Best Value Facebook App Platform?

1 replies
I'm trying to select a Facebook App Platform for a Page for a Retail business. We want to do things like coupons, sweepstakes, Featured Product Showcase. Intention is to generate sales, increase fans/likes, build mailing list, add tab for YouTube videos (although tight integration with Aweber or MailChimp is not a requirement).

It's a small business but we want something that is stable with a decent company standing behind it.

I know Involver and Wildfire are two of the major players but their pricing models are a bit on the high-end.

The two I seemed to have zeroed in on are SocialAppsHQ and North Social. North Social looks like a more professional solution as their demo videos are decent quality whereas SocialAppsHQ you can tell is an India-based company based on the heavy accent in their less professional demo videos.

These companies all seem to offer similar apps. I know you can pull a lot (if not all of this stuff) off for free but don't mind paying a modest amount to accelerate/simplify implementation and mangement. Something that might scale okay from a Mom & Pop business to a Facebook page for a Fortune 1000 company with more complex needs.

I'm leaning towards North Social at this point based on my gut.

I am interested in comments from people who have had experience with any of the 4 products I've listed whether you are recommending one of them or some other product. It isn't as helpful if you recommend a product without being able to compare to your real experience with at least one of these other 4 products.

    I just checked into North Social and was surprised at their 5 page limit on their most abundant option. ?!

    If you're just looking for yourself (and your one fanpage) there are bunches of free options. But if you're like me, I manage fanpages for a living and need the unlimited options that others provide.

    I'm still looking to find the 'perfect' one. Woobox is interesting but may need separate 'free' accounts for each client - which is possible but obviously just a bit pain to deal with.
