Innovid is introducing a new suite that enables marketers, for the first time, to include video throughout the customer journey through its integrations with Adobe, IBM, and Oracle marketing clouds. Innovid claims that the new Marketing Cloud Suite breaks the silos between video and other marketing channels and allows marketers to develop more meaningful relationships with consumers by using first and third-party data from other marketing channels such as web, email, search, display, social, mobile, and commerce to drive more consumer engagement with richly personalized and relevant video ads.

By using data to deliver more effective video creative, and now integrating video throughout the customer journey, marketers can provide powerful one-to-one marketing which could not previously be achieved. Innovid is also now passing back user intent data to marketing clouds and data management platforms based on video interactions, which will help marketers improve existing customer segmentation and drive marketing automation, simplifying the complexity of today’s multi-channel world and increasing the overall effectiveness of every channel.

Innovid uses data provided by DSP and DMP platforms to personalize video campaigns, and leverages that data to engage targeted audiences in meaningful ways at scale.

zvika-headshot-office-1Zvika Netter, Innovid’s CEO and co-founder, tells Portada that “Innovid’s Video Marketing Platform offers a variety of different solutions that help advertisers engage consumers across all screens and channels. The Marketing Cloud Suite will be valuable for marketers involved in media buying/ planning/ activation, such as teams reporting to the SVP, Marketing Strategy or VP, Digital Marketing. We work directly with them and with the marketing data teams within brands. Other marketing teams benefit from this as well, such as website, email and social marketing teams.”

Netter claims that “no  other company is connecting paid video to the marketing cloud. Innovid uses data provided by DSP and DMP platforms to personalize video campaigns, and leverages that data to engage targeted audiences in meaningful ways at scale. We are also sending product interest and consideration data back to the DMPs, helping marketers to expand customer segmentation inside their DMP.”

Conagra Brands is one of the first brands to explore data-driven video across all channels with Innovid. “We believe it’s more important than ever to develop ongoing customer journeys throughdata-driven cross-channel marketing experiences,” said Heather Dumford, marketingdirector at Conagra Brands. “We’re excited to put Innovid’s new marketing capabilitiesinto action so we can more creatively incorporate video into the customer journeyequation.”

The integrations with marketing cloud companies further strengthen Innovid’s position as a leader in video advertising and marketing technology, and provides marketers with the most seamless and effective way possible to engage consumers everywhere they consume content, while providing real-time analytics.
