Bidtellect and Bombora Partner to Increase Conversions per Click in a Campaign Test Using Contextual Targeting

Bidtellect, Bombora | January 20, 2023

Bidtellect, one of the leading demand-side platform and advertising technology firms, and Bombora, the pioneer in B2B intent data, recently collaborated with a financial services client to compare the effectiveness of contextual targeting and behavioral targeting in a head-to-head campaign test. The results demonstrate the efficacy of context-sensitive, cookie-free technology as a performance aid rather than a cookie substitute. The objectives of the campaign were to direct users to the client's landing pages and promote chatbot interactions. The contextual campaign used Bombora's contextual segments to accompany Bidtellect's bidding technology. Ultimately, Bombora and Bidtellect contextual technology drastically reduced the cost of driving users to landing pages, saving the client money and optimising return on spend. Director of Sales at Bidtellect, Jonno Burden, said, "Account-based marketing has historically been the default strategy for our B2B partners targeting decision-makers in their industry." He added, "Bombora and Bidtellect's double-pronged approach incorporating their contextual solution not only reaches potential clients via ABM targeting, but drives incremental conversions, engagement, and reach that are potentially missed. We were thrilled to see such great results with new converting clients." (Source – GlobeNewswire) Notable outcomes include eCPC (effective cost per click) and eCPM efficiencies, which resulted in 38% more impressions and an astounding 83% more clicks by the contextual test campaign than to the control campaign. In addition, the Bombora contextual test campaign performed 48% higher in landing page CPA (cost per acquisition) and 19% better in chatbot CPA than the behavioral control campaign.

Intentsify | February 24, 2023

Intentsify, a leading buyer-intent data and activation solutions provider, has unveiled a breakthrough in its intent data technology called 'next-generation precision intent.'

The key feature of this technology is its ability to generate highly accurate intent signals tailored to a customer's specific products and business offerings, making it the first and only intent data solution with this level of precision.

With its precision intent solution, Intentsify is transforming the intent data landscape. By analyzing a marketer's messaging, web pages, and online marketing materials, this technology automatically selects and assigns unique weights to unlimited topics, keywords, and products. As a result, it can identify intent that is perfectly aligned with the marketer's GTM, providing next-level buyer intelligence. This, in turn, enables B2B GTM teams to efficiently deliver exceptional and effective full-funnel buying experiences that drive revenue. Key capabilities and advantages of Intentsify's precision intent include the following: Unmatched breadth of intent coverage: Combining multiple signal sources Automation - less effort, time, and expertise needed to generate value from intent data: Intentsify's NLP streamlines GTM teams' marketing efforts by automatically selecting and weighing relevant topics and keywords from a marketer's online messaging, reducing time, effort, and specialized skills needed Intent-signal transparency: First & only intent data solution with URL-level visibility for customer confidence in signal validity About Intentsify Intentsify is a company that specializes in providing advanced precision intelligence for B2B intent data.
