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.

SpyFu

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.

Pros

6sense

  • Stores and organizes information by product, department, etc., to make it easier for our website to function.

SpyFu

  • Gets info on competitor's websites. Simply putting in a domain name allows us to see what keywords they rank for organically, how much they spend on PPC and what their ads look like.
  • Finds the best keywords for our clients. By showing what keywords are going to cost, how many searches per month, etc. it allows us to plan budgets more accurately.

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
Rob Morris | TrustRadius Reviewer

SpyFu

  • As with any database, their keyword database has limits, so the data returned is relative to their database, not necessarily the full picture.
  • When SpyFu database or scoring chances, the data provided can spike, thus causing confusion among stakeholders, we're reporting to.

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.

I personally think that SpyFu has great support. In my time using this product for both myself and for my clients and customers, I have not experienced any problems with SpyFu or their support for their website or their services.

SpyFu

When it comes to assessing the competition, SpyFu is fantastic. I prefer its competitor analysis features much more than SEMRush or any other platform out there. That is what I use SpyFu for. Regarding reporting and integrations, it doesn't quite seem like it's the best option given the versatility other platforms like RavenTools has to offer. Especially at the price.

Return on Investment

6sense

  • Revenue growth
  • More productive employees
Laurie Wheeler | TrustRadius Reviewer

SpyFu

  • SpyFu has had a fairly neutral ROI for our business, as it is fairly cost-effective, but doesn't necessarily provide us with significant returns.
  • SpyFu is nice to have, and I recommend using it - even if just the free version; you really can't lose anything.
  • There are other tools out there similar to SpyFu, but if you haven't tried them yet, SpyFu can be a nice, cost-effective place to get started.
