Dstillery and Placed Partner to Measure Cross-Channel Performance on In-Store Sales

Major Retailer Sees Strong Lift of In-Store Visits and Sales From Cross-Channel Campaign

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2014) - Dstillery, the pioneer in cross-device audience targeting for brands, announced today that it has partnered with attribution company Placedto deliver cross-channel measurement solutions for brands. The first test, conducted for one of the top five U.S. department stores, proved that Dstillery's targeted campaign boosted in-store sales by five percent and increased the likelihood of consumers visiting the retailer's brick and mortar store by 34 percent.

"With consumers juggling their multiple devices, marketers are challenged to figure out the contributions of each channel to purchase decisions," said Tom Phillips, CEO of Dstillery. "This partnership with Placed not only enables us to deliver industry leading cross-device targeting solutions for brands -- across desktop, smartphone and tablet -- but it also lets us capture their impact on offline sales. The result is greater campaign insight, improved optimization and efficiency, and better outcomes for our clients."

The two companies conducted an analysis of a Dstillery targeted campaign for a major national retail brand to determine the impact of online advertising on offline behavior. Specifically, the retailer sought to measure the effect of delivering targeted desktop impressions on driving store visits and in-store purchases. Combining Dstillery's CrossWalk multi-device intelligence technology and Placed's panel-based mobile measurement approach, the retailer was able to evaluate the return on their digital investment.

"Measuring the impact of online advertising on offline sales is a breakthrough for our industry," said David Shim, Founder and CEO of Placed. "In a first for the industry, this study connects the dots between desktop campaigns and offline behavior. We view our work with Dstillery on cross-channel measurement solutions as a huge step forward for both our clients and the digital advertising industry."
