AdStage overview

What is AdStage?

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.

Cons
- Does not include integration lead sources like Call rail and Unbounce - Personalize table and create charts from Google sheets are not available - Bit Pricey

Response from AdStage


Thanks for using AdStage and also for the feedback! Love that you find it easy to use, because we are on a mission to make it easy for marketers to access powerful amounts of data! With our custom conversion api you can pump in conversions from outside sources like callrail and unbounce. We've also recently lowered all our prices (some products as low as $29/month) and now have a month to month option. We are regularly releasing new features and integrations and love learning what customers need. Thanks again for the feedback!

Their customer support is hands down the best, they always respond so quickly and help me with my issues.

Pros
AdStage connects with most major advertising platforms so you can easily see all your client ad spend in one place. Saves me so much time pulling weekly reports!

Cons
There is no connection set up between AdStage and LinkedIn Lead Generation forms which is an issue because I use Lead Gen forms for a lot of clients.

Benefits

Users can create reports from pre-built templates, including account group and cross-campaign reports, and customize them by network. Reports can be exported as PDFs and CSVs.

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.
