// Technology

We're learning as fast as the machines.

The Media Activation Team constantly develops new tools and methods for improving and automating Media Activation in a complex advertising ecosystem. Examples include - but are not limited to - the following:



Social platforms insist that optimization be carried out using measurement within the walled garden. PACMAN is the tool to optimize social using a cross-channel dataset which takes a brick out of the wall.


Best Practice Checker

The fundamentals never go out of style. Be proud of the 150+ point best practice checklist and deploy a series of scripts to ensure they’re implemented at all times via automation.


Cross-Channel Pacing Docs

Manually checking the pacing of a campaign across all platforms every day is a time consuming process and is prone to errors which could result in an incorrect action being taken or and therefore budgets being under or overspent. Cross-Channel Pacing Docs automatically pulls campaign data from a range of platforms on a daily basis to calculate the pacing and provide all teams with an instant overview of how their campaigns are delivering.


Project Insight

Pulling detailed reports from AdWords, especially cross-account and for different conversion events, is time consuming and awkward. Project Insight gives users fast and easy access to the information they need to get the best out of their campaigns. This is not only down the to speed at which data is returned from the API, but also by showing where the pockets of strong performance lie, and which inventory or targeting tactics should be disregarded.



Having the right keywords is the cornerstone of any search campaign but identifying which potential keywords are safe and valuable is a difficult task. Pieno scans opportunities against current account keywords, banned list and negatives and works out which keywords to add and where to add them, allowing us to maximize coverage without incurring additional brand risk.



There are lots of third party tools to optimize bids but none to optimize ad copy itself. In marketing meritocracy, it's more important than ever for the search copy to stand out in the crowd. Yalla scores each of the search accounts against a series of rules allowing  to apply the same scientific rigor to optimizing copy as we do to our bidding structure.
