    Shortstack is a great product. I've been using it for at least the last three years consistently for all of my clients' Facebook promotions. I'll admit, we don't use it as much as we did when like-gating was available, but there are other reasons to use it. However, it's not going to be an easy one to learn to use if you're not digital savvy already.

    Pros : - Works with Facebook and Instagram. You can run contests on Facebook to gather email addresses as entry, or photos, or other data. - Easy to ask for permission to add email address to your existing databases, in compliance with privacy laws (in Canada at least). - Very customizeable with templates and the ability to change out all colours & pictures to fit your brand. - Ability to copy a previously used promotion and simply update for next one, which is a great time saver. - Ability to have Instagram entries auto-populated based on brand hashtag. - Ability to import names for a Like & Comment contest on Facebook. - Built in random draw generator. - Ability to assign referral points for recruiting friends to promotion. - Ability to gate based on required information, such as an email, i.e. you can't have the ebook/coupon until you put in an email. - Ability to change CSS codes if you know how. - Customer service is pretty good online. - Ability to embed a promotion on your website. - Ability to limit who can see the entry form (on Facebook at least, by country).

    Cons : - Like & Comment import only imports from one post, so if you've collected comments on multiple posts, over a week, you have to import several times and consolidate into one database, at which point you can't use their random draw function, but have to resort to random.org. - I personally found it very overwhelming to learn to use. Almost every campaign I learn something new to do, so I've learned to use it bit by bit over three years to get pretty decent looking promotions, in conjunction with a graphic designer. - There have been glitches...my last promotion just disappeared one week before completion, after three weeks of no issues. They were able to help me get it back without any lost data, just a day or so of entries.

    Marin Software is one of the best, if not the best, paid search management platforms. It allows you to do a multitude of paid search functions easily and fast. It allows you to take the general functions of Google Adwords and Bing Ads UI and expand them out. You can create ad copy test, launch optimizations in the future, it has a bid management tool, you can easily optimize keywords/ad groups/campaigns, and much more. Marin Software also has the ability for automated reporting. Not only is this feature super helpful for end of the month reporting, but the reports are already client ready and don't need adjustments. This is very rare for paid search management platforms.

    Pros :

    • Marin Software has a lot more pros than cons. First off, they have a very easy to use platform that with a little training you can master.
    • If you have any questions, Marin Software has a wonderful customer support team that will answer any of your questions.
    • Marin Software also has an awesome ad platform that makes it very easy to make ad copy changes as well as run A/B tests.
    • In terms of optimizations, this is a very helpful feature.
    • You can make large-scale changes across accounts, campaigns, ad groups, keywords, and even engines.
    • Marin Software allows the option for custom dimensions which allows you to filter your data in various ways to get different results.
    • This is very helpful if you run multiple accounts and is a feature that the engine UIs do not have.

    Cons :

    • Although the bidding function is very useful, it is not helpful for large or more complex formulas.
    • If you need a platform that is going to excel at bidding changes, there are quite a few other options. Marin Software can also sometimes take a while to sync or send updates to the engines.
    • The UI can lag at times.
    • They do not have a lot in terms of KPI report, such as budget pacing.
    • They also don't accept as many outside vendors as other platforms do.
    • Lastly, the account representative is not a good reflection on the company. They aren't very helpful in terms of questions.
    • It seems like their main goal is selling you the product and then making sure you stay with it when your contract is up.

    While not perfect, ShortStack is one of the best Facebook app creators out there. And while they have a few omissions, like the lack of an Etsy shop template, they make up for it in their support, number of features, and ease of use.

    Marin Use Cases and Deployment ScopeMarin was used at my old job at MediaCom across all paid search teams of my client. It helped us manage the large amount of keywords and bids and easily pull pacing reports to present to the client.
