Likelihood to Recommend

AgoraPulse

It suits organizations of all size regardless or how small or how large. I would definitely recommend it for any paid campaign on Facebook/Instagram due to its easy aggregation of all activity including paid.

If you're operating a social media campaign across several platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc) This can really help, because it streamlines everything. Everybody is on the same page, and it tailors your organization to each user, so it's pretty easy to navigate once you have your footing. Really helps our social media manager out.

Pros

  • Puts all your socials content into one very easy to use place including paid content.
  • Automated profanity rules that can be used to either stop certain comments before they happen or identify important ones that use positive messaging like 'love, live'
  • allows multiple people to work as a team without stepping on each others' toes.

  • It's super clean and easy to use. From a client perspective, they like it because they can create their own news topics and share it with their internal audiences
  • The newest update lets you look at channels from other countries to see what current trends are globally
  • With the latest release, you can also post to LinkedIn and to groups on LinkedIn and Facebook – which makes it super easy for sharing content.

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.

  • It's a saturated market – there's a lot of programs like these, so while it's fun and easy to use, there's a lot of other apps like this. They'll need to innovate if they really want to stand out
  • Their website isn't exactly trustworthy – this is a weird complaint, but the site loads strange and doesn't look...legitimate, I guess. It's a hard sell with some people.
  • Loading is sometimes an issue – sometimes it's slower than others.

Alternatives Considered

Hootsuite was proving too expensive for what it gave us. Compared to AgoraPulse it came with a learning curve which was more than it should have been - AgoraPulse is very quick to get started with. AgoraPulse reporting exceeded that of Hootsuite being both easy to use and follow, and not requiring the ridiculous points.

Return on Investment

  • AgoraPulse has ensured that we have effective reporting, which was a goal we needed to achieve.
  • It provides an overview of what is happening with a limited amount of attention, so the time overhead is limited.
  • It has satisfied management that we will have control over what is occurring in our social media pages.

  • Keeps our clients happy – this is first and foremost. They can see the effectiveness of their campaigns
  • Helps us analyze our clicks – we can tell where our users are going, what they react to, and what they're looking at most
  • Streamlines our workload – it makes the whole process much faster, so we can worry about other things and tackle other projects.
