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.

If you are looking to manage multiple social channels and quickly schedule posts it's a great tool. Not the best tool if you're looking to provide real time or near real time support and feedback to customers who are in the moment.

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.

  • The approval process - you can set up teams to create, edit, publish, approve etc.
  • The content and apps module allows you to create modules which can be displayed on your Facebook page under the tabs section. You can create interactive modules for your customers to view.

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.

  • Videos posted to Facebook via SRM have to be clicked to run instead of running automatically.
  • No ability to boost posts or ads from SRM.
  • Due to privacy restrictions of various social streams, unable to listen to 'people'; can only listen to business pages.
  • Not able to publish the same post at the same hour across time zones. So, if you want to publish a post at 8 am EST and 8 am PST, you have to do 2 separate posts. Otherwise your 8 am EST will post at 5 am PST.

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

Our personal support finally came back at the end of our contract, but their product just could not offer what the competition offered. Social media is moving fast, and you need to work with companies that understand that and are at the forefront of trends, you can't get stuck with a company that is standing still.

Vitrue's training was limited online and not very in-depth, but the the platform is overall very easy to use and doesn't necessarily need a large amount of training.

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.

I have used one other enterprise level application; it was comparable to SRM. We moved away from the first application because our parent company uses many other Oracle applications, not because we were 'unhappy' with the application we had at the time. Having said that, SRM does everything we need from it; in fact, there are features we aren't fully leveraging at this point. I especially find Engage, Content and Apps and Publish particularly useful. This is the kind of platform that is very robust; you get out of it what you have the time and resources for

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.

  • Audience. Before SRM, we had 1,000 Likes on Facebook. In 1 1/2 years using SRM, our Likes have grown to 20,000.
  • Frequency. Before SRM, we posted once a week on Facebook & Twitter. In 1 1/2 years using SRM, we now post 54 times a month, or about twice a day on weekdays.
  • Internal acceptance. Before SRM, social was considered "a hobby" by senior management. Now, social marketing is a key part of the strategy of every product launch. That is due to the hard work of our social marketing manager, of course, but her efforts were amplified by SRM.
