“We’ve got to use every piece of data and piece of information, and hopefully that will help us be accurate with our player evaluation. For us, that’s our life blood.” – Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland Athletics

Data is the new oil and it has become the driving force behind innovation across all industries...even sports! At Cuebiq, we are harnessing the power of location data to power our Audience, Attribution and Analytics tools. We take great pride in our patent pending SDK methodology, as it has allowed us to create the largest source of accurate and precise location data in the US. We now reach over 61MM unique devices, or 1 in 4 US Smartphone users. But where does this data come from and why does data privacy matter?

Bridge the Gap: How Marketers Can Gain Visibility In the Offline World

Apr 14, 2017 11:32:47 AM / by Valentina Bieser posted in Location Intelligence, Attribution, Mobile, offline, Transparency, Data, Online, Accuracy

As a marketer, understanding consumers’ behavior has always been of paramount importance to me.  Who are they, what are their passions and interests, which brands do they prefer…  Location data came to marketers as the holy grail, promising an unprecedented opportunity to understand audiences, help effectively connect with them, and ultimately measure the impact of marketing efforts.  However, the marketplace is filled with so many data providers and products that it has become a challenge for us marketers to identify the best data sources.  Which brings me to the elephant in the room, what should marketers be aware of when looking for the right data to help them bridge consumers’ online and offline worlds?  What matters and what should be disregarded?

CMO Digital Summit – Long Live Digital Highlights!

I had the pleasure of attending the annual Millward Brown Digital CMO Summit last week.  The theme of the conference was “Breakthrough.”  Highly relevant given the age we live in. This is a world with more ads and less attention, that now requires brands to build creative that not only reaches consumers across multiple channels and devices, but has the ability to stop them in their tracks.  With consumers seeing on average 132,130 ads per year or 362 a day, the conference highlighted the importance of content, building creative for a mobile first world, audience understanding and last but not least measurement.

Why I joined Cuebiq

Feb 9, 2017 11:37:23 AM / by Michael Della Penna posted in Cuebiq News, Audience Targeting, Location Intelligence, Attribution, Company

I’m excited to share the news that I have joined Cuebiq.  Well - I’ve actually been involved with the company for some time, beginning early last year.  I was first introduced to Cuebiq through the Angel Round Capital Fund, (thanks Jeff) in which I’ve been a Limited Partner since 2011.  The fund is a co-op of angel investors of sorts with the primary vision of investing in New York Metropolitan area early stage technology companies with strong growth potential.  As a member of the fund, you have the opportunity to invest additional capital alongside the fund, giving early stage companies the opportunity to raise significant capital.  As an active member, I also participated on the evaluation committee, selecting the best companies from those seen to move on to present to the general membership for investment.  I’ve probably seen and heard close to 500 hundred pitches over the last 6 years. While the fund has invested in some exciting companies -- including Kansas (acquired by AOL), UpNext (acquired by Amazon), Human Demand (acquired by Ignition One), YieldMo, Cirrus Data, Crowded and more -- I had yet to do an incremental investment.  That is until now (Cuebiq) and I wasn’t the only one.
