Targetable has virtualized all of the operations of a digital ad agency into one simple, easy-to-use, SaaS platform, designed exclusively for retail clients. By using a unique blend of data together with an advanced AI algorithm, Targetable automatically generates digital marketing campaigns that are faster, cost exponentially less, and perform better than a traditional agency or any other human-centric solution.
Why is your company the best option to solve the problem you're solving?
We have created an easy to use application that simplifies the complicated process of placing local digital ads for retail. Our solution is built for scale and works for single operator SMBs all the way to large national chains with thousands of locations.
What nuggets of info make you interesting? Why do people care about what you're doing?
We have found that during COVID our customers are increasingly relying on our solution to reach new customers and make sure their communities know that they are open for takeout and delivery.
What else do you want us to know?
Early in our company history pre the launch of Targetable, we built a product called Watch and Win for Buffalo Wild Wings that would give promotions in real-time based on sporting events. For example when the Chicago Bears scored a touch down we would give free wings to everyone inside a Buffalo Wild Wings in Chicago.
