  • Pulling Domain Authority and some other data automatically really speeds up work.
  • Contacts discovery is very good option. It's not perfect, but it really helps.

Cons

  • For our use case, the isn't any functionality or changes needed. It has been fine -tuned for 14 years so it is incredibly robust.

  • They were late to give an option of bulk sending but they allow this now.
  • The export capability could be better. When I tried to export a list to enrich the prospect data with some other tools, I could only export 4 contacts from a prospect. The problem is, sometimes there are more than 4 contacts for a specific prospect so this creates exporting problems.
  • I can't find how to configure how many prospects per page to show and I would love to have a longer list of prospects per page.

Buzzstream is great to help identify sites to get links from, and it makes this process so efficient, easy and personal to all, the ones who are using it and the ones that are receiving. Flawless navigation, good outlook, 10/10!

Alternatives Considered

There is no equivalent to ARchitect on the market. We, like many AR programs, used Excel spreadsheets and Word docs before getting ARchitect. Those general purpose tools are sub-optimal for AR management.

BuzzStream is the only tool that I've used. However, it is the only one that I need to use. It accomplishes all of my needs and does a great job. If there's something better I haven't heard of it. I would recommend this to anyone that asks about it
