Marin Software

It's well suited when you have to integrate it with another data source, like an FTP for example. The dimensions you can assign to campaigns or ad group levels help for easier performance management and reporting.What makes it difficult is that everytime you need to update anything on the account, you can't use the publisher but have to do it through Marin. This makes the whole process very time consuming and causes more mistakes. Also if you have paused anything on the publisher and you don't remember to sync marin after, all changes on the publisher will get lost if you make new changes on marin

Terminus ABM Platform

If you're looking for a display advertising option, then Terminus is one of the major players - for better or worse. They source intent data from a third party (Bombora, I believe) so you have some targeting options available to you beyond company and position within. Advertising costs are in addition to the base contract price for their service so that's something to keep in mind if you're trying to work within a smaller budget. Since this is display advertising, the billing method is CPM (cost per thousand impressions). Their ad network does include the option to do Sponsored Posts with LinkedIn (although you can do that on your own honestly).

Pros

Marin Software

  • Marin is a self-serve platform. You can tailor your campaigns per your preference/convenience/needs. You can customize your view, see % changes, create custom columns depending on your Key Performance Indicators, and set any sort of dimensions and labels that will help you filter for your campaigns on a daily basis.
  • Bidding and changes to destination URLs can be done through mass edits within the UI, without having to upload bulk-sheets. You push any changes from Marin to the Engines, and can also pull in your changes from Bing/AdWords engines by syncing your campaigns as well. The system will not publish anything you do not manually post until Midnight PST. You can copy paste straight from your excel bulksheet into the uploading tool (or upload the document through unicode text).
  • The Administrative log keeps track of all changes, and keeps users (through their logins) accountable for any edits. This way, you can filter for your name, and find the edits that you made, just to double check your work, or to make sure you are publishing the correct changes. There is a keyword- group- and campaign-level history/settings log, where you can see the name of the user who created, edited, published, paused, activated, deleted, etc. any item.
  • You can set up alerts that will help you manage accounts: anything from active campaigns with 0 ad copy, to finding keywords in low ad positions.
  • If you push duplicate keywords, the system will reject them, keeping our accounts from getting clouded due to human error. There is no need to download existing keywords or groups and use their keyword or group IDs to make any edits--instead, editing is a breeze because the system detects the new changes automatically. The only need for IDs is when making edits to creative.

Terminus ABM Platform

  • Terminus does a good job of tracking the activity around the ads we put into the marketplace and it helps us learn what works and what doesn't for our audience.
  • The site visit functionality is great. From here I can search for a prospect by name and see what pages they are looking at and the last time they were on there.
  • Getting a spike report for prospects that are enrolled in ABM campaigns each week allows me to set up my week focusing on those prospects that raised their hand.

Cons

Marin Software

  • Support. They are addressing this currently, and things seem to have improved lately, but we were experiencing long delays in getting support tickets addressed.
  • New Google Shopping campaigns will not even show in the tool. Old PLA campaigns are fine however.
  • Random missing data. Typically this happens after an update, but we've seen data missing in various clients. Usually logging a support ticket and having Marin Support rerun a backend process resolves the issue.

Terminus ABM Platform

  • Terminus has useful insight but it doesn't translate into actionable intelligence for all users.
  • Terminus could improve through proactive suggestions delivered at the point of consumption, which for most sellers is the CRM. Standalone data in a field is only useful if the user thinks to look for it.
  • Terminus might deliver some of the features above in their UI, but most users don't want to go a separate UI. It should all be in CRMs (for sellers and SDRs).

Likelihood to Renew

Marin Software 7.6
Based on 23 answers
I've used Marin Software now at three separate companies where I evaluated the platform along with several other internal partners. In each case, we did make the decision to renew based on our positive experience with the app and the customer support we received at the Enterprise level. Especially when we had complex integration questions or faced the change to Google's enhanced campaigns - Marin worked closely with us to make the transition seamless.

Brightfunnel is a very useful tool but can only be used to the fullest if your data is there. It is hard for organizations with bad data to fully utilize its abilities.

Marin has a very basic layout, which makes it easy to use and easy to learn and this is very important in a fast paced environment, when there is not a whole lot of time to learn a new program without getting caught behind. Marin has some nice training that makes this whole process super easy.

I have had mostly successful support from Marin Software with the exception of one individual who I am assuming was new due to their lack of knowledge about the product. I do not hold this against Marin Software significantly because any time I have ever called/emailed with questions I have received help fast and accurately.

Interactive helpful videos, summaries, and quizzes help a user learn the platform in demo-mode. The only challenge was that once you clicked certain buttons per instructions, you couldn't necessarily go back to retake notes without redoing the entire module.

Implementation Rating

Marin Software

Marin Software 9.8
Based on 5 answers
I think if we had known what we wanted, the implementation would have been perfect. Since we didn't, there was quite a bit of back and forth between ethology and the implementation team at Marin. The process ended up taking a lot longer than we expected it to take, but worked out in the end.

Alternatives Considered

Marin Software

Marin is a must have for any enterprise-level PPC account. The time savings from task automation and the very sophisticated bidding platform can help any advertiser or agency effectively scale any account.In both AdWords and Bing, the bulk editing and automated bidding features are less reliable and prone to error. The interfaces are also unnecessarily complicated and outdated.While Google Analytics is a great tool, there are no features that tie true revenue data into these interfaces, limiting the amount you can really optimize around ROI.

Sendoso and Terminus are alike in that they both work to add "personalization" into Marketing. However, they are not competitors per-say. Sendoso personalizes the physical interactions (direct mail) while Terminus works on the digital landscape. I would say Terminus more competes with SEO or SEM, in which a user of Terminus is experiencing much less wasted dollars than that of SEM or SEO

Return on Investment

Marin Software

  • It has definitely increased employee efficiency because we run on Yahoo Gemini, Bing, and Google. If we had to optimize/report per engine, it would take hours and hours each week.
  • I think it's made optimizations less of a daunting task in my daily routine. I've been able to pinpoint where our ROI suffers and work from there in a matter of minutes.
  • The customer service has gotten better and could still be improved. Our Marin rep used to be horrible at returning messages but once he got support, we were able to implement a ton more pixels and betas.

Terminus ABM Platform

  • Targeted advertising - knowing our ads were being seen by key accounts vs. the broader web
  • Web traffic - large increase in web traffic based on Terminus spend, which again felt great because we knew it was from key accounts
  • Message refinement - thinking about different groups/buckets helped inform our messaging strategy
