Improve Engagement for Automotive Brand with Contextual Expansion

GroupM Germany ran multiple campaigns for an automotive company that wanted to gain a better understanding of their target audience and drive more conversions with their programmatic campaigns.

Zeotap Data-powered Contextual Expansion solution was chosen due to its power to intelligently scale the campaign and provide insights into the target audience. This solution eliminated guesswork by dynamically informing Illuma’s Contextual Engine to learn from real-time content consumption, analyse URLs and identify relevant topics.

Effective Campaign Scaling with Data-Driven Contextual Expansion

Zeotap Data, combined with Iluma’s AI-powered Contextual Targeting technology, drives our unique approach: data-powered contextual expansion. 

It all starts with the activation of own customer data or a third-party data segment on the selected DSP. Once the segments are live, the contextual recommendation engine analyzes the websites visited by the target audience and identifies the most relevant, highest performing inventory. Based on these insights, campaign delivery is expanded – all happening in real time.
