Crowdbooster is designed to optimize and measure the success of Twitter and Facebook posts. Visualizations make it easy to see how many times a tweet has been retweeted, and how many potential impressions have resulted. It also shows how many likes, comments, and shares a Facebook post has received. Based on the historical performance of posts, it suggests optimal times of day for sending out new posts.

This is not a true measure of "twitter footprint" – since the “signal to noise” ratio in Twitter is very low. There was no system in place to track "clicked links" for links embedded in tweets and/or facebook wall posts. Hootsuite did a good job of this – but only for twitter. The list of recommended times to tweet were always "on the hour" (i.e. 10 a.m, 1 p.m.). Never were the times ever at "half past the hour" etc. An independent study that I did on my own using Google Analytics (and campaign links using google's URL builder) helped me determine that my optimal "Tweet time" during the week is 3:30 p.m. ET. More importantly, the recommended times seemed to be roughly the same on the weekends - which I find strange given that social media behavior does change on the weekends. Occasionally, in my facebook ranked table of "loyal fans", I would see people in there that had not "liked" or "commented" on a post for months at a stretch and the "look back" period of the table was only around 7 days or so. Hence, I occasionally had to question the accuracy of that table.,It has helped with customer acquisition through Twitter. Helped quickly assess loyal fans for a reward system - which in turn boosts customer loyalty and helped alleviate churn. Helped inform timing of tweets and facebook fanpage wall posts.,5,5

  • Timed social media posts - Crowdbooster provides the opportunity to schedule social media posts allowing you to work on other important social media tasks.
  • Simply beautiful tracking - There are millions of ways to measure social media impact. Crowdbooster offers the most important and relevant measurements in simplified charts..
  • Great UI - Crappy UI = crappy experience. Crowdbooster's UI is easy to navigate. It won't take months to learn where all the buttons are.
  • Limited to Twitter and Facebook - Pinterest and Google+ should be added, the women and business segments shouldn't be ignored.
Social media measurements and tools shouldn't be complicated. If you know how to use Facebook and Twitter, then Crowdbooster shouldn't be hard to use. Crowdbooster is a great tool to use for Twitter and Facebook.

  • More networks covered.
First I would tell them I have used many Social Media tools and this one was the most simple and easy to understand. I would tell them they could increase ROI very easy and increase Internet visibility through using the metrics provided by Crowdbooster. I would also say I guarantee they will be able to increase their reach through the platform and build offline relations which will lead to better customer service or sales. In addition the graphics were designed with easy, quick analysis in mind.

Before recommending Crowdbooster, I'd want to know what goals they hope to accomplish with the software. Then I would want them to specifically identify what types of metrics would be most useful to their program. If they specifically need to report out on how many people in a certain location they reached, this isn't the right fit. If they are using other tools, there may be duplication. However, if they are currently using more budget-friendly solutions or just getting started with a new program, Crowdbooster is a perfect fit. It will help you to grow your program and is flexible enough to accommodate your needs.

  • CSV download could have more data
  • More options for showing data visually.
I have actually already recommended this internally in my organization. The quality, type, and amount of data it provides makes it a very easy sell for companies, as the cost to enter is low. It's priced so a company can easily try it out, and once they do, I doubt they won't renew it.

1. What actionable analytics do you provide?

2. Do the tracking systems of Crowdbooster examine weekend social media behavior differently?

Crowdbooster: "The saturated market of Social Analytics Tools - what meets the mark and what doesn't"

  • Comparison analysis of Twitter followers over time.
  • Seeing real-time reporting.
  • Targeted recommendations.
  • Understanding the algorithm behind campaign effectiveness.
  • Understanding the algorithm behind engagement - what data drives these reports and how is it measurable?
Crowdbooster is a great tool, but I look for the solution that gives me the most bang for my buck. There is a saturated market of paid tools, when I can get a free version that offers the same benefit.

User Review: "Crowdbooster Provides Minimal Metrics"

  • Tracks impressions.
  • Tracks follower growth.
  • Allows users to schedule posts and edit easily.
  • Limited metrics.
  • Scheduling posts for Facebook.
Crowdbooster makes it easy to schedule posts, but the metrics provided are not all inclusive. It also doesn't tie in with Google Analytics. As a company, we measure analytics from the web sources and social and Crowdbooster is only used for social.

Crowdbooster Review: "Effective, inexpensive tool for SMB"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
  • We were looking for an easy and affordable way to schedule and publish social media posts, get guidance on when to post, engage with our most engaged and most influential followers, and analyze the reach of our posts. Crowdbooster checks all of these boxes.
  • Manage multiple accounts very easily
  • Find the most optimal time (as calculated by Crowdbooster) to schedule posts to maximize reach
  • Find & engage with out biggest social advocates
  • Doesn't seem like an ideal tool for enterprise social media management. t does not have enterprise-level features like CRM & web analytics integration, and role-based permissions.
We have fairly basic social media requirements (1 Twitter account, 2 Facebook pages). Crowdbooster is certainly not the most robust social media management tool, but for the price and ease-of-use, it does the job for us.

Crowdbooster Review: "Great for pinpointing top influencers."

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User

  • Incredibly useful to know top supporters in an objective way – based on engagement. This is not easy to get. Many tools will provide high-level data, but Crowdbooster lets us know at the individual level who is working hardest to promote us on social channels.
  • Even the free tool is quite powerful – the main limitation being the number of social accounts we can monitor
  • Easy to use. Does what I want it to do. The user interface is not super busy and cluttered. Makes the product quite intuitive.
  • Targeted recommendations. This is a great feature. The software proactively suggests what you should be doing to reach top influencers, create more resonant content etc. It doesn't just display a constantly shifting stream of data, but filters it to tell us what to do.
  • Exporting data is not intuitive.
