As the original performance marketing agency, Performics converts consumer intent into revenue for the world’s most admired brands. We were founded in 1998 (the same year as Google) and have been squarely focused on our core offering - performance marketing - ever since. We began as a startup called Dynamic Trade where we launched a CPA/CPL-based Affiliate Network that focused on Web traffic monetization via direct response vehicles. Dynamic Trade was later rebranded as Performics (Performance + Metrics). Over time, we continued to expand our offerings and launched a Paid Search practice in 2001, and an organic search (SEO) practice in 2003.

In 2004, Performics was acquired by DoubleClick and became DoubleClick Performics. DoubleClick Performics products were widely known as industry-leading technology platforms at the time and consequently attracted the attention of Google. Google purchased DoubleClick Performics in 2008, seeing the technology company as highly complementary to its search and content-based text advertising business. In August 2008, Google sold Performics to the Publicis Groupe. Today, we’re the performance marketing arm of Publicis Media, a Publicis Groupe collection of media agency brands. As the fifth global media brand within Publicis Media, we go to work serving performance marketers as an agency of record. We’re also the Performics-branded practice of Publicis Media, and in an integrated way, support all the other brands within Publicis Media through performance arm engagements.

Our vision is to deliver unsurpassed digital results for the world’s most admired brands. Our mission is to drive exceptional performance marketing results by creating dynamic, personalized and optimized experiences across all digital touchpoints. As the original performance marketing agency, Performics converts consumer intent into revenue for the world’s most admired brands. Performics translates consumer needs into more effective media buys and more engaging content to deliver the right message to the right person in the right place at the right time.
