I can't think of a scenario where AgoraPulse (AP) is not well suited, except in a situation where you might have many clients utilizing a specific social platform not integrated into AP yet. AgoraPulse is great for individual users as well as larger teams, from a small number of clients to many social accounts (we have between 30-40).

The tool is well suited for medium and large companies that are looking to gain mindshare and branding exposure by leveraging their employee's social presence. It may not suit small companies due to the license pricing structure or if there are so few employees to justify its use

Pros

  • I love having the ability to tag conversations, comments, and individual followers. This makes follow-up and reporting a breeze.
  • The layout is so intuitive. For being such a feature-rich application, it's easy to dive in and get started with the basics rather quickly. The training videos do a great job of breaking things up into bite-sized pieces.
  • The support team is phenomenal. I rarely wait more than a few hours for a response, even during off hours. The team is always courteous and professional. More importantly, they get things done quickly.

  • It easily integrates with social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Cons

  • I'd like to see support for Instagram Stories.
  • In addition to the calendar view, I'd like to be able to see scheduled Instagram posts in a 3x3 grid view. This would make planning much easier.
  • When creating a new post, it would be nice to have a way to edit photos after uploading. Even just a simple crop option would be amazing, especially for Instagram.
  • The calendar can be a little buggy at times if you try to drag and drop multiple posts into different spots too quickly. A simple page refresh always solves the issue, so it's not a big deal.
  • I'd like to be able to track the performance of LinkedIn posts.

  • Admins need to unlock the capability for regular users to modify and edit amplified messages.
  • The licensing model may not work for many small businesses.
  • Users can't augment the posts with their own images.

The decision has been made. It's time to get to work--no steps back. I feel confident this product is well suited to help me make progress. I want to get down business and utilize the functionality of this product to meet my marketing goals. I feel very comfortable with the choice I have made.

Customer service has been good. It's easy to use. It's cost effective. It's a good way to expand your social presence and get your employees more vested in branding the company without spending a ton of money. There are bells and whistles that may be good for other users. I just haven't had the time to use them

Alternatives Considered

I tried a few similar tools before I discovered AgoraPulse. Buffer and Post Planner are both good at what they do but ultimately fall short for managing multiple clients. Granted, they're also more affordable - great if you need something simple and you only have a few personal profiles to manage. I also tried Hootsuite, but it's just not for me. I'm sure it's a great tool for many, but I find it needlessly complex with a clunky interface. It's not nearly as intuitive as AgoraPulse, and quite frankly it's just not a good value for small and medium-sized agencies.

I haven't used the alternatives to GaggleAMP, it's in a very new category. Alternatives include: Smarp, PostBeyond, and Socialhp

Return on Investment

  • More social interactions with students, alumni, and prospective students through social inbox.
  • Increased visibility for events, research, and awards.
  • Increased our efficiency as it is allowing us to expand into other social media channels.

  • Since the tool is used for social exposure it's hard to quantify ROI. If you measure social impressions gained through its use you could measure that against the CPM cost of buying ads on each platform to attribute cost savings.
