ExactTarget Launches Audience Builder, Enables Marketers to Identify Target Audiences in Real Time
Global interactive marketing provider ExactTarget launched its new data segmentation application Audience Builder today, giving marketers a powerful solution to consolidate, analyze and take action on customer data in real time.
“Audience Builder provides a powerful solution that puts marketers in control of their data to gain real-time insights, identify emerging trends and create a common view of each consumer without having to rely on assistance from IT to run queries or consolidate data.”
Built as an application on the ExactTarget Interactive Marketing Hub, Audience Builder provides an intuitive drag-and-drop interface that enables marketers to consolidate and segment data from any source to create targeted audiences for campaigns across email, mobile, social media and the Web.
“Effective marketing is built on organizations truly understanding their consumers – everything from their engagement across interactive channels to previous purchases,” said Scott McCorkle, ExactTarget’s chief operating officer. “Audience Builder provides a powerful solution that puts marketers in control of their data to gain real-time insights, identify emerging trends and create a common view of each consumer without having to rely on assistance from IT to run queries or consolidate data.”
Key features of ExactTarget Audience Builder include:
- Unlimited Segmentation: Create audiences based on any number of static and behavioral attributes and dimensions using data stored in the ExactTarget Interactive Marketing Hub or in any integrated system, such as Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SAP, Omniture, ATG, Webtrends and more than 60 integrated partners.
