NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/-- Emogi, the visual expression platform for mobile messaging, today announced a partnership with Moat – a SaaS Analytics company focused on delivering 3rd party measurement and Attention Analytics to marketers and publishers. The new partnership will provide Moat's standardized metrics to measure branded content in mobile messaging for the first time - empowering brands to more confidently shift dollars to messaging apps ahead of other channels.
The Emogi platform uniquely predicts conversations and seamlessly integrates emoji, stickers and GIFs in mobile messaging conversations consumers have daily. With Emogi, marketers can leverage the native keyboard to deliver content immediately, without requiring consumers to search for, and download a separate emoji keyboard, app or sticker pack. Through machine learning, the Emogi platform identifies the unique context of conversations where brands can introduce their content at the right moment to be additive to the conversation. This includes specific triggers such as where consumers are or how they're feeling, as well as the use of specific phrases or emoji.
"We're excited to partner with Moat to unlock effective measurement of mobile messaging," said Alexis Berger, Chief Strategy Officer of Emogi. "The new application of Moat's metrics will give marketers and brands the ability to understand the contextual use of emoji, stickers and GIFs by consumers. Not only will this partnership provide brands with greater insight into how effectively their emoji and content capture attention, but also how to optimize campaigns and creative content in what is a very personal 1:1 channel for consumers."
"The opportunity for brands to benefit from native integration of content in mobile messaging in a way that supports consumers' desire to communicate with fun graphical elements is intriguing," said Susan Schiekofer, Chief Digital Investment Officer of GroupM North America. "The Emogi and Moat partnership is an interesting development in that it promises both consumer convenience and utility, and the accountability advertisers require to invest in this medium."
"As mobile messaging has become an increasingly valuable channel for marketers, we've recognized a growing need to equip them with the right metrics to evaluate performance," said Jonah Goodhart, CEO and Co-Founder of Moat. "We are pleased to launch Attention Analytics measurement with Emogi, a leader who has broken ground in the category, and to partner closely on continued innovation in the space."
