We gotta admit: we love HootSuite. Like millions of other social media professionals, we depend on it every day to communicate with colleagues, meet new customers and stay on top of current events.
Besides offering a great social CRM platform, we’ve learned that HootSuite is a great group of people to work with. They understand that most business owners, sales reps and social marketing professionals are still learning how to “be social”, and they are committed to helping people learn how to do it right. Just check out the reams of helpful content they offer.
That’s why we are stoked to announce that NeedTagger is now available as a FREE app inside HootSuite’s App Directory. That’s right, now you can sift Twitter for potential customers right inside the most widely-used social CRM tool in the world.
Here’s What You Get
Within HootSuite, all NeedTagger FREE users get the following features at no charge:
- create one intent-filtered prospecting stream (see our list of pre-tested filters)
- edit your stream definition any time
- search within your stream using keywords and block words
- send messages to prospects using Hootsuite’s standard engagement tools, including scheduling, security, etc.
- tag messages to work on later
Messaging Caps Apply (FREE users only)
With almost 5 million people using HootSuite, NeedTagger FREE users are subject to daily messaging caps to prevent anyone from being overwhelmed with offers of help. If a person’s daily cap has been reached, then all of the person’s posts will be greyed-out within NeedTagger for the rest of the day.
Upgrade to Customize
NeedTagger PRO users have no messaging caps and enjoy powerful custom features, including:
- mine Twitter’s full fire hose of data (over 400 million posts per day)
- create 5 custom campaigns (also available in HootSuite)
- customize campaigns with location filters, keywords and block words (unlimited)
- track the clicks and shares generated by your outreach
- monitor your NeedTagger-generated traffic in Google Analytics
- create and re-use message templates
- store landing pages
- and more
Pro Users Can Use Hootsuite, too
Starting this week, NeedTagger Pro users will also be able to access their custom campaigns inside HootSuite. However, certain features such as tracking via Insight analytics and message templates are not currently available in HootSuite. Paid accounts do not have message caps.

- Select NeedTagger to install the app into your Hootsuite environment
- Select MyApps / NeedTagger / Settings.
- Sign in or register your FREE account.
- Select your FREE filtered stream and GO
- Engage with potential customers on Twitter!
