What do you like best?
The functionality is intuitive, and the GaggleAmp team is always available and acts as our partner throughout or program. It's very easy to manage, and as a "member," it's a no-brainer. With a click you can share content that appears organic. Members of our Gaggle have provided excellent feedback about how they have been able to become more comfortable in social media and have received increased engagement on their personal accounts by taking advantage of this program.
What do you dislike?
One thing I have heard from a number of our members is that they wish there was a way to opt out of receiving sharing notifications for networks that you don't use. In other words, if a member doesn't use Facebook, they still receive all notifications of Facebook content when its available.
Recommendations to others considering the product
This is a great product for social amplification, especially if you're starting out and aren't sure if you want to commit to the larger enterprise platforms out there. I appreciate the partnership we share with GaggleAmp -- they check in with us and we discuss our efforts. I always leave the meetings having learned something new and feeling energized about our own social program.
I highly recommend taking advantage of the free 30-day trial to see if it will work for you. The rep was really great to ensure that we had a plan in place to make the trial as successful as possible, and those efforts didn't end with our trial. Our rep is almost an extension of our team when it comes to the amplification side of our social media initiatives.
