Zaius Now Automates Google Customer Match & Facebook Custom Audiences, For Free

zaius segment sync facebook

Boston-based Zaius, which has been operating in somewhat stealth mode until now, is adding a free version of its behavioral marketing engine that will allow marketers to apply behavioral targeting to Facebook custom audiences and Google customer match campaigns.

Currently, managing lists and segments for Facebook and Google are manual tasks. The Zaius platform brings automation to list uploads while applying behavioral segmentation such as “First Time Buyer Likely To Repeat” or “At Risk Loyal Customer”.

Zaius creates these segments using behavior signals from across all channels, including email, Web, mobile, and social. Once the segments are created, Zaius sends only those segments that resemble a marketers’ best customers and engaged users. Marketers can then automate look-alike or similar audiences in Facebook and Google based on very targeted segments of loyal users.

“Analyzing behavior is the lifeblood of any B2C company, without it it’s hard to know what’s working,” Mark Gally, Zaius CEO, told Marketing Land, “but marketers have never had an overall tool set to own behavioral marketing.”

Zaius, currently used by a number of brand name retailers and B2C brands, launched roughly a year ago with the goal of creating that tool set and making behavioral marketing easy, said Gally, by phone last week.

Zaius is designed to allow marketers to focus on content and messaging instead of manually piecing together data across point solutions and siloed networks.

The premium version of Zaius enables lifecycle analysis to apply targeting and messaging across all channels.

I asked Gally how separate teams — say email and search — are using Zaius. He answered, “As a common platform. Zaius unifies data across channels, so everyone is looking at the same data.”

Asked how Zaius works with existing analytics packages, Gally said that because Zaius provides more detail on behavior and lifecycle, some marketers have turned to Zaius exclusively. “Everyone has Google Analytics,” he says, “but some find they just look at it less and less after using Zaius.”

Google and Facebook customer synching is included in the new freemium version. The premium version starts at $1,750 per month.

Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.

What will happen to influencer marketing if Instagram ‘Likes’ go away?

In April, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong discovered Instagram was testing removing “Like” counts on posts. At the time, an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch it was not a public test, but an internal prototype and that the company was “exploring” new ways to reduce pressure on Instagram.The possibility that Instagram – a primary platform for influencer marketing – may potentially eliminate “Likes” could impact the influencer community, causing brands to question whether or not an influencer has enough sway to contribute to the brand’s marketing efforts. Without an outward facing metric such as “Likes,” influencers would have to rely on other resources to prove their content is worthwhile – once such resource: influencer marketing agencies.Good news for agencies“I do see it as a good thing for influencer marketing agencies and platform providers,” said Leah Logan, VP of media product strategy and marketing for Collective Bias.Logan’s influencer marketing agency works with a numbe…
