MatchCraft

If you have multiple campaigns running at the same time, you need your campaign setups to be quick and easy, or you have multiple users managing campaigns, then MatchCraft Advantage is right for you. It also performs well with both small and large budgets. If you want to do re-targeting but don't want/know how to implement the tag, MatchCraft has built-in features for that. However if you want to run video campaigns and campaigns in specific mobile apps, then for now MatchCraft will not work for you

Sojern RevDirect

Sojern is well suited for those who are measuring ROI and are looking to have more direct bookings to the website. Google has made it increasingly more difficult to book directly on a website. I believe it takes about three clicks to get to a website through Google listings and Sojern has made it easier for us to make our websites more visible in rankings. The same goes for OTAs, with Sojern we have a better means of combating pesky OTAs.

Cons

MatchCraft

  • Not all Google/Bing features are available through the MatchCraft platform. Since they are limited to what is available in the API some features like video campaign management and specific app targeting are missing.
  • Customized report scheduling is not yet available for each campaign and the automated reports can only be sent to one email address. Additional recipients have to be sent their's manually.
  • Reports can take a little time to be generated. Not more than 1 minute but it can slow you down if you have multiple reports to send.

  • For those who don't analyze data on a daily basis it would be beneficial to have simple descriptions of the collected data.

Alternatives Considered

MatchCraft

The interface on MatchCraft is much easier to get started with than the native PPC provider interfaces. MatchCraft finds ways of maximizing ROI within current spend target rather than recommending 'increased budget' as the fix for all issues. the reporting dashboard is also easier to use and report generation takes only a few clicks. The main downside is that MatchCraft is limited to what the PPC providers allow through the APIs
