– Case Study / Brands Served 17 © 2016 IDI, Inc. All rights reserved. Fluent’s precise targeting and unique ability to pre-qualify consumers before serving ads to them enabled us to better engage with our most valuable customers at scale. Bjorn Leivgold Director of CRM, Loyalty & Payments Marketing BACKGROUND Western Union—one of the largest money-transfer companies in the world—needed to raise awareness of its service offerings. Wanted to grow its list of email subscribers for their CRM programs. Prior to working with Fluent, engagement amongst new customers acquired with third party vendors was low. CAMPAIGN Fluent delivered targeted content via display ads to consumers who explicitly stated that they had utilized money transfer services in the past. Fluent’s lookalike modeling and optimization technology was applied to ramp up volume by identifying and targeting consumers that most resembled their best customers and were most likely to utilize US services. RESULTS 8X improvement in open rates and engagement compared to previous efforts. Ongoing growth of 15X in these key metrics in the first four months. Western Union is now expanding its program and including additional advertising effort for their US outbound to Central and South American business. Just a few examples of the over 500 brands served by Fluent:
