We tried other PR software before Prowly. Most of the other software was more expensive but less effective, far less user-friendly, and, frankly, not really worth the effort. That is why we will never go back. Prowly just makes everything easy and quickly accessible.

I don't know if it [Meltwater] is worth the negotiated price point of $7,000

...everything [in Meltwater] is an add-on and it is not always easy to determine what you get for the price you are being quotes.

Review source: Verified G2 Reviewer

It [Meltwater] was priced too high for the actual return for a small/medium sized business.

No hidden auto-renewal clauses

Prowly lets you turn off the auto-renewal for your monthly or yearly subscription at any time, with no hidden surprises.

Our contracts and cancellation policies are transparent and easy to understand—so you don't have to read the fine print.

Background Image

The fact that [Meltwater's] 60 day policy is buried within the terms of use, not present in the contract, and not communicated by the sales people is evidence that Meltwater is an extremely shady company.

Review source: Verified G2 Reviewer

I asked for [Meltwater's] contract and was shocked to see the termination terms aren't even listed on the main contract page - they are instead buried in a link, under topics such as spam. A link, of course, can be altered at any time.

Review source: Verified TrustRadius Reviewer

After weeks of "negotiation" we were [by Meltwater] threatened with legal action if we didn't compromise and spend an additional $2000 (as opposed to the $8000 they wanted us to pay for the year) to extend our contract partially through the end of the year.

Many editors and writers at major industry pubs, some in their roles for over 10 years, were missing [in Meltwater's database] - making us wonder how trustworthy the rest of the data could be.

about Meltwater's media database

The information [in Meltwater's database] is largely outdated and there are very few contacts in comparison to other databases.

Review source: Verified G2 Reviewer
about Meltwater's media database

The database/library of journalists/authors/publishers [in Meltwater] is not very large. We are always having to add people from scratch which is not easy or intuitive.

The best PR tool on the market


We tried a couple of PR tools but eventually chose Prowly and we are extremely happy with everything it provides - the features (especially brand journal!), customer support (very responsive), and the ease of use (all features packed in the great design and well-thought interface). I am pretty sure you will love Prowly once you try it!
