5 Ways 5G Will Affect Data-Driven Marketing on bdex.com

5 Ways 5G Will Affect Data-Driven Marketing

With the next generation of wireless technology expected to accelerate device proliferation, marketers need 100 percent deterministic cross-device matching more than ever.

A little girl rides her tricycle in her home, and as she passes a glass window, an illustration of a friendly monster appears. A fashion designer uses an AR-enabled screen to create his latest work. A group of gamers immerses themselves in an all-out virtual battle on their mobile phones…

If you didn’t see the Samsung ad that first appeared during the Super Bowl earlier this year, these images might seem like far-off fantasies, but with 5G on the horizon, they will soon become a reality.

For marketers, the opportunities 5G will bring are nearly endless. Here are just a few examples.

New marketing mediums will emerge

The proliferation of mobile devices has allowed people across the United States and around the world to access the internet, but not everyone with a smartphone enjoys the same level of connectivity. While they can typically browse the web or watch a short video, a host of problems, from a lack of bandwidth to latency, can keep these users from actively engaging in the content they consume.

The arrival of 5G will give mobile marketers the opportunity to create immersive user experiences like they never have before. Think interactive mobile games that allow users to talk and see each other in real time or AR-enabled apps from brands and retailers that allow users to try on clothes in the comfort of their home.

5G will make waves outside of the mobile space too. Better wireless internet will lead to better location intelligence, allowing marketers to geo-target potential customers with coupons, store updates, and more relevant marketing material with greater precision. In other words, getting the right message to the right customer at the right time—the goal of any marketing campaign—will finally be possible on a broader scale.

Of course, these scenarios are only a few examples of how marketers can create bigger, better campaigns and user experiences with 5G. Only time will tell how marketers take advantage of 5G once it’s widely available.

Marketers will have access to more real-time data

5G will boost network speeds from about 100 megabits per second to 10 gigabits per second, nearly 100 times faster than what is available through 4G now. Increased network speeds, along with increased bandwidth, will enable retailers and brands to collaborate in new ways.

Adweek predicts 5G will disrupt retailing by enabling in-store purchases via AR mirrors, distribution of long-form video content via MMS, foldable multi-screen devices and even location-based delivery.

Programmatic advertising will get a revamp

We’ve discussed how 5G will open up new avenues for data-driven marketing campaigns, but the current programmatic advertising infrastructure will also change as demand grows.

Open X, a programmatic advertising company, says it currently handles 100 billion ad requests per day. That number may seem high, but when 5G arrives, brands, retailers, and other companies will request programmatic ads even more. Advertisements will load faster and richer audio and video experiences will be possible, giving brands even more reason to invest in programmatic advertising.

Programmatic advertising costs could change as well. More demand could lead to higher prices, but advertisers and publishers also predict there will be more ad formats and pricing options to choose from as well.

Marketing across multiple devices will be a must

With 5G, more consumers will access the internet on more devices at the same time. While the interaction between devices includes smartphones, desktop, and laptops, smart home and voice-enabled devices powered by the IoT will be accessed more frequently as well.

To reach users across all their devices, marketers will have to identify them. Tools like BDEX’s ID Graph, which uses 100 percent deterministic cross-device matching, will become indispensable.

Marketers that fail to prepare could get left in the dust

It’s important to recognize that even though 5G is expected to change how marketers approach data-driven marketing, it will take years to reach the average consumer. In its downloadable report “The 5G era in the US,” the GSMA estimates 5G won’t become the leading mobile network technology in the United States until 2025 when it’s expected to account for about half of mobile connects.

That gives marketers plenty of time to prepare. Whether your company is a startup or a multi-million dollar establishment, the BDEX DXP has an audience and other datasets across more than 500 industries, making it an ideal resource for marketers who want to get ahead and start reaching more potential customers now.

By combining the functionality and reach of a traditional DMP in a true marketplace environment, BDEX enables companies to create and target audiences like never before. Contact us today to learn more.

The Value of TV Viewing Data on bdex.com

The Value of TV Viewing Data

Whether it’s knowing what your customers are watching or how to reach audiences watching certain programs, having access to TV viewing behavior can take your personalization and real-time targeting to the next level.

If you are new to the TV advertising business, it’s easy to get swept up in the hype about the targeting capabilities of smart TVs. Yes, smart TVs are being adopted rapidly and yes, they are prompting more brands to consider adding TV to their programmatic buys.

