Let's get in touch

Why G2 reviews matter a lot

G2 is a well-known peer-review website that works like a platform for software comparison. It is specifically designed to aggregate the reviews from customers directly which makes this space especially valuable in case you hunt for genuine and unbiased customer opinions. Based on these opinions and the rating system G2 evaluates the software providers and particular functionalities of their product. 

Who are these opinions valuable to? Entrepreneurs, managers, advertisers, publishers, investors - everyone who uses professional software for marketing, advertising, or project management can read the reviews and compare the software options (by particular feature including). This facilitates decision-making as reading an insider’s opinion saves many entrepreneurs from testing products themselves.

On top of this, every quarter G2 also defines the top-performing software solutions across every industry while taking into account the customer satisfaction rate and market presence of every solution.

As seen from the very start, campaign dashboard and optimization are among the most outstanding features of SmartyAds DSP. The reach is also a strong capacity of SmartyAds DSP as it was rated higher than 9 (just like the second alternative in the grid whose rating is based on a slightly bigger number of responses).

The dashboard is really very user-friendly and easy to grasp while campaign optimization is built on the ML and AL algorithms. With such features as the CPM optimizer the advertiser never overpays for the impression as the bid for it always stays optimal. Meanwhile, the click booster makes the ad more clickable by selecting and prioritizing only those sources that work best for the advertiser. The reach on DSP is represented by the broad range of verticals and inventories, including in-app, mobile web, desktop, and CTV.

Just like the last time, the G2 defined that customers give SmartyAds DSP high rates when it comes to brand safety and fraud protection. This is because we collaborate with traffic safety providers such as e.g Pixalate and Protected Media and have our own people monitoring and preventing threats. Probably the most important thing we do for safety and quality of traffic is partnering with renowned publishers whose inventory is proven, safe, and well-performing (e.g Xiaomi, Meitu, KaiOs, Reface, etc.)

In addition to this, SmartyAds has a convenient budget distribution mechanism and creative optimization features as well as rich media capabilities. In-app ads are also rated high since our platform has a wide range of trending in-app and mobile ad formats including rewarded video and playable.
