What is adhook.io?

adhook.io is a cross-channel advertising platform that helps marketers to be successful in search & social advertising.

To do so, adhook.io consolidates campaign management of the most used search & social ad networks into one platform. Our chat-based software acts as a virtual employee that assists in campaign creation, reporting, and optimization. 

We are a Swiss Startup based in Lucerne, supported by the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Google as part of their “Channel Sales Acceleration Program”.

The need for cross-channel advertising

Quickly searched for something on Google, switched to the Twitter timeline and watched a video on Instagram. The cross-channel use of digital content is natural today and happens every minute. As this is natural for us as users, it is important for businesses and brands.

Cross-channel advertising allows you to be present with ads at the right time where your target audience is moving.

Specifically, this refers to the delivery of paid content on different devices and different channels such as social media, search or display.

The goal of cross-channel advertising is to enable your audience across channels to move deeper into the acquisition funnel towards “buying” your product or service.

Why adhook.io?

Once your campaigns are active across multiple channels, it takes more time to get an overview and update the campaigns for optimization purposes. Where did I get the results yesterday? What costs have been incurred? Is there room for improvement?

To keep you on track, we created adhook.io. Our self-service platform brings the following key benefits into your daily work:

  • Simplified campaign management for Google Ads, Facebook Ads, LinkedIn Ads and Twitter Ads.
  • Improved campaign performance by automated optimizations.
  • More effective team collaboration thanks to individual process automation (e.g. campaign review).
  • Custom enterprise integrations using the adhook.io API.

As a virtual assistant, adhook.io works with your ad accounts. The start is really simple:

Overall reporting

With adhook.io you get all your search & social advertising statistics in one place.

In our campaign reporting dashboard, you can find all the needed data from ad to channel level in a few clicks. To get more information out of a campaign created in adhook.io, you can link your Google Analytics account.

Our system retrieves metrics from your Google Analytics data and maps them to your campaigns by UTM tags (e.g. Bounce Rate or Avg. Session Time). This way you get important information from different channels and the impact on your website directly in adhook.io’s reporting UI.
