AUDIENCES

Social Distancing Audiences

When the desire to venture out (or how safe it is to do so) varies greatly from region to region, how can marketers reach the right consumer with the right message at scale?

Some of your customers are ready and able to come shop at your locations. Others have visitation habits indicating you’re better off directing them to your website to purchase. And, their visitation behaviors vary over time and by category. To help marketers optimize advertising investment and creative messaging impact, PlaceIQ has built programmatic audiences to help manage this complexity.

These audiences include devices seen shopping during the holidays and seasonal events before the onset of the pandemic.

New audiences include:

PreCovid Holiday Shoppers

Target audiences based off their new preferences

Segmentation based on visit duration allows you to understand if your customers are shopping in store, or seeking contactless options – and message accordingly. Use these audiences from PlaceIQ to reach relevant customers with a message that delivers on your campaign goals.

Five Guys’ visit duration reveals a completely reconfigured business. Visits <10 minutes have regressed somewhat, but they still dominate the share in a manner completely unlike its pre-COVID makeup.
