"Analytics, Influencer Mapping & Online Monitoring made easy. Very easy!"

What do you like best?

I love the ease and depth of monitoring available, for your own data, and that of your competitors. Also like the smart user interface and various features to map, track and understand your influencers. But probably the best thing about them is their customer service - the team is very open to feedback and over the last year or so, I have seen them adopt many new features based on feedback.

What do you dislike?

There is still no access to LinkedIn, which makes the data incomplete at times. Also, until recently they did not have downloadable reports. This was a let down. But not any more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should definitely consider it if you need

1. campaign- to-campaign monitoring in a smart, easy to use manner. Highly useful for social media pro/consultants who love to be hands-on but does not have the time and tenacity to crunch data and create reports every time.

2. slice, dice and organize your influencers/ followers and use the intel for inputs for your campaigns. (No other tool is as comprehensive in influencer mapping as Klear!)

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

1. Campaign reporting

2. Competitor Intelligence

3. Social Media Monitoring

4. Influencer Mapping

"Klear is Fantastic for Influencer Outreach"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to find the top influencers in almost any niche. I also love how easy it is to look at the top socially shared content from top brands.

What do you dislike?

So far there is really nothing that I don't like. It would be nice to export some of this data directly into a twitter ad but I am told some of that is in the pipe already :)

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

We use Klear for ideation. You want to kick butt at content marketing...look at works and does not work for the top brands and blogs in your niche.

You can easily see which posts are moving the needle and what topics resonate with their audiences. You should be making similar content.

We also use Klear for influencer outreach. If you can email your content to the right people they can help amplify your message much further than you can and with more credibility.

What Influencer Marketing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"It just makes social media so Klear...."

What do you like best?

- Ability to see how you rate in terms of engagement, popularity, talkative...

- Able to search for influencers in the community of your choice quickly and easily and, if you want, convert them into lists or follow/engage with them through the platform

- Easily analyse your community/network

- It's my one-stop shop for pretty much all of my community management needs (I can't schedule and easily respond to mentions but I have other tools for that....

What do you dislike?

- It's not something that we need right now, but being able to more easily integrate with Twitter/facebook ads would be awesome

- Listening/monitoring could be improved by having more parameters

- A search to see key buzzwords/hashtags/phrases in a specific industry: e.g: being able to put "developers" and not only see the influencers but see key words that you might want to monitor based on that search or based on the analysis of the company brand profiles

- Instagram, LinkedIn, G+, YT etc would be great to be added to it as well!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would particularly recommend this platform for start-up companies and those people looking for more than just a Social Media Strategy. I head up Events & Community at Paddle, and I don't know of another platform which offers me such an ease of use and such an array of Community Management possibilities. It is simply fantastic!

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

We are at the start of launching our marketing department and we are a start-up tech company aimed at developers. Therefore, right now, it is all about monitoring, finding conversations and sparking up convos and relationships with key influencers. This is great for understanding the community as it stands now and to see the potential AND...EASILY make that potential a reality.

I can't rave about it enough.

For where we are in the business right now, Klear offers me everything I need.

I have just moved from Twitter to Paddle, and the first thing I did, was say "We need Klear" - and we got it, then and there because I am so sold on the importance, and it was easy to relay and sell that importance to the CEO and my colleagues.

"I Can See Klearly Now Mine and My Client's Influence on Social"

What do you like best?

Jaime from Klear was a great contact, the customer support on Klear is fantastic and helpful. Klear quantifies influence with a score, reminiscent of Klout and Kred, but the presentation, ease of use and power of the platform speaks volumes. Everything feels useful and visually attractive for clients.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the historical data limitation. I realize that it is very expensive to house and save historical data, but again, in general that is a very expensive tall order that you can't expect for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do the free trial, request a demo and have fun!

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

Showing reputation management, return on investment with social media, change in influence over time, and showing impact with social media campaigns.

"Powerful tool to help my day-to-day branding"

What do you like best?

Klear's looks and functions as you would expect from a social analytics platform in 2015. It's slick, and almost everything I need is a click-away. It's specific insights on influential people is of great use to us.

What do you dislike?

Would love to see more networks supported as the platform grows

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you find yourself missing something, reach out to the team through support or directly Twitter. I found them to be highly responsive and positive.

