I would like to touch on our history since it is key to our unique position in the marketplace today. We started out initially as a web analytics company helping marketers aggregate their website data and more importantly give them the tools to understand what consumers were doing on their site. During this time, what really stood out is the need to truly understand consumer behavior and how we need to change how we connect with consumers based on these behaviors. So in 2003, we launched an onsite publisher solution to help publishers deliver relevant messaging to consumers based on their behaviors/interests and monetize their remnant inventory. The onsite publisher solution today is being used by over 40 top publishers for their direct sales efforts. So what was the market asking for next? For marketers to have an efficient channel to reach their audience anywhere online and for publishers, a way for them to monetize their own data and inventory. So we officially launched the Targeting Marketplace in 2006. The advantage we offer is the unique position we are in to leverage the expertise gained over the last 6-years with behavioral targeting, the relationships with our publisher clients combined with network experience to be a technology and marketing partner for our clients.
Consumer demand has changed so forcing marketers to connect with them outside of traditional advertising channels. From the above chart, you can see that only 3% of their time is on search with 46% of their time spent browsing. This is why behavioral targeting has become a key component to the overall marketing plan.
-63% of consumers prefer behavioral ads over contextual ads. -Consumers who prefer behaviorally targeted ads represent a higher-value audience—they have a higher income, spend more money online, and shop online more frequently than others - perfect for reaching consumers who have a higher propensity to buy!
Studies, campaign performance and overall demand have proven that it is critical to incorporate BT into your plan so you reach the right people, at the right time and right place. This is how Revenue Science can help.
