Localytics Announces Integration with Google’s DoubleClick Digital Marketing Platform


Integration gives marketers the ability to power push, in-app, geo-fence and remarketing campaigns to segments of users acquired from DoubleClick

BOSTON, July 27, 2016: Localytics, the leading mobile engagement platform, today announced a direct attribution integration with Google’s DoubleClick Digital Marketing (DDM) platform, the top ad server with nearly 80% market share. The integration will enable Localytics customers to get insights into users acquired from campaigns run on Google’s DoubleClick Ad Exchange, including installs and post-install behavior, and then target push, in-app, geo-fence and remarketing campaigns to segments of users acquired from DoubleClick. Additionally, customers will be able to optimize their marketing spend on DoubleClick user acquisition campaigns that generate the highest conversion, retention and lifetime value.

Companies programmatically buying app install ads across the DoubleClick network need to be able to integrate their efforts with their downstream, post-install behavioral analytics and engagement efforts. They also need to be able to understand how DDM compares to other acquisition services in driving new users and engagement.

With Localytics’ DDM integration, companies get an immediate view into user acquisition across channels, how these users are behaving, and the ability to easily target push, in-app, geo-fence and remarketing campaigns to segments of users. As a result, companies will be able to better understand which DDM campaigns help to drive post-install behavior and be able to optimize future ad spend toward those campaigns.

“By breaking down the ‘install wall’ and unifying pre- and post-install data, our integration with DDM will give companies a 360 view of their customers,” said Lou Orfanos, vice president of product at Localytics. “We are the only vendor to provide the engagement tools needed to then act on these insights, which will be crucial in enabling companies to optimize spend on DDM user acquisition campaigns and maximize their ROI.”

Localytics’ DDM integration is currently in beta, with general availability expected later this year at no additional cost to existing Localytics customers.
