But I switched to Agorapulse a few years ago Now and it has been my No 1 choice for social media management since that time. You may read about some of the attribute comparisons between Agorapulse and other platforms .

12 Reasons Why Agorapulse Kick Ass For Social Media Direction
Oh and Before I begin… I must mention that I don’t always use EVERY single function at precisely the same time. I do use a couple of different tools. However, I really like that Agorapulse has a package of features that really do cover the majority of your social media advertising needs.
In fact, I Have been slowly moving lots of the attributes I use on other tools around to Agorapulse. It’s difficult not to wish to remain”in” this instrument as it’s so user-friendly and fun to use. I have also taken on a brand ambassador role with Agorapulse considering writing this post. The post was updated but my genuine love for this particular tool and the fact that I can not do without it in my toolbox has not changed.
The Agorapulse Staff And Team
Let us begin here. Because with this Remainder of the things I love about Agorapulse imply nothing.
Customer support is at the core of business at Agorapulse. If their customers are happy and using their tool in the best possible way, (and they get results), then everything falls right into place. Their staff focuses more.
Agorapulse also listens About what works, what needs improving and what they are able to build next. Thus, you are not a customer but a part of a business. In reality, lots of the current features that I am going to talk about came from opinions and client recommendations.
Caring about customers Is why Agorapulse has shot up the rankings as among the social media management programs with all the best reviews and customer satisfaction. Vintage Icon Pack
I’ve outlined all 12 reasons why I like Agorapulse Below, but let us begin with a video overview of their current (awesome) update — then I will break down the critical features. There’s a lot to like.
Impressive, right? Let’s jump in and take a Closer look at the features of Agorapulse.
Easy Publishing And Scheduling
Now that We’ve covered off to the all-important Purpose of participation (which is the reason why I adore Agorapulse the most), let us take a peek at scheduling and posting.
Just as a publishing Tool goes, Agorapulse is one of the easiest I’ve used. It’s a cinch to post to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram (plus they have the newest auto-posting function for Instagram as a formal Instagram Partner).
You can easily customise the articles to suit each platform. As it is super intuitive to use, I don’t even need to go into detail about it . You, (like me) should be able to work out how to schedule a simple article, readily and without instruction.
Scheduling is simple with Agorapulse! I can.
- Publish instantly
- Queue my post (more of this later)
- Schedule the post in the future for time and a particular date.
It’s also easy to schedule the article to Go out on different platforms, on different times, while being optimised for all those platforms (altering the text or picture size).
1 feature I particularly like is the capability to Kind”@” and then the title of the user and Agorapulse will bring up the possible account you are able to pick from on Twitter and Facebook. See how Agorapulse suggests extra accounts once I begin entering their business name.
This helps you to tag profiles and pages fast And saves you time searching to add.
You can also schedule to LinkedIn.
Easily print to LinkedIn with Agorapulse
We’ll get to Instagram at a moment, but for today, Please be aware that publishing your content and scheduling in advance on Agorapulse is super simple! And like I said, you can also now auto-post into Instagram with Agorapulse since they are an official partner and also have access to that new feature via Instagram’s API.
Oh and they have a pretty slick calendar view That means you are able to see all of your posts ready to go across the programs.
And it’s colour coded for folks like me That level 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 a few other social media management applications, Agorapulse mentions and has 1 pillar for me to react to notifications.
To me, that’s”one task” to finish each day. And it is really almost enjoyable to clean out my inbox.
It is concentrated, it is easy and it is easy to Use, and that means you won’t miss a mention!
- Your accounts Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
- Your inbox (where all the articles you need to examine or respond to can be found). Your inbox items are emphasized as things To Inspection for every platform.
- Tabs for Publishing, Listening, Fans and Followers, and Reports.
- An area for participation where you participate and respond via replies, retweets or likes.
You can also click on a user’s profile to expand it. You will then see all of the info that you want — directly within Agorapulse (including any prior interactions).
Expand your history to be seen by an individual profile!
