Marchex And Marin Software Announce New Partnership To Help Advertisers Increase Return On Ad Spend

Marchex, Inc. (NASDAQ:MCHX), a leader in mobile performance advertising, today announced a new partnership with Marin Software (NYSE:MRIN), a leading Revenue Acquisition Management platform provider. The partnership will give agencies and advertisers powerful new insights into their ad campaigns to drive higher returns on ad spend.

By integrating Marchex’s Call Analytics product into Marin’s platform, advertisers will now be able to:

  • See which ads drive phone calls and understand how those phone calls generate revenue.
  • Access unique caller data.
  • Determine the search keywords or advertising impressions that generate phone calls, so budgets can be allocated accordingly.

“Businesses will now get a 360-view of their ad spend, not just for clicks, but for phone calls, which are growing at a rapid rate with the widespread adoption of mobile,” said Tim Graber, Marchex’s Senior Director of Product & Engineering. “Our partnership with Marin allows for greater transparency in advertising and effectively lifts the veil off of the opaque practices in media-buying. We want advertisers to know exactly how their ad dollars are being spent.”

Gagan Kanwar, Marin Software’s Director of Partnerships and Research, said advertisers and agencies will now be able to “accurately and easily connect the dots” between digital advertising campaigns and call-based conversions.

“We’re excited about the partnership and bringing superior performance to advertisers using the Marin and Marchex platforms,” Kanwar said. “Advertisers recognize their data is their advantage. Through Marin Connect™, we help clients uncover more revenue from online and offline data.”
