Pros: I really like the trend data, reports, and most of all, benchmarking you can get by industry. It's great seeing how our account compares to others in our industry.

Cons: Was a little challenging to "customize" to suit our specific needs. If you have a very complex account it becomes less usable out of the box.

Overall: Loved the reports and benchmarking for ad performance!

Pros: As an agency that manages tens of thousands of dollars in media spend each month, we saw a need to use software to improve efficiency, and Wordsteam provides just that. The various features, such as the 20 minute work week, make campaign management a breeze and my team uses this data to dig into more granular campaign details each week. Highly recommend this for PPC beginners and pros.

Cons: It is not cheap, but if you use the software often and have enough media spend under management, the cost is more easily justified.

Overall: Improved my team's PPC management efficiency and that is crucial to our overall profitability.

Pros: It gives you instructions what to do and how to do it to make your ads visible. Suggestions are clear and execution is simple. Support is great! I learned a lot having meetings with rep. His patience and guidance are most valuable.

Cons: Some terms are not clear to me, what some features are, but I have to spend more time using the software.

Overall: Learned things I could not figure out myself. Google Ad Words is a vast territory.

I signed up for WordStream services to help ease the pain of learning how to do AdWords correctly.

Pros: 1. I love the fact we were able to connect our current Google Analytics account to WordStream. Most companies that offer same service will not allow you to connect your Google Analytics - this isn't good especially when you part from a company. Not with WordStream, our Analytics account will still be ours in case we decide to not renew.

2. Learning videos and a helping hand from my account manager. WordStream has tons of videos to show you what to do in case you get stuck.

Overall: Self taught and guidance from account manager. He is good at what he does and has a great personality.

Pros: This is a good software for those just getting their feet wet with pay-per-click ads. It can make calculating the best options for your campaign a lot easier. Especially if you've never fully been in AdWords before.

Overall: Helped with a new client's PPC campaign set up. This is a product, so they always want you to move up to the biggest and best platform. With a little bit of learning and knowledge, these campaigns can be adjusted manually.

Pros: Streamlines my AdWords management, saves me time, and automates the easy wins. The reporting feature is also excellent, showing the rolling CPA is helpful and helps demonstrate value to clients.

Cons: It's expensive, and there are a few features that would make this a more complete platform. And some of the more 'creative' recommendations start to become time-wasters rather than time-savers.

Overall: Save time, become more effective AND efficient in my PPC management, and demonstrate wins to clients.

Cons: I wish WordStream could audit my existing PPC landing pages and offer suggestions to make it better. Other than that, I can't fault the platform.

Overall: If you are involved in PPC, then WordStream is a must have. The benefits not only come from the software but also the people that work there. If you want to improve your PPC, then WordStream is a must.

Pros: Help in deciding the right steps to take to optimize my account. It is often hard to decide what to do when and wordstream helps eliminate that with helpful suggestions.

Cons: That it tries to get me to sign up for call tracking each 20 minute work week when we have our own fully implemented tracking that we are happy with via Callrail. It never feels like I complete my 20-minute workweek cause I get prompted for the call tracking. Need an option to opt out of that.

Overall: Help in creating a better quality score on Google Adwords

Finally! Software and support that teaches me how to get the most bang for my advertising buck.

Pros: I like being able to manage ads on all channels -- Google, Facebook, Bing, etc. -- from one central system. It makes it easier to compare them to one another, and make adjustments as needed.

Cons: Some functionality is only available on the underlying system (Google, Facebook) and requires me to go to those platforms to make certain changes.

Pros: The software is very intuitive and saves my team so much time by bringing insights right to the top and the 20 minute work week is awesome!

Cons: I don't know that there is anything I don't like. I guess it only works for Facebook if you're doing social media ads, but that's what we mostly do.

Overall: It's saved my team a lot of time. The copy ability is amazing and the ability to split ad groups without a huge messy project is fantastic.

Pros: That I have the ability to use the software in it's most simplified state (20 minute workweek) or dig in deeper to perform more powerful analysis. The software saves me hours upon hours of time per week.

Cons: I wish the software had the capability to analyze landing page quality scores and make very specific suggestions for improvement. In my mind this would complete the software and ensure it hits on all elements of an effective PPC marketing campaign.

