You’re on our page because you’re curious about Agorapulse – that’s great! While Sprout Social and Agorapulse are both full-featured social media dashboards, we’d like to think we make social media management easier for teams.
Let us tell you about ourselves and how we compare with Sprout Social.
To start, here is our TL;DR answer to your “Agorapulse v. Sprout” curiosity.
More publishing options including repost/requeue options, queue categories, and an interactive shared calendar
Inbox assistant and saved replies on all plans
Complete Facebook ad comments capturing
Affordable pricing for teams
Support for YouTube (inbox, monitoring, CRM)
Support for Facebook Groups (publishing)
While Sprout provides the ability to queue and schedule your content, we’ve taken publishing a step further.
With Agorapulse, you can schedule a post to repeat in custom increments.
If you like to send evergreen content to a queue, then you’ll love our requeue options. Set your posts to be queued once or requeued over time. You choose how many times you’d like each piece of content to go back in your queue.
To make your queued posts even more organized, use our queue categories to classify your content any way you’d like.
And whether you’re a scheduler or a queuer (or both), you’ll be able to upload a mountain of content at once with our bulk uploader. Upload image posts, link posts, or posts from your favorite RSS feeds.
If you want to share scheduled content with teammates or clients not on your plan, Sprout and Agorapulse both have options. With Sprout, you can send a link to others for them to view upcoming content.
With Agorapulse’s shared calendar option, you can send a link to others to view upcoming content, accept or reject the content, and leave feedback. (We believe that sharing is a two-way street!)
Set rules for your inbox assistant to assign, bookmark, or even hide or delete content that you don’t need in your inbox.
And create saved replies to easily respond to frequently asked questions.
Both the inbox assistant and saved replies are available to all Agorapulse customers, regardless of what plan they’re on.
Sprout only offers these two features for its Advanced ($299/mo/user) plan customers.
Agorapulse allows us to give every person who interacts with our social media channels the time and attention they deserve. No message goes without a response.
We’ve built our inbox so that you’ll never miss a comment on your Facebook posts — whether they’re organic or paid.
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. Other tools, like the one we’re comparing ourselves to here, only use the Graph API of the real time webhook — but this doesn’t provide information on your active campaigns. If you’ve missed some (or many) of your ads’ comments with a tool like that, this is probably why.
With our previous tools, we couldn't keep a check on comments that came on paid social media ads. Agorapulse provided just that and we've stayed on board ever since. 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.
You have enough on your minds as social media managers. Figuring out the real cost of your social media management tool shouldn’t be a task for you to consider. It should just be obvious.
We love the pricing tool over at Seriously Social and we did a calculation for a customer who:
