Slack Notifications, Youtube, Reviews Monitoring, Zapier (September Updates)

📌 Get your competitors’ updates on Slack! 📲

We know how important it is to be connected with your competitors’ updates and to receive notifications about their actions just in time so you can make decisions for your good.  You’ll not receive competitors’ updates only on your email and timeline, but also on a chosen Slack Channel.

This month, we’ve just launched Slack Notifications so that you can send your competitors’ updates directly to a chosen Slack Channel. This feature will allow you to share your competitors’ moves with your colleagues or within your team.  You can add this integration from your Account Settings – Slack Integration. Right after the integration is completed, you’ll start receiving updates.

📌 Curious to know what reviews do your competitors receive? 👀

With our new feature, available in trial and agency plan, you can monitor what people say online about your competitors’ products and services.

Checking your competitors’ reviews could be a helpful technique to find new customers for your services/business and to gain valuable insights on how you can improve your brand. Keep an eye on what customers are writing about your competitors and notice what are they doing good or bad and see how you can improve your online reputation, but also your entire business.

Are people leaving bad comments about your competitors? Are your competitors responsive to their comments? Analyze your competitors’ reviews and use these insights to develop your online image and to attract customers. Use this feature to improve your users’ experience, your services, and to develop your business.

We support more than 70 reviews sites. After you sign in, we’ll discover automatically for you four review sites for each competitor (also you can add them manually from DOMAINS & COMPETITORS – EDIT), and as soon as the data is imported, you’ll be able to see their reviews on your timeline. Once a competitor receives a new review, you’ll be notified.


📌 Start monitoring your competitors’ YouTube channels

Track on your timeline, your competitors’ YouTube posts, and get an insight into their YouTube content. You’ll be notified whenever a competitor posts a new video on their YouTube channel. All you have to do is to add the YouTube link for each competitor. Once the data is imported, you’ll get insights on their posts, frequency, engagement, #hashtags, and more.

Go to each competitor’s settings and add their YouTube channel link to start tracking his activity.


📌 Connect Competitors App with Zapier

Go to Account Settings and connect Competitors App with Zapier to automate your work and be more productive, without losing a competitor update.

Competitor finder & new timeline filters

When it comes to developing new features, at Competitors App, we rely on our users’ feedback, and we’re always trying to facilitate their process of monitoring competitors’ marketing activities. Here are our latest platform features:

Ignore new web page alerts from timeline

Ignore any new web page URL that contains a pattern chosen by you. The page and details related to it will be omitted from the timeline page and email report. In this way, you’ll filter the available data according to your preferences and needs.

For example, if you’re not interested in receiving notifications regarding the Pricing page or Features page, copy-paste the website link to “New Webpages URL Ignored Pattern,” and you’ll stop receiving notifications about the Price/Features. Anytime you want, you can start re-monitoring the ignored URL by moving the links on the left side to “Website Change Monitoring.”

New competitor finder selection keywords

Find new competitors starting from a keyword. All you have to do is to make sure that you check the particular keyword/s, and soon, you’ll be able to monitor new competitors who use the same keyword/s as you.

We choose to develop this feature as an essential need for entrepreneurs and companies. Nowadays, businesses should always be aware of their possible and future competitors on the market to make further decisions and to polish their strategies after gathering competitors’ insights.

We understand that finding online competitors for a particular business is not an easy task, especially when it’s done manually. This feature comes as an easy and quick method that helps users with their competitive research.

Filter your timeline according to your interest

Choose what you want to see on your timeline based on your needs and interest. Now you can select a particular feature or focus just on a competitor.

The filter helps you to organize your timeline and your competitors’ data. All you have to do is to select a particular feature if you’re interested in seeing on your timeline only updates regarding that specific feature. Leave unchecked that/those feature/s that you want to hide from your timeline.

For example, if you’re interested in monitoring Social Media updates of Samsung, all you have to do is to select the particular competitor, Samsung, and the Social Media feature. Moving forward, you can even choose a specific Social Media channel for a more detailed overview.


The main goal of those new features is to facilitate the process of tracking all your competitors’ moves on Competitors App and helping you to organize your competitors’ data better.


Next steps

YouTube monitoring, a new Social Media feature that will keep you updated with your competitors’ activity on YouTube. You’ll be able to see on your timeline, in real-time, all videos posted by competitors and details regarding engagement.

Reviews, the feature will show on your timeline what people say online, on different review sites, about your competitors’ products and services.

Launching Slack integration, allowing you to receive notifications on your competitors’ moves directly in a Slack channel. This feature helps teams and users who usually share competitors’updates within the team. So every time a competitor makes a move, you’ll be notified of your email, timeline, and Slack.