Overall: Starting to lower PPC costs.

Pros: Easy to use. It turned the cumbersome task of improving your ads in Google Adwords dashboard from a 3 hours a week task to a 30 minutes a week task. Wordstream gives you specific items to focus on in order to improve your ads. There customer service is exceptional.

Cons: Unfortunately, adwords just wasn't a good lead generation tool for our industry. I don't know if there was anythign that Wordstream could have helped us with.

Cons: It seems expensive for what it is and the social integrations seem week enough that the team isn't using them.

Overall: We've saved time on our account management, but the biggest bonus is created performance on our client's accounts.

Pros: The software is very easy to use and the suggestions takes the guesswork out making costly, ineffective decisions. The 20 minute manager is a Huge Asset to the product and we are seeing a lot of cost savings and tremendous increased web traffic. We have over 15,000 keywords to manage and this product has drastically reduced our time consuming efforts. I wish I would have found this product years ago. We literally manage our Google, Bing and Facebook accounts from a single pane of glass. It's fair to say, we may have lost millions in potential revenue the past 5 years without this product. The best part, it's fun to use!

Overall: Increased web traffic and double & triple revenue increases

Wordstream was the best business decision we made all year.

Pros: Ease of use and training for newbies like us. Customer service is always there when we need them. They are easy to work with and taught us how to boost our appearance online. We were chasing our tails using AdWords before. We never got the same information twice from customer service. Wordstream has allowed us to concentrate our ads to our customers. We finally stopped receiving calls that were not related to our business!

Cons: If I have to name a con I guess it could be that it doesn't do it the work for us. The software is easy to use and we have not had any issues. If I HAD to come up with one thing I wish to change it would be for there to be an automatic saving and uploading of work done as I make changes. Because sometimes I forget to end my sessions with the upload changes now tab.

Very helpful, much easier to track performance.

Pros: Wordstream is incredibly useful for consolidating data across accounts and platforms into a single, easy to understand and navigate dashboard. Additionally, the insights that Wordstream pulls out of your campaign data and presents via the "20 Minute Work Week" can be super useful and time-saving.

Cons: As can be expected, not all insights/suggestions are useful or make sense for your business. For an experienced PPC campaign manager this might be obvious, but to someone new to PPC they might go ahead with all of Wordstream's advice.

Pros: The 20 minute work week has made my time navigating PPC menus infinitely more impactful. The Wordstream software allows me to optimize, add or delete features from each individual campaign quickly and efficiently.

I enjoy that Wordstream has the tools needed for not only Google's PPC but Bing and Facebook as well. This allows you to consolidate not only the campaign details but budgeting as well.

Setting up complex campaigns such as A/B testing, geotargeting and different landing pages is easy with Wordstream. This is normally a long and tedious process when done within the PPC providers built-in application.

Cons: The only negative I can think of is the lack of support for other platforms. Most marketers stick to Google and Facebook so most other platforms are generally a waste of time so this isn't a huge issue.

Overall: Wordstream allows my team to quickly plan, execute and manage PPC campaigns. From simple Facebook promotions to complex A/B testing Google AdWords campaigns, it's easy with Wordstream.

The 20 Minute Work Week is by far the greatest thing for people in charge of PPC ever!

Cons: I do wish we could add an additional one on one training hours, as opposed to packages. We have an awesome trainer and it would be nice to have a trainer work with us from the beginning of campaigns.

Overall: Ease of use, gives me more time to work on other aspects of my job and digital marketing. It is also a nice way to get the benefits of Google Adwords without using the software.

Pros: WordStream is great for small businesses, and really cuts down the time I spend on PPC. The customer service is awesome, and the user interface is clean and easy to use. I love that it syncs with AdWords, allowing me to quickly diagnose and implement changes to all my campaigns.

Cons: Not many complaints here. The only thing I've noticed is that some of the training materials, webinars, aren't as good as Google AdWords resources. Also, sometimes the recommended keywords I get are not related to my content. Usually I review carefully before adding them to a campaign. Similarly, the negative keyword tool sometimes suggests keywords that don't work with my content.

Overall: Less time spent on PPC, great consulting that helps me make important decisions about how the campaigns are run, and overall increased understanding of PPC.

