Our Reaction: We would definitely recommend Marketing Grader and love the new mobile section as well as the upgraded social media section. Website Grader pulls up social media accounts differently than Marketing Grader. Website Grader allows you to see your Twitter grade and the number of Facebook likes but lacks active interaction analysis. It is important for us to see how our fans and followers are engaging so we can engage with them. Marketing Grader allows just that!
Most notable difference for us: Large dip in grade from Website Grader to Marketing Grader. Marketing Grader is analyzing more measurements and we have noticed that in the dip from our 91 grade on Website Grader to our 69 grade on Marketing Grader.
