What do you like best?

Respona has really been created with a view to build relationships and find connections where you are supporting mutual relevance. So many platforms like a Pitchbox treat outreach as a simple numbers game, which it can be at times but I find the real gold is connecting two organizations or people where it makes sense. Ultimately that's what we are all looking for to try and grow our work and certainly what Google responds to the best. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Dislike is not the right word. I'd like to see all the blogs and knowledge base in one central location and at the top of my wish list would be a Respona University to help us onboard new team members and bring them up to speed on Respona best practices for superior results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Creating an automated process for finding fresh opportunities that can be reviewed by a team member for relevance. The benefit is getting that email tell you that you have new opportunities fresh out of the oven waiting for you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Respona is an incredibly helpful tool for anyone looking to run PR and/or link building campaigns. It saves me hours of time per week by replacing all of the manual work I used to do when it comes to not only finding target/relevant sites but also by automating the process of finding accurate and relevant contact information. I have now been able to eliminate many steps from my process and automate most of it thanks to Respona and just let all the positive responses roll into my inbox -- huge game changer! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, I have zero complaints about Respona. Any time there have been any doubts or minor glitches, the team at Respona has been lightning fast to respond and resolve. If you are using Respona with proper personalization in your campaigns, you will eventually end up pausing your campaigns because the results will be epic! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Finding accurate and relevant contact information for link building / guest post outreach targets, as well as several steps that once required manual work and took hours of time to complete per week. With Respona, I am able to automate the entire process and all I have to do is respond to the emails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The automation feature for finding the right contact information. The way the tool is built, you feel safer that the prospects you're going to reach out to are the right ones. In a world of spam and unsolicited emails, Respona helps you build relationships by sending highly-personalised emails to the right people. This improves the data of your campaigns as well, since you're not reaching out to the wrong people. By trysting Respona's algorithm, you're steps ahead when it comes to link prospecting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing we don't like about the tool so far. We believe that the way Respona is built is really smart and we can only witness improvements in terms of the product's capabilities since we started using it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're building links for your own website or for you clients, you should start using Respona. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The best thing about Respona is that it saves you a lot of time trying to find the right prospects for your link building campaigns. And, it does it in a fully automated way, without having to use different software and spend time doing manual work. Traditionally, link building campaigns involve using different software (e.g., software for backlink data, software for outreach). With Respona, you have all the tools you need in one place. That, along with the fact that we don't have to do manual work anymore (e.g., for finding the right contact information) are the main problems Respona's solving for us.

What do you like best?

The product solves a real need for me -- find and connect with opportunities for high quality backlinks. Beyond that, the customer support is over-the-top great! I continue to be impressed with how well they listen to customer feedback, mine in particular. Many of the issues and improvements I've personally suggested have been implemented or are in process of being implemented. This is such a good feeling as a customer -- to be heard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I's a newer product so there are some usability issues, periodic bugs and the interface can be confusing at first. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Need for me was to scale my content marketing outreach. I've gotten this 10-fold, but also learned a lot from their team about best practices. Our domain rating has grown dramatically during the 6 months using Respona. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Respona has helped us automate much of our outreach, especially on link-building. Identifying opportunities, finding the right person to contact and sending the emails that will get responses. It has allowed us to scale our efforts and reduce the work needed for high-quality link-building.

We don't like doing mass low-quality outreach, and really qualititive SEO work and reaching out for partnerships takes a lot of time. Using Respona, the most important factor is time saved while keeping high quality personalized messages and follow ups.

It still needs time to go through the process, but it cuts it down almost at half. It was also very easy to train a junior member of our team to use Respona, who was not experienced in outreaching, and she was able to use it with very little assistance in a little over a week, multiplying the value we get from there! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are still a few refinements to be made and improvements in the discovery process (finding relevant opportunities automatically), the opportunities still need filtering. But we are using Respona for almost a year and the progress the team has made is incredible, and trust this will be even better soon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are unsure about using Respona, the team is incredibly responsive. Just reach out to them and ask for assistance on how to use their tool and they will respond and help you get value out of it, whatever your goals are! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It makes the process of outreaching fast and easy. No need to look into several sources to find the right content and person to reach out. It's all there easy and at hand. It saves incredible amounts of time, and a junior marketer can do the work of a senior outreacher with Respona. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
