Brewster and New York, NY (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Alliant, a leading provider of predictive segmentation solutions for multi-channel marketers, announced today that Alliant Online Audiences™ is now available through Lotame’s industry-leading data management platform, Crowd Control.
The Lotame integration gives both direct response and brand advertisers the ability to immediately create and target large audience segments by combining Alliant’s U.S. purchase history and direct response performance data. All segments are made up of households with a history of responding to promotional offers from premier direct response marketers.
The Alliant segments represent consumer interests in over 36 advertising categories, based on anonymized purchasing data. The data set also uniquely allows marketers to segment consumers using direct response targeting criteria proven over time by marketers across promotional channels. In addition, Alliant has included segments based on its proprietary marketing performance score, ProfitSelect™, which is widely used by online and offline marketers to evaluate lead quality and lifetime value in direct to consumer marketing offers.
“Alliant Online Audiences is promotional science applied at the browser level,” said Doug Pollack, director of data sales & analytics, Lotame. “URL and meta-tag data collection often result in broad-based assumptions about Web site visitors. Because Alliant’s direct marketing performance data is based on actual past purchases, it represents a game-changer in predictive power. The targeting power of direct marketing metrics facilitates more relevant ads and offers. We believe our clients will benefit tremendously from Lotame’s new relationship with Alliant.”
“Consumers want online advertising and offers that deliver relevance and service,” said Alliant President & CEO JoAnne Monfradi Dunn. “Alliant’s clients use data to engage consumers and optimize the brand experience across every promotional channel. Alliant Online Audiences replicates those benefits in an anonymized, privacy-friendly online package — setting the stage for positive interaction and engagement. Our agreement with Lotame brings a level of innovation to online marketing that is truly multi-channel smart.”
