    When you start a strategy and want to discover how the audiense is composed, this is the first step to start exploring and then create your buyer personas with more details from other auxiliary tools (social listening, market research). Audiense is the best way to start exploring. It works better when you are dealing with big social media accounts when you want to explore audiences from a specific country or very specific interests. It’s good to import information from listening tools like Brandwatch to get better results about your audience.

    Khoros Marketing offers all of the necessary basic functions. Before the partnership, we knew exactly what relevant functions we needed for our business. In addition over time, we have discovered more advanced resources that have proven to be very helpful to our organization. It is refreshing to invest in a company that values research and development as well as the user interface.

    Pros

    Audiense

    • Audiense is the best tool I have found for tie your tweets to changes in your followers. In essence, I can see when tweets are gaining or losing followers for my account.
    • Audiense also has great analytical tools like best time to tweet reports
    • Audiense also provide a very complete look at each person you follow or is following you. It helps to understand who the people are.

    Khoros Marketing (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

    • Khoros makes scheduling posts for several different channels very easy. The calendar is a great way to see an overview of upcoming content and gaps in the schedule.
    • The Care module allows us to communicate via direct messages and see the history of communications with a social media user.
    • We've implemented an approval process within Khoros so that multiple users can submit posts for the comms team to approve before they're published.

    Cons

    Audiense

    • For the USA, if Audiense.com is able to pull in the FULL spectrum of Acxiom data, then we have a truly splendid solution.
    • For the world, if Audiense.com is able to enrich an audience with PIPL, Apollo.io, and Full Contact API data, then we have the next iteration of this already amazing solution
    • As Audiense.com refines its SEMRush partnership, we will see advanced SEO unlink anything seen in past decades.
    • If Audiense.com were to integrate the full capabilities of Relationship Science ( relsci.com ), then we would, as salespeople, have the next iteration of the solution as a sales power tool.

    Khoros Marketing (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

    • Uploading Instagram stories through Khoros.
    • Uploading Instagram carousels through Khoros.
    • Reducing the wait time for some things to delete or add to the content calendar.
    • Sorting by date added as default in the content center.
    • Having the most used initiative as the default when first entering Khoros instead of the newest created one.

    I have been using it for a few years now and I still think it's a pretty competitive tool, although a lot of new interesting tools are coming on the market and I am always on the lookout for new solutions. If it keeps innovating, however, Audiense could stay relevant for some time to come

    There is no product like Khoros. Our company lives and dies by the analytics, and to date, we have not seen a more comprehensive analytics structure for any social media management tool. Khoros support is also fantastic, responding and resolving any and all questions, ideas, or complaints, usually in 24 hours.

    Khoros Marketing is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. The calendar visibility is the view I use most so I can see all posts going out on all of our channels. It allows us to time posts in a proper cadence so we don't overlap with other pressing content.

    Khoros has greatly improved the performance of its SaaS products in the last 5 years. Their applications, including Conversations, Intelligence, and Experiences, all load quickly with real-time data. This performance is critical to provide meaningful, social customer support, and marketing. The performance maintains integrity even when you deploy powerful integrations like Salesforce Customer Relationship Manager.

    Someone is almost always available and responds very quickly to any issues or concerns. Customer service is one of their best features and we have never had an issue. They take their time making sure you understand what you are working with and are available via email or phone to walk you through any issues.

    it is important to note that my perspective is not necessarily common - I'm a geek/nerd/poweruser in general, so I found the online resources to be more than adequate (and often very aesthetically pleasing, too). That said, a less "geeky" person might struggle a bit.

    The implementation team from Khoros were great - they worked hard to understand our somewhat complex organization, and were with us all the way through face to face meetings, user training, and technical training. We had a clearly defined account manager and implementation manager, who worked really effectively together and with us.

    Alternatives Considered

    Audiense

    I have used a few audience insight tools but I find Audiense has a large mix of data within one platform. For instance, IBM Watson, Demos, Social Listening, Hashtags. It is great to have a lot of insights about an audience in one place to have a holistic understanding.

    Khoros Marketing (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

    We have been using three different platforms, including Khoros, the other two being Curalate and Dash Hudson. Curalate has a straightforward reporting tool and Dash Hudson as well, and it is so easy to post and schedule within the app that we have slowly started to move the majority of our actual scheduling to DH. However, Khoros still has the best overall content calendar view and the notes and ability to see when updates are made to a particular piece of content.

    The product scales beautifully. You can have as many or as few brands and users in the system. The cost for licenses can get costly so you want to really make sure that the right people are in the system so you're not buying licenses that are not impactful.

    Return on Investment

    Audiense

    • Definitely increased the value of my social intelligence data. Now I'm able to really understand who my audience is and this helps my clients think about them as real people instead of an anonymous group.
    • Time saved, being able to click a button and then have my audience generated within a couple of hours without me having to do anything else is invaluable.
    Kim Townend | TrustRadius Reviewer

    • The Plans section is great for keeping track of content that needs to be posted.
    • The Calendar is wonderful for viewing upcoming and previous posts for additional data when needed.
    • The Analytic section is terrific for tracking posts and easily viewing them natively when needed.
