_Apex_ campaign highlight

  • For our client, Burke Williams, we recently tested two different programmatic display partners with identical optimization events and budget - StackAdapt and APEX. With APEX, we saw a 14.6% increase in total impressions compared to StackAdapt, as well as the platform's strong ability to drive conversions despite having a link click optimization event. The APEX campaign drove a total of 238 conversions for a ROAS of 736% while the StackAdapt campaign only drove 1 conversion. Based on these results, we’ve since decided to focus all programmatic display efforts through APEX, which has delivered strong conversion and engagement results.

_Capabilities_ new and upcoming

  • We are working to onboard Dstillery to add new custom audience building tools to APEX. Dstillery allows APEX to tap into a variety of powerful custom audience segments including AI powered 1st-party data/search keyword-based look-alikes, privacy-safe healthcare patient audiences, contextual targeting and their full suite of pre-built audience segments.

  • We are currently exploring alternative DSPs for our gambling clients due to the high amount of restrictions imposed by our current platforms.
