Terminal1One MOS offers a "DMP lite" that can help advertisers begin to grow their 1st party data without leveraging a separate DMP. As precise targeting becomes increasingly important, advertisers must begin to cultivate audiences that they can then take action on in the future. Additionally, if a client requires intense customer support, TerminalOne MOS is one of the best in the business.

The Trade Desk

After extensive research of DSP and DMP platforms in the market, our agency made the wise decision to license TTD's platform and develop a long-term partnership. TTD continues to innovate and offer cutting-edge media buying solutions, access to more audience data segments, and access to new and emerging media channels like CTV/OTT and digital-out-of-home. We couldn't be happier with TTD's technology and is one of the most advanced agency users of TTD is a key differentiator for our agency.

Pros

MediaMath

  • It helps in managing and optimizing prospecting and re-marketing campaigns extremely efficiently using multiple source of data providers.
  • It is easy to integrate with display servers, data providers, and also other partners which make campaigns really efficient and optimize your CPA goals. MediaMath also provides you training via New Marketing Institue which is very helpful.
  • It also keeps on innovation with respect to partnerships and on boarding tools such as display collision detection tools. It was exciting to see that how easy it is to work closely with accounts team and they have amazing hands on working on these tools.

Cons

MediaMath

  • Data integration and priority DMP are still lagging with the competition but a lot of efforts have been done in this field to bridge that gap.
  • The documentation of their API isn't always updated correctly so some functions are either obsolete or changed completely.

The Trade Desk

  • Reporting platform leaves a lot to be desired. Requires a lot of trial/error to pull exactly what you need to drive optimizations/learnings.
  • The "stop"/"continue bidding" feature for sitelists, devices, player sizes, etc is awful. When you set something up specifically, you should not have the AUTOMATIC option to serve beyond those parameters.
  • Trafficking video (VAST/VPAID) tags requires a manual insertion of a click URL. Completely redundant ask and is not provided by advertisers as that URL lives within the ad tag. Should not require multiple actions traffic a video tag.
  • Creative approval process (manual) doesn't seem necessary and is not a part of peers' platforms. There is no "pause/deactivate" feature for creative, you remove them or adjust the end date.

At this point, I know there are better options out there for OUR use case. This is not true of everyone, so I don't want to give them a zero because I don't like their tool or value proposition. They are a great tool, for what they do, and have a great group of people running things and providing support.

It's very intuitive. We had some training materials, but found that users were able to navigate through the software without needing many resources. Our only suggestion would be to add hover-over capability in the browser, so users can see a pop-up message further explaining what each button does.

We noted no issues with our limited interaction with support. The software operated just as expected and we found that we were able to navigate needs on our own. We understand that The Trade Desk offers excellent support, so we believe it will be a good resource to us in the future.

Alternatives Considered

MediaMath

In our case, we prefer MediaMath because of its online support and its history, since we have been using it for several years and we have seen how it has improved over time. It does not mean that there are no other options, but if something works for you, why complicate yourself. Sometimes a small saving of money can mean a big loss of time, and that incurs the productivity of the team and the company.

The Trade Desk

The Trade Desk is a much better product than AppNexus. Even though both products showed promise awhile back, AppNexus stopped innovating and The Trade Desk became specialists on data, cross site tracking and CTV inventory thus having a better and more unique product that actually adds value to your advertising efforts.

Return on Investment

MediaMath

  • T1 delivered positive results for multiple clients in regards to ROI
  • T1 also produced campaigns that did not meet goals
  • HOWEVER, both scenarios are as a result of the pilot and not the plane, if you will. T1 is simply a gateway to reach desired customers and I believe it proficiently provides opportunities to do so.

The Trade Desk

  • The good thing about having an agency account is The Trade Desk lets you add your markups to the client billing.
  • We had a very positive response from clients regarding their perceived ROI on their ad spend through The Trade Desk.
  • We did not have many national clients, mostly local dealerships, so it was difficult for them to allocate a lot of funds to display advertising, even though the ROI yield was acceptable.
