Index Exchange Sees Immediate Lift for Publishers after Implementing the Trade Desk’s Unified ID Solution

Marketing News – MarketingTools365 – Mktg News – Marketing Tools 365 – //// Business Marketing news and Mktg News : Index Exchange Sees Immediate Lift for Publishers after Implementing the Trade Desk’s Unified ID Solution :

NEW YORK & LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Global advertising marketplace, Index Exchange, is the first supply-side
platform (SSP) to share the compelling results from its integration with
The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution. The Trade Desk (Nasdaq:TTD) is
offering its extensive, global cookie footprint at no cost to the
digital advertising industry at large. The partnership between these two
independent leaders in programmatic advertising allows marketers and
publishers to improve effectiveness by increasing addressable audience
reach.

Since adopting the unified ID solution, Index Exchange’s marketplace has
seen significant lift in user coverage, or match rates. Index Exchange
has seen match rates reach 99 percent, resulting in better audience
reach for advertisers and more yield for publishers.

We are committed to developing new approaches that deliver meaningful
results for publishers, buyers, and consumers. We’re excited to partner
with The Trade Desk on unified ID, as it raises the entire ad tech
industry to a higher standard by improving the efficiency of
cookie-based user syncing across the internet,” said Andrew Casale,
President and CEO, Index Exchange. “Providing their global cookie
footprint at no cost benefits our entire ecosystem, allowing for greater
audience addressability as well as faster web pages.”

Adoption of the free unified ID solution allows all parties across the
supply chain (SSPs, DSPs, DMPs and data providers) to utilize The Trade
Desk’s enormous cookie footprint to increase their own cookie coverage
across the independent internet. Additionally, companies have also
signed up to receive the unified ID solution from the Index Exchange
Header Tag Wrapper. These companies, many of which are seeing
significant match rate lift, can ingest the ID into their marketplaces
and distribute it to partners, including DSPs.

The fact that Index Exchange has already seen higher match rates from
their implementation of the unified ID solution validates our decision
to offer our cookie footprint at no cost,” added Jeff Green, CEO and
Founder of The Trade Desk. “We’re excited to see similar results as
adoption builds and the solution gains momentum, strengthening the
industry at large.”

The unified ID solution is one of a handful of identity solutions that
allows industry players to speak the same language when it comes to
cookie IDs. As others in the industry adopt universal cookie IDs, the
efficiency and effectiveness of digital advertising will continue to
improve. Both Index Exchange and The Trade Desk are also working closely
with other ID solutions like the Advertising ID Consortium to continue
to improve the digital advertising ecosystem.

media companies sell their ad impressions openly and in real-time. Built

Marketing News – MarketingTools365 – Mktg News – Marketing Tools 365 – //// Business Marketing news and Mktg News : Visual Merchandising: a Sure Shot Way to Increase Sales in the Retail Sector – Quantzig :

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Analytics?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Analyticslt;/agt;–A renowned merchandising analytics solutions provider, Quantzig, has
announced the completion of their latest article on the best
strategies to implement visual merchandising in retail.


Visual merchandising is an effective method to maximize sales. The
primary aim of visual merchandising in retail is to invoke the sensory
receptors of the target and potential customers. Investing in visual
merchandising can cost businesses in terms of time and money but can
prove to be a strong marketing tool for increasing customer loyalty.
This can help them in getting the most value out of their products.
However, businesses need to be cautious of the strategies they are
implementing to avoid unintended losses.

“Retailers should strike the right balance between promoting the
products and the number of promotional displays in order to attain
optimum sales,”
says a market expert from Quantzig.

Best strategies to implement visual
merchandising in retail:

Poor window displays

Window display is the first thing that draws the attention of customers.
Therefore, it becomes vital for businesses to utilize this space
effectively to attract customers. This should ideally comprise of key
visual merchandising elements such as proper lighting, props, and color
combinations. Stores should also ensure that the products and props used
in the window display are changed at definite intervals.

Quantzig’s merchandising analytics solutions have been helping
retailers make informed decisions both at strategic and tactical levels.
Request
a proposal
to know how you can leverage Quantzig’s solutions
to implement visual merchandising in retail.

Understocking or overstocking of products

Retailers need to manage their inventory smartly so that they can
address the needs of their customers without being overstocked.
Overstocking not only results in bad visual merchandising but also
creates a bad impression in the customers mind. This doesn’t mean that
stores should not have enough merchandise. In fact, retailers should
establish and adhere to a planogram and determine what goes where, in
what quantity, and when. Are you finding it difficult to implement
visual merchandising in retail?
Get
in touch with our experts.

