Overall Satisfaction with AgoraPulse

AgoraPulse is being used by myself and soon to be clients I feel will benefit from using the software. AgoraPulse helps me to be productive and efficient with my workflow. The simple review feature ensures I never miss a message or mention on any of the profiles i manage.

AgoraPulse also helps me to stay focused on engaging and posting content rather then consuming content. Other social media management tools can be overwhelming to my clients but I am confident the beauty and simplicity of AgoraPulse won't be too much to take in.
  • Simple to understand layout
  • Clear visual one click export analytics straight into a presentation
  • Review feature that makes sure you never miss a message or mention.
  • The apps feature where you can run Facebook quiz, contest and personality test to increase engagement, add value and farm for data.
  • The mobile app that you can manage your profile on is useful when you are out of the office.
  • The ability to label follower or fans as ambassadors and/or influencers.
  • You can't use LinkedIn.
  • You can't post direct to Instagram, although i do understand this is a fault on Instagram's side.
  • A feature where you can put in a target audience demographic information and be given the top 5 used hashtags.
  • The ability to see other content your audience are engaging with divided into written, visual and video content
  • The ability to see what content you should curate for a certain audience.
1 - I am a Social Media consultant who looks after my own brand and some clients. Analytics is a important feature where i can download data to report to clients which are visual and easy to understand.
  • Positive impact on my productivity and efficiency.
  • The ability to run contests and stand out from the rest is a great feature.
  • The simplicity of the one button export analytics which download as a presentation. I can then send to clients or take them through the results.
AgoraPulse outshines all other software with its friendly simple but powerful user interface. They still have features i would love to see like the option to add all platforms like Pinterest and LinkedIn, but they are heading in the right direction. The review comments and mentions stands out not to mention looking up the history of your inbox and comments conversations with others along with the data you have on them. The mobile app is also simple to use.

Hootsuite is a powerful tool but with its ugly un-user-friendly interface and pointless tab upon tab features it makes the workflow cumbersome at times. AgoraPulse is just so much more beautiful and simple. Plus AgoraPulse is a fairly new tool which has great leadership who seem to be heading in the right direction.

Sprout Social is a great tool, very simple and visual at the same time. The biggest difference between AgoraPulse is the price. Sprout Social starts at $59 which is steep for the features. But AgoraPulse more reasonable price of $29. Sprout Social does have beautiful analytics but for me AguraPulse has the engagement crown.
Simply because it is the most efficient and easy to use on the market. Also as it is a new platform they can only add better features. The ability for new users to pick up and run with this software is rewarding for me to recommend to clients without hand holding. The pricing is also the most affordable for the features they currently have for offer.
The number of profiles a person is managing and on what platforms is an important question. Will they need to be able to use the software on mobile while out and about?
