[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+)

StackAdapt is well-suited in situations where you need to drive awareness to a niche audience that cannot be easily targeted on the GDN. For our agency it is useful for our Canadian clients only, as HST is added to the advertising costs. We cannot pass this on to our international clients and therefore do not use the platform for any clients outside of Canada.

Creativity: Not only are the reps communicative, they actually bring new, fresh ideas to the table. As busy as we are, I can't thank them enough for that. Easy-to-use: As detailed as the dashboard is, it's actually pretty easy to use and bring new users up-to-speed on. 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. Read full review There is no way to QA your own ads. They QA for you and based on the level of their customer support, you can trust their QA, but the lack of self-assessment can cause problems for your company/agency. To know where your ads were actually deployed, when, and for how long would be amazing. They certainly know because they can track all sorts of analytics. Budgeting.

The platform is easy to use and understand whether it is being used as self-serve or a managed service. The audience targeting is solid, and array of placements is versatile. With these, the level of engagement for video content is usually great

Simple, streamlined interface. I would rate it higher if there was a proper agency portal (like an MCC "My Client Center") that allows you to control multiple client accounts from a unified login.

Support has been exceptional. Our dedicated team is always available and ready to answer any questions that may arise. We receive updates from them on a regular basis and they go above and beyond providing assistance when needed. The team is absolutely one of the bright spots in our relationship with StackAdapt

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.

In terms of Native advertising, StackAdapt blows
out of the water. The ability to drive impressions is similar between all three, but we have seen a large improvement in the quality of these impressions from StackAdapt. Clicks, engagement, and sales are all up on StackAdapt when compared to the other platforms we have used in the past.

Engagement and lead gen saw a big increase while using AdEspresso Read full review Excellent traffic from our ads. Traffic exceeded our forecast. Excellent management of our budget. We did not spend near as much as we budgeted for the response we received through our test. The lead conversion was not expected to be high due to the type of content we deployed, but we received zero conversions, well below anticipated when compared to other ads for the same content.
