"Enabling marketers to target only those prospects that are likely to convert is incredibly powerful," said Darian Shirazi, CEO at Radius. "Our customers running targeted campaigns and account-based marketing initiatives struggle to reach their target audience online in meaningful and cost effective ways. Our partnership with LiveRamp now empowers them 2X greater reach across all digital advertising channels, accelerating their ability to convert pipeline and revenue."
Large enterprises are already experiencing the impact this one-of-a-kind joint solution provides. A Fortune 100 customer saw results in a broad-scale, acquisition-focused campaign powered by Radius and LiveRamp yielded two-times lower customer acquisition costs and 96 percent higher digital ad conversions compared to a traditional campaign. Another Radius enterprise customer saw a 40 percent lift in impression-to-lead conversions across social advertising campaign when targeting audiences identified by Radius.
"We're excited to see identity resolution being used to unlock people-based capabilities for B2B marketers," said Anneka Gupta, LiveRamp co-president. "With the declining effectiveness of email, B2B marketers need more channels to target prospects during their journey, and this partnership delivers that capability in a big way."
To drive revenue, companies need to reach the right person at the right place and time. Today, marketers lack the tools to fully utilize the promise of digital channels for identifying, targeting and converting accounts and contacts. A key barrier to digital advertising is poor data quality on targets and disjointed data integrations, which limits addressable audience and reach. In fact, while 66 percent of B2B marketers plan to increase digital budgets in the next 12 months, only 21 percent say that their teams excel at using data and insights to execute digital campaigns. Radius' Network of Record, the most comprehensive and accurate source for B2B data, connected to LiveRamp, enables marketers and their agencies to reach B2B prospects like never before. This partnership confirms that convergence of data, martech and adtech is here, defining a new age of data intelligence.
