HYFN Announces API Integration with Acxiom For New Facebook Custom Audiences

Exclusive Beta Partnership Generates 25 Percent Higher Custom Audience Match Rates

Hermosa Beach, California – HYFN, a full-service digital agency and Facebook Marketing Partner, today announced a new API integration with Acxiom, an enterprise data, analytics and software-as-a-service company, for developing Managed Custom Audiences on Facebook. Acxiom and HYFN partnered exclusively to beta test the new API by sending data directly into HYFN’s social media management platform, HYFN8.

Acxiom’s completion of a new first-to-market API with Facebook enables the creation of Managed Custom Audiences based on additional matching parameters, such as postal address, for more accurate match rates and effective Facebook ads targeting. The new API allows marketers to create enhanced custom audiences directly via HYFN8.

Acxiom exclusively beta tested the new API with HYFN for a major entertainment company for the duration of one month. During this time, the advertiser reached a broader section of Facebook users through the new API offering with a cumulative audience that was almost 25 percent larger when Acxiom’s matches were included. HYFN8 is the first platform to include this type of advanced Managed Custom Audience, which leverages Acxiom data directly from a single platform.

“We are thrilled that we were able to work with Acxiom for this first-to-market opportunity to increase Managed Custom Audience match rates directly through an FMP platform,” said Morgan Harris, Founder and CEO of HYFN. “We believe that HYFN8 users can uniquely reach direct response customers more efficiently than any other platform on the market today.”

“For an advertiser to quickly and easily build a social marketing campaign in a single platform that achieves offline objectives online is very powerful,” said Dana Hayes Jr., GVP of Global Partner Development at Acxiom. “We are pleased that this partnership will help marketers deliver highly targeted ads with greater efficacy.”
