Sea for yourself

Here’s how the Pod feels when they’re using HeyOrca to manage their social media.

“We were able to onboard all of our clients easily and all clients were impressed. Compared to other social media content scheduling and review tools I've used (Sprout Social, Agorapulse, Hootsuite) HeyOrca is by far my favorite.”

Social Media Manager

“HeyOrca has quite literally been a lifesaver. As an agency with 20+ clients, we needed a platform that would effectively manage clients across platforms. Creator Studio wasn't cutting it for our larger clients who required crossposting to Linkedin, Google My Business, etc.”

Social Media Strategist

“My team and I love the approval process and ability to schedule ahead by making draft posts. When we just used Meta Creator Studio to schedule Facebook content, it was more difficult to have 4 team members in there, we couldn't do drafts or approvals, etc.”

Digital Engagement Officer

“My team loves HeyOrca because of the way it allows us to collaborate on content, without us needing to use spreadsheets, and shared documents. Also, HeyOrca's customer service is outstanding.”

Business Owner

“HeyOrca plans charge based on Calendars instead of users, so I like the ability for us to scale our team as needed. It's clear to the clients and gives our team more flexibility. HeyOrca is a great tool for agencies.”

“Before HeyOrca we tried Hootsuite, Buffer, publishing natively, and piecing together specific tools for each social platform. In the first month, HeyOrca saved my team approximately 60 hours and more than $4,000.”
