Only 14% of audience-data purchases deemed successful

Data accuracy and imprecise targeting are key concerns for marketers buying audience data, according to research by Lotame.

Only 14% of audience-data purchases deemed successful

While 57% of marketers say audience data is very valuable to them (and only 1% say it is not at all valuable), only 14% of marketers say their purchases of audience data are very successful, according to a new report from DMP (data-management platform) provider Lotame.  

The company's survey of 300 brand marketers that purchase or use audience data found that only 20% are “very confident” about the accuracy of the data they buy, while 68% are “somewhat confident.” Meanwhile, 12% are either “slightly confident” or “not confident at all” in the accuracy of the data they purchase.

Only 20% are very confident in the data they buy; higher accuracy would encourage more purchases.
