AgoraPulse

AgoraPulse is well-suited to allowing you to organize and produce many posts between multiple platforms for your social media accounts. It allows for teamwork and simple assignment of projects among team members. It also enables easy collection of data and analytics and presentation of materials for proving ROI and strategizing future campaigns.

Commun.it

For a small business or individual Commun.it could be used to quickly and efficiently grow an audience. Using the featured hashtag functionality in particular means that, instead of wading through various searches on Twitter, all the information is at your finger-tips and you can act on it accordingly. I think it would have benefits for businesses of multiple sizes however a smaller business might find the price-point prohibitive.

Pros

  • We have always struggled with sorting out what is happening in real time or where it is happening at. With AgoraPulse, this is simplified because everything is right in front of you.
  • The platform alerts us to new interactions while we are away from the computer or office. This has stopped the long process of sorting back through social accounts to see what, if anything transpired during our off hours.
  • The time savings with AgoraPulse became evident very quickly. We can take a few minutes in the morning to review the overnight interactions and check in through the day or as soon as we receive alerts from them. Social media is important but it can become a huge time investment and this product just helps us sort and respond quickly.

  • I love the #fridayfollow suggestions - I find these get a lot of engagement from my Twitter fans and I use it regulalry.
  • I like the ability to automate certain functions, as a social media agency this means the time spent managing client accounts is reduced but with no impact on quality of work.
  • I like the suggestions for replying and engaging with as a tool for expanding your reach and network.

Cons

  • I wish AgoraPulse collected IG story analytics.
  • It would be nice to get analytics for competitor sponsored posts.
  • Implement an Instagram Story scheduler.

  • The number of emails received from commun.it when you use the free version is incredibly frustrating 1-2 per day.
  • The interface is very 'busy' and takes a while to get used to.

The price is right, the platform is a performer and the staff at AgoraPulse is unparalleled. They also have a great blog that is highly topical---keeps me on top of social media. It's the best social media blog I have found---and I read a lot of blogs!

Alternatives Considered

AgoraPulse struck the perfect balance between affordability and features; for our requirements, it came out as the second-cheapest tool. It has been much better than Hootsuite in terms of stability and ease of use, and while it lacks behind in the additional content that SproutSocial offers it makes up for it in price. The customer service has also been second to none, something which was nice to discover after taking out a subscription.

Buffer is great for scheduling tweets and analyzing how your tweets fare, I can also use Buffer for LinkedIn. But, Buffer does not offer follower analytics and give suggestions on who to follow and unfollow. We use the free version of Buffer as well but they do not constantly bombard you with upgrade requests

Return on Investment

  • Reduced overall production time for social media planning
  • Reduced account executive's time spent on back and forwards with clients.

  • The number 1 objective that Commun.it helps with is our social media engagement. It is one of the tools we use to help us analyze our audience and save time to manage social media.
  • It's difficult to assess ROI since we are using the free tool.
  • The only negative impact is many emails pushing the upgrade.
