How does BigSpy work ?
BigSpy integrates an operation identical to several other adspy tools. However, it is not similar to them in any way since BigSpy like several other adspy tools like DropiSpy have its particularities. To better understand this subject, we invite you to discover our BigSpy vs Dropispy comparison to find out which of the two tools would be the most useful for you to succeed effectively.
Let’s go back to the subject of our article to find out how BigSpy works. We will analyze the tool from several angles and identify what is possible or not with the adspy tool.
BigSpy : Advanced search and filtering
BigSpy integrates several search options such as: keyword search; search by Facebook page name; search by domain name and finally search by ID (ads, page). On the other hand, the tool does not allow you to search in the text of the landing page and search in the comments.
The possibilities of filters and sorting are very useful features for an adspy tool. BigSpy gives several possibilities. However, on this point, the tool lacks some features. Here is a comprehensive table summarizing the sorting and filtering features on BigSpy.
|Filtering and sorting ads||Bigspy|
|Filter by number of likes, shares and comments||✔️|
|Filter by number of reactions||❌|
|filter by type of e-commerce platform||✔️|
|Filter by ad language||✔️|
|Filter by creation type||video, picture, carousel, html|
|Filter by call to action||✔️|
|Filter by running time||❌|
|Filter by number of daily like||❌|
|Filter by ios, android, desktop, mobile||❌|
|Filter by target audience||❌|
|Filter and sort by date||Last view, first view|
|Sort by like, share||✔️|
|Sort by number of reactions||❌|
|Sort by number of comments||✔️|
|Sort by number of impressions||✔️|
|Sort by running time||✔️|
On Bigspy, it is impossible to filter ads by creation date. Yet, this filter is very essential to be able to effectively search for new ads. On the other hand, we can give it a positive point because it allows you to sort by popularity of the ad.
Indeed, thanks to this feature, BigSpy gives a rating to each ad. Thus, the higher the popularity value of the ad, the more competitive it is according to this theory.
This data seems very interesting! However, one can question its effectiveness. Since, the popularity of an ad without its creation date does not allow to know the most popular new ads of the moment.
Ads volume on Bigspy
The volume of ads is a very essential point for an Adspy tool worthy of the name. If you want to do a search and quickly find a winner, you must bet on adspy tools which provide a significant volume of ads.
BigSpy on the other hand provides a substantial ad volume. But, is it better than other adspy tools of the same caliber? To discover this comparison between DropiSpy and BigSpy, we invite you to read the BigSpy vs DropiSpy comparison indicated above. You can also read our BigSpy vs Poweradspy comparison.
In addition, these comparisons allow you to discover several other points of comparison between the different adspy tools such as information on ads and other useful features.
Bigspy : Ads data
The data that an adspy tool can provide on ads is of paramount importance. Indeed, they allow you to know if an ad has worked well over time in order to make an objective analysis. They also allow you to know the engagement of people in relation to each ad and to judge its relevance.
That being said, what data does BigSpy allow you to collect on ads?
On Bigspy, there is data about the advertiser’s website like the domain name of the website, their Alexa rank and the number of products on their site. This data is very essential. Moreover, they are provided by very few Adspy tools.
Another advantage that BigSpy has over other adspy tools is to collect and provide data on the number of ad impressions. Although the tool lacks several other ad data, it provides several relevant and very useful data.
Other useful features
Beyond all the features that we have just mentioned, BigSpy admits several other useful features.
On BigSpy, you are given the opportunity to have access to ads for gaming apps. As an e-merchant, this data is of little use to you. However, if you are a gaming app creator, this feature can be very interesting for you.
In addition, BigSpy gives you access to ads from several social networks, namely: YouTube, TikTok, or Pinterest. If you are a Dropshipper, the ads provided on Pinterest and TikTok networks will serve you immensely.
