What is Audience targeting?

Audience targeting is exactly what is sounds like it is and what you would expect it to be if you were guessing. Audience targeting is a way for businesses to reach likely consumers with precision, scale based on the area you want to target and in real time. Regardless of where the customer is, this is based on their past online and offline behaviors, interests, location, and demographic information.


How Does it Work?

Businesses can use this information to create tailored ads and target customers when they are likely to buy a product or use a service. If a customer has filled out a form, visits your website, or is observed inside your brick-and-mortar location, you can also create an audience segment to retarget these customers at a later point in time. The more relevant targeting parameters you use to create your target audience, the more effective your advertising campaign will be in terms of results and cost.


How to start identifying your target audience. Start with your current customers, think benefits which of your customers have a need or interest in your product or service. Do an informal or formal customer survey. Look for trends within your industry. Is there a niche that you can fill? Research your competition, know what they do and how they doand what’s their price point. Do they have satisfied customers that can be taken away and made to be a loyal customer to your own business? Remember K.I.S.S., keep it simple sweetheart, don’t make it complicated.
