Adobe Advertising Cloud

I think it is good to keep in mind the type of business application you have in mind when selecting Media Optimizer for your company. For us, as an agency, it makes sense for us to utilize the reporting and paid search optimizing portions for our clients as we manage over 300+ clients PPC campaigns. With this tool it is possible to set up campaigns easily and as long as the parameters are set correctly within the portfolio, there is a great opportunity for the tool to do its job and use the simulation/modeling process to run and grow a paid search campaign with ease of human interaction.

Terminus ABM Platform

If you're looking for a display advertising option, then Terminus is one of the major players - for better or worse. They source intent data from a third party (Bombora, I believe) so you have some targeting options available to you beyond company and position within. Advertising costs are in addition to the base contract price for their service so that's something to keep in mind if you're trying to work within a smaller budget. Since this is display advertising, the billing method is CPM (cost per thousand impressions). Their ad network does include the option to do Sponsored Posts with LinkedIn (although you can do that on your own honestly).

Pros

Adobe Advertising Cloud

  • An all in one solution for so many things that range from advertising campaigns to pushing out content to PPC.
  • Integration for many channels without much setup, this includes lesser known search engines and various social media partners.
  • Automation for delegating many tasks that can be a hassle to accomplish.

Terminus ABM Platform

  • 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

Adobe Advertising Cloud

  • As with most Adobe products, it can be a little tedious to use and requires a bit of extra training and "googling" around to make sure you are getting things right. It has improved over time within the entire Adobe suite, and I anticipate that this will be true of this as well.
  • Adobe training and learning platforms can include a lot of technical terminology and jargon that makes it difficult for a novice to understand without feeling like they need a whole new education.

Terminus ABM Platform

  • Terminus has useful insight but it doesn't translate into actionable intelligence for all users.
  • Terminus could improve through proactive suggestions delivered at the point of consumption, which for most sellers is the CRM. Standalone data in a field is only useful if the user thinks to look for it.
  • Terminus might deliver some of the features above in their UI, but most users don't want to go a separate UI. It should all be in CRMs (for sellers and SDRs).

As of this writing, we have just discontinued our use of Adobe Media Optimizer. Other vendors gave us a better rate, a better contract option, and the product is just better than what we had with Adobe at the time. We may revisit Adobe again at the future, but it seems like they have a lot of work to do to catch up with the leader in the space

Brightfunnel is a very useful tool but can only be used to the fullest if your data is there. It is hard for organizations with bad data to fully utilize its abilities.

It definitely takes some instruction to get to be able to use the system. One would struggle trying to get it to work without any previous experience with it. If you are famailiar with the interface it is actually quite fast and easy to maneuver around.

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.

It was difficult initially, but the implementation of the Dynamic Tag Manager was a big help and timesaver.

Alternatives Considered

An issue I touched on is how out of control budgeting is with Adobe Media Optimizer, recommending a budget of 30% just in one keyword is when I realized that something was amiss with how Adobe Media Optimizer tracks budgets and keywords. This issue not the case with Google Marketing Platform where the ads are rarely recommended to be high budgets. Of course Adobe Media Optimizer is much more suited to business that are in various platforms and while Google Marketing does support quite a few engines there are a few essentials that Adobe Media Optimizer still has.

Sendoso and Terminus are alike in that they both work to add "personalization" into Marketing. However, they are not competitors per-say. Sendoso personalizes the physical interactions (direct mail) while Terminus works on the digital landscape. I would say Terminus more competes with SEO or SEM, in which a user of Terminus is experiencing much less wasted dollars than that of SEM or SEO

Return on Investment

Adobe Advertising Cloud

  • This has increased the number of clients.
  • This has increased the amount of productivity and time we can spend on clients.
  • This has increased the overall revenue because we can handle more than we used to be able to handle without this tool.

Terminus ABM Platform

  • Targeted advertising - knowing our ads were being seen by key accounts vs. the broader web
  • Web traffic - large increase in web traffic based on Terminus spend, which again felt great because we knew it was from key accounts
  • Message refinement - thinking about different groups/buckets helped inform our messaging strategy
