SAILTHRU HELPS BRANDS DRIVE REVENUE AND INCREASE ROI VIA FACEBOOK CUSTOM AUDIENCES

Integration leverages Sailthru Smart Data and enables marketers to quickly identify consumers likely to convert and drive revenue through the Facebook Custom Audiences interface

Sailthru, the only customer interest-based automated personalization platform, today announced that it now enables brands to quickly and efficiently connect with consumers with interests similar to those of existing high value customers and audience members via Facebook Custom Audiences.

“We’ve seen great success with Custom Audiences, and this integration is further proof that brands working with trusted advisors - such as Sailthru - have unprecedented abilities to influence their consumers where they are spending most of their time online - both on desktop and on mobile,” said Blake Chandlee, Vice President of Partnerships, Facebook.

This new functionality allows Sailthru clients to target and acquire prospects, build personalized Facebook ad campaigns, and continuously engage their most valuable customers via Custom Audiences. Now, marketers can create Custom Audiences on Facebook in a fraction of the time, improving Return on Ad Spend (ROAS) and increasing customer acquisition and retention in the process.

JackThreads, a Sailthru client, measures social ROI primarily through ROAS. Their highest ROAS for web retargeting before deploying Sailthru’s lookalike engagements using Facebook Custom Audiences was 4-5x. Following participation in the pilot program JackThreads saw their return on ad spend increase to 6.8 times for dormant buyers and to 7.7 times for lapsed buyers. The integration allows JackThreads to granularly segment target audiences, update them more frequently, and track them more closely.

Sailthru’s proprietary interest data and robust individual user profiles make these Custom Audiences especially rich, building upon real-time data, cross-channel behaviors, and granular insight extracted from the Sailthru database. Marketers can target customers based on different data sets to ensure they are reaching the audience with the highest likelihood to engage with the brand. The integration will also make the manual importing and exporting of isolated lists obsolete, saving time and mitigating the risk of error.

“Sailthru believes in personalizing an end-user’s experience wherever that user may interact with a brand,” said Neil Capel, CEO and Founder, Sailthru. “Social continues to be one of the most impactful channels in today’s omnichannel world, delivering reach efficiency and performing 197% better than other channels. With this capability, our clients have a powerful new tool to tap into the information delivered via Sailthru Smart Data and bolster their marketing stack, reaching customers where it counts.”

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
