Overall Satisfaction with DoubleClick

We used it as the primary DSP for our Online Advertising Agency. Doubleclick Campaign Manager also served as our 3rd Party Adserver. We used Doubleclick Bid Manager with the majority of our clients. It provided us with a more substantial reach of inventory as well as providing pretty indepth analysis of our Media Spend
  • The detail of reporting capabilities is awesome. The data that we can pull really allows us to narrow down to our desired target audience.
  • The UI is improving every day. I like how it has become a much more visual platform with high level data.
  • While the UI is getting better, I think having the option to view the most important metrics directly in the platform rather than in .csv exports would be beneficial
  • The load time of the Platform can be slow at times
  • The performance of campaigns has been poor in comparison to other DSP's we have used.
  • It did allow us to attribute our conversions better than most dsps
I feel that both MediaMath and TradeDesk, while not as pretty or user intuitive as DoubleClick just out perform Bid Manager in terms of performance, driving low CPA's and overall better support.
I think it is best suited to agencies selling media at a flat rate for brand awareness campaigns

DoubleClick Implementation

I would highly recommend asking clients to provide 3PAS tags or use an internal 3PAS
Change management was minimal - That more time is needed to migrate campaigns over to bid manager because of the lack of a bulk upload feature
