Awario

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.

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is a good tool for brands or agencies who have a set list of competitors or subbrands that they are looking to do a monthly/weekly comparison of engagement metrics. When you have the brand account inputted, the data is shown in a visually tangible way and easy to comprehend.

Cons

Awario

  • A better onboarding process would've gotten me hooked earlier
  • Better ongoing training and support, perhaps a certification process, would make this easier to customize for niche use cases.
  • Using advanced functionality would be easier with more hand-holding

Pulsar

  • Unfortunately, when exporting data it is often hard to read in an easy format.
  • I've used other tools where you can get historical data once you put into the tool but Pulsar cannot do that.

Pulsar is not a complex tool by any means. The interface is updated and comprehensive, and I've used multiple tools in the past where the interface was very outdated and exporting data was often a difficult process since it was not well organized. The tool works well in visualizing complex data.

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. I couldn't have asked for a better experience when it came to getting the help and answers I was looking for.

I have not had to reach out to Pulsar support before but my coworkers have and said the support was good.

Alternatives Considered

Awario

There are a lot of excellent options, but Awario has it all. I also originally got it as a lifetime deal, so I don't have to worry about paying for it ongoing.

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is one of the more updated platforms that I have used and the metrics exported/shown in the dashboard are accurate. I think that some tools report inaccurate metrics gathered from social media platforms due to the new APIs, something that often causes confusion and lack of clarity.

Return on Investment

Awario

  • I've been able to find a handful of negative mentions about my brand that wound up being a misunderstanding - by responding to these complaints I was able to clear up misunderstandings, which helped retain customers and bring on new ones - it's hard to calculate exact ROI, but it's definitely been in the positive.
