There’s a crisis in
And an opportunity
But in the real world, there are complicating factors. Like the fact
that there are millions of customers and prospects. And they’re
connected to an unprecedented array of devices and media. So you
need to be prepared to communicate across all those channels,
delivering thousands — or even millions — of distinct messages to
your audience in a given day.
Media profusion, fragmented attention —
and models that don’t keep pace with reality.
The same technology that gives you more ways to reach consumers
than ever has paradoxically made it much harder to achieve the impact
you need. And marketers are for the most part unaware of the true
extent of the problem. Consider: while 80% of CEOs believe their brand
delivers a superior customer experience, only 8% of their customers
Which shouldn’t be surprising, considering the fact that 4 out
of 5 online ads (to cite just one medium)fail to reach their intended

There is a critical need to improve marketing
ROI. And the solution is conceptually quite
simple: engage with consumers more fully —
i.e., profitably — by delivering a better brand
experience that serves the right message, to the
right person, at the right time.
It’s time for a new model.
$100,000,000 OF ROI
The need for a new engagement model is quantifiable:
shifting just 15% of marketing investments from low-
to high-value opportunities can markedly improve
a company’s marketing success ratio. And full
implementation has generated over $100 million
a year in benefit to our clients.
Presenting a new approach to engagement that helps you
answer critical questions, act with greater confidence, and
execute on a mass scale — to achieve new levels of success.
Reach the right audience in larger numbers
Obstacle: Marketers and the “publishing” networks
they use (online networks such as Yahoo or MSN,
cable companies, mobile providers, etc.) can
only share a limited amount of audience data, for
privacy and competitive reasons. Relevance-X®
multichannel targeting solution acts as a trusted
“safe haven” where marketers and publishers can
anonymously match up audience data, to target
far more precisely at scale, without compromising
personally identifiable information.
By replacing wasteful broadcasting
with efficient addressableadvertising,
you can reach and engage your audi-
ence with certainty. But it’s not enough
to reach only the right people; you also
have to find enough of them, across
many channels, to impact sales. In
other words, you need scale.
How you see your audience influences
your expectations of them, and single
dimensional views — whether behavioral,
contextual, or media-based — usually lead
to a false picture. To uncover more
relevant insights and filter out false
signals, you need to integrate multiple
Seeing consumers — and opportunities — more clearly
Multichannel customers — e.g., online and in-store
buyers — are 4-5 times more profitable3
But because they can’t match on- and off-line sources
of customer data, many companies perceive such a buyer
as two (or more) different people. AbiliTec®
recognition technology helps solve this by matching
data files from multiple on- and off-line sources,
creating a far more real and useful view of customers.
To utilize insight on a mass scale,
you need to use your technological
infrastructure as a marketingcentral

Finally, none of the rest matters if it
isn’t applied at the moment of truth
with a personalizedandcoordinated
engagement, in the form of a uniquely
relevant communication that compels
each consumer to action.

FILL IN THE BLANKS
The next era in marketing will be won not by those
who first put a product to market, then wait for
customers to come to them. It will be won by those
who proactively use all the data and resources at their
disposal to go after the best customers first. Which
should come as no surprise, because successful busi-
ness has always been about putting customers first.
