I am in the same boat as a lot of you guys. My company does maybe 40-75k and its hard to give up half of your gross income, just to use a tool.
On the other hand, using the tool and using technology to be more efficient is the thing that will make us grow. So its kind of a growth point that I am sure agencies run into whenever they get beyond being "small" but definitely couldn't be considered "big"
At this point I have talked to just about everybody, but I can't quite get past paying 5% of the adspend at lower levels. I'm testing out clicksweeper.com because its barrier to entry is much less than a lot of other tools, and acquisio starting at 1000 per month is looking better the more tools I look at.
On the pure reporting side, did anyone find a tool that makes it easy to pull google/bing/facebook reports into one place and email reports weekly or monthly? That would be a real good thing for us.
