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

It's a great tool for businesses with scale, the actionable insights provided is the true value of the tool. Smaller businesses may find the analytics and suggestions found within Google Ads (complemented by Google Analytics) to be sufficient for their needs.

Pros

  • Great UI
  • Accurate reporting
  • Strong data points
Stefanie Cash profile photo
  • The UI is very easy to understand. They have made some changes lately for good, I think
  • The integration for 1st party data from other platforms is very transparent, allowing you to identify audiences via the internal code from the data platform itself
  • The integration with Data Studio is something we love. This is pretty useful when presenting info to high level teams

Cons

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

  • It would be great if the tool enabled advertisers the ability to review and report brand/trademark infringement.
  • Needs a custom ap (not the Google Ads app)

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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

Alternatives Considered

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

The UI is better against all other options in the market. Even the opportunity that you have to integrate new inventory from your own is easier when doing it by yourself; we always had to go back to the support teams on all other products in order to do so. Also, the robust service that Google has makes it easier to leverage all features of the suite.

  • Negative: the pricing is higher than average
  • Positive: standardizing the properties that we manage is a good thing
