Likelihood to Recommend

Bambu

Bambu has been helpful to shift our culture from one of reluctance and fear related to social media to one of acceptance.

LinkedIn Elevate

I would strongly recommend LinkedIn Elevate to a colleague and have even pushed an initiative to my manager to get each member on my sales team an account. LinkedIn Elevate is perfectly suited for keeping your LinkedIn content and Twitter content fresh, up to date and relevant. It is so crucial for folks in the technology space to be active online, share with their connections that they have interesting articles and videos to share, and are worth connecting with to collaborate in the future. There is one scenario where Elevate is likely not appropriate and that is trying to use it as just a content calendar tool for any and all social platforms. You can connect your Facebook if you use that for business, but Elevate is really better suited for scheduling content to be shared on your social networks of LI and Twitter to show your industry - whatever it may be - that you are relevant. It isn't as good for sharing funny videos/lighter social on Facebook for example.

Pros

Cons

Bambu

  • I feel overall that Bambu is a great, cohesive tool. No major changes or updates needed that I can think of.

LinkedIn Elevate

  • If I schedule an article to be posted on LinkedIn and want to go back to edit it to have it posted on Twitter as well at the same scheduled time, this is hard and shouldn't be
  • For filtering content so the user just sees articles they are interested in, some of the filters are too broad. I work in Cloud. Cloud happens to also cover things like AI and Data, which aren't in my specialty. I wish my articles and content were just cloud software.
  • The pane where the user can see all scheduled posts could have a different view. They are shown in a list and aren't easy to drag/drop and change. This would be super useful on the desktop browser version.

Alternatives Considered

Bambu

It was similar in that it helped us push prewritten messages out to our team, but the UX/UI was far more dated and not as intuitive. It's mobile app also wasn't very useful; made it difficult to edit messages and would constantly need you to log back in. The two things GaggleAMP had over Bambu however was more comprehensive analytics and the ability to automatically push out social posts

LinkedIn Elevate

Hootsuite is the master of content management and calendar building, but it lacks the repository of articles from experts across your company! I also secretly am less of a fan of the UI in the content calendar view of Hootsuite. LinkedIn Elevate is less cluttered to the eye, but their scheduled post page needs improvement. It should be way easier to change times and add networks to already scheduled posts before they go out.
