Fluent, LLC, an IDI company (NYSE: IDI) and industry leader in people-based digital marketing and customer acquisition, today announced a partnership with LiveRamp, the leading provider of data onboarding and connectivity services. The partnership will extend the reach of Fluent's first party data assets and on-the-fly audience creation capability to all channels including display, mobile, social, video, and addressable television.

"We are extremely excited to be announcing our partnership with LiveRamp," said Ryan Schulke, CEO of Fluent. "Our integration will extend the reach of Fluent's immensely powerful, real-time audience identification and creation capabilities, and make it easy for marketers across any vertical to target their best customers, with precision, across every device and channel."

With Fluent's AudienceNow™ for LiveRamp, for the first time, marketers will be able to build and target any custom audience that they need by tapping into Fluent's first-party data reservoir of over 120 million U.S. consumers and its proprietary survey platform which surveys over 500,000 American adults and generates over 5.5 million unique survey responses every day. These audiences can be onboarded into any of the hundreds of marketing platforms integrated with LiveRamp for privacy-safe targeting across virtually every channel and device.

AudienceNow offers marketers several key advantages. First, it is designed entirely for new customer acquisition, as opposed to the retargeting of consumers within pre-existing CRM databases. Second, it enables marketers to target audiences using highly dynamic data that is collected and modeled in real-time, rather than targeting based on static offline and online first and third-party datasets. Pilot campaigns have demonstrated substantial lifts in performance compared to standard targeting within DSPs, with an average 123.5% lift in click-through rates, and 144.1% lift in effective-Cost-per-Acquisition.

"Savvy marketers are constantly on the lookout for high value data sources that deliver superior results," said Travis May, President and GM of LiveRamp. "We are excited to activate Fluent's data across the digital marketing ecosystem, so more companies can benefit from a people-based approach to marketing that delivers better consumer experiences and higher ROI."

This announcement coincides with RampUp 2016, the premier conference for leaders in adtech hosted by LiveRamp.
