AOL Clients Will Be Able to Activate Cross Screen Audiences at Scale on Top Two Social Platforms
New York, NY – March 19, 2015 – Today AOL Inc. (NYSE: AOL) announced that it has entered into a global partnership with Kenshoo, the industry leader in agile marketing solutions. Through this agreement, AOL clients will gain access to inventory on two of the world’s largest social platforms. The solution will be a fully managed service to clients both in the United States and internationally.
Clients using ONE by AOL, an open media planning and management platform that continually gets “smarter” as it analyzes new campaign data, will have access to the social inventory at scale. Advertisers will now be able to leverage AOL’s proprietary predictive and first-party audience segments for targeting Twitter inventory, as well as all desktop and mobile, native and video inventory on Facebook, via the Kenshoo platform. The predictive analytics engine of ONE will provide immediate insights – including attribution – on metrics such as reach, frequency and performance across all screens and formats.
“The more data and insights an advertiser can put through a single, holistic and open platform, the better the analysis and decision making will be,” said Chad Gallagher, Global Director of Mobile, AOL. “We will provide fully managed services to our clients and direct access to all desktop native, and mobile inventory on the top social platforms.”
“This partnership will help marketers who have had to manage multiple data sources and solutions in order to get a holistic and accurate picture of their customers and those showing intent,” said Gary Nafus, Managing Director, Americas, Kenshoo. “Now AOL can put this larger data set to work through one platform, provide deeper audience insight, and utilize Kenshoo to drive performance from social at scale.”
ONE by AOL, an open, data-driven programmatic ecosystem for brands, agencies and publishers, will be launching soon.
