Why go to all this trouble?
Marketing and Advertising can be expensive!
We continuously strive to make our client’s marketing as efficient and effective as possible. That means not wasting your marketing budget by putting your ads in front of people who have no interest in your product or service. You don’t get ROI by serving ads to people who don’t care about what you’re selling!
We want to reach the largest possible group of people with messaging that is likely to resonate with those people. The way we do that is by tracking those user’s activity on digital ads, websites, landing pages and other digital properties that we manage for our clients. That user activity helps us to develop a profile of the types of people who click on our client’s ads, navigate their websites and take certain actions (form fill, purchase, etc.). Along the way, we’ll ask them for an email address so we can send them messages that are even more specific to their interests and desires.
So, what kind of information are we talking about?
At one end of the spectrum, there’s basic demographics (gender, age, location, etc.). Advertisers have been making decisions from demographic data for decades.
These days, modern, digital platforms like Facebook and Google offer a wealth of additional information. For example, the Google Analytics affinity category shows the general interests of your site visitors. This is used to reach potential customers who are higher in your marketing funnel, near the beginning of their purchasing process. To reach customers who are lower in the funnel and nearer to making a purchase decision, the in-market segments shows their more immediate intentions.
Of course, there’s always a yin to the yang. In response to recent pushes for internet privacy, there have been some changes in legal requirements when tracking activity on websites, depending on where in the world you are, and some web platforms/applications have taken action to limit marketer’s ability to access certain data or monitor certain activities. No worries, we’ll help you figure out how to do this the right way, with a minimum of hassle to both you and your website visitors.
