Fantastic for social media management and customer care. Less appropriate for areas where social media, content creation, analytic tracking or customer care is less of a concern. However these days the majority of companies will probably have a social media team, so it is more of a necessity these days really

  • Edgar works best if you already have enough (or plan on keep adding more) evergreen content to avoid too much repetition. This will of course be dependent on the frequency of your schedule as well as how refined your categories are.
  • Edgar works for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn currently, and it doesn't seem like they will be adding more networks in the near future.

Pros

  • Social media posting through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
  • Excellent UI and especially in the social inbox. Its now incredibly easy to keep up with comments, mentions, posts, all in one place.
  • Competitor analysis allowed us to cut out roughly 12 hours of work per month. We are working more efficiently and getting more done with our staff we have.

  • Keep a library of your favourite/most popular content. Assign them categories and give them different time slots throughout the week. For example, we didn't want to bombard our fans with sales and promotions, so we keep that to a minimum while having the majority of our recurring posts to be helpful and non-sales-y content.
  • You also have the ability to assign time slots for random content. If you have contents that you wish to exclude from this all-random slot, it can be adjusted on a category level.
  • RSS feed integration. Automatically review and add content from your RSS feed onto your Edgar queue.

Cons

  • Expansions into other social networks such as Instagram Story or Snapchat
  • Bit.ly shortening on the Facebook publishing, and in-app Instagram main link changing would be incredibly helpful.
  • Bit.ly API and analytic integrations would be helpful.

  • Inability to use multiple photos for a single Facebook post.
  • Photo resolution will be shrink down to mobile friendly resolutions. This might be enough for most users/organizations, though.

Alternatives Considered

An important consideration is I believe AgoraPulse is designed to support three of the social profiles that are most important to me. After comparing the products side by side over a short time AgoraPulse proved to the be the match for my needs. One of the other platforms had an interface that was too cluttered. Another had similar functionality but was more expensive

In terms of evergreen content promotion, Buffer and AgoraPulse offer very basic functionalities in this regard. We were looking for something that would enable us to categorize our evergreen content and Edgar is the only product on the market then that does this. We no longer need to manually re-post anything and only need to focus on content-creation. It is worth noting that we are still using Buffer in conjunction with MeetEdgar, where the former takes care of our new content while the latter will continually share the best content of the bunch.

Return on Investment

  • A positive impact is to have found a solution for managing a social media presence.
  • This product was just recently chosen; thus, the ROI is TBD.
  • A negative impact is the effect on the budget for my small business! I feel, however, I found good value with AgoraPulse.

  • It is important to keep a content presence in social media especially at a time where organic reach is low both in percentage and quantity. Edgar makes sure that we do and drive a lot more traffic versus our previous social media content sharing model.
