I've gotten over 300 new likes in a month utilizing the software!

Pros

I'm using your software and I LOVE it. 300 new likes the last few weeks due to consistent and easy posts across multiple social media platforms! #notsponsored

Cons

I was a little confused about how to get Instagram to publish automatically, but once it got setup its been a well oiled machine!

Loomly was the only software I could find that is desktop based, built for team reviews and calendar planning, and has auto-publishing. It's been great, but the iPhone app lacks most of the features included on the site

Pros

desktop platform that pushes to Instagram and has auto-publishing capabilities; team review workflow; alternate captions; multiple social media channels; monthly calendar; reminders; library for photos; comments -- basically everything that is included is great

Cons

lacking and instagram feed view to plan how quilt would look with the queued posts

Dear Rebecca, Thank you very much for your review. Have you taken a look at our Instagram Grid Preview feature, in the Post View? This allows you to see how your current post will look like on your profile, among the other posts already published and the ones coming up. Please let my team know if we can help you with anything. Sincerely, Thibaud, CEO of Loomly.

Loomly was a great social media management tool as soon as I started using it. The process of creating a post is so seamlessly and detailed that I could create multiple social media posts for each social platform very easily.

Pros

The software has a seamless process to work with your team to create multiple social media posts throughout the months.

Cons

The analytic part could be improved. I have used other social media management tools and the analytics provided a bit more.

Hi, Thanks a lot for your review. We would love to hear how we can make Loomly's analytics better. If you currently use Basic Analytics, maybe we could give you a tour of Advanced Analytics? And if you already use Advanced Analytics, we could definitely learn from your experience to make it better. You can reach us in the chat or over email. Sincerely, Thibaud, CEO of Loomly.

Pros

I manage 6 different social media sites, Loomly scheduling has saved me an inordinate amount of time. Their calendar feature makes it easy to see where there are gaps in my social content. I love that Loomly offers me tips and tricks for my social content.

Cons

I would like to be able to color code my calendars by subject instead of just the social channel that is being used.

Pros

The calendar view is spectacular! I can view my upcoming posts by a list or calendar view, AND I can view my different company calendars in a consolidated view! OMG! If I have a queued post that I want to be moved to a different day, just drag/drop to a new date. Easy peasy!

The analytics are amazing!! Tells me my top posts (by saves and comments) and my flops (by saves and comments) as well as metrics for each post for each of my social media accounts.

I own three businesses and manage social media for a 4th. The sharing capabilities allow me to queue posts for the managed company to review/approve as well as allow employees of the managed company to generate their own posts as needed.

Cons

The only con as of now is the IG posting is still manual. :-( It does facilitate easy posting by loading up my post to my IG account on my phone for me to review and approve, but it would be nice for it to auto post.

It has saved me a lot of time and love the fact it is cloud based.

Pros

I like having to view all of my posts in a calendar format. I also like the fact I can post the same links on different channels on different days and times. It is also useful that you can post from the calendar and see the preview of each post.

Cons

The only thing 2 things I don't like are there is no extension to add things to the calendar from Chrome. I also don't like that fact if I move a post to a different day, I have to log out to see it.

Dear Lauren, thank you so much for your review. We do have a Chrome extension in the works (in the meantime, one solution is to save links to your Loomly Library as Notes). Would you mind send me an email at thibaud@loomly.com so that our engineering team can investigate the flow you describe related to moving a post to another day? Sincerely, Thibaud Clement, CEO of Loomly.

I have 3 clients who all use the tool to approve messaging and collaborate with me managing there entire online presence. It works really, really well. What else is there to know.

Pros

Simple, easy, and designed for the work I do. Not as online salesman like all the others. I manage 5 different small businesses social media. what I need is not to be able to spam people with unless sh** but to craft valuable engaging content and deliver it to hard earned audiences. Love the builder, love the client collaboration, love the calendar, LOVE the library. and most of all I love the way they are constantly developing and innovating, that for me is infinitely more important then any specific feature.

Cons

It's new and run by what feels like a very small team. This isn't a block buster summer movie but a tiny little cult classic. Loved deeply by some but not enough. The design is a little rough, the functionality a little finicky. I heard that initially it was designed by a husband for his wife.

I truly love it, we orginally statrted out with a trial, because we were using Hootsuite, but I found the loomly is easier to use and we liek the lauout and system better for our comapnyt.

Pros

This is such a user-friendly website to use for all of my social media platforms. I love the way it is laid out because it is very easy to navigate and use. We really enjoy using it for our company and all of out social media posting

Cons

I wish it was easier to get instangram set up with out the additional buffer app, since we do not use that. So once instagram can connect automatically it will be perfect for our use.

Pros

As a solo public relations practitioner who used another scheduler for close to 10 years, I am in love with Loomly! It has absolutely changed the social media game for me. I manage social media for multiple clients as well as some personal projects and love being able to see what everything will look like before posts are published. Being able to collaborate with clients on posts using the comments and approval system has removed a lot of clutter from my email inbox. The Loomly team is constantly making improvements and customer service has been top notch!

Cons

Manual publishing to Instagram can be a hassle when timing of posts is critical. In ability to see Instagram tags in the editing process.

This software has been an incredible timesaver for me. I love being able to sit down at the beginning of the week and schedule my social media posts I also love the feature that allows you to invite collaborators if you work with other businesses. The pricing is very competitive with other similar platforms.

Pros

I love the ease of scheduling my social media posts, the grid view for instagram is helpful designing a cohesive feed. With Buffer everything posts automatically.

Cons

I would love to see a wordpress plugin to push out blog posts.

After many years of using a different management tool for my social media it is refreshing and has actually inspired me to do more again with our social media. I also teach strategic social media management for our training company and have changed my recommendation to our learners!

Pros

The best feature for me is the ability to create a master message however personalise it to each individual platform and ensure that it is optimised for each platform I am using! for example there are different requirements for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest however I am able to quickly and simply ensure each message is 100% perfect for the targeted audience on that platform.

Cons

I love the desktop version however I would like to see more development of the mobile app to enable me to fully utilise the features of Loomly when on the move.
I would also like to be able to manage more than one group/page for each platform in the same calendar. For example we have several company Facebook pages and groups and it would be helpful to post at the same time to them rather than duplicate the post to another calendar.

Dear Elizabeth, thank you very much for your review. I hear you about our mobile app and I can let you in a little secret: we are in the process of build a brand-new version. As far as managing multiple accounts from the same platform in one calendar, this is something we are working on: in the meantime, the Master Calendar feature will help you manage multiple accounts through multiple calendars and see all your posts in one shared view. Please feel free to reach out to our support team in the chat or over email if we can assist you with this or anything else. Sincerely, Thibaud ¿ CEO of Loomly.

So far, so good! I'm really happy with it and am enjoying the freedom from scheduling anxiety!

Pros

I really like how simple Loomly is to use, and I love the fact that I can see my posts spread out on a calendar. I tag my posts with things like 'blog post', 'news', etc too so that I can get a good idea of how diverse my content is. I also like the post preview function - in fact it's the reason I went with Loomly over competitors. It stops me having to worry about how things look when I draft content, and it saves me time checking it all afterwards. Customer service is second to none.

Cons

It's a shame that their cheapest plan doesn't include better analytics. Nothing too fancy needed, but it would be good to have something other than 'Likes' and 'Retweets'. The next level up plan isn't too expensive, but it has a lot of features I'd not use as a solo, so it's not worth the extra dollars really.
