I feel the RollWorks platform is a great way to dip your toes into an account-based marketing approach. The easy-to-use features and limited initial requirements as a great way to understand the pillars of a good B2B or account-based strategy. I also feel the support team is strong, especially during onboarding.

Customer demographics that are not typical of ours are being served by our marketing efforts. We've seen fast expansion as a result of the exposure Yahoo has given us. Because of the low cost per click, users can see results right away. The more traffic there is, the better.

Pros
NextRoll
  • It helps you intimately target users from your targeted accounts list on multiple advertising platforms in a highly effective way.
  • Their customer success and support team are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure your success.
  • The reporting capabilities of the platform. The ability to really dig deep into the micro-interactions from accounts and contacts across your targeted accounts list.

  • Predictive Modeling - always performs well for Conversion & CPA based campaigns; out-performed other DSPs with similar tools.
  • Email Receipt Retargeting - no other DSP offers the ability to do this, so it is 100% proprietary, as far as I know.

Cons
NextRoll
  • The price is a little high for the product provided.
  • Some features require a certain number of won opportunities or open opportunities to leverage, which could be difficult for a small/new business.
  • This product has fewer features than some competitors like it does not include attribution modeling for other pieces of the funnel or predictive models I have seen in other products.

Due to the fast impact of RollWorks in a short period of time across both marketing and sales. What is unusual about the RollWorks in our annual budgeting process is that there is no need to provide a business case for RollWorks' renewal. We see the value on a daily basis. RollWorks has provided clear insight up to the C level so there is no hard sell at the executive level. All stakeholders across the organization consider RollWorks to be a long-term, integral part of our marketing stack. We always are evaluating substitutes for current tech stack providers but feel that RollWorks is unmatched in its space

Usability
NextRoll
RollWorks has the most intuitive interface of any tool in our multi-platform marketing stack. Any user who has worked with a CRM tool will find it much easier than say a HubSpot or Salesforce to set up and launch quickly. The adoption curve for maturing capabilities and usage is very short.

Reliability and Availability
NextRoll
We have no issues with uptime or downtime with RollWorks. The application runs consistently. I don't recall a bug or outage issue in the year that we have been users of RollWorks. The true test is complaints from our user base - there have been none at all which is unusual for our marketing stack applications.

Performance
NextRoll
The RollWorks interface performs well. The load time has no noticeable friction. Reports are delivered quickly and easily. We integrate RollWorks with our Hubspot and Google Analytics platforms. There were a few tweaks to get those integrations working in sync but the RollWorks account team was there to help with anything our internal technical team couldn't solve.

Support Rating
NextRoll
The RollWorks support team has been fantastic any time I've needed to contact them. About a year ago, I made a gross user error on my end and they were quick and kind, helping me rectify it. As far as implementation, the set-up of RollWorks is mostly self-guided, but it's incredibly intuitive.

Online Training
NextRoll
We implemented RollWorks during the pandemic and across geographies. Therefore in-person training was not an option. We felt that we got the full impact of an in-person training experience from the RollWorks team, and that in-person training would actually have been less effective for us due to the expense and logistics. It is rare that we consider online training to be as effective as in-person so this is a credit to the RollWorks account team.

Implementation Rating
NextRoll
RollWorks implementation couldn't have gone more smoothly. A key success factor is inclusion and early involvement of all those who will be working with RollWorks in any way to go through the set up and launch process. We thought through and brought the right players to the table to take full advantage of the RollWorks training direct from the team - rather than having to train others one off later

Alternatives Considered
NextRoll
The major difference I have seen between Rollworks and competitors is that Rollworks seems to be a much less complex platform. While other tools focus on things like personalization, sales activation, and automation, Rollworks focuses on target accounts and advertising which eliminates distractions and allows us to really focus on what the tool was made for rather than investing in a larger scale tool that we won't get our money worth from.

Google Ad Manager is like an angel coming into your organization to save you when you've been battered, beaten, and bruised. The entire UI is a wonderful breath of fresh air. It just "works" where ONE doesn't. The costs, the learning curve, the data organization all outweigh EVERY SINGLE feature of ONE by AOL.

Scalability
NextRoll
RollWorks had various options that allowed us to choose the right one for our current situation. We felt that RollWorks gave us the flexibility to start at a certain level within our core marketing and sales teams and then easily add users as our functions are expanding. RollWorks offers upgraded levels of plans and add on features that we can foresee using in the future.

Return on Investment
NextRoll
  • Tough to say the exact impact, although RollWorks tries to help you show that. They include an ROI measure tied to your pipeline. But it's not really possible to say that because 1 person at an account MAY have seen our ad that it influenced a buy. It's a little hocus pocus here.
  • Our target audience is not very active in LinkedIn so we need to find ways to get in front of them outside of this business channel. Our thought/hope is that RollWorks is helping us do that.

  • AdTech helps us determine where to steer our audience, and where to project our next campaign.
  • AdTech helps us view data based on user likes, clicks, and analyze trends among our audience.
  • What I don't like about AdTech is that it can sometimes put some people out of a job, as it streamlines work to the point that some on payroll may be...well, unnecessary.
