"Get more reviews, case studies, and testimonials with no headache...(seriously)"

What do you like best?

Advocately is a super easy to use tool for generating more reviews or any other customer advocacy you're looking for. We funnel our promoters into Advocately and now we have a one-stop shop to start generating automated emails to request case studies or reviews. Our CSMs are able to login as well and get the scoop on what's going on with their customers and request testimonials directly using Advocately's gmail integration.

What do you dislike?

Nothing right now, I hope the best for their growth!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were having trouble generating a lot of reviews to compete with more highly visible companies with advocate marketing in place. Advocately was able to automate all of that and stop us from asking people for reviews that already reviewed us. They also offer great support and advice on NPS and all things review related.

"Advocately is an advocate for your customer experience"

What do you like best?

There are many parts to love about advocately - the clean design, the aggregation of review sites, but most importantly, the service and support we get from advocately is the real kicker! Advocately helps you, as you know, get a list of all reviews of your product. It takes the drudgery out of finding and updating your review list and helps you focus on what you do best: creating a world class customer experience and getting your customers to "advocate" for your business!

What do you dislike?

There is not anything I dislike about advocately. They have been a wonderful partner in our review gathering process. The service works well, there has been no down time, and it has been a boon we didn't know we needed! The only thing, if I had to put a dislike (and it isn't even bothersome) is that it can't get some reviews from places like twitter and facebook. But that is such a small thing compared to all the pros!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everything about this app is a breeze and straightforward. Most importantly, the CEO is the most approachable, kind, and engaged dude you will ever meet. He really listens, incorporates feedback, and is making a world-class product. The support and service alone is worth it - it helps, too, that the app is so thoughtfully and considerately designed and executed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We get a ton of reviews because we aggressively have our agents asking our customers to review our product. I don't mean 10s of 20s of reviews but thousands every month. As you can imagine, keeping track of all the reviews, where they come from, where we are at in comparison to our competitors etc is a position unto itself. With advocately, we save tons of time trying to collate and understand all the reviews and focus on our brand and what people are saying about time tracking and our app specifically. It is a huge time saver and helps you spot trends in the word of mouth about your product. Highly recommended!

"Incredibly simple, but powerful tool to acquire positive customer reviews"

What do you like best?

Based on SatisMeter NPS, Advocately absolutely geniously helped us double the number of positive reviews in Capterra for just 1 month. We love personal attitude and great service. The system is easy-to-use, we enjoy UX. We look forward to bringing new reviews about Mailigen. Because review websites and reviews are one of the best traffic sources for us.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to say here. We are wishing good luck and future growth for Advocately.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It always was a problem how to get reviews in different review websites. We were trying to ask our loyal clients to write their feedback in certain resources, but didn’t get much from this experience.

I think Advocately is smart solution for any business. It is not limited campaign, you are getting positive reviews from your clients all the time and only from those, who rated our service 9 or 10.

"Great Brand Management Options"

What do you like best?

It is very instrumental in managing your campaigns by providing flexible features. I absolutely love how easy it is to import your contacts, grow out your connections and scale the progress through this. It works well on all the devices and is an overall excellent interface.

What do you dislike?

It is very new and does not have features to get receptive feedbacks. However, it has been very helpful and we have enjoyed using it greatly!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this for campaign management and marketing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used this to reach out to potential employees and promote the e-learning and physical tutoring campaigns through this. It has been very helpful in growing the network and improve the PR.

"A great tie in with net promoters"

What do you like best?

Advocately helps us to automate the process of reaching out to get reviews from customers that love our product. Another feature I like is the ability to explore which users are our net promoters. This is much potential to continuously refine our market segments using this tool.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything I dislike at the moment. The product solves one problem and solves it well. Having such focus is a breathe of fresh air from other products that try to do too many things but do them poorly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reaching out to customers that our product has been successful with should be an ongoing process. Advocately takes away the load and helps us to automate the process. This has been really helpful in consistently getting advocates from our customer base to review our product. As net promoters, they are often more than willing to help us promote our brand by leaving a review.

"Great tool to get you more reviews. Fantastic Support."

What do you like best?

We came across Advocate.ly as a suggestion from friend to try it out for getting more reviews on websites like G2 Crowd, Capterra and GetApp. We tried it out and the tool has been awesome. The team is small but really nimble and are updating features really fast. Patrick has been super responsive and helpful in getting tasks moved and implemented. The team is very hands-on in providing demos and help us implement the necessary campaigns.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about the tool. The tool is at an early stage and will grow into a better shape in the future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Advocately, we have been able to scale up reviews on different review platforms. Definitely helpful tool.

