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.

MavSocial

MavSocial is best suited for small businesses with 10 profiles to manage or less. The next best would be businesses with 11-30 profiles to manage. Above that, I believe there is other software that may be able to provide the same/similar features for similar cost and with more quality control on their system.

  • MavSocial offers features in one place that otherwise would require 2 or more services.
  • MavSocial offers both standard and evergreen posts.
  • The campaign calendar is wonderful to allow you to visually see what days and times you have covered.

Cons

  • The mobile app could catch up with the desktop version but it still has all the basic functionality and doesn't slow you down.

  • The reporting features of MavSocial are amazing; however, they tend to be a bit buggy. Some of this is due to the social media platforms changing their API so frequently; however, this feature was a huge selling point for me so I'd like to see them keep up with this a little better.

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.

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 selected MavSocial for the number of features for the money as well as the reporting.

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.

  • When I was first starting my business MavSocial allowed me to get started with very little monthly investment.
  • The reporting features which I love can be buggy and cause problems when trying to pull reports same day.
