Overall Satisfaction with Rival IQ

Rival IQ is a tool that my team uses to report on our client/brand. It allows us to monitor our own performance, as well as competitor's performance across social media channels. It is helpful in that it provides context as to when the optimal time to post is to get the best engagement, and has a great historical backlog of data.
  • I really appreciate the ability to track all channels together, but also the ability to break it down and take a closer look at specific performance.
  • Provides a snapshot view of how the brand compares to the competition and allows us to make adjustments to optimize based on performance recommendations.
  • Allows you to compare periods of time to previous periods, without having to manually calculate. User friendly + efficient for a project/account manager to use, as well as analytics/data scientists.
  • I do wish more historical data was available. I think it only goes back 1-2 years, or when it was originally set up. Wish it were lifetime data for a channel.
  • Allows us to keep a pulse on the competition, which ultimately gives us favorable position with our client.
These products are similar, but don't provide the same friendly interface or analytical view of the social space. Both of the platforms above (Olapic + Track Maven) are great for social media users, influencers, and trend-data, but if you're looking at improving your own brands' performance, Rival IQ is the best bet.
I think it's a great tool to be used by any brand. The interface is user friendly, creating a safe space for account managers and social media managers alike. The only instance in where it wouldn't be optimal is if you're looking at very historical data, or tracking additional influencers (not competitors) or if you have multiple profiles (within 1 channel) to track.. But this suits our needs very well.
