Press Release | Marketers to benefit from consumer targeting and insight under new MediaMath and VisualDNA partnership

March 13, 2013

Partnership will give MediaMath clients access to rich VisualDNA targeting data for more than 150 million global consumers

MediaMath, the global digital media-buying platform, has partnered with VisualDNA, a leading provider of true audience targeting solutions, to give clients access to detailed audience targeting on more than 150 million global consumers for use in advertising campaigns.

The targeting segments were made available to advertisers in February allowing third-party data to be integrated into campaign optimisation and providing additional targeting, complementing MediaMath’s existing capabilities.

The combination of audience profiles using VisualDNA’s technology, along with MediaMath’s media scale, optimisation capabilities and workflow, provides great value for all TerminalOne platform buyers. The targeting is unique as users are grouped according to their online and offline behaviour, as well as their purchase intentions. There are 450 standard audience segments covering interests, tastes, preferences and intent, and custom segments can be created that cater for a specific brand or product. Users are placed into relevant groups according to their lifestyle, interests and stated purchase intent, enabling brands to reach highly relevant audiences.

“Data, and the breadth of that data, are lynchpins in any successful marketer’s campaign,” said Greg Williams, Co-Founder and VP Business Operations, MediaMath EMEA. “This partnership with VisualDNA will mean our clients have unrivalled insight into their audience groups and will be empowered with the ability to refine target segments accordingly.”

“MediaMath is a world-leading DSP working with some of the most innovative businesses in the world and we’re delighted to be partnering with them”, said Founder and CEO of VisualDNA, Alex Willcock. “VisualDNA’s audience profiling approach is unique. By capturing declared emotive and intent data and combining it with standard behavioural, demographic and offline data we create uniquely rich and remarkably accurate audience profiles. Our focus on understanding people means we generate insights above and beyond that of other providers and this partnership with MediaMath means we can now empower many more marketers to target the right audiences, at scale.”
