Most organizations interested in a Social Selling/Employee Advocacy platform would do well to try out Sociabble. It can be customized and adapted to perfectly fit your organization's needs and will almost certainly provide ROI on user engagement and connection to the broader goals of the organization. The only reason I might not suggest Sociabble would be if you're looking for a quick, turnkey solution to Employee Advocacy for a smaller team. All of the customization and gamification options Sociabble offers might be underutilized by small teams and do require some level of setup/configuration.

We've had a total of ~30 support tickets with Sociabble and am not proud to say that if we had done better research, probably 20 of them could have been solved with their useful help documentation/content. However, when we do run into an issue within the platform, their Support Team is always quick to assist and provide an acceptable solution.

Sprout Social
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

Return on Investment
Sprout Social
  • The social amplification effects of our employees sharing brand content helped us achieve a 400% increase in website visits following our re-brand.
  • With some "Executive nudging" when we announced that Bambu would be used as our internal comms tool, and that we would only be sharing real-time updates via the mobile apps push notifications, we were able to double the # of employees who use the App in addition to the desktop application. Mobile users aside, another positive side effect of using Bambu as an internal comms tool is that it exposes users (the non-social butterflies who don't like to share) to all other content that has been curated into the system and has helped garner more social impressions.
  • The majority of our employees come from the BabyBoom/Gen X generation and didn't come of age in the world of social media, which has presented some challenges in user adoption rates.

  • The platform allows companies to deliver content to their employees that helps them grow and engage, which consequently leads to better delivery, making the company's service more efficient. Efficiency generates customer satisfaction.
  • Scheduling posts allows them to set aside just a few hours to schedule all the posts for the week or even the month, creating time to dedicate to other daily tasks.
  • I would also like to highlight the customer support we get from the Sociabble team, as it is very good and efficient.
