Considered Both Products
Agorapulse
Chose Agorapulse
We have used many different tools in the past but Agorapulse really is the best in terms of unifying all of our platforms in one place. It saves us time on a daily basis and means we can limit how many programmes we use. Why use five when one will do!
Chose Agorapulse
We chose Agorapulse thanks to the sales team, which created an exclusive offer. Thanks to that, we've been able to start using it. The fact that the sales team was available in our mother tongue and helped us right from the beginning was, in my opinion, the key to our decision. …
Chose Agorapulse
Agorapulse has a better overall package. It offers conversation management, posting/scheduling, analyses for (almost) all platforms in one. Although not all features are there yet in my opinion and Agorapulse can still be improved, it is the most complete on the market at this …
Chose Agorapulse
The best feature of Agorapulse for me personally is the ability to set recurring posts. Perfect for making very sure a message comes through!
Chose Agorapulse
We chose Agorapulse because it has relatively good integration with Instagram and it supports a lot of individual profiles, which we have.
Chose Agorapulse
Agorapulse was a bit hidden within the social media management tool search, but I'm so glad I found it. Its price plans are affordable and fit well within the company's budget. It's truly the best bang for your buck. Agorapulse does everything that the bigger SMMTs do, but it's …
Chose Agorapulse
AgoraPulse has better listening than anyone else. It could pick up conversations and location tags that others couldn't. I liked that you could customize your social media post for multiple platforms. I liked that I could view a calendar and bulk publish and schedule a lot of …
Chose Agorapulse
AgoraPulse struck the perfect balance between affordability and features; for our requirements, it came out as the second-cheapest tool. It has been much better than Hootsuite in terms of stability and ease of use, and while it lacks behind in the additional content that …
Chose Agorapulse
We evaluated Sprout Social and fell in love with its look and functionality. We found that AgoraPulse provided most or all of the functionality of Sprout at a small fraction of the cost.

We also evaluated Sendible and generally liked the product, but we preferred AgoraPulse as …
Chose Agorapulse
I used Hootsuite, whose interface is not handy, and the analysis options are expensive. In addition to that, you need to use ow.ly and I use and prefer bit.ly.
Chose Agorapulse
Sprout Social was very bulky to handle. It made my Chrome and Firefox crash regularly and was very pricey too! Hootsuite was like a zoo on the screen. Too many options. Very less organized.
Chose Agorapulse
Though there are features from different apps that I'd like in Agorapulse, what you get in terms of being able to manage multiple users, social activity, and streamlined interface to do most of what you need far outweighs those limitations. Customer service has been great and …
Chose Agorapulse
Hootsuite is complicated and not useful to post and program, it only shows links, not pictures.
AgoraPulse is easy to use and a more intuitive way of doing the normal everyday process of posting or analyzing information for any company. I don't have too much time to spend …
Chose Agorapulse
I've used Wildfire and others in the past. AgoraPulse wins by far on cost, which enabled us to get this tool in the first place on a startup gaming company budget.
TweetDeck
Chose TweetDeck
TweetDeck has the best listening for Twitter. Other platforms have social listening, but only for direct mentions or hashtag usage. TweetDeck can do so much more than this, picking up mentions of your brand even when a user doesn't directly mention you or use your hashtag. …

Agorapulse
Agorapulse has been a huge benefit to us as a business and is the most comprehensive platform we've used, having previously been with Hootsuite and ContentCal. It is likely to be better for companies that are managing multiple social profiles and want to consolidate these into one manageable platform. Given the amount of features it provides, it might not be suitable for individuals. The reporting is a fantastic part of the platform, which includes brand awareness for certain profiles, the best time to post for engagement, and details that all help with strategising. The inbuilt link shortening and tracking is useful, we've set this up and need to explore its capabilities further. Overall, we would recommend Agorapulse and it's a great asset to our business.

TweetDeck is ideal for complex media organisations / newsrooms where you want to keep track of several users accounts, or switch between multiple user and/or title accounts. It is perfect for those who want to follow conversations in real-time via many channels, at a glance. It is also useful for those who want to schedule tweets to provide around the clock coverage even when unmanned. Now that it paid-for is less suited to smaller organisations with tight budgets.

