ARchitect

If you have an AR program across the globe and want to track all interactions you have with them, this tool is right for you. As you can imagine the tool is only as good as the data you put in, so you do have to make it part of your work day to input the data. Say a team member leaves and you have to jump in to cover for them, you are able to see all the interactions they have had with analysts

If you are doing high volume outreach campaigns focused on link building then Buzzstream is a great tool. If you are doing outreach on a small scale then it's probably better to use some simpler tool as Buzzstream takes some time to learn how to use it well. Overall, Buzzstream is for serious players.

Pros

ARchitect

  • Consolidation of coverage. ARchitect's Premium Content is an ideal tool. Analyst coverage is centralized in ARchitect -- saving the step of visiting multiple analyst websites to track coverage. We are also able to run customized coverage reports.
  • Interaction creation and maintenance. ARchitect's Interactions allow us to track our interactions with analysts, collaborate on interactions, and keep have a record of everything we've worked on. We can run interaction reports (which can be provided to the business) and briefing documents to keep executives up-to-date on how we've engaged analysts.
  • Projects for project management. ARchitect's Projects enables us to track analyst major reviews (very complex interactions) that can take several months to complete. We can easily look at the status and results of all major reviews -- in addition to keeping track of any red-flag situations.
  • Customization. Interaction, Article (part of Premium Content) and Project entry forms can be customized. Additional details outside of the standard form can be tracked.

Cons

ARchitect

  • It would be great if ARcitect was able to add a field for staffers for event 1:1s, having this as a separate field would be helpful.

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!

In the instances I have had issues its been a little tricky to figure things out, some of the videos are helpful but getting email responses are not great compared to online chat and I have found that the response rates have been more than a day in some instances which is not as responsive as I would like compared to other platforms

Alternatives Considered

ARchitect

Prior to using ARchitect, we were using Salesforce. While we did have some customization added, it did not nearly have the robustness that ARchitect provides -- especially since it is designed for AR professionals. We've been using ARchitect for about 8 years and have never looked back. Some examples of vast improvements: 1. Analyst firms/bios. With Salesforce, we needed to maintain all analyst bios -- something that ARchitect does.2. Analyst coverage. We used to track all analyst coverage by visiting multiple analyst websites and manually pasting into spreadsheets. We now not only get a feed of coverage that can be exported into Excel, but we can also customize reports by topic.3. Reporting. Salesforce did not provide the same reporting capabilities that ARchitect provides.

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

Return on Investment

ARchitect

  • The Event Module has taken days if not weeks out of the prep process for big events.
  • ARchitect is a great way to allow communication with peers, without the need for extra emails, ect, because everyone on the team can see what each other is doing and who they are talking to about which topics.

BuzzStream

  • It's had a positive impact in keeping our entire agency organized. Especially when employees leave, all of their communication is in one place, so it's pretty easy to have someone take over the process.
  • You can test different messaging for prospects and then determine the most successful.
