With the holiday shopping season quickly approaching, retailers are making preparations for this annual revenue windfall. And with 2021 holiday retail sales expected to increase by 7-9% as compared to the 2020 season, it is essential that retailers be prepared to leverage effective digital ad campaigns to capture these consumer dollars.
So, what does this mean for advertisers this holiday season? The way people shop and how to best reach consumers with advertising is changing rapidly, leading even the most seasoned holiday marketers to reevaluate their strategies. In other words, it’s crucial for marketers to tap into the most advanced digital advertising solutions available so that they are well-positioned for success during the year’s biggest revenue opportunity.
Reach the Right Audience this Holiday with Addressable Programmatic
Broad, overgeneralized audience targeting is problematic at any time, but can be particularly harmful during the holidays when so much retail revenue is at stake. A crucial thing to keep top of mind is that not all holiday consumers are alike. Advertisers need to target audiences in a way that accounts for the fact that each consumer represents a distinct set of tastes, preferences, etc. The answer is household-level targeting. Simpli.fi’s Addressable Programmatic solutions let advertisers reach consumers household-by-household on a national scale. This means campaigns can take into account the various ways one household differs from another, translating to less wasted impression, higher ROI, and most importantly a more personalized and useful holiday ad experience.
Addressable Geo-Fencing: The Ultimate Targeting Solution for the Holiday Shopping Season
As the most granular location-based targeting solution on the market, Simpli.fi’s Addressable Geo-Fencing lets advertisers build holiday campaigns that target at the address-level across multiple devices seen within each household, including mobile, desktop, and OTT/CTV devices. Simpli.fi built this solution with unparalleled precision and scale to be an effective targeting solution for any sized advertiser who is looking to run national campaigns at the address-level and effectively reach every screen within each desired household. The end result: relevant holiday ad campaigns that reach each household based on their individual wants and needs.
And rather than relying on the limited effectiveness of IP-based targeting, our Addressable Geo-Fencing uses actual GPS and plat line data (derived from property tax and public land survey information) to precisely target the desired households with mobile, video, and/or OTT/CTV ads. Simpli.fi’s cross-device graph associates all of the devices within a household, thereby linking mobile, tablets, desktops, and connected TVs. This makes it easy to reach users across all of their devices and enables advance attribution metrics which we will cover below.
And with Simpli.fi’s Addressable Audience Curation (AAC) tool, advertisers’ ability to reach ideal consumers household-by-household reaches a whole new level of granularity. AAC allows advertisers to curate addressable audiences in real-time using location data and 700+ demographic parameters such as household income, purchase history, retail locations visited, life events, age, and more. Once the ideal audience has been curated for each market, you can then utilize Simpli.fi’s industry-leading Addressable Geo-Fencing solution to reach users at the household-level.
For example, a retailer looking to sell upscale winter coats to a middle-aged clientele during the holiday season could target ‚Äúaffluent shoppers ages 35-44‚Äù across multiple locations in the U.S. By tapping into this unparalleled household-level targeting solution, the retailer can curate addressable audiences based on location data and over 700+ demographic variables that fit ideal clients for this retailer. Once the audience is curated in real-time, it then can be easily uploaded into Simpli.fi’s platform for targeting via our Addressable Geo-Fencing solution.
Powering Your Holiday Campaigns with OTT/CTV Advertising
This holiday season, don’t miss out on the fastest-growing channel for reaching relevant consumers. Simpli.fi’s Addressable OTT/CTV solution allows advertisers to utilize our unparalleled addressable programmatic capabilities to deliver advanced TV advertising at the household-level nationwide. For holiday advertisers, this is the most precise, granular, and scalable way to serve video creative to individual households via OTT/CTV devices. This solution also has the added capability of targeting either the big screen in the living room and/or small screens such as mobile devices and tablets. When consumers across the country are watching streaming holiday content, Simpli.fi lets you get your ads to millions of CTV households.
And just as with Addressable Geo-Fencing, we use GPS and plat line data to target physical addresses so that only the right households and devices get targeted. This means significantly better ROI and less wasted impressions, since each household can be targeted individually and distinctly based on different factors.

Now more than ever, advertisers want to know exactly what they are getting for their advertising dollars. This is especially important during the holiday season when every dollar must count towards capturing revenue.
