Smartly.io, the leading social advertising automation platform for creative and performance marketers, today announced Ad Ranking, a new capability within its insights offering. Already unifying creative, media, and data to break down silos across creative and performance teams, Ad Ranking now allows advertisers to quickly identify both top and bottom-performing ads with a visual analysis that can better inform future creative direction and optimize performance in the next wave of advertising engagement.
As audiences become more opaque and more difficult to target, brands need to rely more on relevant and personalized creative delivered in the right place at the right time – instead of focusing solely on the best-performing target audience. This new Ad Ranking feature enables advertisers to test creative variations and quickly identify what's working (and what's not). Advertisers can then pivot quickly and put those insights into action with Smartly.io's all-in-one reporting view.
"Smartly.io's new Ad Ranking feature has cut the time it takes to glean insights about our ad performance," said Freya Gordon, Senior Performance Marketing Executive at Huel. "The visual representation of performance has been especially useful to our creative team, which sometimes struggles to cut through the numbers."
"Data privacy continues to play an increasingly important role in digital advertising, and creative is quickly emerging as the answer to an evolving industry where personalization and privacy must intersect," said Kristo Ovaska, CEO and co-founder, Smartly.io. "Advertisers need to bridge the gap between creative, media, and data to test what's resonating across all buyer journey touchpoints. This is critical for optimizing both in-flight and future ad campaigns in a seamless, agile, and automated way – freeing up marketing teams for more creativity and ideation to build trusted connections with their consumers."
In addition to the Ad Ranking solution, Smartly.io's full insights offering allows advertisers to:
Leverage visual insights to inform data-driven creative planning with Ad Ranking charts. Ad Ranking Views allow users to visualize top-performing ads quickly. They can choose a ranking metric and any additional filters (bid goal, creative type, etc.) to surface which ads contribute to business goals as a means of helping creative teams inform their planning.
Build and measure cross-platform customer business KPIs. Build custom metrics and measure against specific metrics or attribution windows across social platforms. Users can leverage a central location to quickly manage and update these customer expressions, preventing errors when deployed across multiple users and/or reports. Users can also quickly and easily reuse custom metrics to reduce time and friction when building new reports.
Integrate first- and third-party data sources to optimize against important metrics. Advertisers can pull data from a range of sources – social platforms to Google Analytics to Search Ads 360 to Adobe Analytics and more – providing in-the-moment analytics to inform strategies around budgets, bids, and ads.
Measure incremental revenue with statistical significance built-in. Ad Studies allow users to test the performance of almost any property of Facebook marketing scientifically by running Split, Lift, and Multi-Cell Lift Tests. Statistical Significance estimates how much test budget is needed to get meaningful results and then compare performance with any KPI.
Powering beautifully effective ads, Smartly.io automates every step of social advertising to unlock greater performance and creativity.
ADVERTISER CAMPAIGN MANAGEMENT
Boatim | January 28, 2021
Boatim Inc., an data-driven, online marketplace center for buying and selling boats and yachts anywhere on the world, presents its new digital brand advertising campaign. The campaign addresses to the worldwide boating community as a component of the progressing boating boom, initially catalyzed by the pandemic a year ago. Demand keeps on developing this year as basic requirements remain: COVID-free activities that give a break from stress, and all things being equal, give fun and exercise, such as being out on the water—particularly in the upcoming year's summer season 2021.
"Boating has always meant freedom and independence. But especially now for first-time boat buyers, who'd never considered buying a boat. A new generation of captains are now getting immersed in the seafaring culture", says Patrick Burkert, Boatim's Chief Marketing Officer. Boatim will publish the campaign in February on all major digital advertising networks, as well as social media marketing channels including YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. For the US and European rollout, the brand will initially run on a wide array of both established and new social networks and media channels, with a variety of programming, subsequently optimizing to those that perform the best.
Permission.io | October 11, 2021
Permission.io, the leading provider of permission-based advertising, announced the development of their Demand Side Platform (DSP), Permission Ads.
The patent-pending, state-of-the-art ad-buying platform offers advertisers a new way to run consent-based ad campaigns offering consumers cryptocurrency rewards in the form of ASK digital currency, in exchange for their data.
Permission Ads enables advertisers to allocate ASK and reward users for engaging with advertisements and sharing first-party data. The DSP will also allow Permission to serve advertisements beyond its own platform and across the open web, giving permission-based advertising far more reach and allowing the Permission ad infrastructure to be fully integrated with major supply partners and publishers worldwide.
"The advertising industry is at a crossroads as it leaves behind intrusive data-collecting technologies and strives to build trust with consumers. We're proud to be developing a solution to bring the digital ad experience into the modern age for both consumers and advertisers, Data is the most valuable asset in the world. It's time consumers get their cut."
said Charlie Silver, CEO of Permission.io
The advertising landscape is shifting as privacy becomes an increasingly important issue. Permission Ads is the first DSP built on a foundation of asking for consent. This unique exchange of value unlocks performance in key conversion and ROAS metrics that is unparalleled in the media buying industry today.
Permission Ads is fully compliant with relevant privacy laws including GDPR, CCPA and LGBR, because it is based on consent - it is inherently designed to meet the requirements for any new data privacy laws implemented.
Moreover, the upcoming deprecation of the third-party cookie, the technology that has powered the marketing industry for decades, is leaving advertisers scrambling for new ways to collect valuable data and successfully target key audiences. A permission-based, first-party data-based advertising model is a path forward to a cookieless future. It enables advertisers to build trust as they collect information to craft targeted campaigns while giving consumers the chance to benefit from the booming data-based economy.
Permission Ads' benefits to advertisers include:
Incentivizing audiences through a global digital currency, ASK
Staying ahead of regulatory changes
Driving conversions and increase return on ad spend (ROAS) by generating actionable first-party data
Validating user identity to eliminate wasted ad spend
Building trust and long-term loyalty with key audiences
Permission Ads' benefits to consumers include:
Returning data ownership and control to consumers and enabling them to monetize it
Rewarding consumers for their time and data by enabling them to:
Grant permission for engagement and access to their data
Earn ASK, a simple-to-use digital and liquid reward, by engaging with relevant ads and receiving a more tailored and customized digital experience'
Receive targeted and relevant ads
Permission.io is the leading provider of permission-based advertising.

Advertisers reward consumers with ASK for interacting with brands and content, building loyalty and trust.
