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.

Graylog

If you already have a basic understanding of Elasticsearch and/or MongoDB, Graylog will be a great fit when it comes to log aggregation. It will be a decent option even if you don't have any experience but have the time and willingness to roll up your sleeves that learning those tools will require. Graylog supports plugins to extend functionality for things like SNMP traps, telemetry collection, and solar flares. As is the case with most software with plugins, if the core functionality for which you are looking (i.e. not logging) is based on a plugin, Graylog probably isn't for you. The majority of the plugins in the marketplace are developed by third-parties looking to solve their specific use case so bug fixes and new features are not a given.

Cons

BuzzSumo

  • Although I think it's hard, I'd like to see it being used for other mediums as well such as Twitch, etc.
  • It could have better backlink data to include more backlinks that each content piece has.
  • One or two more pricing tiers might work.

  • Pricing for Enterprise is a bit unrealistic.
  • Archiving should be a standard feature in the community edition.

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.

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

They have good online documentation. I haven't had to use their support much, which is a good thing I would assume since most everything they do is the standard way to do it. When I have used their support is was the online documentation; it seems to be well supported by Graylog and the community. Every issue I had, I was able to resolve using their documentation or the forums with questions on their website.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Graylog provides some great functionality for free. There are some more premium products that would handle more logs and would be a little easier to configure

Return on Investment

BuzzSumo

  • It has had a positive return as it has allowed us to create better content and gain popularity online.
  • 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.

Graylog

  • We do not purchase support, so the only operational cost is that of the time it takes to maintain it.
  • All the components of Graylog that we use are free and open source, so there was no capital expense other than that of servers (repurposed from another recently-decommissioned project).
  • If there is a software crash that doesn't recover gracefully, it's usually something obscure that will take a while to diagnose and fix. Unless you build out a distributed and more resilient system with no single points of failure, that may have an impact on the organization or industry requirements for compliance.
