Its very user friendly and easy to maintain and update. Because our company doesn't have a dedicated social media guru, its great to utilize as many users can go in and adjust should they see an error or want a change.
I gave Pagemodo a solid try but it just wasn't a good tool. There are a lot of great alternatives out there. I deactivated our Pagemodo account and began using ShortStack to achieve our goal. I cannot say enough GOOD things about ShortStack! If you are considering using Pagemodo, use ShortStack instead... you can thank me later :)
I hoped Pagemodo would enable me (the non-coding Community Manager) to build and manage custom tabs without assistance from our Development team. Unfortunately, to build a beautiful custom tab that is consistent with your brand identity, you will need to use CSS. Additionally, I saw a number of tech bugs, most of which were never resolved (for example I would enter text into an allotted box, but it wouldn't appear on my page). Customer support provided no help.
Pagemodo provides templates for you to use when making a Facebook contest or giveaway. A lot of other programs require you to enter a coded template or form. Simply customize the pictures and description of your contest/giveaway and Pagemodo does the rest!
Pagemodo is extremely easy to use and makes it simple for you to track any contest or giveaway entries. It notifies you when you have received a new entry and then allows you to export all data onto an Excel sheet once the contest is over.
The types of user engagement activities you can perform with Pagemodo are very limited. It seems to be specifically designed for either contests/giveaways/special promotions/discount codes you'd like to share with your customers. So if I wanted to host a poll for my Facebook fans, I wouldn't be able to do so through Pagemodo.
Pagemodo doesn't accommodate the various types of social media channels. It's specifically designed for Facebook and can really only be used through that. If your goal isn't to attract new Facebook followers or engage the followers you already have, then Pagemodo isn't for you.
Although it's nice that Pagemodo already has pre-made templates, it somewhat limits your ability to customize your forms or tabs.
I've used Pagemodo to run various contests through Facebook and it has provided me with an easy way to really engage our followers. I've obtained over 300+ emails from our recent Halloween contest and have increased our Facebook "likes" by 15%.
I'd rather use a program that'll allows me to perform a variety of user engagement functions across a variety of social media channels. Pagemodo is extremely limited in a lot of ways and would better serve a start-up company trying to gain more exposure on Facebook.
Which social media channels are you trying to increase traffic for? Give me some examples of what types of user engagement activities you'd like to perform. How good are you with coding templates? Do you have someone in your company who's proficient with this? How much personalization would you like to add into all of your campaigns?
