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.

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

Curalate

  • Very intuitive/easy to use. Interface is well-designed.
  • Great content uploader with product tagging capabilities integrating Like2Buy.
  • Great customer service! Our rep is very knowledgeable and attentive.
Andrew Shusterman | 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

Curalate

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

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

Curalate

  • Decent increase in web traffic via the Like2Buy functionality.
  • Small increase in sales via Instagram posts featuring Like2Buy links.
Andrew Shusterman | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
