Integration Enables ShopStyle to Mobilize a More Efficient Audience Targeting Approach
SAN FRANCISCO, April 11, 2016 – TruSignal and MediaMath recently launched a new campaign, through their expanded integration, which has shown strong results for ShopStyle, the digital shopping platform owned by POPSUGAR Inc. TruSignal, the leading provider of custom people-based audiences for digital advertising, and MediaMath, a global media and technology company, partnered to enable ShopStyle’s real-time access to TruSignal’s custom predictive audiences for retargeting campaigns, within the MediaMath TerminalOne Marketing Operating System™. Leveraging TruSignal’s innovative Direct Response Audience Filtering solution, MediaMath used the scores to improve impression targeting and bidding, which resulted in a 200% increase in conversions and a 60% decrease in cost per order.
ShopStyle was looking for ways to increase performance and was among the first to leverage an expanded integration between TruSignal and MediaMath. TruSignal integrated its proprietary on-demand predictive scoring platform directly into MediaMath’s platform to build a custom audience filter, a service available to all MediaMath customers. ShopStyle activated TruSignal’s audience filter to identify and avoid non-converters from its retargeting campaigns.To create the audience filter, TruSignal evaluated thousands of offline data points and created a custom scoring model based on a sample of ShopStyle’s desired customers. TruSignal then scored 220 million U.S. adults and identified people with low scores, those people highly unlikely to convert, to create the custom audience filter. The custom-built scores were loaded into MediaMath’s TerminalOne Marketing Operating System™ and applied to ShopStyle’s existing retargeting campaigns to influence its bidding strategy by informing what price should be paid for each impression, based on the scores. TruSignal’s audience filter was used to avoid bidding on consumers who would never buy.
ShopStyle was able to see a 200% increase in conversions and a 60% decrease in cost per order within the first 30 days. “We ran a side-by-side test and the audience filter led to a significant lift in conversions,” said Loren Simon, vice president of marketing at ShopStyle. “We’re excited to continue implementing the filtering technology across our retargeting efforts.”
“We are thrilled to be the first platform chosen to deploy TruSignal’s custom audience filtering solution. We are constantly committed to delivering significant returns to our clients via new and innovative audience targeting solutions, and, as in this case, we let the results speak for themselves, ” said Aruna Paramasivam, head of data and tech partnerships for MediaMath.
The connection of MediaMath’s online behavioral analytics with TruSignal’s offline profile analytics provides ShopStyle with the most comprehensive picture of its prospects. Furthermore, TruSignal’s audiences consist only of verified consumer profiles, which enable ShopStyle to target actual consumers across any channel and device.

Our predictive scoring platform, paired with MediaMath’s campaign management and existing analytics, delivers a truly innovative, data-driven solution to ShopStyle’s marketing team,” said TruSignal President David Dowhan.