Pros
Agorapulse
  • Calendar sharing - great for internal and external approval
  • Community management - it means we can keep on top of engagement for all of our clients in one place
  • Report - it's really useful for us to be able to create such in depth reports that we can use internally but also share with clients so they can see the results of what we are doing

  • TweetDeck is the best platform to schedule tweets - it is far better than the website itself. The process is remarkably easy and scheduling a day's worth of tweets takes no more than 10 minutes.
  • Tracking news is very easy on TweetDeck due to being able to create multiple columns each focusing on a different subject. Columns can be created using handles, searches, hashtags, and trends, and this makes TweetDeck a great platform as a news editor.

Cons
Agorapulse
  • Would love to have a draft feature. We often don't schedule things until the assets are ready, or use a placeholder image and swap them afterwards
  • Editing posts intended for multiple channels is not as easy as scheduling them in the first place. I would love to edit and have the same menu I do as when I'm scheduling where I have my base text and then the adjusted text for each social media. It's rare that something I've planned to be a similar post across channels, needs editing, but only for one of those channels. e.g. Correcting mistakes or changing strategies.
  • Currently, I export the analytics and put it in a Google Sheet where I have more control over the data, which I love. For me to use the Agora Reports system, I would need substantial features like comparing metrics in the same charts, using direct line charts instead of smoothed (smoothed charts look nice, but just obfuscate data), separating out paid growth, etc. It's probably too large an ask for what Agora is trying to provide, which is why the export tool is very useful.
  • While I'm talking about it, a slight bug with the export tool is that when you export two things in quick succession, it just sends a duplicate of the first report via email. I'll export a CSV of Global data and then a CSV of Content, and if I do it too quickly, it doubles up the Global data and I don't get the Content until I resend.
  • More specific filtering for listening. Sometimes someone has our brand in their name and we get ALL of their content. We have to add each user like this to the filter instead of being able to filter out usernames that contain it.

  • TweetDeck has an editing feature for scheduled posts only if there is no image attached. When a post with an image needs editing, users must instead delete the entire post and reschedule it with the edits needed.
  • TweetDeck has a real-time display, however users often need to refresh the window manually to get scheduled posts to appear in the appropriate column.
  • TweetDeck users can scroll side to side to view all off the types of columns selected. This functionality often leads to traveling back to a previous page unintentionally.

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.

As I previously mentioned, if TweetDeck were to increase some features and integrations, cleaned up its interface, and developed a tool to measure ROI, it would remain competitive with HootSuite and Hubspot. Altogether, it is an effective tool for the job of scheduling and monitoring your impact on Twitter, it falls behind other competitors that offer a more robust solution.

Usability
Agorapulse
Any time I onboard a new team member, they are very quick to adapt to Agora's user interface and therefore require a very quick onboarding process from me, which is a massive plus. While I think having an all-in-one platform would be ideal, there is something to be said about only having a few bells and whistle so that my team can focus on what is most important to us and our clients, content

It's a pretty easy tool to use I find a few of the columns to be a bit repetitive. If you are managing more than one account you'll start to find yourself having easily 10 plus columns all tracking all different information which creates nice track lanes to keep all that relative information in one column or "view". With the amount of data that is pushed out, if you are following a large number of accounts, it's extremely easy to lose valuable posts in your feeds. As you begin building out your columns they get the point where you only look at one or two and the rest seem to be lost. Overall, this a free tool and there are other social monitoring tools that are out there but are in the multiple thousands of dollar range

Support Rating
Agorapulse
The support from Agorapulse is excellent. Any time we have made contact they have been quick to reply, and given added extra information to help. The initial sales experience was also good. Not pushy like a lot of other companies, more that they would like to help. And they certainly did for us at a difficult time which built a fantastic relationship with us from the very start. Communication is great too, with just the right amount of emails and updates. Overall we feel that they genuinely care about their clients and users.

I've never had to contact customer support. Tweetdeck has always worked like a charm for me. And, if I have had a problem, I've simply deleted the column, then recreated it and it worked again. While it's not without its glitches every once in a great while, it's worked like a charm.

Several years ago I used the Hootsuite Free service. I found Tweetdeck to be preferable because of its user interface, and greater functionality. Moreover, I recall Hootsuite bombarding me with emails that were just irrelevant. TweetDeck just does what it does, without hassle. Its UI and functionality for multiple accounts seems to be the best I've tried.
