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.

IZEA

I
think IZEA is very well adequate and appropriate for influencer marketing. If
your business requires influencer marketing then this platform can provide you
a lot of leverage and help. But I feel if a company is on a low budget then
this is a good option. On the contrary, if a company or agency has more money
then I would suggest a platform that has a simpler and easier user interface. IZEA
offers a comprehensive self-service SaaS platform that is fully managed and
has hybrid solutions to the world's leading brands and agencies.

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.

IZEA

  • There are certain problems with IZEA as well like it seems that half of the influencers I need are only here at IZEA. Also, every once and a while, the search functionality just freezes on me which is another con I have felt a lot.
  • Other than that, the interface functionality is not as smooth as it could be to provide the optimal user experience. Also, they do not have every influencer in their system which is a con that can miss important opportunities.

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

I don't have much to add here as I haven't needed team support. I do know our access to customer service is limited with the type of account that we have.

Alternatives Considered

BuzzSumo

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.

IZEA

IZEA has a much better discovery tool than GroupHigh, but GroupHigh had more data for more influencers.

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.

IZEA

  • IZEA is the best option available for so many things and for identifying appropriate partners for a program.
  • IZEA also helps me in contacting and reaching out to influencers for various projects.
  • It is an affordable platform.
