Key benefits of Genius Monkey

Colorado State University Online wanted to increase student enrollment and shrink their path to conversion timeline. CSU online specifically caters to online and hybrid students, and finding the right student for the right program requires targeting capabilities that go beyond anything they can manage on their own. So they reached out to Genius Monkey’s programmatic platform to help achieve their goals and immediately saw incredible results!

- The Arizona Coyotes NHL team was somewhat satisfied with their programmatic efforts of two existing platforms before experimenting with Genius Monkey. However, once Genius Monkey was able to quickly drive an astounding 572% return on ad spend, a 200-300% higher ROAS than achieved by the other two existing programmatic platforms, they quickly saw what they had been missing out on. Needless to say, the Coyotes swiftly shifted budget over to boost GM efforts.

- After two years of consistently running with Genius Monkey, Liberty Buick is now paying $2 per site user, $1 per site session and $71 per lead. That is a 54% decrease in cost per lead from where they were prior to GM. Not only did their cost per lead go down, total leads also increased from a monthly average of 500 to over 1200. Since then, Liberty Buick has gone on to become the Buick Dealer of the year and the #1 Buick volume dealer in the U.S.

The team we work with is top notch. They are passionate about their work and make me feel special as a client. I know they're always working hard behind the scenes to ensure we're putting our best foot forward to introduce new prospective students to our institution.

Pros

I have been working with the Genius Monkey team and using their software for about 18 months. I have consistently been blown away by the results we achieve and their reporting capabilities give us insights we can't achieve with anyone else. We've run head to head tests only to secure more funding to always run media through Genius Monkey. The access we have to the data within their software helps us gauge our performance and determine if we need new creative, additional channels, optimizations across audiences, or any other changes.

Cons

The interface isn't the most beautiful one out there, and there's no easy way to see the creative when you're viewing the results so you have to make sure your naming conventions are very clear. Other than that, it really meets all of our needs.

Response from Genius Monkey

Thank you Katie, you have been a great partner! We do appreciate your feedback on not being able to easily see the creative and you will be happy to know that is a feature that will be rolled out into the dashboard soon.

Overall experience has been great. they have been a great partner for both us and our clients for many years. I feel they truly care about our business, and our client's business and do their best to deliver quality results and a quality account management experience.

Pros

The Genius Monkey Software is easy to use, and easy to get set up. The Genius Monkey team is responsive and once we send them all of our information, we are up and running quickly. Their reporting has gotten so much better of the years, and their online dashboard allows myself and our clients easy access to live results... And unique to other digital companies, their numbers are always right. Great for mass brand awareness campaign and tons of impressions with a low CPM and CPC.

Cons

Premium impressions are not a strength of this software.

Our experience with the team at Genius Monkey has been incredible. They are extremely responsive and solution-oriented.

Pros

There a many Pros to Genius Monkey. First off you only pay for clicks NOT impressions. Secondly, they only target those who are "in-market" thus staying in front of the middle to bottom-funnel leads. They also have a much greater inventory of ad networks and databases, so you are not limited to the handful that most have to use. Finally, the ability to see the customer journey from the first touch to final conversion allows us to manage our client's campaigns with confidence.

Cons

Hard to find anything here but maybe a more user-friendly Customer Journey report for the clients to see would be nice.

The best marketing partner I’ve worked with in my 10 years of digital marketing experience.

The best marketing partner I’ve worked with in my 10 years of digital marketing experience.

Pros

The ability to target an intended audience and place the most targeted impressions possible for the budget.

Cons

It’s complexity requires business owners (purchasers) to have more than a basic level of customer attribution modeling to understand the full value. However, even when using last click attribution Genius Monkey analytics outperform the competition.
