Bandwidth

Bandwidth covers the majority of areas where we had customers. However, there are still some areas we would have like to see them cover for calls. They cover more areas than our other carriers, but they did surprise us from time to time by an inability to be able to deliver call transport.

ShoutOUT

If you are mainly using Instagram influencers to promote your business, ShoutOUT works excellent for that. Most of those influencers aren't very tech-savvy, so giving them a coupon code to track their sales and commission them off of that seems to work well. The mass payout feature is pretty simple to use as well, but I wish that you didn't have to do it on a 1-on-1 basis.

ShoutOUT

  • Great for simple, not very tech-savvy influencers or affiliates.
  • Ties in seamlessly to Shopify Plus, which is a must for our organization.
  • Simple dashboard, easy to manage affiliates.

Cons

Bandwidth

  • Their dashboard is lacking. We would love to see some additional graphing components, live traffic views, etc.
  • Their E911 infrastructure is still separate, making things a bit complex to provision endpoints and manage them.
  • SMS/MMS is a little behind competitors like Twilio, but still usable and very reliable.
Chris Horne | TrustRadius Reviewer

ShoutOUT

  • Not a vast network of affiliates to choose from if you need them to facilitate that side of your business.
  • Sometimes the tracking by coupon code doesn't seem to work correctly, and the numbers don't match up with what we see on the backend of our Shopify numbers.
  • Could make it easier to add creatives and deep linking for affiliates.

It works perfectly for what we need it to do. It is very inexpensive, works well, and makes it easy for us to navigate and use. We can easily add new affiliates and create coupons for them to track their sales. For the influencers that are a little more inclined to post product links and go the more traditional affiliate approach, we can certainly provide that option for them and go that route as well. We like the ease and simplicity.

We only had to use it once, but they got back to us very quickly and helped us solve the issue that we had. So, ShoutOUT support is batting 1000% in our book, but that is only 1 out of 1 and may not be enough of a sample size to verify that they are as good as we think.

Alternatives Considered

Bandwidth

Their pricing is tough to beat, the reliability is great. And then add a few more positive things, like the tools and customer support, and that makes it a no-brainer.

ShoutOUT

We used Shareasale and Commission Junction in the, and they are awesome to manage your traditional affiliates that run blogs or email campaigns. We would still be using those if we did more of a traditional approach to influencers. But since we moved over to a more influencer based marketing approach, ShoutOut is fantastic and has made it simpler for us and our affiliates.

Return on Investment

Bandwidth

  • We found Bandwidth to be very easy to work with and they grew as we grew. Their pricing was very competitive and they were always willing to take another look at their pricing for us.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ShoutOUT

  • Very positive right off the bat because we dropped our Commission Junction expenses and got most of our bigger affiliates to switch over to keep their sales.
  • Easy to use and much simpler for our affiliate manager to do her work.
