Brewster, NY (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Alliant, a leading provider of predictive segmentation solutions for multi-channel marketers, has introduced a new behavioral list-selection platform under the brand Alliant Consumer Audiences. Alliant Consumer Audiences allows mailers and multi-channel marketers to tap transactional response and performance segmentation criteria to enable more intelligent acquisition marketing campaigns, the company reported. The announcement complements a similar targeting tool for digital display advertising, called Alliant Online Audiences, which was rolled out early in 2012.
“Alliant Consumer Audiences represents a new level of sophistication for mail and multichannel audience targeting,” said Alliant CEO JoAnne Monfradi Dunn. “We’ve taken the success of our online product and extended it to leverage the rich, predictive behavioral data in our databases to create intelligent segmentations for mail, email and telecontact. Alliant Consumer Audiences simplifies the campaign-creation process for marketing and media planners, letting them select and test lists that combine product interests with back-end performance.”
Beyond its standard purchase and performance attributes, Alliant Consumer Audiences offers mailers additional selectivity with a wide range of demographic, lifestyle and modeled behaviors. Additionally, Alliant’s analytics team is also available to develop custom models for mailers.
