Adobe Advertising Cloud

I honestly would have given it a 10, if my colleagues were all as experienced as myself or my staff, but not everyone is. I would explain what is entailed and let them make their own decisions. However, Adobe Advertising Cloud is on the top of my list if they are quick to pick up things like this.

Terminus

I think Terminus is best suited for companies that have a well defined understanding of their prospect and customer base. It's imperative that before you invest in a solution like this and the money that goes along with putting ads out there that you don't waste time and money on companies that aren't a fit

Pros

  • Automation - One of Adobe Marketing Cloud’s amazing marketing solutions is Adobe Campaign. This allows users to implement marketing automation to increase their campaign productivity and deliver an amazing customer experience. I can even set up users so they can build individual customer profiles based on the interests, actions, and preferences that are tracked through different marketing channels.
  • A/B Split Testing – Most platforms have this now and most do not know how to even use it. However, the only way for a user to know how their marketing can be improved is to get a clear idea of how it is performing. But if all their data is in separate locations, it’s difficult to know which image, text or video is leading to sales or conversions. Adobe Marketing Cloud helps with keeping all of this clear for everyone on board.
  • Social Analytics – when you or your customers are looking to improve their social marketing results, this platform offers Adobe Social, which is a social management platform that allows users to monitor conversations, promote and publish content, and analyze and engage with followers. One of the best parts is that the system automatically attaches tracking codes to users’ social content to identify what content drives engagement. It is a very powerful tool.

  • Terminus does a good job of tracking the activity around the ads we put into the marketplace and it helps us learn what works and what doesn't for our audience.
  • The site visit functionality is great. From here I can search for a prospect by name and see what pages they are looking at and the last time they were on there.
  • Getting a spike report for prospects that are enrolled in ABM campaigns each week allows me to set up my week focusing on those prospects that raised their hand.

Cons

  • Hard to learn - It is not one of those plug and play programs. It is very confusing, even to seasoned program specialists like myself. There were a few times I literally felt like I was pulling my hair out trying to get things to run correctly.
  • Price - They claim it is set up for small to large companies, but when you check all the other programs out there, their pricing is steep. Adobe has always been that way-- they are really not for the beginners and don't care about the newbies.
  • Time Consuming - if you are a newbie, the learning that is involved just to get up and running can take a full week. The only cheat I can give a newbie is that there are tons of others on Youtube that feel the same way and now there are great tutorials out there that can help you over a learning curve.

  • Reporting capabilities is minimal at this time. Looking forward to the new ways we can report and measure with the features in their new platform.
  • Limited to 500 accounts in each tactic makes it challenging to segment audiences when your criteria exceeds 500 accounts. We have to get creative with existing fields in SFDC and have had to add new fields in SFDC to get to the right counts.
  • Would like to see bulk editor capabilities for reviewing and editing ad landing page URLs.

They are super knowledgable and help in almost all situations, however sometimes I feel they put you on hold to find the answers themselves as they literally have said. "Can you hold a few minutes while I research that answer for you?" Most of the time they come back with a solution, other times they manually escalate it to someone else.

Alternatives Considered

ClickFunnels is way too expensive, and even though they claim they do so much, it is way too difficult to get it to work, plus there are tons of external costs they don't mention until you're inside the system. Most are exactly like that as well. Hootsuite is a good alternative, but it is missing some stuff that Adobe does. HubSpot needs a lot of work. I would say it is too casual, but at the same time, it is too complicated too.

Terminus is a lot easier to use than other tools we have used or evaluated for our ABM campaigns. Updating what we want to see and working with their team has been a great experience. They listen and seem to understand our specific industry better. They aren't looking to constantly upsell us and rather focus on making sure we are getting what we want out of what we have right now.

Return on Investment

  • With all the reports that come along with it, the ROI for this is on the high end of everything out there. I feel I am being repetitive a bit here, but again, it is all on how much the user knows and how easily they can pick it up.
  • The ROI when it comes to the learning curve is still well worth it, if you can dedicate a week to the learning and get it over with, it is all that much better as in the long run it will be a program that will almost walk through things on its own.
  • The ROI when it comes to the learning curve for someone that is a newbie though may be a lot more challenging and may be one of those programs they are paying for but never ever end up using, like so many of us with our gym memberships.
