ADTECH

AdTech is best for when you're examining data based on clicks or "likes" – if you're looking to get an idea of what your audience is looking for, you can examine a trend among certain users to determine what drives users and where. This is super helpful for social media managers and web developers. It helps them determine where to drive their UI/UX design

Sizmek

I've use Sizmek as media analytics and reporting tool. Unless a site doesn't work properly with Google DoubleClick, I rarely recommend Sizmek over DoubleClick. It can do everything DoubleClick does, but with almost twice the hassle. One Area that makes it easier to track is that ads are given individual tracking ID's that creative can look up and search by when indexing and testing to make sure all ads are working and input.

Pros

  • Adtech follows an algorithm that learns as you use it. It helps process data based on you (or your user) to help determine the best experiences for your client. Pretty neat.
  • Adtech helps streamline work by consolidating workflow. Everybody can be on the same page because everything is accessible to anybody in the organization (security pending, obviously). It helps because the data is available if you need it – and you don't have to fetch anything for anybody.
  • Adtech is best for larger organizations – and the developers who help create the technology understand that. Working with an interface like Adtech is simple, and easy to use. I can't remember what I did before it!

  • Uploading multiple ads in bulk
  • It's pretty easy to use from an ad serving standpoint, with functionality being intuitive, a lot of great reporting features.
  • The creative showcase is a good place for learning and finding resources for when it comes to HTML5 builds

Cons

  • The algorithm is a little...well, dumb, at first. And at times it can stay dumb. We've had users complain of clicking on a click-bait headline for an article, and getting ads that represent something else entirely (off to the side, of course). This doesn't make our clients happy.
  • AdTech can be prone to crash at times – randomly – it's a little unpredictable, you may want to make sure that your database can handle a streamlined workload. Doesn't work well with older tech.
  • Customer service at AdTech is okay, but there's always room for improvement. The support is good, but I don't like being put on hold.

Alternatives Considered

Maybe Google Analytics? But even that doesn't offer the same amount of services as AdTech – and I think that's because this is what AdTech does, and Google is spread a little thin. I use several different platforms, but I did have a lot of fun working with Adtech. Bottom line is, if you're a social media manager and you're tired of using other programs, give AdTech a shot

For me the main point here is the support, all the adservers offer more or less the same functionality and capabilities. The real advantage you will gain using Sizmek will be their customer support team and their open approach with other vendors.

Return on Investment

  • AdTech helps us determine where to steer our audience, and where to project our next campaign.
  • AdTech helps us view data based on user likes, clicks, and analyze trends among our audience.
  • What I don't like about AdTech is that it can sometimes put some people out of a job, as it streamlines work to the point that some on payroll may be...well, unnecessary.

  • Being versed in all the ad platforms allows our creative agency to be open to all opportunities a client or publisher might need creative for.
  • Tag auditing client's websites is made much easier with the testing mode pop-up function for conversion tags