Lack of continuity

Retailers need to make sure that the elements which they are putting on
the window display are easily accessible inside the store. Lack of
continuity can dip the sales of the store. However, using visual
merchandising elements that are based on a certain theme including the
point-of-sale systems will result in boosting sales. To know more

Mailbox 2019: Direct Mail Drives Performance and Enhances Marketers’ Integrated Strategies

Marketing News – MarketingTools365 – Mktg News – Marketing Tools 365 – //// Business Marketing news and Mktg News : Mailbox 2019: Direct Mail Drives Performance and Enhances Marketers’ Integrated Strategies :

Marketers Heavily Leverage the Mailbox to Shape Purchasing Decisions

LIVONIA, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/DirectMail?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#DirectMaillt;/agt;–Valassis,
a leader in activating consumers through intelligent media delivery,
today shares consumer insights about the importance of incorporating
activation-driving media into marketing strategies. While planning for
the new year, marketers should keep in mind the value of an integrated
marketing approach which includes the mailbox to activate consumers.
Smart marketers understand the power of aligning consumer data and
insights to their direct mail campaigns, averaging a 6
percent sales lift
. This all supports the fact that nearly 60
percent of Valassis clients have increased spend on direct mail packages
in 2018.

According to a survey
of value-seeking consumers
, nearly three-quarters said seeing an
offer in both print and online captures their attention, emphasizing the
importance of having an integrated approach to media. However, marketers
are increasingly drawn toward “shiny new objects” – such as VR/AR and
voice – at times oversteering away from proven and dependable media
channels that consumers have come to expect and rely on, like print.

“It’s important to leverage multiple media channels to reach, engage and
activate consumers across a variety of touchpoints, but marketers should
not overlook the proven and effective channel of the mailbox,” said
Curtis Tingle, Chief Marketing Officer at Valassis
. “While marketers
should test and learn from new media, allocating budget away from proven
performance drivers like direct mail could prove costly. Achieving the
right marketing mix is a challenging task, but by doing so, marketers
and brands will be able to better activate consumers with the right
deals at the right moments in the channels they prefer.”

“The marketplace is recognizing the value created through the balance of
precision and scale from our direct mail package,” said Gene Brandon,
Chief Product and Innovation Officer at Valassis
. “To date, nearly
60 percent of our clients have increased their spend on the RetailMeNot
Everyday™ Direct Mail Package year-over-year.”

In addition, the USPS reported revenue and piece count increases on
their Marketing Mail classes which include Valassis’ direct mail
packages, in their fiscal year ending October 2018.

“The reason marketers are rediscovering the value of the mailbox is our
direct mail package drives performance by activating consumers with the
use of location intelligence, web behavior analysis and more,” said Greg
Green, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at Harland Clarke Holdings
.
“Especially considering the escalation of online ordering, most U.S.
households have a mailbox or P.O. box, providing marketers a direct path
into consumers’ hands. With consistent delivery of print offers,
consumers have come to anticipate deals in their mailbox, such as RetailMeNot
Everyday
, and many plan their purchases accordingly.”

Further exemplifying the important role consumers’ mailboxes play in
purchasing decisions, consider this:

  • In an ongoing study fielded in conjunction with The NPD Group, Inc.,
    when asked how often they read or looked at advertisements that come
    in the mail, 69 percent of respondents said “always or most of the
    time,” with another 25 percent saying “sometimes.”
  • In the same study, 47 percent of consumers surveyed said within the
    previous seven days, they read through a direct mail package received
    in their mailbox from Valassis. Furthermore, 27 percent made a
    purchase based on the deals and offers within the package.

    • Parents responded even more favorably about direct mail; 51
      percent of parents read mailbox deals from Valassis, and 39
      percent made a purchase as a result.
  • Millennials are also known to be savvy, with 34 percent making
    purchases based on offers received from Valassis in the mail. Coupons
    and deals are a smart way to activate millennials overall, as 95
    percent claim to use coupons according to the 2K18
    Valassis Coupon Intelligence Report
    . Moreover, 44
    percent of millennials
    say the mailbox is their most preferred
    channel for receiving offers, ranking slightly higher than mobile (40
    percent).

expectation in the Hall were palpable.

Before learning of his surprise award, Mayor Johnson graciously
congratulated Commissioner Morrison — an Elk Grove native — for his
recent win to represent the 15th District on the Cook County
Board of Commissioners. The Mayor did not yet know he was the primary
reason the Commissioner was in attendance. Shortly, the Commissioner
would congratulate the Mayor.

With the Selection Committee on stage, Foundation CEO Dallas read a long
list of Mayor Johnson’s achievements, and then — to the mayor’s obvious
surprise and delight — announced Craig B. Johnson as ENCLAVE Luminary
Leader of the Year 2018.

ENCLAVE co-founders, psychiatrists David E. Morrison, Jr., M.D.
and David E. Morrison III, M.D., offered instructive reality
checks about the psychological and emotional significance and risks of
winning awards. Moderator Dallas kept the focus on the upside societal
relevance of awards as indicators of a community of leaders working
together. Dallas invited the evening’s honorees to periodically regroup
for innovative discussion — as the first cohort of ENCLAVE’s Luminary
Leaders League.

With one more stellar accomplishment to his good name, in a few days
Mayor Johnson will head-off to ESPN’s Makers Wanted™ Bahamas Bowl
on December 21; this year featuring Florida International University
(FIU) and University of Toledo. Elk Grove Village, IL is the first
non-tourist-destination city to be a title sponsor for a college
football bowl game.
