Overall Satisfaction with DoubleClick

Particular teams choose to use DoubleClick at Performics based on their clients' needs. I used it for one client but use a different third party source for another client so it varies widely but can be manipulated for all sizes for data. I think it works well but the overview tabs are not as consolidated and easy-to-read as Marin. I wish it could be simplified with rows and columns of data, almost like a spreadsheet.


  • Functionality in general. It works well and I have never had to question the accuracy of my data.
  • The real-time update is AMAZING, especially if you might expect a lot of traffic in a few campaigns.
  • The data manipulation and connectivity to other Google products is easy and smooth


  • Automated bid strategies are particularly confusing to set up compared to AdWords or Marin.
  • I wish there was a consolidated overview tab.
  • DoubleClick definitely has great customer service and quick turn around times.
  • It is also easier for us to keep tabs on our campaigns throughout the day.
I wasn't involved in the selection process however, but I was happy with the functionality because I had to update promotional ad copy on a daily basis.
I guess it depends on what type of data and reporting is the client/campaign going to require? Certain dimensions and things are necessary for my client that DoubleClick wouldn't be able to integrate well.
