Sailthru, the only customer interest-based automated personalization platform, today announced that it now enables brands to quickly and efficiently connect with consumers with interests similar to those of existing high value customers and audience members via Facebook Custom Audiences.
“We’ve seen great success with Custom Audiences, and this integration is further proof that brands working with trusted advisors - such as Sailthru - have unprecedented abilities to influence their consumers where they are spending most of their time online - both on desktop and on mobile,” said Blake Chandlee, Vice President of Partnerships, Facebook.
This new functionality allows Sailthru clients to target and acquire prospects, build personalized Facebook ad campaigns, and continuously engage their most valuable customers via Custom Audiences. Now, marketers can create Custom Audiences on Facebook in a fraction of the time, improving Return on Ad Spend (ROAS) and increasing customer acquisition and retention in the process.
JackThreads, a Sailthru client, measures social ROI primarily through ROAS. Their highest ROAS for web retargeting before deploying Sailthru’s lookalike engagements using Facebook Custom Audiences was 4-5x. Following participation in the pilot program JackThreads saw a 6.8x increase in ROAS for dormant buyers and a 7.7x increase in ROAS for lapsed buyers. The integration allows JackThreads to granularly segment target audiences, update them more frequently, and track them more closely.
Sailthru’s proprietary interest data and robust individual user profiles make these Custom Audiences especially rich, building upon real-time data, cross-channel behaviors, and granular insight extracted from the Sailthru database. Marketers can target customers based on different data sets to ensure they are reaching the audience with the highest likelihood to engage with the brand. The integration will also make the manual importing and exporting of isolated lists obsolete, saving time and mitigating the risk of error.
“Sailthru believes in personalizing an end-user’s experience wherever that user may interact with a brand,” said Neil Capel, CEO and Founder, Sailthru. “Social continues to be one of the most impactful channels in today’s omnichannel world, delivering reach efficiency and performing 197% better than other channels. With this capability, our clients have a powerful new tool to tap into the information delivered via Sailthru Smart Data and bolster their marketing stack, reaching customers where it counts.”
Sailthru, the only customer interest-based automated personalization platform, is driving a major shift in how companies engage with their individual customers and optimize their revenue opportunities. Through the automated analysis of large data sets, Sailthru Smart Data generates and delivers personalized, omnichannel digital brand experiences. Sailthru-powered 1:1 relationships with consumers drive higher revenue and conversion for more than four hundred enterprises including Mashable, Rent the Runway, Thrillist/JackThreads, Everlane, Huffington Post and Business Insider.
Founded in 2008 by Neil Capel, Ian White and Chris Chapman and headquartered in New York City, Sailthru is recognized for its industry-leading practices promoting consumer privacy and security by the Online Trade Association (OTA) and is on their 2013 Honor Roll. Sailthru has been named #30 on the annual Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies including #2 in NY and #6 in the advertising and marketing category.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
