AgoraPulse

For a social media manager with numerous clients, it's a no-brainer. It makes juggling multiple accounts so simple, and almost fun! The reporting features are adequate, and it's very strong on team collaboration. On the other hand, for an individual business managing just a few social media profiles, I'd consider AgoraPulse to be more of a luxury than a necessity. It will certainly save you a lot of time, so it really comes down to how much your time is worth. Lastly, for those who focus the majority of their efforts on Instagram Stories, this may not be the tool for you - at least not in its present form.

If you are looking to this product to gather press release hits, look somewhere else. If you want a simple one stop shop to accessing your social media over various forums, Sendible is great. Especially for a business I work for (large corporation with resort, spa, golf, restaurants); it can be crazy having to access so many different places to respond. One stop is the way to go

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.

  • User experience - I have always found Sendible to be easy to understand and use.
  • Innovative - our team needed a solution for Pinterest badly -- no other tools were integrated with it but we needed to be able to schedule pins in advance. Sendible offered one of the first Pinterest solutions in the space.
  • Customer Service - over a few years we had meaningful contact with the customer care team and they were always prompt and helpful.

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.

  • Tracking PR hits that have come through... it often times sends me articles that are years old... or articles that have nothing to do with the Resort at all.
  • I believe the user interface could be more user friendly.
  • Posting can be confusing for new people to Sendible, but not too bad.

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.

I've used full marketing automation platforms, which contain this functionality and much more. I've used HootSuite. Sendible is cheap and doesn't work very well. Give it a trial. If it works for you, great! But consider what your social media goals are. Saving yourself time on reporting or on engaging with your audience is not a sensible marketing goal. I doubt Sendible can help you grow engagement levels, identify new leads in a B2B context, monitor competitors well, or nurture leads.

Return on Investment

  • Positive impact on clients, they’re happy with reports.
  • Positive impact on staff because it makes their job easier.
  • Positive impact on me (Owner) because of cost savings.
Jenna Boodram profile photo
  • Our case study on the Pinterest side of things was remarkable. Allowing us to schedule our pins in advance meant we could publish at a higher frequency and also at more meaningful times. It impacted our Pinterest growth and conversions from Pinterest very noticeably.
