By Elizabeth Lauer-Lopez April 22, 2020

Singular is very excited to partner in Amazon AWS’s AppFlow launch which will help marketers by streamlining the availability of marketing performance data into their internal data warehouse including support for Redshift, S3 & Snowflake.

Using this new integration enables AWS clients to access spend and ROI data across Facebook Ads, Google Ads, Bing, and 2,000+ additional integrations.

What is Singular?

Singular provides a single source of truth for marketing performance data by managing the 3rd party data connections for marketers fetching advertising spend, conversions, and attribution decisions for all marketing channels from over 2000+ integrations. Data is aggregated into business-ready schemas from partnֳers such as Facebook Ads, Google Ads, Bing, and many more publishers, influencers and offline channels to create one data table. 

What is AppFlow?

AppFlow is a new AWS product that enables seamless data transfer between SaaS applications to AWS services like Amazon S3 and Redshift. Using AppFlow flows, you can easily manage and automate data transfers securely in just a few clicks. Example use cases include:

Power Internal Marketing Dashboards

Use AppFlow to load performance marketing data including clicks, spend, and conversions into a unified table. Access all Singular supported integrations to copy data in the most granular way possible including campaign, ad group, keyword, and creatives.

Connect Paid Marketing with Salesforce opportunities

Use AppFlow as a data pipeline to copy:

  • Sales opportunity records from Salesforce.
  • Linkedin Ads campaign performance including spend, leads, and web conversions.

Load both data sets into Redshift and use it to measure the ROI for your social campaigns.

What is Singular’s Marketing ETL solution?

Singular’s Marketing ETL takes all marketing data collected by Singular’s Marketing Analytics platform and packages it into a single data table that can be ported to any data warehouse. 

Singular and AppFlow make managing data pipelines and data flows into internal data warehouses, such as S3, Redshift, and Snowflake, and visualization tools easier than ever for marketers and engineering teams. Teams can easily map inbound data points from exclusive launch partners, such as Singular, into a newly created data table built on-demand through AppFlow’s interface without any additional coding required. Never before has it been easier to get marketing data into your data warehouse to enable marketing and business intelligence teams to do deeper analysis and project where future marketing dollars should be spent.
