Likelihood to Recommend

Crowdbabble

You can evaluate and solve problems connected to clients' social accounts in real time. You are able to show not only the issue but why something is an issue in the first place. The benefit is that our clients are fully informed and aware of our transparency.

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

Crowdbabble

  • You are able to come up with engaging content that appeals to social followers. This helps increase the organic reach of our clients on their social channels.
  • Reports are really customizable, easy to share with clients.
  • Tremendous customer support. I had a skype call with the founder!

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

Crowdbabble

  • Pinterest support is lacking, could be more robust.
  • Reports could offer more customization, sometimes elementary.
Chandler Elmore | 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.

I find Parse.ly to be generally easy to navigate for the basics. I tend to get lost in the capabilities of reports and have found them to not produce necessarily what I thought they would produce. As I have written before, this may be more a function of lack of training on my part.

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

Crowdbabble

Buzzsumo shows you the most shared links and key influencers for any topic or website. Crowdbabble is more about overall account health and reporting.

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

Crowdbabble

  • It can be seen as redundant to the in-house reporting done by most of the social platforms.
  • Its enterprise costs more than some clients might be willing to cover.
Chandler Elmore | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
