Segment List Export

We know it's important to you to easily access all the details on your segments quickly.

That's why we've moved the Segment List from account analytics into the Segments menu. You can now export and download the details on your audience directly under Segmentation. We've also included more details, such as Segment Description and Segment Logic.

Hourly/Daily Activity Report

We’ve created a new report to help you plan which times and days of the week will deliver the most effective advertising campaigns.

The report, Hourly/Daily Activity, can be found in both the Audience and Campaign sections of Insights. It shows you which time of day or day of the week users from particular segments or campaigns are most likely to interact with your site.

Lookalike Modelling Update

Sometimes, our customers have a need for more precision in lookalike modelling. This can be the case when expanding upon audiences with very niche interests, or audiences that could be easily skewed by 'outlier' segments that aren't the norm.

We're therefore pleased to provide transparency into your lookalike models, and greater control over their creation.

New options let you choose which segments you want to include or exclude when building your lookalike models. Once built, new 'Weight' metrics also show you exactly how much influence each segment has on the model - so you can be sure you're building and amplifying the exact audience you want to reach.

Segment Link Sharing

We heard your feedback - you want to be able to direct colleagues to Permutive segments quickly and easily.

To help with this, we've enabled segment link sharing. Simply open the segment you want to share, copy the browser URL, and send it on to be sure that your fellow Permutive user is looking in the right place.

Live Audience Sizes

Having quick access to details on the proportions of your audiences can save you time and energy, especially when building out a campaign or responding to an RFP. We've therefore been working on improving the way you can retrieve this information.

We're happy to share that up-to-date indications of your segment audience sizes are now available at a glance. Where you previously had to manually select a segment and use the 'audience size estimator', you instead can now see the stats - number of users, and percentage of total audience - for all of your segments, updated every 30 minutes, direct in your Segments dashboard.

Easy-To-Use Third-Party Segment Search

When building a segment using third-party data, it can be difficult and time consuming to pinpoint the right third-party segments. For example, if you want to build a 'music lovers' audience, to find relevant music segments you have to manually click through each provider and add relevant music segments individually.

That's why we're pleased to release third-party segment search today. Now you can use free text search on up to 45,000 different third-party data segments from various providers. We'll match relevant segments and you can select which ones you want to use, saving time when creating segments using third-party data.

AppNexus Ad Server Integration

As part of our goal to increase targetable inventory for customers, we want to increase the options publishers have for targeting Permutive segments across different ad servers. Currently we have a full integration with Doubleclick For Publishers (DFP), and over the coming months we're going to be adding additional ad server integrations.

As part of this work, we're pleased to announce a new integration with AppNexus's Ad Server. Permutive now integrates with AppNexus to target ad impressions using Permutive segments and build segments using impression and click data from AppNexus. Since Permutive updates in real-time, our integration enables you to target users from the very first time they arrive on-site.

You can learn more about which events we collect, how to setup the integration or how to use our new targeting via our support docs.

Faster Dashboards

When building a story around audience segments for sales pitches, speed matters. We had feedback from customers that our segment index, list and overlap dashboards weren’t delivering analysis quickly enough to shape this narrative.

For this reason - and as part of a larger project to improve the performance of Permutive’s analytics - we’ve made major improvements to the performance of our segment index, list and overlap dashboards. This optimization has resulted in these dashboards loading at least 5x faster, making it a lot quicker to build stories around your audience segments for sales pitches.

Faster Audience Estimations

Often a customer will experiment with and sanity-check audience sizes using the estimator in our segment builder. When you’re consistently experimenting with segments to reach or validate the desired audience size, latency is frustrating.

For this reason, we’ve optimized the way that audience estimations are built and made it 3x faster. This will significantly reduce the time it takes to respond to an RFP or deliver on a campaign.

Persistent Dashboard Filters

When a customer is trying to compare the same filters across two different dashboards in our analytics it’s manual and error-prone work to have to constantly update filters when switching between dashboards.

For this reason - and as part of a larger project to improve the performance of Permutive’s analytics - we’ve made filters persistent when you switch between dashboards. This gives a consistent view across dashboards, and removes the risk of error when trying to compare the same filters across different dashboards.
