Actiplay from Concoursmania launches ACTIVATE®
Actiplay, the data marketing agency in the Concoursmania Group, is launching ACTIVATE®, a new digital system with the objective of bringing down the extremely high level (95%) of audience “volatility” on internet sites.
More practically, ACTIVATE, which needed 2 years of R&D, makes it easier to identify and therefore reconnect with visitors by transforming them into potential “opt-in” customers in a single click.
This system has been designed by using the network of 25 million profiles collected by Concoursmania from its gaming competitions.
Thanks to ACTIVATE technology, “we can identify the commonalities between visitors and our profiles and then display an activation lightbox to all the contacts unknown to the brand. Visitors don’t need to complete any forms as we already have this information in the database; a simple validation click is enough to subscribe. The new opt-in profile is then transmitted to the site’s brand editor”, says Thibaut Seguy, technical manager at Actiplay.
This real-time matching offers advertisers up to 20 times more engagement than a standard system.
