Do you currently use Google
to drive new business for your website? Then you need WordStream. The best scenario where it has helped me is time. I used to spend easily 20 hours a week analyzing data, making minor changes, adjusting budgets, trying to just master Google
! But now I'm able to spend maybe 2-3 hours a week on Google
and put the rest of my attention on other responsibilities. WordStream has mastered making my time more efficient.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Definitely go with a consultant. It amazed me how quickly our consultant was able to understand our business and what we sell. He was the best resource for our newly-digitized marketing team. The negative keywords section was a hugely helpful tool. It saved us from so much unnecessary spend while making it easy to add negatives. How quickly changes implemented were updated on AdWords was amazing. It's live, so no lag and unnecessary spend. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review While the basic tools are pretty simple to use, the platform is actually pretty expansive and I don't feel like I've taken advantage of it (yet) as much as I could. It does require some training to get up to speed. Support for Display ad campaigns is limited - this is mainly used as a way to optimize Search campaigns. Reporting. I find the reporting setup to be a bit confusing and still rely on other sources for building out reports on our Adwords performance (Adwords itself and Google Analytics).

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.

I have not had any experience with the customer support team for platform issues, but the account representative checks in with us often and is always available to answer questions. We will usually get on quarterly review calls so that she can share any new updates to the platform and answer questions.

We have started using
since we began using Acquisio and are extremely happy with
. 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
, unless you specifically need reports with more sources of data, Acquisio is all you really need.

WordStream is a little different from the competition. There are much more expensive solutions that manage the account for you with more features (Kenshoo, Marin, etc) and there are cheaper solutions out there that offer some of the features that WordStream provides; however, if a marketer wants to personally manage an account with some aided help than WordStream provides a great, cost-effective solution
Read full review 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. Read full review I've already noted the time savings that WordStream has provided - at leats 5 hours a week (and I like to think that my time is pretty expensive/worth it). Wordstream has paid for itself already, simply in removing junk from our AdWords account - junk keywords, junk AdWords groups, junk matching. I think we'll find, over more time, that Wordstream will continue to provide outstanding value in dropping our CPA - once Google register sthe lack of junk, our CPC will continue to go down.
