Modeled along the lines of HootSuite, this newer entry to the social media management market is strong on easy analytics – among many other features. It’s not pricey, either (unlike suites like MediaMiser, which starts at $495.00 per month). You can sign up for a free account, but a paid account with more options runs at only $15.00 per month at time of writing.
MarketMeSuite has all the power search capability of IceRocket, allows for geotargeting and allows you to schedule and manage your profile across multiple social networks. Follow and Unfollow “highly-targeted” influencers, log in from anywhere (it’s cloud-based) – and monitor your brand while engaging with your target audience – all from within MarketMeSuite’s easy interface.
Another relatively new tracking suite whose price ranges from free to $30.00 per month for “Hobbyist” or “Small Business.” The latter allows you to monitor your Facebook Page and three competitors, while setting goals and alerts.
It allows you to see your top followers and track across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Tumblr. You can track your feedback rate and ensure your content is being viewed by your chosen audience, as well as finding out exactly when your content is making the most impact.
Socialmention provides a “real-time” social media search and analysis for your name or any other keyword or hashtag you’d like to explore. (Monitor your competition, as well as your own profiles!)
You will see Top Hashtags in your search, sources of these mentions, posts, Top Users, Top Keywords; whether or not mentions are positive, negative or neutral; the number of mentions – and you can sort and filter your results.
You can download your results in a .CSV file or get email alerts.
Best of all, Socialmention is fast and free.
