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.

Terminus

I think Terminus is best suited for companies that have a well defined understanding of their prospect and customer base. It's imperative that before you invest in a solution like this and the money that goes along with putting ads out there that you don't waste time and money on companies that aren't a fit

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 integration with Salesforce allows us to use data in Salesforce to set our campaign/tactic account audiences in Terminus.
  • Dedicated CSM supports the on-boarding process and is available for regular check ins to offer advice and tips to optimize ad tactic performance.
  • Their support team has been responsive and attentive to our all our questions.
  • Terminus is taking the ABM solution vendors by storm. We've been running ad display campaigns/tactics for 7 months and they just announced a huge product update: a comprehensive ABM platform that should give us new ways to target accounts and measure account engagement. Looking forward to the new features and insights!

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.

  • Reporting capabilities is minimal at this time. Looking forward to the new ways we can report and measure with the features in their new platform.
  • Limited to 500 accounts in each tactic makes it challenging to segment audiences when your criteria exceeds 500 accounts. We have to get creative with existing fields in SFDC and have had to add new fields in SFDC to get to the right counts.
  • Would like to see bulk editor capabilities for reviewing and editing ad landing page URLs.

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.

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

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.

Terminus is a lot easier to use than other tools we have used or evaluated for our ABM campaigns. Updating what we want to see and working with their team has been a great experience. They listen and seem to understand our specific industry better. They aren't looking to constantly upsell us and rather focus on making sure we are getting what we want out of what we have right now.

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

  • Target accounts that can't reach or engage via other marketing channels
  • It's been a tactic to support our ABM strategy.
