What does it look like in action?

We’ll use these three audiences below to demonstrate how we break down consumer data into easy-to-understand details that let you pair your intuition with on-the-spot insights.

Here’s how you might want to use it.

Making data the superhero with Marvel fans 

Imagine you’re trying to come up with content that really resonates with your superhero-loving target audience. You may have some assumptions about this action-obsessed consumer you want to connect with, but you just want to make sure you’re heading in the right direction. 

After creating an audience and running the instant audience insights tool, you see that some of your spidey senses are true. You’re spot on about Marvel fans being mostly male millennials, but you quickly notice some of your bases weren’t covered. 

With this tool, you could see that almost 30% are thinking of taking a domestic vacation in the next 3-6 months and 38% find out about new brands and products through search engines. 

Winning a slam dunk with sportswear buyers

Let’s say you wanted to double-check that what you’re thinking aligns with the cold, hard data. You’ve got a hunch that sportswear buyers are mostly female Gen Zs fascinated by fashion – because you’ve seen streetwear trending all over TikTok. 

A quick look at the results shows that your hunch wasn’t quite on the mark in some areas. Sportswear buyers are actually mostly millennial males, and their biggest interests are music, food, and drinks. Time to restrategise at half time. 

Finding indestructible insights about Despicable Me/Minions fans

For this audience, you’re sure you have it easy. In your mind, Despicable Me/Minions fans must be Gen Alphas that want brands to make them feel like they’re a part of an exciting community. 

You’ve convinced yourself it’s a straight shot, but the data throws you a villainous curveball. To your surprise, you discover that Despicable Me/Minions fans are mostly made up of millennials with full-time jobs, and 62% of them expect brands to be socially responsible. 

How it all comes together

Instant audience insights give you a real competitive edge. This rapid research tool is your secret weapon when you want to move quickly with data-led decisions that will help your brand expand its reach and explore new avenues for growth.

With instant audience insights, the key to understanding your consumer without any delay is truly at your fingertips.
