Sprout Social

If you have a small social media team and need a way to quickly and easily monitor your owned social media channels, track conversations on your posts and engage with your fans or followers, Sprout works well. It also is an easy way for users to create high-level reports for higher-ups.

If you are managing social media for other businesses, you need AgoraPulse. If you only have your own business and you only have one page per social media platform, I wouldn't spend the money on it.

Pros

  • Creating and scheduling posts across a multitude of platforms.
  • Discovering content through RSS feeds and account feeds
  • Discovering potential profiles to follow and manage your following/followers.
Stephanie MacMillan profile photo
  • Easily and quickly upload as many pieces of content as I want, rather than upload one at a time.
  • The preview feature gives me great confidence that I know exactly what people will see when I post.
  • Customer service is very responsive and quick to help.
  • I can easily perform social listening to follow more than just my own platforms.

Cons

  • Browser compatibility. I use chrome and sometimes the page doesn't fit properly or it gets stuck and won't refresh.
  • The way the pop-ups for scheduling work. Sometimes they look deformed or don't fit on the screen of my full sized laptop. It's odd the way they pop out and don't function properly.
  • The app has a long way to go. It's getting better with every up date, but I wish it was as user-friendly as the website.
Stephanie MacMillan profile photo
  • I would like to be able to post videos to Instagram via AgoraPulse and multiple images.

While I am currently no longer working with the company in which I was employed and utilized Sprout Social, I do know that the company is still utilizing Sprout Social on a daily basis and I do not foresee a time when the subscription would be cancelled.

The decision has been made. It's time to get to work--no steps back. I feel confident this product is well suited to help me make progress. I want to get down business and utilize the functionality of this product to meet my marketing goals. I feel very comfortable with the choice I have made.

As a novice user, I was able to navigate Sprout Social very well, especially in regards to how I was required to use it for the company in which I worked for at the time. It was easy to understand and use. I generally did not have any problems.

Make sure you do it all the way. Do not break it into phases. Pour yourself a coffee, start it in the morning and you'll be done before you finish that coffee.

Alternatives Considered

The intuitive use, price, visual reporting and ability to easily expand plans and features is a total win
Valentin Vesa profile photo
To be quite honest, we tried Agorapulse first and liked it so much we decided to go with Agorapulse almost immediately. Ease of use, accessible and easily obtainable analytics were the selling points.Tried Hootsuite but it really did not match up in comparison. Did not like the analytics, and the multiple column social engagement panel was difficult to navigate and hard to learn.We wanted to go with Sprout Social, but it was too expensive for our budget.

Return on Investment

  • Increased employee efficiency through scheduling.
  • Lack of reporting data has created decreased employee efficiency because manual reports are needed weekly to supplement Sprout reporting.
  • We do not use the platform as much for engagement due to brand restrictions, so some of Sprouts shining achievements are not beneficial to us in particular.
Stephanie Spear profile photo
  • Scheduling a month's worth of posts for a single client would take 6-7 hours without AgoraPulse. Now we're down to about 90 minutes!
  • AgoraPulse allows me to take on 3-4 times the number of clients I'd otherwise be able to handle.
