Pros
  • The real-time data unmatched and Buzzsumo is continually improving their tools and dashboards every year (we've noticed that their team listens to suggestions and often implements new features based on how our industry is evolving).
Cons
  • The price is a little steep for us. We are a small advertising agency and have a lot of tools to consider to improve our efficiency. We just wish it was a little less expensive.

Crowdtap
Crowdtap is a good application for teams that need quick feedback on new design or advertising options. They seem to have good data on the respondents and their relative fields. Many of the designs of the questions are easy to distinguish and do not overload the respondent with too many options

Usability
Cision
The interface is a little clunky for me, especially on mobile. However, the directions are clear and it didn't take long for me to figure out how to use it. I just wish that things were a little more streamlined.

Support Rating
Cision
The support we have received over the years has been wonderful. They have definitely demonstrated excellent customer service. We find the chat support to be the quickest and most useful for the day-to-day questions. A rep always responds very timely, answers our questions, and sends a follow-up to ensure we're maintaining success

Alternatives Considered
Cision
Buffer is a tool that can be very useful for certain uses of Twitter, but in reality, it is very limited when you want to demand a little more. The pros actually weigh a lot, but the serious limitations in several regards do not allow us to give it a higher mark.
I consider that Buffer is a very useful tool that allows you to have an active presence on social networks without having to be glued to them all day. There are others, among which Hootsuite stands out.

Crowdtap allows the user to provide short questions and images to get quick turnarounds for competing ideas and designs. The rewards system is useful and seems to be very competitive with other products. The questions are mostly short, however you can also create detailed multi-step questions within a campaign. Overall Crowdtap is the best in its area.

  • Helps us find influencers for campaigns.
