Sprout Social is one of the premiere social media management tools on the market today. They offer a standard and a premium version. In this article I’ll look briefly at Sprout’s fundamentals, and some more recent features like viewing and filtering of scheduled messages. I’ll spend most of the article reviewing the features of Sprout’s Premium edition including, keyword trend and engagement reporting, Viralpost optimization, helpdesk integration, and Google Analytics integration. During this trial I used sprout as my primary publishing tool, and for an unexpected amount of research, analysis and discovery.
