How we collect data
A visual approach
We’ve developed a patented method to create our profiles. We convert scientific personality tests into fun and fast quizzes that can spread virally. We then use those quiz results to infer the psychometrics of a much larger audience.
Our quizzes are not incentivised leading to more genuine answers and their non-linear nature allows us to capture 50-250 data points per user.Learn more about our methodology
The next generation of programmatic is here
You have a fraction of a second to capture your audience’s attention. How do you do it?
The answer lies in appealing directly to individual personalities using tailored messages. If you don’t understand what makes each member of your target audience tick, you can’t hope to truly engage them and make an emotional connection. And without that connection, your use of programmatic approaches will never reach its full potential and drive the value and efficiency you need in your advertising.
The good news is that the next generation of programmatic is here. This paper explores how programmatic innovation is creating a new culture of creative based on individual personalities. Early adopters are using programmatic 2.0 to deliver compelling, individually-tailored messages that resonate more effectively with each person—at lightning speed and at massive scale. Can you afford to get left behind?Download our Whitepaper

A new way to know your customers
More scientific, more actionable
Conventional segmentation was not designed for the digital world we live in today. We combine behavioural data, giving accuracy, actionability and scale, with Demographics, Intent, Interests and Personality giving richness and insight. VisualDNA provides true one-to-one segmentation that transcends channels and devices and can be used in real-time. We can help offer relevant products and services or support loyalty schemes and ongoing customer engagement. Segments can be viewed in WHY, VisualDNA’s insights platform, or integrated into existing platforms.Download our whitepaper
