How AdButler’s Solutions Helped

Smooth Brightcove Onboarding

The Hagerty team decided to onboard Brightcove as their native video player. Since they offer open-source software to their customers, a bit of tailoring was required.

Brightcove is open source, and hence integration required customization to run video ads on our video content through Brightcove. Rob (from AdButler) and the Brightcove team had a lot of calls to figure out everything - which was really helpful.

Campaign Trafficking and Targeting

Hagerty uses the campaign trafficking feature to run ads on their owned and operated websites and email newsletters. Since Hagerty runs both house ads and advertisers’ campaigns, the targeting feature helps them specify these ads based on various criteria (such as topic) without confusion.

In some special use cases, we wanted advertisers or our own house ads to target specific pages based on context or topic - the targeting feature has been helpful to align and add to line items that are more in adjacent categories.

Access to Documentation and Quick Support

The Hagerty team likes to refer to the documentation and help center articles when they have questions about some feature. And in case of other queries, AdButler’s dedicated support team is always available.

AdButler has really helpful documentation -  so there is a lot of self-service. So we don’t always have to rely on an agent to help us learn how to use something. And we have had questions; I feel like you guys have been really responsive (particularly Rob).
