San Francisco, CA – August 6, 2015 – Marin Software (NYSE: MRIN), provider of a leading cross-channel performance advertising cloud, and Boost Media, the leader in creative optimization marketing technology, today announced an enhanced partnership to benefit customers by streamlining the creative optimization process.
Marin Software is building on its partnership with Boost Media to emphasize the importance of including creative testing in advertisers’ messaging and bidding strategies. As a result, Marin Software customers will now be able to leverage Boost Media’s curated marketplace of expert copywriters and testing technology to optimize creative across search, social, and display campaigns. The complementary combination of Boost Media and Marin Software offers customers a scalable best of breed strategy to support their ROI for search, social, and display marketing campaigns.
Writing and optimizing ad copy is a challenge for many marketers due to scale, constrained resources, and lack of insight into what drives ROI. 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, marketers can test and activate new creative strategies to drive engagement and performance, helping users to finally understand which creative strategies work and more importantly, why those strategies work.
“Current approaches to ad creative development and testing have not advanced at the pace of consumer expectations. Templated approaches and irrelevant ads leave consumers feeling disconnected with brands rather than engaged. The Marin Software and Boost Media partnership helps marketers to improve the speed, diversity and quality of their ad creative,” said Boost Media CEO, David Greenbaum.
Marin’s advertising cloud refines marketers’ audiences by capturing and layering consumer intent, demographic, and behavioral buying signals with their proprietary marketing cloud data. Fusing first party marketing data with audience buying signals helps to create powerfully profitable audience segments by pinpointing intent and identifying those prospects that have the highest probability to convert. With complete visibility into performance, marketers can optimize to the unique economics of their business, including the ad creative that works best.
Chris Lien, Founder and Executive Chairman of Marin Software, said, “We’re excited about the expansion of the Marin Software and Boost Media partnership, and the ability to deliver our joint customers greater understanding and improved performance of their search ad creative. Our alignment and complementary offerings make this partnership a natural fit for us.”
