About edgar

Edgar is a social media scheduling tool that organizes social media updates into a categorized, searchable library for sharing and recycling if content runs out. Users can add their custom content to the Edgar library, schedule posts to social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and refresh feeds with new content as and when they choose.

With the aim of helping businesses to automate their social media posting whilst gaining a bigger audience and ensuring that content remains fresh and relevant, Edgar provides automated workflows, content queuing, categorizing, bulk upload, auto-expiring content, and more. Unlike other social media automation tools, which need to be refreshed with new content daily, Edgar posts content from a custom library automatically across platforms and reshares over time to ensure it can be seen by the largest possible audience. Edgar reuses and recycles social updates over time on a predefined schedule so that no post goes to waste and to minimize the time spent creating and refilling with new content.

The unlimited content library within Edgar allows users to upload as much custom content as desired and stores it until the auto-scheduler pulls it to be posted across platforms. Content can be uploaded and edited in bulk to create an extensive library from any source, including content from RSS feeds of other sites. Posting schedules and queues can be setup and customized to control which content is posted to which social platform and at what time, and content streams can be shuffled, paused, or resumed at any time.

Key benefits of edgar

  • Build an unlimited content library of social updates within Edgar with the ability to upload and edit content in bulk. Users can organize their content into color coded categories in order to help navigate the library.

  • Create shortened links to display within social posts through Edgars partnership with Bitly and Rebrandly, or through the Edgar link shortening tool Ed.gr. Users can add links to posts and track clicks for each link.

  • Include auto-expiring content within the schedule and setup specific start and end dates for seasonal promos, time sensitive news, and other time limited posts.

  • Streamline social posting across Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn through Edgars seamless integrations with these platforms. Control which content is posted on which platform, or synchronize unified posts across all platforms.

  • Use Edgar’s content automation feature to bring in leads and improve search engine ranking through automatically recycled posts. This ensures that no posts are wasted and they reach as many people as possible.

    I like the fact that it is definitely a female company, which is something I support. Customer service and courses/tutorials are ace, but the product is a bit difficult to get used to at first. I like that they seem to have finally enabled posting for all major social media channels.

    Pros

    What is great about MeetEdgar is the human component, really. They get back to you super fast (even if you're on a trial), and have a very active community and many many tutorials. I recently also learned one of their social media courses.

    As for the software, once you have the knack of it it has a few useful features like automatically changing titles etc. so you can reschedule old posts. We did stop using it about a year ago or so (right now the account is inactive, but stocked with loads of material). We might use it again for a new project next year.

    Cons

    It takes a while to understand how to operate the library for non technical people. I am a bit tecchie, so was able to handle it back in 2019. But i assume it is not as easy for less technical people. I found the UX back then- no idea if it has changed in the meantime- quite "dry", and little appealing. Once you have filled your library though, it is basically an evergreen, and quite useful.

    Great program, but overpriced.

    Pros

    Edgar is an amazing product provided by a company with a fun and progressive business culture. From their Octopus logo/mascot to their responsive customer service, the Edgar team makes doing business with them a pleasure. As for the product itself: if you want to use evergreen content on your social media accounts, Edgar is an excellent online database that will enable you to keep posting that content, over and over again. It's easy to set up, easy to use, easy to make adjustments to on the fly. Edgar will pull new content from your blog or website via RSS, making it easy to continually add fresh new material as well. If the price were more affordable for solopreneurs, I'd still be with them.

    Cons

    The pricing. Basically they are gearing this product to businesses that are already capitalized to the point where it makes sense to spend per month on social media management. That's great ' if you're that size. But for solopreneurs like me who have to make every dime count, it's just not good enough of a value to justify the premium price. When other solutions like Social Pilot offer very similar features at a fraction of the cost, it's hard to justify staying with the Octopus. I would strongly encourage Laura Roeder and company to come up with a tiered pricing plan so that solopreneurs, startups and even hobbyists could take advantage of Edgar (even if a "lite" version) but at a more affordable cost. Presumably, as businesses succeed, they would move into the more robust plans, so this should be a smart long-term strategy for Edgar. Anyway, I think a business just needs to carefully evaluate the value. Bottom line: great product, but is it worth it? Ultimately I decided it wasn't.

    I loved using Edgar but the main reason I got it was for the Twitter recycling. Now that Twitter started enforcing the stupid duplicate rule, the app lost a lot of value **FOR ME**. If you an create 100 different tweets for each post, then I definitely recommend using it in conjunction with the other platforms.

    Pros

    **25** social accounts is a huge number to be able to link! Forever recycling saves a huge amount of time and eliminates the need to reload once everything has been shared one time. Previews help you see exactly what your posts will look like. Unlimited number of daily/monthly posts and unlimited library.

    Cons

    Only one price point--great if you're big but horrible if you're just starting out or have a limited budget. Only 3 networks are available--IG & Pinterest have been "coming soon" for months & YT isn't being mentioned yet. Content auto generator is horrible--it literally pulls short sections from your content and can be bad for out-of-context stuff.

    I love Edgar and the functionality it provides to the user. It is unlike other social media software on the market. You can add a library of social media posts to the program and it will continue posting the content via the schedule. You can also decide for posts to only go out during specific timeframes. I love the program and will continue to use it as long as I can afford the monthly fee.

    Pros

    I love the functionality of this software. You have the ability to create categories for your social media content, schedule times for each category, add feeds from your favorite blogs, add automatic social media variations, and see history/reports. There are other benefits of using the product as well.

    Cons

    The least thing I like about the software is the price. It would be great for the pricing to be less per month, especially for those who are just beginning, or their business is not making much money per month.
