SAN FRANCISCO — June 4, 2015 — Kenshoo, the global leader in agile marketing software, and Boost Media, the leader in creative optimization marketing technology, today announced a partnership to benefit joint customers by streamlining the performance optimization process.

Writing and optimizing ad copy is a challenge for many marketers. Boost Media offers a platform that combines the power of a curated marketplace of human writers and designers, combined with a SaaS platform for automated insight and analysis. With the Boost Creative Optimization Suite, organizations can marry the natural creativity of individuals, with the automation and efficiency of a cloud-based platform to generate and optimize ad copy at scale. The Kenshoo Infinity Suite provides best-in-class solutions for maximizing lifetime value across mobile, search, social, and display. The combination of Boost Media and Kenshoo ensures the highest return on marketing dollars.

Marketers can test and activate new creative strategies to drive engagement and performance, allowing users to finally understand which creative strategies work and more importantly, why those strategies work. To date, Boost Media’s technology has powered more than $1 billion in paid search ads for 150 premium global brands across the retail, education, financial, healthcare, insurance, casual gaming, auto, and travel verticals. Meanwhile, Kenshoo directs more than $350 billion in annualized client sales revenue through its platform. Together, the Boost Media and Kenshoo partnership offers powerful scale and efficiency.

“Current approaches to ad creative development and testing have not advanced at the pace of consumer expectations. Templated approaches and fatigued ads leave consumers feeling disconnected with brands rather than engaged. The Kenshoo and Boost Media partnership will enable marketers to improve the speed, diversity, and quality of their ad creative,” said Boost Media CEO, David Greenbaum.

The partnership announcement comes in the wake of Kenshoo’s annual Hackathon, a competition with 17 global teams battling to generate new ideas and build working demos within 24 hours. A prototype built by a team of employees from both Boost Media and Kenshoo, which demonstrated how the two platforms could work together, emerged as the winner.

“We’re very excited about the Kenshoo and Boost Media partnership’s ability to deliver our joint customers greater understanding and improved performance of their search ad creative.  Our alignment and complementary offerings made this partnership a natural fit for us,” said Kenshoo SVP of Product, Will Martin-Gill.
