illumin is Advertising Automation



For far too long, a gap has existed between the planning and the execution of digital advertising campaigns.

Marketers plan their media in three phases: awareness, engagement, and conversion. What happens next? That plan is sent to the digital advertising team who spend dozens of hours setting up line item tactics inside an advertising platform. This team is essentially shredding the entire plan by executing against individual messages instead of the entire consumer journey.

illumin® was developed by AcuityAds to radically reimagine the future of advertising. illumin is a natural interface to streamline advertising and marketing programs, allowing brands to better guide users through the consumer journey.
