Dennis made the decision to focus on a more effective data collection strategy to support specific use cases and in turn, deployed Permutive across their full portfolio of websites. Permutive’s ability to seamlessly collect contextual and behavioural data from the page, ad units, product listings, search filters and even sign-up funnels made this a very simple, automated process.
Using Permutive, Dennis also started to generate and collect new sources of first-party data, for example, using short surveys which can be run via an ad unit on any page or website to ask specific questions of their audiences. These can be used to mine data, or inform campaigns for particular advertisers, as well as optimizing performance for users who have already viewed an ad.
Within Advertising Sales, Permutive’s Customer Success Team supported the retraining of more than 60 sales people to empower them to sell campaigns with audience data. Internally, Dennis’ Commercial Data Analyst now ensures RFPs are turned round as fast as possible and that responses to briefs detail the unique first-party audiences available. In examples where clients require bespoke segments, Dennis can now use Permutive to create and quantify these new segments within a few seconds, helping to maintain quick turnaround times for responses.
Permutive’s ability to target 100% of users across all browsers and devices, even those users who are visiting for the first time, maximizes the size of audiences the Sales team can sell, with the confidence that campaigns will deliver.
On Dennis websites focused on user acquisition and conversion, such as The Week and BuyACar, the granularity of data being collected by Permutive, in combination with tools such as Google Analytics, is now enabling full funnel analysis for the first time. Off the back of this, Dennis has started testing a variety of Marketing ad creatives tailored to specific segments set up within Permutive — for example, with particular subscription sign up offers to certain user segments. Having seen exciting results already, Dennis is now rolling out similar DMP-targeted campaigns across other brands.
