Transparency Service. 

Avniel Dravid and Marc Guldimann sought after a simple and safe means for companies to be transparent with consumer data. Assets acquired by DataCoup in 2014.

Rely on consumer data to protect your brand, promote a safer Internet, and make your marketing more user-friendly.

In the dynamic landscape of online platforms, Enliken emerged, enabling websites to effortlessly accept valuable consumer data for registration or payment purposes. With this solution, websites gained access to a real-time, opt-in feed of intent and brand affinity data, seamlessly integratable with Supply-Side Platforms (SSPs) and Data Management Platforms (DMPs). Publishers became empowered with comprehensive analytics, unraveling the mysteries of their audience's off-site activities, encompassing media consumption patterns and shopping behaviors.

Enliken's data-driven approach provided websites with an invaluable resource for understanding their audience on a deeper level. By capturing real-time consumer intent and brand affinity data, Enliken equips publishers with the tools to gain insights into the motivations and preferences that drive their audience's actions. This comprehensive understanding enabled publishers to tailor their offerings, optimizing user experiences and driving engagement.

In 2014, Datacoup decided to acquire Enliken's assets, and that marked the closure of the company.
