Merkle Sokrati, the data-driven performance-marketing agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, has been recognized for its achievement on YouTube for Performance reaching a 100% client-adoption rate.

Over the last few years, YouTube has emerged as a strong performance platform, with the launch of several new formats including TrueView and Universal App Campaigns (UAC). TrueView for Action uses prominent Calls To Actions (CTAs) and headlines, encouraging audiences to visit websites and explore the product or service, share their contact information, and take other actions valuable to the business. Through machine learning, UAC provides a simple and easy solution to reach the right audience across all of Google’s channels. Google can combine signals, data, and performance metrics to automatically make adjustments to campaigns quickly, and take advantage of buying opportunities.

During the last four months, Google India and Merkle Sokrati combined efforts to accelerate adoption of YouTube for Action in the Indian market. Anubhav Sonthalia, CEO Merkle Sokrati added, “We are committed as always to lead the way in incorporating any innovation that can help our customers. Over the last year, we have seen YouTube emerge as a strong performance platform. As the leading performance agency in the country, we wanted to ensure that all our clients are leveraging the full power of innovative formats like TrueView for Performance, and we are excited to see 100% of our clients are already betting on this format.”
Commenting on this, Aditya Swamy, Head of Agency Partnerships, Google India, said, “We collaborated closely with the Merkle Sokrati team to set up integrated client on-boarding with custom performance creatives from IgnitionLabs using the Search-Up approach, and bespoke measurement solutions. It’s exciting to see the speed at which Merkle Sokrati’s clients have adopted YouTube for Performance, and I am looking forward to seeing our teams redefining performance video advertising excellence.”
