Branch well suited: Branch links are perfecting for embedding into our email service provider (SendGrid), paid media channels (Facebook, Google, ASA), organic media (Instagram, Facebook, content marketing, referral) and push notification platform (OneSignal) to be able to evaluate actions taken from users that clicked on those branch links. No matter the data from these links, they are accurate and are easily exported to our database and CRM to determine ROI, and find weak points in our major funnels.

GetSocial
It is very well suited for those who look to grow their business using its effective digital marketing strategies. Managing social network channels is a big task but when you use this tool it comes in handy in a single place. It is easy to use and also it has also a great support to solve our queries. But the thing is it is a bit overpriced, They can consider offering the additional feature in their trial version.

Cons
Branch Metrics, Inc.
  • Multiplayers redirection is important feature. In our marketing process for [our] Ace Tutor app https://www.acetutor.io, we have a referral reward campaign for which we want to aggregate clicks from lower level links to higher level links. For example, we created unique Branch Links for 10 marketing interns, and each intern wanted to create Branch Links for their own 10 delegates, the clicks of the Branch Links from these delegates would be automatically rolled up to the right intern's Branch Link, so we can make payment following the aggregation paths. Currently, Branch Links do not support this kind of multiplayer or multi-layer redirections.

Alternatives Considered
Branch Metrics, Inc.
Branch's links are the most consistent in the mobile space. They work across desktop and mobile, where AppsFlyer and Deeplink's didn't consistently perform in both places. Branch's measurement is more consistent across all customer touch points as well, which gives our marketing and growth teams the answers they need without any struggle.

GetSocial has much more efficient support and their marketing strategies helped us to build our business with daily new customers coming up online. So we never regret going for GetSocial. We were able to analyze our social networking channels and our competitors which helped us much in terms of business growth. We never searched for other products when we were using this.
