Overall, Sendible is pretty comparable with the other programs on our list. Since we’re looking for versatility and total customer ratings, we tended to see a lot of results from larger teams and corporations.
With that in mind, we do want to point out that Hootsuite, which is the lowest-performing social media optimizer on this list, does perform significantly better when it’s used by individuals and small teams than it does with larger teams and corporations.

Sendible vs Hootsuite
These two programs make for an interesting comparison.
Sendible has more features and functionality, but it can’t connect to as many different social media platforms as Hootsuite.
Hootsuite is more affordable at the lower subscription levels but significantly more expensive as you subscribe to higher levels of their service.
When it comes to the quality of the user interface, updates, and other features between the two programs, it often seems to come down to personal preference rather than actual quality differences.
Sendible offer several support levels. You can get online support through their main website. Alternatively, you can place a call to them, the US support line is (+1) 646 233 0357.
Alternatively, you can request a demo for yourself and your organization. That way you get a more in-depth look at the program and can do some troubleshooting and problem solving before you face an immediate problem.
How does Sendible work?
Sendible’s main dashboard is its priority message system. You can fully customize this feed to show only the information most important to you. From here, you can easily navigate to other tasks and information tabs. But, unlike Hootsuite and some competitors, you don’t have easy access to your other social media optimization tools on your Dashboard.
Analytics are also dynamic and easy to interpret. Looking for keywords, and other important post success information is easy and reasonably intuitive with Sendible.
It’s also easy to choose which social media outlets are going to get a post or to choose them for the purposes of analytics. While Sendible works with a smaller number of social media platforms, you can expect it’s a Facebook toolkit and other platform tools to be more in-depth as a result.
As a tool for larger social media management teams, Sendible also makes permissions and authority easy to assign. You’ll also be able to assign specific team members to tasks, responses, and anything else that needs immediate or specialized attention.
Far from the last feature, you’ll have to try the program to learn about them all, Sendible also provides detailed analytics for individual platforms.
Sendible’s pricing is roughly in line with that of its competitors. But we find that there are cheaper alternatives in the smallest subscription ranges. At a higher level, Sendible remains competitive but can be a little spendier than some similar alternatives.
Yes, Sendible does have an app. But, it’s function can be somewhat limited. On average, Sendible’s app is glitchier than the main program. It’s also more difficult to create post drafts and other essential functions in the app.
Yes. Like most of these programs, canceling a free trial, or even your main subscription is relatively simple. We don't recommend canceling until the end of your trial, however. Like other feature-rich programs, it takes a little longer using Sendible to get used to what it can do, and how to do it.
This seems to largely be a matter of opinion and preference. Sendible has neither the worst nor the best UI in the social media management apps. We don’t think that Sendible is a difficult program to use, but it’s not the easiest program either.
Overall, Sendible is a good and workable program. Its solidly consistent, and offers regular updates to it’s UI and features. While Sendible doesn’t stand out in any one respect the way some programs can, like Social Pilot’s advanced Facebook interface, it also doesn’t have the pitfalls of many programs.
If you’re looking for a good social media content manager and productivity tool for your team, don’t have any highly specialized needs, and don’t want to deal with frustrating glitches or updates, Sendible is a solid option.
