AgoraPulse

I can't think of a scenario where AgoraPulse (AP) is not well suited, except in a situation where you might have many clients utilizing a specific social platform not integrated into AP yet. AgoraPulse is great for individual users as well as larger teams, from a small number of clients to many social accounts (we have between 30-40).

Oktopost

Oktopost is great if you have several Social Media profiles you want to manage and want to schedule and post all your things in a simple interface. They have a great calendar view that shows everything that is coming up and you can easily move or change postings with a few clicks.It is also good for managing a single account. It has all the features I need for our single account markets, like campaigns, tracking, scheduling, etc.I think if you are trying to manage a very large number of social media profiles it might get a bit difficult. There are tools more suited for that than Oktopost that may be easier, but Oktopost would still work.

Pros

  • Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram analytics. The stats are presented beautifully. They are easy to understand by anyone and wonderfully show the value social has to a business. Their Facebook report is even available in stunning PowerPoint presentation! AgoraPulse also clocks the amount of time your users spend reviewing and answering questions on your social platforms. A great way to show the actual work that goes into managing a brand's online presence.
  • Social Listening tools - definitely my favourite part of AgoraPulse. Their social listening over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is amazing. One can easily see which messages are new, review them and see a list of reviewed items. You can also like, comment and share mentions over all three platforms. Setting up searches is simple and hassle free and unlike Sprout Social has a box for you to tell it what not to include in search results. As a result, your time spent going through your social networks is minimal and you have more time for other tasks.
  • Scheduling for Facebook and Twitter. Nice, simple scheduling tool. Looking forward to when they introduce Google +, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
  • Social Selling - because of their great social listening tools, AgoraPulse makes it really easy for an organisation to implement social selling. A strategy that all organisations need to be looking at if they plan to stay relevant and ahead of their competitors.
  • Customer Support - AgoraPulse has the best customer support I have ever come across. You really feel valued and not another customer churning their revenue machine.

  • Oktopost has a great interface for publishing posts, allowing you to select multiple social media profiles and easily schedule a message across all of them.
  • Oktopost tracks your performance and has an automated tool that will schedule posts for you based on when past posts performed best and it works pretty well.
  • I like the ability to create multiple campaigns easily and quickly. The whole interface is very simple to use and streamlined.

Cons

  • I wish AgoraPulse collected IG story analytics.
  • It would be nice to get analytics for competitor sponsored posts.
  • Implement an Instagram Story scheduler.

  • The main campaign overview is downloadable to PDF, but the reports by campaign is only downloadable as an excel file, would love that to change.

The price is right, the platform is a performer and the staff at AgoraPulse is unparalleled. They also have a great blog that is highly topical---keeps me on top of social media. It's the best social media blog I have found---and I read a lot of blogs!

When I have sent in questions to support, I have received answers pretty quickly and they were helpful.However, I would like to see more information on the support page rather than having to contact them directly.

There is a lack of online training videos or documentation. They have a long list of FAQ's but I would prefer a quick YouTube video instead.

As I stated earlier, I would suggest doing a quick session with the Oktopost team in order to properly set up the account and make sure you are getting the full experience.

Alternatives Considered

Most of our issue was not being able to find a platform that had everything for a small business sized price. Tall task. So we started with our budget, and tried to find something that had 80% of what we were looking for. We were pleasantly surprised to find AgoraPulse could get us about 90% of what we were looking for in a SM monitoring tool for the price we were looking to spend.

I used Hootsuite for a few years. Hootsuite's look and feel are very cumbersome, especially when compared to the bright and user-friendly Oktopost. Plus, HS is very basic and for each added item (or report) you have to pay more, while in Oktopost you just get a full package (which you can also choose). The scheduling is much easier, in my opinion and Oktopost offers a "Content" feature (running now in HS only in Beta version the last time I checked Nov 2014), which is very helpful for curating content.

Return on Investment

  • I haven't been able to prove a ROI with AgoraPulse
  • I wish their was a non profit discount for adding on social media accounts
  • Positive effect of better social listening, we're more responsive
  • Love the Instagram location listening tool

  • Oktopost has saved our editors a lot of time. They can post something to one site or batch schedule multiple posts to multiple sites at one time and Oktopost handles everything really well.
  • We're better able to track performance of our Social Media posts and how they perform with Oktopost.
