the quirks. I'd say the free trial isn't quite long enough.

    I think its main edge over its competitors is the cheaper price:

    Cons

    We choose to try its free trial because of its Instagram integration but noticed that you can't publish the post right on the dashboard. You need to confirm it from your phone which can be a hassle.

    I have used SocialPilot for Email Marketing and Running Social Campaigns for my previous organizations and It always gave a good ROI. I'll recommend to all social media marketing professionals to always try SocialPilot before making any decision for social media marketing applications.

    Cons

    As of i am really not sure if it has any cons but it is on the expensive side. Always go for free trial and then make decision whether it will be good for your company or not.

    Pros

    It has several small features that will make your life easier. For example, if you want to post on Twitter about an interesting blog post, simply copy the URL in the are for the message and SocialPilot will automatically retrieve any photo or diagram used in the blog post for you to include in your tweet. How cool is that?

    Cons

    If you use social networks a lot, you probably noticed that some socials use many hashtags (e.g. Instagram) and some do not (e.g. Facebook). Unfortunately, if you use SocialPilot to schedule your post, there is no way to tell the system, please remove the hashtags before you post on a social network that does not use hashtags (e.g. Facebook).

    Pros

    I started with this company when they were brand new and waited through some of the growing pains for new features to come. This is a great option if looking for a less expensive option than some of its competitors.

    Pros:
    -Schedule posts for your social media accounts
    -Easily work with a team on assigning tasks and getting things posted
    - Ability to have a pool of ready made posts and allow Social Pilot to church what to post according to your schedule
    - Less expensive than some competitors

    Cons

    This being a somewhat newer company to the game, some of there features feel like they are lacking or aren't a well polished as some of its competitors like Hootsuite. It is a little clumsy to try and post something other than text, pictures, or video. And even posting those feels a little clumsy.

    Very easy to repurpose digital assets across all social media platforms. The curated content section is a great benefit. This software saves a lot of valuable time by allowing scheduling of posts.

    I don't have anything really bad to say about the software. Instagram can be a little difficult at times but other than that it is well worth the money.

    Helped to reduce the time I needed to put towards running social media, allowing me to focus on other projects and hence - saving money!

    Pros

    I got the year long subscription and use this for about 6 months before switching. My Social media manager used it very well to post to all my accounts. I enjoyed a lot of the bulk uploading and scheduling.

    Cons

    IN the end I ended up getting a better deal with another Social media manager that made me swap. If I did not get that better deal I would have stayed with them.

    Hi Miguel, Thanks for your wonderful review on SocialPilot. Glad to know you like SocialPilot! We are in communication with the Facebook team about giving us access to Direct Instagram Posting. We need to have the partnership to do that, there's a procedure to follow, so as soon as it's done, we'll get Instagram posting at SocialPilot. About commenting on a Team-members post we'll surely add this to our suggestions list. Also, I see that you are not very much happy with the customer support. Did you face any problem? I would like to amend of what difficulties you faced, please let me know! Best Regards, Jimit

    Detailed analytics that are insightful and easy to understand. So that's my favorite feature by far!

    Pros

    I've been using Social Pilot for a few weeks now (after using Hootsuite for years), and I gotta say that I'm impressed! What I like most are their ANALYTICS - by far. They save me a lot of time, they're detailed, and the reports are easy for me and my clients to read and understand. Their browser extension tool is also helpful too!

    Cons

    My least favorite thing about Social Pilot is that you're not able to tag businesses/handles when scheduling posts. So I don't schedule posts through them very often. However.... when I contacted their support team, I was notified that they're working on this and plan to have that changed soon! So when that happens, you'll be good to go.

    Hi Kristyn, Thanks for an amazing review on SocialPilot. Really glad to know you find SocialPilot a great tool to use. We are always on the run to make SocialPilot a better tool to use each day, and comments like these gives us a boost to get better each day. About tagging people on Facebook, Kristyn this feature will now not be available on any third party tool, as Facebook has made certain changes in their API policy recently and we unfortunately had to stop working on this feature as we didn't have access anymore. But we are soon going to release some features which will interest you. Best Regards, Jimit

    SocialPilot is very straightforward, no frills in sight. It connects to all the major social media platforms and let's you share a post to several profiles/pages while still being able to customise the content for each channel. You can either add content to an automated schedule or you can define the time and day manually. It also makes it easy to post content several times over a longer period of time.

    Cons

    The user interface could be more intuitive, the most often used features are not always easy to get to.
