Why We Love Hootsuite

Why We Love Hootsuite

At Alt Creative, we handle social media for both clients and ourselves. It can be overwhelming. That’s why we love Hootsuite! Hootsuite is a web-based social media service that allows you to schedule and monitor all of your social networks from one dashboard.
Hootsuite Features:

Multiple Networks
Save your time and your sanity. Monitor and post to multiple social networks, including Facebook and Twitter using the HootSuite dashboard.

Custom Analytics
Show off your social media success. Create custom reports from over 30 individual report modules to share with clients and colleagues. Track brand sentiment, follower growth, plus incorporate Facebook Insights and Google analytics all without leaving the dashboard.

Team Collaboration
HootSuite’s Pro and Enterprise plans allow you to have multiple contributors to your social profiles without sharing passwords. Assign messages for follow-up and track responses. From help desk to marketing, engage audiences at every level of your organization.

Schedule Messages
Ensure your messages never get missed. Draft and schedule messages to send at a time your audience is most likely to be online. And with HootSuite Pro and Enterprise plans you can batch-schedule up to 50 unique messages at one time.

Mobile Apps
HootSuite wherever you go. Get the dashboard for your iPhone/ iPad, BlackBerry or Android mobile device — free — so you can monitor and message anywhere from airports to elevators.

Automated Reports
Keep the members of your organization in the loop. Reports can be shared with any HootSuite user, not just team members, and you can schedule updates daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly so that everyone is up-to-date with campaign results.

HootSuite’s assignment functionality allows you to delegate messages to team members for follow-up so you can be sure the right member of your organization is responding to queries and comments.

Monitor Mentions
Never miss an opportunity to engage! Custom search streams allow you to monitor brand mentions, industry key words, competitor names and more.

RSS Integration
Like to feed from your blog to your HootSuite streams? It’s easy! Auto-update your profiles from your blog or news feed with RSS integration right in your HootSuite dashboard.

Custom Dashboard
The HootSuite dashboard is designed to be customized to suit your individual needs. Add custom search streams, drag and drop tabs in your preferred order from right to left, and increase or reduce the size of columns to fit more on your screen.

To suit your personality, your brand or your mood, choose the HootSuite theme that’s right for you. And change it at any time.

Secure Profile
Prevent team members from posting to corporate profiles by mistake. Enterprise-ready Secure Profiles protect your valuable corporate social profiles from errant messages. Available on both web and mobile for an additional level of control when posting messages on behalf of your brand.

Ow.ly Custom urls
Use HootSuite’s custom URL shortener to track click-thrus on links. Get individual link stats and summary stats to measure the success of your messaging.

Browser Extensions
Update your followers on the page your viewing, or simply post as you browse, directly from the address bar! The Hootlet lets you broadcast to all your social networks from your preferred browser, and the HootBar is built specifically for Firefox 4.

Message Draft
Draft messages to save for later, or keep as a template to ensure your team is writing and responding consistently.
