Vendasta vs. BirdEye

The Online Presence Showdown

Vendasta vs BirdEye banner

With a vast platform full of robust features, Vendasta’s presence, online reviews and reputation management solutions stand out above the rest. Specifically, our focus on online listings and reviews—monitoring them, getting them and responding to them—has helped our partners generate while bringing value to their local business clients.

What makes Vendasta different?

Partners and prospects often ask us how we stack up to the competition. Occasionally, they’ll inquire about BirdEye’s reviews-reputation products and platform, and how it’s different from what we offer. Based on our research and intel from partners who have used both platforms, we’ve compiled this list of differences.

Vendasta’s customer service, marketing platform, and most importantly, their team is amazing. We would highly recommend working with them, as we’ve seen significant growth since using their online tools. Great company with great service!

Presence and Listings

Vendasta allows businesses to syndicate their listings to essential directories and search engines. With tools like Vendasta’s Listing Sync you can instantly update information on Facebook, Twitter and Google Business Profile. The added benefit is that all of these changes are able to be done from one central dashboard.

With 97% of consumers searching for business information online1, local businesses not only need to be visible in search results, they also need to make sure that their listings contain correct information. When listings are wrong, businesses lose the trust of 73% of these consumers2— and when trust is lost, potential customers are going to take their money elsewhere. In other words, listings management is a must in the business world.

At Vendasta, we take listings management seriously. We not only identify which top directories a business’s listings aren’t present or accurate, we ensure they’re correct through daily monitoring and automatic updates.

Online Reviews

This is the area where Vendasta and BirdEye compete neck and neck. Setting aside the basics, you’ll find that Vendasta offers an out-of-the-box white-labeled solution. Another added offering that Vendasta provides is our Marketing Services digital agency, which can be contracted to work as a review management service.

Through Vendasta’s Listing Builder features above we offer a gated review form that allows you to mitigate negative reviews before they show up on your social feed. We also have an array of review conversion tools to ensure that customers who leave positive reviews are encouraged to share them across multiple review sites.

According to our research, BirdEye has a two-tier yearly subscription model, versus Vendasta’s five-tier scalable monthly subscription model. Vendasta lets you offer reputation management with no subscription cost, as well as access to a wholesale marketplace of other white label tools.


We’ve been a reputation management company since 2008, so we bring a lot of experience as a proven platform, but over time we’ve grown to so much more than just reputation management. The summary here speaks for itself.
