WHAT WE DO
HOW WE DO IT
The Infrastructure enables you to reach your audience more effectively than ever before. It’s the “on ramp” you need to have direct access to the advertising technology ecosystem. We create the design and specifications of your Audience Intelligence Platform (AIP), the data management platform your company needs to improve the quality of your customer data in-house and to interact with advertising technology ecosystem “out there.” We design and implement, providing an end-to-end solution.
We integrate the new infrastructure into your current systems – or build one from scratch, if necessary. With a customer data strategy, we aggregate your 1st party data. Data aggregation captures scattered data from multiple sources into a single new central repository to improve data quality and accessibility. Your data will be liberated from silos, audited, cleansed, and normalized to create better buying experiences for your customers.
Customer data enrichment increases the value of your data and involves augmenting, correcting, interpolating, and matching data. We enrich your data by creating a 3rd party data strategy that effectively augments your existing data. Data augmentation may include appending demographic, behavioral, geographical and transactional information. We have a proprietary technology that enables real time enrichment of customer data that we offer for 3rd party data sourcing and augmentation. We might recommend an alternative, if appropriate, based on what we assess to be the most effective solution for your situation. The result is that you’ll have data assets you didn’t have before.
Increasing consumption of your products and services is a primary benefit of leveraging data. Use cases include:
- increasing marketing return (ROI),
- audience acquisition and development,
- content personalization, and
- distribution optimization.
Enhance your strategic decision-making with advanced business intelligence and data visualization. Leverage advanced analytics, machine learning and predictive “what if” scenarios to:
- determine the impact of changes,
- improve pricing analyses,
- model new services, and
- create a 360° view of customer to bridge the linear/digital data gaps across content, brands and business units.
Maximize advertising revenue by utilizing both 1st and 3rd party data sets to deliver highly targeted audiences with less waste at a premium price point through:
- ad plan optimization,
- inventory optimization,
- pricing optimization and
- attribution tracking.
When you activate it, your data becomes currency. Activation puts your valuable data to work. We help you leverage the data assets you’ve built. This includes audience targeting, programmatic and private marketplaces, measurement, consumer insights and more. We have a proprietary technology platform that supports activations. We might recommend an alternative, if appropriate, based on what we assess to be the most effective solution for your situation.
Data Discovery and Acquisition
The Big Data ecosystem continues to expand – exponentially. New sources of data are being created and curated each and every day. We can assist your organization in understanding and navigating the complex market for “big data.” Our in-house data team is constantly searching for and vetting new sources and datasets. We have evaluated hundreds of 3rd party datasets and have compiled a prioritized directory of sources for attribute enrichment.
