I've used @buzzsumo to help ID influencers interested in my key topics. #ContentChat (they're one of my all-time fave content resources)

Try the free plan of BuzzSumo. It's sufficient for our needs.

Originally I used BuzzSumo as my go-to tool for doing content and competitive research, but it's so much more now.

BuzzSumo is a great tool with a few different uses cases. You know the saying “You get what you pay for”. That said, depending on how you want to use Buzzsumo, there are a alternatives that are either free or is better at specific problems for a much more affordable price.

I am afraid BuzzSumo is too much of a comprehensive tool to be easily replaceable by a free tool, but there are paid tools that you could test for free to see if you’re willing to pay for them at the end of the day.Apart from content analysis, I know BuzzSumo can also be used for brand monitoring, influencer marketing, and competitor analysis. We use our tool to monitor our mentions and I highly recommend using any media monitoring tool, whether it’s BuzzSumo, Brand24, Mention, you name it.
