What is Audience-Based Buying?
Simply put, audience-based buying is the switch from buying your TV campaigns on a demographic target audience (e.g. Adults 25-54 or Women 25-49) in favor of buying an audience. These audiences can be defined by lifestage (e.g. new parents), lifestyle traits (e.g. frequent travelers), or purchase behaviors (e.g. luxury car buyers). This is enabled by advances in data, technology and measurement.
Why is adopting audience-based buying so important for marketers now?
Great advancements in data targeting have enabled an audience-first TV buying approach, but why is the shift to audience-first buying so important for marketers now? Consider that nearly half the adult population is over 50. As a result, the median age of the linear TV viewer is 56. Adults over 50 represent 4 out of every 10 dollars spent – a lucrative buying group that can be tapped into by not capping a campaign at 49 or 54, but instead embracing a total audience buying strategy.
