If your company wants to identify buying intent before the prospect starts talks with a competitor, or before the prospect even concretely defines their needs, 6sense is the answer.

I would say if you are using it for advertising sales its a great tool. If you own your own business and want to see what the competition is doing it is also a great too. If you did not have a great need for assessing marketing/advertising budgets and campaigns then it would probably be less important.

Cons

6sense

  • A bit difficult to navigate at times, so watch all the training videos and ask for help
  • Not as intuitive but very powerful once you know how to use it
  • Sometimes there are glitches but they have great support to help and fix it and never a repeat issue

SpyFu

  • SpyFu's data could possibly be a little more specific; compared to some other similar platforms, it's slightly simplistic.
  • SpyFu could consider providing more competitor information outside of search, and delve into other platforms like social, as this data is becoming more widely available.
  • SpyFu's user interface - while easy to navigate - also takes away a lot of customizations and levers you might be able to pull in other platforms.

Love this tool but would like insights from all 3 major search engines not just Google. I would also like deeper understanding of the placement for local businesses on Google Places/Maps.Insight into mobile search rankings and best landing pages per industry would also help :) Overall, SpyFu is a necessity for serious search marketers.

The support team at SpyFu works hard and stands by their product. They answer relatively quickly and have always been more than willing to help out when an issue has appeared. With this said, I have only used their customer/product support fleetingly because the platform performs what I need it to do. A lot of the questions that I have had are in help/support pages on the site.

SpyFu is just an overall better package contained in one place. A full comprehensive competitive analysis can be completed with the use SpyFu. In the past, many other competitive tools would be needed, but here, it is all together. SpyFu presents everything in a user-friendly well-organized manner where you can create PDFs to share research compiled with the team, even if they haven't used SpyFu.

  • My subscription is less than $40/month and I would say there is a good ROI since I am able to utilize the data from the insights for my business
  • There are no real negatives, the platform does what it says it will do!
