Omniture is partnering with leading ad networks and services to provide a solution that will help customers easily find and remarket to past visitors. The partnerships Omniture is developing include: 24/7 Real Media, FOX Audience Network, Tribal Fusion, Traffic Marketplace, and Collective – The Audience Engine. The company is also teaming with digital advertising technology company the Rubicon Project. This solution will be gradually introduced over the coming months.

“With more advertising dollars moving online and resources being spent on display advertising, we are excited to partner with Omniture to enable their customers with more intelligent marketing optimization,” said Raj Chauhan, vice president of global demand, the Rubicon Project. “Through the integration, by leveraging the audience reach of the premium publishers on our REVV™ platform and the rich visitor profile data within Omniture SiteCatalyst, joint clients will be able to serve users with relevant messaging. This optimization strategy will directly result in increased ROI for display campaigns through targeted brand awareness and increased customer retention.”

Dynamic Ad Targeting & Optimization Using Omniture Test&Target

This solution will allow customers to dynamically generate display ads that personalize messaging and offers for increased conversion on the advertiser’s Web site. Marketers will be able to use anonymous visitor attributes to generate an infinite variety of ads and test creative content to present visitors with the most engaging creative assets. The solution will also leverage built in ad-sequencing and frequency capping capabilities that will increase campaign efficiency for advertisers.

This solution also provides publishers with valuable insights about their display advertising business, informing them of which content is effectively driving advertising revenue, which visitors are the most valuable, and how well they are monetizing their site.
