Benefits of Hootsuite

Hootsuite content calendar scheduler is organized, easy, and beautiful.

Hootsuite content calendar scheduler is organized, easy, and beautiful.

Here’s what you get for free:

  • Manage and schedule content for up to 3 social media account profiles. For example, your pet store’s Instagram, Facebook Page, and Twitter account would be 3 profiles. The free plan is limited to 30 scheduled posts - but if your calendar is planned and you have your content ready, that means that in just an hour or two, you could schedule content for weeks in advance and then forget about it!

  • 2 RSS feed integrations, to automatically find relevant and compelling content from trustworthy sources that can be shared to your account pages with just a few clicks.

  • $100 of boosted content. They aren’t giving you $100! Too bad. It just means that you can boost posts with a budget of up to $100 per month through the Hootsuite platform.

  • Access to the online help center with several free courses on social media.

  • Insightful and simple social analytics that let you know what’s working and what isn’t and give you a rundown of the health of your pet store’s social media profiles.
