STERLING, Va., February 22, 2012 — TARGUSinfo, a Neustar company and the trusted real-time information services and analytics provider, today announced the launch of Describe Targets, an innovative functionality within the ElementOne® Marketing Analytics platform. With Describe Targets marketers can quickly bring the most relevant information about their target audience–lifestyle characteristics, purchase behaviors, media consumption and demographics¬–to life, helping them make better marketing decisions.
Now, with the touch of a button, ElementOne users eliminate the need to manually crunch data and sort through charts or tables to uncover the attributes, behaviors and lifestyle characteristics that are most closely associated with their target consumers.
“Describe Targets gives our clients the control and flexibility to define the metrics and number of attributes they want to use for marketing planning,” said Kim Garner, Vice President of ElementOne, TARGUSinfo. “We have the broadest, deepest set of data available. Now we’re helping them quickly sort through all of it to easily get to what’s important to them.”
For instance, a TARGUSinfo ElementOne client may want to understand the television viewing habits of their target segments for developing a media plan. There are hundreds of networks and programs available today for consumers to watch, making it very difficult, laborious and time consuming for the client to determine exactly what their segments are watching. By simply pushing the Describe Targets button the user can rapidly filter through numerous options and isolate the top 10 or 20 networks or programs their targets watch.
“The idea for the Describe Targets button actually came from our clients. They loved the amount of data available in our platform but at the same time found it overwhelming. We’ve responded to market demand with a functionality that allows clients actionable business decisions with less effort and great speed,” said Garner.
