Global Datalicious Relationship Expands People-based Cross-device Marketing Attribution

Equifax Inc., (NYSE: EFX), a global information solutions provider, and its subsidiary, Datalicious, the global marketing data specialists, today announced a multi-touch attribution measurement partnership with Facebook.

Through this partnership, Datalicious will gain the ability to attribute across media channels to measure campaigns using a more accurate people-based approach. Marketers upgrading to this people-based marketing attribution could continue to unlock additional value in advertising across all of their campaigns.

This new partnership delivers a clear understanding of how paid media influence customers and prospects on Facebook and its properties. Marketers can now understand how their Facebook campaigns compared to other media investments and how Facebook can complement other channels to drive conversions or in-store visits. A recent study conducted by Facebook and Datalicious, with three Australian brands, found that there is potential for 33 percent improvement in ROI when levels of spend match the attributed return, as measured leveraging people-based data.

The partnership also demonstrates Facebook’s commitment to providing increased transparency and choice when it comes to measuring ad campaigns. Multi-touch attribution via Datalicious is done without the use of personally-identifiable information, as marketers have come to expect from a trusted data steward such as Equifax.

“Today’s marketing landscape is broken up among multiple channels, and marketers must be able to understand how each one affects their sales,” said Christian Bartens, CEO and Founder, Datalicious.

“Facebook has built a reliable system that allows marketers to reach consumers across devices and browsers. We’re honoured that Facebook has selected Datalicious as one of the first few marketing partners to offer the ability to measure Facebook alongside other media.”
