They built their platform largely on contests. They still do a fairly good job on these

VistaCreate (ex- Crello)
VistaCreate is well suited for creating engaging content for users of all age groups. There are beautiful, modern templates and a variety of shapes and animations to choose from. Most importantly, the cost is inexpensive, and you get that bang for your buck. An attractive feature is the ability to upload music, or choose from the library, to add to your content piece. It's quite clever, as this allows the reader to engage in more than one sense e.g., animated content versus static text. The reader hears music, and the content is animated and visually appealing. This allows keywords to be highlighted. The probability of communicating your message in this manner is increased.

Cons
Infusionsoft
  • When Infusionsoft purchased GroSocial it seemed like product development ceased. Many other companies surpassed their abilities.
  • They are very expensive for what they offer. Many other companies now offer better platforms, for far less.
  • When there was an issue (ie in a campaign, or link broke etc) the support team would blame the client first, when in most cases it could be proven to be a software malfunction.
  • Tabs are no longer smart phone friendly. When we stopped using GroSocial they had not set up the redirect link at that time. This may have changed now.
  • When you manage multiple accounts, your client could stop your access to their account. They could then stop paying for the service, and their tabs would still be live. GroSocial is the only one who could disable the tabs. It was not automatic.

GroSocial quite simply does not stack up to the competition. They are years behind in development. We have moved all our clients to other platforms.

VistaCreate (ex- Crello)
In my view, VistaCreate is easier to navigate and design content. The templates are fun and appealing. The availability of Shutterstock photos is endless. The version history is saved so that work is not lost. There is a brand feature that automatically selects color themes to support branding. It is easy to export content to your desired file type.
