Hootsuite
[AdEspresso is] great if you have a smaller budget or are just getting started with Facebook advertising. You can easily create ads and publish them in minutes after everything is set up for your account. I would recommended trying it if you don't have a lot of experience, but not to manage a large account with multiple clients (10+)

Do not go with PubMatic -- every aspect of their company needs to improve and be tested on a higher scale for companies and organizations to be happy with their work. They need to listen to what clients are telling them to be able to improve their day to day functions.

Cons
Hootsuite
  • It is a bit limited in features, for example can't do everything that you can do in Facebook's Business Manager
  • There are certain levels, depending on budget, so you'll have to pay more to use it the higher your budget is
  • Could use an update for Lead Ad creation, found it very tough and couldn't get things to synch correctly.

  • Communication is key and PubMatic really needs to improve the way they speak to clients and their response time on emails and the time lapse between communication. Turn around time needs to improve. Simple requests like forecasting should not take weeks to turn around.
  • Understanding their product before making it available to a huge organization. Don't use companies as guinea pigs when the product isn't even working. Understand what your client expects from you from the very beginning.
  • Don't place blame where blame isn't warranted.
  • Knowing the terminology you're speaking about well before you have a conference call.

I find it a lot more detailed in creation and ad reporting, but not very user friendly or helpful if you encounter an error or something happens that needs to be fixed. AdEspresso [by Hootsuite] is better if you want an easier experience and less to look at while you're creating your ads.
