New online ad technology boosts online campaign ROI by almost 25% / Exponential

by Will Corry on April 9, 2014

Exponential @exponentialinc has launched a new ad technology that, for the first time, applies transparent audience behavioural models in real-time to help optimise online campaigns.

Called "AERO", the technology/algorithm instantly analyses 50,000 user interests/behaviours to define which ones exhibit the greatest behavioural 'lift' so the ad can instantly be served to the people most likely to react to it.
