Percolate: Your BFF for Social Media Management

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Approval workflow feature is simple and easy to use.
  • The calendar feature is great because it allows us to see everything we have approved and ready to go for a particular week or month.
  • Creating and scheduling posts is simple and the interface is easy to use.
  • We have had a lot of trouble with the images previewing correctly when we are in the approval workflow. Even when they are sized down correctly, they take forever to load and we tested several browsers and had the same issues.
  • When we export our log of approved and published posts, there is no way to export the destination link that was included with the post. It exports the percolate permalink but that requires the user to go back into Percolate, wait for the preview to load and THEN you can click and see the destination page. It would be much more efficient to include the destination URL in the reports functionality.

Percolate combines two tools in one and does what others can’t.

Pros and Cons

  • Campaign organization and planning
  • Process management for creative creation
  • Social publishing
  • Social analytics
  • As our internal processes have changed, it’s challenging to go back and rethink how to manage a process with the updates available.
  • Percolate no longer supports social listening.
  • You can export marketing campaigns in PDF format, but not in Word. They need to be converted.

Robust all-in-one tool

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • The asset management library was particularly useful as we could store all content in one place, organized by client and into different category folders, until we were ready to use the assets.
  • Percolate has a seamless and easy-to-use content approval workflow which makes it very easy to send and receive approvals with our clients.
  • Percolate is enterprise-level software with a high price tag to match. It is extremely robust and flexible for large agencies or those managing a lot of accounts with many contributors, but might not be the right fit for smaller agencies.

Percolate Makes Social Media Scheduling Across Teams Easy

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Percolate has a great image editor that makes it easy to create images that are the correct size for social media.
  • Percolate's comment feature makes it easy to communicate with other team members about a post.
  • The Percolate team often updates the product to keep up with changes and new features from social networks.
  • Functionality can sometimes run slow, especially when new features are introduced.
  • Though Percolate tries to keep up, it is occasionally slow to add new features along with Facebook, for example creating carousel image posts.
  • Icons are not intuitive, so there is a learning curve to use all of its functionality.

Horrible Tool, but Cheap

Score 3 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • Calendar scheduling was okay. Not very different from other tools.
  • Analytics exists. Data was hard to find, but there was the ability to create custom metrics.
  • The people at the company seemed nice.
  • Data is a mess. So unreliable. Takes so much time to create a concrete report.
  • There is no ability to export anything. No calendar PDFs, no data Excel sheets, nothing.
  • No paid management functionality.
  • Hated their listening tool abilities relative to other tools I've used.

Percolate makes it easy and organized

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • It has a great visual calendar.
  • Works well for team members of all different job types
  • Really understands the needs of a social publishing platform
  • The file management system is pretty good but there is always room for improvement. Searching for items can be tricky when you have a large library
  • Search in general could be better. I would love to search through social posts I made using the verbage in the post.
  • Sometimes making a simple post requires so many clicks.

Everything a community manager needs to create and manage content.

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • The Percolate Brew feature has a human powered "learning" tool that learns about the kind of content our brand publishes. Using that, it provides tips and sources for new content. Each morning, we receive a list of content from around the world that is relevant to our brand and worth sharing with our own audience.
  • The ability to create one piece of content, and then customize it for our various channels is a real time saver. We can write an article, then easily create a shorter version for Twitter, or a more B2B focussed piece for LinkedIn.
  • Percolate helps our content creators decide when to post content - its posting schedule tool makes sure you don't overpost, but can also intelligently decide on a better time to post something based off past results.
  • A lot of the features in Percolate are very well built, but only provide the bare minimum as features go. Its editorial calendar for example lacks export/import features and its multimedia repository only supports images. In many ways, Percolate is trying very hard to be too much at the same time.
  • At the moment, Percolate lacks user level management. We can add users who need to be moderated before posting, but it is for example not possible to add users just for one specific function (like the multimedia database).
