Acquisition accelerates Impact’s market leadership position in publisher partnership technology
Impact, the global leader in partnership automation today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Trackonomics Ltd, the leading supply-side platform (SSP) designed for publishers’ commerce-driven content. This acquisition enhances Impact’s Partnership Cloud publisher technology capabilities.
For some of the largest and most recognizable names in digital commerce transformation, Trackonomics provides full-funnel revenue attribution at the page and the link level - telling publishers exactly how every page is generating income or losing it. This technology enables publishers to make better and quicker decisions: what to write about and who to partner with across all segments and networks in the industry. It’s also clearly resonating among publishers as Trackonomics has doubled its revenue and client roster in the past 12 months.
"The consumer backlash against disruptive and let’s face it, annoying ads, has led to Google’s upcoming changes to tracking cookies and Apple’s privacy updates, which most would agree is a move in the right direction...unless you ask marketers," said David. A. Yovanno, CEO at Impact. "But content publishers have innovated new commerce-driven content formats that introduce a degree of authenticity that has been missing in traditional advertising. Brands now have opportunities to leverage that consumer trust through partnerships with these content publishers."
The most successful publishers maintain their audience’s trust by adhering to their own integrity standards and ensuring the brand or product they endorse aligns with their publication and most importantly, audience.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Impact - a company that has technology and innovation in its very foundation, and a strong global presence that can bring Trackonomics to new publishers across the globe," said Hanan Maayan, CEO at Trackonomics. "Together, we will continue to build game changing products for influencers and commerce-centric publishers, work to reduce deal friction and increase volume and velocity across our industry."
Impact has led the partnerships category creation, adding 577 new clients in FY2020 and, in the past few years, has enhanced its platform offerings through the acquisitions of Mediarails, a partnerships-based CRM platform, and, more recently, Activate, an influencer marketing platform.
