Helping Marketers Identify the Right Auto Consumers

Mom car

Today's automotive OEM marketers, agencies, and large dealer groups are challenged to reach the right audience with relevant messages across the consumer auto shopping journey. With the explosion of personal devices, shifting media consumption, and changing buying behaviors, marketers understand the key is first to find the right customers to target. Marketers understand that first-party data is highly valuable but is often incomplete and ages quickly. It frequently benefits from third-party data enhancements.

Savvy marketers use a data-based decisioning approach to learn about their consumers before choosing the best audience. This helps eliminate marketing waste and delivers a more significant return on marketing spend.
