Adobe Advertising Cloud’s updated UI And AI features driving higher ROI

12 Mar 18

Search advertisers face increased complexity in planning and optimising campaigns. 

Billions of data points and decisions inform a typical search campaign, from thousands of keywords across multiple properties to targeting parameters like audience, device, geography, time of day and more.

It’s impossible for humans to sift through all that data and make optimal decisions on budget allocation and bid optimisation to get the best possible results. 

To address these challenges, Adobe has introduced new Adobe Advertising Cloud Search with easy-to-use workflows, unique data access and artificial intelligence (AI).

Part of Adobe Experience Cloud, the offering is designed to save advertisers time and increase ROI. 

Adobe Advertising Cloud Search is simplifying the process for using audience targeting in search marketing.

The advancements are the first in the industry to couple audiences from a leading marketing technology stack, Adobe Experience Cloud, with AI and machine learning to drive higher returns for advertisers. 

Adobe Sensei, the company’s AI and machine learning framework, is at the centre of driving these new capabilities.

With granular engagement metrics from Adobe Analytics as well as audiences from Adobe Audience Manager and Adobe Campaign readily available, Adobe Advertising Cloud Search leverages Adobe Campaign KPI Optimisation to inform bid prioritisation, simulations and forecasting decisions.

Adobe Advertising Cloud Search also features a new (user interface) UI, built from the ground up to ensure ease-of-use and make workflows more efficient and effective.

Updates include an array of new bulk-edit features, including the ability to copy-and-paste directly from the UI into Excel and – vice versa – with changes reflected immediately.

Advertisers can also quickly search, navigate and organise complex campaigns for faster management.

Finally, customised reporting filters and columns help to simplify complex data to speed decision-making.

In optimising campaigns, Adobe Sensei scans for discrepancies between modelled and actual performance, automatically adjusting keyword bids multiple times per day to maximise returns.

Adobe Advertising Cloud Search delivers this optimisation with the highest level of transparency of any search platform.

Advertisers have complete visibility into forecast models and their accuracy, with reports available at any time for advertisers to drill into click, cost and revenue models.

“The next generation of search advertising will be powered by better data, sophisticated data science and greater transparency,” says Adobe Advertising Cloud VP Justin Merickel.

“Adobe Advertising Cloud Search is delivering on that promise and amplifying what humans can do through greater automation.”

“We’re impressed with the level of performance we’ve achieved with Adobe Advertising Cloud Search,” says Barclays digital marketing – digital acquisition senior director Adam Allamar.

“The benefits of AI and machine learning technology for bid optimisation, forecasting and media budget allocation are readily apparent.”
