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

PageLever

Pagelever has an amazing team that helps clients get what they need. They understand the needs and are there to help you get the benefits you need from your competitors. In comparison with some other vendors we have worked with, they adopted a true partnership approach. They are very good at listening to what we wish to achieve and then helping us tweak the product to meet our goals. We were initially on the Professional plan and even before we eventually upgraded to the more fully-featured Agency plan, they were very willing to work with us to make sure the product did what we needed it to do.Moving to the Agency plan was great since it gave us additional agency features that were very important such as giving our clients automatic acces to their data and allowing us to set up custom KPIs and custom reports.

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.

  • It has amazing in depth of data about Facebook Pages. For example, it shows us how exactly content is being consumed over time. We can easily see segmented data showing what content is being consumed by which demographic groups. It's also very easy to incorporate all this data into a a usable report which can be share with our clients.
  • Analysis with competitive streams: We can compare metrics across client accounts to quickly spot anomalies or see if, for example, low click-through rate is specific to one client, or is common across our account base and possibly due to external factors.
  • Very easy to use - great usability. The product is quite flexible and we can easily configure custom reports with dashboards and KPIs that are specific to our client's use cases.
  • Client access: Clients can log-in to the system to see customized reports that we configure specifically for them. This is a huge advantage.
  • The ability to track changes in metrics over different time periods is also extremely helpful. This is often a key metric for our clients and it is very simple to pul this data from the system.

Cons

  • I'm not a fan of the way AgoraPulse pushes images to LinkedIn, which is as a link, rather than a native image. It leads to some clunky-looking posts.
  • One item I'd like to see, which I believe they're working on, is a unified inbox. Having all notifications in one place would make it easier to use as the primary means for responding to and engaging with our audience.
  • While the listening feature is awesome, it's fairly limited for Instagram. I wish there was the ability to create a search with filters based on language, or excluding words/hashtags, etc. There are hashtags I want to listen for, but the volume of nonsense and/or irrelevant posts that use those hashtags makes it difficult to weed through. A better advanced search function for that feature would be a huge benefit.

  • The interface should be a little bit faster. Since the system contains a lot of data, it can be a bit slow to load.

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.

PageLever is a fantastic product for agencies. The ability to customize and easily share metrics with our clients is key. Many other tools are great for corporate use, but PageLever is a particularly effective tool for agencies working with multiple clients.

Alternatives Considered

I think AgoraPulse combines the best aspects of Sprout Social and Hootsuite into one program. Hootsuite is fantastic for listening, but lacks in the publishing and metrics departments. Hootsuite also does not have any form of Instagram analytics. Sprout Social has great tools for metrics but I feel like their listening tools are lacking. I feel that AgoraPulse has all of these tools and is the perfect platform for listening, publishing and metrics.

Return on Investment

  • Scheduling a month's worth of posts for a single client would take 6-7 hours without AgoraPulse. Now we're down to about 90 minutes!
  • AgoraPulse allows me to take on 3-4 times the number of clients I'd otherwise be able to handle.

  • Great data that can help a lot in decision making. For example, as the system provides very granular, real-time data we can easily see if certain posts / conntent is resonating with the target deomgraphic group or not. If we are trying to appeal to males between the ages of 35 and 45, it's quite simple to see if our messaging is effective in reaching this group. We can do A/B testing and test different things until we find the content that resonates most strongly with this demographic group.
