I’m seriously disappointed with the upcoming limits.
With this announcement, Hootsuite just dropped from “heroes” to “Meh, just one of dozens” in my book. From "These guys are amazing!" to "Oh, they're just in it for the money, like everybody else." I liked having you on my hero list. I suggested you to all my friends, literally thousands of people. I can’t do that any more.
Most of my friends (nor do I myself) give a rat’s hindquarters about multiple media accounts. (A couple who are moving full-time into social media have bought your expensive accounts; that's what they're for.) I'd rather NOT have multiple accounts and keep the option of just having an open queue to toss stuff in as it crosses our minds. The Analytics, Assignments, Campaigns? I glanced at them. Once. Don’t want them. I just need that queue to toss quick (140-character) thoughts into once in a while.
The jump from free to $240 a year is too much. That’s an unmanageable hurdle, not remotely possible even in my dreams. That's for pro's. I'm not a pro.
I’ve been using ToDoIst. They, like you used to, have a competent free service, and an optional paid service. Their paid service is $25 a year. I bought that one. I’d be eager to pay $25 a year for your service. But $240? You have a lot of people - I'd venture to guess ten times as many of us - that would be willing to pay $25 but can't pay $240.
I’m really sorry. I’ve loved working with you over the years. I’ll miss depending on you, counting on you. I’m sorry to see you go.
