Should I Get a Hootsuite Pro Account?

The answer to this question depends entirely on the needs of your firm. As you start to get serious about social media, you will want a platform like Hootsuite to manage all of your networks in one place. You will quickly lose track (and lose your mind) if you are managing each site individually. Here is what you get you with a free plan


  • 5 social networks

  • 2 RSS feeds

  • Analytics


This is great for a law firm that has one website, a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a LinkedIn account. You can feed your blog posts to all your social networks and track the clicks back to your site.


At Foster Web Marketing, we started with a free account and soon upgraded to the Pro plan for $6 each month. Is it worth it? For us, yes! Here is what you get with a paid account:


  • Unlimited social networks

  • Unlimited RSS feeds

  • 1 team member

  • Facebook Insights and Google Analytics integration


We have several websites in addition to, such as and, where we blog regularly, and we want to syndicate these posts to our social media sites. For us, it's worth it for the unlimited RSS feeds alone. Offsite blogs are a great way to build links to your main site.


The bottom line is that you need to be using social media to market your law firm. Hootsuite is a tool that we use ourselves and highly recommend. But remember, the most successful firms are the ones that actually implement. Whatever platform you choose, make sure you are updating your networks regularly and engaging with your fans, followers, and friends.
