AdRoll

It is very well suited for easy targeting especially when it comes to visual ads in the remarketing and retargeting categories. As a small business, this option is also affordable for our use.

MatchCraft

If you have multiple campaigns running at the same time, you need your campaign setups to be quick and easy, or you have multiple users managing campaigns, then MatchCraft Advantage is right for you. It also performs well with both small and large budgets. If you want to do re-targeting but don't want/know how to implement the tag, MatchCraft has built-in features for that. However if you want to run video campaigns and campaigns in specific mobile apps, then for now MatchCraft will not work for you

Pros

  • Customizability of visual ads is easy and efficient. I can make it look the way I want it with the words I need to use.
  • I think the reach not being limited to just Google but rather accross multiple channels is an advantage for AdRoll.
  • Has a great support team that is always ready to help out. They were particularly helpful when we were first trying to set up our first ad campaign.

  • Automated bid adjustments for PPC campaigns. Manual bid strategies can be tedious to manage. MatchCraft's bidding system helps improve click throughs while keeping the click costs pretty low.
  • The report generation features of the platform MatchCraft platform are easy to use and provide actionable data from campaigns. PDF reports require only a few clicks and there is also an interactive dashboard that gives all the key metrics in a graphical format. Both features are customizable.
  • User management is a breeze in the MatchCraft platform. You can add, edit, activate, deactivate, and change the permissions as needed.

Cons

  • Would be better to have more control over where ads appear similar to AdWords
  • A decrease in CPM (cost per thousand impressions) would be crucially beneficial
  • The option to perform CPC campaigns ala AdWords

  • Not all Google/Bing features are available through the MatchCraft platform. Since they are limited to what is available in the API some features like video campaign management and specific app targeting are missing.
  • Customized report scheduling is not yet available for each campaign and the automated reports can only be sent to one email address. Additional recipients have to be sent their's manually.
  • Reports can take a little time to be generated. Not more than 1 minute but it can slow you down if you have multiple reports to send.

Account management is a big issue for us, its something we were looking for but we didn't get too many big ideas or big strategies to move the needle.

Usability

Honestly, AdRoll is like every other ad management system. In fact, all ad management systems are pretty much identical with a few proprietary tweaks. Creating a campaign is done in one seamless screen with everything you need right there. The ability to add creative and even order AdRoll to create ads for you is also easy. The monitoring of a live campaign is easy as you can see all the necessary information from the main screen. Super easy to use and reliable deliverability

Alternatives Considered

In some ways we've been looking at AdRoll as an alternative to running ads direct with Facebook. The biggest thing AdRoll has going for it is that their own network has reach beyond the Facebook ad network. It also provides a central place to run FB ads and display ads and see performance overall in one place. It's very good for what it is, but it still misses some features that you get when you run on FB directly.It seems to compare well to other DSP's/etc. though

The interface on MatchCraft is much easier to get started with than the native PPC provider interfaces. MatchCraft finds ways of maximizing ROI within current spend target rather than recommending 'increased budget' as the fix for all issues. the reporting dashboard is also easier to use and report generation takes only a few clicks. The main downside is that MatchCraft is limited to what the PPC providers allow through the APIs
