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.

Simpli.fi, in my opinion, is the leader in programmatic branding campaigns for small to medium sized businesses. Large national brands with six figure brands can afford to look elsewhere, even though Simpli.fi is adept and conducting campaigns for big business as well. Simpli.fi does LOCAL very well.

  • Simpli.fi's Geo-Fencing capabilities are top notch! The ability to include an unlimited number of geo-fences within a campaign is invaluable, as is the ability to measure the effectiveness of a geo-fencing campaign in driving foot traffic to our clients' physical locations.
  • Our organization appreciates the knowledge, experience and responsiveness of Simpli.fi's customer support staff.
  • One of the things Simpli.fi does particularly well is the education of its users and re-sellers. From monthly webinars, to its Bullseye learning courses, they have a way to make the complex understandable to even the most green digital sellers!

Cons

Adobe Media Optimizer

  • 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.

  • Their customer service over the last couple of years has been severely lacking! It has been an absolute terrible experience which has made us re-evaluate our plans of moving forward with them.
  • They over-promise & under-deliver constantly. Even though they say they have the best geo-fencing capabilities in the market and that's how they sell you on it, they take short cuts which inevitably makes their "glamorous" product look bad. If you send them the form that they have requested you to fill out, it ends up putting a radius around each fence. That isn't acceptable, just because they are "short staffed" or its too much work is no excuse to screw over the client.
  • A lot of times when we are getting questions from our clients that are truly relevant and are a cause for concern & we take that information back to Simpli.fi we feel like we are getting their "BS" answer. They talk a lot of game, but can't back it up when it comes down to it.
  • The sites that their inventory runs on is extremely alarming - we could never show that to a client when it is such garbage.
  • When we request keyword lists for Search Retargeting - we give them as much information as possible for the client + their website to pull keywords from. We could be running a restaurant and we could get keywords back for stock prices, linkedin, how to make donuts etc. Thousands & thousands of keywords that are completely irrelevant to our client and our cause.

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

Adobe Media Optimizer

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.

Simpli.fi

We have done a lot of research on many other vendors that offer the same or even more as Simpli.fi and have found a great fit for our business. There are many other options out there for programmatic buying! My advice to you is do your research. Don't just jump into bed with one without knowing all of the facts. Ask questions. Do some digging. And NEVER take anything they say at face value. They are there to sell you the product and if you move forward, you will for sure be disappointed

Simpli.fi

  • We have been able to leverage Simpli.fi's geo-fencing tools to pry business away from larger competitors.
  • The lack of a customer-facing dashboard is a weakness.
  • Simpli.fi's low barrier of entry has allowed us to scale at our pace without the threat of being cut off in the face of high minimum spends.
