Are you looking for an alternative to Taggbox?
Here are 6 reasons why Flockler is the best alternative to the Taggbox social media widget:
- Unlimited number of widgets
- Multiple hashtag campaigns and events for the same fee
- Unlimited number of posts and page views
- Manage multiple organisations with one account
- Unlimited number of collaborators
- Full support via email, live chat, and phone
1. Unlimited number of widgets
👎 Taggbox limits the number of widgets.
With Flockler, you can create as many Walls, Grids, Carousels, and Slideshows as you need. You can use them on an unlimited number of websites, mobile apps, digital displays, and other digital services.
Also, you can categorise the content in multiple Sections and display each of them separately. To give you an example, you might want to combine the content of multiple brands on your corporate homepage and then display each brand feed separately on dedicated websites. Check our tutorial video on how to use Sections.
And that’s not all. With Flockler, you can create filtered views based on hashtags. For example, you might gather Instagram posts using a specific hashtag with Flockler and then create Instagram widgets for specific product pages.
GoPro’s #GoProAwards page is an excellent example with a dedicated widget per campaign. And as well as creating a widget showing their Instagram account feed, GoPro can show a hashtag filtered view on each campaign page.
Is your service in multiple languages? No problem – you can create widgets for each language separately.
2. Multiple hashtag campaigns and events for the same fee
👎 Taggbox doesn’t allow you to change your feeds without losing the content.
With Flockler, you only pay for the active feeds. Active feeds keep updating fresh content every 5-15 minutes. When the campaign or event is over, you can turn off the feed and keep displaying the content on your website and other digital services. You can use active feeds for another purpose at the same time.
If you are looking to create multiple hashtag campaigns over the year, or set up social media walls for events, this feature is something you really want your social media widget builder to have. Flockler allows you to keep displaying user-generated content campaigns and event content from the past, and you can create an unlimited number of new campaigns for the same fee.
3. Unlimited number of posts and page views
👎 Taggbox limits the number of posts and page views.
Wouldn’t you hate to see some of your social media feed posts disappear? I bet you would.
Flockler doesn’t limit the number of posts you gather in user-generated content campaigns or page views for your widgets. The more successful your campaigns, the happier we are!
4. Manage multiple organisations with one account
👎 You need to create several Taggbox accounts to manage multiple organisations.
With Flockler, you can manage multiple organisations under one account. You can use Sections to categorize the content per organisation or manage multiple Flocklers with a single user account.
5. Unlimited number of collaborators
👎 Taggbox limits the number of collaborators.
Whether you are a small or large organisation, you probably will want to invite colleagues and other partners to manage the content with you. A personal user account for each team member and multiple user rights levels add flexibility and security.
6. Full support via email, live chat, and phone
👎 Taggbox limits support availability based on your subscription fee.
With Flockler, all of our clients have access to email, live chat, and phone support. Whether you are on a free trial, a small business, or a global brand, Flockler’s world-class support team will be there for you.
