AdHawk

Despite its shortcomings, AdHawk is a neat, useful tool that provides tactical information for developing solid Facebook ad campaigns. AdHawk is great for managing smaller Facebook Ad budgets. You're able to select a truly actionable guideline in an easy to view format for decision-making. You can really optimize an ad to perform best using the data AdHawk generates

Cheetah Messaging

I think CheetahMail, being one of the main ESPs in the market, is a quality choice. However, I would suggest that it's really only valuable for a bit larger of an organization, generally having staff of 100+ and revenues in tens of millions -- this is mainly to justify the amount of investment required, so may be cost-prohibitive to some. You also need to make sure that you understand the entire "level of support" you will gain through your specific contract.... the key is understanding what types of resources are within your organization (who's doing the coding? who comes up with the next campaign? What's the overall strategy?) Depending on these questions and resources, may help determine your final needs from a services point of view. CheetahMail can provide a wealth of various services specific to needs (and changes over time as your business changes), but a clear understanding of what you have before you bring them on will really help getting up and running quickly. Also be sure to truly understand the costs for the initial integrations, setups, IP senders, etc.

Pros

  • Great UI
  • Accurate reporting
  • Strong data points
Stefanie Cash | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cheetah Messaging

  • Internal management - This is a great web-based tool that allows our users to see what emails go to whom.
  • Organization - Many layers of organization for templates since there are many types of remarketing emails that we send out.
  • Historical Records - CheetahMail sends us the raw text files of all email actions so we can upload them to our database.

Cons

AdHawk

  • Ability to look at two campaigns at once (comparative stats)
  • Only available for Facebook or G+
  • No export feature for reporting

Cheetah Messaging

  • The organization of CheetahMail could at times be better, as you create more and more mailings, they just pile up in a long list. It would be useful to be able to create folders to store specific mailings in. (ex. editorial, newsletters, marketing, etc.)

As I have begun exploring competitors, I've come to realize that every competitor offers so much more functionality and integration than CheetahMail does. When we first signed our contract, CheetahMail was much more innovative and at the forefront of email. Since being bought out by Experian, we've seen a huge decline in service and innovation. They have laid off much of their staff and moved their account representatives to Costa Rica. They also heavily rely on on third parties which you will have to pay large amounts of money for while other Email Service Providers have integrated new technologies into their platform. You will get more for your money going to a different email service such as Responsys, Silverpop, Listrak and the like,

AdHawk is extremely easy to use. Not many buttons to click to get to any area of importance. It's also very clean and sophisticated in design which makes for a pleasant experience. The optimization features even explain to you the value of going with the suggested strategy. Overall, AdHawk is a great software for managing Facebook and Google Ads

CheetahMail has a high learning curve to master and requires a lot of backend work with tech teams to set up. Navigation is not the best and everything that should be automated is still extremely manual.

Account reps have a quick response time but a very slow resolution time. Because account reps do not have technical knowledge, there is a long long lead time between flagging a problem and tech team resolution.

Alternatives Considered

AdHawk

AdHawk is far better than the other products regarding how simplified the reporting of ad results are. AdHawk is cleaner and easier to understand. Allows for easy comparing of conversion points within a campaign. Other products are simply not as easy to use. Also, optimization is not a feature available with many services

Cheetah Messaging

If we are comparing apples to apples for just sending emails, all the tools were about the same. Upload a list, code email, send email. For that they are all pretty much the same. The thing that brings Cheetahmail down is the support. The support is not bad but because they are in a different country it makes it tough to fix issues in a timely manner.

Return on Investment

AdHawk

  • Ad optimization data
  • Simplified ad management
  • Audience understanding
Stefanie Cash | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cheetah Messaging

  • Our efficiency has decreased with CheetaMail actually. Too many service calls to find out why something isn't working as expected, account setup questions, issues with PiP, takes too long to get a simple form built, customer service response time, etc...
  • Reporting is not very streamlined. This has caused us to take our reporting offline and use a method with better visibility.
