Best Creative Management Platforms

A creative management platform (CMP) combines a variety of display advertising tools utilized by marketing and advertising professionals into one cohesive, cloud-based platform. These tools include ad design builders capable of making dynamic creative in bulk, cross-channel publishing, and marketing data collection and analysis. Creative management platforms employ dynamic creative optimization (DCO) to automate the optimization of ad content by differentiating users and tailoring the creative. This makes for a more personalized and powerful ad experience while increasing an ad campaign’s overall performance.

Creative management platforms enable designers and marketing representatives to collaboratively create and manage full-scale marketing campaigns from one software solution. This allows a marketing campaign to live its lifecycle, from design to publishing, inside one platform, ensuring collaboration from all sides.

While most CMPs can be used to create and deploy full marketing campaigns on their own, many provide functionality or integrations that allow users to concurrently utilize another cross-channel advertising software or demand side platform to provide extra channel coverage.

To qualify for inclusion in the Creative Management Platform category, a product must:

  • Include built-in ad design functionality which can be produced en masse
  • Provide collaborative functions for ad design
  • Produce live, data-driven dynamic creative
  • Publish dynamic creative through multiple channels
  • Collect and analyze marketing campaign data
