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.

Epom Ad Server

I started using Epom for its multi-platform capabilities, as I needed a network which would allow managing desktop and mobile ad inventory simultaneously. Epom works with desktop, mobile web, video, and mobile app ads, all within one account. It is really convenient when it comes to analytics - Epom delivers combined data, providing the whole picture on your ad campaigns. Advanced targeting and real-time statistics are another great advantage

Cons

  • Initial code implementation can be difficult, depending on the size and style of the website you are trying to implement it on. Use of the new Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager can make this project significantly easier.
  • We experienced difficulty initially when we were hard coding the javascript onto the site while others were making website changes and this sometimes resulted in data inaccuracies.
  • The process from inception to actually getting your website actually up and running with the optimizer engine can be lengthy, especially when doing several sites concurrently. For smaller applications I can see this taking a much shorter time frame, but can be quite time consuming for multiple websites.

  • Antiquated user interface. It definitely could be more user-friendly.
  • Epom Ad Server support does not have a ticket system. Support must be contacted directly.

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 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

We have only gone with the Adobe Media Optimizer, as it seemed the most appropriate tool for what we wanted to use it for and offered an optimization tool as well as a reporting platform that others didn't. We took into account the abilities of Marin software and Navis, but none could offer the benefits that AMO could

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.

  • Besides its multiplatform capabilities, Epom is a highly reliable platform that offers a great level of protection against a system crash.
