Adbeat has a variety of plans, all with different options.  In this article we’ll go over the most popular plans and focus on which use-cases they’re designed for.

Adbeat Free Tools

Best for: doing basic or preliminary research on display and native advertisers.

Adbeat’s Free Tools are perfect for doing preliminary research on display and native advertisers.  Using the Free Tools, you’re able to see how active an advertiser is, the ad channels they’re using (Direct, Native, Programmatic), and how many publisher sites they’re advertising on.  Plus, you can see dozens of ad creatives — all for the low, low price of free!

Adbeat Intro Plan

Best for: new advertisers and publishers who need more than the basic data the Free Tools offer.

Adbeat’s Free Tools are great, but they’re easy to outgrow.  That’s where Adbeat Intro comes in.  The Adbeat Intro plan is perfect for new advertisers and publishers who are just starting out with display and native advertising.  Using Adbeat Intro you’ll be able to see how advertisers and ads are performing over time.  Every ad creative is available to view at full-size and the powerful keyword search will allow you to discover new ads, advertisers, and publishers that you just can’t access from within the Free Tools.

Besides advanced reporting and ad tags, a key feature is the ability to set Smart Alerts.  Smart Alerts allow you to be alerted via email when an advertiser has spent a significant amount of money on a new creative, publisher, or ad network.  Smart Alerts make it easy to keep tabs on a set of competitors or prospective client.
