Agorapulse

This is an excellent tool for quickly and easily scheduling out content over multiple social platforms. You get a clear view of how your content will be posted so you can be confident in the published product prior to posting. I've found the mobile app less appealing than the desktop platform so I would recommend using this mainly on desktop in the office.

They built their platform largely on contests. They still do a fairly good job on these

Pros

Agorapulse

  • Easily and quickly upload as many pieces of content as I want, rather than upload one at a time.
  • The preview feature gives me great confidence that I know exactly what people will see when I post.
  • Customer service is very responsive and quick to help.
  • I can easily perform social listening to follow more than just my own platforms.

  • Integration with Infusionsoft is easy (Infusionsoft purchased GroSocial).
  • Drag and drop building can be used by all skill levels.
  • The contests were effective for lead generation.

Cons

Agorapulse

  • Would be great to include Instagram in automatic scheduling
  • Analytics are not updated live and are slightly delayed
  • Doesn't include Instagram DM in responses

GroSocial (Discontinued Product)

  • When Infusionsoft purchased GroSocial it seemed like product development ceased. Many other companies surpassed their abilities.
  • They are very expensive for what they offer. Many other companies now offer better platforms, for far less.
  • When there was an issue (ie in a campaign, or link broke etc) the support team would blame the client first, when in most cases it could be proven to be a software malfunction.
  • Tabs are no longer smart phone friendly. When we stopped using GroSocial they had not set up the redirect link at that time. This may have changed now.
  • When you manage multiple accounts, your client could stop your access to their account. They could then stop paying for the service, and their tabs would still be live. GroSocial is the only one who could disable the tabs. It was not automatic.

For one, its pretty much an all-in-one solution. We're also currently subscribing to Buffer, but since AgoraPulse has Facebook scheduling modules, we might make a total switch once tested enough. The Game apps are also comprehensive, we only want to have Instant Wins and Sweepstakes, and not a lot of options has both. The customer service is superb, that's pretty important. We don't want to go through a lot of hassle stuff to get to what we want to do. Bottom line is AgoraPulse is a tool, and a very useful and intuitive tool that makes life so much easier

It's just excellent all around. Everyone is friendly and professional. Everyone seems empowered to make decisions and get things done. The communication is great.

Alternatives Considered

Agorapulse

  • Compared to Woobox, I love how easy it is to setup AgoraPulse contests. I can easily see the contest interface and how it would look like to the audience. There was also lesser need to test and see a live preview of the app because you can already preview it while editing.
  • AgoraPulse UI is also very intuitive, you can get to the menu options instinctively vs Woobox's frustrating UI.
  • AgoraPulse is also much more cheaper if you have a lot of fans.
  • The customer service is much more helpful. If I ask support@AgoraPulse something and they don't have it, they offer alternatives, whereas Woobox has none.
  • The tutorial also is pretty awesome: AgoraPulse has video tutorials allowing me to easily understand how to do things when I can't already figure it out (which is very seldom).

GroSocial quite simply does not stack up to the competition. They are years behind in development. We have moved all our clients to other platforms.

Return on Investment

Agorapulse

  • We saved thousand of dollars from switching from Hootsuite.
  • The platform pays for itself with half of one of our client's recurring fee.
  • We saved money from not getting additional reporting software.

  • The idea of GroSocial far outweight the frustration you experience when using the platform.
  • We saw no marked increase in anything using this product.
