Digital transformation for media organizations

Give each and every reader the content they want with real-time personalization from Lytics

Get to know your customers better than ever

Digitally native companies like Buzzfeed, Spotify, and Netflix have raised the bar for media and entertainment organizations. They deliver truly personalized experiences--the right stories, songs, and shows--to their customers. Companies that fail to meet this standard will be left behind.

But traditional third-party data isn’t up to the task. GDPR, CCPA, and even browsers are restricting companies’ ability to use third-party data, and research shows it doesn’t drive revenue like first-party behavioral data.

Lytics customer data platform can help.


What is Lytics?


Built for marketers, Lytics customer data platform (CDP) collects and analyzes first-party behavioral and affinity data based on the actions your customers take in your mobile app, online ads, website and marketing emails.

Then its machine-learning decision engine gives your marketing team the insights they need to deliver personalized marketing experiences in real time through your digital channels.

How Lytics works

Creating a customer 360 is the first step in building a CDP--but it’s not the last. Some vendors might argue that collecting all the data is enough, but Lytics doesn’t stop there.

Once you install Lytics’ JavaScript tag through your tag manager, you’ll start collecting first-party behavioral data. Then Lytics’ decision engine uses self-improving machine learning algorithms to apply data science principles to your data to deliver valuable insights to marketers.

You might decide to deploy Subscribe Now modals for unknown visitors or customize content recommendations based on affinity data. Whatever your choice, Lytics executes the right experience through your marketing technology stack.

What makes Lytics different?

Built for marketers

Lytics puts the power of data science in marketers’ hands, so they can deliver on marketing goals: increasing ROAS, improving customer LTV, and boosting revenue.

1st-party behavioral data

Your customers tell you what they want with every tap, scroll, and click in your app, website, and emails. Lytics collects this data, which offers more predictive value than traditional third-party demographic data.

Content affinity

Lytics tags content and tracks users’ interactions with it, so it can accurately predict what other content--or products--will be appealing to them, then offers up timely, relevant recommendations, deepening engagement and generating revenue.

Actionable insight

Data for data’s sake is just digital clutter. Lytics’ machine-learning decision engine analyzes the data and offers insights within a week, so you can make strategic decisions that improve ROAS, conversions, and engagement.

Lookalike modeling

Define customer and prospect segments that you want to replicate, and let Lytics’ machine learning algorithms identify similar audiences to target with appropriate experiences across your martech stack.
