In the meantime, here are three examples to whet your appetite, and show you how IdentityLink works for people-based targeting.

Target Your Customers Based on Past Purchases

This is a perfect example of a new spin on an old marketing tactic. Take car parts and servicing – a tried-and-tested tactic. Email and direct mail are table stakes here. But what if you could reach customers over display, search, and social channels with ads that are localized and personalized based on model ownership and dealer service area? Well now you can – take a look.

Match your ads to your customers’ wheels

Keep Irrelevant Ads Off Your Customers’ TVs

Smart targeting isn’t just about what you show. Sometimes, what you don’t show is just as important. You wouldn’t want to waste your media spend showing a customer something they’ve already bought. And you definitely wouldn’t want to commit awkward ad fails like sending deals meant for a prospect to a long-term customer.
