Snowflake: make paid marketing data accessible without coding

By Elizabeth Lauer-Lopez April 22, 2020

Singular is now integrated with the cloud data warehouse Snowflake to enable simple and scalable data access. This integration will save companies engineering resources and speed up business decisions by integrating paid marketing data from multiple platforms, such as Facebook, Google Ads, Bing, and 2000+ more partners. Advertising spends and performance ROI data from all marketing sources are normalized in a single table. Marketers are able to streamline the availability of marketing performance data into their internal data warehouse and make it more accessible to run custom queries. 

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 Snowflake?

Snowflake is an enterprise-ready cloud data warehouse that automatically scales (up and down) to get the right balance of performance versus cost by separating data storage from data computing. For example, if you need near-real-time data loads for complex transformations, but have relatively few complex queries in your reporting, you can script a massive Snowflake warehouse for the data load, and scale it back down after it’s completed–all in real-time. This saves costs without sacrificing your solution goals.

The integration enables seamless data transfer between Singular and Snowflake in just a few clicks. Customers use cases are:

Power Internal Marketing Dashboards

Use Singular to load performance marketing data including clicks, spend, and conversions into a unified table. Companies have access to copy data in the most granular way possible including campaign, ad group, keyword, and creatives to get more customized insights.

Analyze Customer Behavior Patterns for Better Segmentation

Copy marketing performance data from Singular, such as ad spend, clicks, country, campaign, and creative into your data warehouse and join this with proprietary data, such as transaction data. Companies will have much deeper segmentation information based on where they spend advertising dollars and the ROI results each customer segment produced.
