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.

Influitive

Influitive is well suited for any organization that is interested in engaging customers, mobilizing advocates, and helping to streamline their customer reference, content creation, and product innovation processes. Any customer-centric organization should have this in their toolkit! One thing to be aware of is that, in my opinion and experience, such programs work best with a robust rewards system in place, so this is something to consider in terms of budget, especially for smaller organizations with smaller budgets to spend on customer incentives. Make sure that you consider the cost of incentives and not just the cost of the platform because I think this can have a big impact on the success of the program.

  • Reporting could use some improvement - sometimes it can be difficult to figure out the best way to get the data needed. There are few different ways to pull reports, so sometimes it feels complex.
  • Being able to have more flexibility with the positioning of the challenges on the advocate view would be great. If you could move around the challenges by dragging them, that would improve the usability.

I really like working with Influitive and with AdvocateHub. Their support staff is awesome and everyone I have come into contact with at the company has been friendly and supportive. Their corporate interactions with customers model their product philosophy incredibly well. I am very satisfied and trust in their attention to me as a customer.

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.

Influitive is very user friendly and makes it simple to navigate around the platform. This makes it easier for both admins and advocates alike to use the platform with ease and it also makes it much easier for us to get the results that we desire from the program. However, like any platform, it does have it's bugs sometimes.

Influitive AdvocateHub interacts with Blackbaud Champions and is an on-time response system. What I mean by that is once data is entered in Influitive AdvocateHub, it is updated in real time and I can access a computer and the data is there immediately. Sometimes the rewards do not show up right away and I am under the assumption that the delay is caused by an influx of traffic.

I've never run into a support team so responsive - I even sent them an edible arrangement after helping me with no fewer than five questions one day. Even on off hours, my non-urgent questions get handled. I'm just stunned by the responsiveness and quality of the support team at Influitive.

The training was extensive and gave me the knowledge/ skills that I needed in order to implement my advocacy program using Influitive's Advocate Hub. I also meet on a regular basis with my Customer Success Manager. My Success Manager helps give me ideas for my program and helps me ensure that it's successful. Influitive is really invested in my success. They act more like a partner than a vendor

To implement correctly, you HAVE to put in the time. This isn't a no-brainer implementation. It's easy from a technical end, but you have to have your community-building hat on and you have to actually put challenges into the product in order to see any results at all. If you have zero time to manage it, you will fail.

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.

We went with Influitive AdvocateHub as it really checked the majority of our requirements list. And if there are things that we need, they are always willing to help us work through work arounds and solutions. I find them reliable and extremely professional and knowledgeable. The competitors are as well - but the user network is really top notch so you're covered in the entire ecosystem

Return on Investment

  • The ROI is good enough.
  • Less hassle to carry out tasks which in turn saves expenses.
  • Streamlines referral processes and record keeping.
Simon Gray | TrustRadius Reviewer

Influitive

  • We've increased referrals, references, reviews, testimonials, social shares, etc ten fold.
  • We've been able to accomplish feats that would have previously taken days and months, and are able to complete them in minutes or hours. It's a huge time saver.
  • By giving our customers a strong voice, we are increasing loyalty, which in the end increases ROI as they are more likely to renew and reduces churn.
