Negative

  • Metricool's system only provides 1 account for each platform per brand, and therefore clients having 2 or 3 accounts on social platforms consume more than 1 brand’s position, making it expensive.
  • White labeling is only available on Metricool's most expensive plan and also requires further discussion with the Metricool team.
  • Metricool lacks the ability to save preset hashtags, which would allow automatic addition to scheduled posts.
  • LinkedIn is excluded from Metricool's free plan and requires a paid subscription to access its features.
  • Metricool has a hashtag tracker, but getting it costs extra 9.99 euros.
  • Reporting templates are exclusive to team plans and above in Metricool, and users with free plans can’t download or see these reports.
  • Metricool's social media Inbox and color-coded "best time to post" view are great features. One can quickly see when their audience is most engaged, saving time and maximizing engagement.
