I am looking for my small business the best social media scheduler and respond tool to monitor and plan our social media strategy. I like Buffer but they do not offer a way to respond and monitor comments as other tools.
- You can get it done through Zoho Social. They are perfect for small and growing businesses. Sprout Social is an agency tool. You can use them for the trial period of 14 days. They are great, but too expensive for small businesses. You can also try Hootsuite.
- As far as scheduling is concerned, we use CoSchedule at our company, and everyone's super satisfied with it. When it comes to monitoring, we use our very own product at https://brand24.com. While it won't let you respond to comments from within the dashboard, it's only one click for you to find yourself in the exact place where the original comment appeared and from there on it's only up to you how you engage such mentions.
