Target Audience

In a previous blog post, I mentioned a couple examples of better audience profiling capabilities in order to target specific audiences.

  1. Males that live in a radius of 10 miles from New York with a Credit Score of 650 or higher, or
  2. Female Democrats that are registered voters in the Zip Code 94043.

How is it possible to target specific audiences in the Internet?

There are companies that simply work at gathering information around the web. They also buy information from the companies that many of us do business with. Don’t worry, there is no reason to be afraid; they don’t sell individual credit and personal information. These companies simply sell their basic customer profile data, making it easier for advertising platforms to target those parameters.

Is Audience Targeting reliable and precise?

Even though we are not given specific information on each person’s IP address and personal information, it is possible to see a clear increase in the Click Through Rate and Conversion Rate on these ads. The more specific audience you target, the more successful your campaign will be.
