Looking for a GDS connector for Facebook Ads, Tiktok, or something else and need a recommendation? Look no further! 

Mixed Analytics

Cost: $

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My 100% top recommendation for anyone getting started. If you can utilize Mixed Analytics, sheets, & GDS. You can do anything! 

Power My Analytics

Cost: $$

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

One of the best value to outputs in my opinion. Pricing makes sense to go directly to Looker Studio, but not to connect to Google Sheets. 


Cost: $$$

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

By far the most expensive, but also the most reliable and one of the most diverse connectors. If you have a larger budget & many unique data sources, this might be for you.

Two Minute Reports

Cost: $

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Two Minute Reports is one of the cheapest barriers to entry into the connector space
