Ad Spy Pro Description

AdSpyPro is a self-hosted pay per click competitive intelligence software application developed by Jean-Philippe Schoeffel. Unlike other similar applications which are subscription-based and controlled by a third party, AdSpyPro is a one-time purchase which is fully controlled by the user. AdSpyPro's primary competitors are subscription-based applications such as SpyFu, KeywordSpy and Hexatrack in which all data is stored on the company's servers.

Ad Spy Pro Detailed Overview

If you are a beginning pay per click marketer or even if you are more experienced, one of the most important things that you can do is to get your market research correct from the very beginning. Of course, this can be done manually by searching the Internet for high demand markets and keywords, but without sufficient experience, this can lead to subpar results. One of the easiest ways around this problem is to make use of “spying tools” such as AdSpyPro. Programs like Jean-Philippe Schoeffel’s AdSpyPro give you the ability to figure out what is working in the marketplace by spying on existing campaigns and keywords that are already being used successfully by other affiliates. In this brief review, we will take a look at AdSpyPro and find out if it is something that you should consider using in your pay per click marketing business.

What is AdSpyPro and how does it work?

Like other competitive intelligence tools, AdSpyPro gives you to the ability to examine keywords and ad copy that your competitors are using prior to launching a campaign. The basic principle behind this is that if a competitor is running a campaign with a certain keywords and ad copy for very long period of time, then it is likely to be profitable. After all, no one would intentionally run a campaign at a loss for a very long period of time.

The major difference between AdSpyPro and other subscription-based applications, such as SpyFu, KeywordSpy and Hexatrack is that the data is stored on your own server. One of the major criticisms of other spying tools is that the data is potentially at risk of being compromised since it does not reside on your own server.

In addition to being self hosted, AdSpyPro also offers a fairly intuitive user interface. Although the initial installation of the program can be somewhat technical for a newbie, the help documentation is thorough enough to guide most people through the process successfully. Some of the limitations of the program are that it is not able to track data from international campaigns, it is not able to track cloaked or Iframed pages that affiliates might be using and lastly, it does not offer data analysis for Google AdWords campaigns.

How much does AdSpyPro cost?

Unlike membership sites that can cost upwards of $90 per month, AdSpyPro is available for a one-time purchase fee of $27. The software is available for download immediately after purchase and with a reasonable amount of technical skill, a new user could be up and running with AdSpyPro in less than 30 minutes.

In summary, spying tools such as AdSpyPro can be very beneficial if used correctly. Keep in mind that they are merely a tool and will only be helpful in solving the question of what is likely to be a profitable market. There are many more challenges you will face as an affiliate marketer including the ability to create high quality websites with compelling content for your users.

It's an Awesome Product

The tool is not recommended for those who know a little about technical stuff because this tool is very technical in my opinion. But for you who already know the technical stuff needed, then you will love this tool because it is pretty cheap and can do it's job very well. This is the greatest tool for market analysis. It has a great GUI and does exactly what you need it to. This may not be the greatest application for a novice computer user, but if you can manage to get it on your computer and get the gist of it, it will benefit you very much

Pretty good but expensive

I installed this program in less than an hour and it works very well. The results are pretty good because I know information about the keywords and strategy from my competitors!

The software is not complicated (at least not for me) and the information is really useful. The only issue with this program is because it is a little expensive but is legit and worth money.

A little difficult but good

First of all this program is great! Only it's a little expensive and I had some small problems installing it on my browser, I spent some time keeping the information up to date, but in the end I installed it and it worked perfectly, so I think it is well worth it.

So go and try it!

This Software is Pretty Good

Spying on your competition is a good thing because you will know what keywords and strategy your competitor takes and this is what As Spy Pro is all about. The tool is not recommended for those who know a little about technical stuff because this tool is very technical in my opinion. But for you who already know the technical stuff needed, then you will love this tool because it is pretty cheap and can do it's job very well.

Nice ad spying tool

Spying on your competition is a good thing because you will know what keywords and strategy your competitor takes and this is what As Spy Pro is all about.

But for you who already know the technical stuff needed, then you will love this tool because it is pretty cheap and can do it's job very well.

Overall I really like this tool and one of the best “Spying” tools that I ever tried, don’t let the technical stuff drive you away.

This Software is Pretty Good

Firstly, this program is legit. I know you might be thinking "Wow, this is really expensive", but unlike the competitors, or at least the ones I have experience with, this works, and there is only a one time fee. After faltering and deciding to buy it I was more than happy. This is the greatest tool for market analysis. It has a great GUI and does exactly what you need it to. This may not be the greatest application for a novice computer user, but if you can manage to get it on your computer and get the gist of it, it will benefit you very much.

Difficult, but Productive!

Personally, since I know a large amount about computers, and databases, the setup, and the actual exercise of the product was simple for me. However, if you're new to "ad spying" then the product will be a little difficult to use at first glance.

This is very useful for finding keywords to help get your campaign more views, hits, and clicks. With one click and a few words typed, the intuitive program will graph out keywords and data information about some of the most successful campaigns.

If you are trying to get keywords from major companies known worldwide, it will not be possible. Most of the websites have built in E-Shields which prevent these type of programs from revealing their secrets.

AdSpyPro was a cheap, and great purchase for me, it helped get my blogging website a view more views, and my campaign I am attempting to get up and running a few more hits within the first few hours of use.

