AgoraPulse

AgoraPulse excels with multi-platform scheduling and queueing evergreen content for regular re-use. It lacks a unified inbox currently and could benefit from beefing up its Instagram listening features and LinkedIn image publishing.

  • 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

  • My favorite feature is the ability to schedule a post to multiple platforms (i.e, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) within one screen, but with the added bonus of being able to tweak each platform's post. That means custom URLs w/unique UTM codes, adjusted post length for different platforms, etc. A terrific feature.
  • The content queues are also wonderful. They allow me to find and distribute evergreen content at custom intervals without having to "reschedule" each time. Simply load up the content into a queue, set the days/times for each queue, and how many times you want that content to recycle and BOOM you're done.
  • Beyond that, they're always improving the platform. Each week some tweaks are made, which are announced in a blog post. The customer service is top notch, and they're humans -- meaning they're not just copying & pasting from a script, but they have personality and they listen. This goes a LONG way, and makes it easier to be patient with features that might not yet quite be there, or when there's an issue or unexpected change to an API that affects the platform.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

To be quite honest, we tried Agorapulse first and liked it so much we decided to go with Agorapulse almost immediately. Ease of use, accessible and easily obtainable analytics were the selling points.Tried Hootsuite but it really did not match up in comparison. Did not like the analytics, and the multiple column social engagement panel was difficult to navigate and hard to learn.We wanted to go with Sprout Social, but it was too expensive for our budget.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
