Using Lytics to improve ad retargeting: Top 5 use cases

Use the Lytics Customer Data Platform to increase conversions, lower ad spend, and improve ROI.

Here's a marketing truth for you:

Most ad dollars are spent inefficiently—either targeting too many people with a generic message or targeting individuals who are unlikely to engage or convert. Which is why many marketers aren't seeing the returns on ad retargeting that they're hoping for.

So, how do we fix that?

Enter Lytics CDP—the data-unifying, machine learning-driven platform designed to help you advertise to the right people based on the content they like, they channels they prefer, and how they already engage with your brand.

Lytics gives marketers an always-on customer profile that's enriched with machine learning to understand and present data on specific behaviors and preferences in real-time. Marketers use this data for a significant advantage with their advertising efforts.

Our integrations with your favorite ad tools—Facebook ads, AdRoll, Google ads, DoubleClick for Publishers—make it easy to use send individual customer data to all your tools and channels to help you improve your marketing results.

So, what are the use cases we typically see clients using to generate real marketing results? Here are the top five:

Reach the right audiences using real-time, behavior-based data

Isolated, channel-centric events (like website clicks or email opens) don’t provide a comprehensive view of your customers—or their real intentions.

Which is why Lytics uses behavioral algorithms to analyze all of your customer data (email, website, purchasing, help desk, etc.) and scores your customers by their overall engagement level. This gives you predictive insights that you can use in your marketing tools to target and reach the right audiences.

Spend less time managing lists, and empower the organization with accurate data

Static audience lists in your ad tools are nearly impossible to keep up-to-date, especially when they get stored across the organization and with agency partners.

Lytics serves as a centralized data hub for your ever-changing audience segments and automatically syncs them in real-time with your advertising tools across the organization so that you don’t have to spend time re-importing and updating them every day. This ensures your organization is empowered with accurate data that's up-to-date in real-time.

Don't pay for the wrong people; reduce ad spend and improve ROI

Lytics lets you exclude individuals who won’t benefit from paid advertising efforts. For example, people who are likely not to engage, employees, recent customers, or anyone who prefers to engage with your brand in email vs. paid ads.

This gives you the power to create hyper-relevant audiences and pay to serve ads only to those most likely to benefit. Avoid wasted ad spend and improve your ROI.