If you have a just one click and you will see History with the conversations and the user you have had before. This means that you may give the people the ideal attention at the perfect time.
Let’s break this down a little more…
I DMs I’ve and can easily see how many cites In my inbox. When I am looking at this tweet from Ravi, I can see just how many tweets that I have to review and I can review or respond to his tweet. It’s the same for other channels that are social — your entire engagement is in one area.
Never miss a mention on your inbox!
I know my inbox Is not empty in this screenshot. When I’ve finished writing this post, but it will be! I don’t always get to tune zero daily but I get there often enough to LOVE that”Congratulations” display!
It’s easy to inspect all of your mentions. You can Even filter by mention or message type as follows.
Then only review the posts you’ve responded to or dealt with. Once you respond to a specific post, it is marked as reviewed.
Or you click on a post replying.
I can select To reply (or reply from DM), review the post, assign it to get someone else (more of that later), retweet it or”just like” the article — all from within the exact same dashboard area on Agorapulse.
Choose how you will engage or process the mention or message.
If I change to Instagram it’s similar. I am able to view all my recent participation, I see more information or can enlarge on posts. I can even follow and unfollow. Vintage Icon Pack
Easily switch between programs and accounts to Keep up with participation!
Being able to see your comments ALL are handy on Where you generally can find the past 50 mentions on your own feed. In case you’ve got a large number of followers it is not possible to keep up with mentions. Agorapulse changes all that which is enormous for influencers and brands.
Excited? You can engage with All your Mentions when you are a little late getting to them.
And of course, I can also engage by Switching to Facebook too.
Note. You’re able to engage on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube but not LinkedIn at this stage (you can just print to LinkedIn.
Agorapulse keeps all my engagement in 1 place.
Ahhhh, exhale and pour yourself a glass of wine!
Get To Know Your Best Advocates
When it comes to social media it’s not about Collecting followers. It is about participating with them.
As I shared above, Agorapulse allows me to Easily track and engage with my best advocates employing the”Fans and Followers” feature. From in your Twitter accounts, you click on”Fans and Followers” then filter your search under”All”,”Favorites” or”Top” users according to below.
In this case I hunted on my top 100 users under “TOP”.
With favorites you can add a star to profiles to “favorite” folks you would like to follow carefully in Agorapulse. This way, you have their posts accessible in their own thread! Now it’s easy retweet their articles and to engage together!
You will also see rankings for the following in only About every profile perspective on Agorapulse.

In the case of Nicky, She’s all 3 with regard to my @sociallysorted Twitter accounts. Nicky is someone I should be participating with (and I do!) .
On Facebook Function shows you who has mentioned your webpage, and how many times they have liked and commented or sent you a message, as well as their final interaction with you. It is also possible to ban them from your page from inside Agorapulse, although I expect that happens rarely!
On Instagram you Will see who’s left comments on your article, their total followers/followed counts and you are able to follow or unfollow from inside Agorapulse.
You are given a clear picture of who by these metrics Follows you, promotes you and participates with you the most.

Moderation On Autopilot — Say Goodbye To Spam!
This function is like Heaven to me. Agorapulse explains it as being in a position to”tag, rename, conceal, delete or delegate articles… while you sleep”. By using Moderation Rules, all.
I like this function on Twitter, where the Auto-thankyous, Auto-engagements and Auto-DMs push me bat-shizz crazy.
With Agorapulse I can deal with them Ways.
- So I really don’t see most of them at the first 17, I can 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 filter my feed by DMs or Mentions. I typically go to DMs and clear them out fairly fast. To be honest I get numerous DMs that are spam these days, it’s hard not to miss the good ones. Automobile DMs have made DMs useless to me personally, which is a shame.
Filtering and moderation functions for all accounts Types but I mainly use it for Twitter to”markers as reviewed” all the Auto DMs which come through saying”thanks for following”.
It filters out The auto-DMs, and yes I am sad that it catches some actual ones as well, however you have to pick your battles!
