Online marketing trends are moving in the direction of favoring behavioral targeting and emphasizing relevance as the key for efficient marketing campaigns.
Savvy marketers are aware that the ROI from a relevant online marketing campaign is greater. Getting the right message to the right target audience results in stronger brand awareness and expanding the customer base. Once you have contact, further nurturing of relationships can continue using a whole host of strategies.
Combining the definition of your audience target with great design and an attractive promotional offer can have a profound impact on your ability to generate quality leads.
That is why online businesses are overwhelmingly interested in behavioral targeting opportunities.
The willingness of advertisers to pay more and to focus on relevant targeting is likely to rise in the next 12 months, as on average, only two in five marketers that are currently not targeting or retargeting, are planning to do so in the same period.
What are all these facts indicating?
First of all, online advertising is becoming more sophisticated, tailored and directed.
Behavioral targeting should especially be considered for companies in industries such as insurance, airline, financial or real estate, where decision making processes are more complex and will not happen easily.
Targeting visitors using various options, whether geo-location, demographics or simple site behavior, according to the preferences of marketing teams can result in acquiring quality contacts and building relationships.
According to research done by eMarketer, businesses are beginning to catch on to this fact and in the online advertising sector alone it is forecasted that only in the US marketers will spend $2.6 billion on behavioral targeting by 2014, up from $925 million in 2009.