Pros: The 20 minute workweek is helpful to get things going. The dashboard gives a nice overview of where things are headed. And the GUI is helpful because of the presentation of data. It's simple and has no clutter, where as Google is going in the opposite direction. Wordstream is extremely useful when optimising for clients with smaller budgets, but still need incremental improvements with only a small amount of time. Also - Wordstream is ideal for new colleagues to get the hang of doing AdWords. So, it's also some sort of e-learning environment. The focus on cutting costs and improving quality scores and CPA's is great. It's real easy to add negatives from the Query Stream to multiple ad groups at once. The software comes with some nifty features to easily see improvements that can be made. Finally, Wordstream is very actively improving the software and adding features on a almost weekly basis! It's moving towards display and social advertising more, which is important!

Cons: The 20 minute workweek becomes less helpful when optimising bigger, complex campaigns or already tightly managed campaigns at this moment. I also miss the option to segment data by conversion type for example. Or the compare different periods other than on the dashboard. So in some cases I need to go back to the Adwords GUI for that. Maybe Wordstream could add more features or specific reports to focus more on things that matter most when lowering CPA, cost in general or improving CTR.

Overall: A more pro-active workflow for smaller clients without blowing up the budget for managing them. Also a great environment for starting specialists to get to know adwords and how to focus on cutting costs and lowering CPA's.

Pros: It's very user-friendly and it saves our company a ton of admin time. We use it weekly for the "20-min work week" but having a dedicated account rep is an additional bonus.

Cons: The only con I can think of would be the cost, but I also think it is worth the price for the value you get from the service

Pros: It points out the most important areas to focus on in your Adwords or Bing account. It provides suggestions for new kewords and how to optimize your campaigns and ad groups.

Cons: We found that we were actually doing a great job with our Adwords account and the suggestions provided by Wordstream were not very relevant. I stopped using it after one month but was stuck in a 6-month contract. I quickly implemented the initial insight I gained and did get much more insight thereafter.

Overall: It provided some good initial insights, but after we got it all figured out there was no more value to us. I canceled after the first six month contract was up.

Pros: My account manager is very responsive, and acts on requests quickly. He's a big upgrade on the service I was getting from my previous firm.

Cons: Expertise beyond the core google adwords capability isn't quite what I had been pitched. They are great for Adwords, though.

WordStream has provided me with a quick and easy way to obtain all of the data I need to see

Pros: WS is the most user-friendly platform that I have seen. I am an intermediate user that needs to have the ability to understand how our client's campaigns are performing at a glance. Everything I need to be able to access quickly is right at my fingertips.

Cons: Continue to enhance the visual nature of the reporting - it is good now still, however, this is the one area I would like to see continue to evolve.

Cons: That I still need to use the Adwords interface. Everything can't be done in WordStream but they do walk you through some of things that need to be maintained on the Adword page.

Cons: I have had some issues with changes being rejected and getting errors when posting and not being able to resolve them on my own.

Overall: Saves me time and creates an easy to follow workflow.

Pros: I love the fact that everything is super simple to find. I dont have to go digging around to get the most important information..... and I love the fact that once a week I get to be completely lazy and use 20minute working week thing, its saves me so much time and helps makes the changes with the biggest impact.

Cons: I dont like that I have to leave the device report to adjust the bids... and I'd also prefer if I do the 20 minute working week daily?!

Overall: It takes the guesswork out of ad management, especially if you're stretched for time.

Pros: Once you have your basic PPC campaign(s) setup, WordStream Advisor will analyze everything and then make suggestions for budget changes, ad changes, keyword changes, ad set splitting and most importantly, negative keywords, on a weekly basis.

You can then review their suggestions and accept them or not.

Two big things that I have noticed is my "Google ad quality score" has risen across all my ads and my actual cost per click has decreased as well.

This software is very easy to use and also will work with your Bing and Facebook ads too.

You really can't go wrong with this software if you run PPC ads on Google.

Overall: 1st off Wordstream advisor saves me and my team a ton of time trying to figure out how to optimize our PPC campaigns.

We manage multiple PPC campaigns for small business owners (we are an agency) and any tool that saves us time which saves us money, and we appreciate that.

