Can I import my own audience lists into Outbrain?

    Want to jump-start your campaigns with your own audiences? Outbrain is integrated with some of the most popular DMP platforms to help you target your most engaged audiences.

    Outbrain is integrated with the following companies and we’re always adding more!

    To get started, you’ll need your Outbrain Marketer ID which is the alphanumeric chain that appears in the URL when you are viewing your dashboard. Each platform will need this ID in order to complete the import.


    Please either create a support ticket with Krux or email help@krux.com to request that Outbrain be enabled. You can then confirm that data is being successfully sent via your Krux console (Activation -> Partner Management). Once complete please reach out to your account manager informing them of the segment requested with the file path and the Outbrain marketer ID.


    Simply provide your Outbrain Marketer ID to your Nielsen rep and they will set it up!


    To import your Oracle data to Outbrain, check out their guide!


    Just provide your Adobe representative with your Outbrain Marketer ID and they’ll set things up from there!


    Simply provide your Neustar representative with your Outbrainmarketer ID and they’ll set things up from there!


    To get started, you’ll first need to create a new audience in LiveRamp or use an existing audience.

    1.)  Select My Destinations under the Out option

    2.) Next click on New Destination Account

    3.) Click Activate under the Outbrain logo

    4.) Add your Outbrain Marketer ID and click Create

    5.) Click Distribute and then select your desired segments. Then, click Add to Distribution on the bottom.  Your LiveRamp segment will now appear in your Outbrain account within 48 hours!

    If you’re using LiveRamp CRM data: The cost is $.20 per click for audience segments built from this data and $.02 per click for Lookalike Audiences created from a LiveRamp CRM audience segment. Please note that Lookalike Audiences built off of other audience segments still have no cost and there no changes to the other segments.

    Important to Note:

    • It can take 3-7 days for the CRM list to appear in the Outbrain Dashboard after uploading it to Liveramp.
    • Once the segment is visible in the Outbrain Dashboard, it can take up to 48 hours to populate.
    • You can build Lookalike audiences from these segments!
    • Just like with our Custom Audience segments, we recommend not adding first party audience segments to your campaign unless they have at least 100,000 users. Otherwise your campaign may have too low of a potential reach!
