6 Reasons Why SmarterQueue Is The Best Hootsuite Alternative
Streamline Your Scheduling with Smart Automation
Getting the perfect content balance is easy with SmarterQueue; unlike with Hootsuite, where you have to keep track of your social media schedule yourself and schedule each post manually. All your content is organised in Categories, and you have a weekly Posting Plan which lets you choose what kind of content you want to post, and when. SmarterQueue then automatically posts your content based on your chosen times, creating a balanced content plan, without all the planning. Of course, you can still schedule key posts manually; 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
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. You can use our Variations feature to switch up the image and text each time a post gets recycled, which not only keeps your content fresh, but also lets you A/B test your posts. Plus, SmarterQueue retains a copy of every post forever. You can store seasonal posts, or resurrect old content with just one click.
Discover the Best-Performing Content
Easily find recent, relevant, and inspiring new content that is proven to get engagement, using our content discovery tools, image search, and smart filters. Search as usual, then sort your results by likes, shares, or comments received to let SmarterQueue help you quickly discover the most engaging posts to share. Save time sharing from your most reliable sources with favourites and bulk-importing.
In-Depth Analytics For Data-Driven Decisions
SmarterQueue reports are easy to understand, and full of actionable insights.
Compare performance between Categories and post types, see the most effective times to post, and benchmark your performance against competitors.
Great Prices, Custom Plans, and Room to Grow
Hootsuite's prices have kept rising for years, and now start at $49 USD, whereas SmarterQueue plans start from $24.99 USD, making SmarterQueue the most affordable alternative - without any compromises on features (in fact, you get way more). SmarterQueue's plans can also be customised to your exact needs, so you only pay for what you use, and you'll have room to grow as your business grows.

I had to stay on top of my 'automated' Hootsuite queue with a spreadsheet; it was very time consuming! I honestly had a ton of stress lifted off my shoulders when I found SmarterQueue. Now I want to grow my evergreen content as much as possible.Maren Malmo
I used to spend about 20-30 minutes every day crafting posts and struggling with the user-unfriendly Hootsuite interface. Now, I check the Queue about once a week but am posting numerous times a day. I'm seeing greater engagement with a lot less effort.Courtney Hunt
