1.NinjaOutreach is more cost effective

BuzzSumo is not an incredibly expensive tool, but it isn’t cheap either. Their lowest plan is $99 per month, which right now is the same price as our Small Agency plan..

If you’re a small business or an individual, you might find that cost prohibitive. After all, it is just a software, and you are still required to do all of the work and marketing. $99 just gets you in the door, in the same way that our lowest plan gets you in the door at NinjaOutreach.

If you’re not sure if influencer outreach is going to be an effective marketing channel for you, you might be better off starting with our NinjaOutreach Blogger plan at only $69.

2.NinjaOutreach is more intuitive

Our social database has both Twitter and Instagram influencers, whereas BuzzSumo just has Twitter.

Twitter influencers are great, but there are certain niches where Instagram influencers tend to be more relevant. For example, photo heavy niches like:

  • Food
  • DIY
  • Fashion
  • Travel

That’s just to name a few. 

If your clients are in these niches, you might benefit from having access to an Instagram database in addition to Twitter.

3.NinjaOutreach has automated email outreach and follow up features

Tools like GroupHigh and BuzzSumo have a great database, no doubt about it. 

That said, NinjaOutreach has millions of websites in our database and growing, and always with the ability to import even more.

We have not only invested a lot in adding business lead contacts to our database, but we also have outreach features such as:

  • Custom templates
  • Open/Reply/Click tracking
  • Email history
  • Follow-up reminders
  • Sent/Not Sent Filtering

Plus other ways to effectively manage your outreach campaigns.

4.NinjaOutreach provides live support for all plans

Yep – NinjaOutreach customer service rocks. Generally, Support Ninjas respond to everything within 20 minutes. This is not a guarantee, but that’s how it typically plays out. 🙂

We even have a way to book a call with us in the app itself:

Bottom Line

BuzzSumo is one of the most popular influencer and content research tools out there, but it’s not perfect. And that’s where NinjaOutreach comes in. 

Where BuzzSumo falls short, NinjaOutreach delivers with a cached prospect database, live content prospecting (add any real-time results that you need), Instagram search, and the option to crawl for contact info.

BuzzSumo may be cheaper (by only a few dollars), but it has no outreach features at all, making it purely a prospecting and research tool. NinjaOutreach, on the other hand, lets you automate outreach campaigns and follow ups.
