AdStage

AdStage is great for bringing together all of your channels into one place for analytics. They now have easy API access into multiple channels which allows you to really deep dive and get the most out of the data that you often can't without that API access. They also have great ways to surface this data that is easy to digest for leadership.If you already have this internally or want to build it out internally, AdStage may not be a fit outside of some great automation tools, but it's not easy to have this data done and built out internally so this is a great place to start.

Flite

It is definitely well suited for publishers looking to meet high profile client needs in terms of high impact ads and reporting metrics. For standard basic ads it wouldn't make sense to have Flite on board because you won't be using them to their full capability or maximizing your investment in their tool.

Pros

  • 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.

  • The platform is very easy to use.
  • Flite is ahead of its time if not keeping up with the time in terms of fulfilling the advertisers desires with their ad creation abilities.
  • The metrics and reporting they provide are key when giving details back to the client about the health and success of their campaign.

Cons

  • We were with them in the earlier days and when they were growing larger. We experienced some of that pain with pricing changes that didn't feel quite right. But, they've fixed this now.
  • We didn't really see the usefulness at times of optimizing some of the channels through AdStage, but we loved the reporting features they had for the channels.
  • Better tiers for payment and what fits into those. Again, these are being addressed much better now.

  • Tutorial videos would be helpful to support articles.

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.

The things I love most are the self serve tool, how we or the Flite team can create templates for us to plug and play and most of all Flite has a team that can help build out the most complicated, intricate ad units that our clients dream up!

Support

Based on 1 answer
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

I'm actually not aware of a ton of direct competitors for what AdStage is doing right now. As mentioned before, they have some great integrations for deep analytics, they bring all of the different vendors together in one central place and they have some awesome automation tools that I have not seen around.

Return on Investment

  • It's saved time for me to easily build out campaigns in Facebook and LinkedIn quickly and in scale
  • It gives people the option to get direct API access to multiple channels without having to build it all in-house
  • It allowed some great optimizations for LinkedIn which allowed us to use our spend there better

  • From an ad operations standpoint, traffickers were able to test and edit high impact units with ease.
  • We are able to update ad units quickly and efficiently.
