Adobe Media Optimizer

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.

Bing Ads

Bing Ads is definitely worth testing and scaling up if you find success with the platform. Traffic volume is lower than AdWords for nearly identical campaigns, bids, etc. Conversion to sale as a result of having less lead volume has often taken longer compared to AdWords. Organizations with smaller monthly budgets may find more success testing with less spend in Bing Ads vs AdWords.

Pros

  • The implementation process is very streamlined as far as single site implementation. Once installed and your desired tracking metrics are rolling in. It is easy for you to build your portfolios to be modeled to achieve these goals and do it in the most efficient way.
  • The reporting aspect of the program also is one of its greatest benefits. No longer do you have to base the success of a paid search campaign on blurry metrics like CTR and SERP rankings. Media optimizer gives you the ability to track complete conversions all the way back to the paid ad that resulted in conversion, as well as the keyword that was searched.
  • Before the actual optimization process begins, and the dollars start being spent, there is a period of learning for the tool that allows it to conduct hypothetical, but statistical based modeling that allows you to see what sort of optimization to expect before turning on the tool and spending actual budget.

  • Capability to sync with Excel spreadsheets a huge plus
  • Drive cost efficient traffic similar to AdWords at usually lower CPCS

Cons

  • High price. Although it is very functional and you can improve profit margins the product itself is expensive.
  • It is complicated to use. You need a lot of time and dedication to learn how to use it.

  • We have had lackluster support from our representatives in the past.
  • The lack of volume in the channel can make it difficult to get significantly significant results.
  • We have run into issues on bid management by device settings.

It has performed well above our expectations and has given us the time we'd be better off spending on building new strategies and customer development, over manual PPC campaign management. The ROI far exceeds what we could have promised on our own with many clients and we wouldn't want to give up that kind of almost guaranteed ROI for our clients.

It does drive traffic and conversions, even though the scale is small.

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.

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

Alternatives Considered

I think it's a good way to automate and take more control during the digital advertising process.You can have access to a lot of data, spreadsheets and statistics, but that is difficult to manage at the beginning.

Bing ads in the UK is the second engine advertisers would go for, if they're looking to expand reach. In the US I expect it to be a bigger deal. It also depends on what type of product is being advertised, for some, there is bigger volume than for others. Bing still falls behind AdWords, because they don't present anything new to us, but rather wait for Google to be the innovators.

Return on Investment

  • Increase in the margins of spending and profit.
  • Allows us to make decisions based on statistics and percentages given by the simulations and not in simple intuitions or advice from third parties.

  • The overall impact is positive on the ROI since it's driving a good amount of conversions at a good price.
  • The competition is not so harsh on Bing, as many competitors don't appear there, which leads to lower CPCs than Adwords
