Pros and Cons

  • I like the ability to produce many ads that stay optimized.
  • It saves us a lot of time and effort.
  • The ability to massively upload changes across multiple campaigns.
  • It has an excellent user interface that makes it easy to plan and plan campaigns and budget levels.
  • It is somewhat complicated to be able to integrate the visualization component with Adobe Reports and Analytcs, I think it is almost impossible to do it.
  • The processes to configure and implement could be more agile.

Pros and Cons

  • Data Analytics: it provides good direction for future ad buys based on historic performance and makes you think critically rather than just blindly select options.
  • As with most Adobe products, it can be a little tedious to use and requires a bit of extra training and "googling" around to make sure you are getting things right. It has improved over time within the entire Adobe suite, and I anticipate that this will be true of this as well.
  • Adobe training and learning platforms can include a lot of technical terminology and jargon that makes it difficult for a novice to understand without feeling like they need a whole new education.

Pros and Cons

  • An all in one solution for so many things that range from advertising campaigns to pushing out content to PPC.
  • Integration for many channels without much setup, this includes lesser known search engines and various social media partners.
  • Automation for delegating many tasks that can be a hassle to accomplish.
  • Adobe Media Optimizer has incredibly slow customer support, be prepared to spend at least a week waiting for a reply from them.
  • You will need lots of training from Adobe for Adobe Media Optimizer as this program is very complex and unfortunately after the training period ends it becomes much harder to get most things done without reaching out to Adobe.
  • Too many bugs and quirks, for instance, I had to open a different browser just to get Adobe Media Optimizer to work, I use Chrome and its supported everywhere else.

Pros and Cons

  • Automation - One of Adobe Marketing Cloud’s amazing marketing solutions is Adobe Campaign. This allows users to implement marketing automation to increase their campaign productivity and deliver an amazing customer experience. I can even set up users so they can build individual customer profiles based on the interests, actions, and preferences that are tracked through different marketing channels.
  • A/B Split Testing – Most platforms have this now and most do not know how to even use it. However, the only way for a user to know how their marketing can be improved is to get a clear idea of how it is performing. But if all their data is in separate locations, it’s difficult to know which image, text or video is leading to sales or conversions. Adobe Marketing Cloud helps with keeping all of this clear for everyone on board.
  • Social Analytics – when you or your customers are looking to improve their social marketing results, this platform offers Adobe Social, which is a social management platform that allows users to monitor conversations, promote and publish content, and analyze and engage with followers. One of the best parts is that the system automatically attaches tracking codes to users’ social content to identify what content drives engagement. It is a very powerful tool.
  • Hard to learn - It is not one of those plug and play programs. It is very confusing, even to seasoned program specialists like myself. There were a few times I literally felt like I was pulling my hair out trying to get things to run correctly.
  • Price - They claim it is set up for small to large companies, but when you check all the other programs out there, their pricing is steep. Adobe has always been that way-- they are really not for the beginners and don't care about the newbies.
  • Time Consuming - if you are a newbie, the learning that is involved just to get up and running can take a full week. The only cheat I can give a newbie is that there are tons of others on Youtube that feel the same way and now there are great tutorials out there that can help you over a learning curve.

Pros and Cons

  • It has multiple customized report templates.
  • It allows us to make personalized simulations based on number of clicks, impressions and expenses.
  • It has a great technical support that answers all the doubts quickly and clearly.
  • High price. Although it is very functional and you can improve profit margins the product itself is expensive.
  • It is complicated to use. You need a lot of time and dedication to learn how to use it.

Pros and Cons

  • Using one platform I can manage my campaigns across multiple channels like social media, email marketing and even ad placements on specific websites.
  • The Adobe Analytics provides site data with audience segmentation to help make better-targeted decisions for clients.
  • The initial learning curve with such exhaustive software tools can be very daunting.
  • Some of the automation scripts for managing workflows can be made more intuitive.

Pros and Cons

  • The implementation process is very streamlined as far as single site implementation. Once installed and your desired tracking metrics are rolling in. It is easy for you to build your portfolios to be modeled to achieve these goals and do it in the most efficient way.
  • The reporting aspect of the program also is one of its greatest benefits. No longer do you have to base the success of a paid search campaign on blurry metrics like CTR and SERP rankings. Media optimizer gives you the ability to track complete conversions all the way back to the paid ad that resulted in conversion, as well as the keyword that was searched.
  • Before the actual optimization process begins, and the dollars start being spent, there is a period of learning for the tool that allows it to conduct hypothetical, but statistical based modeling that allows you to see what sort of optimization to expect before turning on the tool and spending actual budget.
  • Initial code implementation can be difficult, depending on the size and style of the website you are trying to implement it on. Use of the new Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager can make this project significantly easier.
  • We experienced difficulty initially when we were hard coding the javascript onto the site while others were making website changes and this sometimes resulted in data inaccuracies.
  • The process from inception to actually getting your website actually up and running with the optimizer engine can be lengthy, especially when doing several sites concurrently. For smaller applications I can see this taking a much shorter time frame, but can be quite time consuming for multiple websites.

Pros and Cons

  • The ability to automate our bids was very useful, so that we wouldn't have to focus on it.
  • While it took awhile at first, the bid strategies worked to varying degrees of success. This allowed us to have different strategies based on the categories of our products and other factors.
  • The ability to create Text Ads based on your Data Feed (Advanced Campaign Management) was also super useful.
  • the UI was horrible and slow, and generally not very user friendly. Just trying to do something was a chore, because of the how bad the UI was.
  • Documentation and Support left a lot to be desired. Had a hard time finding out how to do something on our own, so we had to email our rep a LOT. Whatever little documentation they had, had very little information.
  • Very slow to react to budget changes. We would have budget cuts and budget increases, and while making changes in the UI, it seemed like it took a week for the changes to take affect. That can't happen in a fast moving industry like ours.
  • Implementation was a HUGE pain in the ass.
