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.

LinkedIn Lead Accelerator

In my opinion, LinkedIn Lead Accelerator is very well suited for B2B companies that want to target their B2B clients. If the company is B2C oriented, it would be pretty expensive for them to find and acquire sufficient amount of clients, it is better to use other platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter.

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.

  • Allows you to understand B2B users in a digital environment -- who they are, how the behave, how to target messaging them them.
  • Allows you to personalize the customer journey based on deep insights into users.
  • Both the data and the team combine to provide great insight into B2B marketing practices -- allowing you to transfer insight into action.

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.

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.

I am using them as a customer rather than a partner at my new company, Poppin. We are are marketing to B2B prospects and customers and see Bizo as a key partner.

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

As I described above, LinkedIn Lead Accelerator does a much better job on professional targeting. Neither Twitter Ads nor AdWords offers such a good segmentation when it comes to particular industry, company type, job position or level of job experience. We are still using Twitter Ads and AdWords to run campaigns there, but LinkedIn Lead Accelerator works much better to target professionals.

Return on Investment

  • We have seen 12:1 ROI in some clients within the first 3 weeks of being up and live on the service. This is where you can go in and adjust portfolio objectives and make changes accordingly.
  • It has freed up a lot of time that we had previously spent manually monitoring and managing individual paid search accounts. While a lot of that time is still spent with the accounts, it is spent in AMO, checking and adjusting portfolio goals and weighting objectives to achieve maximum benefit.
  • It is important to make sure to allow AMO to take time to learn, and make sure that it is receiving enough information to learn and make decisions properly. We've found that slower moving PPC account that don't receive tons of traffic often need to utilize secondary objectives in their portfolios to "feed" the system enough info to learn and act.
