    Pros: 

    Having categories and the ability to pre-schedule time slots for our content calendar helped reduce the time spent on scheduling.

    Cons: 

    Some features are still coming.

    The solution SmarterQueue provided to create evergreen posts and categorizing with time slots was life saving for my team and I. I'm able to focus on the content and copywriting for the posts rather than thinking of when to schedule it all.

    Pros: 

    This is the perfect combination of set-it-and-forget-it ease and powerful analytics and content discovery.

    Cons: 

    Can't wait for even more functionality that is on the roadmap, but not yet baked in.

    I've used a number of social media schedulers in the past, and this is hands-down the most useful for the price. The nicest thing to me is how responsive the development team is to customer feedback; it's baked into everything they do, and it shows with the transparent product roadmap that is always kept updated (and an always updated board that allows customers to upvote features they would use.) The co-creation aspect has made the product exceptionally powerful for even the most entry level price point, and the flexible pricing allows one to focus on what they need most from the tool rather than one-size-fits-all.

    Pros: 

    Categories and content recycling keep my posts varied and interesting!

    Cons: 

    No real cons - many features that I haven't had time to try / implement yet

    I was a customer of SmarterQueue before I joined the team as a developer.

    I tried Hootsuite and Buffer before, but neither was as nice to use or as powerful as SmarterQueue. I didn't really need a social media management tool for my Facebook group, but when I read my friend's review of SmarterQueue, I just knew I had to try it.

    Pros: 

    Evergreen content, categories, posting plan, RSS feeds, multiple platforms, great interface. See the gaps in schedule, browser extension

    Cons: 

    Instagram isn't auto posting (yet)

    I've tried most all of the top schedulers and came back to SmarterQueue. I run three businesses so it helps me to organise my content, make sure I am posting to all of my profiles, easily see gaps in the schedule and keep my best stuff on repeat. It is one of the essentials of my business tool box.

    Pros: 

    Awesome content recycyling and variations. Great analytics. Easy to find content to share or migrate content. Always adding features.

    Cons: 

    Emojis for variations doesn't include search and favourites. Can't add hashtags or emojis as a variation set or extra text snippets.

    I have been using SmarterQueue since they were in Beta and have written about it numerous times on my blog. I love what they have built and I moved over to using them from Edgar early on because I was frustrated with Edgars pricing vs the features they didn't develop. I like that SmarterQueue has added variations and I am playing with them currently (which helps to comply with Twitter's repeat content rules).

    However what I would love to see is even more control over variations so we can create even more of them at once. If you could insert more than one text snippet type + a category for hashtags + a caetgory for emojis then that, combined with the current option for text + images will give you infinite combinations! I hope that this can come soon as I can still see that I will have to spend a bit of time checking them and changing them once they hit a repeat in the cycle. Emojis and hashtags would give me way more scope! But so far it's a great tool and I am sure it will continue to improve. Well worth ditching Edgar and going with this tool - you'll be able to achieve more and have more $$$ in your pocket.

    Pros: 

    multiple scheduling queues, alternate text for retweets, built-in graphics

    Cons: 

    I can't think of any.

    I've been using SQ for over a year now to manage the social media accounts for two companies. It is simple and intuitive, yet has so many features. It is everything I had been looking for in a social planning/posting platform.

    Pros: 

    Easy interface, useful posting features, incredibly flexible pricing, best Pinterest posting ever. I LOVE THIS APP

    Cons: 

    Had to wait for Pinterest capability but now it's here...so no real cons.

    I just love this platform and the people behind it. They respond, the fix stuff if you ask, and the platform is super powerful. I love it already, but then when I passed the number of queued posts for the pricing plan I was on I was blown away when they let me individually change limits within the pricing plan for small increments in price rather than having to jump to a higher plan with other limits I didn't need so high. Simple things like that make this better than all the others.

  • Pros: 

    I tell everyone about SmarterQueue. It has the best features and the best price!

