Marin Software to Release Full Support for New Facebook Ad Campaign Structure

Facebook Campaign Structure Updates Will Streamline Marketers' Workflow Within the Marin Software Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) -  Marin Software (NYSE: MRIN), provider of a leading Revenue Acquisition Management platform for advertisers and agencies, today announced it will support Facebook's new ad campaign structure. Marin will release full support of the new campaign structure March 14th.

News Facts:

  • Previously, Facebook ad campaigns were arranged in a two-level hierarchy: campaigns and ads. To provide marketers a better way to organize, measure and optimize ad campaigns, Facebook introduced a three-tiered structure composed of campaigns, ad sets and ads.
  • Marin Software has been working on developing support of Facebook's new ad campaign structure since October 2013 and will release full support on March 14th. As with all Facebook advertisers, Marin customers' existing Facebook campaigns will be migrated to the new structure automatically.
  • The Marin Software platform utilizes a three-tiered campaign structure for search-engine marketing (SEM) and display advertising. With Facebook adopting a similar three-level structure, digital marketers that advertise across search, display and Facebook can gain additional workflow efficiencies and analytic insights through the Marin platform.

Quote:

"Today's digital marketer rarely limits their ad program to a single channel," said Matt Ackley, chief marketing officer at Marin Software. "Facebook adopting the common ad taxonomy of search and display should help streamline campaign set-up, management, and reporting for multi-channel advertisers. Marin customers, in particular, will gain a new level of cross-channel congruency."