We will use this software as long as we manage PPC campaigns.

It is a no-brainer.

My team & I are very skeptical with any software that we purchase and use, having been burned numerous times by over-hyped promises on software.

To be honest, I can't really find anything that I dislike about WordStream Advisor.

It does it's job, is easy to use & saves me and my clients money and headaches.

Pros: WordStream opened up an entire new business opportunity to me. Without it I wouldn't have the time or inclination to sell PPC management services on a large scale. Now I can offer AdWords, Bing and Facebook ads as an intro or add-on service for my clients. Without needing additional resources. WordStream changed my business.

Cons: The one area I would really like to see improvement in the software is in the reporting functionality. The current reports are a good start but fall short when it comes to what I need to provide my clients. I recently attended a live WordStream event in conjunction with Google and spoke with a team member who is actually working on new reporting features. What he could tell me is exactly what I've been looking for. Needless to say I'm very excited about the upcoming release.

Overall: The 20-Minute Workweek guidance has been invaluable to me. I was a novice at AdWords management when I began using WordStream but I was quickly able to make some dramatic improvements for a client which allowed me to open that service to several other clients. WordStream changed my business.

Pros: I want to say everything. I was very new to PPC when our company signed on with WordStream, but the tool makes it so simple to just plug in and go. That, combined with a very knowledgeable customer support rep, makes planning a PPC campaign a lot easier. I've been able to see where we were overspending and I've been able to really optimize to drive traffic/ get our customers quality leads. WordStream has saved me so much time so far and I believe our clients will continue to see the value it provides.

Cons: I really don't have any complaints. Everything on the backend is never pushed lived until you actually click the button to push it live. I will build out a full campaign and then completely forget to push the button. It'd be cool if there was a pop-up reminder or something along those lines.

Pros: Personalized training, personal consultant that manages your account, user-friendly interface, and WordStream allows even the novice to be an expert at AdWords and get results FAST! The intuitive 20-Minute Work Week tool really guides you toward making the right decisions and changes to save your business money, but without sacrificing any potential business.

Cons: Would prefer 2-3 more individual training sessions at the novice/beginner level. Maybe provide a short survey that can "spot" the beginners, so you know where to start with them. Lots of details that can be overwhelming at first and difficult to know where to start on an existing account that has been managed already by an agency. Better to have a plan to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run, so to speak.

Overall: Training, refinement of our AdWords account, and more business

Pros: The platform is easy to use and has a lot of great features that help to keep track of Facebook, Google, and Bing Ads through some easy to understand visuals. Phone tracking was easy to setup and helps us better understand the value of our ads for the sales that don't take place directly online. There is a well documented guide with videos that help explain all the features so questions are easily answered.

Cons: A feature that I think would push help the Wordstream Advisor to the next level would be a way to track your total sales within the app. This would help out our company see the relationships that might be missed between all the phone sales and impressions that don't get tracked through the marketing platforms.

Overall: This is the best way yet we have found to track our phone sales. Tracking all the platforms we use to advertise in one place also helps us better digest the copious amount of information that comes with internet marketing.

Pros: We switched from paying a consultant to managing our Adwords account oursleves along with the help of Wordstream. Wordstream breaks down PPC data making it manageable and easy to understand. I feel I can make decisions based on data to improve our account now where as before it was very hard to understand how to use the Adwords platform. We've brought our cost per target lead down by 42% in as little as 3 months managing ourselves with Wordstream!!

I've learned a lot from our consultant at Wordstream and the educational materials provided by Wordstream are very useful!!

So glad we made this switch!

Cons: The automated suggestions are not always perfect in the 20 minute work week, but I do believe these have helped us bring costs down significantly.

Overall: Tons of cost savings, better leads, and more meetings. Feeling I can now understand Adwords data insights and take action on those insights.

Pros: As a one-person marketing agency, I always envisioned harnessing a software that allowed me to get into the weeds of my client's adwords accounts easily, keep me updated on their budgets, and allow me to do audits and account re-structures quickly. WordStream is just that. I love the 20 minute work week, as it allows my to get all my account maintenance out of the way for the week on Sunday/Monday and I have the rest of the week free for meetings, building new campaigns and anything else that pop's up mid-week. It's also made upsells to clients on Facebook ads very easy as the integration is very simple/easy.

