Unleashing the value of consumer data
Today, consumers demand hyper-personalisation in their everyday life, and this includes when being served ads. To get it right, brands must go beyond demographics and look into physiographic profiling, unleashing a deep and rich profile analysis of their desired target market. And that’s just the beginning. This can be mixed into pivotal parts of a consumer’s day-in-the-life to drive better propensity of buying. This closing keynote demonstrates how brands can get the most out their customer data.
