Oh and Before I start… I must mention that I do not always use each and every function in the same moment. I do use a couple of tools. However, I really like that Agorapulse has a suite of features that do cover most of your social media marketing needs.
In fact, I Have been slowly moving lots of the attributes I use on other programs around to Agorapulse. It is difficult not to wish to remain”in” this instrument since it is so user-friendly and fun to use. I have also taken on a brand ambassador role with Agorapulse considering writing this article. The article was updated but my genuine love with this tool and the fact I can’t do without it in my arsenal hasn’t changed.
The Agorapulse Staff And Team
Let us start here. Because with this, the Remainder of the things that I adore about Agorapulse mean nothing.
Customer support is at the core of company at Agorapulse. If their customers are happy and using their instrument in the finest possible manner, (and they receive results), then everything falls right into place. Their team focuses more.
Agorapulse also stinks About what works, what they can build next and what needs improving. So, you are not a client but a part of a business. In reality, many of the features I am about to talk about came out of customer recommendations and feedback.

Impressive, right? Let’s jump in and take a Closer look at the qualities of Agorapulse.
Easy Publishing And Scheduling
Now that We’ve covered off to the all-important Function of participation (which is why I love Agorapulse the most), let’s take a look at posting and scheduling.
As far as a publishing Tool goes, Agorapulse is among the easiest I have used. It’s a breeze to post to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram (plus they have the new auto-posting function for Instagram as an official Instagram Partner).
You can easily customise the articles to match each platform. As it’s super intuitive to use, I don’t even need to go into detail about it . You, (like me) should have the ability to work out how to program an easy article, readily and without education.
Scheduling is simple with Agorapulse! I could.
- Publish instantly
- Queue my post (more of that later)
- Schedule the post later on for time and a particular date.
It’s also easy to schedule the Exact Same article to Go out on different platforms, on various times, while being optimized for all those platforms (altering the text or picture size).
One feature I particularly like is the capability Type”@” and the title of the consumer and Agorapulse will bring up the possible account you are able to pick from on Twitter and Facebook. See how Agorapulse suggests accounts once I start entering their company name.
This helps you to tag profiles and pages fast And saves you time searching to include.
You can also schedule to LinkedIn.
Easily print to LinkedIn with Agorapulse
We’ll get to Instagram at a moment, but for today, Please know that publishing your content and scheduling beforehand on Agorapulse is super simple! And like I said, it is also possible to now auto-post into Instagram using Agorapulse since they are an official partner and also have access to this new feature via Instagram’s API.
Oh and they have a slick calendar view also, That means you can see all your posts ready to go across the programs.
And it is color coded for folks like me That extra amount of organisation that is visual. Winning!
There is nothing better than seeing this.
This is what I see on a regular basis with Agorapulse.
Unlike some other social media management applications, Agorapulse has 1 pillar for me to react to mentions and notifications.
To me, that is”one task” to complete every day. And it’s really almost enjoyable to clean out my inbox.
It’s focused, it’s simple and it is super simple to Use, so you won’t miss a mention!
- Your accounts Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
- Your inbox (where all the articles you need to review or respond to are available ). Your inbox things are highlighted as items To Inspection for every platform.
- Tabs for Reports, Publishing, Fans and Followers, and Listening.
- An area for participation where you respond and engage via retweets likes or replies.
You can also click on a user’s profile to expand it. You will then see all the information that you want — right within Agorapulse (including any prior interactions).
Expand your history to be seen by an individual profile!
Only one click and you will see if you have a History with the consumer and the conversations you have had before. This means you may give the ideal people the right attention at the perfect moment.
Let’s break this down a little more…
I can see how many mentions and DMs I’ve In my inbox. When I am looking at this tweet from Ravi, I can see how many tweets I must review and that I can review or react to his tweet. It’s the exact same for other channels that are societal — all of your participation is in 1 area.
Never skip a mention in your inbox!
I know my inbox Isn’t empty in this screenshot. When I’ve finished writing this article but it’s going to be! I do not always get to inbox zero daily but I get there often enough to LOVE that”Congratulations” screen!
It’s easy to check all your mentions. You can Filter by message or cite type as follows.
Then review the posts you have replied to or dealt with. Once a post is replied to by you, it is automatically marked as reviewed.
Or you click on a place to review it without replying.
In the example from Nicky, I can select To answer (or reply from DM), examine the article, delegate it for someone else (more of that later), retweet it or”just like” the post — all from within precisely the exact same dashboard area on Agorapulse.
Choose how the mention will engage or procedure or message.
If I switch to Instagram it’s similar. I am able to see all my current participation, I see information about an individual or will expand on posts. I unfollow and can also follow. Google Translate
Easily switch between programs and accounts to Keep up with engagement!
Being able to see your comments ALL are handy on Instagram, where you can only find the past 50 mentions on your feed. It’s impossible to maintain with mentions, In case you’ve got a number of followers. Agorapulse changes all that which is enormous for brands and influencers.
Excited? You Can now engage with ALL of your Mentions when you are getting to them.
And I could easily engage by Switching to Facebook.
Note. You can engage on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube although maybe not LinkedIn at this stage (you can just print to LinkedIn.
Agorapulse keeps all of my engagement in 1 area.
Ahhhh, exhale and pour yourself a glass of wine!
Get To Know Your Best Advocates
When it comes to social media it is not about Collecting followers. It’s about participating with them.
Like I shared above, Agorapulse allows me to Easily monitor and participate with my very best advocates using the”Fans and Followers” attribute. From in your Twitter accounts, you click “Fans and Followers” then filter your search under”All”,”Favorites” or”Top” users according to below.
In this case I searched on my top 100 users under “TOP”.
You can add a celebrity to “favorite” folks that you want to follow carefully in Agorapulse. This way, you have their articles readily accessible in their own thread! It’s easy to engage together and retweet their articles!
You’ll also see rankings for your following in only About every profile perspective on Agorapulse.

- Ambassador — this person posted links to your website or has retweeted you.
- Influencer — this individual is often retweeted (more than 20 times throughout the last 30 days).
In the case of Nicky, She’s all 3 with respect to my @sociallysorted Twitter account. Nicky is someone I ought to be engaging with (and I do!) .
On this, Facebook Function shows you who has said your webpage, and the number of times they’ve enjoyed and commented or delivered a message, in addition to their last interaction with you. It is also possible to ban them from within Agorapulse, but I expect that happens rarely!
On Instagram you Will see who’s left comments in your post, their total followers/followed counts and you can trace or unfollow from inside Agorapulse.
You are given a clear picture of who by these basic metrics Follows you, promotes you and participates with you the most.
- Setup custom classes of followers within Agorapulse’s dashboard

- Add notes.

Nearly everyone I know who uses Agorapulse to get Social media direction raves about the reports. They are pretty special;o-RRB-
Moderation On Autopilot — Say Goodbye To Spam!
This function is similar to Heaven to me. Agorapulse explains it as being able to”tag, bookmark, hide, delete or delegate content… while you sleep”. By using Moderation Rules all.
I love this role on Twitter, in which the Auto-thankyous, Auto-engagements and Auto-DMs drive me bat-shizz crazy.
With Agorapulse I can deal with them Ways.
- Therefore that I really don’t see most of them at the first 17, I will filter my DMs. This is where the magic occurs. You can set up filters to weed out”most” of those lousy DMs. Not all (sigh) but most.
- I can then filter my feed by Mentions or even DMs. Clear them out quickly and I visit DMs. To be honest I get so many DMs which are spam nowadays, it’s hard not to miss the excellent ones. Automobile DMs have made DMs useless to me personally, which is a shame.
Filtering and moderation functions for all account Types but I mostly use it for Twitter to”markers as reviewed” all the Auto DMs that come through saying”thanks to after”.
It filters out The auto-DMs, and yes I’m sad that it grabs some actual ones also, but you’ve got to pick your battles!
And the moderation principles are not just about spam. You can use them in several ways to
- Filter out content to be responded to. Maybe you want to have the posts featuring a hashtag to be tagged in a way that is specific — so you’re able to respond to them.
- Filter out those people that are SUPER engaged and post all the time so that you don’t need to observe every Tweet at Agorapulse — just repond to them occasionally or natively in Twitter.
- Create custom tags such as remarks and tweets so it is possible to categorize and research on these!
- Create customized searches for keywords which you want to track
- If you have one of those”large” level accounts (greatest for small agencies) you can have posts delegated to a group member (see 11 below).
Fundamentally the moderation function is another Bonus motive to think about Agorapulse for social media management.
A Killer Mobile App
If you are about and out And you need to clear your inbox, the more Agorapulse app is.
It is accessible on iOS and Android and it is super slick to use. I often prefer using the program vs desktop to process my inbox as it is really easy to review and process messages and mentions. Google Translate
Agorapulse’s lineup feature allows you to publish Your articles onto a repeated, evergreen basis using intelligent categories — a lot like the way in that Meet Edgar allows you to set articles to be scheduled at particular times of day based on particular categories. It is used by me to Facebook and Twitter.
If you are currently using a tool and want to Cut costs, then consider Agorapulse’s evergreen content attribute instead (and you have the bonus of all of the additional Agorapulse features).
Here are a Couple of things Agorapulse for , content that is queued that is repeated.
Setting Your Queue Categories Up Is Super Easy.
With Agorapulse it is super easy to set up and title Your queue add your schedule for articles to be printed on, and catogories. Then the procedure for adding content is extremely intuitive. As you can see, it’s a slick dashboard (the user experience is amazing ).
Firstly, set up your articles and you need to name Categories (all colour-coded and prepared for action!) .
Setting up your categories is simple… and color-coded!
All you have to, When You’ve set up your classes Do is add instances such as this, to the schedule.
Then I need to add content to each of the category queues!
Easily Preview Content For Every Social Network.
Agorapulse gives You a preview of the article, to explain to you how it’ll appear on the newsfeed of the platform when you print it you choose.
Choose to Schedule your articles to a specific time slot, or include each article to your choice’s Queue. This component is simple, as you’ve already set up your queue in Step one. Your Queue, full of articles (and ready to go) will appear something like this.
After a post is published, it will return to the Bottom of the queue, waiting to be queued again.
Apart from using the function for perennial Content, you can choose to .
- Add a post to the schedule as usual or
- Replicate your article a specific number of times (when you do so you may set the minimum number of times between repetitions of the post). Note that you can accomplish this for Facebook but you need to know about the Twitter rules against duplicate content — see below.
You Can Pause The Queue (Quickly, And At Any Time).
I love that Agorapulse has included a pause button. If a natural catastrophe is or it is not fantastic time to post, you can pause the queue.
Perhaps you want to pause a lineup of articles At Christmas… it’s easy with the pause button!
Meet it had been something and Edgar includes a pause button That I really wished to see in any instrument which I chose to replace it with. I requested Agorapulse to include one and they did (they constantly listen — never be reluctant to mention tips or give opinions!) .
Use The Queue Function
The function can be for announcing useful Events such as a Facebook Live (if you hold them on a weekly or regular basis). Share your content that must go out each week at a certain time of the week in a queue. I would recommend the articles a little vary to keep the material fresh and.
This works with Twitter but with for Facebook Need to check at some”changes” to Twitter’s terms of usage…. Google Translate
Twitter And Agorapulse
Twitter posted about fresh Guidelines or”rules” for repeated or replicate content in February 2018. You may read about it here.
The principles Aren’t Fresh as discussed by Agorapulse’s CEO Emeric Ernoult. It is just that they’re currently making a point of saying they will apply them.
Fundamentally this mean that we can no longer Simultaneously post articles that is equal or similar to numerous accounts. This also applies to replicate content.
Lets’s take a look at how you can post to Twitter with Agorapulse while complying with all the principles, so you comply with the rules, when you draft a picture like you to post to Twitter.
Notice You Could choose to schedule or queue Your article to Twitter. Here is where we have to consider the rules of Twitter and comply with them. You can do this a couple of ways with Agorapulse.
Agorapulse Blocks Ability To Post Duplicate Content To Twitter Accounts
If you look At the picture above, you’ll see that Agorapulse blocks my ability to place replicate content to over one of my Twitter accounts. The instrument recognises that I am posting to Twitter! This helps ensure that I stick to the guidelines of Twitter.
Content Demo Tips
This is how I utilize Agorapulse to save me loads of Time and remain from Twitter Jail. With Agorapulse, you have two options for replicating a link.
- You can opt to Schedule your post once (or more than once if you vary it). Just add your post to do this, then choose the date and time you want it to go out out at. If it’ll be printed more than once, you will need to edit the repeated or duplicate tweets so that they’re not”replicate” content. More of this is below.
- More than once with variants or It is possible to choose to Queue your article once. Agorapulse recommends this. When you are queueing articles for Twitter, make certain you don’t choose the option to”re-queue multiple times.” You can use this attribute for other platforms, however this is where you’d wind up in violation of Twitter’s rules. While I choose to do it this way, I’m sure it’s a special post, then add it on the top or bottom of the queue (ie I choose”queue alongside” or”queue last”).
I use Advanced Scheduling to Publish one tweet, and set that tweet to replicate a certain number of occasions. Below, I have set it to post than every 7 Days, as well as 6 repetitions. Just don’t forget to edit the repeats!
I can see once I program the 6 x repeats Those posts in my schedule. I’d go in and change them to emojis new text, pictures or hashtags. Do this immediately — do not do it later or you will forget.
Note. It is Okay when you edit your posts if the connection stays the same. It is the text that you have to change each time.
I had been using Advanced Scheduling in this way For a while now to post new content — well ahead of the new”rules” have been announced. I love to mix up this and it’s better for engagement.
Do not forget Bulk Upload! Agorapulse also allows you to bulk upload up to a 100 pieces of content by using a pre-populated CSV file. This also can include content and includes your photos! You might also use this to curate articles and save hours!
What’s Coming To Queued Content?
The staff at Agorapulse is working on a Tool to produce people the variants of tweets, so we play nice and can still get out content quickly. This is new functionality that will let us replicate our tweet variants all in the one interface. I am awaiting it. I’m sure it will be a timesaver! Google Translate
