Havas Middle East had created a client-facing data platform—Automated Data Analytics Manager, or ADAM, which covered client onboarding, setting up targets, and reporting. However, ADAM lacked sophisticated tools to automate updated reports across various ad platforms. The team manually exported CSV files to create reports, which was a stressful, slow, and error-prone process. They also struggled to keep up with constant changes from various APIs. These frustrations incited the group’s search for an advanced platform to overhaul data integration and analysis to serve clients faster and more strategically.
Working to enhance ADAM’s capabilities, Adverity automatically gathered and transformed Havas’ data before it was sent to BiqQuery for storage. The combined data was used to monitor and optimize Twitter ad performance by comparing it to other ad platforms. This enabled the group to measure customer acquisition costs more accurately and empowered a more efficient budgeting plan.
With reliable data coming in from Adverity, Havas developed custom metrics for clients, including Cost per Quality View. This metric specifically captured the cost of video ads that were watched for longer than 50 percent or longer. Providing this level of granularity allowed the agency to fulfill a client’s particular marketing goals.
The professionals at Havas moved forward with fresh decisiveness, citing facts from a centralized data source to enable campaign optimizations and deliver updated reports. They no longer worried about inefficient budget allocation—the data guided decisions to maximize the best-performing ads and creatives. They were able to lower costs for Twitter ads while increasing ad views by 40% in just one month.
Adverity’s solution allowed for high-quality data to be readily available with just a few clicks. This boost in agility enabled faster reactions to sudden increases in campaign demands and provided Havas with a newfound tenacity and confidence in achieving client goals.
