Behavioral Targeting at DMA06
New York, NY, October 10, 2006 - Retailers, catalogers, marketers and e-retailers are expected to spend $1.2 billion this year for online advertising campaigns that leverage behavior targeting ("BT") according to eMarketer. Both Forrester Research and Jupiter Research identified the use of behavioral targeting as a marketing necessity. By using behavioral information to reach the right audience with the right message at the right time, marketers are increasing their brand awareness, response rates, and return on investment (ROI). Behavioral targeting is helping marketers get better results online from more finely honed ad impressions. Consumers are finding the ads more relevant and publishers find more advertising streams to support the rich content that consumers have come to expect from the Web.
Some of the biggest names in online advertising will participate in a panel to discuss what has become one of the most talked-about areas in online advertising.
"This is yet another new tool that retailers, merchants, and catalogers can introduce into their marketing mix to meaningfully engage consumers," said Lou Mastria, CPO & VP Public Affairs, NextAction Corp. "Behavioral targeting can create a win-win-win for consumers, publishers, and marketers by increasing consumer relevancy, increasing the value and quantity of ad inventory for publishers, and providing greater conversion rates."
Attendees will discover how behavioral targeting will give them a presence in major Web properties, while it can lower their costs to reach interested consumers by as much as 40 percent.