The fact Is, however, that much of the technology underlying smart TVs has been in use by the cable and satellite TV industry for decades and BDEX has been collecting data signals from tens of millions of addressable.

The BDEX Data Exchange Platform (DXP) contains more than 14 billion data points from addressable cable TV, including more than providing insight into when, how often and for how long tens of millions of U.S. consumers view hundreds of channels, genres, and shows.

A quick query of the Arts/Television industry using the

Query the Arts/Video industry and you can explore 13 and see what contact information we have for 65 million unique users who have downloaded/streamed comedy film from the Internet or the 96 million who have used pay-per-view to watch an action movie.

The BDEX DXP provides the data you need to connect with tens of millions of cable TV, satellite TV, and streaming video service customers based on their viewing habits.

This rich psychographic data can be used to refine audience segmentation or personalization whether you use programmatic TV advertising or not. In late March, a marketer could have used our data to reach 12 million people who had watched Game of Thrones in the prior four weeks via 6.3 million email addresses, 2.9 million U.S. postal address and 2.2 million smartphone IDs.

Other misconceptions

While it’s true that advertisers have been slow to exploit addressable cable TV’s programmatic capabilities, that’s due largely to three big misconceptions about programmatic TV advertising, according to Bett Hurwitz, business lead for advanced TV at Verizon Media Group. The biggest of those is the perception that due to higher CPMs, programmatic TV advertising only makes sense when trying to reach small audiences.

Hurwitz counters that insights gathered through a small amount of programmatic TV advertising can improve the ROI on linear TV ad spending. For instance, a marketer could invest five percent of their overall TV advertising budget in non-linear TV (streaming, DVR, video-on-demand, over-the-top (OTT) or mobile technology that facilitates time shifting) to find out when and what their target audience is watching. They could then use that information to spend the remainder of their TV advertising budget more wisely.

As Hurwitz points out, predictions of TVs rapid demise seem more hype than reality.

From 2010 to 2014, TV remained more effective at achieving advertisers’ KPIs than online display, paid search, print and direct marketing advertising across multiple industries, according to a comprehensive study by Neustar MarketShare sponsored by Turner Broadcasting Company and Horizon Media. Despite the rapid adoption of OTT (over-the-top) streaming services and other changes in consumer viewing habits, the study found that at similar spend levels, television’s lift was consistently 7x paid search and 3x online for the industries studied.

Amazing brand experiences

Of course, a lot has happened since 2014. Today, Google data shows that 84 percent of smartphone and tablet users use those devices while watching TV, and they’re often searching for information that’s related to what they’re watching.

Whether it’s via addressable cable and satellite boxes or smart TVs, programmatic TV empowers brands to expand their omnichannel experience in a very meaningful and scalable way. It enables marketers to send different ads to different devices in real time based on what the user is watching. A teenager and their parent could be sitting side by side on a couch watching the same program and see completely different advertising appear on their personal devices based on real-time data signals captured by BDEX partners.

BDEX provides marketers the ability to target the smartphones of 180 million digital cable subscribers based on viewing habits. That could be the 1.5 million who watched NBC Sports Fishing programs in the prior four weeks or the 99 million who watched Pawn Stars on the History channel.

Using Real-Time Data to Build Brand Loyalty on bdex.com

Using Real-Time Data to Build Brand Loyalty

Customer marketing focuses on retaining and enriching the customer relationships you already have, and the more competitive your industry is, the more you are going to need real-time data.

At BDEX we talk about how we are building the data infrastructure that powers human connectivity by delivering the right insight into the right people at the right time – to close the sale. But the value of our real-time data goes far beyond that. It can be just as valuable for building customer loyalty as for audience segmentation and targeting.

In fact, learning how to integrate real-time data into customer marketing could be a great way to pull away from competitors, particularly in more mature industries where customer loyalty is critical to sustaining growth. Research from Forrester and DataStax has shown that 95 percent of companies can’t yet make sense of customer data, and thus they struggle to pull any meaningful, real-time insight out of it.

Targeted marketing vs. customer marketing

The term “customer marketing” may seem redundant since all marketing is aimed at customers. But in this context, we are using the term to refer to marketing to existing customers rather than targeting new ones.

Targeted marketing markets products or services to potential customers, not current customers based on known preferences and behavior.

Customer marketing aims to not just retain customers but keep them buying repeatedly and success hinges on integrating data that is often scattered throughout an enterprise. For instance, product marketing and management and account management, as well as the customer marketing team, need to work together to build a single customer database.

