  • About Telmetrics for DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration


    The Telmetrics DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration can be used to gain attribution for phone calls/SMS conversations that are generated through display or banner ad campaigns.

    Simply put, the addition of offline activities like calls or texts centralized in DCM significantly improves a marketer’s campaign optimization capabilities including re-targeting, cross-sell and upsell opportunities.

  • This implementation is similar to our with Google AdWords, DoubleClick Search integrations, whereby a consumer click on an advertisement redirects them to the advertiser’s website where the Telmetrics DNI JavaScript has been deployed. When the consumer arrives on advertiser’s website we will:

    • create a DNI session and perform number replacement (if the website visit matches the configured DNI rules)

    • capture landing page URL parameters (Google Click id – gclid, DoubleClick Id - dcid, UTM source/keyword/content/campaign, etc.)

    Any phone call that occurs to the tracking number within the session’s match period will be linked to the session, and subsequently uploaded to a pre-configured DoubleClick Campaign Manager Floodlight activity.

    Once a floodlight activity has received conversions, they can be viewed within the DoubleClick Campaign Manager reporting dashboard. Users may organize their data by campaign/placement (what site hosted the banner)/creative (what banner ad drove the most clicks), Advertiser.

    Note that this integration is designed to gain attribution for calls that originate after someone has clicked on a display or banner ad and has arrived at the advertiser’s website. Attribution for calls/texts placed to a phone number appearing within the banner creative itself must currently be tracked using a standard call tracking number.


  • Creating Floodlight activities to track Call and Text Data as Conversions

    To get started with your DoubleClick Campaign Manager (DCM) integrationlog into your DCM account. Once logged in, navigate to the Advertisers section of the application. From here, select the Advertiser(s) for whom you want to create the Floodlight Activities so you can track phone calls and text conversations.
