What is the best software for creating profiles for multiple businesses and attaching the accounts. Especially Facebook, Twitter. Pintrest?
I manage several social media accounts for different businesses or community and nonprofit. I need to know if Hootesuit or hubspot does this and which one is better. I did a trial with Hootesuit and it errors and won't allow me to create the profiles.
Are you asking about managing profiles or about creating profiles? As far as I know, there is no way to create profiles for many different social sites all at once, although that would be an amazing idea for an entrepreneur! For management, I've used Hootsuite quite a bit & like it & also Tweetdeck for twitter accounts. I have heard good things about SocialOomph, but since it doesn't offer anything that Hootsuite doesn't I've stayed put for now.
Also check out sendible.com -- they cover a wide variety of platforms
Both platform are really good . if you want to manage all social a/c through one platform then you must choose the Hootesuit and if you want to increase new and genuine social network through content sharing then you can go with Hubspot.
I am using Hootsuite pro version for maintaining my social media accounts and it really works good for me. And more over what ever the software you use you can't get the full access to do that like hiding, chatting and editing your profile.
You could look into MarketMeSuite. Don't know if it manages Pinterest, but it does manage Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. SproutSocial is another option. I've not had any problems with HootSuite.
With respect to marketing automation platforms. They will allow you to post to Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter, but they don't have any analytics like the aforementioned. The way you can do analytics using MA is to utilize URL shortners, but that will only tell you how many people are clicking on your hyperlinks.
MA platforms can't give you the analytics, like reach, sentiment, engagement, fan/follower growth, among others, that social media specific tools will.
Maybe look into a CRM, we use Zoho and LOVE it especially for Social Media Integrations, & other Marketing initiatives. They offer free plans but I do not think they come with all the features that we get with the highest plan. Its worth a look though, you can post to multiple platforms @ once and even manage Google Ad Word Campaigns and Integrate their Projects Software. Check em out :)
Hootsuite and others like it are great for your inbound efforts. We have just officially launched Pixxfly which is automated outbound content management to all the social sites, etc.. It helps save time without having to post to all the social sites especially if you have several clients you are trying to manage. Contact me if you want to discuss.further. You can get details on our new website at www.pixxfly.com
myPresences (mypresences.com) is designed specifically for creating and managing profiles across social media and many other services and apps and discovering the best places to promote your business online. You can see the services we support at https://www.mypresences.com/services/.
It does not support posting to these networks yet though (can use hootsuite or buffer for this) but it gives you a very broad ability to manage your business online and keep on top of what is happening across all of your profiles and compare yourself to your competitors.

There isn't one for "creating profiles" as each of the networks are separate entities and require an individual's email address for each account. With Facebook, you can set up a business page without having a personal account, but if you have multiple locations, you need to do one for each location otherwise it's just the corporate brand. A personal account can have multiple business pages.
On both Twitter and Pinterest you need an email address for each account.
What I've done with clients with multiple locations is to train someone at each location to set up and manage their own pages. It's important that in a "social world" that all employees that deal with customers be on social media - it's employee advocacy.
Now, once the profiles are set up, then you can use HootSuite to manage them.
