Facebook has launched its new Atlas advertising platform, which according to the company represents the next step in tracking ad effectiveness across devices.
The company is calling this new approach a ”People-based marketing” It says People spend more time on more devices than ever before and this shift in consumer behavior has had a profound impact on a consumer’s path to purchase, both online and in stores. And today’s technology for ad serving and measurement – cookies – are flawed when used alone.
”Cookies don’t work on mobile, are becoming less accurate in demographic targeting and can’t easily or accurately measure the customer purchase funnel across browsers and devices or into the offline world.” Facebook said
According to a blog post on the Atlas site
Atlas delivers people-based marketing, helping marketers reach real people across devices, platforms and publishers. By doing this, marketers can easily solve the cross-device problem through targeting, serving and measuring across devices. And, Atlas can now connect online campaigns to actual offline sales, ultimately proving the real impact that digital campaigns have in driving incremental reach and new sales.
Atlas has been rebuilt on an entirely new code base, with a user interface designed for today’s busy media planners and traffickers. Targeting and measurement capabilities are built-in, and cross-device marketing is easy with new ways of evaluating media performance centered on people for reporting and measurement. This valuable data can lead to better optimization decisions to make your media budget even more effective.
The industry is moving to people-based marketing
We’re excited to announce that Omnicom is the first holding company to sign an agency-wide ad serving and measurement partnership with Atlas. Together, Omnicom – powered by Neustar technology– and Atlas will jointly develop integrations to enable more automated capabilities for Omnicom’s clients, including Pepsi and Intel – who are among the first testing the new platform.
We’re also welcoming a key group of partners that cross search, social, creative management and publishers. These partners will bring people-based measurement to more channels and platforms with seamless integrations.
For example, Instagram – as a publisher – is now enabled with Atlas to both measure and verify ad impressions. And for Atlas advertisers who are already running campaigns through Instagram, Instagram ads will be included in Atlas reporting.
