“illumin really looks at the customer journey across various points of entry. It allows us to target consumers appropriately whether they’re at the beginning of searching or much further down the funnel — making for more meaningful interactions.”
“Within about six months on illumin our cost of acquisition was down ~60% and kept going lower. We’re securing more clients because we know who our customer is, how to attract them and then how to convert them, thanks to illumin.”
“The illumin AI was above benchmark in delivering incremental return on advertising spend. Additionally, we were able to determine consumers who went through an entirely connected journey had a higher AOV than users who were exposed to a singular stage. This would have been much harder to uncover without the illumin journey canvas.”
“I’ve used several programmatic platforms and this is the most user-friendly and logical. The lay out minimizes user errors and it is easy to upload and manage campaigns. Reporting is complete, fast and intuitive. The customer service is top-notch.”
