Awario is incredible for finding just about any odd brand mention online. It even picks up brand mentions on spammy spun content sites. I use it daily for keeping track of everything that's going on with the brands I manage.

I haven't had any actual issues with Awario, but the few times I have had questions the live chat agents were extremely helpful and quick to respond. They were polite, courteous, and patient when explaining different settings and/or pointing me to articles in the help center/knowledge base.

Though the cost is relatively high in my opinion, it has allowed us to make better organic content than we would have paid this cost on ads. Helps us find influencers for campaigns.
