Configure Display Campaign Audiences

Display campaign audiences are the primary means for targeting display campaigns.

There are scores strategies for selecting display campaign audiences to fit the market targeted. The general idea is to understand the demographics, persona, and behavior of the customer; then to find or create audiences that match those characteristics.

In addition to positive targeting, it may also be beneficial to exclude certain audiences. These “negative audiences” can be used to shape the targeting to improve campaign performance.

Types of targeting available include direct website placements by specifying URLs, so-called  “in-market” audiences (behaviors indicating shorter-term buying interest), persistent interests known as “affinity” audiences, customer list audiences, and demographics audiences which might include age, gender, income level, homeownership, and parental status.

“Customer list matching” audiences on PPC platforms are similar to “customer matching audiences” available on Facebook. A seed list submitted by the advertiser is used to build a “matched audience” with similar characteristics and behaviors. Additionally, we have search intent-based targeting, and two types of keyword targeting.

Blastoff develops and tests display campaign audiences strategically in order to maximize the performance of display campaigns over time.
