Industry-leading IP geolocation technology chosen to enhance native content delivery, providing geo-based ad serving and fraud prevention
London, UK – 30 June 2020 – Seeding Alliance, a leading specialist in native advertising, has seen significantly improved performance following its partnership with Digital Element, the global geolocation and audience insights provider, with click through rates boosted by as much as 20%. Having chosen Digital Element’s NetAcuity Pulse™ technology, the Cologne-based native advertising experts now offer enhanced geo-based ad serving for their clients as well as in-depth traffic analysis for fraud identification.
Based in Germany, Seeding Alliance is one of the leaders in native advertising – a core tactic to engage consumers. By placing ads that authentically match the feel and function of the media in which they reside, Seeding Alliance allows the publishing of content that effectively targets relevant audiences without disrupting the natural editorial format of the publication.
Seeding Alliance selected Digital Element’s NetAcuity Pulse IP intelligence solution in May 2019 to improve their geolocation services and gain access to global IP datasets, enabling segmentation of relevant audiences based on various information layers – such as connection type, mobile carrier and internet service provider – without the user becoming personally identifiable. This has clearly helped to ensure the success of Seeding Alliance’s clients’ advertising campaigns, as consumers can be targeted with appropriate and relevant geo-location based ads to efficiently utilise advertising budgets and minimise fraud.
“Our previous solution choices were simply too inaccurate and incomplete, which led us to the decision to move data providers and choose the market leader, Digital Element, to achieve the best possible results for our clients,” commented Adrian Meyer, VP Technology at Seeding Alliance. “Shortly after the integration of the Digital Element data we realised that we were successfully blocking more fraud attempts and that the advertising campaigns were performing better. We have always been keen to provide sustainable increase in brand awareness, across extensive formats, without compromising consumer convenience and this partnership with Digital Element means we can now effectively target more tightly defined audiences, through the use of location specific content and IP intelligence.”
Digital Element’s NetAcuity Pulse™ uses a network of IP location information derived from mobile devices, billions of on-device location transactions, and internet routing infrastructure. This very precise – yet privacy-sensitive – global online targeting method is based on where a user is located and connected at a specific point in time, regardless of device. Information can include whether or not the connection is being made through a wifi network, the user’s point-in-time geographic location, and whether a home or business hotspot is in use. The benefits of using intelligent and precise targeting at scale include increased revenues, better return on investment, stronger brand loyalty, and improved consumer engagement.
“Seeding Alliance required a high level of accurate and intelligent support and we are delighted they chose our NetAcuity Pulse technology to assist them in tailoring their native advertising campaigns to target more specific audiences, and add to their armory for fighting ad fraud,” said Kate Owen, Digital Element’s Vice-President, Northern Europe. “We are proud of the accuracy of our data and one year on, it’s clear we have provided Seeding Alliance with valuable insights for them to continue to build on their success in this competitive advertising world.”
