AppNexus

Yieldex is well suited when you want to analyze yield. Gone are the days when people asked me for new reports and I turned them away. I can always create a new report quickly. However, it does not generate nice looking charts for you. You still need to download the report and create charts yourself.

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

  • As per my experience they have strong support personnel. Solving the issues as and when required.
  • We can solve certain issues like campaign performance, inventory optimization and more with the help of AppNexus wiki. We get all the required information in the Wiki itself.
  • They have given the right platform to both buyers and sellers to workout and meet their digital marketing needs and goals.

  • 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

  • Every organisation whether small, medium or big will always have room for improvement. So in the case of AppNexus I think they are already one of the top digital market leaders.
  • Their platform is user friendly so there is no particular feature that is hard to use unless we don't know how to use it.
  • There is a small time consuming process we are recently facing and that is when creating users for a particular publisher account. Previously we used to get the random system generated password when we click on get password button which is available below the username. Now AppNexus has recently introduced a system in which a link will be sent directly to publisher email id and the publishers are allowed to set their own password and it is agreed. But the problem here is we are seeing invalid token messages from lot of our publishers that is due to link expiry which was sent by the AppNexus. So we have to create a new user for the publishers and it is a somewhat time consuming process. AppNexus might aware of this and they might be working on this.

  • 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

AppNexus keeps most of our historical data, and learns based on previous campaigns, so future campaigns for the same advertiser are likely to do better based on the AppNexus algorithms

Because I think the interface is kind of confusing at the beginning and it confuses you a lot.

Because the support team does give you support, they take 24hrs to get back to you but once they open a ticket they focus on resolving the issue for you. My only problem is that you don't have a specific account representative assigned to you.

Alternatives Considered

Appnexus is the only one that i have used but I don't see why I would use anything else. It fits all of my needs, has extra things that I never got a chance to use and I look forward to learning and playing more with the data tools. I also like knowing that our user data is safe and never matched to identifiable information

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.
