The Trade Desk is the eponymous flagship product from the company headquartered in Ventura California, a demand-side / data management hybrid platform (DSP / DMP).https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/Rg/JE/FT4JOGKF21TU.pngYour programmatic partnerThe Trade Desk is a great partner and we have worked together on a number of campaigns. They work as our programmatic arm and they are a great DSP that leverages their technology to achieve very good CPAs while taking advantage of their vast reach. We have never encountered any problems working with them.,Their technology is very good. We have gotten great results working with them. They have vast coverage across the globe. They are able to do cookie matching, vastly increasing the reach of the campaigns.,They are not very transparent in terms of margins and fees. They need to get more video inventory, there is not enough. The reporting they provide is a bit limited.,8,The Trade Desk has helped us get more budget from clients by delivering results. It has allowed us to buy cheaper inventory than other online channels. It has allowed us to not invest on our own DSP solution and use theirs.,MoPub, Vungle, Cheetah Digital Marketing Suite (formerly Experian) and AppLovin,B2CProgrammatic JuggernautThe Trade Desk is a great programmatic partner. We have used them to run mobile and desktop campaigns. They helped us run campaigns on different GEOs across the globe. Their level of service is really good and they have a unique supply which helps us achieve our client goals, no matter if they are brand goals or performance targets.,They provide a unified ID that allows you to identify users across the web. Their performance algorithms work really well, meaning campaigns usually hit their desired CPA. Plenty of reach across the globe in all GEOs.,More data providers. I would love to get faster support via email. The platform is not very easy to use.,8,The Trade Desk had a positive ROI on our campaigns as we hit our desired CPA. It has allowed us to shut off other DSPs reducing costs. Their fees are not extremely high, so ROI did not take a big hit.,AppNexus,B2BIndustry Leading Product - Great Supporting CastTheTradeDesk is being used by one department to extend the reach of our campaigns. We buy media against our first party audience pixels to gather additional insights about our users and expand our mono-lingual network into a bilingual network. TheTradeDesk allows us deliver our campaigns in full at scale often focusing on in-view targeting metrics.,Allows you to very optimize and control bidding across pretty much every factor that impacts win rate/delivery. Engaged, hands-on account services team is readily available to provide insights, demonstrations, and quality assurance. Auto-optimization and pacing tools allow for less manual campaign management.,Reporting platform leaves a lot to be desired. Requires a lot of trial/error to pull exactly what you need to drive optimizations/learnings. The "stop"/"continue bidding" feature for sitelists, devices, player sizes, etc is awful. When you set something up specifically, you should not have the AUTOMATIC option to serve beyond those parameters. Trafficking video (VAST/VPAID) tags requires a manual insertion of a click URL. Completely redundant ask and is not provided by advertisers as that URL lives within the ad tag. Should not require multiple actions traffic a video tag. Creative approval process (manual) doesn't seem necessary and is not a part of peers' platforms. There is no "pause/deactivate" feature for creative, you remove them or adjust the end date.,9,Positively impacting ability to delivery in-view KPI campaigns across ad types (display, high impact, preroll). Slightly higher pricing structure requires a bit more conservative bidding in this platform compared to others. The customer service has been top notch. Adding to the confidence in building a lasting partnership. Access to product betas and offering product feedback are of interest to our organization.,DoubleClick and TouchPoint,B2C
