Flybuys Launches Data Arm ‘Unpacked’

Flybuys has announced the launch of its new data division, Unpacked by Flybuys.

Previously known as Flybuys Digital Audiences, the division, spearheaded by Flybuys’ Chief Product Officer Harley Giles, partners with marketers to arm them with data, insights and measurement into their audiences to enable unrivalled ROI on their marketing spend.

Giles said of the launch, “We have established Unpacked by Flybuys out of FMCG marketers’ need to have better access to tangible data and transparent results, to get their media spend working harder. Our team is determined to help brands see the impact of their marketing at every step, using Flybuys’ first-party data.”

The name Unpacked by Flybuys comes from the division’s ability to help agencies and brands unpack their marketing objectives and media spend to achieve better results, based on insights derived from the shopping baskets of 8.6 million active Flybuys members.

Flybuys’ chief executive John Merakovsky sees the launch as an opportunity to help the brands that Flybuys members purchase from every day, optimise their marketing activity.

“We’ve been continuously investing in our platform, products and people, so the launch of the Unpacked division is a natural next step for Flybuys as we seek to offer the very best in first-party data insights, marketing activation and measurement to Australian brands,” said Merakovsky.

Following significant investment in its data division with the appointment of Sales Director Alex Hunt and several new hires across technology, product, partnerships and marketing, Unpacked by Flybuys has expanded its offering for media agencies and marketing managers. Its capability now offers customer insights, and measurement of both Flybuys-activated and externally run digital advertising campaigns. It has recently partnered with some of Australia’s leading businesses to enhance the access marketers have to first-party data, including:

  • Launching in October 2020 will be Nine – Australia’s largest locally owned media company. This upcoming new partnership will allow advertisers the ability to access Flybuys data across all of its digital assets including 9Now, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and
  • News Corp Australia to enable Flybuys data solutions across News Corp’s digital marketing platform, News Connect. The partnership allows the Flybuys audience segments to be accessed across the News Connect platform, allowing clients to seamlessly plan, book and measure digital campaigns based on News Corp’s audience reach of 12 million Australians. The partnership also extends to Flybuys’ FMCG measurement solutions.
  • TEG Analytics, the analytics division of leading live entertainment business TEG, owner of Ticketek. The partnership allows FMCG brands to accurately measure the sales uplift they get from sponsoring and advertising within live sport and entertainment for the first time, using Flybuys’ Insights, Activation and Reporting Solutions.
  • Through TEG Analytics, Seven West Media will activate segments, measure outcomes, as well as integrate Flybuys data into the broadcaster’s 7REDiQ customer data platform for audience insights and analysis.
  • Industry-leading measurement provider Nielsen, to develop a range of media measurement solutions. By bringing together Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings (DAR) and Flybuys’ first-party data, the partnership enables agencies to add additional audience profiling, conversion and sales lift metrics insights beyond age and gender.

“Unpacked by Flybuys offers media performance visibility all the way through to sales uplift, and the ability to test and learn for the strongest ROI,” continued Giles. “There is no room for wasted media in today’s economic climate, so we use a mix of thousands of transactional and life stage segments straight from shopping carts across the country to help our clients respond to their business problems and briefs.”
