Vendasta vs. 99DollarSocial
99DollarSocial promises daily posts for your clients, but the quality may not be what you expect. On the flip side, Vendasta’s social media services are more focused on engagement and relevance. You can also use Vendasta for digital advertising, web design, reputation management, and content creation.
A strong social media presence can help businesses engage with their current customers and acquire new ones. However, creating social media content can be very challenging for agencies like yours because it’s hard to find qualified writers with a knack for social media. On top of that, you need to onboard new clients and provide detailed reports.
All these tasks are time-consuming and can hinder your agency’s growth, but companies like Vendasta and 99DollarSocial are here to help. You can focus on growing your business by outsourcing fulfillment work to these companies.
The main difference between Vendasta and 99DollarSocial is that Vendasta cares about content quality and engagement, while 99DollarSocial focuses on the volume of posts.
You can pay less and get more posts if you go with 99DollarSocial, but Vendasta is by far the best option to increase your customer retention, deliver high-quality content, and uncover cross-selling opportunities that will increase your returns in the long run.
With 99DollarSocial, you pay $99/mo to get one daily post published to two social media platforms. One of them is Facebook and the other must be posted on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Pinterest. The price is the same for both agencies and businesses. Resellers have to pay a subscription fee that starts at $99/mo.
You can purchase 99DollarSocial’s add-ons to increase the number of posts or get your posts published to more than two social media networks.
If you’re still considering 99DollarSocial, we advise that you do your research on their reputation and read customer reviews before you make a decision.
It won’t be easy to find them, though. 99DollarSocial disabled recommendations on their Facebook page, automatically hiding their ratings and reviews. There are no reviews on their Google My Business profile, which seems unusual for a company that’s been around for a few years.
With a little bit of digging, we found 99DollarSocial reviews on a website called Virtual Assistant—and they are quite concerning as you can see in the screenshots below:
Customer reviews shouldn’t be treated as the absolute truth, but it’s important to see what other people are saying about 99DollarSocial. We also found a few favorable reviews on other websites, but most of them were tied to their affiliate program.
