    Lately I have been using buffer and hootsuite to schedule & manage my different social media accounts. I received an email about using sprout social, it looks cool but is it better? Buffer and Hootsuite are free and do everything I need, however if it offers me some more beneficial features I wouldn't mind paying the extra fee or if anyone has a system that would be a better alternative to all 3 that would be nice as well.

    Hey there! Sarah from Sprout Social here. Wanted to chime in and give a little insight. We're a bit more robust than Hootsuite or Buffer in terms of features and functionality (eg: analytics, CRM, Reader integration). We are a bit different in regards to the social inbox. Users add the social profiles they manage, as well as any keywords around the brand and mentions and comments come in our single stream Smart Inbox.

    We offer a free 30 day trial to check out the platform to see if it's a good fit for your workflow. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter at sprout_sarah with any follow up questions!

    I never had to look beyound Buffer, so I think it's up to you - do you need the extra services they're offering and are you willing to pay?
