Brand Networks Platform

If you have a multiple social channel strategy, the Brand Networks Platform does a good job of comparing and summarizing the cross-platform performance of all the social campaigns. They also have really good optimization technology, so if you have a beginner media buyer who doesn't have a lot of time to devote to (or knowledge about) optimizing campaigns, the BN tool would be helpful.

Comscore vCE

The most important aspect is that Comscore offers one of the largest analytics suites available on display, mobile, video, and TV. Due to the scale of its data, it also provides a benchmark for analyzing the advertising industry. Finally, I like the fact that I can track site performance of my company's digital properties.

Pros

Brand Networks Platform

  • Sleek design -- very attractive UI
  • Constantly innovating and updating the platform
  • Their support desk is very good. Very responsive and can usually update my issue within 1-2 business days.

Comscore vCE

  • It helps in advanced reporting capabilities such as overnight reporting of audience demographics and integration with Comscore’s new multi-platform audience data.
  • It has the ability to combine metrics with other digital campaigns involving display and rich media to provide an unduplicated view of audiences across multiple ad formats.
  • It has global and cross-geographical campaign reporting capabilities.

Cons

Brand Networks Platform

  • API data issues. There are somewhat frequent breakdowns in continuous data being pulled from the social platforms
  • The campaign creation flow is a little clunky and has a couple bugs. Users often forgo using the platform to set up new campaigns, and use the native platforms instead
  • Because it's in continual development, there are lots of little bugs that slip through the cracks

Comscore vCE

  • Due to the large array of products within the Comscore platform, it is difficult to search in the platform.
  • It also lacks the capability to track programmatic traffic which is unfortunate considering the impact it is having in the digital advertising industry.
  • The help section has not been elaborated very well making it difficult to navigate through the platform and fetch the right report.

Alternatives Considered

Brand Networks Platform

Facebook for Business has far fewer bugs and errors. Brand Networks has made some major changes over the 3 years that I have been using the platform, but because they are constantly changing and overhauling their platform, there are naturally more bugs in the system -- and this can interfere with the user experience.

Comscore vCE

We have selected Comscore because in Google Analytics it is not possible to reprocess the information: you have to be careful when tagging campaigns, creating filters to segment information in profiles, etc. Any error can cause the data to not register correctly and the data cannot be reprocessed. If they are lost or not registered correctly, nothing can be done to recover them. The same would happen if the tracking code of any of the pages on the website were deleted.

Return on Investment

Brand Networks Platform

  • If you can create the report you need through automation, you can have those automatically sent to your email or a client's email. That saves time.
  • If optimization works correctly, you get even more efficient costs against you given campaign objective.
  • However, when features are broken, or there is a bug and I can't pull the performance data I need immediately, it detracts from my productivity

Comscore vCE

  • The business problems that we are solving using Comscore data are vast.
  • The most notable being that we have more up-to-date data to provide our clients. When they are running TV ad campaigns, they want to see exactly how it performs.
  • Having to wait 2-3 months at a time for data isn't helpful, so with Comscore, being able to show them within a couple of weeks is excellent.
