Coosto

Coosto is an excellent all platform social media management tool, in which you can do (almost) everything.
Margaret Massop | TrustRadius Reviewer

Parse.ly

For people working in online media, or digital content creators, the platform could help them understand their audience and allow them to interact with them in a user-friendly way. Since the digital media industry is booming, Parse.ly can allow the user and the content creators to meet each other's demands and reduce redundancies and bombard the users with unnecessary content.

Pros

Coosto

  • Quick, easy to use SQL based search functionality.
  • Simple interface with useful predesigned measures.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Parse.ly

  • Real-time audience measurement--Parse.ly helps us understand how many people are on our site now and how this compares to our usual performance. By ensuring we improve on standard performance, we can grow our numbers.
  • Reports--setting up automated reports that can be sent to team members enables us to inform them at a glance what stories have performed well. This keeps them engaged and encourages them to post content more likely to perform well.
  • Analysis of performances--everyone can access their statistics, encouraging them to improve their reach and dwell time of their stories and better understand what has done well.
  • Overview across time--it is easy to compare how you have performed over set periods (e.g., month-on-month or week-on-week), making it easy to set targets for growth.

Cons

Coosto

  • The dashboard is only useable in full screen, not in compartments
  • Rather expensive
Bram Koopman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Parse.ly

  • Needs better social tracking, what post/group is generating traffic rather than just which platform.
  • Scheduled email reports could provide more context, similar to what's available on a site's landing page.
  • The overlay function is very limited and even more temperamental, not a valuable tool.

As an employee, this is difficult for me to comment as I am not directly funding or making these business decisions. However, it is a tool many get on with for surface level data that is useful to editorial teams.

The Parse.ly platform is very user-friendly and easy to use. User management is simple, and reporting setup only takes a few minutes. They provide very helpful documentation for implementing the scripts on your site and have great customer support to help with custom development such as implementing their content recommendation engine.

I rate this question this way solely because I haven't requested any support. I feel where I will eventually get support would be when we take Parse.ly up on some training that is being offered. We are looking to do that at some point after the first of the year and when our schedules support it.

Alternatives Considered

Coosto

Coosto is more powerful than the version of Hootsuite we used.
Margaret Massop | TrustRadius Reviewer

Parse.ly

We tried Google Analytics and Google Data Studio before, and it was so complicated to set up we needed to hire experts to do it. Even then the performance was slow and the tools unintuitive to use. Many people have a blog they want to measure, we're not reinventing the wheel here, and Parse.ly is designed to deliver an excellent experience doing just that.

Return on Investment

Coosto

  • Positive impact on communications strategies.
  • Negative impact as product is often used for collecting metrics. Most of Coosto's metrics shouldn't be used for strategic or design decisions.

Parse.ly

  • Sometimes in meetings our editorial director will point out stories that didn't perform well. To us, that means readers don't really care about the topic, so we'll pivot away from writing about that in the future. That might not be "business objectives" though.
