6 Reasons Why SmarterQueue Is The Best Hootsuite Alternative

SmarterQueue is the smartest all-in-one social media management tool for savvy marketers. Automate scheduling to your favorite social platforms, bulk-import from blogs and social feeds, and get weekly reports full of useful insights; SmarterQueue has it all.


Streamline Your Scheduling With Smart Automation

Getting the perfect content balance is easy with SmarterQueue. Unlike with Hootsuite, you don't have to keep track of your social media schedule yourself and schedule each post manually. 

Easily organize your content into Categories and set up your recurring Posting Plan, to choose when you want to post each type of content every week. Then each time you add a post to any of your Categories, SmarterQueue will send it right to the Queue and take it from there. 💪 

And sure, you can absolutely schedule key posts manually, to one or more specific times, or even create recurring posts that repeat on the exact cycle you choose, whether it's once every 4 days, once every 2 weeks, or every year on your favorite Holiday. 

Think of the Smart Queueing system as a spare pair of hands working alongside you to maintain your ideal content mix.


Boost Engagement With Content Recycling

Normally, less than 5% of your audience will see your posts, and only if they're online soon after you post them, so  make sure every post gets seen, not wasted. ♻

SmarterQueue lets you automatically recycle your Evergreen posts, at the frequency you choose, until the date you select: giving you up to 10x more reach. We even offer Twitter-compliant post recycling, in line with their rules and guidelines around Spam. 

Gone are the days of manually re-scheduling your blog posts every week. Simply fill your Queue with evergreen content, and your posts will be recycled for as long as you want, so it never runs out.

And that's not all. You can use Variations to post different text and images each time it gets recycled. 

This doesn't just allow you to  keep your Evergreen content fresh and unique, but also gives you the chance to A/B test image and text options and see what your audience responds to!

Plus, SmarterQueue retains a copy of every post forever. You can store seasonal posts, or resurrect old content with just one click.