Each team on its own wouldn’t have all the information about what customers value most and what brings them the most satisfaction, all of which are factors that lead to brand loyalty. In a study from the CMO Council, almost half of marketers still fail to deliver “contextual, personalized engagements” across points of contact.

Often, marketers can get that context more quickly by partnering with high-end data exchange platform like BDEX, which aggregates and classifies billions of real-time data signals from dozens of vetted partners using a uniform taxonomy to help marketers quickly build custom audiences.

Enhancing the customer experience

The first consideration for customer marketing should be enhancing the customer experience across all touchpoints to create a seamless and immersive brand experience. This will lead to greater customer loyalty, which will lead to repeat purchases and lifelong customer relationships.

A report released from Motista showed that emotionally connected customers are much more valuable to brands overall. These loyal customers spend up to two times more than other customers, have a 306 percent higher lifetime value, and stay with a brand for 5.1 years on average.

So, how do you enhance the customer experience and foster customer loyalty in 2019?

One way is to find new ways to use real-time data to push further toward true 1:1 customer personalization.

For instance, you could layer real-time data signals available from third parties on top of your existing customer data to enhance the product recommendation engine on your online store.  Personalizing recommendations can make the difference between a returning customer making add-on purchases and abandoning their shopping cart.

Or you could make a commitment to omnichannel personalization. This involves using cross-device matching and real-time data to tailor content not just to the customer’s preferences and behavior, but to the channel being used to present a consistent and integrated customer experience. This means adjusting content to exploit the strengths of each channel, whether that be email, text messages, an online store or SERP, a mobile app, an addressable cable TV box, digital signage, smart appliances or direct mail. This capability will become more critical the more humans become enmeshed in the Internet of Things and it’s only possible when you have access to the technology listed below.

Identity resolution

Your organization likely already has a data gathering system in place. But are you using that data as much as you could be? Each data transaction should be linked to a unique customer identifier, which allows you to create a more granular picture of your customers for not just real-time personalization, higher resolution targeting, and audience management, but more omnichannel personalization.

The more data you have in your ID Graph the more you can segment your audience and personalize your content. This allows you to send different messages to potential customers and existing customers so that both groups aren’t seeing the same ads and thus becoming alienated if a message doesn’t apply to them.

Deterministic matching

Deterministic cross-device matching uses customer information like anonymized log-in data or email addresses to match connected devices to Customer IDs and it ’s essential to omnichannel personalization and integral to building a robust ID Graph.

Geofencing

Geofencing allows marketers to draw a virtual fence that will alert them any time someone enters or exits a specific area. This can be used by brands and retailers to email coupons and other content to customers once they get within a certain distance of a store or even a section of a store. The technology provides a tremendous way to connect with existing customers at or near the point of purchase.

Clickstream and POS data

Combining geofencing data with other real-time signals such as a customer’s browsing activity or brick-and-mortar purchases can provide even greater insight into customer intent. This can help you decide not only whether and how to connect with the customer, but what content to send.

The above provides just a glimpse of how real-time data can be used to enhance customer loyalty, boost customers’ lifetime value and improve your marketing ROI.

Why loyalty matters?

Research shows investors are much more likely to reward brands with repeat customers and customer loyalty with premium valuations. That’s primarily because repeat purchasers spend more, refer more people, and bring in more business, according to Bain and Company research. As any marketer knows, it’s also significantly less expensive to retain a customer than acquire a new one.

This is why more auto dealerships are now focusing their marketing efforts toward retention, rather than just target marketing. Real-time data, it turns out, can turbocharge customer loyalty just as much as customer acquisition and sales.

Real-Time Data Is Getting Real Important Really Fast on bdex.com

Real-Time Data Is Getting Real Important Really Fast

One the most important steps to launching programmatic advertising is ensuring access to comprehensive, accurate and accessible real-time data. After all, when it comes to data marketing, it’s garbage in, garbage out.

As programmatic advertising and other types of real-time marketing become more widespread, having 24/7 access to accurate real-time data is going from a nice-to-have to a must-have for global CMOs.

Even the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA), which has been pushing the ad tech industry for greater accountability on behalf of global brands, estimates its members spent 28 percent of their digital media budgets on programmatic advertising in 2018. That was up from 17 percent in 2017 and 9.5 percent in 2014, according to WFA membership surveys.

