Purchase Data Help CPG Marketers Find Their Quarry

July 5, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
An increasing number of consumer packaged goods (CPG) marketers are relying on purchase-based advertising, as well as location tracking and other technologies, to more sharply target potential buyers. Purchase-based advertising is based on data derived from retail websites as well as from retail stores. As evidence of the pervasiveness of the technology, mobile ad firm 4Info reports that 99 percent of the campaigns it has managed for CPG clients use purchase information. 4Info gets the data – stripped of identifiable personal information – from Nielsen Catalina Solutions, which collects UPC-level information streams directly from participating grocery and drug stores every day. The data reflect purchase information from 90 million households. The information is sophisticated enough to allow advertisers to hone their message as well.