"New to advocate marketing but am now a believer"

What do you like best?

At Saleswhale, we are new to NPS and getting customer reviews on G2 Crowd. At first, I was concerned that it was going to be hard to get all these up and running manually, but Advocately has made getting setup a breeze for us.

And within the first day of getting setup on Advocately, we ran our first NPS survey, got dozens of responses, which Advocately then automatically reached out to - and we got our first 5 star review on that day itself.

Support from Patrick has been top-notch, and he was very patient and helpful in walking us through the entire process from start to finish.

What do you dislike?

I was about to say lack of Slack integration until Patrick showed me that they have built it in, and got us integrated. They move fast on the product and engineering side - and I look forward to seeing more features from the Advocately team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a B2B SaaS company, seriously, just use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For a startup of our size, it would have required a lot of manual work to get to where we are now with Advocately, and we managed to get so much done within a short amount of time thanks to their platform.

"Advocately has changed how we take reviews!"

What do you like best?

I used to go through a lot of steps to get reviews. I was probably spending 5-6 hours a month to get reviews. There were so many manual steps and we would barely get any reviews out of it. It always felt worth it because our Brand and reputation is very important to us. Now, with Advocately, I just set up campaigns and they take care of the rest. We initially tested it out on 40 users and within that we produced 20 reviews!!!!! The same subset of users would probably would have produced 2 or 3 reviews within my old process.

Also, the support has been amazing! Patrick has extremely helpful at setting us up and guiding us through the onboarding process. He has been very flexible in the hours he has helped and I've always very quickly got a response to questions.

What do you dislike?

It's a newer product, so I feel like initially there's a bit more hand holding to get onboarded on the product. Saying that, the support was amazing and Patrick helped me get fully up and running very quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's changed how we get reviews. Simple integrations with other products and great support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A lot of manual work to get a very small subset of reviews. I was spending too many hours a month to get a very small amount of reviews, but with Advocately I've been able to get way more out of less work. It's saved me so much time!

"Advocately has made creating an advocate marketing program a breeze."

What do you like best?

As a Community Manager I am responsible for crafting and executing our advocate program. Perhaps the most challenging aspect of creating an advocate program is finding the advocates. Advocately has eliminated challenge. The advocates, through Advocately, came to me! Not only do I now have a growing list of advocates, but I am able to see exactly what they love about our software. This enables me to push feedback to the marketing, development, and customer success teams so that we can enhance what people love.

Aside from the actual product, Patrick and Lachlan are amazing. Support, response times, and personality are all 10/10. You guys rock!

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike. As Advocately is relatively new, the features will continue to grow with the feedback of users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it. If it doesn't have every feature on your wish list just let the Advocately team know. They are so receptive to feedback and customer insight.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting good reviews isn't easy. It takes time, consideration, and often gets pushed aside by other projects. Advocately does the asking and consideration for us, so that it doesn't get pushed aside.

Along with the massive help Advocately has provided me with our advocate marketing plan, it has also enhanced our SEO efforts. Many of the organic search results we obtained are fueled by customer reviews. Social proof is a HUGE influencer in our marketing efforts.

Another extremely important aspect of Advocately is that we are able to identify our users who don't love the product. This gives us the opportunity to reach out to provide further support so that they can learn to love our software. As a company is it SO important to listen to what users experience and Advocately makes this so easy.

"Successful NPS Campaign!"

What do you like best?

Advocately has provided us on the best insights to run our NPS campaign and to generate the reviews that are essential for customer advocacy in the SaaS solutions industry.

They identified what works best for us in terms of getting a favorable response rate from the NPS surveys and we really have moved forward from there.

What do you dislike?

Advocately ihas been working with us with a Tailor Made Approach to our NPS Campaign, and this is not something which is readily available.

Most NPS Products in the market are just products with limited advisory on best practices, organizations will need to invest time to find the best way to implement their campaigns successfully.

What Advocately can bring in the future to their clients, are stellar examples of NPS campaigns execution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to be able, in the first place, to have a suitable medium to be able to encourage customers to provide us with their NPS scores and that was achieved.

