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.

This is very helpful in enterprise settings to develop actionable insight of marketing efforts against key targets. I think the bigger the potential customers are, the more value Terminus would have. In our model, we target relatively few very large companies and it is very useful. I don't know how Terminus would perform against a larger, shallower target market, but I bet it is still effective.

Pros

Adobe Media Optimizer

  • 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.

Cons

Adobe Media Optimizer

  • 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.

Terminus

  • 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).

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.

Terminus

Terminus's professional services and support, along with its command-center approach, deliver a huge value to a ultra-lean fast moving business like Phononic. As a semiconductor startup that is rapidly growing, we need partners that can not only keep up with us, but also push us to continuously improve. Terminus enables us to quickly develop and execute new strategies as we rapidly expand into new verticals and segments. Alternatively, I have not found other solutions to have the same level of one-stop-shop, and I have not found other companies to be as engaged in customer success as a part of the package (vs paid support).