Real-time marketing allows brands to serve the right content to the right person on the right device at the right time to help close the sale or move the consumer further down the sales funnel. This is made possible by real-time analytics and ad server technology that enables brands to respond in milliseconds to signals consumers send during their omnichannel journey.

Concerns about transparency and GDPR notwithstanding, brands are reporting tremendous lifts in traffic, open and conversion rates from programmatic campaigns.

Office Depot was able to increase revenue $6.9 million in four months by personalizing content on its product detail pages, according to personalization software maker Monetate. A luxury travel site was able to increase email sign-ups and catalog requests 8 and 3.6 percent respectively by using Monetate to personalize content for visitors to its web site.

In the United Kingdom, the wireless carrier O2 used usage, device and location data from customer’s mobile devices to show them the trade-in value of their devices, the best upgrade deals available and what customers like them generally preferred upgrading to, reports GlobalWebIndex.com. The result: a 128 percent lift in click-through rates.

The next wave

Real-time marketing continues to evolve right alongside human behavior, which has shown an amazing ability to adopt new technology. Less than five years after Amazon introduced Alexa and began shipping the Echo, more than 66 million smart speakers have been in installed in the United States, including 30 million installed in 2018. To get a sense of the dizzying pace of adoption, check out Voicebot.ai’s Voice Assistant Timeline.

Given predictions that half of all searches will be voice searches by 2020 and that only 8 of every 100 will request audible-only search results, this has huge ramifications for programmatic advertisers. Imagine, for instance, that you have an opportunity to serve the lone audible search result to a consumer who has commanded Alexa to “read me” the results of their voice search for “the most fuel-efficient 2019 SUV model.” How valuable would that be to your business?

One study estimates American consumers purchased $1.8 billion in goods via “voice commerce” in 2017 and forecasted that number to grow 20 fold by 2022.

Nearly one in four (37 percent) new smart speaker owners surveyed for The Smart Audio Report in July 2018 Research said they used it for pre-purchase research.

“This begs the question of how many product sellers are actually ready to serve up information in response to voice queries about their product or category,” Voicebot.ai Editor and Publisher Bret Kinsella wrote at the time. “The answer is very few.”

Garbage in, garbage out

While it will take years to sort out the ideal formats, pricing and attribution models for “read me” voice search ads, forward-thinking advertisers, agencies, publishers and Ad Tech companies are already using the BDEX Data Exchange Platform (DXP) to tap voice search and other real-time data signals to improve their real-time targeting. Thanks to nearly 100 partners, the BDEX DXP contains nearly 1 trillion data points on tens of millions of U.S. consumers. More importantly for programmatic advertising, the BDEX ID Graph uses 100 percent deterministic matching.

This last point is critical because we believe the biggest challenge facing CMOs today is the poor quality of most marketing data. We spent the last five years building a data infrastructure to provide the data brands and retailers need to know and serve their customers better. Today nearly 100 partners contribute data to our DXP.

At BDEX we call this building the “data infrastructure that powers human connectivity,” and we are convinced it will foster the highly personalized and inobtrusive brand experiences consumers want.

Surveys like Deloitte’s 2018 Ad Blocking Report, show that the Ad Tech industry has so far fallen far short of delivering that experience.

BDEX is committed to building the infrastructure that powers human connectivity. Thanks to more than 100 partners, our the BDEX Data Exchange Platform (DXP) marketers can choose data from over 5,500 categories, including shopping, sports, health, recreation, and science. We have over 900 billion data points on U.S. consumers, with half coming from industry-leading sources like Acxiom and Neustar and half coming from real-time custom tags. Why not call BDEX today to see how we can help you launch or improve your real-time marketing.

How e Put Marketers in the Driver’s Seat on bdex.com

How We Put Marketers in the Driver’s Seat

BDEX has structured its business around customers’ needs from the beginning by enabling them to find and buy only the data they need and nothing more.

We’ve previously discussed how BDEX is not a typical data company, and one of the reasons for this is because we strive to give our customers the most useful and relevant data possible. But we also pride ourselves on offering the best service and support to everyone we work with. We accomplish this by taking a personalized approach that focuses on these areas:

Explore BDEX Taxonomy

We created Explore BDEX Taxonomy so you can explore our vast database, including nearly 1 trillion constantly refreshing real-time data signals at your convenience. This enables you to determine whether we have what you are looking for without having to pick up the phone to call us. Read more about how the BDEX taxonomy tool can be used here.

