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.

LinkedIn Lead Accelerator

In my opinion, LinkedIn Lead Accelerator is very well suited for B2B companies that want to target their B2B clients. If the company is B2C oriented, it would be pretty expensive for them to find and acquire sufficient amount of clients, it is better to use other platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter.

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.

Cons

AdStage

  • 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.

  • More ad variations (e.g. HTML5 vs. SWF)

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

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.

LinkedIn Lead Accelerator

As I described above, LinkedIn Lead Accelerator does a much better job on professional targeting. Neither Twitter Ads nor AdWords offers such a good segmentation when it comes to particular industry, company type, job position or level of job experience. We are still using Twitter Ads and AdWords to run campaigns there, but LinkedIn Lead Accelerator works much better to target professionals.
