NEW YORK – April 28, 2008 – 24/7 Real Media, Inc., the leading global digital marketing company, today announced that it is the first media network to deploy psychographic targeting through a partnership with Mindset Media, LLC. The new Mindset Buys™ will enable brand advertisers to target consumers with specific personality traits that drive buyer behavior and brand affinity across a broad range of consumer goods and services.
Brand advertisers have long known that consumers’ states of mind can determine what they buy and what brands they choose, but advertisers have lacked an efficient way to target mass audiences of people with the right psychographics.
Now advertisers can make Mindset Buys on 20 different elements of personality, including creativity, assertiveness, self-esteem, and spontaneity. Each Mindset Buy on 24/7 Real Media can reach millions of U.S. consumers with the same personality trait, on a completely anonymous basis. The 24/7 network reaches 150 million unique viewers each month, across more than 1,500 sites globally.
“One primary reason top advertisers and publishers partner with 24/7 Real Media is our commitment to deploying the industry’s most innovative and effective targeting solutions,” said David J. Moore, CEO of 24/7 Real Media, Inc. “Combining 24/7’s reach with Mindset Media’s targeting gives brand advertisers a distinct advantage in reaching their intended audience regardless of browsing or purchase activity.”
Psychographic targeting through Mindset Media represents the latest addition to 24/7’s advanced portfolio of targeting solutions, which also includes lifecycle management, search retargeting, geo-demographic, content, behavioral, retargeting and custom. Many of these can be combined to form an endless number of specific targeting options that can be delivered to any digital medium.
“Every brand in the modern market has a psychographic target, and the more competitive the category, the more that target matters on the bottom line,” said Jim Meyer, CEO and co-founder of Mindset Media. “We are very proud to partner with 24/7 Real Media. Together, we make the internet work harder for brands.”
