    My overall experience with Loomly has been amazing. I switched from Buffer and haven't looked back!

    Pros

    I have used almost every social media management platform under the sun and Loomly is by far my favorite. When I started my own business I had a robust checklist of items I needed in a platform and Loomly fit 95% of those. Some of the features I love include:
    A schedule of upcoming holidays and important dates
    Advanced scheduling features like being able to move a post from one date to the next using the calendar feature. You would be surprised how many platforms don't offer this.
    The ability to schedule one post across platforms and edit the content for that specific platform. This to me is HUGE.
    The support - the support is amazing, I always receive relevant, friendly responses in a timely manner.
    The collaborators feature. My client love being able to log in and approve posts. It's simple and easy for them.
    The Library- I love being able to store ideas for later, saves a lot of time!

    These are just a few of the amazing tools Loomly offers.

    Cons

    Loomly doesn't offer direct posting to Instagram although I know it's in the works.

    My overall experience with Loomly has been positive. It's helped us save a TON of time when it comes to organizing social media posts. We wouldn't be able to keep up with the constant social media posting if it wasn't for Loomly!

    Pros

    Loomly helps us create and organize all of our social media posts in one easy-to-use calendar. We can schedule Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, and more social posts in the Loomly platform. I love the calendar view, where we can easily see all of our social posts in one section. I also love that you can drag-and-drop to quickly reschedule certain posts, making it very easy to organize and plan out our calendar. The auto-posting function is great, where it automatically publishes your posts to your social media accounts, saving us time and energy. There is also a great approval system where you can submit your posts for review if another coworker in your company would like to review them first before publishing.

    Cons

    I don't love that Loomly doesn't integrate with Instagram. Loomly can automatically publish your social posts to Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin, but it doesn't connect to Instagram. You have to go through another 3rd party website called Zapier which costs money and is a little complicated to set up (it's also very glitchy in our experience). So we still have to manually publish our Instagram posts each day.

    Response from Loomly

    Dear Sarah, Thank you very much for your review, this is truly appreciated. I am glad to read that Loomly keeps on being useful for your team. I sincerely hear you regarding Instagram and we keep on doing everything we can to bring automated publishing to you as soon as feasible. Please let us know if we can help with anything else. Sincerely, Thibaud, CEO of Loomly

    Loomly is simple, reliable, and inexpensive. I'd definitely recommend it.

    Pros

    This tool is functional, easy to learn, and very inexpensive. If you're new to social media scheduling or looking for something basic, this is the way to go. I'm impressed that they don't charge tons of extra fees for having multiple accounts on there, making this tool ideal for a freelancer.

    Cons

    It's not easy to switch to a calendar function like it is on competitors' tools.

    My experience with Loomly is very poor. Forget about contacting customer support because there is none. If you do get a hold of someone, it is the same canned responses or no responses. I've had my analytics disappear numerous times without any way of getting them back, except going through the original social app's insights. Keep in mind that will not work with Instagram. Those will never be recovered. Yearly plans cannot be refunded (see fine print) if they're not holding up their end of the agreement. Probably the worst overall experience with a social posting app.

    Pros

    -Visual calendar to see current and upcoming posts
    -Multi-team use, can control who has specific access but that requires more money
    -Library to keep all assets in with information

    Cons

    -Nothing to run ads through; FB allows to drop a pin in which you want to run ads-this app cannot do that type of heavy lifting.
    -Loomly ends up deleting analytics at any moment. Make sure you write them down or print before they're lost, but this is the reason you're paying for more, right?
    -Does not post to Instagram nor YouTube. Must manual post everything for those sites
    -Any third parties they use for posting, they change it every year. So you need to register with those companies to get anything posted to Instagram.
    -Don't rely on any help from the platform. No customer service or support to speak of. Often times you're ignored or allowed to try and figure out their platform issues. In the end, it's not convenient to use.

    Response from Loomly

    Dear Tara,
    Thanks for your review.
    I'm sorry to read that your experience was not satisfactory.
    My team will reach out to learn more about what happened.
    Until then I'm addressing your concerns through Capterra:
    Loomly does support Facebook & Instagram Ads. You are correct that tagging products is not available yet.
    Loomly does not delete analytics data, even after you cancel your subscription. Only exception: LinkedIn no longer allows storing data that is older than a year.
    Native publishing to Instagram is expected to be available this year. For now, publishing to Instagram is available through Zapier. Loomly used to be integrated with another service, which unilaterally discontinued the integration with short notice.
    Native publishing to YouTube is already available.
    We offer support 7 days a week with a 30-minutes average response time.
    Again, I am sorry about your experience and my team will be in touch soon.
    Sincerely,
    Thibaud Clement, CEO of Loomly

    It has really saved me a ton of time and reduced my stress levels by helping me stay off social media.

    Pros

    The feature that really sold me was that I can schedule posts ahead of time, and it was cheaper than the other apps and programs I looked at.

    Cons

    I can't schedule multiple photos/photo carousels for later posting, this has to be done manually but they do send you an alert to post.

    Cheaper and I loved it after about two days of the free trial.
