Symantec Maximizes Online Marketing Results With Marin Software

67% Increase in Return on Ad Spend for Symantec's Paid Search Program 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/30/12 --  Marin Software,
provider of the leading digital ad management platform, today
announced Symantec Corp. increased the profitability of their paid
search advertising program through the use of Marin. Symantec
operates a large online marketing program, consisting of hundreds of
thousands of ad units across search, display and re-targeting
publishers. To improve campaign management and bid optimization,
Symantec deployed Marin, and as a result increased return on ad spend
(ROAS) for their program by 67%. 
News Facts: 

--  Symantec protects the world's information, and is the global leader in
    security, backup and availability solutions. Marin Software provides
    Symantec a single platform to comprehensively manage and optimize
    search, display and retargeting campaigns. Symantec's online marketing
    investments span Google Search, Google Display Network, Yahoo! Search,
    Bing and Criteo.
--  Prior to deploying Marin Software, Symantec lacked the tools necessary
    to optimize bids across hundreds of thousands of ad units. Marin's
    newly enhanced bidding solution enabled Symantec to maximize revenues,
    while meeting key business constraints, providing a 67% increase in
    Symantec's ROAS.
--  Since deploying Marin Software, productivity for Symantec has improved
    significantly. Daily workflows which used to require significant
    manual effort in spreadsheets have been automated, reducing the time
    spent on reporting and analysis by more than 50%. Efficiencies gained
    from workflow and reporting have freed Symantec marketers to
    capitalize on newfound insights and focus their attention on more
    strategic tasks.

    access to data sets across publishers, can quickly analyze across
    campaign elements, and easily package information for executives

    campaigns that span not only search but also display and retargeting,
    Marin Software brings everything together into one unified view and
