Social media is a perfect platform for storytelling, and there are few other products that have the same capacity for interesting storytelling as wine does. Social media can provide your business with a way to grow faster and to reach your audience in a more meaningful way; not to mention, it’s a great platform for growing your following, your engagement and to generate more traffic to your website and more conversions.
Social media marketing, though, can be a bit daunting; it takes time to build a following and to start seeing the results you’re after. But, with clear goals in mind and a social media strategy in place, it can be done.
To make your job easier, become more productive, and start getting results faster, try a social media dashboard to help you manage your mentions, monitor for more opportunities and to share content and updates with your audience easier and faster.
Check out the infographic below to see what the top 5 social media management tools are and use a cost comparison tool to find the perfect for you; the results are from genuine customer reviews from popular software review platform, G2Crowd, and they include some of the lesser known tools, like Agorapulse or Sendible, as well as quite famous tools like Buffer and Hootsuite, with surprising results:

Excellent write up and perfect for your blog Kata. I have heard of AP but just haven’t used it, little too expensive for my small biz. Heard of but haven’t used Sendible… but used the other 3. Sprout is expensive and has some great means but not as good as I would like and Hootsuite is affordable and has a lot of functionality but very glitchy and Buffer I tried using before and didn’t stick with and have been using it more and more… all the last 3 I use for different reasons… GREAT explanation and loved the infographic!
Hi Kristen, thanks so much for your comment, glad you liked the post! I quite agree regarding Hootsuite, although it’s one of the most well-known tools of its kind and it’s affordable, it does have its drawbacks. Buffer is great for improving your social media posting and your engagement, but not so much for managing your social media as a whole. Personally, I use Agorapulse for managing my social media – hope you find the perfect tool for your needs as well! Thanks again:)
Great images to help us understand the difference between dashboards to help with Social Media. On my way to check these out! When I was reading your blog the music started automatically. Wonderful podcast!
Thanks, yes, Agorapulse has done a great infographic…and Lilach wrote a concise article. Thank you for listening to the podcast. 🙂
Hi Candess, thanks so much for your comment, glad you liked the post:) Hope you find the perfect social media management tool to help make your life easier!
Interesting how highly rated is Agora Pulse. I don’t know much about this, and will check out.
Hi Robin, thanks for leaving a comment:) Personally, I love using Agorapulse because it makes it very easy to manage busy social media profiles!
The infographic makes it so clear. I hadn’t even heard of Agora Pulse. I’m currently using Hootsuite and Buffer.
Nice that you liked the infographic…I do not use Agorapulse so far either…I use two other tools for programming and analysis etc.
Hi Tamuria, thanks so much for leaving a comment:) I’ve tried and loved most of these tools – now I use Agorapulse for managing my social media, but I’ve also used Hootsuite for managing and Buffer for posting updates.
It is nice to know these statistics. I have played around with a couple and have not tried the others. There is always something new in social media!
Thanks, yes, I haven’t tried all of them either…but good to know which ones seem to give the best results.
Hi Lorii, thanks so much for your comment:) So true, there’s always a new tool around the corner, it’s difficult keeping up with all them – but, I love trying to:)
A couple I have not heard of and the stats help a great deal too. Thank you for sharing this and helping us to be more social and to have some new ways do that.
Hi Teresa, thanks so much for leaving a comment:) Glad you liked the post, hope you got a good tool out of it:)
That’s a great comparison but I feel that it is a bit incomplete. What about MeetEdgar? It would be nice to compare all of them and not go in the direction of AP. Still great information which allows people to see how paying attention to your metrics really helps you put your efforts towards what your audience wants.
Hi there, thanks so much for leaving a comment:) Well, I believe they only picked the top rated tools on G2Crowd – plus, MeetEdgar is more of a scheduling tool, rather than a social media management tool, although I personally love it and use it quite a bit! Thanks again for your comment:)
Thanks for the inforgraphic. It certainly explains why I need to switch from Hootsuitel
