Branch Metrics, Inc.
Branch well suited: Branch links are perfecting for embedding into our email service provider (SendGrid), paid media channels (Facebook, Google, ASA), organic media (Instagram, Facebook, content marketing, referral) and push notification platform (OneSignal) to be able to evaluate actions taken from users that clicked on those branch links. No matter the data from these links, they are accurate and are easily exported to our database and CRM to determine ROI, and find weak points in our major funnels.

Moat is well suited to implement into digital placements that are being served through third-party ad servers (Campaign Manager, Flashtalking, etc). It holds your publishers accountable from a viewability standpoint. If you are running high dynamic or site serving placements with 1x1 or click trackers, you aren't able to measure viewability and are at the mercy of publishers providing viewability metrics.

Cons
Branch Metrics, Inc.
  • Multiplayers redirection is important feature. In our marketing process for [our] Ace Tutor app https://www.acetutor.io, we have a referral reward campaign for which we want to aggregate clicks from lower level links to higher level links. For example, we created unique Branch Links for 10 marketing interns, and each intern wanted to create Branch Links for their own 10 delegates, the clicks of the Branch Links from these delegates would be automatically rolled up to the right intern's Branch Link, so we can make payment following the aggregation paths. Currently, Branch Links do not support this kind of multiplayer or multi-layer redirections.

  • I’ve experienced some issues exporting reports into an Excel doc and have to manually copy and paste data with can be very time-consuming.
  • You have to manually wrap video tags with the MOAT pixel which can be a tedious process.
  • Video and display are in separate interfaces so you have to export separately and then consolidate into one report.

Branch Metrics, Inc.
Branch's links are the most consistent in the mobile space. They work across desktop and mobile, where AppsFlyer and Deeplink's didn't consistently perform in both places. Branch's measurement is more consistent across all customer touch points as well, which gives our marketing and growth teams the answers they need without any struggle.
