"A great solution for rotating content to boost social media results"

What do you like best?

I've used Edgar and am a huge fan. It's the best solution that I've found to date that allows you to recirculate web content and easily add new content. You'd be surprised how valuable it is to republish past articles and information from your website to drive more traffic. It's user-friendly and a great asset.

What do you dislike?

It is a little pricey and I can't tag other social media businesses and it doesn't integrate with Instagram. Adding the ability to tag other businesses within the workspace would be ideal. However, the workaround is that I just edit the post after it goes live - so not the end of the world.

"Shockingly, startlingly awesome"

What do you like best?

I'm 3-4x as effective in 1/4 the time. I used to be perpetually wracked by this feeling of 'uh oh' whenever I had been away from Twitter and Facebook for more than a half-hour or so. Now, I use those platforms to do the fun, network-y stuff that's enjoyable, and Edgar handles all of the ugh-type posting (inspirational quotes in pretty frames, links to articles along with a pull quote and image, evergreen brand-building posts) that used to occupy most of my Twitter and Facebook time.

Like everybody, I've been frustrated by rapidly-diminishing reach on social media. Edgar is the perfect solution to a lot of my woes, allowing me to gain followers, spark engagement and build the brand even while I'm not actively working (even while I'm actively sleeping).

I feel like I'm gushing, but the number of times that I've signed up for a platform/service and been overwhelmed with the value, efficacy and customer service after significant usage is 1. If you're wondering what that feels like, it's great. I recommend it.

What do you dislike?

I strongly dislike that Edgar only works with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. If Edgar worked with Instagram, Pinterest, Goodreads, Spotify, Reddit, Snapchat and Messenger like it did with the current triumvirate, I would be beside myself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pull the trigger. You'll love the people you work with/speak to, the platform is better than advertised and the UI/UX is like a warm, blue dream.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Edgar is elegant. The content library/queue system allows me to automate background-level activity on social media (using Edgar's Chrome extension, I can take an article I'm reading and turn it into an evergreen, thought-leader type post with link & image in 3-4 seconds) without getting in the way of organic usage, networking, etc.

I would argue that Edgar is underpriced (or a great value, at least), given what it does, and that's allow me to spend 2-3 hours a week loading new/fresh content into Edgar's library/content queue, which then means that Facebook (Groups and Pages, both), Twitter and LinkedIn are all operating even when I'm not at a computer, blasting out links to good content (including mine), images I made and optimized in Canva, etc.

I do the kind of posting I don't care for (inspirational quotes, pull-quotes from good articles with proper hashtags, etc) in one block a week, and then the rest of my time on, say, Twitter is spent looking for and interacting with interesting content and users. I never have that nagging, guilty feeling of 'I haven't tweeted in _____ mins/hours,' because all of my work-related accounts are consistently blasting out good content, using a schedule I created.

It feels like cheating, it's so awesome and effective and intuitive. BUT, given what I've seen and heard, MeetEdgar's folks are among the most committed to not going afoul of TOSs, and they are SUPER communicative. I had the Support folks tweet at me on my personal account to answer a question I'd emailed them a few days prior bc they noticed I had not opened the mass email that answered that very question. Helpful and pleasant, always. I love them.

"Going in the right direction but still not there"

What do you like best?

Edgar's interface is nice and beautiful, I love the post preview and the rotating libraries

What do you dislike?

I don't like that I can't just "stop" a calendar. If i need to stop my posts i will need to erase the calendar. This is very annoying if Im thinking about stopping my posts for a couple of days but I want to go back to my calendar later.

I also think it is very expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Edgar is great if you have a big budget but if you're struggling with budget I better recommend Recur Post.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Edgar helps me liberating time. Before I would have to manually post every entry into my social media but now I can just schedule everything at the beginning of each month.

"A Godsend for your Evergreen Content"

What do you like best?

Edgar is built for evergreen content publishing. You will be able to keep a library of your best content, put them into separate categories, and assign time slots for them to be automatically re-shared in the future. Random content can also be assigned to time slots, and you can even decide which categories will be included in random!

What do you dislike?

Currently Edgar does not support multiple images in a single post. Photos are also shrunk to a more mobile-friendly resolution. As a photography-centric company, we would love to be able to show our photos in a bigger size.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Edgar works best if you already have a good number of (or plan on keep adding more) evergreen content to avoid too much repetition. You wouldn't want to bombard your audience with the exact same content over and over again. This will of course be dependent on the frequency of your schedule as well as how refined your categories are.

In terms of the networks supported, Edgar currently works for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, but it doesn't seem like they will be adding more networks in the near future. So if you're looking for evergreen content sharing for Pinterest, Instagram, G+, or Snapchat, etc, you might be out of luck. (At the time I don't think service or products exist for these networks, though)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you're a social media manager, you would know that the organic reach is ever-dwindling, and how important it is to re-use your evergreen content so more of your fans will be able to see your popular or effective content. We used to manually re-post content via Buffer, but it turned out to be a very time-consuming task and the content-management is cumbersome and inefficient.

Then came Edgar. By setting up a schedule to share our evergreen content automatically, we saved a lot of time and can get back to the most important task: create more quality content.

"Edgar Is A Great Way to Save Time on Twitter"

What do you like best?

I used to spend hours every week scheduling individual tweets on Crowdbooster. As a nonprofit with an international focus, it's important to post to Twitter around the clock, but it can be time consuming and difficult to keep track of how often we push different CTAs to different timezone audiences. MeetEdgar has made a huge difference in the amount of time I can spend writing tweets instead of scheduling them, and being more mindful about what CTAs different timezone audiences are seeing.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was easier to schedule a post at a specific time when necessary (rather than schedule a category). The feature is available, but it's a bit clunky and I can't see what I've scheduled in the "schedule" tab which seems a little crazy. I also wish that I could upload multiple images or a video, though I'm not sure if Twitter's API allows for it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great scheduling tool for Twitter that has saved me loads of time, and it's very affordable (and offers nonprofit discounts). It's worth noting it's not an analytics tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am saving an incredible amount of time by creating a library a scheduling categories from that library, instead of having to schedule specific posts. It's revolutionized the amount of time I can spend dedicating to social media strategy instead of content creation.

"Great Time Saver!"

What do you like best?

I am new to handling our firm's social media activity and branding. When I first began I found it tedious and time consuming to post on different social media sites until I found Edgar. I couldn't believe how user friendly it was and for me that's huge. With Edgar I didn't have to be computer or social media savvy to use it. I like the ability to create categories and follow other sites to add content to my feed and then schedule everything at one time. This was by far the biggest win for me, not having to go to each social site I wanted to post content on, Edgar did it for me. I can't say how happy I am to have found Edgar and my boss is happy also.

What do you dislike?

Not a dislike necessarily but often, I like to schedule items that I don't want to categorize as a once only item and trying to work with the calendar portion is a bit tedious. It's doable and manageable but I like the idea of being able to schedule items once in their specific category to keep track of that particular post topic.

The other thing I wish for - not a dislike - is having the ability to add the "Queue" to my outlook calendar. That would be really nice, since I do other marketing and track it on my calendar, not having to sign into Edgar or manually add it to my outlook would be nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend giving it a try. We started with a free trial and never looked back.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem is "time management". Using Edgar has saved a considerable amount of time. I used to spend a few days on social media marketing and now I work on it once a week and I'm done.