Custom data feeds

When you find what you are looking for – and we are very confident you will – you can schedule an exploratory consultation. BDEX data analysts will sit in on the call to ensure they understand how you define the key steps in your target customer’s path to purchase. We understand that you know your customers better than anyone, as well as the data signals that show they’re ready to buy. Our job is to translate that information into a data feed that meets your needs.

Omnisource IQ

The next step involves using our proprietary Omnisource IQ© process to scour billions of real-time data signals to determine not only which consumers are good prospects but exactly where they are in their path to purchase so you can decide whether, when and how to contact them. We do this with our unmatched, 100 percent-deterministic cross-device matching as well as data on what products consumers have purchased and visited from brick-and-mortar stores via point-of-sale systems and geofencing data provided by our more than 70 partners. Omnisource IQ© is our secret sauce and your secret weapon and its constantly being refreshed.

A subscription model

Most data companies are eager to please before you make a purchase, but once you do, their customer support can be underwhelming. Not BDEX. With our subscription model, you can get access to data whenever you need it and only pay for what you use.

If you need to reach people who live or work in downtown Pittsburgh who are actively shopping for a new home, you get to determine what “new” and “searched” mean using the BDEX Targeting Module.

If you are only interested in people who have physically visited specific subdivisions in the last month, there is no need to buy records on the thousands who merely searched for new homes on the web in the last month. This may sound a little complicated, but with an intuitive interface and many download options, we’ve made our service extremely easy to use.

Again, the feed we set up for you will constantly be updated with thousands of real-time data signals every month to provide you an authoritative view of your in-funnel customers. Our data experts can even set up automatic alerts based on criteria you select to notify you when an actionable selling opportunity arises.

Data as a Service

With traditional online advertising, you pay for every ad impression, as well as the data used for that impression. But with our Data as a Service (DaaS) solutions, you will get all of the data you need at one cost, and you can then upload your custom audience into almost any ad platform. At that point, you will be able to market to them and only pay for the ad impressions from then on. Instead of a cost per impression, we provide you with a fixed cost.

The bottom line

BDEX has structured its business around customers needs from the beginning in a bid to create a new kind of company. We know you know your customers better than we do. Our role is to help you connect with them with unprecedented precision by delivering the right insight into the right people at the right time so you can close the sale.  Our mission is not to just to sell data but to build a data infrastructure that powers human connectivity and we believe our success hinges as much on the quality of our customer service and support as our data.

This is why so many leading companies have chosen BDEX to fulfill their marketing data needs across so many industries, including:

Media – We help multi-platform media companies reach consumers on all their devices.

Franchises – We give franchisees the ability to find out who is visiting their competitors so they can convert those consumers into their own customers.

RetailersThe BDEX Targeting Module enables brands to select any data attributes, combine them, and select the quality, age and price of each and every data element.

Using the BDEX Taxonomy Tool to Find Insurance Prospects

A step-by-step guide on how to use our free, self-service taxonomy search tool to determine what data the BDEX DXP has that can help elevate your next marketing campaign.

At BDEX we pride ourselves not so much on the size of our haystack as our ability to help you find just the right needles for your marketing needs.

After all, if I’m a marketer I don’t care how big a database is if it’s filled with unreliable, irrelevant or dated information that can’t provide the audiences I need right now to boost conversion rates.

BDEX is a first-of-its-kind Data Exchange Platform (DXP) offering marketing teams the ability to connect directly with first-party data vendors in a variety of industries. That means our buyers have access to objectively-scored, real-time insights, which can be downloaded directly into their data management platform (DMP) to immediately begin generating marketing lift.

Of course, there are countless stories about marketers paying for shoddy data, so we have created Explore BDEX Taxonomy; an intuitive interface marketers can use to explore the nearly 1 trillion data signals contributed by our more than 70 vetted partners.  In an earlier post, we explained broadly how to use the BDEX taxonomy tool to find your ideal customers. In this article, we will walk through how an insurance marketer unfamiliar with the BDEX DXP might use the tool for the first time. We have bolded words used by the BDEX taxonomy.

Automobile insurance

Let’s say our user specializes in marketing insurance to owners of Foreign SUVs and wants to see how many target customers she can reach for $5,000.

