  • GroSocial does not Gro

    GroSocial Use Cases and Deployment ScopeGroSocial was being used to manage our clients' social media accounts, primarily Facebook.  We used it to build posts, create and change timeline covers, build promotions and contests, and integrate those with our clients' Infusionsoft application.  The contests/promotions integrate into Infusionsoft Campaign Builder, to provide a cohesive lead generation mechanism across all platforms. We also used it to build Twitter backgrounds that matched the Facebook look and feel for the client. We built individual tabs as well for our clients for things such as newsletter sign ups, or other promotions, that integrated directly with Infusionsoft.

    Pros : Integration with Infusionsoft is easy (Infusionsoft purchased GroSocial).Drag and drop building can be used by all skill levels.The contests were effective for lead generation.

    Cons : When Infusionsoft purchased GroSocial it seemed like product development ceased. Many other companies surpassed their abilities.They are very expensive for what they offer. Many other companies now offer better platforms, for far less.When there was an issue (ie in a campaign, or link broke etc) the support team would blame the client first, when in most cases it could be proven to be a software malfunction.Tabs are no longer smart phone friendly. When we stopped using GroSocial they had not

  • What do you like best?

    I love the ease of use and how quickly they respond. I've given them some pretty tight deadlines and they have always come through. Plus, their design work is great!

    What do you dislike?

    I wish they provided a little more training on how to use their system. In all honesty, they could and I just don't know it yet.

    What do you like best?

    We liked that GroSocial had experience working with credit unions and were impressed by the success of their clients. Additionally, we liked that they had developed methodologies and strategies specific to the credit union industry. We were also drawn to their customizable, user friendly, web-based tools that allow us to easily create, implement and analyze promotions.

    What do you dislike?

    Wish that the mobile link for the Facebook app that automatically populates would show up as an image--or allow us to choose an image to map this back to. I know this is a Facebook limitation, but we have another app that does show up as an image for us.

    What do you like best?

    Simplicity of use - the drag and drop builders are great. Straightforward to set up lead capture and contest pages in Facebook to which you can start directing traffic very quickly. Love the out-of-the-box Infusinosoft integration.

    What do you dislike?

    The RSS feeds aren't as slick as they might be. Integration with LinkedIn would be a big enhancement.

  • GroSocial is a helpful tool for anyone who wants to grow their brand online. The application offers many appealing features and the price is reasonable, although a startup or small business operating on a shoestring may be reluctant to sink nearly $30 or more per month into the service initially. Users are given access to highly customizable tools; however a baseline account with a lower monthly fee might be a good way to accommodate those with a tight budget.

  • Be Awesome: Customize and Promote in Social Media

    If you want to empower yourself to conquer social media, once and for all then I highly recommend that you try GroSocial. It works as advertised, and is a very powerful addition to your social media arsenal. GroSocial does so many things that it would be difficult to properly cover them on in the space allowed for this review. If you want to improve the speed at which you get your social media marketing campaigns launched, trust me, GroSocial is for you. So, since it has a 30 day free trial I highly recommend you try it. I cannot give a high enough rating to this cloud-based application.

  • If you are just starting out and don’t know where to start, GroSocial may be the perfect system for you.

    GroSocial is definitely worth checking out to evaluate whether it’s the right solution for your business.  With a 30 day free trial (no credit card required), why not? If you already have an established system in place and/or a team assisting you with social networking, you may be a bit underwhelmed. If you are just starting out and don't know where to start, GroSocial may be the perfect system for you.

  • Since the GroSocial Customizer is free to try out and you don’t need a credit card, we are recommending giving it a go to see if it’s something that can help you create a great looking Facebook page. If you’re in need of some direction as far as how to run a successful social media strategy, their Bootcamp is a solid buy. We’re not sold on the Swap feature that they offer, and would probably take a pass on that because using other people’s updates just doesn’t sound like a good way to go, but you could look into it further if it sounds right to you. If you're not currently using social media to promote your business, either because you didn't know how to get started or because you have had poor performance from it in the past, you should definitely check this out and see if it can help you sort it out and put together a comprehensive and effective strategy.
