We use their platform mainly for their native video placements, as well as the ability to run those on custom targets StackAdapt creates based on keywords and site lists we provide. We have also used it to retarget users who have watched at least 50% of one of our promoted videos.,StackAdapt's video units work particularly well in terms of view rates across both Pre-Roll and Out-Stream video. This is, of course, depending on creative as well, but there has been consistent performance across most of the campaigns I have run. These video units also serve to drive a decent amount of web traffic to our client's landing page. With CTRs that often out-perform other video centered vendors we have run with. They are able to retarget users who have watched a portion of your video content with static in-feed native ads. Though we haven't seen many conversions coming from this tactic, the referral traffic has been at or above our benchmarks.,Their reporting tool seems clunky at first, and not super intuitive to use. But once you spend a little time with it the tool can actually be pretty useful. Sometimes the dashboard function doesn't properly filter out everything you ask it to, forcing you to refresh the page and try again. The pacing tool shown in the dashboard often makes no sense in the numbers it represents. My campaigns have just about always delivered in full, so this isn't exactly an issue, but still confusing to look at.,9,The way we use StackAdapt, the ROI is usually negative.

At our company, the media department uses StackAdapt across a number of our clients. We use their platform mainly for their native video placements, as well as the ability to run those on custom targets StackAdapt creates based on keywords and site lists we provide. We have also used it to retarget users who have watched at least 50% of one of our promoted videos.
  • StackAdapt's video units work particularly well in terms of view rates across both Pre-Roll and Out-Stream video. This is, of course, depending on creative as well, but there has been consistent performance across most of the campaigns I have run.
  • These video units also serve to drive a decent amount of web traffic to our client's landing page. With CTRs that often out-perform other video centered vendors we have run with.
  • They are able to retarget users who have watched a portion of your video content with static in-feed native ads. Though we haven't seen many conversions coming from this tactic, the referral traffic has been at or above our benchmarks.
  • Their reporting tool seems clunky at first, and not super intuitive to use. But once you spend a little time with it the tool can actually be pretty useful.
  • Sometimes the dashboard function doesn't properly filter out everything you ask it to, forcing you to refresh the page and try again.
  • The pacing tool shown in the dashboard often makes no sense in the numbers it represents. My campaigns have just about always delivered in full, so this isn't exactly an issue, but still confusing to look at.
When there is content significant to your clients' branding/goals at the time, StackAdapt is a good tool to reach both current and prospective audiences. The custom targeting capabilities can be a nice addition to a campaign when you want to reach a specific audience based on their intent or topics of interest. If time allows, you can get very granular in the detail of these audiences.

StackAdapt is used by our entire organization. We use it for retargeting advertising for ourselves and for clients.
  • Outstanding customer service - highly responsive.
  • Open to customer innovation - we have submitted multiple feature suggestions and seen them implemented - even new lines of business.
  • Simple to use interface - anyone comfortable with modern SaaS apps will have no problem using it.
  • Lack of highly refined targeting for job titles and geographies
  • No list-based retargeting
  • No option to hit specific domains individually without jerryrigging it
StackAdapt is best suited for companies which currently do native, display, and video advertising, and those companies doing retargeting. It is best for companies who have tight integration with their martech/adtech agencies.

StackAdapt is the only native platform we use in our agency. Our team in the paid media department uses the platform to promote client content.
  • StackAdapt provides quality traffic to our client websites.
  • StackAdapt's staff is extremely knowledgeable and will do anything to help you and your clients.
  • StackAdapt's process of making sure no traffic from their platform is fraudulent, is amazing.
  • There aren't many things I find that need improvement on the StackAdapt platform. Whenever we suggest a change, they happily oblige, and do anything they can to build it into their platform.
StackAdapt is well-suited to promote any content your clients have to offer. The traffic they provide to our client's websites is highly qualified and they provide some of the longest times on site from any platform that we use.
