Likelihood to Recommend

Curalate

It is very well suited for scheduling Instagram posts, and tagging products from our eCommerce site using Like2Buy. We are just about to start using another product of theirs. Very competitive pricing.

Klear is great for doing some preliminary research when building out an influencer list. We've used it a lot for this and overall had pretty good success. We sometimes supplement with manual searching, but overall Klear has helped save a lot of time and labor on our end. I do prefer to manage influencer programs myself though, so I don't take advantage of the program's chat functionality, payroll capabilities, etc.

Cons

Curalate

  • Honestly, they are doing a great job, and I can't think of anything I could see them doing differently.

  • It rounds numbers to the nearest hundred (for instance, will report "1.4K Story views" rather than the true number).
  • I am based in the US and my representative is based in Israel, so there is a delay in response at times.

Based on 2 answers
Unfortunately, we have not had a great experience with customer support from Klear. In the sales process, they were very responsive and helpful, but when onboarded, it definitely changed. We are based in the US and our customer service rep is based in Israel, meaning our work hours barely overlap. Oftentimes we're waiting 24+ hours for a response, and when it's a time-sensitive issue (like the platform not pulling in Instagram Story data) we want it to be resolved as quickly as possible. Klear also has a chat feature for more immediate help, but we've experienced a similar situation there where it takes 12+ hours to get a response and it's usually from our customer service rep. Our rep is very nice, but also doesn't seem very knowledgeable about the platform, and usually can't provide an immediate answer to a question we ask and has to "check with her team."

Hootsuite is great, but Curalate allows you to schedule videos, which is a huge advantage. The Like2Buy integration is also key.

Klear, from Meltwater

From a price standpoint, Klear was more reasonable than competitors, and definitely a factor in our decision last year. We also liked that Klear was mainly a SaaS platform and allowed us to manage our own campaigns from start to finish. A lot of other influencer marketing platforms/companies offer services where they manage the campaign and influencer relationships. This is definitely handy, but by having the ability to manage programs in-house, it allows us to be more profitable.

Return on Investment

Curalate

  • Decent increase in web traffic via the Like2Buy functionality.
  • Small increase in sales via Instagram posts featuring Like2Buy links.

Klear, from Meltwater

  • Klear allows us to optimize our time spent in other areas, like strategy or execution, rather than manually looking for influencers.
  • Klear has helped us be more data-savvy and stand behind our influencer recommendations/programs with tangible numbers like audience demographics.
