[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+)

If you don't care where your campaigns are running, if you don't care about your clients then feel free to do business with them. I would not recommend them to other agencies or business if they have a lot of particular advertisers and clients that they work with. It is too much work for them. If you want to do a self-service model with Simpli.fi, then I could recommend working with them. As long as I don't have to deal with their customer service daily, and my company has the control of the campaigns, I can feel more comfortable working with them. But even still, there are a lot of red flags that have been raised over the last few years and I am skeptical.
Read full review Pros A/B testing Mass advertising Budget and finance Read full review Simpli.fi's Geo-Fencing capabilities are top notch! The ability to include an unlimited number of geo-fences within a campaign is invaluable, as is the ability to measure the effectiveness of a geo-fencing campaign in driving foot traffic to our clients' physical locations. Our organization appreciates the knowledge, experience and responsiveness of Simpli.fi's customer support staff. One of the things Simpli.fi does particularly well is the education of its users and re-sellers. From monthly webinars, to its Bullseye learning courses, they have a way to make the complex understandable to even the most green digital sellers! Read full review Cons 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.

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.

We have done a lot of research on many other vendors that offer the same or even more as Simpli.fi and have found a great fit for our business. There are many other options out there for programmatic buying! My advice to you is do your research. Don't just jump into bed with one without knowing all of the facts. Ask questions. Do some digging. And NEVER take anything they say at face value. They are there to sell you the product and if you move forward, you will for sure be disappointed
Read full review Return on Investment They have helped us greatly in lead generation for internal marketing efforts Big focus on lead generation for clients, have helped sell dozens of homes for them! Engagement and lead gen saw a big increase while using AdEspresso Read full review We have been able to leverage Simpli.fi's geo-fencing tools to pry business away from larger competitors. The lack of a customer-facing dashboard is a weakness. Simpli.fi's low barrier of entry has allowed us to scale at our pace without the threat of being cut off in the face of high minimum spends.