Cons: I mean, it's not perfect. There's some work flows that you need to get used to, but in the end I feel like I've gotten more than fair value for my subscription fee.

My experience with Wordstream advisor has been great and has made managing time and accounts easier.

Cons: I do not like that there is no history of past adjustments made to accounts from the software. It would extremely helpful to have them listed out and put them in order of accounts.

Cons: Facebook support was poor but that has been upgraded recently. The ad performance reporting is not highly customisable.

Pros: The weekly manager. At least once a week I can sit down, go over the recommendations, choose what I want to do and then click on it. There are recommendations you can choose to accept or turn it down. Once learned it is very easy to maintain.

Cons: A lot of information to go over and learn. Once you go over it and speak to a customer rep, tech it starts to make sense. There are still some things I haven't been able to go through. Once I have more time this winter I hope to become more proficient.

Pros: - 20 minute work week tool, makes adding new keywords and negatives easy as well as showing the impact in terms of expected increase in traffic and money saved

Cons: - Search manager tool a little clunky and sometimes slower to work within this in comparison to AdWords Editor or AdWords interface

Pros: Simple easy to use. Easy to read layouts and report structures. weekly summary opportunities focus feature is a good idea but becomes redundant after a period of 3 months as you would likely be on top of the bulk work getting your advertising inline with desired outcomes.

Cons: Now obsolete as Googles new Adwords features (which is free) have significantly more details and drilling data than Wordstream can compete with.
Now in 2017 wordstream is not worth any money as it cannot provide any further benefit than the newer Adwords interface tools.

Also customer support is a real problem when you have any issue with software or billing. They simply will not respond to you- that means never.

Customer support is only availiable for purchasing .

Overall: Intially quick wins to focusing ad's on google to targeted audience but it did not reduce our ad spend. It targeted potential customers manipulating our ad strategy more directly but it lead to increasing spend without the corresponding conversion rate improvement.

Pros: The insights it provides seem less likely to just generate clicks, and more likely to generate conversions (sales). It's incredibly easy to see where you stand among competitors, and let's you set your expectations accordingly (i.e. it helps reign in your client's wants).

Reporting is easy, and there's not a lot of annoying in-app upsell that so many software systems hook you in with, but only deliver for a premium. People are tired of that.

Support is seriously A-Team (Greg Herrmann knows everything, has every answer. Greg Herrmann for president).

Cons: Would love shopping ads (PLAs), remarketing, display ads, etc. Copying across accounts would be great, too, but whatever I've had any difficulty with Greg Herrmann has provided some kind of a solution for. Support!

Overall: Makes PPC provable to my clients, and makes taking action often, easy.

Pros: Very intuitive product, makes a lot of sense and can save time. Great customer service and sales team to walk through any questions or concerns.

Cons: This product at the time did not have any tools for social media and was only geared for Google Adwords that didn't help me and the time saved on Google Adwords was good but not enough to justify the very high price.

Overall: Helped my Adwords management

Pros: Nice dashboard, good looking layout. It connects easily with Adwords so you can download and upload just fine.

Cons: As an agency, if the ad spend increases the price of Wordstream skyrockets and it's definitely NOT worth the price. There is no reason it should get SOOOOOO expensive when it doesn't do anything different. 6 month contract was a BIG mistake. Really regret signing up with them. Download Adwords Editor and learn how to use it on Youtube and you'll be way ahead. You can hire someone to set up reports for you in Adwords or there are lots of reporting tools that do a better job at a fraction of the price.

Overall: We optimized one campaign and saw some improvement. But again, not worth the crazy expense. Really unhappy with the price gouging and 6 month contract.

After only a week using Wordstream, my confidence in using Adwords has skyrocketed.

Overall: It allowed me to do my work with Adwords and be successful while at the same time, teaching and improving skills that I may not have been able to as adequately or as quickly as I was by using Wordstream!

Pros: The friendly user interface that guides those who can't keep up with constantly changing and increasingly difficult ad systems. It used to be that you'd bid 5 cents on a broad keyword and get 100% of the clicks. Now the complexity either needs a dedicated person to work on it, or a system that simplifies it, like Wordstream

Cons: I would hope for more integration with Facebook ads, as they've been around long enough that we should have full utilization within the software

Overall: Ease of use across several ad platforms, the '20 minute work week' is great

Cons: No call tracking for U.K. It is a shame that they do not support call tracking. They do in other countries so hopefully that will come. With that it would be a perfect solution

Pros: Wordstream identifies areas of opportunity as well as keywords that are inefficient. I have seen several client accounts increase in performance - whether that is CTR or conversions.

Cons: Wordstream doesn't yet factor in different audience targeting available in AdWords - so there is still some toggling between the two platforms.

Overall: Time saving, efficiency, improved campaign performance.

Word Stream has saved me a significant amount of time in managing our client's adwords accounts.

Pros: The 20 minute work week provides insights and suggestions of optimization tactics that I wouldn't have considered on my own which is a tremendous help in maximizing our client's budgets and increasing their campaign performance.

Cons: In the future I hope to see an integration of all Google products! It would be ideal to stay within one platform to manage search, display, and YouTube campaigns.

Overall: Huge time saver, in depth optimization tactics and suggestions, super easy to use!

Pros: Wordstream saves me time and gives a great quality score, keyword and account optimisation suggestions. The "Query Stream" feature show's the number of queries per ad group up front, saving you from having to go through each ad group individually.

Cons: When it comes to the latest features, there seems to be a bigger drive behind social features with a few search updates here and there. There are no features for remarketing audience bid adjustments. Not being able to work with labels in Wordstream is about one of the bigger reasons I have to juggle between Adwords & Wordstream ux's.

Cons: The reporting tool is limited to two types of reports - while they are super helpful, that could be expanded to be a more user-friendly version of AdWords reporting.

Pros: Absolutely the best customer support and training that I've ever experienced from a software company. It's easy to use and understand and has nice reporting features that are also easy to customize.

Cons: It's pricey for small firms with few accounts -- but makes sense if you're managing multiple clients and/or ad platforms.

Overall: It has saved time and simplified the process of managing our accounts. The reports are informative, but simple for the client to understand. Training features have also been helpful.

I use this software to help with my small business and have had great luck.

Cons: Not much to say that I don't like. If I was to say anything it would be about Facebook and how it relates to wordstream and functionality. Or maybe I just need to learn more about Facebook.

Pros: Most of all, I enjoy working with the people at WordStream. We set up weekly reports, but it is the team that I have in place that help cidentify opportunities for growth. They proactively customize reporting to fit the needs of the company.

Cons: Sometimes reports can be lengthy and some data is not relevant to our current initiatives. Although this is sometimes a problem, I can always talk to my team at WordStream and customize the report for granular data that is highly relevant to our goals.

Very positive, it has managed to streamline processes for our PPC department.

Pros: The 20 minute work week is great. We like to make sure that all of our accounts get attention and this is the perfect way to do it - sure there are some suggestions that aren't right but that's what the feedback tool is for.

Cons: in 20 minute work week when creating new ad groups it would be ideal if we could add more than a single add group at a time it would perfect this process

Overall: The ease of being able to manage, maintain and optimise all of our accounts evenly. We base our clients accounts on tiered package so sometimes the smaller accounts don't get the attention they deserve, where as WordStream helps us give the same amount of love and attention to ALL accounts and that is important to us.

Seamless, helpful and easy to use.

Pros: The 20 minute work week tool is great for quick maintenance items. The performance grader report helps to dig a little deeper into best practices and helps me to spot areas of improvement that I can take care of quickly. The many keyword tools available are great at helping me to make large scale changes quickly and I can review my changes before posting them to AdWords. Call tracking and keyword level call tracking are a must for reporting new leads to my law firm clients. I also utilize the landing page builder and contact forms with great results. Working with an account rep who has experience with my target clientele has been a tremendous benefit to my company's growth. Great looking white label reports that I can customize for each of my clients communication styles makes my weekly phone calls that much better!

Cons: There are still a handful of features to be added into Wordstream that I think would be nice. Support for shopping, display and YouTube campaigns will be great once they are added.

Overall: Increased quality of work!

Wordstream is a must-have for anyone running an Adwords campaign.