    Cons: 

    Haven't found any yet

    I love this service. I recommend it highly and often, because after using several other services, I've found no others to compare with their price, features, and reports. You need this!

  • Pros: 

    Visual platform, step by step setup, color coded, customizable to individual needs

    Cons: 

    Learning curve to set up (though they walk you through it); Hoping for auto-post to IG soon, too.

    Love Smarterqueue! Great platform to schedule content for marketing material. Love that you can easily integrate multiple sites (Facebook, Instagram) and even post to multiple business pages as well. Great resource!

    Pros: 

    No longer overwhelmed by social media

    Cons: 

    Can't think of any at the moment

    As a blogger, I was feeling overwhelmed by keeping up with regularly posting and promoting content to followers on Twitter, Facebook, etc. SmarterQueue has enabled me to put these platforms on autopilot without sacrificing quality. I tested several of their competitors, including AgoraPulse, Hootsuite, and Revive Old Post, and SmarterQueue was the only one that had all the features I wanted/needed, an intuitive user experience, and as a bonus it was one of the cheapest options, so it's affordable even for a blogger just starting out (which I very much appreciated)! I've been using SmarterQueue for about 6 months now with no plans to stop.

    Pros: 

    Recycling posts, great price, easy to use

    Cons: 

    Would love to be able to add pins faster

    I've been using SmarterQueue for a while and love that it's easy to set up and use, plus they always seem to be adding new features and keeping on top of making all of their users happy. It's my favorite scheduling tool that I've tried!

  • Pros: 

    Fabulous platform! I've been using it for most of this year. Repost, queue, put on autopilot once set up, what's not to like

    Cons: 

    I'm not aware of any.

    I tried Hootsuite and Buffer and my last one was MeetEdgar, an expensive option and while it was cute it just didn't meet my needs. Then I found SmarterQueue. It's easy, visual, logical, and it works. Set up is a breeze and support are responsive. Social media has become so much easier as a result and way more effective.

    Pros: 

    Awesome developers, excellent support, keeps evergreen content recycling

    Cons: 

    Learning curve

    This is all I use to schedule for social media. I switched from a competitor after Twitter changed some rules and the competitor had no idea what to do. SQ had a valid, rule-following solution within a day or two. I feel like the people behind it really know what they're doing. Support is quick and helpful. They keep adding new features.

    Pros: 

    easy to use, great time saver

    Cons: 

    reporting could be better

    Very useful tool to create a calendar of content across multiple social channels, quickly and easily. Saves a lot of time every week. Could do with some more tagging functionality to make posts more viral/shareable, but that's a small point.

    great product, recommended.

    Pros: 

    Calendar view, auto-recycling, copy and image variations, content curation, categories and just all round awesomeness!

    Cons: 

    Cost, maybe. Nothing else really for me

    I switched to SQ over a year ago and couldn't be without it now. It's saved me hours and hours in scheduling and is so easy to make sure I get a good mix of content. It prompts when things run low and now that seasonal categories and copy/image variations are possible, it answers every single one of my needs.

  • Pros: 

    Easy re-cycles my best content, easy posting interface, handles files and uploads well.

    Cons: 

    Not automatic posting to IG. Categories and how they work on the posting plan to me a while to get used to.

    It's so good to see my socials alive and well every day. Get ready for some hard setup work (partic if you have only limited graphics, ideas and marketing resources) - but SQ looks after my socials admirably. Txs Team

    Pros: 

    Categories to help spread similar eg "self-promotion" or "blog" content out. Posting same copy with different images. Easy to use.

    Cons: 

    Can't give clients access to see the content I've made for them, because they would then have access to all other clients accounts.

    Honestly love this scheduling tool; use it everyday for all my different clients and recommend it regularly.

    Pros: 

    Content Recycling

    Cons:

    Tried all the big names but based on the features this one looks really good one! I don't want to use more tools for content recycling anymore.
