What is Audience Enrichment and Why Do You Need It?

By December 13, 2021December 15th, 2021News & Updates 9 Min Read

Your users are not just your users. They visit other sites, buy other products, and search other topics. Without utilizing audience enrichment, you are blind to the full breadth of your audience’s profile. Your users are multidimensional and by enriching your audiences, your data can become multidimensional too.

In this post, let’s answer some questions around audience enrichment and how you can successfully build out your audiences for the most user insights.

What is audience enrichment?

Audience enrichment is the process of improving or enhancing the data already collected about your current audiences. In mobile marketing, audience data consists of information on users who have viewed or clicked on an ad, installed/used an app, or bought a product. You can enrich your audiences by collecting data on your users as they travel to other websites, apps, or platforms.

Why do I need audience enrichment?

Solely relying on your first-party data to make marketing decisions gravely limits your understanding of your users. By enriching your audiences, you can create multi-layered user profiles that can be used to improve marketing initiatives and retargeting campaigns. Audience enrichment can provide you with more information into your users habits and interests including:

  • What other products they are buying
  • What restaurants and stores do they visit
  • What activities do they participate in
  • What apps they download and games they play

Compiling more data on your audiences allows you to make more informed marketing decisions, maintain a solid userbase by increasing your user’s lifetime value (LTV), and overall, increase revenue.

How does audience enrichment work?

Audience enrichment works by taking first-party data, data about a company’s customers that’s gathered and owned by that company, and enhancing it with third-party data, data from sources that do not directly interact with the customer. Advertisers can enrich their audiences by combining data they already have on their users with additional data from other sources on those same users.

For example, an eCommerce store can use purchase history data from their customers and overlay it with data acquired from a company that has a list of users who searched for “winter coats.” The eCommerce store can then send those users ads for their winter coats in the hopes of acquiring new customers.