Ad Spy Pro

The software is somewhat technical and requires some technical knowledge while installing, however once installed this is one of the best market analyzer tools I have ever seen. The wonderful thing about this tool is it's interface and it's functionality. By just a click of a button it will collect the comprehensive data from your competitor’s campaigns and presents the information in a graphical format and using that data you can steal your Competitor’s money making keywords. Another great aspect of this software is that you can instantly track down the trend of the market for more than 5 years and using that information you can track down the successful keywords. I use this tool to analyze my competitor's keywords as well as their campaign trends before investing or creating a new campaign. This not only helps me to save my money but also helps me to know the latest keywords. After using this tool I nearly saved around 150 $ per campaign and now I have CTR rates up to 12 % and my website traffic as well as my sales improved dramatically. I highly recommend this tool to anyone before creating a campaign for a niche so that you can save a lot of time and money.

Saved me in my noob times

This was a lifesaver when I was a newbie to his whole IM concept! as I was starting out I tried ppc and lost like at least $3000 but this tool came along and helped me a lot.

IT WASN'T EASY:

If you are a newbie marketer... then you will have a little bit of trouble during the setup as this isn't a desktop tool and requires a online server host. I personally struggled with it for weeks and had to hire a freelancer for $5 to do it. I suggest you do that as it's cheap and you can be sure that everything has been done right.

A Great Tool For Spying:

It's ability to get really old data(as old as 5 years) really fascinated me and it also saved me cash on my campaigns as it instantly sorts out profitable and non-profitable campaigns!

Conclusion:

Its a great tool for spying on competition and a must have for those who market using adwords!

Great and cheap

I tried this program a couple of months back mainly due to it's cheap price. You don't need to sign to a membership and pay every month to use this program and a one-time payment of about $30 is quite cheap for the services the program provides. And so, I bought it. I had small problems with the installation but with the help of my brother, we succeeded in installing the program in my browser. From there, the software showed it's true abilities. I love how you can scan the adwords campaigns of other successful people and find what their best and most selling keywords are and then use them for yourself. By monitoring the campaigns of other successful folk and using that information for your own campaign you can boost your earnings significantly as it did happen with me. The program absolutely does what it promises to do and for such a nice price, I can't help myself but recommend it to anyone who would need similar services. The only problem was the installation but even if you don't have a friend to help, you can always contact Mr. Schoeffel and ask him for advice.

Ad Spy Pro

My first impressions with Ad Spy Pro was that not only was it a bit expensive, but I also found that it was very hard to install in my browser and it had some compatibility issues as well. But once this program started working, it was well worth the price. It perfectly monitored all the competitor;s ad campaigns that were competing with my product. With that information I was able to set better competitive ads and get more sales.

Spy your competitors

I bought this software for around 48 $ in a pre sale offer and I am extremely happy with this software. I found this really helpful and it removes a lot of guesswork which is needed for ADwords campaigns. The only thing that I really hate about this product is that the Code (PHP Script) is very hard to install in your web server and moreover it had some compatibility issues with my browsers. Apart from that I just love everything about this neat little software. It scans and analyzes your competitor's Adwords campaigns and extracts the hot selling keywords and backlink Urls. This can be very helpful if you want to understand the core concept of your competitor’s success. The interface is simple and once you have the exact idea of your competitor's campaign keywords you can use the same keywords on your Adwords campaigns and it works really well. It saved a lot of time and effort for me to search countless keywords with little success. Now I just fire up this software and analyze my competition on the particular niche and copy the exact same keywords to my campaigns. My conversion rates have increased by 18 % and my website traffic by 21 %. Highly recommended.

A bit expensive but does it's job

Well besides the headache it gave me trying to install the thing I have to say it's an pretty interesting software. Does it do it's job? Yes. Can it do it better? Definitely. I think that the $60 price tag was a bit much, there are competitive software that do the same thing that run in the 30-35 range. There could be easier ways to get the same information on pay per click programs, but Ad spy Pro does do what it claims to be able to do, so you can't really complain much about it. I'll give it a C, mainly for it's installation "issues".

Good - but costly!

Ad Spy Pro does what it says on the tin, from personal experience I have never had any problems! Since downloading Ad Spy Pro the only problem I had was in the installation. I had no previous experience when I had began installing the program, and I had to get a friend to help me; however, on the upside I liked how all the data that I searched for was stored on my own server, this gave me more power of the control of the data. Overall the price is around $30, but all-in-all it is well worth it!

Good protection at a price

It's a good product, does the job you want it to. I haven't had any pop ups or virus scares since the download. A few bad things for it though are the price, around $30 is too expensive considering there are products out there that nearly do the same for free. Also navigating around was a bit difficult with the program. It took a while to get used to it. Also the installation was a pain; it read error the first time but then I re installed it and worked fine.

Difficult but good

I very much like the program itself, having it scan for the best keywords for marketing purposes! There are a few downsides though, one thing is the cost. I don't like to pay money for things I can do myself, but since this was only 27$, I can not complain because it works perfectly. The other downside was the installing of the software. Since I did not know very much about script-installing, it took me a while to get it to work, but now it does it's work very well!

It does the job, but installation could be a problem for some people

Ad Spy Pro does it's job. With Ad Spy Pro, I monitor all the ad campaigns marketing against my product, which allows me formulate an even more successful campaign for my own product. I thought $67 was a bit high, but I had no problem installing the php script on my host server; however, this is a drawback if you are not skilled in installing scripts. It did take a while to get it configured, and I do have to spend time keeping the information up to date. There may be easier ways to compile the same information on pay per click programs, but Ad spy Pro does do what it claims to be able to do.
