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.

Scoop.it Content Director

Scoop.it does have collaboration features so you can have more than one admin add content to a topic, but there is no platform for collaboration or drafting of content. It is easy to try out the free version and get a good idea of what the application does, and then add on features from there

Pros

BuzzSumo

  • Monitors for client PR placements and notifies via email and Slack alerts
  • Helps us research potential journalists writing about the topics relevant to our clients
  • Displays trending web and social content clearly with relevant metrics
  • Allows us to view what's working for our clients' competitors in the media

Scoop.it Content Director

  • Provides suggestions daily for each of your topics depending on keywords you choose. There is no guesswork about what to share.
  • Allows sharing of your content to various social media outlets with the touch of a button. Your content gets spread quickly.
  • Your own beautiful front page functions as your website. It shows the curator profile, and all your topics.

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.

Scoop.it Content Director

  • When we first implemented the usage of Scoop.it the topics of search were very limited, but as the popularity grows, so does the number of searchable topics.

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

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.

Scoop.it Content Director

We used both social sites and as a personal preference, I liked Scoop.it considerably more because of the layout of the site and the ease of the user experience. It was also much easier to share content. I like to think of Scoop.it as the "short, sweet and to the point" website that gives me exactly what we need, when we need it and the manner in which it easiest to use.

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.

  • I'm afraid we haven't been able to measure ROI, but we definitely have a stronger, more graphic impact in social media
