Likelihood to Recommend

Ambassador Referral Marketing Platform (discontinued)

Should be used by organizations to promote business and bring in new customers, particularly the ones with a bigger customer base. It may or may not be used by small businesses as the data is not too much to store, however, I recommend using it anyway as it will save time and, in turn, let you do more for your business.

Pros
  • The real-time data unmatched and Buzzsumo is continually improving their tools and dashboards every year (we've noticed that their team listens to suggestions and often implements new features based on how our industry is evolving).
Cons
  • The price is a little steep for us. We are a small advertising agency and have a lot of tools to consider to improve our efficiency. We just wish it was a little less expensive.

BuzzSumo

  • The best part about BuzzSumo is its insight on SEO/keywords. The platform lets you know which keywords relevant to our products have been searched most frequently. By figuring out how prospects are searching for content like ours, we're able to improve the language we use to target them.
  • BuzzSumo really helps with finding the most effective content publishing times. For example, we're a B2B company, so we thought that posting on social media throughout the week was most effective since our customers would be in the office. However, the tools on BuzzSumo showed us that engagement with similar content was heaviest on Sunday nights over the last year.
  • BuzzSumo has a great tool for understanding which social media platform to use for sharing your content. After finding the most relevant keywords for your audience and content type, the platform has graphs showing you which social media sites these types of content were viewed on the most. This helped us to stop posting on social media platforms that our prospects weren't using.

  • Although I think it's hard, I'd like to see it being used for other mediums as well such as Twitch, etc.
  • It could have better backlink data to include more backlinks that each content piece has.
  • One or two more pricing tiers might work.

It is very user friendly, all options and features are easily accessible. Support material is readily available to help out with general queries or frequently asked questions. The software's customer-facing end does not require any special training or skills to use it to its full capacity. In short, it is easy and good looking.

The interface is a little clunky for me, especially on mobile. However, the directions are clear and it didn't take long for me to figure out how to use it. I just wish that things were a little more streamlined.

The support we have received over the years has been wonderful. They have definitely demonstrated excellent customer service. We find the chat support to be the quickest and most useful for the day-to-day questions. A rep always responds very timely, answers our questions, and sends a follow-up to ensure we're maintaining success

Alternatives Considered

Ambassador Referral Marketing Platform (discontinued)

They both offer about the same in terms of end goal and purpose of use and scenarios. However, Ambassador does way better in terms of simplifying the syntax and makes offer a little bit more of control by adding the concepts of hosts, mappings while staying away from a hard to read single file configuration.

Buzzsumo seems pretty far ahead of many of its competitors. Specifically, I find that its data pool is much more extensive and in-depth compared to mainstream competitors. For example, Buzzsumo seems to be more aware overall of tangential topics that are relevant to–but not directly related to--the topic at hand. I'm pretty impressed by it.
