Mediaplex Introduces Industry First: Launches Best Practices in Path to Conversion Reporting Package


Clients Benefit from Summary-Level Insights Based on over a Year of Analytic Engagements and Development


WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 17, 2008--ValueClick, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: VCLK), technology division, Mediaplex, today announced the availability of online, near real-time reports which were developed to complement Mediaplex's Path to Conversion data and analytic services offering. Through extensive custom client engagements, Mediaplex determined the best and most actionable views into the Path to Conversion data, and used these findings to develop the new online reports. As a result, these reports present data in a way that makes it easy for clients to gain immediate insights into how to best improve campaign performance as opposed to having to sift through massive amounts of raw data.


Mediaplex introduced Path to Conversion more than a year ago to help clients gain deeper insight into their data and obtain a more holistic view of their online marketing programs by evaluating performance beyond the "last click wins" methodology. With the new reporting package, Mediaplex clients are empowered with summarized, near real-time Path to Conversion reports that are easy to understand, enabling them to better evaluate the performance of their media buys and make quick and informed decisions regarding how to adjust their spend on marketing programs across all the channels they are tracking.


"Since we introduced Path to Conversion to clients last year, we have experienced a tremendous growth in the demand for the data and services we offer as part of this solution. We wanted to extend the benefits of this data to a far greater number of our clients in a way that makes it easy for them to act upon findings from the data," said Ann Hoey, general manager of Mediaplex. "By providing self-serve Path to Conversion reports, we are able to provide a deep level of data in a way that takes the challenge out of the analysis for our clients, helping them further improve their campaign performance for optimal results."


"Online Path to Conversion reporting has been a tremendous resource in helping us quickly view and understand all the activity in the conversion path," said John Ward, global director of online media at American Apparel. "The fact that we can get these reports on-demand enables us to be more flexible and proactive when making decisions regarding how to continuously improve performance across all of our marketing campaigns."