She could start her search by typing “insurance” into the search box near the top of the page, which would return a list of 12 Available Industries with a Count, which stands for the number of data points available in each industry. A data point could be basic demographic information such as address, sex, marital status, and other household data, contact information, or real-time data signals collected via cookies and geofencing.  She would see that there are 13.4 billion data points available for Persona\Auto, 34.3 billion for Persona\Finances, and 10.0 billion for Shopping/Vehicles.

By selecting Persona/Auto,  she would populate the second drop-down menu to the right with 11 taxonomies, including Audience Class, Automobile Age, Automotive Class, Make\Model, Own or Lease, etc.

If she then selects Make, the third and last drop-down menu on the screen will load 40 models and the Count of how many Target Identities, or email addresses, mobile ID numbers or other identifiers –  are available for each one. By clicking on the Count column, she can sort the list by ascending or descending number of  Target Identities. This will show that BDEX has data on 14 million people who own or lease a BMW, 13 million who own or lease a Lexus or Cadillac and about 12.3 million who own or lease an Acura and or Mercedes Benz.

Automobile insurance on bdex.com

Audience class

This is interesting, but not particularly useful since our marketer is interested in all makes of Foreign SUVs, so she returns to the second drop-down menu listing the 11 taxonomies and selects Audience Class. This allows her to narrow her search by 135 other Values, or criteria. She can scroll down to HH Most Recently Acquired Foreign SUV and see that BDEX can connect her to nearly 4.2 million Target Identities that have recently acquired a foreign SUV.

Audience class on bdex.com

If our marketer is primarily interested in running targeted mobile adds, she can return to the first search field on the page and select Mobile (AAID)” and “Mobile (IDFA) from the drop-down menu and repeat her search.

BDEX Taxonomy Persona Auto Audience on bdex.com

That will show BDEX can connect her to of the nearly 3.5 million households above via either an iPhone or Android device.

BDEX Taxonomy Foreign SUV on bdex.com

Starting the search by selecting Email would show BDEX has email addresses for 3.5 million of the household listed above.

CPM estimates

She will also notice that Explore Industry Taxonomy updates CPM estimates based as the taxonomies selected to help the user determine how far her budget would go using the selected criteria. In the example above, she would see her CPM would range from $1 to $1.50 and average around $1.25. Given her budget, that would enable her to reach roughly 4,000 people who meet the selected criteria.

Persona/Home

In our next scenario, let’s consider a marketer looking to see how many high-end homeowners BDEX can connect them to nationwide. They could start their search by checking Email (MD5), Mobile (AAID) and Mobile (IDFA) typing in the first search field in the upper left-hand corner, searching for home” and selecting Persona\Home from the 42 Available Industries listed. This will produce 14  Taxonomies in the menu to the right, including Area Code, Audience Class, Dwelling Type, and Home Value.

If he selects Home Value, he will be prompted to specify a range of home values in the next menu. If he filters his search for homes valued between $750,000 and $5 million, he will learn that DBEX can provide 850,000 email addresses and 470,000 mobile IDs attributable to people who owns homes in that price range.

BDEX Taxonomy Persona Home Audience on bdex.com

If our marketer goes back to the Taxonomies screen and selects Audience Class, he can browse 272 audiences BDEX data partners have uploaded based on demographic and psychographic data, such as sex, age, generation, educational degree, expected graduation from college, and many, many more. If his ideal customer earned more than $200,000 a year, lived in or near a major city, was in their 40s and had children, he could select the High-income City Middle Aged Homeowners with Children audience and see it would cost him an average of $1.27 per thousand. He can opt to include or suppress personas who are already insured through one of the four largest home insurers (AAA, All-State, Farmers and State Farm.)

If he is focusing on a geographic area, he can get a count of personas by Zip Code, Area Code, State or City.

If our marketer sells renters’ insurance, he can start a search by typing “renter” into the Search field, then select Persona/Home from the three available industries that display and then select Audience Class to browse 272 groups created by BDEX. If he selects Middle-Income Suburban Younger Renters with Children, he can see BDEX has 45.4 million email addresses and mobile device IDs attributable to that audience.

At BDEX, we are confident the data we have aggregated from online searches, app downloads, geofencing, in-store POS purchases and other primary data providers we partner with will provide the context you need to take your marketing to the next level. Our Explore BDEX Taxonomy tool will enable you to confirm our claims. When you do, we hope you will contact us so we can begin collaborating. BDEX can often deliver a report showing the volume of data we have that meet your criteria, the size of the audience we can reach and total cost in a matter of days.
