24/7 Real Media Introduces Lifecycle Media Management for Strategic Online Targeting

Top Ad Network Helps Advertisers Reach the Right Customers at Each Stage of the Purchase Cycle

NEW YORK – 24/7 Real Media, Inc., the leading global digital marketing company, introduced its Lifecycle Media Management model, a unique approach to help online advertisers maximize the value of 24/7 Real Media’s leading media network and extensive targeting capabilities.

Marketers have long used the customer lifecycle, or purchase funnel, in order to understand and segment customers and position advertising accordingly. 24/7 Real Media incorporates this approach to provide strategic guidance on which online ad targeting methods are most effective to reach and engage customers as they move through the four Lifecycle phases: awareness, preference, purchase and loyalty.

Lifecycle Media Management works by first understanding where an advertiser’s customers are in the purchase cycle, and then by deploying a strategic combination of targeting techniques to effectively reach them with a particular campaign. A sample approach for an advertiser aiming to drive brand awareness could include demographic and geographic targeting, in conjunction with Mindset Media buys. A sample approach for an advertiser whose goal is retaining and upselling customers could center on behavioral targeting or retargeting.

Each advertiser’s message is given prominent reach across the 24/7 Real Media network, one of the ten largest networks with over 123 million monthly unique visitors in the US (comScore Media Metrix, August 2008) across more than 1,500 publishers. The 24/7 Real Media ad network has grown 37% in 2008, and now reaches 65% of all U.S. Internet users, ensuring advertisers have access to a large segment of their target customers.

“Lifecycle Media Management offers advertisers unparalleled precision to accomplish specific program goals like increasing brand awareness, driving sales and retaining or up-selling customers,” said Ari Bluman, President of North American Sales and Operations for 24/7 Real Media, Inc. “With so many innovative targeting options available to advertisers, we can help formulate a clear strategy for distributing each unique advertising message, and help them ensure that message reaches the right customers across our massive media network.”
