Shareaholic

This is a great tool to use for content sharing and link building. So if either of those are part of your digital marketing strategy, which they should be, Shareaholic may be beneficial for your business

Smaato

Smaato is very well suited for user acquisition and retargeting companies. Their overlap in terms of audiences and publishers with other exchanges is very limited, which makes it a great alternative when you need to scale a campaign and want to maintain your frequency cap. They work very well in branding campaigns as well as performance campaigns.

In terms of co-creation, the process of working with Shareaholic was easy and pleasant. Furthermore, the design of their site is clean and modern. The Shareaholic team is also active on social media, a quality I like to look for when targeting products for content collaboration

Smaato has a UI where you can control your line items on the traffic you want to receive. That is a key unique selling point that other SSPs don't offer. Most of the items that you will need like reporting can be done on a self serve manner and that is a big plus, specifically for changes that need to happen really fast and you don't need to deal with account managers that may take some time to answer emails.

Smaato's account management team is very professional. They are quite fast in terms of customer support, which is very helpful. One item that stands out is that they are willing to understand what you need for each campaign and what is the best way to move forward. They don't just jump quickly into trying to upsell more of Smaato's products (audiences, data) like other SSPs do.
