So, you’re an Adroll user, right? It’s nice to talk to someone who prioritizes retargeting their customers in a unified platform. Your focus on growing revenue and acquiring customers optimally is commendable.
At times, there would be a need to move your marketing data from Adroll to a data warehouse. That’s where you come in. You take the responsibility of replicating data from Adroll to a centralized repository. By doing this, the analysts and key stakeholders can take super-fast business-critical decisions.
Give a high-five! We’ve prepared a simple and straightforward guide without beating around the bush. Leap forward and read the 2 simple methods for performing the data replication from Adroll to Snowflake.
How to Replicate Data From Adroll to Snowflake?
To replicate data from Adroll to Snowflake, you can do either of the following:
- Either use CSV files or
- A no-code automated solution.
We’ll cover replication via CSV files next.
Replicate Data from Adroll to Snowflake Using CSV Files
Follow along to replicate data from Adroll to Snowflake in CSV format:
Step 1: Export CSV Files from Adroll
- Go to the Campaign Reports tab in Adroll.
- Open the Adroll report from which you want to export data.
- Click on the “Export” button in the top-right corner. Then, choose the “CSV” format.
Step 2: Launch the Snowflake Load Data Wizard
- From the Snowflake dashboard, click on Databases.
- Select a particular database by clicking on its link.
- Click the Tables tab.
- You should see a list of table names. Click a table name to reveal the table details page.
- Next, click the Load Table button.
This will launch the Load Data Wizard. The wizard provides a convenient way of loading data into a Snowflake table from flat files (e.g. CSV, TSV, etc.) using PUT and COPY commands behind the scenes.
Step 3: Load the CSV Files
- Select a warehouse from the dropdown list. Snowflake will use this warehouse to load data into the table.
- Click Next.
- Select the Load files from your computer option.
- Click the Select Files button.
- Select the CSV files you exported from AdRoll.
- After selecting the files, click on the Open button.
- Finally, click on the Next button.
This will launch a dropdown list that will allow you to describe the format of your files.
Step 4: Create a File Format
- Click the plus (+) symbol next to the dropdown list.
- Fill in the fields to match the format of your CSV files.
- After filling the fields, click on the Finish button.
- Select your named file format from the dropdown list.
- Click the Next button.
Step 5: Select the Load Options
In this section, you will specify how Snowflake should behave if errors in the data files are encountered. The supported values are CONTINUE, SKIP_FILE, and ABORT_STATEMENT.
Step 6: Load the Data
- Click on the Load button to load your CSV files into your Snowflake table.
- Click the OK button to close the data wizard.
The above 5-step guide replicates data from Adroll to Snowflake effectively. It is optimal for the following scenarios:
- Less Amount of Data: This method is appropriate for you when the number of reports is less. Even the number of rows in each report is not huge.
- One-Time Data Replication: This method suits your requirements if your business teams need the data only once in a while.
- Limited Data Transformation Options: Manually transforming data in CSV files is difficult & time-consuming. Hence, it is ideal if the data in your spreadsheets is clean, standardized, and present in an analysis-ready form.
- Dedicated Personnel: If your organization has dedicated people who have to perform the manual downloading and uploading of CSV files, then accomplishing this task is not much of a headache.
However, when the frequency of replicating data from Adroll increases, this process becomes highly monotonous. It adds to your misery when you have to transform the raw data every single time. With the increase in data sources, you would have to spend a significant portion of your engineering bandwidth creating new data connectors. Just imagine — building custom connectors for each source, transforming & processing the data, tracking the data flow individually, and fixing issues. Doesn’t it sound exhausting?
How about you focus on more productive tasks than repeatedly writing custom ETL scripts, downloading, cleaning, and uploading CSV files? This sounds good, right?
In that case, you can…
