Likelihood to Recommend

Comscore Xmedia

The ability to drill-down locally is incredibly insightful. As mobile and other channels continue to improve, so has the platform and its accompanying reporting features. Data could be released in a more timely fashion so the numbers are more current and in-line with real-time viewership.

Impact

I'd like to point out that we don't like the inability to easily set up quick affiliate campaigns for our partners via email across promos. We are software developers and we sell software to audiences of other software companies. This way we can provide our solution to more people. But Impact doesn't have a very easy to way to create a special link for a particular partnership with a fair 50/50 split. Or at least I wasn't educated enough for them to do this.As mentioned previously, Impact will not bring you a ton of quality affiliates without you doing the actual work. But if your product craves to be resold by others – I recommend Impact if you're looking for a good affiliate management system.

Pros

Comscore Xmedia

  • Allows users to measure a total audience views across multiple platforms, and take those platform-specific views and convert them into a single, translatable metric.
  • The platform presents the data so that a user is not only looking and inferring action or viewership across multiple platforms but through a single identifier that clarifies or makes sense of that cross-channel data.
  • Allows you to slice up a single campaign and surmise how it will perform across various subsets of media.

Impact

  • Dedicated affiliate management dashboard. It has a ton of great details for those who heavily rely on affiliate sales.
  • Impact seems to be very user-friendly towards new affiliates. This is important because many partners can be new to reselling your product.
  • Huge database of affiliates and companies that you can find to partner with and cross-sell your products.

Cons

Comscore Xmedia

  • Initially, it was hard to detect how many people actually saw the ads (this was not the most intuitive element) but the product has continued to improve over time with more discernment.
  • Could still improve the user interface, the overall comScore platform isn't the most user-friendly so it can be easy to get lost or go down a rabbit hole and not be clear on how to get back to a set of previous results or data.
  • Reporting could have faster load times.
  • Easier data visualization sorting or internal sharing options.

Impact

  • Impact doesn't do a good job of filtering out trashy affiliates. In other words, it's not going to bring you a ton of quality affiliates without you doing the actual work. For example, we receive tens of low-quality coupon based websites that for some reason have 5-star ratings.
  • Background check and sales channel details from potential affiliates could be more transparent. It would be really helpful to see how the reseller plans to promote your products upon checking their application.
  • Create a direct link to a partner that you've negotiated with privately is not as easy is it was with FastSpring, when they had an internal solution (before partnering up with Impact).

Alternatives Considered

Comscore Xmedia

comScore Xmedia is by far the most granular and local offering. Google Analytics is a solid supplemental to the real campaign data you glean from comScore and SimilarWeb presents a nice high-level picture of the total viewership from a recurring or historical perspective.

Impact

  • We receive 2,500+ clicks every month thanks to affiliates from Impact
  • Since we started using Impact, our revenue grew by 7%
  • Due to some fraud issues, we've lost around $500 from partner. Though, Impact was very helpful in taking our hand and walking us through to solve this asap.
