AdStage

AdStage is great if you're an agency or an in-house marketer managing a lot of ad budget, a lot of campaigns, or a large number of clients and you want to get the day-to-day tasks cleared to focus on higher-brain-stem tasks. Bid and budget management are replaced by rules. Holiday sales are replaced with flighting. All of your team members can log in, access their accounts, set up their reports and have them send to clients without having to lift a finger.

Celtra

Celtra is best suited for rich media, expandable, clickable ad creation. It is valuable in terms of granular reporting as well. However, it is not suitable as a DSP i.e. we really can't make any optimizations through Celtra. It is best used for tracking ads, engagement, and performance metrics especially on mobile devices.

Pros

AdStage

  • Easily pulling together API access for multiple channels into one area for in-depth reporting
  • Automation. They helped a bunch with features that LinkedIn didn't have.
  • The team. They were always super responsive and on the ball with any questions or concerns we had. The customer service was great.
  • General reporting and tieing data together.

Celtra

  • Celtra's creative preview tool works well and is a necessity
  • The UI itself is easy to navigate and does not lag in terms of load time
  • The search functionality works well as it should

Cons

AdStage

  • I have very little negative feedback regarding this platform. At one point in time, you could create and publish ads to the various platforms via Adstage, but they have started to move away from that functionality. You now have to create campaigns on the platform (for example, LinkedIn) and then automate functions of those campaigns on AdStage. I'd love it to be a one-stop shop where I didn't have to deal with the ad platform at all.

Celtra

  • It is a very click-happy environment, which means there is room for human error
  • The color scheme can make it easy to loose your place
  • There is no bulk editing option so task completion can be lengthy

AdStage has been great and the only reason we wouldn't renew is if we decided to build this all out internally for API access. But, customer services is great, the product is great and I'd definitely recommend it.

AdStage had great support. They got back to me quickly every time, they always had or found an answer for what I was looking for, they took my feedback well, and they were knowledgeable with the platform and any issues I had. I have worked with a lot of other companies that are slow and AdStage definitely isn't one of them.

Alternatives Considered

AdStage

We've used tools like Companion Labs and AdEspresso before for Facebook Ads, or Optmyzer or WordStream for Google Ads, and AdStage has so many features that these systems don't. True, it's drastically more expensive than most, but the feature set is leaps and bounds above. From automation to reporting to even campaign monitoring being in a single platform with this level of customization, it's playing at a different level than anything else we've used off-the-shelf.

Celtra

I've really exclusively used this platform for rich media creation. There are other platforms out there for native advertisements such as TripleLift, which I've used in the past, that stacks up pretty well to Celtra. Truthfully we don't use any other ad creation platforms except for Celtra. We have had the option to work with Teads, but ended up not.

Return on Investment

AdStage

  • We haven't been using it long enough to have a positive ROI, but I'm confident we will as we optimize our campaigns based on the data we receive from AdStage.
  • AdStage saves myself and my team hours of time each week that we would normally spend preparing reporting or doing ad analysis in excel. This was the reason we purchased AdStage, and it's really living up to its promise.

Celtra

  • Positive - we have a preferred CPM rate while using Celtra so we are able to save costs there.
  • Positive - no need for outsourcing to other creative agencies so we save more costs
  • Positive - achieving KPIs for our clients ensures more revenue down the road as we establish ourselves as a trustworthy vendor
