NetBase Quid

In my use of [NetBase] Quid, I found the tool particularly suitable for curating pertinent content. It allowed me to develop more comprehensive analysis at a larger scale, all while substantially reducing the amount of research time needed. It is also a plus that [NetBase] Quid is delivered as a web app. I did some of my [NetBase] Quid work on a low-end Chromebook without issues.

I think that SimilarWeb can be used for companies or departments looking to get a greater sense of website and general online traffic for a certain brand, individual, etc. I think that the tool requires little to no training as it's easy to navigate and the interface is clean and precise.

Pros

NetBase Quid

  • Their NLP is very strong with the ability to distinguish subject in sentences and then apply analysis based on either the subject or sentence. Competitors lack strong NLP and often have lower degrees of accuracy.
  • The platform is highly flexible with dozens of ways to filter and cut the data. It is great for an analyst that really wants to deep dive into the data. However, the analysis done automatically by NetBase is also strong enough that less experienced users would still be able to gain insight with ease.
  • The customizable dashboards are perfect for client reporting and drastically reduce the amount of time spent preparing recurring reports and decks. These are also very flexible depending on reporting needs.

  • Traffic data: it helps understand traffic channel-wise data for all competitors, such as how many shares of paid and organic traffic are competitors getting, from display vs SEM, etc. in granular details.
  • Keyword data: it helps understand which keywords to focus on for both SEO and your paid marketing.
  • Market share and user segment data: it helps to plan new business categories, check your standing in your current business categories, etc.

Cons

NetBase Quid

  • Dashboards can only currently be exported as PDFs. It would be helpful to have a more read/writable format (eg. PPT) that enables us to combine Netbase's outputs with other sources, or to make them more consistent with our own branding (colours, fonts etc.)
  • The business model revolves around a limited number of login seats. I would like to be able to roll out the tool to make it available/accessible to more people in the business, but the pricing model makes this impractical/uneconomical.
  • Logging out users after a period of inactivity can be frustrating when multitasking/task switching and unsaved work is lost.
  • While Netbase's focus on language processing is its key strength, additional functionality around social analysis (eg. people who follow a brand account, users who talk about X are also likely to talk about Y) is somewhat limited.

  • Sometimes, web site visit traffic is inaccurate. This is learned by gaining access to a publishers GA to verify their traffic statistics
  • Would be helpful to know that if a site pays for traffic, the type of ads that are being used.
  • Not all competitive site are actual similar

We've had a good experience using the tool and have invested quite a bit of time training the internal team on how to get the most benefit out of it. There would need to be a compelling reason or business case to port over all of our existing topics and tool know-how to another platform.

Very simple to use, quick to pick up on the key principles, and a task-centric design (ie. Topics to set up what you want to analyze, Analysis to do the exploration/analysis, and Dashboards to pull results and findings together to generate reports.) All intuitive, drag & drop etc.

This is one of the most UI friendly tools out there. Their data presentation and analysis is top of the world. We have never had to give KT to any team to be able to onboard on to this tool. In fact, the data is sufficient enough to get newer insights every time you deep dive.

NetBase constantly updates the platform with features. The platforms ability to analyze complex social listening topics is exceptional. Its fast and gives you the ability to create standardized reports for a quick topic analysis. Additionally, the standard overview tab provides the topic at a glance and assists in quickly identifying areas to further analyze. Great product with excellent support behind it!

Support is just helpful and effective when you need them; we have only needed to contact them once about a misunderstanding while setting up our Market Analysis. Since we don't really contact them too often, it's hard to offer anything but a positive rating from the single positive experience we had with tech support.

We had an internal implementation meeting with the NetBase team as well as a business seat implementation for one of our clients. I would highly recommend having all stakeholders attend an implementation meeting as they can understand the power of this platform.

Alternatives Considered

NetBase Quid

Meltwater took too long to load whenever you had to change keywords, their customer service was not very responsive, and their interface was not very customizeable. We decided to search for a new software company and we invited many companies to present. We selected Netbase after a free trial for reasons stated earlier.

SimilarWeb PRO

We have not actually selected SimilarWeb PRO over other tools I mentioned above. We use all of the tools I mentioned: Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Mixpanel, and SimilarWeb PRO. For different tasks and goals, we use different tools accordingly. SimilarWeb PRO, comparing to other tools give good industry and market analysis.

Return on Investment

NetBase Quid

  • Positive - NetBase allows us to quickly gather a high level over view of a topic, which helps for new business pitch and being able to inform the account teams of basic information.
  • Negative - We have to use other tools to gather news, which affects our budget.
Scott Reitzel | TrustRadius Reviewer

SimilarWeb PRO

  • We haven't started using paid plan yet, so we have not spent money on the tool, just time
  • It didn't take much time to start using the software and it gave us some insights, so I would say we have a positive ROI
