REDMOND, Wash. (Nov. 17, 2015) — MediaAlpha, the leading advertising technology provider for vertical search media and LeadiD, the data and analytics platform with the deepest insight into the consumer buying journey, today announced the release of a new predictive consumer intent score specifically created for the insurance industry and available through the MediaAlpha Demand Platform. The jointly-developed product offering coincides with the announcement of a strategic partnership between MediaAlpha and LeadiD.
LeadiD’s industry-wide view of online shopping behavior equips marketers with a quantifiable measure of consumer intent that can easily be used to optimize real-time bidding strategies within the MediaAlpha Demand Platform. The consumer intent score is available exclusively as an advanced data solution on the MediaAlpha Demand Platform, the leading programmatic technology platform for buying vertical search media.
The Demand Platform offers advanced campaign management and optimization tools for marketers, and easily integrates with 1st and 3rd party data sources to enhance bidding strategies. The integration with LeadiD, which also provides access to LeadiD’s consumer intent scores in other industry verticals, is the latest platform innovation to bring marketers one step closer towards understanding the true level of intent for each consumer.
“We are excited to partner with LeadiD on this exclusive consumer intent score for our insurance marketing partners,” said Steve Yi, Co-founder and CEO of MediaAlpha. “MediaAlpha has helped disrupt the vertical search industry by introducing a new level of transparency and efficiency with our exchange platform. We believe the next wave of innovation will focus on advanced data solutions that take advantage of the transparency and control our platform provides. LeadiD’s unique data insights are a perfect complement, and we are pleased to offer this innovative score to our partners.”
LeadiD’s Consumer Intent Score represents the next evolution of predictive lead scoring. While existing scoring solutions do a good job of identifying the demographic characteristics of insurance shoppers, they fail to account for observed behaviors that are indicative of intent. This means that insurers are too often overlooking high-intent shoppers, causing them to miss significant engagement opportunities. The Consumer Intent Score improves on those models by incorporating the real-time behaviors of consumers in every part of the consumer funnel.
“When it comes to converting shoppers into customers, shopping behaviors speak louder than everything else,” said Ross Shanken, Founder and CEO of LeadiD. “The Consumer Intent Score gives insurers the ability to identify, prioritize, and engage with shoppers who are most likely to move forward in the funnel. We are thrilled to partner with MediaAlpha in delivering this solution to the insurance industry.”
