Google Ad Manager

It is only suited for marketing. Make sure you have analytics on your site to track the people coming, final sales, and conversions because it is at it's best when you can use it to really read and understand the data at hand. Google Ads does everything it needs to in ads, and you don't need to be an expert to begin with it. However, I would not just tell someone to "go create an account" if they know very little about digital ads. Consult with someone first. It can be a little daunting if you were to do that!

  • I think sometimes it needs a wizard or a template for certain actions to make it quicker to do.

I think it's useful for our team and we rely on it to improve our business. It is within our budget also. Although we still will need an approval from the upper-level management team, I don't see any problem with that

They always respond in 24 hours and can get the answers most of the time. For questions which cannot be answered initially, I don't need to escalate. The rep will ask their 'colleague' if needed..

Alternatives Considered

AdGear Advertiser

AdGear was the easiest tech to start on and it was my manager's choice. He enjoyed it though would get frustrated by the UI. I found it easy to use and set up; through lacking meaningful more insights into leads and lead generation to acquire important information when converting to users on the platform.

These are great programs, but when you stack up against Google, they cover a marginal amount of space. You want to use a program that covers a wide area, and currently, the ones listed don't quite have the same reach as the others. I would recommend them to people with high budgets, as you can post across many platforms, but only if you have the funds in the budget and someone who can dedicate time to all of these.

  • We have increased our conversions by 600%, and we weren't starting from a small number.
  • It has helped us grow in the digital space, which is vital in this climate.
  • Because of the ability to edit ads as we do, we are able to customize and carefully plan ads. We have over 1,500, uniquely specified towards certain situations. We can make sure that we start the relationship off right!
