AOA|Automotive segments enable marketers to target online advertising to consumers based on validated auto ownership data. Alliant enhances the automotive information with its proprietary transactional data contained in DecisionBase360™, its cooperative consumer database. The resulting solution provides marketers with targeted audiences qualified by purchase history and response performance.
In total, 22 AOA segments will be introduced to automotive marketers and their agencies. Audiences include selectivity of owners by vehicle type, enhanced with Alliant purchasing information, to identify “empowered” and “emerging” consumers. Alliant will introduce five additional segments in November identifying audiences in purchase preference categories such as new and used car ownership, auto insurance, auto finance, and parts and service.
