Leading Global Media Firm on Forbes 2000: Adopts Journey by CAKE

Cloud-based, Marketing Intelligence Platform Extends Visibility of the Customer Journey


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – January 18, 2018 – Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE today announced that a Forbes 2000 Media Company has selected Journey by CAKE enterprise software solution to improve the efficacy of its advertising spend across digital channels including paid search, social, display, affiliate and direct. Journey is a cloud-based platform for collecting, analyzing and acting on digital marketing insights in real-time. The enterprise solution allows customers to expand and unify, on a single dashboard, a view of its return on advertising spend (ROAS) metrics and keyword performance, plus delivers the marketing intelligence needed to transform anonymous consumers into known customers.

“Key steps of the customer journey has largely been overlooked in the past,’ said Santi Pierini, CAKE President and Chief Operating Officer of Accelerize. ‘Previous marketing tools for data collection and analysis have not provided accurate and actionable insights about the missing steps of the anonymous customer journey. However, with the extended view into vital customer interactions, Journey provides companies around the world with the real-time marketing intelligence needed to move unknown consumers to known customers.”

By choosing Journey, the global media company is now empowered with visibility into campaign performance and customer journeys to make truly data-driven decisions. The marketing intelligence platform replaces the firm’s manual spreadsheet process of data aggregation and reporting, enabling it to reduce time and steps that were formerly used to collect and analyze performance for marketing efforts. Real-time, actionable insights are now delivered into the hands of the firm’s decision makers by consolidating first-party data from various digital marketing channels into Journey’s central dashboard. With Journey, the firm can also access media cost data to see ROAS metrics across channels, monitor keyword performance, leverage custom reporting and multichannel attribution capabilities, plus optimize landing page performance.


Digital ad revenue in the United States reached $40.1 billion in the first half of 2017. That’s both a 23 percent year-over-year increase and an all-time high, according to the latest Internet Advertising Revenue Report. The report was prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers for the Interactive Advertising Bureau, a trade group of online advertisers and publishers.

“As digital ad spend continues to climb marketers need to be armed with a wider range of insights into vital customer interactions,’ said Pierini. ‘Our enterprise marketing intelligence platform plays an important role in visualizing the stages of the customer journey that moves unknown consumers to known customers. By establishing an environment with a more complete view into the customer journey, we enable top global firms to confidently grow their digital marketing investments for maximum ROAS.”
