I'm looking for a company that provides a software or software as a service product that saves time in the compilation and reporting of pay-per-click results across Google and Bing.
Basically we run a lot of pay-per-click reports for clients and do everything in Excel currently after exporting the raw report data directly from each client's pay-per-click account.
I've investigated firms like these (SearchForce, Marin, Acquisio, Clickable, ClickEquations) they are all quite expensive with minimum monthly charges with each of them at around $5,000 per month. They all charge typically 5% of the advertising spend to use their service.
Does anyone know of other solutions I should investigate to do reports instead of continuing to use Excel. I would highly prefer a fixed monthly price instead of a percentage of advertising spend - I really can't stand that pricing model - it really doesn't fit with how we charge clients for our pay-per-click management services.
