Onboarding & Activation

Get marketing in the moment.


    The speed at which you onboard and activate customer data makes the difference between delivering experiences customers want — or outdated and irrelevant messages they want to ignore. Signal’s continuous onboarding and real-time media activation allows you to target the right people at the right time, reducing ad waste while dramatically increasing the relevance of your advertising.

    How Onboarding Works with Signal

     

     

    Upload

    Offline customer data, e.g. from a CRM or ESP, is ingested via file upload or API integration.

     

    Match

    Offline data is matched to online IDs in a brand’s first-party ID graph to create customer profiles.

     

    Activate

    Pick the destination where your profiles will be activated, such as a DSP or social media ad platform. Signal will refresh your segments at one or multiple end points as audience data evolves.
