If you want to get into CTV, programmatic audio, or programmatic display but aren't confident enough to run the campaigns independently, StackAdapt could be a good solution. If you're more satisfied with your media-buying abilities, you could probably avoid the managed service option with StackAdapt and run the ads independently through their UI.

  • Communication: Their reps are incredibly transparent, thorough and detailed. I really, really appreciate that.
  • Creativity: Not only are the reps communicative, they actually bring new, fresh ideas to the table. As busy as we are, I can't thank them enough for that.
  • Easy-to-use: As detailed as the dashboard is, it's actually pretty easy to use and bring new users up-to-speed on.

Cons

  • Some live streaming restrictions.

StackAdapt
  • There is no way to QA your own ads. They QA for you and based on the level of their customer support, you can trust their QA, but the lack of self-assessment can cause problems for your company/agency.
  • To know where your ads were actually deployed, when, and for how long would be amazing. They certainly know because they can track all sorts of analytics.
  • Budgeting.

Simple, streamlined interface. I would rate it higher if there was a proper agency portal (like an MCC "My Client Center") that allows you to control multiple client accounts from a unified login.

StackAdapt is significantly less expensive than The Trade Desk. StackAdapt doesn't have campaign minimums, unlike The Trade Desk, meaning you can experiment with a lower ad spend to gain client confidence before investing at a larger level. Plus they don't lock you into an annual contract or anything long term. It feels very similar to The Trade Desk but without the high contract.

  • We were not able to get good ROI on the prospecting campaigns, but we got good returns for the retargeting campaigns. The problem with the prospecting campaigns was that we had a very huge audience segment to target.
  • StackAdapt has wonderful customer service. The support team is very responsive with detailed answers and in a timely manner. This helps us greatly in planning future campaigns.
  • Also, wanted to give a shout out to [...]. She is working with us on new campaigns even with the large segment we wish to target.
