Likelihood to Recommend

Opal

I honestly cannot recommend this tool enough. Opal is such a valuable tool for brand content creators and there is nothing like it available. If you're serious about content marketing and have a need to find ways to collaborate, plan and provide more visibility among teams, then Opal really is the only way to go. One more thing that's not being mentioned: The tool is simply amazing but it's only as amazing is the team behind the tool. Their customer support and willingness to quickly be in touch when needed is a key feature within itself. Seriously, such a good team of people.

Stackby

Stackby is very versatile with many uses cases. Once we started using this tool in our office, we were able to replace all our Excel-related procedures, which I never thought would be possible. Would recommend to any person or business that uses Excel heavily.

Pros

Opal

  • Content planning: you can look at one asset and see how it is being used across multiple channels by multiple teams.
  • Content collaboration: it is really easy to see what other people and teams are contributing to an asset, or how they are using it. We can also duplicate content that was created by another team to use as a starting point in our own content collaboration.
  • High level/big picture overview: Opal allows us to see content that is being created, planned and scheduled very easily; it goes beyond social content (which we can also see in Sprinklr) to show us content created across multiple channels.

Stackby

  • Ability to collaborate with team members on the same spreadsheet
  • Ability to integrate multiple tools for centralized utilization (i.e. Facebook, Google Analytics, project management, etc.)
  • Ability to send SMS and messages using integration with Twillio and Whatsapp
  • All spreadsheets/databases securely saved in the cloud instead of on local hard drive(s)

Cons

Opal

  • No publishing capabilities, for the most part.
  • No analytics tie-ins.
  • Rather pricey.
  • Requires someone to really manage the structure in order to keep the tool organized and use it effectively. When this is done right, though, it's worthwhile.

Stackby

  • How a stack is displayed after embedding into another page using their provided script. Currently, it shows the rows in a completely different layout.
  • Currently, no support for custom domains.
  • Cannot customize cell colors. Currently, can only change colors for predefined texts within a cell.
  • Lack of integration with Google ads or YouTube ads. Currently, only integration with Facebook ads exists (although I believe more will be added later).

Alternatives Considered

Opal

You get for what you paid for. Opal has more features

Stackby

We chose Stackby over Airtable primarily because Airtable does not currently have the option to pre-fill default data in a cell. This feature alone is a huge time saver and allows us to skip cells that contain necessary, but redundant data.

Return on Investment

Opal

  • Opal allows for more discipline in marketing as teams are better aligned on messaging and big moments.
  • Opal cuts down on communication breakdowns and mistakes, which in the end leads to more happy customers.
  • I think Opal provides the team with more confidence as everyone is on the same page. With everything in one place rather than communications being lost in emails, etc., everyone is more efficient and can work knowing that there is one source of truth.

Stackby

  • Saves a bunch of time with use of pre-filling cells
  • Helps facilitate collaboration on stacks and spreadsheets
  • Keeps data uniform with use of predetermined drop-down selection
  • Reduces human error