Along with the moderation principles are not about spam. You can use them in many ways to
- Filter content out to be responded to. So you can respond to them afterwards — Perhaps you wish to have the posts featuring a specific hashtag to be labeled in a manner.
- Filter out those individuals that are SUPER engaged and post all the time so that you don’t have to observe every Tweet at Agorapulse — only repond to them or in Twitter.
- So you can categorize create custom tags such as remarks and tweets and research on these later!
- Create custom searches for keywords that you need to monitor
- If you have one of the”big” level accounts (best for small agencies) you’ll have posts delegated to a group member (see 11 below).
Fundamentally the moderation function is another Bonus motive to consider Agorapulse for social media management.
A Killer Mobile App
If you are out and around And you will need to clear your inbox, the more Agorapulse app is something that you will love.
It is available 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’s so easy to review and procedure messages and mentions. Vintage Icon Pack
Agorapulse’s queue feature Permits You to publish Your content onto a replicated, evergreen basis utilizing smart categories — much like the way in that Meet Edgar allows you to set articles to be scheduled at certain times daily based on certain categories. I use it to Twitter and Facebook.
If you Need to and are using a tool Reduce costs, then contemplate Agorapulse’s evergreen content attribute rather (and you have the bonus of all the additional Agorapulse features).
Here are a Couple of things to know about using Agorapulse for content that is replicated.
Setting Up Your Queue Categories Is Super Easy.
With Agorapulse name and it is super simple to set up Your queue catogories, and add your schedule for posts to be published on. Then the procedure for adding content is extremely intuitive. As you can see, it is a slick dash (the consumer experience is amazing ).
Firstly, you need to name and put up your content Categories (all colour-coded and ready for action!) .
Setting up your classes is easy… and color-coded!
Once you’ve set up your classes, all you have to Do is add times like this, to the program.
Then I need to add amazing content to each of those category queues!
Easily Preview Content For Each Social Network.
Agorapulse provides You a preview of the article, to show you how it’ll look on the newsfeed of this platform when you publish it, you choose.
Pick to Schedule your articles to a time slot, or add every article to your choice’s Queue. This part is easy, as you’ve already set your queue up in Step one. Your Queue, full of articles (and ready to go) will appear something like this.
Once a post is published, It Is Going to return to the Bottom of the queue, waiting to be queued again.
Apart from utilizing the queue operate for repeated Content, you might choose to either.
- Add a post to the schedule as normal or
- Replicate your article a certain number of times (once you do so you may set the minimum number of times between repetitions of the post). Note you could accomplish this for Facebook but you need to be aware of the Twitter rules from content — see below.
You Can Pause The Queue (Quickly, And At Any Time).
I Really like That Agorapulse has included a pause button. For some reason it’s not fantastic timing to post or if there’s a catastrophe, you can easily pause the queue with one click.
Maybe You want to pause a queue of articles At Christmas… it is simple with the pause button!
Meet Edgar has a pause button and it was something That I really wished to see in almost any instrument which I chose to replace it with. I asked Agorapulse to include one plus they did (they always listen never be reluctant to mention suggestions or give feedback!) .
Use The Queue Function To Announce Facebook Lives
The function could be for announcing handy Events like a Facebook Live (if you hold them to a weekly or regular basis). Share your articles that must go out in a queue at a certain time of the week. I would recommend a bit varies the articles to keep the material fresh and much more eye-catching.
Twitter And Agorapulse
Twitter posted about new Guidelines or”rules” for repeated or replicate content in February 2018. You can read about it here.
The principles Aren’t Actually new as discussed in this post by Agorapulse’s CEO Emeric Ernoult. It’s just that now they are making a point of saying they will enforce them.
Basically this mean that we can Post articles that is similar or equal . This also applies to replicate content.
Lets’s take a look at how you can still post to Twitter with Agorapulse whilst complying with the rules, so you obey the rules once you draft a picture like you to post to Twitter.
