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.

I feel pretty neutral about Google Marketing Platform. For the longest time, my company wasn't using it because each of the features (Data Studio, Analytics, etc.) could be accessed separately. In fact, most of the time, I don't even go into Google Marketing Platform because it's easier to directly navigate to the individual platforms. There are very few features about GMP that can only be accessed from the GMP UI. The Integrations Center is probably the main feature I utilize from the GMP UI, which allows me to see a summary of the integrations I have in place across all my client properties and accounts.
Read full review Pros I like that Celtra is under a high-quality price and minimum requirement. It is highly effective and easy to understand; it has competitive performance and a very intuitive interface. The campaigns are phenomenal, and the marketing management is excellent. We have access to excellent analytics and data, and we get to see if our campaigns are failing or not. As for formats, I can pretty much create whatever I want. Read full review Bringing together data from multiple channels and engines and allows you to visualize the data in an easy to use platform. This saves time from using multiple logins for the different platforms. Auto bidding tools save time from manual bidding, as it allows you to set the specific terms around what levels you want to cap your CPCs at. You then let DoubleClick adjust your bids to gain the most conversions from the cheapest CPCs. This frees up time to do other in-depth analysis and strategy. DoubleClick also has the ability to track conversions and clicks on any page using their floodlight tags. This is good for tracking certain actions on yours or a client's site and is especially good if they do not use any other tools, such as Google Analytics or Adobe, to track conversions and user actions on site. You can also use these in conjunction with the auto bidding tools. Read full review Cons 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 Read full review The process for on-boarding new users can be difficult if they do not already have a Gmail or Gmail-linked account. Difficult to troubleshoot technical issues (with the platform, with tags, etc.) because of the lack of customer support. Unclear if the agency has a dedicated team or individual to assist, and often have to deal with out-sourced support teams. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Due to its adapting behavior with industry ad formats and seamless integration with publishers and DSP's, I don't see myself moving away from DCM. As we see the display advertising is getting more programatic and automated due to the rise of DSP and concept of RTB, Double Click has evolved with new advanced best practices

The Doubleclick interface is easy and simple to get a hang of. The options are slightly limited compared to other DSPs. But, for a simple campaign, this is a great DSP to move forward with. They have a ton of data and can plug into a lot of different partners

They do not have strong support team. It is tough to get answer when I need it. They always refer you to an online guide and not an actual person. If so, the person is based out of an offshore team in India and does not know the specific client goals .

I would highly recommend asking clients to provide 3PAS tags or use an internal 3PAS

takes a lot more time for everything, mainly for the campaigns setup. This also leads to many mistakes, which impact the performance. I've used
on a couple of previous clients and we've had many problems with it, mainly with correct conversion tracking and account optimizations. Besides,
is behind all the new features available on AdWords, which makes the tracking also not very flexible.
Read full review Return on Investment Positive - we have a preferred CPM rate while using Celtra so we are able to save costs there. Positive - no need for outsourcing to other creative agencies so we save more costs Positive - achieving KPIs for our clients ensures more revenue down the road as we establish ourselves as a trustworthy vendor Read full review DS3 has improved ROI considerably due to its ability to make the work of a team of digital marketers to go further and improving internal efficiency. There is a notable improvement in account performance for those integrated with DoubleClick as opposed to not, with better tracking, new bid strategy options, and a more responsive interface. The additional fee on top of media spend is a considerable expense for a large advertiser, but the necessity of a product/solution such as this means that there is always likely to be some comparative cost.
