Likelihood to Recommend

Coosto

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

Parse.ly

Parse.ly is well suited for page views and short timeline comparisons, as well as author reports, in addition to general traffic source patterns for content for media operations. I expect it would be less appropriate for ecommerce. I am also not aware of any potential for ad impression analytics, and am not sure of that is a capability.

Pros

Coosto

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

Parse.ly

  • I like most how you can actively see where traffic is coming from, whether it's a specific tweet or website that hyperlinks to a story. Parse.ly is amazingly specific with this sort of thing
  • The design is terrific and you can easily shift between seeing the top performing stories of the day and the top performing stories of the past ten minutes

Cons

Coosto

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

Parse.ly

  • The URLs that list where some traffic came from (i.e. Twitter) are sometimes hard to read.
  • It would be great to see more detail of traffic sources. For example, if a spike of views come from Twitter it would be great to see if it is a specific tweet or account the bulk of views are coming from.

Getting support from Parsely is so easy. They are super responsive and really go out of their way to make sure they get you to a solution you're happy with. In the rare event that what you need is impossible, they actually record your feedback and actually get it to the people who could act on it. I've even had them get back to me later to get more information about a feature I requested.

Alternatives Considered

Coosto

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

Parse.ly

One of the things users first say when they start with Parse.ly is how easy it is to navigate through a lot of data thanks to the design. Parse.ly also has several data points and metrics that their competitors do not track. The automated reporting also makes it much easier to review metrics on your own time, instead of having to stare at the dashboard all day.

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

  • Our audience has steadily grown since we got Parse.ly — particularly our mobile traffic. And the data helps reporters and photogs see what works with audiences, and what doesn't work as well as they perhaps thought. Knowing what readers really want to read has helped guide our news coverage.
