Advertisers are increasingly turning to addressable programmatic to precisely reach their target audience. As more and more consumers are tied to their various digital devices and are spending increased time streaming media across multiple channels, it is no wonder that marketers are looking to target consumers across all devices seen within a household.

Addressable programmatic with Simpli.fi lets advertisers reach consumers household- by -household so that campaigns can take into account the various ways one household differs from another. The results are less wasted impressions, higher ROI, and most importantly more personalized and useful ad experiences.

What’s even more impressive, however, is what happens when advertisers layer on our Addressable Audience Curation tool with Simpli.fi’s addressable programmatic capabilities
 

Addressable Audience Curation: A New Dimension of Household-Level Targeting

With Simpli.fi’s Addressable Audience Curation (AAC) tool, advertisers can easily curate addressable audiences in real-time based on location and demographic data. Location data can be filtered by postal code, city/metro, congressional districts, and more. Advertisers can then build and activate a custom household-level audience in real-time using more than 700+ offline data variables (including demographic, economic, and political variables) for inclusion or exclusion via full Boolean capabilities. This is truly granular audience creation at your fingertips, and it can be implemented on the national scale.

What this means for advertisers is that ads can be served to the right households based on a number of demographic variables. And since it is essential for advertisers to reduce waste and maximize ROI, reaching the right person at the right time with a relevant message has never been easier. Once the ideal audience has been curated, advertisers can then utilize our Addressable Geo-Fencing solution to target all devices seen within the household.

No matter the size, advertisers from every industry can greatly benefit from targeting users at the household-level, and they can do so with mobile, video, display, native, or OTT/CTV ads. Simpli.fi’s cross-device graph associates all of the devices in a household, thereby linking mobile, tablets, desktops, and connected TVs. This makes it easy to reach users across all of their devices and enables attribution for both online and offline conversions.

Let’s dive into some strategies on how advertisers can capitalize on Addressable Audience Curation to reach the right target audience at the property-level.
