Today you are using AgoraPulse and you want to switch to a Made In France tool 🇫🇷 and/or easier to use. This article will allow you to compare these two tools and choose the one that will suit you better!
For starters, both tools have French language support. However, it should be noted that Swello support is available by chat, email and even phone, regardless of the subscription you have signed up for. On the Agorapulse side, only email support is available in the first subscription level. To have support equal to the one available on Swello, it will be necessary to upgrade to the next subscription level. The invoice amount will be higher on Agorapulse to get the same level of support!
On Agorapulse, all subscriptions offer access to the same features (monitoring, programming, analysis, community management...) with a different number of social profiles and users depending on the subscription level. It will not be possible to choose only the features that interest you. On Swello's side, in order to let you choose the features you need for your activity and to allow you to subscribe to a package that perfectly suits your needs, the monitoring part is not automatically integrated in our different subscriptions.
The Veille Swello initially integrates public collections (18 in number, they cover topics such as Finance, Politics, Marketing, Lifestyle...). These dense and qualitative public collections represent an undeniable simplicity and time saving: from your first connection you benefit from an adapted and quickly configured monitoring dashboard. They can then be completed by private collections (unlimited) with the addition of an RSS feed URL, an Instagram hashtag, a Youtube, Twitter and Facebook profile.
Regarding scheduling, both tools have similar features such as Post preview tool or character counter adapted according to the chosen social network. On Swello and Agorapulse, it is also possible to access an editorial calendar to facilitate the sharing of your work and the eventual validation of your Tweets/Posts proposals. However, please note that Agorapulse applies an additional fee for each additional shared editorial calendar (19€ HT/additional calendar), which is not the case on Swello!
In addition to these essential features, Swello offers you many other exclusive features. Thanks to the Swello Pixel image editor, customize your visuals directly from your programming tool: create templates, add filters, add logos, resize... time saving is guaranteed! 🔥
In addition to the image editor the partnerships between Swello and Unsplash & Giphy allow access to qualitative and original content directly from the scheduling tool. In addition to efficient media management, Swello supports you by advising you when creating your Tweets/Posts with the Quality Grade. An indicative grade ranging from the letter E to the letter A allowing you to quickly master the codes of each social network.
Your Quality Grade depends on your own statistics, so it accompanies you in a personalized way in your social media strategy. 🚀
The statistics part is very important so that you can generate quality reports at the end of the month, quarter or year. 📈 With Swello or Agorapulse, you will have complete statistics that will allow you to make your reports very easily. However for both tools, the data retention period is not identical depending on the subscriptions. With Swello you keep your data for 2 years (for the 29.9€/month plan) while with Agorapulse you will have to subscribe to the 159€/month plan to have the same data retention. Moreover, on both tools these data will be accompanied by graphs to make them more visual and you will be able to export all these statistics in PDF and .CSV or even you can download a single graph in PNG format. Finally, on both tools, you can compare your stats with your competition, at Swello it will be on Twitter and at Agorapulse on Facebook. However, for the latter the number of competitors to analyze is limited to 1 at Agorapulse (you will have to add 5€ HT / competitors), while it is once again unlimited at Swello. 😃
From a pricing point of view, Swello is aimed at all communicators. The tool has two general public subscriptions (Medium and Large) and subscriptions adapted to companies corresponding 100% to your needs in order to leave you the freedom to manage your service according to your expectations and objectives. On the Agorapulse side, the first plan is €79/month and the features are restricted depending on the subscription. 💸
In conclusion, You now have the choice between two social network management platforms Made in France! 🇫🇷 Both of them will make you save time anyway, it will all depend on your needs, your desires and the strategy you want to deploy on social networks. On the one hand, Agorapulse offers tiered pricing with restricted access on each feature depending on the subscription. On the other hand, Swello will be able to adapt to your desires and needs according to the rate and service you want thanks to its modular pricing grid and its constantly evolving platform. 😍
