Loomly Review: Short and Sweet
Loomly is a social media management tool that helps brands, influencers, and social media managers schedule and optimize their posts. The tool also gives managers control over their team members’ activities since changes, updates, deletions, and other actions are tracked and sent through email and push notifications. Team managers can immediately review and make corrections if necessary.
You can enjoy a 15-day trial and take advantage of all premium features, including the PDF export functionality, calendar management, post scheduling and analytics, and live post analysis. After that period, you’d need to choose a paid service package that starts at $20 a month for 10 social media accounts and two users. Agencies that need to manage more than 61 accounts need to contact the company for arrangements with the Enterprise plan. The company doesn’t provide refunds or credits, so make sure to choose a service plan wisely.
Loomly is more than just a calendar tool for social media managers as it offers post analysis and scheduling. The Arizona-based service started in 2013. Since then, it has allowed brands and agencies to have an organized workflow, flawless scheduling and monitoring, and performance measurement. Among Loomly’s features are:
- Social media calendar management
- Post preview
- Live post analysis
- Approval workflow and history
- Post scheduling and analytics
- Email and push notifications
The tool enables brands, freelancers, and influencers to have a smooth internal workflow for all their social media updates from one dashboard. Gone are the days when calendar spreadsheets are manually updated and maintained.

All fees and charges are non-refundable, and the company also doesn’t provide credits even for partially used periods.
Loomly provides a very helpful tutorial page that covers how to create a calendar, create and schedule a post, and other actions. There are also FAQs that users can take advantage of before they decide to talk to customer support. If the issues aren’t found in these resources, you can reach customer support through live chat and the “Contact Us” form.
You’d expect live chat to be available 24/7, but support agents can only be reached during office hours on weekdays. As for the “Contact Us” form, there’s no specific response time indicated so you probably have to wait for 24 to 48 hours.
Anything that lets you get rid of manual spreadsheets should be a welcome addition to your team’s work process applications. With Loomly, you can do more than schedule posts. You can integrate the tool with Slack so communication is free-flowing and from only one place. It also offers post analysis which helps you learn how to make posts more effective.
If you’re a small team, Loomly’s Base plan is convenient and cost-effective since it’s only $20 per month. However, if you manage a large number of social accounts, the price goes up. It’s better to have a look around before deciding to sign up.
