OneUp Ratings


Birdeye

Birdeye seems like a huge platform where you get to manage social media posts, reviews, and even listings.

It also boasts to leverage AI to craft texts and images for your social media posts. The reason why I'm writing like this is that they don't publicly share a feature or price list where you can transparently see what is offered and what is not.

I got the impression that they're either doing everything tailor-made or a bit shady (no offense, Birdeye!)


Pricing of Birdeye

Custom quotes based on features needed. This can be a drawback for businesses on a tight budget, as it's difficult to compare pricing upfront with other tools.

Downsides of Birdeye

  • Non-transparent pricing.
  • Some users report a complex interface.

Birdeye Ratings


Brightlocal

Brightlocal is a comprehensive SEO platform that offers a suite of tools, including features that can be informed by AI.

While it might not have dedicated AI-powered content creation or sentiment analysis functionalities like some other options, Brightlocal uses AI to analyze competitor data and research keywords. This data can then be used to optimize your Google Business Profile for better local search ranking.


Pricing of Brightlocal

  • No free plan.
  • Paid plans start at $39/month.
  • Offers a 14-day free trial.
  • You can go for only the citation builder for $2/site.
  • Active sync and GMB post scheduler is offered at $50/month.

  • Not completely an AI-tool.
  • Complicated pricing.
  • Slow report generation.

Brightlocal Ratings

DYNE boasts to use AI for;

Business Profile Manager by InfoTalks

Business Profile Manager is actually an Android app that helps you manage your Google Business Profile listings across multiple locations with several features including scheduling your Google Business Profile posts.

It offers some nice AI features, like auto-replying to Google Reviews and building web citations. But the pricing part is a bit weird.


Pricing of Business Profile Manager
