New York, NY (PRWEB) June 02, 2015
GoChime, a global leader in social marketing automation, today launched an integration with Act-On Software, the leading provider of marketing automation for small and mid-sized businesses. The integration enables Act-On clients to retarget known-customers in realtime by list, segment, or email behavior with mobile and desktop Facebook ads. Marketers can now engage marketing qualified leads and/or customers across a secondary channel, Facebook, to double the total number of leads or customers nurtured.
“The GoChime and Act-On integration bridges the gap between MarTech and AdTech,” said Gal Josefsberg, VP of Product Management & Marketing at Act-On. “Together the two systems make digital marketing more effective for our customers – giving them the ability to combine first- and third-party data to retarget prospects and find new audiences.”
The integration is made possible by GoChime’s Automated Custom Audience Management feature that enables a real-time exchange of anonymous customer data between a marketer’s Act-On account and Facebook ad campaigns. In other words, as customer data changes in Act-On, GoChime automatically adds and removes those members from relevant paid social campaigns across Facebook. This real-time exchange of data carries the promise of “right content, right time, right person” beyond email to Facebook, unifying the marketing message across the two most heavily used channels by internet users, email and social media.
“Paid social ads across Facebook and Twitter have reached a turning point much similar to the one email service providers reached as automation and triggered emails became the new norm for personalization,” says GoChime Cofounder & Chief Product Officer Josh Emert. “Given that four out of every five emails are never opened, we must discover additional channels to reach our known prospects. We’re driving ad campaigns across social media to fall in-line with the workflows built around the customer journey within the typically email-driven marketing automation system, because that’s where knowledge and data of customer resides today.”
True-identity retargeting has another benefit that is not as well publicized as it should be: it goes mobile and cross-device. Traditional display retargeting providers are only capable of retargeting desktop browser cookies tied to website browsing. By using customer data from Act-On, marketers retargeting through GoChime are able to reach known-prospects on desktops, phones, tablets, or through any device that users access Facebook. With over 60% of all internet traffic coming from mobile devices, being able to reach leads across mobile is a significant capability for marketers.
A few key benefits of the GoChime / Act-On integration include:
- Retarget email non-openers to double the number of leads nurtured (triple for b2c clients)
- Retarget leads/customers displaying high-intent by opening emails to drive more conversions
- Create and target Lookalike Audiences modeled off high-value customer lists or queries for customer acquisition
- Ad Variation A/B Testing and Multichannel Reporting that details how content performs cross-channel across a specified audience
True-Identity, Paid Social Retargeting via GoChime and Act-On is available now.
