I’m always on the lookout for social media tools that can help me keep on top of my online presence. I want to find an app that can help filter out the background noise and focus on what’s important. One potential candidate is Crowdbooster.
Crowdbooster describes itself as ‘a social media marketing solution that fuses targeted recommendations and data-driven insights to help brands achieve online influence.’ Sounds impressive, huh? What does all that mean though? Let’s take a closer look.
After the initial free 30 day trial period, the starter account will set you back $9 per month. With that you can add one Twitter account and one Facebook Page to the service. You’re restricted to one user and up to 50,000 fans and followers.
That should be enough for most bloggers. Although, you can upgrade to an account with unlimited fans and followers for $49 per month as your following grows.
