Why Choose BrandMentions over Hashtagify?

BrandMentions will be the first to report all the mentions about your hashtag, brand, and competitors in the news & social media.

BrandMentions delivers much better results and extensive coverage than other services I've used. It monitors global coverage which saves time and delivers a quick snapshot of all coverage. Highly recommended.

Why Should You Choose 

BrandMentions over Hashtagify

If you’re here because you’re looking for Hashtag Popularity, Trends and Correlations, then you’re already doing the right thing. Because here, you’ll find a product that will help you find out everything that is being said about your hashtag, anywhere on the globe.

We want to give a big up to the people from Hashtagify for building a solid product.

Of course, there are a lot of differences between BrandMentions and their product. But the biggest differences are the data quality and the historical extraction of hashtag mentions.

Top Reasons Why Companies

Choose BrandMentions over Hashtagify

1.-BrandMentions picks up way more hashtag data than Hashtagify

At the end of the day, this is why people use a hashtag monitoring tool: to get ALL the mentions about their brand, and stay assured knowing that they are aware of everything that is being said about them online. Here's a direct quote from one of our clients: Compared to other services, with BrandMentions we really get a nice amount of extra hashtag mentions out of it.

2.-With BrandMentions you get access to the historical data no other tools provide

While other similar tools, like Hashtagify, are targeting only the future mentions, on top of that, BrandMentions is focused on past data as well. Many users need access to their historical data, on the web and all social platforms. And BrandMentions does exactly that: extracts years of historical data to help marketers better understand the past to build their brands better in the future.

3.-All important social platforms are monitored, not just Twitter & Instagram

Monitoring all social media channels implies more costs and more complexity and that's why not all tools are offering it. Yet, we choose to make this investment for users from all over the world to be able to accurately monitor their hashtags. Unlike other tools, BrandMentions offers a solution that helps brands perform social listening by the book on ALL social media platforms.

4.-BrandMentions gives you the full list of people that can impact your business

A reason why users choose BrandMentions over Hashtagify or other social listening tools we hear quite a lot is this one: I can finally start thinking about influencer marketing, or I can see all my brands ambassadors, from all my social networks, not just Instagram. Because with BrandMentions you can find the social media influencers to boost your social reach.

BrandMentions vs. Hashtagify at a Glance




BrandMentions extracts way more data, not just from Twitter and Instagram but also from Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Reddit and many other channels. Using multiple data providers, the tool can guarantee that almost no mention is missed, regardless of the social media channel is coming from.


BrandMentions is the only tool offering this big amount of historical data. Hashtagify offers just a few weeks of historical data. We extract years worth of mentions data, on both social platforms and the web. While Hashtagify is focused on future mentions only, BrandMentions focuses on both future and past mentions.


Collecting all the mentions is a complex and expensive job!BrandMentions crawls the web and uses multiple data providers and APIs to aggregate mentions. By doing this BrandMentions is able to provide a way bigger and comprehensive dataset of mentions. This is for both historical and future mentions


Sentiment analysis is done by monitoring all the mentions for a specific hashtag or brand. We look through comments, social media posts, keep an eye on the people that like and dislike your product, and provide all the necessary information to assess the overall brand or campaign sentiment.


Hashtagify offers suggestions to find hashtags based on your content. Within BrandMentions this feature is not yet available. However, you can see the full list and insight for relevant related hashtags.


Hashtag usage has significantly grown on social media over the last few years. While both tools offer solid hashtag monitoring, we want to highlight that BrandMentions offers these features on all important social platforms for both historical and future mentions.


Both apps offer valuable hashtag insights. Yet, BrandMentions is a way more complex tool that gives more hashtag data so you can make the most out of your marketing campaigns.


Both tools offer the possibility to white-label your reports. Yet, what BrandMentions has extra is that the reports can be translated in any language and the customization level is higher.

We know what you’re probably thinking: “you’re talking too much about your own product. You should put your money where your mouth is”. And you couldn’t be more right. 

So, here’s what we did: we asked our customers to tell us why they chose BrandMentions over other similar tools. Here’s what we got:

BrandMentions picks up every mention of your hashtag or brand

on web & social media and pulls it all into one place

We hear this quite a lot from many of our customers: finally I don’t have to worry about missing important conversations about my brand.

In today’s world, keeping up with all the social networks, comments, news and blog articles is almost mission impossible. So having all these data centralized in one place saves you tons of time and headaches.

Compared to Hashtagify, BrandMentions reports more mentions, from more sources, faster. 

The BrandMentions app picks up a more comprehensive list of web mentions than I have in other similar tools. The quick search module is also very helpful because unlike other tools I've tried you can quickly search any term without attaching it to a project.
