Platform enables publishers and advertisers to tap the full potential of cross-channel marketing.
New York – LiveIntent today announces LFX, the first platform designed to allow publishers to manage and monetize their valuable subscribers wherever they are – in email, on mobile devices and across the web. LiveIntent’s LFX provides premium publishers with the tools they need to control access and optimize yield of direct-sold, house, DSPs and Agency Trading Desks’ demand. It also allows advertisers to efficiently reach subscribers in the same way they access premium display on the web – programmatically or through a publisher’s direct ad sales force.
According to LiveIntent’s CEO, Matt Keiser, “LiveIntent’s LFX delivers the features and benefits publishers and advertisers have come to expect from other online media channels, while reaching a publisher’s most engaged customers, the brand loyalist that trusts a publisher’s content and ads.”
LFX for Advertisers

Campaigns can be targeted based on location, device, time of day and browser, as well as demographics including gender, age and household income. For even greater targeting sophistication, first and third party data can be used, including data sets from Bizo,Rapleaf and Axciom. LiveIntent is also the only company within the email ecosystem providing advertisers with brand safety options through a partnership with DoubleVerify and consumers assurance through the DAA’s AdChoices program.
