Certain Google-integrated third parties can use a partner API to create Customer Match audiences directly in your Display & Video 360 account. These types of third-party companies include data management platforms (DMPs), customer relationship management (CRM) onboarding services, and agencies.
This article describes the benefits of using a third party to help upload your customer data to Display & Video 360, and lists the companies that can do it for you.
Using a third-party company to upload your data is a good option for many advertisers for the following reasons:
- Some advertisers want to outsource list onboarding and refreshes instead of using the Display & Video 360 interface to upload.
- These companies don't need your Display & Video 360 login credentials to upload your data.
- You can use additional first-party customer information, such as their mailing address, phone number, or alternate email, to increase your list size. These companies use proprietary identity maps to find emails corresponding to your customers’ phone numbers and mailing addresses, and append these emails to your existing email list prior to performing the upload.
Currently, the following partners are approved to upload Customer Match lists:
