AdStage Overview

AdStage is an all-in-one solution for creating and managing cross-network pay-per-click (PPC) marketing campaigns, across Facebook, Twitter, Google AdWords, Bing, and LinkedIn Ads.

Bulk ad creation allows users to test multiple ad variations, with different headlines, descriptions, and images, and make bulk inline edits of poorly performing ads using AdStage’s performance tables.

AdStage includes both a global dashboard, which displays the performance of all accounts, and separate dashboards for each campaign, with visualizations of key metrics, and customizable date ranges for displayed data. Users can set automated performance alerts to notify them if campaigns are falling short of their preset performance targets.

Users are able to set their own timezone and schedule automated campaign actions, such as turning ads on or off at specific times, or increasing bids to reflect the highest-performing times of the day or week. AdStage includes prebuilt tasks for setting up automated optimization rules, schedules, and performance alerts. Users can also create their own optimization rules using IF/THEN conditional logic statements to set date and time for optimization scheduling, maximum bid amounts, and select which period to draw data from.

Conversion metrics can be tracked with native tools, the AdStage pixel, and through Google Analytics integration. AdStage can then produce both scheduled and custom reports, with pre-built templates included, such as account group and cross-campaign reports, which can be customized by network, and can be exported in both PDF and CSV formats.

The tool alone is worth the money, but their staff is what really keeps me commited without question to their company. They continue to improve the tool and ask for imput from their customer base every step of the way to help ensure they don't stray too far away from what makes them great.

Pros

AdStage is a great tool for high-end reports, detailed analysis of campaigns, and overcoming some of the automation shortcomings that Facebook has. I use it to create cross-channel reports that bring in data from Facebook ads, Adwords, and Google Analytics to paint a detailed picture of our results. I use automation to set up sequences of ads on social media or to rotate campaigns/ads to test results or balance ad spend better. Their support team is so good that it honestly feels like you're their only client and that has not changed as they've grown as a company over the last 2 years I've been working with them. She has been my rep since I've started, but any time someone else has stepped in if she's out, they've been just as great.

Cons

Because it's such a powerful tool, it does not come cheap.

Pros

I loved how keen the team was to ensure users were employing their software to its full capacity. The UX is super easy to read/interpret, and setting rules etc. is exceptionally easy and accessible.

Cons

There are some situations in which a rule will be triggered to run, but then you can't set a condition in which you can revert said rule - this would be incredibly helpful in the long-term automation process.

The global dashboard shows users the performance of all of their accounts in one place, and each campaign has its own dashboard, with customizable date ranges for data and metrics displayed in charts and tables.

Users can create automation rules to optimize their campaigns, using IF/THEN conditional statements (with drop-down menus and free text fields), to set date and time (schedule optimizations), maximum amounts, and use data from different periods.

Performance alerts notify users if they are surpassing or falling short of preset performance targets.

Users can schedule when automated campaign actions occur, such as turning off ads on weekends, or raising bids during the highest-performing times of day.
