Marin Software has launched MarinOne – a next generation advertising platform that lets advertisers manage integrated campaigns across both search and social for better cross-channel alignment in one place.
With Google and Facebook continuing to dominate 80% of the digital landscape and over 60% of ad spend it is now more important than ever to know how your ads are performing. The new platform returns control to marketers who have been blind-sided by the ‘walled-garden’ approach of Google and Facebook.
Other new features include:
• Integrate: Use a wealth of first-party data to leverage more cross-channel insights.
• Align: Provides an independent view of how search and social channels influence one another.
• Amplify: Employing automated bidding and automatic transfer of audience data from one channel to another.
A recent report shows that customers who interact with both search and social channels are twice as likely to convert, giving marketers more reasons to jointly manage these two critical marketing channels as they seek to maximise the returns from their online advertising investments.
Online gifts retailer Buyagift is now benefitting from having one clear view of its company performance across all channels due to implementing MarinOne’s proprietary attribution feature, TruePath, which links device-level impression, click, and conversion data to drive accurate measurement, prevent conversation duplication, and optimise budget allocation. With its sleek new user-friendly interface, the intuitive new platform gives advertisers the capability to report, analyse and optimise all campaigns and audiences across search and social publishers delivering significant performance gains over traditional single-channel advertising tools.
A unified cross-channel advertising platform enables marketers to:
• Integrate: Use a wealth of first-party data to leverage more cross-channel insights, create and improve bidding rules, and manage e-commerce and product ads across multiple publishers effectively
• Align: Provides an independent view of how search and social channels influence one another by linking device-level impression, click, and conversion data to drive accurate measurement, prevent conversion duplication, and optimise budget allocation.
• Amplify: Employing automated bidding and automatic transfer of audience data from one channel to another, marketers are able to navigate increasingly competitive auctions with improved relevancy and performance, and without duplicating work.
• Perform: A single view of all campaigns across all publishers and powerful dashboards to report and analyse cross-channel performance.
• Personalise: In addition to applying best-fit audience and keyword bidding algorithms, Marin’s Professional Onboarding Services can integrate customers’ proprietary data with MarinOne making it possible to identify and leverage value in alternative data sets, boosting efficiency and performance.
MarinOne will be offered at a flat platform fee, rather than using traditional pricing as a percentage of digital ad spend. This will reduce friction for customers bringing additional channels and data into the platform, providing marketers a cross-channel view of their advertising activities and marketing ROI.
Marie Boivent, Vice President, Customer Success EMEA at Marin Software commented: “We created MarinOne to meet the demands of our customers who operate in highly competitive markets where agility and time are vital to sustain competitive advantages. We wanted to return control to marketers who have been blind-sided by the ‘walled-garden’ approach of publishers. Providing an intuitive, smart, user-friendly platform that removes these silos is the only way to do this. Our focus on transparent, integrated reporting will help our customers access and analyse real insights and ensure the highest possible return on their advertising spend.”
