SmartyAds DSP

SmartyAds DSP works mainly for campaigns that are not very concerned about brand safety. The main issue we have had with them has been related to fraud since they are resellers of a lot of inventory. If you need to run on traffic, that is 100% clean, and then you should try other DSPs.

Pros

SmartyAds DSP

  • Easy-to-use, friendly interface.
  • Interesting integrations.
Gabriela Band | TrustRadius Reviewer

Springbot

  • The demographic data was great. I could see how many males vs. females, ages, income, married, with or without children. It gave me a good idea of who my customers were.
  • Using their tracking URLs in all of our campaigns allowed us to get a better idea of what exactly was driving revenue.
  • Not only could I see top performing products, which I can do within Magento, I could also see top selling categories and colors.
  • I can pull a Coupon Usage report our of Magento, but Springbot gave me additional info like AOV and ROI on those codes.
  • Springbot also gave me a lot of info about our abandoned carts. It shows us which products are most abandoned along with views, conversion rates, etc.
  • Springbot gave us an Instagram Shop page that allowed us to curate social shares and then tie them to products on our site.

Cons

SmartyAds DSP

  • Support team is not very good.
  • Not a lot of direct traffic, mostly reseller traffic.

  • After our purchase, I let spring or know that I was currently too busy to implement the system and to put things on hold. They ignored this request and kept charging us a monthly fee without using any of their systems. I have only logged in once. Nothing has been set up. They can see that from their side.
  • After multiple emails back and forth their out was in the user agreement. I never asked for my money back only credit so I can regroup and when I have time get on to implant the systems. They tell me they don't do that.
  • They don't care about any of the customer's needs. They only care about charging you that monthly fee. Terrible bus plan. With enough bad feedback, they will suffer from such a narrow plan.
  • I wish we had actual information about the cons using the system. Unfortunately I was not given the opportunity to do unless I wanted to keep paying while not using the system.

We have raved about Springbot's support because they always get back with us so quickly. Our rep, Jared has been phenomenal in helping us, always being available to chat with us and explaining some of the metrics with us so we can better understand. He completely handles our ads, checks on them, and lets us know when to update and why.

Alternatives Considered

SmartyAds DSP

MoPub is more focused and tries to reach a more typical inventory. SmartyAds DSP covers the different consumer touchpoints across various formats and works on providing different inventory sources to differentiate from traditional DSPs. They copy the look and feel of traditional platforms, but they need to develop more their reporting tools.

Springbit is more expensive, more complicated and delivered less.

Return on Investment

SmartyAds DSP

  • More inventory, more spend, ore budget, better ROI.
  • Fraud issues and refunds, decreasing ROI.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Springbot

  • Springbot gave us a better idea of who our customer was. We just launched in January 2015 having been B2B previously. So we weren't really sure who we were marketing to.
  • I only paid $200/month for the service so I didn't waste a ton of money trying it out. They have a 30 day cancellation policy so I wasn't stuck in a year long contract.
  • It was a let down because I had such high hopes of everything it would allow me to do and see with one platform. Give them a couple more years and I think they will work out the kinks.
