Chose BuzzSumo
I've tried many many tools to find good content. Tools like Scoop.it are close but don't have the utility of showing how many shares an article has. So finding the right content is still guess work. Feedly and RSS feeds are just too time-consuming. Percolate claims to find you …

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
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

Cons
Cision
  • 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
  • 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.

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

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
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
Cision
  • 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.
