Leiki SmartBanner


Leiki SmartBanner boosts your sales and conversion by automatically scanning web stores, analyzing products and promoting the most relevant ones in dynamic creative display ads. It precisely matches ads to the content to maximize buyer attention. SmartBanner is used to pre-target product offer display ads both contextually and personally. Each product can be presented alone or in a rotating multi-product window.

With pre-targeting the most personally relevant products can be shown to each individual before they have visited the webstore itself. Leiki’s technology is uniquely able to analyze product purchase intent from browsing of media content such as articles and videos, also when the content doesn’t directly mention any products.

Four ways of targeting ads with Leiki SmartBanner

Contextual – matching the most relevant ad with content

We profile content (articles, photo captions, video descriptions, etc.) and find the ad (brand ad, marketing content item, web store product) that best matches each content item.

Social – matching the ad with consumer segments

The consumer interest profiles are combined into segments to discover high-value consumers for brand advertising. Advertisers get target audience profiles of engaged consumers (visited, clicked, bought, registered etc.) and target prospects that match the profiles of previously engaged consumers.

Behavioral – matching the ad with web user’s personal interests

We create detailed personal interest profiles from clickstream for real-time behavioral targeting.

Vertical – matching the ad with aggregated publisher content

We automatically aggregate publisher content into vertical brand advertising channels around topics of interest to advertisers.


No effort is required from the advertiser, agency, network or publisher. Data feeds and targeting parameters are not needed, unlike competing solutions. Quick sign-up and implementation creates a new opportunity of efficient marketing by pre-visit targeting with dynamic creatives.
Accurate product pre-targeting reaches users who have never visited a particular store before. While re-targeting addresses only those who have visited a given store, Leiki Focus Pre-Targeting allows accurate targeting of store offers to users of any media content.
Dynamic creative selects the most relevant message when the creative arrives in the browser, without need for analytics. Over 100.000 topics are used to profile both content and users to find the best match for each ad.
More clicks, more purchases – when consumers act on personally relevant promotions they are more likely to purchase.
Know your customers unlike ever before. Collect and analyse detailed individual interest profiles and connect the data to your CRM – with complete respect to users’ privacy! Read more about our SmartTracker service.

Getting started

Implementing and using SmartBanner is very easy. Tell us what the banner should look like and which products we should use – such as “all the products at webstore.com”. We will then create the banner and send the customer its Javascript tag. You can then use the SmartBanner just like any other banner by inserting the tag into your campaign management tool or directly to the page template. The magic happens in the Leiki server, where the most relevant products are dynamically selected in real time for every impression.
