Looking For A Good Meet Edgar Alternative?

We’ve been evaluating social media management tools for years. Let us help you in your search.

You’re on our page because you’re curious about Agorapulse – cool! Why don’t we start with a Agorapulse v. Edgar comparison of our features and pricing. 


Here we go!

1. Agorapulse is truly an all-in-one solution.

Our solution includes publishing, replying, listening, reporting, and CRM capabilities (plus much more) in every plan we offer.

Unlike Edgar, we don’t require a completely separate tool in order to reply to the comments you’ve received on the posts you’ve published. You’ll have your Inbox, your Fans and Followers, and your Reports all in one place for one affordable price.

Our Inbox works a lot like email -- allowing you to effectively work through all your important conversations in one, clean stream. You can even set up moderation rules to keep away spam like auto-direct messages or assign messages with particular words to a teammate. This makes you even more focused on breezing through your messages and hitting Inbox Zero.

Agorapulse has helped me scale my business! As my client base continues to grow, Agorapulse enables me to keep four eyes on their social media 24/7! Monitoring my clients’ social media channels is a huge part of what I do on a daily basis thus having one dashboard has simplified this incredibly important task, freeing up time to go out and get more business.

2. We offer scheduling options that will blow you away.

Edgar was built for publishing, but we think we do it better. All personal feelings aside, we offer tons more scheduling options. 

With Agorapulse, you can schedule or queue a post to publish a set amount of times or repeat in custom increments.

Sadly, Edgar doesn’t these scheduling must-haves.

And yes, we have Queue Categories.

Whether you schedule your posts one-by-one or via bulk upload, you can make sure your social media content stays organized and evenly distributed by assigning categories to your queue calendar.

Bulk upload images to your queue. Add more variety to your queues by shuffling them. Reign your queues in by pressing pause. You’re in control.

Requeueing has helped us get more out of each post and ensure our followers are always coming across our best content. Agorapulse has really made our job much easier and our social accounts much better!

3. Our unlimited reports will tell you how your posts are doing.

If you are a good social media manager, you have data to prove your worth on social.

That’s why we include reporting for all of our customers.

Our unlimited, downloadable reports for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn come with every subscription. Our reports are available on the Web and as customizable PowerPoint slides. In addition, you can download your Content Reports via CSV so that you can view your breakdown of engagement on each post.

Agorapulse has completely transformed our work with social media clients. Without a doubt, its built-in reports are the best on the market. Our clients often mention how detailed, clear, and comprehensive they are. Highly recommended!

4. You'll get teamwork functions to keep everyone on track.

Working by yourself isn’t very “social,” is it? That’s why Agorapulse helps you work with others with ease.

Our social media management tool gives you tons of options to delegate, communicate, and collaborate.

If you’re staring at an inbox or monitored item and don’t know how to respond, assign it with a custom note to a teammate or client with better skills to answer. Spot a bit of good news on Twitter? Share the happiness with your colleague.

As an agency handling several social media accounts for clients, we needed a tool that made our daily work more effective and allowed our team members to work together more closely. With Agorapulse, we're able to share access to multiple social media accounts with everyone on our team very easily. Being able to assign comments and messages to others was not possible before, so that has made our work much more efficient.

5. With Agorapulse CRM functionality, you don’t need another tool for your customer management.

Often the biggest hassle of social media management is juggling a closet full of apps that work with your social channels.

Giving you the ability to send out messages without being able to reply to others or know who they are isn’t how we do social.

Our inbox allows you to manage and assign comments, replies. You can even reply on Facebook and Twitter through messaging!

With our moderation rules, you can:

  • Auto-assign comments to the appropriate team member
  • Auto-tag or bookmark comments associated with a campaign
  • Auto-hide or delete comments that may ruin your reputation

Check out how to use moderation rules.

Our customer relationship management (CRM) tool gives you data out-of-the-box so you can immediately better engage your audience or support your clients.

With Agorapulse, you can say goodbye to the added clutter and expense of additional CRM tool.

Agorapulse allows us to automatically moderate comments on our ads with features like flagging certain keywords for fast response and auto-hiding profanity & troll comments. Additionally, it is a much faster option to manage review of customer questions and comments than what is provided by Facebook. We highly recommend it!

6. We gather your Facebook and Instagram ad comments.

Agorapulse has our Inbox so that you’ll never miss a comment on your Facebook or Instagram posts — whether they’re organic or paid. (As a kind reminder, Edgar doesn’t capture comments on ANY posts.)

Our connection to both Facebook’s Marketing API and Graph API means that comments are in sync 100% of the time.

If you know what an API is, let me get geekier with you. What makes our sync system unique is a combination of simultaneous calls to both the Marketing API (aka the Ads API) AND the Graph API. 

If you’re an Edgar user, you most likely rely on native Facebook to manage comments on their sponsored posts. Not only is that an extra step, but with the way Facebook delivers comments, you have to sift through each and every ad to see if any new comments have been posted. This tedious work often leaves negative comments out in the open — which can ruin your reputation. Ugh!

Again, we serve you ALL of your ad comments directly in your Social Inbox. Simply filter by ad comments, and BAM! they’re ALL there without crazy clickthroughs or fear that you might have missed something.

To find out how an agency like NewFire Media likes dark post commenting with Agorapulse, read this post.

Ashish Mehta

We have a very active Facebook brand page of 2.7 million fans which receives about 80,000+ comments every month. Agorapulse helps us quickly identify and address negative comments on social media, which is crucial.

7. Agorapulse is more affordable for large teams and agencies who value ROI.

Say you use Edgar to the max and apply it to 25 accounts. And you have five people on your team.

You pay $49/mo just for scheduling, right?

In order for you to get:

  • An inbox to receive comments
  • Unlimited analytics / reports
  • Teamwork functionality
  • CRM capabilities
  • A way to capture comments on your Facebook and Instagram ads

You’d have to additionally one of the big name management tools out there. To meet the 25 social profiles and 5 team members, you’d have to get Hootsuite Business (or Sprout Social Professional plus add-ons).

Let’s put that all together.

Say you’re keen on Hootsuite. You’ll need the Hootsuite Business plan to get all those profiles and accounts. That will run you $599/mo. Add that to Edgar ($49/mo), and you’ll be paying $648 a month.

If you’re leaning toward Sprout Social, you’ll need the Professional plan multiplied by 5 to accommodate your users and an extra $375/mo to get your profiles from 10 to 25. The Sprout cost there will be $1,120/mo. Along with your Edgar cost, that combo will run you $1,169 per month.

Here they are side by side.

To keep things simple, you could just use one tool like Agorapulse — which will run you just $224/mo.

Shall we add that to our handy table?
