Acquisio

Acquisio is ideal for marketing agencies, especially those that focus on serving a specific market. If your Agency has access to client data, depending on the data, Acquisio's software could be a powerful way to deliver that data in the form of online ads. Acquisio might be too powerful for a small business looking to manage campaigns in-house.

Twitter Ads

I highly recommend Twitter Ads for users looking to establish a strong online presence on the platform and the digital sphere.While a little on the expensive side, the payoff, in the long run, is quite remarkable especially that Twitter Ads will show your content to all the followers gained (while other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, use algorithms that might place your daily content lower or won't even show them to your fans)..

Pros

  • Pulling accurate data from the proper sources (Google, Bing, Facebook)
  • Their Bid & Budget Management Software has been a delight. Very, very advanced factoring multiple signals into play and updates every few minutes. With the dynamic changing budget, I can focus my concentration on other more useful tasks.
  • Solid reporting capabilities
  • Ability to tie in secondary conversion data from sources such as Google Analytics and Marchex for phone call completions

  • The user-interface is designed well and easy to use.
  • Targeting and retargeting in a very granular way.
  • Good reporting on campaigns.

Cons

  • The training during the transition from the "old" Acquisio to the "new" Acquisio left a lot to be desired.
  • Twitter, at least at the time, was not an approved advertiser, so we had to create manual reports for our Twitter advertising campaigns.
  • Some of the algorithms Acquisio offers are a little confusing to understand.

  • Limitation of characters to only 140.
  • While the targeting of Twitter is relevant most of the time, it is not always right and there are some ads that are completely unrelated to the search terms entered.
  • Not as many users as Facebook.

Great customer service and a terrific product. Their ability to manage social user interfaces directly isn't very strong.

The tool is ok to use, and ads are becoming more skippable on Twitter, so we are unsure as a company if it's still a good channel for direct response messaging. It does not perform as efficiently as other social platforms for lower funnel marketing. It does well for awareness campaigns that are set and forget, but optimizing for DR is not as efficient when you are trying to manage the ads on the client side.

Within the interface there is an instant chat support feature that you can use to get help right away without having to pick up the phone or look for an email address. We have have an account manager who responds to emails quickly and is always helpful. Anytime issues require further tech support we are kept up to date on the progress of the issue and they are usually resolved the same day.

Alternatives Considered

Not quite as seamless as Marin whose editing tool seemed better but also not as expensive and fit better into our agency's budget.

Twitter attracts more potential customers than Facebook. There are more fake users in Facebook than Twitter which also contributes Twitter conversion rate more than Facebook but gets more clicks on Facebook than Twitter. Targeting of users is okay on Twitter, for the first time you have to test but as soon as you will use more you will know how to target whereas it is difficult on Facebook.

Return on Investment

  • Acquisio let us create reports on the fly, saving us lots of time; time that was better spend optimizing client campaigns.
  • Acqusio's Bid and Budget Management tool (BBM) helped a struggling client achieve desired traffic and conversion results with little to no work from our agency.
  • Acquisio's quick customer service responsiveness let us get our questions answered quickly.

  • We have had success with a handful of campaigns...mostly those geared to affinity groups. I am hoping new features i.e. Promote Mode, App and Video Campaign options will give us more opportunities to engage with our patients.
