We’re excited to announce that Singular is now integrated with Google Data Studio! This new integration enables marketing and BI teams to automatically load clean, structured marketing and attribution data from Singular directly into their Data Studio account to build custom reporting dashboards. By offloading the need to build and maintain marketing data pipelines, companies are able to save precious engineering resources and focus on business-critical projects instead.

What is Singular?

Marketing and BI teams from Lyft, Airbnb, Zynga, LinkedIn, Rovio, Twitter, and others choose Singular to unify their marketing data, apply attribution, and make faster, better decisions to unlock growth. Singular’s open integration framework enables seamless data collection from thousands of sources, like Facebook Ads, Google Ads, and many more publishers, influencers, and even offline channels. All that disparate data is then normalized, enriched, and joined with our industry-leading schemas into a single data table.

What is Google Data Studio?

Google Data Studio is a visualization and reporting tool, and an integral part of Google Marketing Platform and lets you create beautiful, informative reports that are customizable and easy to understand and share. 

Our integration with Data Studio enables seamless data transfer in just a few clicks. Singular collects campaign data, including ad spend and clicks, as well as conversion data like revenue and ROI, from a slew of marketing sources and normalizes it all into a single table.

Common customer use cases include:

Power Custom Marketing Dashboards

Use Singular to load granular marketing data for your campaigns, creatives, and keywords into a unified table. With access to complete and granular data, combined with Google Data Studios’ powerful querying and visualization capabilities, it’s now easier than ever to create customized dashboards that surface key insights. 

Build custom reporting dashboards for improving the efficiency of your team, provide visibility to management and external teams, build dashboards which are channel-specific like Keyword level analysis for AdWords. The opportunities are endless.

Analyze Customer Behavior Patterns for Better Segmentation

Copy marketing performance data from Singular, such as ad spend, clicks, country breakdowns, campaigns and creatives, into your data warehouse and join this with proprietary data, such as transactions and purchases. Companies will have much deeper segmentation information based on where they spend advertising dollars and the ROAS each customer segment produced.
