It's a great tool for media or market-facing sites that get enough customer traffic to benefit from realtime changes in headlines, design or display. However, small sites that don't get enough traffic to benefit from realtime changes in headlines, design or display probably can't justify the cost of the product.

Terminus ABM Platform

If you're looking for a display advertising option, then Terminus is one of the major players - for better or worse. They source intent data from a third party (Bombora, I believe) so you have some targeting options available to you beyond company and position within. Advertising costs are in addition to the base contract price for their service so that's something to keep in mind if you're trying to work within a smaller budget. Since this is display advertising, the billing method is CPM (cost per thousand impressions). Their ad network does include the option to do Sponsored Posts with LinkedIn (although you can do that on your own honestly).

Pros

Chartbeat

  • Instant insight for newsrooms: What are readers reading, on what platform, how long are they staying?
  • Headline testing: Allows us to try multiple versions of the 'sell' for the story to understand what interests different sorts of readers
  • Segmentation of audience: Allows us to understand not only where readers come from (search, social, direct, etc.) but also how loyal they are and how long they stay
  • Proper engagement time: Too often our industry obsesses on dwell time, but Chartbeat's active engaged time gives us a true sense of how long we really engage people for
  • Simple actions: For example, the Chartbeat overlay tells us where people on average leave a story, so it helps us take actions quickly

  • Event Announcements. We use Sigstr to promote hosted and co-hosted events. Email recipients can click on the Sigstr to register for the event itself. By promoting events through Sigstr we have been able to increase event registration and attendance.
  • Content Sharing. New blog post, webinar, presentation, infographic... you name it, you can use Sigstr to promote it. Furthermore, you can personalize the content to target different audiences based of the sender group. Example: customer content Sigstr belongs to support, while marketing new business content belongs to sales.
  • Announcements. Product enhancements, Company news etc. You can use Sigstr to promote general announcements relevant to the audience.

Cons

Chartbeat

  • The service could be broken down to provide page view figures for individual tags on our website metadata
  • The dashboard for each day could offer more detail on performance compared to previous days/last week - how many people viewed articles of the same topic in a similar time period

  • They recently purchased some new solutions that are being integrated into the platform so once that is completed it will be a much more robust solution.
  • I think updating what is considered high value vs brand awareness on the spike report could be a little more seamless.
  • For Salesforce integration, Terminus information unfortunately doesn't pull in historically, it just shows what has happened since the integration started. I think it's unfortunate because that historical data tells us a lot.

I gave Chartbeat a 5 for a renewal rating, because, while it delivers clear and understandable content, Google Analytics also provides many of the same features for free. For a small to medium website, I believe it would be more cost effective to use Google Analytics. A website with a high amount of traffic, however, could merit spending the money on Chartbeat to maximize their potential.

Brightfunnel is a very useful tool but can only be used to the fullest if your data is there. It is hard for organizations with bad data to fully utilize its abilities.

[Charbeat is] really user friendly both on desktop and mobile. In terms of being able to extract live data, it has been transformational. We are able to make live content decisions backed up by research from platforms which is relevant at the time of publication. The app makes it possible for me to stay in touch with performance when I am not working.

Support seems to be solid although there does not appear to be regional (ie. UK) support. One support enquiry I requested asking for an improvement to the interface was however, dealt with promptly and very helpfully and this surprised me a little as it was a UK request to a US support service

Alternatives Considered

Chartbeat

Larger analytics suites like Google Analytics and Omniture simply do not provide the kind of real-time data that Chartbeat does. I have used Parse.ly which has some interesting real-time features as well; I would say Parse.ly is similar in terms of ease of use, though Chartbeat does give you the feeling of using a best-in-class product.

Sendoso and Terminus are alike in that they both work to add "personalization" into Marketing. However, they are not competitors per-say. Sendoso personalizes the physical interactions (direct mail) while Terminus works on the digital landscape. I would say Terminus more competes with SEO or SEM, in which a user of Terminus is experiencing much less wasted dollars than that of SEM or SEO

Return on Investment

Chartbeat

  • The most positive impact is that it gives us realtime outage emails — faster than our server provider does. So we know within seconds if one of our sites is down. This has proven an invaluable part of Chartbeat
  • Another great feature of Chartbeat is the multiple sites dashboard, so I can see traffic to all my sites at once.

  • We are in the early stages of implementing Terminus' engagement metrics into actions and it difficult to evaluate the long term ROI.
  • I believe that the ROI will be substantial but hard to qualify as we retarget our marketing investments towards plays that have a better yield.
  • It certainly would be hard to return to a pre-Terminus based marketing program, which I think is a good indicator of its utility.
