An easy way to aggregate google analytics, Bing Analytics, AdWords results, webmaster (search console) data, and the custom pieces I need to add every month -- all in one place in a repeatable way. This has taken a full day's work for client reports down to about 2-3 hours doing client reports. I also use the Site Audit as a pre-sales/upsell tool to show clients that there is work that can be done and how I've improved their SEO. They also have reporting on email metrics from all of the top email providers. Additionally, they have a keyword manager and competitor manager so you can keep track of how your doing compared to your competitors.

Pros :

  • Easy to use.
  • If you sign up for an agency account, you can setup branded, scheduled reports.
  • The reports are not simply PDFs... they are live / interactive reports for clients. Integration with all major analytics, PPC, and other sources, including integration with Google Webmaster Tools (Search Console).
  • Social media integration also (if you have admin access to the social media profile).
  • Social media include not only Facebook and Twitter but also LinkedIn and YouTube stats.
  • You can order content from the linked content provider (costs money) if you want to have everything in one place.
  • URLs for reports are permanent, but can represent live data (depending on how its setup).
  • You could send a report to a client and reuse that same URL every period and have the data just update live.
  • Adding additional web properties is very simple, and you can copy report templates from other properties.

Cons :

  • Need to reset GWT authentication regularly... but this is not their fault... Google keeps changing things.
  • Custom section of client report is slightly glitchy - when I add a new URL, it overwrites my description from my saved template... but workable.

It is a Facebook and Twitter manager which can also works as a CRM solution. You can see all the updates and activity on Facebook and Twitter from a single place and in a single view. The posts and tweets can be seen directly from Agorapulse and can be filtered based on predefined rules. This allows avoiding missing of critical messages or complaints which need immediate attention. These messages can be automatically converted into a ticket and

Pros :

  • Almost all the Facebook applications like contest, polls, quizzes, shop can be set up and managed using the Agorapulse and can be accessed and managed via mobile application as well.
  • It even allows scheduling the actions based on certain events and keywords posted in the messages on Facebook. This is saving lot of time and effort by reducing the manual intervention.
  • Twitter can be managed in a similar manner to Facebook.
  • Team management is also supported where one can assign different roles and permissions to various team members.
  • The content to be posted can be scheduled in advance.
  • It even helps segmenting the customers based on demographics or other dimensions so that they can be targeted and evaluated effectively for updates and promotions. This is very useful if you are a global enterprise and have to push updates to different audience at the time they are most likely to view.
  • It gives you complete freedom to arrive at monetary value of a particular promotion or a user.
  • All the data captured using various Facebook applications is tracked and can be analyzed to better understand and target the relevant users.
  • High-quality, detailed reports are present in Agorapulse with an option to export them to Powerpoint.

Cons :

  • No support is available for other social media platforms like LinkedIn, Instagram, Youtube, Google+, etc.
  • The content can’t be posted on Instagram via Agorapulse.
  • It also lacks a feature to suggest what content which should be shared with which audience and at what time so as to have the maximum views.
  • Tagging a person in a message or a response is not possible from within Agorapulse.

I use it for my personal business and for clients I manage. Bang for the buck I can't complain at all. I can use the app on my phone when I am traveling for work or traveling for fun. Because it's easy to work with and a great price I consult start-up businesses on how to use it because it's so helpful.

Pros :

  • Low investment cost.
  • You can schedule as many or as few of posts that you like in advance saving you time in daily, weekly and monthly posting.
  • Hootsuite covers all the major social platforms where as others for a similar price did not.
  • They notify you if an API needs to be updated through a social network, sometimes due to password changes or social platform code changes.
  • It's easy to train small businesses on. It even gives you the twitter character limit which is nice.

Cons :

  • None really, expect 30 minutes to an hour of practicing it to get used to the system. No big deal.

    HootSuite is a fine tool for people that simply want to find a better way to spend their social media time. Unfortunately, it doesn’t allow you to do much else, so for me, it raises the question as to why? There are a very few brands out there that can afford to simply stay active on social media and engage with their community and have success without doing much else marketing work. Typically, people that want to grow their businesses have to take a more multifaceted approach. Sure, have social media is great, but to what end do you make that effort? What is the best case scenario? Someone falls in love with your Facebook posts so much that they decide to buy your goods or pay for your services? Most likely, that isn’t how it will go. It is much more likely that they will Like your post and move on, leaving all your hard work to waste. By taking a more strategic approach and linking all of your marketing efforts to ensure that they all drive towards the same goal, you will see an increase in overall production. Sure, getting people to Like your posts is good, but that doesn’t make a sell. What you need to be really focused on is driving value for your business, and the way you can do that is by leveraging and creating valuable content. Use your social networks to share this content, but have the content live on your website itself, that way people have to come to your website to view it. This enables them to be exposed to more of your material while also giving you the opportunity to gate some of the more valuable things. For instance, you can talk lightly about a topic in a blog article. This can be freely accessible to anyone. Then you can elaborate on that topic for a downloadable offer like a white paper or an eBook. That way you will gain their contact information and be able to market to them moving forward.

    Pros :

    • Easy to use.
    • Can schedule out posts for the future.
    • Makes it easy to post to a lot of networks at once.

    Cons :

    • This doesn't actually help you solve your problem of growing your business.
    • I might prefer an all in one tool like HubSpot.
