Intro to Funnel

Funnel is a marketing analytics platform that simplifies data collection. Funnel replaces manual processes and spreadsheets with data integrations/pipelines from over 500 digital marketing and advertising data sources. Funnel's customers include ecommerce companies, media agencies, brands, b2b businesses, mobile apps and gaming companies.

Intro to Shape ADI

The ADI is a data management product suite made up of a two-way API and managed data warehouse with connectors to reporting tools used at agencies every day.

With the ADI as a data management foundation, agencies can build reliable, custom solutions with fewer (or no) engineers in less time.

Before trialing Funnel, you'll need to book a demo. After the demo and trial, prices are listed as follows:

Ad Network Connectors

Funnel connects within an amazing 500+ different marketing and sales data sources.

Shape is focused on data sources that represent the majority of PPC spend online. Those networks include:

  • Google Ads
  • YouTube Ads
  • Google's Display and Video 360
  • Bing Ads
  • Facebook Ads
  • Instagram Ads
  • Twitter Ads
  • LinkedIn Ads

The most notable difference between Funnel and Shape (when it comes to PPC related connectors) is that Funnel allows you to integrate with Google Analytics data through their software. Shape does not.

Maintenance

Funnel and Shape both offer fully maintained data pipelines. This means if an ad network makes a change to their API, both systems will auto update without your team having to make any changes to how your data is collected.

Shape also fully maintains the marketing data warehouse that comes as a part of the ADI offering.

Ability to Push Edits Back to PPC Ad Networks

Funnel is great at pulling data in from many different sources. Their data connectors are one way which means while data can flow to reports or BI tools, pushing that data back to ad platforms requires customers to complete additional engineering.

At Shape, our products allow users to pull data from and push data back to ad networks. We believe that every digital advertising team should be able to build their own custom tools and solutions to address their unique PPC needs. Push changes to bids, budgets, and statuses automatically based on custom rules and your unique best practices using Shape.

The Shape ADI is designed with this in mind. Lay the foundation for building custom solutions beyond reporting.

Are Professional Services like Consulting Included in Pricing?

Funnel offers dedicated success teams and support for their customers on enterprise plans over $999/month.

Beginning with Shape's Starter ADI plan ($499/month), we offer built-in consulting services as part of the pricing. Our engineering team can assist your team with needs such as project scoping and data requirements. Leverage our years of domain expertise to build your perfect PPC technology solution!
