ALEX AND ANI Selects Visual IQ to Maximize Return on Advertising Spend

Leading Attribution Provider Will Help Lifestyle Retailer Measure and Optimize Media Spend Across Digital Channels

Needham, Mass, April 13, 2016 - Visual IQ, the leading cross channel marketing attribution software provider, today announced that ALEX AND ANI, a popular eco-conscious jewelry and accessories brand and an Inc. 500 Company, has selected Visual IQ’s advanced attribution solution to improve marketing efficiency. ALEX AND ANI will implement Visual IQ’s IQ Intelligence Suite to measure the true impact of marketing efforts and optimize return on advertising spend (ROAS) across a growing number of digital channels.

Prior to selecting Visual IQ, ALEX AND ANI measured the performance of marketing spend through a last-click model, a methodology that makes it difficult to measure the true impact of marketing efforts across channels. ALEX AND ANI sought an advanced measurement solution that would allow the popular Rhode Island-based jewelry and accessories brand to more effectively attribute conversion and revenue credit to specific marketing channels and campaigns. ALEX AND ANI selected Visual IQ for its full spectrum attribution capabilities and its robust analytics support.

Using a multi-dimensional, algorithmic modeling approach, Visual IQ’s IQ Intelligence Suite provides brands and their agency partners with a science-backed understanding of how each marketing channel, campaign and tactic contributes to overall marketing objectives. ALEX AND ANI will utilize the IQ Envoy product to measure and optimize the impact that each marketing touchpoint has on conversions and brand engagement. The retailer will also deploy the IQ Sage product to incorporate spend recommendations into its digital media planning and buying efforts. At the outset, ALEX AND ANI will leverage Visual IQ’s advanced attribution to measure and optimize its online display, social, search, site direct, affiliate, email marketing initiatives, video and product listing ads.

“For today’s retailers, especially a growing one like ALEX AND ANI, spending money on the channels, campaigns and tactics that drive actual business value is more important than ever,” said Manu Mathew, co-founder and CEO, Visual IQ. “Visual IQ is proud to partner with ALEX AND ANI to provide the insights they need to make the most of their marketing budget.”
