Social Media Management App Goes Mobile – Agorapulse
I don’t know about you but I am wide-eyed and wondered yet again at what happens in the world of social media. We engage in one channel and suddenly everything changes in all the other channels. What am I talking about? I have been using Blab quite a bit over the past few weeks, the social conferencing tool. It has changed everything for me inside of Twitter. How can Blab change everything inside of Twitter? That is how all this social media tends to work. Blab uses twitter as a crowd sourcing call to action to bring followers into Blab. So inside of Blab people are tweeting out constantly. I haven’t concentrated on Twitter nearly as much as I should, you know the feeling, yet another channel! Suddenly, I am getting tweeted to death. My followers are growing on Twitter and I recognize I need to engage more on Twitter, now more than ever.
Fortunately, the same time this explosion of activity is happening on my Twitter account, a better tool for helping me manage my social media accounts on my mobile phone is released. Agorapulse is a social media management app for multiple social platforms such as, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
I have shown you Agorapulse previously. Think of it as an email app that helps you manage your interactions on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It is a good tool on the desktop, but I found it to be very useful on their new mobile app. They have released the mobile app in iOS and android.
I have tried several apps for managing Twitter on my mobile phone, none of them have had the nice features I have found in Agorapulse. You can take a look here, this is mirrored just like on the desktop. I have Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on the app.

Notice the 99+ notifications inside of Twitter! Many are duplicate but finding the actual messages that need my attention is becoming the true challenge. This is where Agorapulse is really starting to work for me.

This latest notification is from Amy over at Savvy Sexy Social in regards to a speaking engagement we have coming up. I need to respond in some way and acknowledge this tweet. With this interface, I can tap on the message and do a quick reply. I take advantage of the voice recognition, which is both on the Android and iOS devices. You can see my quick reply being made on Agorapulse mobile here:

So now the response has been sent, the cool thing is when I go back into the inbox it will be highlighted a different color so I can quickly identify that I have already responded. As I continued to scroll through, many of the notifications were duplicate posts or retweets, those didn’t need my direct response. So I simply can swipe left and check them off as seen here:

Social Media Management with Agorapulse Mobile - Cool like the other side of the pillow!Click To Tweet Now that I have someone assisting me with some of my social media content, I can assign a particular tweet to a team member so she can follow up on something. Or if she is working in my account and comes across something that I need to pay attention to, she can assign it to me. It is so easy to tap and assign:

Once I assign it to a team member, they will receive a notification in their Agorapulse app so they can handle it. This is a powerful tool and allows us to blast through a much larger amount of notifications. The beauty here, I can take 5 minutes while waiting for an appointment, or other spare time in my day. No longer do I need to login to my social platforms, I can handle it all quickly and efficiently on my mobile phone.
There is a 2-week free trial that will allow you to try it out on each platform, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Their price is right in the range of other social media management apps. Ranging from $29-$199 monthly depending on the need and size of your organization.
