IXI Services Launches AudienceIntel, Providing Online Advertisers With Real-time Insights Into Audience Financial Metrics
MCLEAN, Va. --(Business Wire)--
IXI Services, a division of Equifax,
today launched AudienceIntel™, an online advertising measurement tool
that enables advertisers to better evaluate who is actually viewing and
responding to their ads. The real-time interactive dashboard uses a
variety of IXI Services' proprietary financial and economic measures to
verify if ad impressions are reaching their optimal target audience.
AudienceIntel helps advertisers ensure they are allocating their spend
on ads served to qualified consumers. By measuring audiences by
estimated financial measures such as wealth, income and spending,
advertisers can verify if the audience receiving an ad is a match for a
brand and offer.
Advertisers can also use AudienceIntel's features to determine the value
of specific delivery channels. If a publisher or media channel is
under-delivering, it's easy to make data-driven budget reallocations to
better performing sites. AudienceIntel's capabilities also extend to an
advertiser's own site, allowing them to better understand the audience
that is converting, and adjust their internal mssaging and architecture
if consumers abandon the conversion process. And for marketers offering
multiple products this dashboard enables scrutiny of which consumers are
attracted to different offerings.
"Research suggests that over half of advertisers' online display
spending is wasted on unqualified prospects, but, as the saying goes, no
one is certain which half," said Jeff Sporn, SVP & GM, Digital Solutions
for IXI Services. "In the past, data has allowed us to do manual
assessments, especially of offline marketing activity, but this
real-time dashboard provides the financial and economic profile of the
audience seeing an ad during a campaign, giving advertisers a very clear
indication of whether or not they are hitting their target."
AudienceIntel works across all targeting strategies and publishers and
utilizes estimated household characteristics using anonymous, aggregated
neighborhood level data. IXI Services' digital products do not
incorporate or reveal any personally identifiable information.
