What is the history and popularity of the app?

Founder Karel Baloun launched ThruSocial in April of 2010. The application was born out of many years of technical and social media experience as well as a desire to create a tool that anyone can use. Many small business owners have found that ThruSocial provides an economical alternative to pricier advertising services. Users can set up professional pages and coupon campaigns in a matter of minutes and without spending hundreds of dollars or more.

What are the differences to other apps?

ThruSocial has received attention because of its economical service and user friendly nature. The application claims to supply user with the tools they need to build a professional Facebook page or social coupon campaign in five minutes. Thanks to the simple, intuitive design, this promise has been put into practice effectively. Users can easily build their pages and campaigns so they look good and offer a practical alternative to hiring a pricy professional.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

ThruSocial keeps things as simple as possible for the user. As soon as a new user signs up with their Facebook credentials, the application automatically pulls any business page data they already have on Facebook and gives them the option of working with it. User can also build a brand new page if they prefer to do so. The drag and drop system is about as easy as it gets and the entire experience is free of clutter and advertising annoyances.

How does the registration process work?

Users can try ThruSocial by clicking the orange “Try It Free” button found near the center o the homepage. Users can also click the “Sign Up” link in the upper, right hand corner. Both options open up a pop up box that invites the user to register through a Facebook account. There are no other options available at this time. Although the Facebook sign up makes sense, since ThruSocial works through social networks, additional options would make the application more convenient.

Users can choose from four membership plans when signing up for ThruSocial. The first is the free basic plan which includes one custom tab and the ability to create and manage fan messages as well as ThruSocial branding. The Pro membership costs $20 per page each month and upgrades to allow unlimited custom tabs, no ThruSocial branding and the ability to install unlimited Pro widgets. The Premier plan costs $35 per page per month and includes custom HTML and Facebook comments, the ability to create custom deals and coupons, Polling, Flash and Paypal integration. A Professional add on is available for $150. This one-time fee includes a professional design consultation, ThruPons for the user and tab building service supplied by ThruSocial.

Who would you recommend the application to?
