Google Marketing Platform – DV360 & CM360


Feature Summary: The following document defines the process for creating a Google Marketing Platform (formerly DoubleClick) campaign within Kochava.

 

Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • GMP Link ID

 


Benefits for Advertisers:

Google’s App Attribution Partners integration leveraging Google Marketing Platform has the following benefits:

  • Improved Workflow: Easier workflow for setting up integrations with AAPs, leading to fewer manual errors & discrepancies.
  • Enhanced Data: Advertisers can now view the particular Display & Video 360/Campaign Manager 360 line item that is driving the conversion within the AAPs UI.
  • Increased Attribution: Combined with enhanced attribution for Campaign Manager 360 or Display & Video 360, advertisers can attribute conversions for additional sources, including web>app conversions, and app>app conversions that utilize web or hashed ID’s.

How it Works for Advertisers:

Link your apps with third-party app attribution tools to track conversions in mobile apps, such as installs and in-app actions. You can view reports about your conversions from your third-party service, or directly from Campaign Manager 360 and Display & Video 360.
View the legacy third-party conversion tracking article for configuring with other services in Campaign Manager 360.

Display and Video 360

NOTE: If you set up your links in Campaign Manager 360, you do not need to complete this section.

Part of the Google Marketing Platform, Display & Video 360 (formerly DoubleClick Bid Manager) is a tool that helps creative, data and media teams work together to execute end-to-end campaigns.

 

Important: This product is currently in a Google Beta program and requires Google Clearlisting/Approval to receive a valid link_id for this integration.

 

NOTE: Parallel tracking is now available for Video campaigns and is mandatory for DV360 campaigns. Parallel tracking brings users to a landing page directly while Kochava measurement happens in the background.
