Social media is not just about sending out tweets and posts. True social media is about building meaningful relationships with your marketplace.
That’s why all our plans include publishing in addition to engaging and listening.
Our inbox captures comments sent to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube profiles.
To save time getting through all your inboxes’ comments and messages, we offer the following functions for all plans:
Learn more about our easy-to-navigate inbox.
We also provide greater listening capabilities than you were used to with Buffer Reply.
Not only do we provide with a way to create and monitor saved searches on Twitter, we also let you build saved searches for Instagram and YouTube.
In addition, our dashboard displays a chronological listing of when your brand is mentioned on public Instagram and Facebook posts.
These listening features allow you to engage in conversations that aren’t necessarily on your own social profiles.
No two social media strategies are alike, so with Agorapulse, we’ve made sure your scheduling options are super flexible.
Organize and publish your evergreen content with our requeue and queue categories. These features avoid the manual process in Buffer of pressing “Share Again” for each piece of previous content you want to republish.
Use our repeat scheduling options for posts that need to go out on specific times and days.
View all these requeued and scheduled posts on your publishing calendar. This calendar will also show you all your published, assigned, and to-approve posts.
In addition to publishing, engaging, and listening, all of our plans include unlimited, downloadable reports. No need to add another subscription like Buffer Analyze!
Want metrics on your audience growth, brand awareness, engagement, and team performance?
How about a deep dive into the success of the content you published over a given period?
Perfect — we got it all covered for you in your Agorapulse dashboard. These metrics are available for all our plans.
“We had been using Loomly and Buffer. I looked at Crunchbase for competitors to Hootsuite. We tried out a number of tools and Agorapulse was the only one with an interface that was straightforward and easy for our clients to understand.”
We all need support―whether you’re a new user learning a tool or a seasoned user who wants to know more about what a tool offers.
And we know your time is valuable. That’s why we offer an average response time of 20 minutes. Three of our four plans offer live chat — a feature that Buffer doesn’t currently offer.
"We had used Buffer before but we would never pay what they charge for the package we needed. Ultimately, Agorapulse provided everything we were looking for at a price we could afford. Social listening was also included which was a great benefit."
Agorapulse is a great alternative not only to Buffer but to many other big social media management tools. Look how our average user rating compares on this TrustRadius chart.
