Customer demographics that are not typical of ours are being served by our marketing efforts. We've seen fast expansion as a result of the exposure Yahoo has given us. Because of the low cost per click, users can see results right away. The more traffic there is, the better.

Pros
Newfold Digital
  • Acquisio does so many things to deserve praise. But where they excel above all others is in customer service. Everyone, and I mean everyone, from Client Service representative to the developers to the CEO, demonstrates that they value the relationship with their customers above all else. And that feels awesome.
  • Acquisio is focused on automation, scalability, and systematic performance improvement.
  • Acquisio's campaign cloner allows us to set up a campaign once and not only duplicate it from AdWords to Bing but sync the two, as well. This is a huge time saver and obviously also helps us to maintain consistency across the two publishers.

Yahoo (Verizon Media)
  • Predictive Modeling - always performs well for Conversion & CPA based campaigns; out-performed other DSPs with similar tools.
  • Email Receipt Retargeting - no other DSP offers the ability to do this, so it is 100% proprietary, as far as I know.

Cons
Newfold Digital
  • Some of the screens in the platform take a little while to load and you may need to refresh.
  • More details on mobile campaigns would be helpful but Acquisio is limited by what is available in the PPC provider's API.
  • Hopefully they will add support for more fonts soon.

I think the platform, with the latest release updates has a lot of great potential. The main decision, currently, is price and how that gets passed on to our clients. There has to be a conscious decision made on platform cost vs client spend and overall budget vs revenue.

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.

We have started using Domo since we began using Acquisio and are extremely happy with Domo. We will continue to use Acquisio though because of the ability to directly manage paid search ads and the ability to create simple reports quickly. Also considering the cost of Domo, unless you specifically need reports with more sources of data, Acquisio is all you really need.

Google Ad Manager is like an angel coming into your organization to save you when you've been battered, beaten, and bruised. The entire UI is a wonderful breath of fresh air. It just "works" where ONE doesn't. The costs, the learning curve, the data organization all outweigh EVERY SINGLE feature of ONE by AOL.

  • AdTech helps us determine where to steer our audience, and where to project our next campaign.
  • AdTech helps us view data based on user likes, clicks, and analyze trends among our audience.
  • What I don't like about AdTech is that it can sometimes put some people out of a job, as it streamlines work to the point that some on payroll may be...well, unnecessary.