Advocately has provided further set up automation to reach out to our NPS Promoters, with the end goal to generate Customer Advocacy in terms of Reviews and Referrals

"Automate your reviews, saves you tons of time, highly recommend!"

What do you like best?

Getting reviews is an integral part of any (online) business these days but the process can be very time consuming and hard. With Advocately the entire process is automated which is a huge work load lifted. After the initial setup you just let the system do the work for you, the support is great and the product works like a charm. I can highly recommend Advocately to anyone who relies on reviews!

What do you dislike?

Hard to come up with anything I dislike, if pressed I would say that it would be good to have a simple explainer video of 1 minute which would quickly show the value and functionality - in the beginning it is a bit hard to understand exactly what Advocately does :-)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you know where you would like the reviews to be gathered and set up the platform before you engage Advocately.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reviews are not just good for your online reputation but offer other benefits, like showing star ratings in your AdWords ads, as well. Getting these reviews is a part of any good digital marketing strategy but usually is very hard to get rolling, Advocately takes care of this process for you and saves you tons of time and effort.

"Game Changer"

What do you like best?

Advocately facilitates a continuous flow of great reviews of your product or service on the top review sites across the web. We have had excellent service and it is clear that Advocately is committed to getting the best results for their clients. They have a vision for this space that I have not seen before, and it is a welcome innovation.

What do you dislike?

This is not a true dislike, but the success of Advocately for us depends on at least one other integrated service, which we fortunately already had in place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The success of Advocately ultimately falls back on quality of your own product or service. Advocately facilitates amplifying your advocates, but you do need to deliver a quality product or service that deserves having advocates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are finally recognizing the value of having advocates for our product who thankfully already existed, but were not given the opportunity to act as advocates. Having this process be automated saves a significant amount of time vs. any alternative. It is also much more cost efficient than running separate campaigns with each individual review site.

"Effortless review fetching"

What do you like best?

It works exactly as intended. Promoters get pro-active outreach for review requests in a way that is not over-the-top. The team at advocately have made themselves available at every step in the onboarding journey as well. Great service

What do you dislike?

Not much at this point, we just need to figure out how best to integrate it into our other systems, particularly for our Customer Success team to follow up on the passive and detractor comments. No doubt I'll get the help I'm looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We went looking for a way to garner more reviews as they were severely lacking. We had cobbled together a fairly clunky and manual process and were going to roll it out. However, as soon as we found out about advocately, it all made sense. It's a well thought through workflow and it's very unobtrusive for our clients.

"Easy to setup, generating reviews on autopilot!"

What do you like best?

The setup of Advocately is super easy. It's just a matter of connecting a couple of tools we were already using and we were ready to go.

What do you dislike?

When the setup is done, it kinda runs on autopilot. So you only go into the application few times, and then it's sometimes hard to find what you exactly need. The live chat is handy in this case :)

"Simple, convenient -- it works!"

What do you like best?

Makes it easy to generate more product reviews for our SaaS tool. It's very easy to setup and follows a logical process. Our tool is multi-language and this is easily supported with Advocately.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. While their team is still building out new features that will may eventually become "core" to their platform, it already does the basics of what we need and their team is very responsive when helping us with additional needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generating more positive word of mouth marketing through software reviews.

"Advocately have been instrumental to our review strategy"

What do you like best?

The end to end service and process has been the highlight to my experience. Advocately has ensured our success by assisting us with implementing our review campaigns. They've consistently optimised our process to achieve our goals.

What do you dislike?

There is little that I dislike. Understanding exactly what each of the features means and the flow between them has been my only slight hindrance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a Saas company focused on growth, you need Advocately in your sales and marketing stack.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to effectively scale our review processes by encouraging our promoters to share their experience on various review websites. Previously this was a very manual exercise to connect and remind our promoters that we'd love their support. Now with Adovately we can politely reach out and explain how they could really help with our growth success by leaving a review of their experience.

What do you like best?

Being in Customer Success, it is extremely important to know how your customers feel about your product and service and getting constant feedback is absolutely necessary. With Advocately, we get an all-in-one platform that gives us the data we need to help us engage better with our clients.

"Great idea and good time saver"

What do you like best?

We were previously using engagement as a criteria for requesting a review (which we were doing manually). The blend of using NPS along with the automation Advocately provides means we are getting a higher volume of higher quality reviews for less work.

Very little. The product is currently quite feature-light but the future is bright and loads of potential.
