New integration connects 100% of phone calls to keywords for sophisticated enterprise search marketing campaigns.

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 19, 2016-- Marchex (NASDAQ:MCHX), a mobile advertising analytics company, today announced a new integration with Adobe Media Optimizer that delivers better return on advertising spend for enterprise search marketers that rely upon inbound phone calls to drive sales. The new integration is the only solution to deliver 100% keyword attribution for calls placed directly from paid search ads for an unlimited number of keywords and any campaign structure.

In addition, Marchex Search Analytics delivers automated insights on every phone call directly into Adobe Media Optimizer for each keyword, including call outcomes and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) inputs.

With full keyword-level call attribution from all calls including those that originate from call extensions and call-only campaigns, we improve our ability to be smart and efficient with our search engine marketing.”

The Marchex Analytics platform measures offline sales, audiences and consumer intent from digital advertisements across every channel and device. By partnering with Marchex, Adobe Media Optimizer can deliver strategic insights that connect the dots between paid search and offline sales to drive higher levels of advertising performance and consumer engagement.