Note that you can elect to queue or program Your article to Twitter. Here’s where we need to consider Twitter’s rules and comply with them. You can do this a couple ways with Agorapulse.
Agorapulse Blocks Ability To Post Duplicate Content On Twitter Accounts
If you look In the image above, you will realize that Agorapulse blocks my ability to post replicate content to over a few of my Twitter accounts. The tool recognises that I’m posting to Twitter! This helps make sure the guidelines of Twitter are adhered to by me.
Content Demo Tips
Here is the way I use Agorapulse to save me loads of Time and remain out of Twitter Jail. Together with Agorapulse, you currently have two options for replicating a hyperlink.
- You can choose to Schedule your post once (or more than once in the event that you vary it). Simply add your post, to do so, then choose the time and date you would like it to head at. If it’ll be published more than once, you will want to edit the replicated or replicate tweets so they’re not”duplicate” content. A lot of that is below.
- More than with variations or you can opt to Queue your post once. Agorapulse advocates this. When you’re queueing content for Twitter, make certain that you don’t select the option to”re-queue multiple times.” You can still use this attribute for other platforms, but this is where you’d end up in breach of the rules of Twitter. When I decide to do it this way, I’m sure it’s a unique post, then add it on the top or bottom of the queue (ie I select”queue alongside” or”queue last”).
I use Advanced Scheduling to Write 1 tweet, then set that tweet. Below, I’ve set it to article than every 7 Days, as well as 6 repetitions. Just don’t forget to edit the repeats!
Once that the 6 x repeats are scheduled by me, I could easily see Those posts in my schedule. I would go in and change them to text, emojis, pictures or hashtags. Do this don’t do it or you will forget.
Note. It’s Ok when you edit your articles if the link remains the same. It’s the text that you have to change each time.
I’d been utilizing Advanced Scheduling in this manner For a while today to post new content well ahead of the new”rules” have been announced. I love to mix up this and it’s better for involvement.
Don’t forget Bulk Upload! Agorapulse also permits you to bulk upload around some 100 parts of content by using a pre-populated CSV file. This includes your photographs and also can include content from any RSS feed! You might use this save hours and to curate content from other websites!
What’s Coming For Queued Content?
The team at Agorapulse is functioning on a Tool to make people the variants of tweets, so we can still get out content quickly and play fine with Twitter. This is new functionality that will enable us to replicate our tweet variations all in the one interface. I’m awaiting it. I’m convinced it will be a timesaver! Vintage Icon Pack
Team Communication and Delegation
As Simple as Agorapulse is to use, you Do not need to do all the checking and involvement yourself… it is a fantasy for delegation.
If you are a member of Agorapulse’s Large level Accounts (starting at $199 a month), then it’s possible to upgrade to staff approval whereby you are able to assign tasks and accept messages around multiple team members.
This is very good for customer service brilliance.
This feature is a good, if you are a growing team You to upgrade to.

Make sure that you don’t forget to engage if You autopost….posting is merely part of the procedure. You have to follow up on comments and answers.
I believe that Agorapulse is the tool Provides both scheduling and auto-scheduling to Instagram as well as reporting and monitoring… so it’s a win-win-win in case you’ve got a business account. Instagram tools that give you reports are a distinct fee!
All you need To do is.
- Download the Agorapulse app and hook your Instagram account up.
- On Your app or desktop, schedule your Instagram post (add photo and caption) then schedule the date and time that you need to print it. You may opt to switch on Auto-scheduling or you’ll be able to use the app post the image and to connect through to Instagram.
- If you post will get a notification through your program when it is time to post. Simply click”Publish” and you’ll be changed through to the Instagram program.
- Post as you would ordinarily on Instagram. Your copy/description is going to be duplicated and you need to paste it into the Instagram program. Check you have hashtags additional as necessary and you are ready to go!
I am impressed that Agorapulse has Added another feature that would require us to utilize another tool and the feature makes it even better. Bringing these tools together saves time AND money and is an integral reason why I love Agorapulse for Social Media Management.
