What is Smart Geographies®

Smart Geographies® is a marketing investment optimization tool that focuses investment into the areas with the greatest potential demand. The tool integrates tens of millions of data points to leverage granular market level insights into consumer behavior, preferences, and potential product demand. This approach enables businesses to make hyper-targeted investments in growth opportunities by markets and neighborhood.

Three Powerful Optimizations in One Tool

Smart Geographies® combines the best elements of 3 data driven optimization techniques into a single tool: media optimization, econometric modeling and geospatial modeling.

  • Media optimization models are used to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of media investments. These models consider various factors to determine the optimal allocation of resources. Variables can include audience demographics, social media, media engagements, census data, lifestyles, psychographics, media consumption, and channels. As well as a company’s own internal CRM and transactional data. 
  • Econometric models are statistical tools used to identify complex interactions between different factors that influence potential demand for a product or category. These interactions are factors that can positively or negatively influence demand, also known as demand coefficients. 
  • Geospatial models analyze macro trends on a micro level using location data to identify localized patterns and relationships that impact potential demand.

Combining these three optimization and modeling techniques, advertisers can make informed decisions about where to invest to capture potential demand and sales, achieve their marketing goals, and minimize wasteful spending.
