MCLEAN, Va.--()--AddThis, provider of the largest social and interest graph on the open web, today announced the launch of Purchase Graph, a data set that dramatically improves the ability to identify, scale and target web audiences during the purchase cycle. Purchase-based audiences are created through a combination of offline purchase behavior and AddThis proprietary online search, behavior and social data. The resulting audiences and analytics provide marketers with more efficient and cost-effective access to highly targeted audiences to support paid, owned and earned media strategies.
“Marketers today are under intense pressure to deliver engaging online content to increasingly more savvy consumers, and to get highly focused in reaching those consumers most likely to purchase a particular brand”
“Marketers today are under intense pressure to deliver engaging online content to increasingly more savvy consumers, and to get highly focused in reaching those consumers most likely to purchase a particular brand,” said Ramsey McGrory, CEO of AddThis. “Purchase Graph provides an unprecedented level of understanding into purchase patterns and intent, arming these marketing decision-makers with a powerful new way of predicting, analyzing and influencing buying behaviors.”
New data analytics technologies are enabling advertisers to continuously refine the balance of performance vs. size when defining campaign criteria to target consumers. The Purchase Graph improves on this strategy, leveraging AddThis’ global footprint of 1.3B online users, combined with rich offline data, to ensure advertisers are targeting not only the right audience, but the audience with clear purchase intent to ensure both campaign scale and precision. Purchase Graph targeting can be used for on-site content and ad optimization, as well as for targeting as part of paid media campaigns
