    About myThings

    Consumers visit websites for different reasons looking for different products and services. But around 96% of them leave without actually buying or booking anything. To rekindle the interest of these anonymous users, marketers use dynamic banners with customized product recommendations that are advertised on other sites. This is the principle that myThings, a programmatic ad solutions provider for large eCommerce brands, calls “dynamic personalized retargeting”.

    The data-driven advertising solution personalizes content in banners in real time – whether on desktop computers, mobile devices or Facebook - and aims to increase click and conversion rates by more than 150%. To achieve this, myThings offers its customers tailored retargeting campaigns based on insights gained by analyzing data using the analytical in-memory database EXASOL.
