For about 7 years, I worked with one of their direct competitors: MerchantAdvantage – http://merchantadvantage.com – If you are looking for a more hands on approach to data management for your online products, MA is much cheaper and in my opinion, more powerful. I left MA early in 2011 and they had a few new tools being released which are really powerful. One of them being Keyword Control. Just an amazing product which lets you create Google ads for all your products, on the fly. Google was extremely impressed with this product and mentioned how no one had developed anything like this using their API before.
Their core product is called Channel Management and you can find out more about it on their site.
If you would like to reach out and find out more about MA, give them a call at 305-895-9466 and ask for Tamara Walters. Her extension is 205. Mention that I sent you and she will take care of you. They can provide you with a live demo so you get a better understanding of the platform.
Now, Channel Advisor is great. Don’t get me wrong. The thing with them is that you are paying them to make all the decisions for you. They use historical data which they gather from other clients in your same industry to come up with a marketing strategy. Obviously, they are very successful so I am not taking anything away from them.
Hope this helps.