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

Finding the right people in the tweet-o-sphere or social sphere in general. Our business deals with a very specific audience (special needs), so finding the right entry point for exposure is key.

"Excellent Dada Mining for Smart Marketing"

What do you like best?

Excellent social media insight metrics and elegantly designed. Great customer service. The analytics are great for understanding demographics and metric trends, as well as monitoring competition when needed.

What do you dislike?

Once in a while it doesn't pick up an account I'm looking for. I'd also like YouTube analytics included.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product will give you the analytics you need to help you use the data to do smarter marketing. I highly recommend it.

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

Social media management and growth for bands and businesses. The analytics helps me better understand what is working, and how fast growth (or dips) are occurring.

"Does not care about bought followers"

What do you like best?

Great UI and concept. Very powerful database and value.

What do you dislike?

Does not factor fake followers into its rating. Someone can have over 50% bought followers and it will still show an 80+ rating.

Countries % break down does not match with Deep.social's stats.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not rely on it 100%, look at your influencers carefully

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

"Great tool to get additional insights for Twitter users"

What do you like best?

Love the network breakdown analysis. The visuals are easy to understand and useful to include in presentations. The breakdown of types of tweets is useful to get a more in depth understanding of the nuance of how an individual interacts on Twitter.

The brand overview is also quite useful.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you have to manually refresh the profiles. It takes up additional bandwidth and makes the follower count information less reliable.

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

We use this in conjunction with an big data Influencer Identification tool to get additional texture and do quality assurance. This has increased the quality of data and data story that I'm able to relay to my clients.

"A BIG Fan!"

What do you like best?

KLEAR allows our team to keep track of analytics for several of our clients, our own accounts, trends and much more. The pdf of information to share with clients is a simple one- click feature. Clients love it. We love the service and product plus the affordability.

What do you dislike?

While it counts impressions it does not give an estimate of accounts reached. Also I would like to see who is participating and how often for a single hashtag- similar to hash tracking.com or Union Metrics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up!

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

The comparison feature is excellent to show analysis to clients. This is an affordable feature and very visually presented.

"Klear is one of my essential tools"

What do you like best?

I've been using Klear for years (since before the name change). It has several features I love. It helps give me a great snapshot of my own accounts and my competitors accounts to benchmark simply. It also helps me find the right kind of influencers to work with.

What do you dislike?

I wish that Klear included YouTube. That is really my only complaint.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure it's in your tool arsenal. Check it every day.

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

Klear helps me figure out benchmarking as well as unique influencers to reach out to in my area.

"Helps idenfity potential supporters & interested parties"

What do you like best?

Klear allows easy & clear access to the networks of others, specifically to power users in another network, so we can easily identify & connect with them.

What do you dislike?

Not all niches are "searchable", you can't always drill down as specifically as I'd like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it the trial. If you like to dive into analytics and can see the value in leveraging networks then Klear is super useful. If you're looking for a tool that will do "everything" for you, this is not it. Klear provides access to insights that you then need to decide how to use.

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

Managing our Twitter account and connecting with people who can help grow our social presence.

What do you like best?

With Millions of Profiles & 1000's of Categories, it makes it easier and Klearer to do social listening and to monitor specific influencers who are relevant to my industry.

What do you dislike?

I just want to use the power of Klear technology to unwrap other social networks :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a social monitoring solution to watch your brand grow against your competitors and connect you with millions of influencers in a very efficient manner then this is the only way :)

Klear is a solution which has already offered my clients some great insights on how they can promote their brands and diversify their social spend on Social Networks.

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

I am making new business relationships with social network gurus and this has helped me gain much more exposure to my various consumer brands and products

"Social Influencer search tool"

What do you like best?

Would be good to see more social networks added

"Twtrland is a great tool for monitoring analyzing and generating leads and tracking competitors"

What do you like best?

I think the best feature is that it's a tool you can use to directly track your competitors landscape and develop a corresponding strategy.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that the fees are not as competitive as other monitoring marketing options. But overall believe its worth the Fees.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Play around on the platform with the free trial to see what features are best suited for you

I think the navigation could be improved and editing capabilities for monitors could be improved.
