Agorapulse

Agorapulse also provides users with monitoring-specific features such as keyword searches, competitor analysis, and real-time tracking. 

Over 90% of Agorapulse’s users on TrustRadius come from small and mid-size businesses, with many reviewers praising the high quality of Agorapulse’s customer service. Reviewers also appreciate the URL tracker, the publishing calendar, and the ability to upload many pieces of content at once.

“I think Sprinklr should be used for all large corporations who need an easy platform to conduct in-depth data analysis. The learning curve was quick and it was easy to create dashboards for other people in my department…Me and my data supervisor were the primary users and we created dashboards for various content producers such that they could see how their posts were fairing for their audiences. We were able to track engagement with certain kinds of content and determine what the best strategy to optimize our content would be.”

What is Social Media Monitoring Software?

Social media monitoring tools “listen” to conversations across social media, tracking and analyzing information relevant to the user’s brand. For this reason, social media monitoring is also referred to as “social media listening.” These types of tools are typically used by marketing teams pursuing a social media content, or customer support strategy. These tools allow users to track customer sentiment across social platforms (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter), track data such as brand and competitor mentions and select keywords, and present this information in a dashboard, feed, or via an alert system. When choosing a specific product, buyers should consider the particular channels and platforms that are relevant to their brand, and whether they intend to use the tools alone or in conjunction with a broader Social Media Management (SMM) suite. Although social media monitoring is a capability of many SMM Suites, many specialized monitoring tools support multi-measure analytics that may not be possible using a single suite.
