illumin, the new advertising automation platform from AcuityAds

How does illumin® work?

For years, marketers plan consumer journeys in stages that enter black box advertising platforms, essentially shredding the entire plan. With illumin, all this changes. illumin is Advertising Automation technology that allows advertisers to see the entire process to plan and activate omnichannel campaigns and see results on the same platform.

illumin allows advertisers to follow the consumer journey of your audience step by step to achieve conversion. illumin is automated advertising like you’ve never seen it before. You can watch the full launch event with our CEO and co-founder, Tal Hayek, accompanied by Seraj Bharwani, CSO and one of the greatest specialists in digital marketing.


The platform is based on three fundamental aspects: first, a simple “drag & drop” interface to create your strategy; second, creating a journey intelligently based on the interests of the audience; and third, the use of powerful insights capable of guaranteeing that the audience is reached when it is most willing to convert interest into purchase.
