DemandScience Activate is well suited for inclusion in paid media programs where there is an account-based focus. It's great to be able to pinpoint exactly the personas, job titles, and seniorities of those you're reaching, and see those names come through in acquisition reports. We see success in driving the right title paths into our database for nurturing.

I sold a few inbound marketing contracts with the expectation that I could find writers for the project on Zerys. We were looking for good writers that can understand the tone and branding of our business and after a few trials with some of the writers at Zerys, I finally found the one that understood us and then created amazing content in no time.
Read full review Pros They understand the marketing funnel and have created product to support each step of the journey. DemandScience is agile in how they work with their clients. They were willing to modify their processes to accommodate ours. Sales does a good job of identifying our needs and making product recommendations. Read full review The customization options for the written pieces you can request are endless and thorough. Some writers are very fast and effective, making our link-building process quicker. It provides notifications along every step of the writing process so that you always know where in the pipeline your content is. Read full review Cons We would like to see more proactive communication on what's working and what's not without requiring a meeting - regular reporting cadence to assess asset quality A dashboard view might be nice as well, again, so we can look at an asset and see how it's performing (or if it isn't) without having to wait on a rep to pull a report or schedule a walkthrough Read full review There are instances where the writers don't understand the article to be written and don't give you the content you are looking for. The auto reporting feature needs some work. Too many email alerts and no option to change that. Hard to find good writers. Often writers only loosely follow directions so you end up reworking their content anyway. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Our executives decided to not renew because we were not seeing the ROI they were looking for. However, our executives did not make the best decisions on the data Demand Science provided.
Read full review Usability
The leads were pretty straight forward. However, their appointment setting did not integrate well into our system and many of the meetings didn't occur. I had to chase a lot of prospects and many times Demand Science didn't provide direct dials.

I enjoyed working with the initial rep and campaign manager, but as the campaign manager left the company, there was a gap in expertise and customer care. This drop-off in quality of care was notified internally and caused team members to raise concerns. Hopefully, we will see improvements with the most recent change in campaign managers.

They did extremely well. However, our executives did a poor job in defining our ICP so we didn't get the maximum benefit out of it.

The quality of leads that we got from INFUSE media was truly horrible. The leads often did not meet our qualifications set that would qualify them as MQLs and if they did, when they were reached out to, we were told they had no interest in converting and that they didn't even remember clicking the ad. So, we did not know for sure where the leads came from and we could not convert them. None of this is a problem with DemandScience.

Access to many freelancer writers covering a wide range of topics and the relative ease with which you can manage the writing and editing process with a freelancer writer is good. I believe Zerys has acquired a talented group of writers that are well-versed in a diverse number of topics. Zerys is reliable, and the customer service response is fast, which I greatly appreciate. I do not believe Zerys' interface is as simple as it could be, however.
Read full review Return on Investment We have been able to grow our lead numbers with high quality leads at a reasonable cost We have been able to generate just the leads we want to support our Business Development team We have been able to get our content in front of our specific TAL Read full review Zerys has allowed us to grow our linkbuilding campaigns much more quickly than we would if we tried to create all of the content in-house. We save so much time hiring outside writers to write content rather than writing it ourselves. We are able to take on more projects than ever because we can rely on Zerys' writers to get things done on time. Read full review ScreenShots
