Likelihood to Recommend

AppsFlyer

I would recommend this tool to any bigger company with a mobile app and bigger budget. This tool is extremely helpful when you're running multiple user acquisition campaigns and would like to better understand which channel works best, and why. In other words, this is great for mobile marketing initiatives and optimizations.

Hustle

Hustle is best suited for messages that require a response, like Yes/No for RSVP or asking if they need more info about a topic. We use Hustle to communicate with students in higher education to inform them about important information like upcoming payment deadlines or to encourage attendance at events like orientation.

  • Easy setup: not too many lines of code for our developers.
  • Ads integration: easy 1 to 2 step integration for digital ad networks.

Cons

AppsFlyer

  • Kind of expensive, especially for SMBs
  • I’m not a huge fan of the dashboard UI and the mobile app is still a little buggy, but it keeps improving with every version, which is great.

Hustle

  • Depending on the size of your contact list, the cost can get high
  • While you can use the service for almost any type of text messaging, some of the interface is definitely geared for political/event use.

Alternatives Considered

AppsFlyer

The biggest problem with AppsFlyer is that there's no free tier. It's solely pay per install, which is nice for small teams and startups, but Branch.io is free up to a couple thousand to tens of thousands of MAU's!Branch also has features and benefits that AppsFlyer just doesn't, such as text to app install, automatic dynamic links, custom short links, and so much more.If you're building from scratch, go with Branch and use a data analytics platform that integrates well with them such as a Mixpanel (which also does attribution but is not as robust as Branch, so use the integration).

We have also used RAVE and Google Voice to send text massages. RAVE does not allow for one-to-one communication with recipients an Google Voice does not let you easily communicate with list of contacts and lacks the interface for canned responses. Neither provides the quality reporting that is available in Hustle.
