What makes Turn different?

Insights | Every interaction with mobile apps, web content, streaming video, or a social network creates valuable new consumer data. Information about who they are, their product preferences, their purchasing patterns, and maybe even their geographic location. Turn centralizes all this data on our massive platform, blends in real-time media data—then mines it all for clear insights that drive successful marketing relationships.

ROI | Data-driven insights work with Turn’s patented real-time algorithms and lightning-fast execution platform, helping marketers deliver the right message on the best media channel at the right moment in time. The result? Superior campaign performance that exceeds expectations and delivers better ROI than any other marketing platform. One large consumer advertiser has experienced 80 percent YoY revenue growth for three straight years, and attributes this outstanding performance to their use of the Turn platform.

Control | In a world where consumer attention bounces among a multitude of devices and content sources, Turn is a unifying force. A single login puts the marketer in control, providing a powerful dashboard of all cross-channel digital marketing activities.
