"Fantastic product"

What do you like best?

Simple & efficient, great for beginners. This is perfect for someone without lots of time to spend managing Facebook, and it keeps it looking professional even when I don't always have the professional eye. I love that it tells me my highest performing posts and suggests when to use them again. The metrics for data and engagement and reach are so informative and are vital for a nonprofit.

What do you dislike?

Can only control Facebook, no other apps. I wish I had the same platform for Instagram or Twitter, but for now we're able to reach a large audience on Facebook.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All nonprofits should be using ActionSprout, regardless if you have an established & experienced social media manager. It's incredibly efficient, fun to use, and makes a difference in your online presence. It's easy to learn and will make a difference in your online presence. Because it's such a time saver, I encourage nonprofits to invest in Action Sprout because the money you spend on paper marketing/advertising can be saved and used more efficiently with Action Sprout.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While I've only been using it a short while, managing our nonprofit's Facebook page has become so much faster, simpler, and more efficient with ActionSprout. This saves me time for other important tasks that are vital to the success of the organization.

"Great experience "

What do you like best?

Able to utilize more than one social media at a time. I did not have to log in to multiple accounts to publish images or information, could all be accessed together. My favorite component to this software was the ability to save & schedule posts for a later time. The feedback was very effective, learning why a post received more or less views.

What do you dislike?

This program is user friendly however customer service could be more helpful. Sometimes concerns /questions had taken awhile to be resolved. But with the advanced options I was able to resolve most issues through the trouble shoot option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this tool, as it saves times and allows for more people to be alerted and contacted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working on building more clientele, advertising the company, posting more nutrition blogs, information to followers within email and social media. This program has allowed for me to reach more people.

"ActionSprout - great for social action & surfacing content, not much else"

What do you like best?

Love the ability to create actions native to Facebook, so people don't have to be sent outside Facebook to do things like make a phone call, sign a petition, RSVP to an event, etc. Unlike Facebook's Events, you can download info on who RSVP'd really easily.

Also love the ability to track ally organizations and see what of their content is performing well, so we can amplify it by sharing on our channels. Ability to track performance of our own content as useful too, but there isn't as much in terms of reporting as we would like for that.

What do you dislike?

Kind of pricey, and if you aren't using it for the actions, it probably isn't worth it.

If you want to have your followers take action on social media, it's one of the easiest plug and play options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want social media tracking & reports, this isn't the best, but if you want social media action, this should be your go-to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows your Facebook followers to easily and seamlessly take actions like signing a petition, RSVP'ing to an event, and making a phone call without leaving the Facebook environment and with all their info downloadable for you to use.

"Very good for beginners to the social media game."

What do you like best?

ActionSprout is aimed at non-profits. It makes it easy to curate and post content to your Facebook pages. If you have just been thrown into the social media pool, this is a good way to learn to dog paddle. Scheduling and posting become very easy tasks, something you can get done on Monday for the rest of the week. Best of all for non-profits, basic functionality is FREE!

What do you dislike?

It only allows you to post what others have posted. Creating original posts is in the works, I understand, but for now, it's basically you promoting other people/organization's posts. Which of course can lead to synergy if you have non-profit partners in your list. But you still have to manually post stuff you created that you want to "go viral".

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping our FB news feed lively and fresh.

"Strongly integrated with Facebook"

What do you like best?

The actionsprout team is incredibly responsive and offers tons of free wisdom and advice. Tons of functionality for things like sign-ups, petitions, contests, donations, etc.

What do you dislike?

Some of what you can do in Actionsprout you can do better in Facebook - asking for donations is a good example. Their default notification emails are also over-the-top.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very well integrated with Facebook, strong choice for follower-engagement, and has nice automated insights if you’re a one-person shop and need some software to help with scheduling and repeating and analyzing posts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run petition campaigns through actionsprout to gather audience email addresses. This is tough to do directly on Facebook, while Actionsprout provides significant functionality, integrates well with your FB profile, and makes output of collected emails easy.

"Great for non-profit fundraising"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use and very easy to get others to use - especially Facebook frame feature

What do you dislike?

Requires a lot of troubleshooting on the behalf of the organizer, so maybe not the most intuitive for people who aren't good at computers, would stick to using ActionSprout for younger organizations and audiences

Recommendations to others considering the product

A unique product in that it's one of a few software products that targets the non-profit sector specifically and corners that market - can be a helpful tool for grassroots or local organizations

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy, free, effective social media marketing at little to no cost to the user at the base level

"ActionSprout: A uniquely useful tool "

What do you like best?

I love the Sproutlet feature. We like to curate for our audience, but we also want to make it easy for them to take action. With the Sproutlet tool, you can make almost any link on the web actionable while still adding value by curating content.

What do you dislike?

I wish the tagging feature worked better in the Inspiration section. I want to keep an eye out for the highest-performing content on Upworthy's page for instance, but only as it relates to climate change and the environment. I thought I could do that, but the functionality isn't great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try a demo of the goal plan after trying the free version. The support staff is timely and more than willing to answer any questions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's easier than ever for me to find content to post to our pages, and it's helped us get our actions in front of a broader audience (and with a higher CTR).

"Great"

What do you like best?

ActionSprout makes it easy to get Facebook fans on your email list. It works very well for that.

What do you dislike?

There have been a lot of changes on pricing, tools, etc. Most changes have been good but consistency would be better. Also, would be nice to clone actions so you can reuse the same settings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I don't know of anything better for the function it serves.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps for building an email list and also tracking what content is doing well on Facebook.
