Your spend is spread across different channels so a graph showing your cumulative ad spend for the month is actually quite cumbersome to put together. With Funnel you get it automatically and it is always up to date. Now you can see how your ad spend is trending against last month and where you are likely to end up for the month. This way you can take action right away if there is an issue.
Ad accounts are organized based on how the advertising channels see the world, not based on how you view your business. Therefore it’s really hard to see what is really going on. Not so anymore. In Funnel you create a structure based on how your business is set up with different views for different markets, brands or clients.
Ads channels report on conversions they have been involved in, but most businesses ultimately rely on Google Analytics to evaluate ads channels and campaigns. Funnel shows you Google Analytics transactions, goal completions and assists as well as ROI and customer aquisition costs for each ads channel and campaign.
Many advertisers compare a campaign's performance with that of other campaigns in that ads channel. However, what really matters is how the campaign stacks up against your best performing campaigns across all channels. Funnel has a view that shows you exactly this.
The weekly or monthly report. We all dread doing it. Not so any more. With Funnel you can create informative and beautiful reports with a few button clicks. Add some commentary or schedule them to be sent automatically.
When you manually export data you tend to do it infrequently and with a focus on high level data. As a result you seldomly have an up to date picture that allows you to spot and address problems. Also, when you do detect something, you cannot drill in to analyze it in detail. Funnel automatically synchronizes all your detailed data so that it is always up to date.
Great marketers are on top of how their advertising KPIs are performing and trending. To make that happens they set up dashboards and make sure they are always up to date. Funnel makes it easy to set up the dashboards you need and makes sure they are up to date with the latest data.
Even if you only sell in one or two markets, chances are you come across multiple currencies in your different ad accounts and Google Analytics setup. And when you do it is even harder to get an overview of your ad spend and performance. Funnel automatically converts all your spend data and analytics data to the same currency so that it is easy to compare and sum them.
Most businesses have a set of specific metrics that are unique to them. To ensure you are tracking the right metrics Funnel allows you to create custom metrics based on the data pulled from your ad platforms and Google Analytics. Your custom metrics can be used both for analysis and reporting, and enables you to set up Funnel so that it reflects what is important for your business.
Sometimes you want to manipulate your data more freely in a spreadsheet or enter it into another system. To facilitate this Funnel provides a flexible Excel export facility, allowing you to export your data whenever you need to.
Correctly and consistently tagging all your ads’ URLs is one of the hardest things for advertisers to get right and very time consuming to do manually. If this is not done correctly it is not possible to match ad spend with results in Google Analytics and track the performance of different advertising initiatives. Google Adwords traffic is already correctly connected with Google Analytics and Bing traffic is correctly tagged by Microsoft. To help further with this Funnel provides the ability to automatically tag your ads for other major advertising platforms, starting with Facebook. This way your ads will always be perfectly tagged, allowing you to track and compare campaign performance in Funnel.
One of the key purposes of Funnel is to get a complete picture of your advertising initiatives. For advertising platforms that we do not yet support you have the ability to create these platforms in Funnel and upload the data in a CSV file. This way you can get full coverage of all your advertising spend and the benefit of the services that Funnel provides such as structuring of you advertising data, integration with Google Analytics and currency conversion.
